    Unusually, it’s not Mexican- dropped on the doormat today from Atkinsons and swiftly hidden away from the Missus, before I got throttled. It’s a stunner 😯

    A post of thanks

    Hi all, i just thought tonight that after all the negativity we see in the world, 2020 has started and we’re not yet at three months in but we’ve already seen a few events that are making us all seem a little worried. When I joined this forum in summer 2018 I was at home, stuck at home really, I was diagnosed with IBD in July 2018 or as some may know, the debilitating disease know as Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis, I have the latter. I’ve posted this post on the ‘gold’ section as this is where I’ve posted most of my post’s. Maybe not the right place but anyway....(admin move as appropriate) I just thought that after all of the negativity in the world I’d just like to say thanks. I was going to say that my gold stacking started in 2015 when I bought an 1880 Full Sydney sovereign. That was my first sovereign, but as I was made redundant in February 2016, that had to be sold with a lot of other things, shortly after my nana who I was close to died from cancer, I split from my partner and lost my home in early 2018. It was a lot in one year for someone to deal with. So anyway that’s not my point, that’s in the past, as we’ve all been through tough times. I lived through it and came out a better person not yet 30. When I put that sovereign in the post in 2016 it was a year of loss for me and I thought, “You’ll have more of these” and it’s not that I put my happiness in coins, far from it, they’ll be here when I’m not. Gold, silver or any other precious metal will never buy any of us happiness. But in mid 2018 when that chapter of my life was over, hard, bloody awful really. I joined this forum, I’ve asked silly questions at times, having googled the possible answer but as they say “Knowledge is power” which is why I turned to this forum. So after all that. I’d just like to say and this is from, I think, a millennial, just, being born in 88’. Thanks. I really appreciate all the help I’ve had and I’m still learning every day and I hope to be a part of this forum for many years to come. My sovereign collection now stands at 14, does that mean anything? No. Not at all. Weeks after being made redundant I started my own business the same week I posted my only Sovereign. It paid off. Some doubted me but I never doubted myself. So whilst those coins will never bring me true happiness, I lock them away knowing I did ok from that person who had to leave everything from 2016-2018. I have a new partner and try to forget the past three years. Now I’ve gone on enough.... I wanted this post to be a post of thanks for those who have helped me on this forum and a post for those who may be struggling, it does get better. Hang on in there. We’re all on this forum, we all discuss gold, silver, whatever precious metal. We all have difficult times. The above is my life for the past 3/4 years and I didn’t find that easy telling you all. But amongst us collectors, happiness and mental health is and must always be number 1. Look after yourselves. Just believe in the magic of new beginnings. I was once lost, now I’m not. If you’ve read this far, thanks, just remember, you’re not and never will be alone. Lets spread some positivity. Smile today, it’s Sunday, just smile because you can. Smile because you woke up and if you can’t smile for yourself, smile for me. We’re not the gold we buy, the silver we stack away, that lives with us. It’s an extra. We’re all gold in some way, to someone, just remember that, we can all shine. 😊 #bekind #itwillgetbetter #mentalhealthmatters #lookafteryourself #happystacking

    Ever since I had my first piedfort pound proof silver I have been in love with how nice they actually are. Been saving as many as I can from melt piles regardless of condition. been trying to grab the normal size proof ones too though it seems piedfort get scrapped more than the standard ones. Might antique the lot one day as they have marks etc anyway, might look nicer. Here is the stack so far

    I absolutely love the silver statue products from Heads or Tales, and these are a couple of items that I ordered in the last 3 months that finally arrived today. 46 oz Horus XL+ 30 oz Striking Eagle And since the Horus is the third in the Egyptian Gods series, here is a picture of the whole set.

    Thanks @kneehow2018- not Mexican and for me a different continent entirely. Beautiful Silver & Gold Krugerrands- the 50th Anniversary Gold 1/2oz Proof Krugerrand has a minuscule 800 declared Mintage- rarely available. I think @kneehow has another Gold...if anyone can prise it out of his mitts.

    Lots of deliveries today! 100 1oz 2020 Kangaroos from GSB which came in a nice box, a 100oz bar from Baird and some random jewellery from Royal Mint that I picked up in the sale. Ended up at £14.30 per oz across the 200oz of silver, not bad I think.

    Well I just got back home today from working away due to the virus and thought I would upload some pics including the lovely box from @Alun for my sovereigns which is stunning and some I picked up from the royal mint and a couple I got at the coin show in feb, just waiting now for the coins sent for grading which will be my 1st slabbed, what do you guys think, especially the Hatton 3 coin set, is it 22ct or 24ct? is it worth trying to sell or trade here as I think I would prefer actual sovereigns, I'm still learning as I started in November Look forward to any comments.

    A few slabbed Rand coins. The dealer had a few more, including the rare 1983 piece but I was a bit late... Anyway, there are no PF70s known, so I am quite happy with them. The difference between PF and PF Cameo is clearly visible but between Cameo and Ultra Cameo isn't.

