  1. Wait for a bus and then three come along. Late evening delivery, sourced locally complete with requisite scuffed cheek. Just bullion and keeping one of each type in both 1/4 oz gold and 2oz silver, so no drama.
  2. Good vibes getting it sorted out. This may or may not be the right moment for levity but hey, hopefully, this will be looked back on happily Parcelforce can be a right pain from experience.
  3. Ordered this one way back in early February I think it was. I'd forgotten all about it. The field really is that wondeful black proof.
  4. You can't go wrong with sovs but if you feel the urge, get a 1/4 Lion at a good price and set it next to a sov for a while and see which one you prefer. QED
  5. Having said that, just bought Peter at 70 quid just today and one each of the upcoming ones at 57. Done and dusted My kid is going to love me
  6. More frivolity
  7. Two 2017 20th anniversary trident privy Rm coins sourced locally.....came in capsules so a nice bonus to keep the two set runs I have up to date
  8. It isn't a 1989 or a 2017 proof sov, that is for sure but it is a first from a major recognised mint of its flagship coin. That will put a floor on the price, wherever that is. Everyone is guessing where that is. Neither optimists nor naysayers know for sure and for the price of a good night out or a tank of petrol, people are willing to pay. That is fine. Nobody else's business. If the majority sell, the price goes down. If the majority keep, it goes up. Now then, back to that good night out....I will take that AND the proof happily. Stay balanced
  9. Knock yourself out https://www.noguchicoin.co.jp Just under £23 each if you buy a roll of 25 as of typing. Like I said. Hardly worth the effort. And unless you are going way way west, you wont be collecting them.
  10. Utterly frivolous buy Antiqued 2016 Queen's Beast 2oz Lion
  11. Probably not worth the cost of exchange rates and shipping for you guys though. In fact, definitely not.
  12. Jaysus ! I got them cheaper on the other side of the planet....ouch !
  13. I have the whole charming set of small handsized illustrated hardcovers as I am reading them to my 2 year old daughter before bedtime Charming stories with gorgeous writing that, when read out loud, hold their attention (and mine). I didn't buy any of the coins. The books are simply wonderful though. https://www.amazon.com/Tale-Mrs-Tiggy-Winkle-Peter-Rabbit/dp/0723247757
  14. 1872 melbourne mint shieldback sourced locally and graded at vf-ef. Seems fair.
  15. Choicebullion has been renamed https://www.benchmarkcoin.com
  16. Tap to see a list of dealers compiled and dont forget this is a good place for deals too. Take your time...you will get to know members here and what goes on. Welcome.
  17. Mine wasnt loose thank goodness. I just popped the lid a little for the photo but I can see how it could come loose in transit. I would advise anyone buying to ask the seller to have the coin capsule taped or firmly secured somehow.
  18. Sourced locally for a not stupid price. Small card on the left is a disclaimer saying the mint takes no responsibility if the capsule has been tampered with.....so if you buy one, video yourself opening it from sealed as proof in case the capsule comes loose. It is not a screw capsule just a push down one
  19. Typo of course.....and juggling a 2 year old at the same time !
  20. Surprise surprise, mcm reloa their gun with more 70s first release black holder krugs now back up to 149 pieces. The algorithmic force is strong with this one...
