    ChardsCoinandBullionDealer got a reaction from Serendipity in Sell Sovereigns for Intrinsic Price! (subject to quality check)   
    Good afternoon! 

    Just letting you know we've increased our buying price on Sovereigns. We're now paying 100% of the intrinsic value! To see how much we're currently paying, have a look at our sovereign selling page or visit our live gold price page for up to date metal prices.

    We're also offering a new new distance buy in service meaning you can sell to us without leaving your house!
     
    EDIT: Based on feedback we have adjusted our buy in prices to 98% as of today (9th April). Please call us prior to sending in any coins as our buy in prices change regularly and this post may not be accurate.

    Good afternoon, 
    Good timing with the question as we were in the process of updating the page to include extra content, the test results and more photos. We also added a conclusion and what we could learn from the process given that the ultimate destructive test by SAO was somewhat of an anti climax .......

    Hi
    I have updated this post as we need to discuss with our director before making a final decision on what we are doing. Will provide an update in due course.

    Good afternoon, 
    I have now seen the coins in question and can confirm they will be sold as "grade C" as they do not qualify as bullion. We used to accept any condition coin as bullion as long as it was within the weight tolerance but this generated too many complaints as customers expect high condition coins even for a bullion purchase. 
    Post wise I will certainly strive to make any more posts more accurate. If it is any consolation I have taken on board the feedback and updated the selling pages to explain the quality check and make it more obvious to call us prior to sending coins in. Hopefully this prevents re-occurrence.

    @sovereignsteve really appreciate the feedback and I will certainly take it to the management meeting for consideration. In an ideal world we would always deal in person as much more can be achieved with a conversation and viewing the coins in person. The internet in general is amazing but it does make communication slightly more tricky. We will review this with an aim of simplicity and consistency in messages we send out.

    Morning,
    Yes our sale items are a pick and mix of products that we accumulate so they will change and at times will suit some people more than others, that said plenty of items are going out so it must just be our pick this time not suiting your fancy @Fastnick. Out of curiosity what is it your interested in and when I am going through stock I will try and make a note for future promotions. 
    Regarding H&B and Buckingham Collection and their promotions one has to be careful as they can be misleading. The initial advert is often a good deal as was the case for the recent sovereign but it is likely this was a loss leader to get you on their mailing lists with new GDPR requirements. H&B are very much a fan of up selling products after registering an interest to flog them more expensive over priced coins like the proof sovereign - we already know this is their ploy but it was also reported here on the forum.  We refrain from this type of marketing  and aim to sell coins in an honest way, so if the deal seems too good to be true do ask yourself why first.....
    @Nick1368Just went to check the price at Sharespixley as we do like to be very competitive on Britannia's, and I can only find this product for "pre-2013 Brits" selling from £1019 - https://www.sharpspixley.com/pre-owned-1oz-gold-britannia-mixed-dates. If you have a link please pass it over.
    Our comparative products are our newly minted Brit (last 5 years) are from £1016 and secondary market brits from £1005.... links at the bottom. Dated coins will attract a higher premium than a pick and mix if this answers your question.......
    Thanks, Ian

    Not sure if it was your spring sale last year but I HAD to buy the Mexico libertad and proof Australia sovereign should have bought the IOM sov too, but this sale I’ve skimmed over and nothing jumps out at all.  I think you’re a great company but need something in the sale to get me reaching for my wallet

    haha yes its not quite a visit in person though we have been known to do this in the past! 
    The US is not out of the question @CadmiumGreen we would just have to agree postage costs as understandably we couldn't offer the UK rates. There is no barrier in terms of geography, value of coins, quantity or weight with our service :D  I might make this more clear on the page but its good to know we have potential customers in the US after only 3 weeks of the new service......

    Morning,
     
    I thought I would inject a little advice for buying silver in the UK........keep your eye open for pre-owned (secondary market) silver as you will only pay the VAT on the profit made by the dealer. You can pick up some great coins at great prices. They are very popular so you have to be quick......we bought in just over 5000 silver maples and within 5 days they were gone! 
    Here's an explainer - https://www.chards.co.uk/blog/special-scheme-silver/259
    These are all our secondary market silver products - https://www.chards.co.uk/products/special-scheme-silver as you can see they are out of stock so set up an email reminder! 
    If you can buy pre-owned CGT exempt coins its a double wammy benefit. That is if capital gains tax is an issue for you.....
    Happy silver hunting!
