    This may well be the nicest coin I own, had to get it to match my BU version.
    These will be so sort after imho with a mintage of only 750, had to grab this PF70. This is only available in the 5 coin "long set", which were 3300 RRP and have sold for 5300 on ebay already, only a few for sale atm at 6-8k.

    Offered ended...a member has requested it
    I guess this should be technically in Buy/Sell ... but it's free and will get more views here.
    I am selling the coins from this set, so I have no need for the Box. I am selling it on eBay for $20.
    But if any forum member has this set and needs a replacement Box in perfect shape I will send it free if you pay shipping.  
    Message me.

    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.

    Today I bought a 2018 Perth BU swan plus a 1/4 gold Britannia from Sharps Pixley. As I proceeded through the payment, Sharps have a timer. I had to speed read the terms and conditions and accept before the timer ran out. Had to make sure I wasn't going to wait a while for my coin whilst they sourced it but all was fine in the small print

    Not sure i go along with complete removal. Moderate and chop certain content perhaps but the thread is valid, and so are a lot of the comments.

    barney reacted to sixgun in chard   
    i find it interesting how these complaint topics drag on and excite heated emotions.
    We have had a number in the recent past. i remember GS.be, Atkinson's and now Chard. Those starting the threads have to some extent or other got a valid point to make. To alert other members to a problem is useful. Here Chard is forward selling coins. Selling coins they have not got, so if there is a big order comes in it can take time to fill pre-existing orders. The price is fixed but the delivery date is not. This needs to be borne in mind when placing orders.
    Those starting these threads however often have a real dig at the dealer. We then see some members agreeing with the OP. Then there are others who post a less sympathetic view, often supportive of the dealer, as i suspect they feel the original post(s) were unfair and too brutal. We quickly develop opposing sides and a scrap ensues. Not unusually this starts to get personal.
    In general it is unusual for the personal insults to go over the top. i can only remember one time in the recent past where members remarked on how OTT insults had become. i reported the thread as it did not present a good impression of the forum and this community. We should be able to have hearty discussions with strongly differing views - there should be no snowflake safe spaces, we are all grown ups here but vicious gutter language is beyond the pale.
    i have watched and enjoyed most of your videos - i cannot for the life of me think why hateful comments would be posted but there are some fiendish trolls on youtube. "and anti-Semitic comments" that is most mysterious.

    Seriously guys you just left me totally speechless. Massive thanks to@backyardbullion for pulling this together and plotting this truly amazing surprise.






    I was so taken back and surprised tears flowed. I don’t deserve this. All of you guys are great and make this forum and the YouTube community the friendly and exceptional place it is.

    I guess you couldn’t get crown collector to make a contribution)))) if you haven’t read his comments on YouTube they are always a hoot to say the least ))

    So massive massive thanks it was amazing to see the end result and to get a preview of BYB’s brilliant video showing how these beautiful bars were made.
