    What a coin.... 🤗😍 1853 Proof, nothing much more to say but wow! I suspect many don't even know this rarity even exists, very very few in existence now. Pictures (especially from phone) don't do it any justice, so I will do a 4k video at some point so others can enjoy it

Managed to bring back into UK fair amount of gold without being questioned by customs. Visited Saint James in Manchester today to deposit some items and took opportunity photograph the family entire gold stack: A lot gold held in the form of Indian jewellery I have no idea how many oz gold is in jewellery form and 18 to 22 carat gold with some items having real diamonds. Best part of the gold stack Queens Beast bullion coins. Six months stacking fortunate picked up most of the stack when spot prices much lower. Most of the jewellery purchased by my late dad when gold spot prices $250 oz.

    Today (well, yesterday) I received two boxes of silver building blocks. There are six 1oz blocks in each tobacco-tin style box. They are branded Monarch Precious Metals- I have seen them mentioned on this site before. As a lifelong fan of Lego, I was slightly disappointed to discover that the silver blocks are a bit smaller than a classic 2x4 studs Lego brick, so they can't interlock with Lego, but they are fun to stack with anyway (they interlock with each other just fine) and I am sure I will never run out of ways to stack them: two 2x4 Lego bricks can be connected together in 24 ways; with three bricks there are 1060 ways; with six bricks there are 915,103,765 ways and the number of combinations of 12 bricks is (currently) incalculable. Here are a few pictures of the bricks and their discovery by Benny's Space Squad (characters from the recent Lego Movie 2) and their attempt to make off with the bricks before being caught- a tense moment ensues before everyone decides to make friends and that everything is awesome...

    Received all seven of my graded coins from @Numistacker, thank you very much for all your help and advice with that process. I'm pretty chuffed with all the grades i achieved. Cant even complain about my undated 20p, at least its genuine! Here they are with a few other graded coins I already had in hand. Still absolutely loving my Gold Dragon & Phoenix! I think thats it for my coin purchases until......... tomorrow! - One more stunning beauty to collect!

    Hand Poured 999 Gold is a go!

    So, this week I have been subtly sharing some black and white photos of a very pretty bar. That is because the colour is not your usual white metal! Courtesy of @Lr103 I have been experimenting with pouring gold! A video of the whole experience will be out tomorrow and I will share it with you all here. Here is the very first attempt.... Not so good, so I chopped it up and tried again! And here is the bar fresh from the furnace.... My leaf stamp compliments the ripples perfectly! 2.24 oz of 999+ gold! We have sent it up to the Edinburgh Assay Office for hallmarking (likely done by laser!) And here is a companion bar made to be the same size....but because it is silver it is about half the weight! Thank you to @Lr103 for putting your faith (and money!) in my skills, I am truly humbled! I also have the gold pouring bug....so watch this space..... If only gold wasn't so damn expensive!

    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

    Sorry it has taken so long to get these posted...I think I have received something for everyone this go around! First off, a beautiful 2018 Mexico 1/2 oz Reverse Proof Gold Libertad! Next up, a superb 1880 $5 Liberty Gold Half Eagle! Thank you very much, @richatthecroft!! Adding another US coin, received an 1874 $3 Gold Princess...a rare piece bought as a lucky dip XF. And, evidently the 2019 Gold Sovereign Matt BU isn’t any easier to take a photograph of...Thanks to the screw-type capsule. Welcome back screw-type capsules!! And “Thank you!!” to @TheCoinConnection, for sourcing this great addition to the sovereign collection! Now, shifting over to some silver...Finally received the 2019 Apollo 11 50th Anniversary $1 5 oz Silver Proof! The 2019 50p Silver Proof 20th Anniversary of The Gruffalo... And lastly, for desert, a 2019 Tuvalu 1 oz Silver The Simpsons Donut Proof...This one is pretty cool in retrospect!

    Today i received my first graded coins from @Numistacker although they all got 70’s, but the reason i wanted them in a slab is because it is easier to look at closely and enjoy. Plus the slabs makes them feel more precious! I even had them in scratch proof slabs but i got some scratches on the plastic 😅 i think ngc’s scratch resistant plastic is just the same as the normal one.

    Gairsoppa silver box restoration

    Recently purchased another Gairsoppa 10oz 4700 mintage bar. Comes in some really nice packaging and high gloss wooden box but unfortunately like a few others I have seen the inner skin of the box was damaged. Stripped it down and had a look and its only made from very thin plastic with a flock coating to give it a velvet feel : A quick 3D modelling session in tinkercad and a replacement is done then 3D printed. Just ordered a flock kit so will look and feel as original but much stronger
