    Yes, but then when forum members build up trust and trade between each other, i'd rather do that.

    I've only begun buying from the US in the last year. 4 times it was all gold, twice I had to send a declaration form to declare it was investment gold and the other 2 times it just arrived - nothing extra to pay in all cases. The only problem is on silver and/or mixing a silver/gold order.

    Finally picked up the two lovely gold one - ouncers that I bought in the dip a few weeks ago. A 2017 eagle and a 2017 anniversary Britannia. Nice to contrast the colour and the designs, with the US eagle of course being 0.917. Sorry about the poorer photo of the Brit - but I am reluctant to take it out of its capsule. Regarding the designs; while the Eagle is very good (and with a big ounce you can see more of the finer details of the eagles nest and the White House ), it does make me appreciate that the Royal Mint here in the UK is willing to take some risks and plays with new tweaks to the designs on the front and back. Lets face it, we do grumble about the RM and pile into them when they get it spectacularly wrong (eg the 2018 lunar dog) but at least they take the risk. On the US side - i guess it would take another revolution to change the design. Maybe President Trump will order a new design - with the genius himself on both sides!?
    Anyway - back to the final gold coin - a cool pickup from a visit to the LCS when in the States, a 1923 Melbourne sovereign for the same premium as any other bullion.  Not in pristine condition, but this was a pretty low mintage by 1920s standards so quite pleased with that.  That one goes into the semi-numismatic pile of sovereigns😊.
     
    Also snagged a few of the annual silver 1 ounce designs - but my favourite by far is the Netherlands Lion restrike.  I could only find the bullion version, but i see now what all the fuss is about....and i may need to track down a proof! Some nice 1990 Canadian maples in OMP - i do like the old maples, and these are in great shape. Maybe being in the wrapper prevents spotting ?

    Yes they do.  There are several precious metal dealers that accept bitcoin payments as well as a raft of other retailers in various sectors.  There are also bitcoin Visa cards that tens of thousands of people are using to spend on anything and everything.

    Recieved these two beauts today from HGM. Always tend to receive newer sovs from the lucky dip, others tend to get the older sovs. Doesn’t bother me too much. I suppose that’s the point of a lucky dip! Keeping my fingers crossed for an oldie or two at some point though. Maybe in the next purchase 🤞🏻
