    Received two packages today one from @BackyardBullion acting intermediary for the sale of 1 oz Gold Queens Beast Lion coin between @Bizzle and myself. BYB packaging as always excellent. The last 1 oz Gold Lion I was after helped me to complete stack of 10. The European Mint delivered the last shipment of 1 oz Gold Queens Beast Coins the set Bull. European Mint communication and packaging has been excellent. My stack gold now complete until next QB 1 oz Gold release. Collected 10x of each 1 oz QB Gold coin. Going into private non-banking related safety deposit box but it will be a real shame when I don't have them nearby to hand any longer.

    So after selling 4 of my gold coins here last week, this is what I had my eye on and purchased! I really really like it (i dunno why, maybe just me)! 2018 Dragon & Phoenix 1 oz Gold coin (to go alongside my Silver Dragon and Phoenix). I did try to price match to a European dealer i had used before, but in the end went with gold-silber-muenzen with no issues whatsoever and with big thanks to google translate and transferwise!

    Two very small Mexican gold coins (2018 1/10 BU Libertads) and for contrast - a stunning 2 ounce silver Mexican mint aztec calendar. Then a 1 ounce QB Griffin - in platinum. Probably not getting all of them in platinum, but this design is very striking in it.

    Congratulations on coin @JCRJM! The 1989 sovereign is an absolute stunner. In the meantime I received a coin half the face value but double the weight.

    Sold all my gold, got stung

    I think you done the correct thing because you were invested in something you didnt understand. Selling a long term investment on current thinking doesnt make sense to me. If you can be swayed with current world situations it was never a long term investment i dont think.

    Another haul of silver - some nice condition vintage Libertad BU from 2002 and 2005, a tube of Oriental Border Britannias, more Kooks and Krugs, a Panda and some slabbed QBs, and a few more QB 1/4 gold BUs. Also trying to upgrade the quality of my Morgans - so I am pleased with this 1904 O Morgan. Always looking for MS 70 candidates in that bunch (i found some ! ). Others got the typical scratches on the QEII face...

    This is one lovely piece not for the faint hearted. Only taken from the box to picture. £1450 Posted Insured UK. Cheaper than anywhere else I have found in the UK. Happy to send more pictures proof pictures act. May consider part ex for some bullion but would need most in cash. Please bear in mind this is bullion. However probably the best looking bullion piece I have ever seen from Royal Mint.

    Just for future reference the issue about Brexit is not about gold it is about Sterling. Gold is not going to go down the plug hole because of Brexit. What the UK does is neither here nor there. The British Empire was thrown away financing WWII when peace was the stroke of a pen away, after that we became a virtual irrelevance. So unless the Bank of England comes clean about stealing all the gold and selling it, the UK's antic aren't going to make a big impact. If Brexit does not go the way the powers that should not be want it then expect Sterling to be pounded (to use a pun). This is exactly when you want to be in gold. When things look dodgy go to gold. You should have sold on the forum. The coins would have sold over the weekend especially as it is the end of the month when quite a lot of members are paid. i would say this is THE safest place to sell. If you sell to longstanding members you will get paid. A few months ago i bought a sovereign on the forum. It did not turn up. The member refunded me. Then it turned up and i sent the money back.

    Thought I would share an interesting experience that me and Mrs BYB shared in today! We did a craft fair! Here was our stand Massive thanks need to go to Mrs BYB who not only sat and helped run the stand all day, but also did SO MUCH to prepare for it! Check out her hand cut and stitched sign! She also made the most awesome photo book/portfolio for customers to browse (bottom right of the table). Now, to the day itself. We knew it was going to be a hard sell today. The average craft fair goer will probably not be looking to spend £50 - £100 on an item (part of the reason we brought some copper rounds along for fun!). But we wanted to take a chance and experiment with a new avenue of potential sales and customers. The stand was about £50 and probably another £150 for all the other items/crafts we made to make the stand possible. I am happy to say we had some sales of silver, so it was a successful day, and we also sold a fair few copper coins so we came out feeling pretty good about things. But the biggest success was how amazingly interested people were about our products. At one point we had a gaggle of people 3 to 4 people deep looking at and talking about our silver. So many compliments on the products and hopefully this will lead to some "after fair" sales. Certainly lots of people were keen on custom made gifts for weddings, christenings and the like. So, overall it was a very fun day. Was it a money earner? No. Nevertheless it was fun to talk about my business with people and hear in person the feedback and compliments! Thought I would share our experience, thanks for reading!
