  1. I sleep better with stack sat in local safe deposit box away from home £150 per year, £12.50 month, £2.88 week for the smallest box. Also keep some personal papers, passport, USB drive with login infos, cold storage crypto wallets. You can store a fair bit of small stuff in a smallest box size Never put all your eggs in one baskets though having your stack all in one place Having a big safe at home, if it were discovered by a burgular, he may very well return another time maybe even with friends while you or your family are in to ask you to reveal its contents, maybe even with added encouragement of the potential rewards inside
  2. @S2G this may be of help to you with your web site
  3. Little additional follow up - I ALWAYS liked how coininvest.com in Germany, Silver To Go'es big bother Offered the tool in the sorting drop downs the option of "Best Price Per Oz" https://www.coininvest.com/en/gold-coins/#?sorting=best_price_per_oz_asc&grouping=country_id&page=1 With your sight bringing in so many live data feeds for price doing the number crunching, to pin point at a glance, the current best value £ gold per oz, from the pool of ALL UK dealers. That would be ace !
  4. BRAVO - great little web page ! Really good that I can see at a glance what the best value is. Great time saving tool, Any form of time saving gets a thumbs up from me If a newbie asked me "where would be the best priced sovereign from a reputable dealer", i would have just defaulted to saying Atkinsons of the top of myhead. Looking at the figures on your site, IM WRONG ! Points of note from me ! not moans, not complaints, feedback to build on 1.totally great it shows the % over spot. This is what used to make HGM SO GOOD and a big factor that made them build their rep & business. Since they changed, this part of their business model, they have just lost a lot of my custom this past 18 months just for this reason You knew the vast majority of stock was ALWAYS +3% over spot , simple as, PILE IT HIGH SELL IT CHEAP - 1/10s, 1/4's or 1oz. Great in the background it crunches the numbers to show at a glance where is current best value. big time saver !! 2. I would use Royal Mint Bullion as the benchmark price and compare others to this to it. ie saving £9.85 you would pay at the Royal Mint. Also to show to Joe Public how uncompetitive that actual mint that makes the sovereign is ones of the dearest to buy from ! 3. Other dealers to add, ukbullion.com, ATSbullion, bleyerbullion, have used them all and can be very competitive on price. You may as well list maybe change JewelryyQuarterBullion to BullionByPost as i think how most folk know them by. It highlights what a rip off they on on price in most cases to. 4. As other have said, with time add other coins, krugerrands, maples, usa eagles, fractionals. queens beasts, world gold coins, slabs would be a great addition long term 5. I dont feel it needs all jazz and razzamatazz to funk it up. it does what it says on the tin. shows your the cheapeat source at a glance, it doesnt needs to be over complicated IMO 6. I would very happy to pay a one off fee for yearly access to it. maybe keep the sovereigns price for FREE use access 24/7 (the hook in, to show how it works) and add all the additonal coins & fractionals as a chargeable extra say £10 yearly fee would be fair and probaly be made back on buyers first purchase 7. I know its not possible but prices of gold items for sale here on the silverforum here are often lower still, ......well when im selling they are lol WELL DONE YOU @S2G
  5. .............. " We're on an all time high " Whoop Whoop !!
  6. Yeah i agree, think we'll keep growing slowly, as brexit causes £ to devalue further towards departure date later in year. $1 = £1 incoming in future. So no Micky Mouse land, MAGA hats or supersized In & Out Burger meals for me anytime soon
  7. Here yee here yee ! Gold down -£16.60 in 24 hours - Sell Sell Sell - we are going back to £700oz We're all doooooooooooooooooooooooooomed !
  8. From experience selling gold here, just sell at spot (common bullion items ie Krugerrand) stuff you want a wee bit more for just state a flat price you are happy with. Plus price to sell and gets you return custom, don't just think of £ & pence good luck with your sales @Cornishfarmer
  9. and what can we detect for here in the UK - Chicken Nuggets
  10. To Royal Mails credit, Over the past 25+ years dealing online & mail order. Any time I have had to deal with Royal Mail for a damaged parcel/late delivery outside of service level agreements, they have dealt with everything professionally & in vast majority of cases have favoured with me, so dont lose hope

  15. Rather than having photo "overload" showing close ups of every coin, I have kept everything together. If you want close ups of any coin, front/rear let me know via PM or thread reply I forgot to mention condition, as with all my sales, i describe everything as BULLION condtion. Coins/bars, may have been handled/tested in the past. I have always tried to put in capsules where possible. I hardly ever deal in proofs etc. You are buying for the precious metals content. Not for the condition of coin.
  16.

