    Hello everybody! Mrs Backyard Bullion and I have some good and bad news to share with you all. First, the good news. Backyard Bullion (the business) has been growing well and we are excited at what the future may bring. This leads us onto the bad news. With such success and growth comes the inevitable attention from the tax man. As such Backyard Bullion is required to register for VAT (Sales tax for those non UK/EU readers). This will of course have some significant effects on our business but more importantly for you as our customers. We have always been and always will be, fully committed to the strength and quality of the Backyard Bullion brand and products. The pieces we make are and will continue to be of the highest possible quality. We are a small business (Mrs BYB and myself) and have no plans or desire to hire staff. Each piece we make, be it small or large, will be unique and have been made by us with the same love, care and attention we have always put into our work. This means that effective from 1st April 2019 we will be increasing our pricing to accommodate for part of the VAT liability we incur for our sales. Any items that have been pre-ordered but not paid for will have their original prices honoured even though the payment date might be after 1st April 2019. This seems the fairest thing to do for these pre-ordered items. However, for items ordered or purchased after the 1st April 2019 you will notice the price change. The most obvious product to be affected at this stage is the “1 oz & 250g Silver Forum Bars” that have not yet been reserved/paid for already. VAT registration is something we never envisaged happening at the outset of this business but it is now a reality that cannot be ignored. Whilst the bad news is certainly bad and only time will tell the true effect on the business we are confident about our brand and are excited about future projects we will try to bring to you. We want to finish this announcement with a very large and heartfelt thank you to everyone out there that has supported the brand, be it through our hand poured silver, YouTube channel and group orders over this last 3 years. Your support means the world to us and we will endeavour to continue to bring you the best quality video entertainment and hand poured silver in the future! If you have any comments or questions then please feel free to ask them here on this thread or contact me directly. All the best to you all! Mr & Mrs Backyard Bullion

    Gold Silver not very PC !

    Received the reply below to my question about assuring delivery prior to 12th April. I am surprised a business is allowed to comment on such matters as Bretix. This from a non-British company! Dear customer, Thank you for contacting GOLDSILVER.BE Most parcel leave within 24 hours of receipt of payment. Brexit 12th April ? We doubt it. There's no place for democraty in the EU. May is the EU's puppet. In one year discussions will not be over yet. That's how thing go in EUSSR. Best regards, Christine Customer service

    Today I received some silver building blocks from forum member @OlliesSilverBars. Recently I posted that I had bought some blocks made by Monarch, but was a bit disappointed that they don't interconnect with real Lego bricks. In another thread someone mentioned that Ollie's bricks do, so I bought some to test that out for myself. As the pictures below show, the bricks arrived nicely packed in little black bags, and are the same size as standard 2x4 Lego bricks. They even have the tubes underneath that give Lego bricks their "clutch power" but on the silver bricks they aren't full size. But they do indeed stack with real Lego bricks so it's possible to make a structure mixing up the silver and actual Lego. Being hollow, the bricks are lighter than the solid 1oz Monarch blocks. Of course, the presence of such treasure inevitably draws attention from the criminal fraternity, although small-time criminals are likely to make blunders when in pursuit of their nefarious activities that are likely to bring them to the attention of the law. Better hope the king is feeling merciful...

    Harrington & Byrne sovereigns arrived today. A couple actually feel thinner on the edge than previous sovereigns I have, but the weight ‘feels’ good. I need to get a digital scale. Strange they sell these sovereigns so cheaply, and add all this fancy packaging which obviously adds cost. I don’t understand H&B: selling sovereigns slightly below spot, only 3 per household, all this unnecessary packaging, the weird sales call, no email on order dispatch etc. A strange bunch. Much preferred the process with Bleyer but maybe not the price 😄 Also a small order from STG mainly to get me up to date with the Queens Beasts series. I dare say that’s me for a while or the wife will go crazy.

    Just bought five of the new Perth Mint 1oz silver Dragaon & Dragon billion coins (mintage 50,000). This is the third of this type of Perth Mint coin the first being the "Phoenix & Dragon", the second the "Tiger & Dragon" and now the "Dragon & Dragon". Not sure what they will do for the forth coin, perhaps an Australian theme - Emu & Dragon or Koala & Dragon?? Also bought the second of their Birds of Paradice 1oz solver bullion coin.

    Just a little thank you

    Big thank you to @Pampfan for sorting me out with this U.S Mint pouch for my silver quarters, couldn't find any in the UK at all and nobody on ebay would ship outside of the global shipping programme which charges £20. This guy asks for my address to calculate postage cost and he will get back to me, (I fell for it) 5 days later, he hadn't got back to me, I'm still searching the web for a pouch, I hear the post, there's an envelope covered in stamps of the U.S flag, this guy not only sent me the pouch, he didn't charge me a penny, even for postage, what a guy! Thanks again bud!
