    I personally think privy is just an easy way for the mints to make money (take a common koala or kook or whatever and slap a privy on it..Bam! Instant "rarity"). I won't pay a premium for it, and so I personally don't think others will down the road. ("privy pimpin" as shadow stack would say, he's right). The best way I know to flip is to get the right coin, right when it comes out. When the swans first came out, Apmex had them for a reasonable price. Same with the dragon and phoenix. Same with the gold libertads. Early bird gets the worm. But most releases are probably going to be duds. Also, check out @Numistacker and Shadow Stack's youtube videos on avoiding collecting disasters (more for longer term collectors but good to know) And Shadow Stacks video

    First releases - now there's something to debate! I see many list "First Strike" or whatever and charge a big premium for it. In my view, just because you submit a coin in the first 30 days after minting it doesn't warrant this premium. A PF UC 70 is just that - about as perfect as you can get. So you buy a 20 year old Proof and send it off to NGC or PCGS and it comes back PF (PR) Ultra Cameo 70. So why should a coin submitted in the first 30 days command a Premium? In my view - it shouldn't! If you've kept your beloved coin, safe, secure and untouched for 50 years then decide to have it Slabbed - the number is the number - period! Well that's my opinion. What's yours?

    I had the same problem with USPS, they left my 2 2017 1/4 oz at the front door when it says "signature required" in large letters on the label...

    I have used them a number of times, including my first PM purchase. Very friendly and helpful whatever amount you are purchasing. They have been quite happy on each occasion to look through their sovereigns for me for a particular date or nicer grade. For a first time buyer, going to an established shop where you could see the coins before buying made me a lot more confident about my first bullion purchase. I felt like a king walking out of the shop with my first ever sovereign in my pocket. They usually have chocolate coins that you can help yourself to which makes your purchase and visit even better.

    One of the coins I've been coveting since I began collecting. Thanks to @metalslug I can cross it off my want list. Thanks so much my friend. Great price, stellar packaging.

    is there any point in labelling these "first releases" as in theory, they were all minted on the same day?

    I was in there last Friday, my second visit. Friendly staff who are very helpful. I will be using them again as it's just a short train journey for me on the tube from work. Coins and bars are put into a cloth bag with their logo on, a nice professional touch.

    GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    Doesn't feel high to me anymore, got used to it being £900-1000 now for the past year or so Personally I like buying straight numismatics or semi-numismatics over pure bullion; it gives you a buffer so you aren't so at the mercy of spot price Like the Indian sovereign I think is a decent bet, not too much above spot but very likely to hold a premium even if spot did drop to £800 or so again

    Bullion price so no complaints about the marks. The case was a very nice surprise as it hadn't been listed as being included. The proof coins really are lovely to look at as you catch the light playing on them.

    Collected my coin from BYBs group order from the post office this morning. My first ever 10 oz coin and a nice momento/reminder of lovely family vacations in Vancouver and Toronto recently. No milk spots so far [emoji41] although I'm not too concerned; I Wanted to add 10 oz and this appeals much more than a plan silver bar.
