  1. Hatton Garden price increases

    Im not so sure. They have the simplest of systems in place for selling, its so streamlined it shouldn't be a pain whatsoever. I think the problem is they get caught short on spot too often and it squeezes the cashflow. They have a relatively big team, minimum of 6 people that they have overheads for and they probably pay rent to boot on prime property. If the issue was a pain to sell coins they wouldnt have teamed up with Bairds (my opinion but the logical conclusion) in a buy and supply deal. I think the problem is liquidity and they are fighting for the margins in the lean times. Just my opinion, I could be way off the mark...but the issue is they are making themselves too pricey (their problem is my gain)
  2. Hatton Garden price increases

    I was having a chat with another dealer about this, my gut says they are struggling.
  3. Hatton Garden price increases

    Watch this space, I am negotiations to be able to consistently supply sovs a spot plus 3 in bullion condition. I can also probably do a small discount for quantity.
  4. Ok Ill eat my hat. got it wrong on the 8000 call in the short run

    Ive got a gold proof laying about somewhere. Doesnt help with info mind you.
  8. GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    I am going to have a long hard think about what you have said for sovs. I can fill that void of spot plus 3 with consistent quantity as well, whilst I feel like its a kick in the teeth I am more than happy to fill the void they have now left, I can certainly do savings on bulk.
  9. GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    I think they are struggling, Ive sensed it for a while
  10. GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    I think it to do with how much it costs to source. Im not sure the changes are for the better mind you. I asked about their buy to supply deal and Im not convinced it will work for them. One of the reasons people buy is so they can add purchases together and its not possible at the lower prices. Now you have to buy consistently and pay postage each time. They are still taking bank transfer for products they have in stock.

    Death of Rome?? It turns out Hatton Garden are going down the sourcing line. You are limited to 5 item per order and must pay card on most items. They have also increased the price because of this.
  12. You can buy and sell any product. Master the product knowledge and you are onto a winner. Don't ever be too reliant on one supplier mind you.
  13. Ive taken delivery of a few monster boxes off GS from my pre-order sales. Ive never had an issue with them, Usually they are sealed by the mint and sent intact. Like Mr-Dead they took around 3 or 4 days from start to finish. Saying that, I am wanting to put in an order for a monster box of brits sooner rather than later, I think the europeanmint is cheaper, even with courier costs when you buy a monster box, last time I checked the saving was over 100 pound.
  14. wanted Australian lunar 2, 2oz coin case & coins.

    I have a fair few 2oz Lunars. Drop me a PM. **I am going to bed I have work tonight, I will get back to you asap
  15. Before I get into what has happened I would like to say that I am a really laid back person and very pragmatic. I understand companies get it wrong sometimes and thats part and parcel of business but how I have been treated is absolutely disgusting. I opted to buy 3 BU sovereigns and 3 Piedforts on 19 months credit at 0%. This was cleared and my initial payment had been put on my credit card. I then got a phone call saying that unfortunately I could only have 5 months credit, so I agreed to drop the 3 BU sovs and keep the 3 pied forts over 5 months credit - I was ok with that, life is not always fair but I was assured the 3 coins were mine (twice in fact over 2 phone conversations). I then got an email yesterday saying it was over 3 Months credit, so I sent an email back asking for was going on and politely asked if they could phone me to discuss. I then get told that the coins that I have been told on 3 occasions are mine are not in stock. They have put the price up and sold my coins to someone else. I don't get angry about a lot of things but what a bunch of (insert appropriate word here) Fuming!
  16. As someone who has worked in a supermarket for longer than they care to admit, they mess around with the prices a lot. There are so many things on social offer that are just not really an offer...
  17. Today I bought.....

    If you would do that, Im sure I could sort you out for something in return I believe that silvertogos, sister company has them in stock at a good price.
  18. Today I bought.....

    Ive always wanted some dos peso, not sure why but they seem like cool coins to own. Something like the 5 Ducat of Holland
  19. Gold sovereign shieldback prices

    Yes, sovs sell for spot plus 20/25. That is the industry standard, they are so few are far between at that price. A fine shield back is a 260 coin.
  20. Today I bought.....

    Very Nice!
  21. Gold sovereign shieldback prices

    230 for a shield back... That book is wrong. I have never paid that price. Infact at that price, Id buy 20
  22. Bottle Cap Shaped Coin

    Its no problem, I actually went halves with him on the order as neither of us wanted to buy 50 They have really grown on me having seen them in person, if you don't have it already it really is a talking point!
  23. Bottle Cap Shaped Coin

    I’ve put up a sales post for these 😊
