    I keep the receipts for each purchase, but beyond that I can't be bothered to do anymore book keeping.

    RacerCool reacted to BackyardBullion in We are sorry....Group Orders are no more blame VAT registration!!!   
    You make very valid points. 
    The unboxing videos alone are a clear way we benefit.
    These are the same points my accountant made today.
    I'm afraid that for the time being we will NOT be doing another group order.
    The decision comes down to the fact that it is an interpretation of the guidance and VAT laws. Our interpretation may be different to the inspector that audits me. 
    We don't want to end up in a tribunal and face countless legal bills and back VAT bills. 
    Even though the chance of this is low - it still puts us off.
    I will be addressing this decision in more detail in a video at a later date - but for the time being....
    We are sorry, no more group orders. 
    We are going to talk with the EU mint about how we can still support the silver forum buyers in perhaps the form of a shipping discount code.
    But from Mrs BYB and myself, we want to extend our apologies for no more group orders and out heartfelt thanks to everyone who has joined and supported the orders we have done in the past.

    Count me in as a pre-'33 US gold fan.  The $5 half eagle Indian head is a beautiful coin, and one of my favorites coins ever.

    Use it for Gold, then buy another safe in the future for your Silver.
    If you dont like that idea, swap the safe.

    RacerCool got a reaction from gustavus in Mexican 2 peso storage solution   
    Earlier I had started a thread asking about storage tubes for the tiny 2 peso gold coins. I kept searching, and finally found the Lighthouse 14mm direct fit capsules. I also discovered that a tube meant for U.S. 5¢ nickels holds the capsules perfectly. The capsules are just slightly larger inside than the coin itself, and you could stack three of the coins on top of each other inside one capsule. But at least the coin is safe inside some protective container, and it won't easily get lost. You guys probably already have great storage ideas for these coins, but I wanted to put this out there for anyone still searching.

    I always carry cash on me, and by default I buy things with cash.  Been doing that for years, and will continue to do that.

    RacerCool got a reaction from Frost in Buy 1 coin per time or in bulk?   
    Generally I'll try to stack, not collect individual coins, so that means I'll buy coins in rolls or lots. And that means that I'm paying much less per coin for shipping, which is greatly appreciated.

    What, you've never heard of the Millennium Falcon? It's the ship that did the Atlantic Run in less than 12 nautical miles*.  I've made a few..."special" modifications myself.  I've outrun British warships.  Not the local bulk cruisers, mind you; I mean the big ships-of-the-line.  She's fast enough for you, old man.

    RacerCool reacted to DaveWheat89 in Just a little thank you   
    Big thank you to @Pampfan for sorting me out with this U.S Mint pouch for my silver quarters, couldn't find any in the UK at all and nobody on ebay would ship outside of the global shipping programme which charges £20. This guy asks for my address to calculate postage cost and he will get back to me, (I fell for it) 5 days later, he hadn't got back to me, I'm still searching the web for a pouch, I hear the post, there's an envelope covered in stamps of the U.S flag, this guy not only sent me the pouch, he didn't charge me a penny, even for postage, what a guy! Thanks again bud!
