    I first started buying pure bullion in the late 1990's and collecting coins (old numismatic stuff in the 1980's) - I now feel very old

    "The oldest coin in the hoard was made in 1847 and the youngest in 1915, suggesting the coins were hidden after this date."
    These reporters are real brainboxes aren't they?

    Those look like they are in very good condition, what does the Royal mint think they are doing?

    There was an article in Moneyweek about this a couple of weeks ago. You can probably view it online.
    There were some surprising places mentioned.
    Myself, I'm happy where I am. I already live in a beautiful area and all my family are within 15 miles. Only downside is the weather.
    I've been to some great places on holiday with fabulous climates but I always think what the hell would you do with your time if you retired there, just sit around in the sun and drink yourself to an early grave.

    Todays update is that the packages seem to have appeared at Coventry Parcelforce and were downgraded to a different service level for some reason. I believe both are now on the way to the USA and one may have already arrived so good news I hope.

    I've heard that these are selling so well they've decided to increase the mintage to 5 million and double the price.

    Assuming those nasty marks over the dragon's head are on the coin not the capsule, it's a no brainer return it. Unless the coin is as described of course.
