    Finally tracked down a 1904 Half Sov to complete my Edward, London Mint date run. It's the lowest mintage of the lot and has proved the most difficult to find at a reasonable price.

    2 x 2018 sovereigns. I started collecting 2017 sovereigns last year to fill a tube. I am now up to 22 so a few more and tube 1 done! 1 sovereign on its own can be quite boring (IMO) however once you hit 5 the density of the metal is apparent and it becomes a good way to save money without storage issues.

    I wanted to buy a Danish 10 Kroner gold coin from Andreas Afeldt at The Coin Cabinet today at the London Coin Fair. I had no cash and Andreas didn't take credit cards so amazingly he gave me the coin and asked me to transfer the money to his bank account when I got home. Andreas had never met me before and showed me first hand the trust and friendship that runs through the truly genuine members of the coin collecting community. I was blown away by his actions and I will certainly be buying from him in the future. Thank you Andreas.

    After over a decade of stacking I finally have a strategy! Sovereigns and 10oz Beasts only as I think these will be easier to sell when required. Anyway, 2 x 10oz dragons arrived today thanks to the @BackyardBullion group order which compliment the rest of my 10oz Beast collection - shown next to a 2oz Bull for perspective.

    Q: What do you do when your stepson decides to start selling his stack to buy a flat? A: You buy of course. So today I received 2 x 1oz 2016 gold Britannias. First impressions are, a bit heavier than half sovs.

    Howdy, I have just had to leave the peaceful confines of home and venture into the real world As with everything in life, there is no shortage of things to pee you off in a very short space of time I find out last night, it is a very good neighbor of mine has his birthday today, so nip in the car and shoot to my little local Asda. x5 bottles of different craft ciders and a card - job done, what could possibly go wrong ? I go inside, there are now x8 of those self-serve checkouts, I loathe and just one manned counter in front of the cigs. So I go to the only staff nearest to these machines, and ask "Can I pay for these please" "You have to use the checkouts", I reply "I am at the checkout now, could you please do it" NOPE - muggins here has got to. So, not only am I putting coin in Asda pocket I now having to undertake unpaid work for the privilege. Well, stuff that, that is Asda on the blacklist to avoid now. Well, I'm now back home decided to pen them an email of complaint to get my cash I'm due (see below) I will let you know how I get on and see if I get my wages for today ! Please feel free to copy and use it yourself if it works "Hi Asda Just to make you aware of the minimum wage at work, sadly as you may like to have in an ideal world "I do not work for nothing" I was told today by a surly member of your staff I HAVE to now scan my own shopping, I have to undertake unpaid work. I refer you to "The Modern Day Slavery Act 2015" http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2015/30/contents/enacted namely "Slavery, servitude and forced or labour (1)A person commits an offence if— (a)the person holds another person in slavery or servitude and the circumstances are such that the person knows or ought to know that the other person is held in slavery or servitude, or (b)the person requires another person to perform forced or compulsory labour and the circumstances are such that the person knows or ought to know that the other person is being required to perform forced or compulsory labour. (2)In subsection (1) the references to holding a person in slavery or servitude or requiring a person to perform forced or compulsory labour are to be construed in accordance with Article 4 of the Human Rights Convention. (3)In determining whether a person is being held in slavery or servitude or required to perform forced or compulsory labour, regard may be had to all the circumstances. (4)For example, regard may be had— (a)to any of the person’s personal circumstances (such as the person being a child, the person’s family relationships, and any mental or physical illness) which may make the person more vulnerable than other persons; (b)to any work or services provided by the person, including work or services provided in circumstances which constitute exploitation within section 3(3) to (6). (5)The consent of a person (whether an adult or a child) to any of the acts alleged to constitute holding the person in slavery or servitude, or requiring the person to perform forced or compulsory labour, does not preclude a determination that the person is being held in slavery or servitude, or required to perform forced or compulsory labour." So, It took me a total of 4 minutes to scan my few items, ironically it would have been sooner had the errors the machine made, a staff member still had to put right! So although I will take a wage cut in this instance, ( as I can see Asda dont like paying top dollar! ) to show fairness I am due to be compensated 4/60th of £7.83 for my forced labour today in your store, additionally, I would seek another 6/60th of £7.83 for the 6 minutes it has taken to find my sources and pen this complaint. So 10/60th of an hour in total worked or 1/6th of an hour worked 1/6 of £7.83 = £1.305 £1.30 will be totally fine I will forgo the .005p I am still due as I can see times are hard at WalMart HQ with your CEO C. Douglas McMillon only taking a salary of only $22,179,961 last year, those 0.005p sure do add up Please send payment to the address above, for my work today, please send payment only as a cheque, not as Asda gift card/voucher as this the last time I will be using your store again. Paul PS thanks also for rubbing our noses in it some more, on your receipt " Save Money, Live Better " lol I can you are very right !

    Was going to get some good ole silver bullion but when push came to shove, just couldn’t do it. Walk in walk out. Old school. Reputable shop as always. Just rebalancing the bullion - collectors ratio....maybe a topic for @Numistacker if he hasn’t already covered it. My silver early days bullion purchases satisfies my silver/gold 10%/90% ratio 1985 biscuits with the ice cream lady on the back....with an official receipt with open space to write the recepient’s name on

    A good day indeed going into a three day weekend! Received an 1883-M Young Head Victoria St. George Gold Sovereign in MS61 won in an eBay auction...looks like a nice crisp short tail with incomplete BP. Also two Sovereigns from APMEX “lucky dip” average circulation... A 1912 George V Sovereign and another 1925 George V Sovereign.

    Received the last bit of items while I was away...gold! From auction I won a 1869 Young Victoria Shield Sovereign, Die 33 (AU58) courtesy@BackyardBullion (I am beginning to think that he has all of my earnings from the overseas trip)... Also received a 1987 1/4 oz gold Britannia proof. Regrettably no COA and box, but pristine condition before I put it in a proper capsule.
