    Today I Received.....

    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...

    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

    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

    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

    Arrived today- recent eBay pick ups, and coins from @fiveshotdon & @arshimo2012. The 2012 Half was purchased on behalf of a Forum member who lives outside of the UK but he has kindly agreed to swap it with me for my NGC Graded Half- I now have all this Sovereign year date PCGS graded. The 2002 Double in time, will be going off for conservation & grading as it has fingerprint marks.

    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...
