  1. Agreed, they are my go to most the time. I have never been asked for ID, very friendly and they found me a 1959 recently to complete my first date run.
  2. Sounds correct to me. I still have a 6 and the newest update for me is 12.4.3. 13 has not been available at any time to me.
  3. Very nice, shame about the edge bump though.. I can stretch to spot +3% if you want to offload it. 😬
  4. Excellent, thank you guys.
  5. Good afternoon all, I have been considering diversifying my gold stack which is currently mainly bullion in the form of sovereigns and a few one ounce coins. I do have some Vicky shields, a 2017 proof and a 2017 SOTD. I have now come to the point where I would like to buy something really nice that will hold it's value over the next ten to twenty years and will be a highlight in my collection. I am thinking a graded, mint state, 1817 sovereign. Long term I would like to add a 1989 and a 1937 too. Can anyone, or hopefully many, offer any advice of where I can find details of the sort of prices I would be looking at? I have been looking at eBay, various dealer's websites and thus far. I have to say this is somewhat out of my comfort zone currently so any other advice would be very welcome indeed. Thanks in advance.
  6. The year is 2192. The British Prime Minister visits Brussels to ask for an extension of the Brexit deadline. No one remembers where this tradition originated, but every year it attracts many tourists from all over the world.
  7. Good morning my esteemed friends, felt like getting some silver out of the safe today and found this on one of them, any ideas on the cause? It’s a 2018 Britannia from a tube of 25 mixed 17/18s. Seems to be about four or five have it although this the worst. Not too bothered but interested to learn something new. Ta. Have a great weekend everyone. Second photo has been darkened and highlighted.

    The Polish mint shop at Wawel castle was very expensive when I last visited in 2018. There was a very good old coin shop though, about 5 - 10 minutes from the main square. It is called Bil-ka Monety, lots of silver and some gold. Very friendly but make sure you have your haggling boots on!
  9. I've been once before and enjoyed it very much. Since then I have been looking for the right time to attend again and this would seem like the perfect time. In my diary and looking forward to it.
  10. We paid our mortgage off earlier this year over 4 months with savings and a windfall. Paying cash raised questions, not that it was a problem as we had the appropriate paperwork if needed. However paying cash into my account (different bank) and then transferring it was not questioned at all. I would have thought that looked more dodgy? Anyway, we just said we had been selling a lot of Lego and other items as we were going minimalist. The lady looked a little perplexed but didn’t ask anything else.

    Administration and how it impacts you. Please note that Jason Baker and Geoffrey Rowley of FRP Advisory LLP, were appointed Joint Administrators of Glint Pay Ltd, Glint Pay UK Ltd and Glint Pay Services Ltd (the “Companies”) on 18th September 2019. The Companies are under the supervision of the Joint Administrators and all client monies and currencies (“Customer Funds”) continue to be held in segregated and safeguarded accounts. Withdrawal requests were suspended last week (including payments on your debit card, ATM withdrawals or FX transactions) whilst the Administrators review Customer Funds balances and reconciliations. This review was finalised this afternoon (30thSeptember 2019) and we are pleased to update that the Administrators have not identified any reason to believe there are any deficiencies or inaccuracies in the Customer Funds held. Regrettably however it is not possible at this time to reinstate payments or process withdrawal requests (including payments on your debit card, ATM withdrawals or FX transactions) as the bank operating the safeguarded accounts has frozen these accounts as of Friday 27 September 2019. The operating bank has taken these steps in accordance with their standard procedures relating to insolvency events, such as the administrations. The Glint app is still functioning, so you can continue to view your account balances, but no further receipts or payments will be processed whilst the safeguarded accounts are frozen. The Administrators are liaising with their legal advisors, the operating bank and the team at the Companies to try and identify a solution to this. A further update will follow as soon as any material progress is made in this regard. Any Gold that has been purchased remains the property of the client and is held in a secure, insured and independent vault in Switzerland. An independent statement from both the Gold Liquidity provider and the vault (Brinks) has been requested to ensure this matches to Glint’s records. Whilst the safeguarded accounts are frozen, the Companies are unable to settle any gold trades, so these have been suspended in the interim also. The Administrators are liaising with the relevant parties with a view to implementing a work around which will allow sales of gold held to recommence this week. A further update on this will be provided on Wednesday 2 October 2019. Please note that any monies resulting from the sale of Gold since the date of administration have been paid into the safeguarded accounts, which have been frozen. Our priorities: The priorities for the Joint Administrators and their staff are now to: complete a review of the safeguarding arrangements; and assist the directors in seeking investment to rescue the Companies on a solvent basis and exit Administration, or if not possible, then to achieve a transfer of the business and assets to another regulated entity. In the interim: Please see our FAQ sheet for additional information and continue to direct any specific account queries to the Glint customer services team at or call at 0203 915 8111 (Lines are open 9am to 6pm on Monday to Friday, and 9am to 1pm on Saturday). Should you have any queries related to the Administration, please contact or 020 3005 4000. The Joint Administrators and their staff appreciate that this a difficult and frustrating time for you. Please rest assured that everyone is working tirelessly to ensure that the security of Customer Funds remains of paramount importance. We thank you for your continued patience with this matter and a further update will be provided by close of business on Wednesday 2 October. Yours sincerely, For and on behalf of Glint Pay Services Limited, Glint Pay Limited and Glint Pay UK Limited Jason Daniel Baker - Joint Administrator Licensed in the United Kingdom by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales and bound by the Insolvency Code of Ethics. The Joint Administrators act as agents of the Companies and without personal liability. The affairs, business and property of the Companies are being managed by Jason Daniel Baker and Geoffrey Paul Rowley who were appointed Joint Administrators on 18 September 2019. The office holder(s) will be the data controller in respect of the personal data collected for the purpose of administering this matter.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for you. Keep us updated.
  13. Thank you so much for the heads up on this. I had a couple hundred pounds on my card. Tried to withdraw to my bank account which gave me an error message. Tried using it for payment via mastercard on Amazon which thankfully did go through leaving me with a total now of £1.84 still in my account. Phew. Thank you x £198! Lesson relearnt: if you don't hold it you don't own it.
