Not sure if your calculator is working, but BBP 2014 sov, is £203. That is 10% over spot. 

 

You need to buy 1000 sovs to get 4% over spot. Not very realistic. 

 

You need to check the small print, it says "FROM" 4% over spot

if i were to be buying gold bars i would be trying to get a 1oz example from each refiner, so as i be familiar to the packaging/style/assay/appearance/type of plastic encapsulation.

I prefer collecting gold coins personally. When in early stages of collecting gold coins, buying your first sov, krugerrand, maple, eagle, buffalo is exciting, though it may be just me who is sad lol

Not too keen on the umicore bars, the bar comes in no cert packaging and the design is very simple.

 

There are a lot of fakes circulating - sure this one is genuine but may put off some buyers (like me ;) )

I always get excited when opening 1oz Gold coins esp Pandas,kangaroo,buffalo., after years I still get slight butterflies in my stomach. The other day I got my first 1oz Gold Libertad I found it very exciting, maybe I'm sad or We are greedy  :D

I don't on fractional coins  :(

I'm not following your point about their username.

 

Whilst the pictures are poor, they offer returns and have good feedback score so I think the risk is low for someone that wants these sought after shield backs.  They mention it has some scratches so probably they just want to shift it sooner rather than later.  I've seen many go for £250 on eBay so for someone looking out for an older sov I think it's a low risk buy and they normally command a higher premium.

That they know about sovereigns so it seems unlikely they would list something as a bargain not knowing what it is 

 

I personally don't know anything to know if it's a good deal or not

I actually think the vendor has listed it in error as a buy it now. He has other shield backs for £439 and £449 buy it now. It may have intended to put it as an auction with a start price of £195. I've seen it done before...

Did you phone them or did you get a reply to an email?

A very polite email replied within an hour, bought from them before and they were first class, once I got my head around the payment system

I've made a few purchases from them but I am yet to receive a reply to my emails. 1st time I had to phone instead. 2nd time was just an enquiry so spent money elsewhere.

Won't stop me buying from them but would have liked a reply of some sort even if a day late.