    This is a heads up for anyone, in anyway, in a similar situation ! Some of you may have noticed that the 5huggy has been subdued on the rate of comments/presence on the forum over the last week! I can CATEGORICALLY state the Topic headline of this topic - Allow me to expand - -! In the last week , due to an enormous amount of analysis of the the current "GLOBAL situation" - I have had - (clearly obvious from lack of presence here) - my FOCUS on, the ongoing fiscal and medical situation! "SELF PRESERVATION"! - I apologise upfront for the apparent selfishness of that! I have had a declining/increasing (depends how you view it) chest infection, that has nearly brought me to me knees several times in the last 3 weeks!! As well well as being extremely busy in other ways - I realised I was getting to a serious medical situation! Yesterday evening - I HAD to report to the doctor to be checked out! FYI - I do have underlying C.O.P.D. ! ( https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/chronic-obstructive-pulmonary-disease-copd/) After being checked over - by superb doctor, i was "OFFICIALLY TOLD TO SELF ISOLATE" - as in my present condition, that if I did contact this Covid -19 her words NOT mine - "I WOULD BE DEAD"! There are already 3 cases under serious care at the local hospital! I already have a cracked rib from coughing so much from a "bog standard" chest infection! SO My next apology! I am on "LOCK DOWN" - that means I am likely to be a "little more proactive" on the Forum going forward as it may be MY nicest outlet and form of communication ! CHEERS GUYS and GALS - 👍 I have just gone into MEGA PROTECTION MODE --- =- SORRY for the RANT! As i stated at the start of this diatribe, !!! PLEASE anyone in a similar situation - -DON'T LAUGH THIS ONE OFF! Fer GAWDS SAKE TAKE CARE Nervous (not panicking) 5huggy! 👍🤣

    Statement from Atkinsons

    A Note from Paul Atkinson Dear all, I would like to give all my clients, old and new, the latest information regarding availability of products to buy and the shipping of new and outstanding orders. You will sadly see that there are many fewer products than normal available for you to buy on our website. Frustrating though this is, there is good reason and I wanted to explain how this has come about. I will only ever sell you products that we either have, or I know for certain that we can source the physical material in order to complete the transactions. All orders currently placed are allocated to clients and will be stored in our secure storage. There are no silver bullion coins, no silver bars and no gold bars available on the website. I cannot in any way guarantee when these would be available to ship to you as I can't buy them from my suppliers due to factory closures. Therefore, they are not for sale. They still have to be manufactured, shipped from Switzerland, or other worldwide destinations and then once delivered to us we would then have to ship them to you. So clearly it would be wrong of us to sell you any of these items until the factories begin production and the products are available. Our website is showing you products which we have available for you to buy as we know our suppliers still have physical stock of these goods. Over the last 15 years since I started dealing online with the bullion products, I have developed extremely strong and trustworthy relationships with our preferred suppliers in the UK and around the world. These relationships have now allowed us to receive daily updates of products which are still available to sell to you. If and when the physical product is no longer available, then we will remove those items and further reduce the offerings on our website. The frustration for us and all our clients is that our store and despatch centre are temporarily closed following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday evening, and we do not know when we will be able to return due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This means that we will ship every parcel, in due course and as soon as we possibly can but right now, we cannot give you a despatch date. It is a temporary pause in despatch until we are through this crisis. Logistically there are some difficulties here for us to overcome and thanks to our amazing staff and support from carriers and suppliers, we have already built a supply chain around our despatch centre in preparation for a return to work as soon as possible. In chronological order as best we possibly can, we will begin shipping each and every order to you. Our despatch centre is ready to go at a moment’s notice, fully staffed and stocked with many products. Our first storage centre is also full of stock and our second storage centre is just receiving deliveries this week so that our "just in time" supply line can work as efficiently as possible as soon as we are free from the lock down. Enormous amounts of effort and thought have gone on behind the scenes to make sure we are in the best possible position when shipping begins. We can't wait to get going but we are a responsible team and family who treasure not only the lives of our team and family, but we also respect the fact that any illness may result in a detrimental burden put on the amazing NHS staff at this time. Stay Home -Save Lives is the mantra. At Atkinsons we fully understand your frustrations about not having your product delivered as fast as we normally would, and we are mindful that several customers ordered before the lock down, in this instance we sent all the available items from your order that we could as our suppliers delivered items to us. We can only ask for your patience and understanding. We are on top of this situation and would ask you to please understand where this world is at this historic time. We do hope this allows you some insight in to how much we have prepared for what is coming and how we can assist you best. As we are now working remotely and down to reduced phone lines, please call but be patient or use the online chat facility which we will man every day as best we can from 9-5. Hopefully the above will save you asking about when your order will be despatched. It is whenever it is safe to do so. We really appreciate your patience and thank you for your loyalty. - Paul Atkinson

First in the series, Moonstruck... Second, What Lies Within... Third, Moon Gazer... Fourth, Apache... Fifth, Power of Three... And last, sixth, Snow Kisses...

    Public Announcement - Due to my low feedback I have agreed to sell @InvestInCoins888 my Gold Rectangle Dragon for £1299 + £7.60 RMSD. I will be sending the bar to him first before he sends me payment. I have agreed to this first because of his high positive feedback and second because he is paying above spot for my bar. He has allowed me to make this public so everyone will be aware of the deal should it go south. @InvestInCoins888 I will be at the post office first thing tomorrow morning and you will receive the bar on Saturday where you will pay the agreed amount of £1306.60. On that note Rectangle Dragon Bar SOLD. Thank you for your attention.
