  1. Howdy and welcome from Dundee Scotland
  2. Agree completely, the design isn't strong, they are pushing the price hard which in turn will make profit flipping a lot harder. Just wonder if they took the suns rays from the new Australian Eagle design
  3. Considering the gold 50p set was only £90 more expensive for a 1/2oz more gold I don’t personally think it’s a good buy.
  4. Use a hacksaw and vice, saw around the edges of the slab and it should just come apart
  5. Then don't ask, and i'll quote you "Curious as to what forum members think about the $$ pros and cons of breaking out say a PF69 coin from a holder if you were looking to maximize the selling value" You are asking $$ pros and cons which is basic maths right? I mean, i can count what a submission costs, isn't that $$ pro and con?
  6. You have to think of what you're adding onto the coin every time you submit, if each attempt doesn't get the grade you want then it's more money you've put into the coin that eats up a potential profit or break even, i'm not talking specific coins, i'm talking about how much money you are adding on top
  7. Sal, i've no idea what your coin is, so i can't comment on its value or resale value
  8. @Sal what happens if you do break it out and submit again and comes back the same grade, that will be 2x submissions, just being realistic, each time you submit it takes a little more value off of what you have in it..........At the end of the day, it's your coin, and just my opinion. Added 0 minutes later... What's the cheeky post for? Did you get it graded, if you break it out will a re-submission be free of charge, if it doesn't get the 70 you are looking for will you break it out again and again......Yeah, there's where all the potential profit goes, drains back out as you send for grading, so i don't understand you're childish reaction and response
  9. If you keep adding expense on top of the coin then you might eventually break even
  10. I think you need to do more research before buying, you have a multitude of questions yet you really should understand the basics before buying. Also, if you are buying in Europe, Europe don’t use £s, they use Euros, same as if you’d buy in America or China, they use their own currency.
  11. Lol, it wouldn't be worth anything, the Italian Job was a fiction and not fact, but if we look at the Brinks Mat robbery from Heathrow, 26 million worth was stolen https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brink's-Mat_robbery valued at 87 million in 2018 😀
  12. Another set here for £100 cheaper, if we see a few more sets, then a further reduction to release price might be on the cards 😁 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2019-ROYAL-MINT-5-COIN-GOLD-PROOF-FIFTY-PENCE-CULTURE-SET-KEW-GARDENS-SOLD-OUT/254073469932?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D56004%26meid%3D6dea202feca945f4bc3eb514b495ebce%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D303035634086%26itm%3D254073469932&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851
