    @artincoins Merged with previous discussion.
    Doesn't seem like much interest most likely due to the high premium they carry.
    It will most likely still sell out eventually due to the lowish mintage.

    Before the credit card/debit card rules changes, debit cards used to have a fixed fee for merchants.  For the sake of maybe 20p Transferwise used to allow you to make the transfer using debit cards upto £2k without any additional charge as it was more convenient/better service for the customer.  Since the change, the merchant fee is a % so they now have to pass this on.  It does mean that to avoid additional fees then you have to use bank transfer.

    Transactions which don't involve goods or services have always been classed as "cash advances" but there are a few (at least used to be) card issuers which didn't class it as such but probably long gone now.
    You also need to check that interest in not charged on the cash advance because I believe interested is occurred from day one unlike standard purchases which only incur charges after the statement payment due date.

    When we talk about taxes it is for when it reaches our home country.  In the UK, anything imported from outside the EU is liable for VAT (+duty if applicable) at the point of entry if valued over £15.

    4 Years ago I bought a large out door storage box.  The lid hinge snapped maybe a year or 2 ago but it was still usable but over time the lid started to warp because it was now only hinged on one side.
    A couple of weeks ago I decided to contact the manufacturer.  My box was not discontinued with a newer model but I'd thought I'd still ask about buying a replacement hinge.  Turns out they could supply the part (most likely still same part in newer model) but it wasn't in stock.  They would supply the part free of charge but I'd have to wait and today, 11 days after they put in the order for me, it turned up.  Very happy with the after sales service especially since the product is now 4 years old.
    Had a similar experience with a coin from the New Zealand Mint.  Coin was damaged so sent back to the dealer in Germany at their cost.  Replacement coin was perfect but the holder was scuffed.  Instead of contacting the dealer I contacted the New Zealand Mint and explained the situation.  A couple of weeks later a new holder and box was received.
    I've done this kind of things quite a few times over the years.  Some times it's just easier to contact manufacturers directly rather than going through a retailer and even if an item is out of warranty, a decent manufacturer will hold replacement parts for as long as they can and in some cases the same parts may still used in their newer products.
