  1. Started in 2010, shortly after my daughter was born. Being a newbie I foolishly bought a couple of tubes of silver Maple leafs instead of Lunar Tigers, which were available at roughly the same price from Coininvestdirect (forerunner of Silver to go). Can't really imagine stopping, unless the market moves spectacularly.
  2. Screw caps.
  3. 1992 10 oz proof Kookaburra
  4. Royal Mint 1/4 oz monkey and sheep
  5. Couldn't resist and ordered one of each, along with a 1/4 oz Dragon from Atkinsons, which are also on special offer, along with the other 1/4 oz Beasts. Ouch all round.
  6. 1820 Crown, 1911 Sovereign, 2005 1/4 oz proof gold Britannia.
  7. I can't speak for others, but I now only list on ebay when I get decent selling offers (reduced fees). I therefore make more from selling on eBay than I would from selling on the forum.
  8. They're probably in the middle of flogging a full roll or two and don't want to take a picture of each individual coin. I have sympathy with that and do the same myself, but you have to be sure that everything you ship is as good as the stock photo. Any issues, such as spots or toning, should be mentioned in my view.
  9. 10 x 5 Pesetas
  10. 'but cmon guys in the uk why are you paying £22 for phils, noahs ark etc that's about 50% over spot ' I suspect most on this forum aren't paying this.
  11. Welcome - I like the RCM 10 oz bars too, but only have a couple. They're hard to find at the right price here - pesky VAT.
  12. I guess there must be 2 different versions for the same Anniversary. The Royal Mint are catching on fast.
  13. He may well wonder what's hit him!
  14. Option 1 takes it. 1/4 oz gold lion turned up, along with a milky but free 2 oz silver lion.
  15. I can only state that in 15 years of using eBay I've never lost money under these circumstances - I guess I'm just more comfortable with eBay and the supposed 'risk' than others. Each to their own, I just wasn't expecting to be judged quite so harshly in what was meant to be a 'fun' thread.
