    I like sovereigns and quarter oz sizes because if you are not selling back to a dealer, someone (e.g on this Forum) can usually afford to buy them back. Should gold double in price (you never know), less people will have £2,000 to hand than £500. Just a thought! ? You want a smaller coin / bar with the lowest % over spot possible I think.

    Likely a quick fund raising scam. Basically a way of getting an interest free loan - they sell 20, get £250 immediately in paypal - then about 2 weeks maybe before people start getting suspicous that their item has not arrived. Case opened - ebay steps in and refunds. Buyer has £250 for 3-4 weeks with no interest.

    Yes I think it’s absolutely either a scam or a mistake. Ebay is a fraudsters playground and I don’t trust it at all. But I’m happy to risk £12. We shall see. Even if something does arrive, I would question its authenticity and have to get it checked. If it did turn out to be real then perhaps @BackyardBullion Can melt it a poor it into something pretty for me

    Do you buy new or secondhand gold?

    I started with new coins as I was obsessed with mint condition but now six months in ive moved to bullion sovereign from all sorts of years. I enjoy having all the different types and sometimes you even get lower premiums this way

    This may well be the nicest coin I own, had to get it to match my BU version. These will be so sort after imho with a mintage of only 750, had to grab this PF70. This is only available in the 5 coin "long set", which were 3300 RRP and have sold for 5300 on ebay already, only a few for sale atm at 6-8k.

    I have recently picked up some cool boxes from a flea market and Mrs BYB had the inspired idea to have them with some silver shot in to create a "pirate treasure chest" style look. Really fun look and feel as a great gift or simply a cool way to display some silver shot. I have 3 boxes available - in two designs. I have 1x Anchor design and 2x Dolphin designs at the moment. The boxes are priced at £10 per box They hold a maximum of about 250g of silver shot. The silver shot is priced at 50p per gram Postage will be of your choice. So, a 100g box of silver would be £60 + postage a 250g box of silver would be £135 + postage International buyers: postage will be extra - ask for an accurate quote. I am also quite happy to combine postage with any group orders or other orders you have made (silver forum bars etc). Payment via Banks Transfer or via Paypal G&S +5% or F&F PM or reply here if you are interested!

    Congo Silverback Gorilla 2018

    Still no news about the Congo Silverback Gorilla serie for 2018? I really like this serie so far. I hope it is not discontinued, would be a shame.

    Pity. It's a mess up like that that has long lasting effects, especially for those who are buying it on the basis that it's a proof. I wouldn't be able to tell the difference without you pointing that out. It is a masterpiece, though.

    Do you buy new or secondhand gold?

    I'm going sovereigns lots of different varieties and can assume a greater collection than just saving for a 1oz coin ?

    Scrooge McDuck arrived in the post today but is destined for a work colleague who models himself on this character. I'll probably get myself a couple now I've seen one up close.
