    Absolutely right.
    Wouldn't it be nice to fly long-haul and be able to get out of your seat without climbing over your neighbours or order cocktails in a London or Paris bar without worrying about the cost ?
    I worked with a colleague many years ago who made so much money during the dot.com bubble that he paid for a week's trip to the International Space Station.
    He still had a lot left over for a rainy day.

    Also worrying about inheritance tax, probate, capital gains, lawyers fees, accountants advice, discretionary trusts, kids getting kidnapped and held to ransom - maybe even hurricanes in the Caribbean if you own your own island , yacht or private aircraft. How can you sleep at night with all this pressure ? Funny how native Indians living in the Amazon with no assets appear happy !

    Are you ( were you ) a business seller on eBay and if not, then when would you be automatically classed as a business seller with this level of sales ?
    Did you have any problems with buyers claiming they didn't receive or the coin was not as described ?

    I see that you are a new member; so welcome.
    As you are just cutting your milk teeth on PMs I urge you to spend a few hours on this forum reading up on stuff.
    Try searching on key words and you will find most probably 99.9% of the answers you seek in getting off the first rung of the ladder.

    Yes, you are right. But even with the full £17 shipping you could buy the 10 Britannias you offered for sale here for about £175 which is £55 cheaper than what you are offering.
    I am really not trolling or trying to be negative, just advise for selling on this very savvy forum. 99.9% of buyers on this forum will know they can get the same coins for a lot  less and probably wouldn't buy your coins.
    But, if someone wanted just one coin, maybe they will buy.
    But...
    99.9% of the forum probably also know about the group order as @Bullionbilly has mentioned. They would be able to get one Britannia from this group order for about £17 delivered.

    Please only comment in sales threads with interest to buy/enquires etc.
    I'm sure nobody would appreciate a comment in their sales thread which basically says 'you can get them cheaper elsewhere'.
    If you really want to give advice send a pm.

    My whole collection of 2017 Mexican coins. 
    Think this is almost every type of coin from Banco de Mexico except for the Libertad kilo BU. 
    Have I missed anything?

    Anyone else getting frustrated that 50% of your time these days is installing software updates and operating systems ?
    Almost weekly there is another round of downloading hundreds of Megabytes of updates so what is going on ?
    A solid good working Microsoft Excel starts to show bugs after an upgrade and a week later there is yet another update .. then another ...
    Even Apple changes its iPhone, iPad, and MAC operating systems more frequently now that in the past.
    Maybe adding lots of unwanted and unecessary junk is their tactic to slow down your expensive devices forcing you to buy their newer models ?
    Spending far too much time getting improvements but never quite follow what the heck they are so adding to my grumpy old man status.

    I would not normally comment on other forum members pricing but as you have quoted eBay and GS.be as comparisons you didn't mention the primary dealer in Europe, EMK, who have these in stock today for €39.75. Most of us on here will already know this - sorry - but we do try to help one another on this site.

    Pete got a reaction from KDave in Gold Monitoring Thread £ only   
    Before I buy any coins I always compare HGM and Atkinsons prices as 90% of the time the lowest.
    I decided to buy a one ounce Queen's Beast but was somewhat surprised to see the Royal Mint being much cheaper than Atkinsons for a Griffin.
    I paid £983.03 with free delivery and the coin comes in a capsule from the RM.
    Has Atkinson's mis-priced or is the Griffin price rising following it's predecessor the Lion I wonder, in which case the RM price is a bargain.