  17. I have had a listen to your video above and this comments is not a dig or insult, it is genuine feedback from a guy who has been self employed since 22, over 20+ year with several successful & profitable businesses under his belt. I have mentored others in business and sold over 500,000 products on eBay since 1998 Whenever you choose to start your own business, it should fulfil these commandments for it to be a success. The same applies to any business/product/service/software/tool. For any major success business, run it through this equation, and see if it fufills all five Without additional elaboration those other five things are (N) EED (E) NTRY (C) ONTROL (S) CALE (T) IME - NECST - With your hand poured silver business, whilst it is quaint, a niche hobby to be done at your leisure, you've made a good brand and reputation here on the forum building & through social media and earning trusts. But it is going to be so, so so hard for you to make a major profitable success, because it doesn't fulfil hardly any of this equations sadly. If you are worried about going through VAT ceiling, you are resticting any success you may acheive from the outset 1. Need - how many people are in search of these product? as a stacker i personally wouldn't buy it, silver is silver to me, would i pay for it to be hand poured ? probably not. if someone with a genuine interest in precious metals wouldn't buy your product 2. Entry - coupled with the 'need', those seeking silver is limited. You do tick the box with this as you have found a great small untapped niche for these hand poured products 3. Control - This is the most restricting, part of the equation that will strangle your business. you have weights a measures to fulfil, hallmarking, VAT when you hit a certain T/O per annum, you are restricted by how much time you have in a day to fulfil demand, limited by a ceiling price you can charge for the product. With a ceiling on price and small niche market, your are control to what is possible 4. Scale - there are only so many hours in a day, so for you to scale to a profitable, you cannot work x1000 hours in a day to fulfil if demand is there 5. Time - your business model, can never be taken away from time, you cannot pour hand silver while you sleep. you cannot earn passive income from hand poured silver as this is its very selling point. You are building your own limited success by, limiting your development and growth. Again, this is post is not a dig but some feedback from a person who has been there, done it, and got the t-shirt. If you wish these five points above to be explained in detail & elaborated more with examples etc. Download to your Kindle my MJ De Marco "Unscripted" & "The Millionaire Fastlane". It has great reviews, very related, and can save you a ton of wasted efforts in My last point of feedback, is don't fear your accountant, a great accountant is pardon the pun worth his weight in gold, he will save you FAR MORE ££ money than what his fee is if he is doing his job right, and his fees are deductible from your business expenses to. This paid professional is the one there who has studied to deal with HMRC & deal with tax affairs. Worrying of HMRC investigations/etc. I pay £99 (+VAT) for tax investigation insurance, but is also deductible legitimate business expense. Should the worse happen, I'm covered and I have a lower tax bill end of year to.
  18. I had some broken up/loose "combi-bars" available for sale from LBMA approved Swiss refiner Valcambi & German refiner Heimerle Meule for sale, in a seperate thread for a few weeks with some good sales. However, I am still left with some, and I am now looking to clear what bars i have left in bulk, as bars do not form part of my stacking future and also looking to take a little profit from golds recent upside I am selling them for "spot" price = £1,140.41oz / £36.67 gram No premium, 0%. You will never get chance of small bars for this price from a dealer. Stamped & hallmarked - All gold is 999.9 fine - 100% Authentic Bars, they were purchased personally from Baird & Co (London) X1 block of 12g Heimerle Meule 1g bars £440.04 x1 block of 25g Heimerle Meule 1g bars = £916.75 x1 block of 40g Valcambi 1g bars = £1,466.80 Take ALL x3 block above, all 77g in one deal = £2,823.59 Tracked & Insured Special Delivery included FREE of charge with any purchase above, so you are actually getting them under spot ! These are offered for sale for this weekend until Sunday evening, while the markets are closed & price/market static. If not sold by Sunday evening, they will probaly go to Atkinson next week .............................................................................................................................................................................................................................

  22. Everyone thinking you will have the same freedoms on the roads that we have today are sadly wrong. Look how cars are 'bought' these day or sorry leased/hired/borrowed on the never never. Ownership is slowly being taken off the table (thanks america !) Look how money has been thrown by globalised silcon valley tech firms like uber, lyft etc. look how they are developing into ubereats and other brands etc Wait until driverless cars, has been fully sussed out the infrastructure is there for uber to make their brand totally driverless then you have the pay as you go car model ready made, these driverless cars, with not need staff, will be cashless, will be booked through app, they will be at the forefront of the cleanest tech possible. and tracked six ways from sunday by big brother in the background through your phone/bank the great unwashed will be priced out of car ownership and rely on these safe clean cars the general public is slowly being priced out of the car market, look how they are using "clean air" now to further restrict Joe Public motorist, here in newcastle it is proposed to charge any driver using any bridge crossing the tyne will pay a toll to fight for clean air (ie cash cow) ultra low emmissions zone in London look how motorways are changing, smart motorways. privataising of road network Agenda 21 & 2030 is at work here. car ownership for the great unwashed is not part of the equation. on a plus note i will be due to retire around 2040 ish so bring it on £1000 per oz please
