    I bought one of these and it's good for the money. Slightly bigger than my capsules but still excellent quality. 
    Just need to fill it now... does anyone have a full sovereign for sale? Looking for early 1900s 👍

    boon reacted to ChrisSIlver in Quoting large parts of posts   
    This is especially useful for new members  
    Quoting large parts of another members posts is sometimes unnecessary and makes for unnecessary scrolling of respect information for members.
    We advise you to only quote the relevant text, e.g. if you are answering a members question, you could just quote the question itself rather than the whole post from the member. To quote a specific part of the text, just highlight it and then a “quote” button will appear, allow you to easily quote specific parts of a text. You can also of course press the main quote button and then manually delete the unnecessary text however using the above method would be easier.
    I will try to attach a screenshot later to show this method. Note that it may not work whilst browsing on a mobile such as an iPhone as the native iPhone “copy, paste” etc buttons may appear over the top of the quote button. 
    The other thing you can do to get the attention of a member is to use the mention button which looks like an @, or to type the @, and then start typing the members username where it will then come up with different members names and you can click the member that you wish to mention. Please note that mentioning a member also sends an email to the member, so we advise you to use this feature sparingly and only when needed in order to avoid bombarding the members mail box with emails.
    In regards to getting my attention, please use the @ mention feature if needed as this will quickly make me aware of any topics where I am needed.
    If the member you are trying to contact is the topic author you may find that you can simply reply to the topic as the member will most likely have online notifications switched on for their topics and will no doubt want to read all the replies to their topic.
    So in conclusion, we appreciate if you use the quote feature wisely and do not quote whole massive posts by other members unless it is necessary, we strongly encourage the use of quoting but it is best used when only specific relevant parts of texts are quoted. This makes it a better viewing and reading pleasures for all.
    Many thanks

    I have one of these for putting my sovereigns in, it holds sovs in 22.5 lighthouse capsules nicely. don't think i'll ever fill it!

    be careful if looking at other suppliers- there are more than one type on the market which look the same, and the ones without "coinsafe" written on the top tend to narrow with depth and they dont fit properly.

    UPDATE TIME
    The bars are due back from hallmarking in the next few days. Then comes the cleaning and photographing of all 200 bars!
    I will be sending out messages this week asking for addresses and we aim to have everything in the post by Monday 6th May.

    boon reacted to BackyardBullion in Hand Poured 999 Silver "Name Frames"   
    I am very proud to announce the latest collaborative with my Dad (Backyard Bullion Senior!)
    We are calling these, "Name Frames"
    They are in a similar theme with the square puzzle boards we have already created and Mrs BYB needs full credit here for the idea to make these "Name Frames"
    We think they make very special Christening gifts (silver being the traditional thing to give) and we like the idea that they can be used to help young children learn to spell their names when the time comes. We have mocked up a few prototype boards using our Doggies names, Pickle and Bowie - these sets are not for sale, sorry!

    Square sizes
    We can offer the "Name Frames" in two different sizes of squares. 
    Small squares are approximately 1.4 oz per square 
    Large squares are approximately 2.5 oz per square
    We can also offer squares in a 5 oz form for those of you with very large budgets. This would certainly be a sight to behold but would also be very pricey - but, if you are interested in a mammoth set of 5 oz + per square then please let us know!
    Each square is hand poured and stamped by me. They will all be individually hallmarked by the Edinburgh Assay Office. 
    The frames are made by my Dad using some lovely English Oak. We can source other types of wood to order if needed or even use any wood that you may have. 
    Prices
    The wooden frames are £30 each for 1 line and £40 each for 2 line frames. Larger or more complex frames (across 3 lines or incorporating chequered squares) are priced to order. 
    The silver is priced at £25/oz and a final calculation will be made when all the pieces are poured, but here is a rough guide:
    4 piece (Small) set (approx 5.6 oz) + Frame: £170
    4 piece (Large) set (approx 10 oz) + Frame: £280
    5 piece (Small) set (approx 7 oz) + Frame: £205
    5 piece (Large) set (approx 10 oz) + Frame: £342.50
    6 piece (Small) set (approx 8.4 oz) + Frame: £240
    6 piece (Large) set (approx 12.5 oz) + Frame: £405
    10 piece (Small) set (approx 14 oz) + Double line frame: £390
    10 piece (Large) set (approx 25 oz) + Double line frame: £665
    We can do multiple lines or one long line if needed. We can also fill blank spaces with blank squares if needed. 
    Essentially any configuration is possible so please just ask if you have something specific in mind. 
    VAT & Sales Tax
    Prices are inclusive of VAT and sales taxes
    Postage
    Postage is included in the prices for all sets including international delivery. 
    Lead Times
    These sets are made to order. We estimate that about 4-5 weeks is the average time it would take to make, hallmark and finish a set. 
    We can offer an expedited service if needed - but this will come at a surcharge so please ask if you are pushed for a deadline. Usually we can turn around a set in about 1 week with an expedited service. 
    Payment Information
    We can accept payment in the form of Banks Transfer, PayPal, Credit/Debit card and certain Crypto currencies. 
    Payment Plans
    We are also aware that larger sets are not cheap and would be more than happy to create a payment plan to split payments where needed in a similar way we have done with the "monthly tetris club" and "monthly puzzle club". Please get in touch to discuss if this is of interest.

    Ha ha I use old berocca/ cheap supermarket copy tubes for some coins 👍
    as for how many sovs fit it the coinsafe ones I’m not sure as I’ve never owned enough to fill one- however I think I bought a box of lighthouse caps last time I bought a sov about 18 months ago, so I’ll have a root when home and see if I have enough to fill a tube 👍

    If you don't mind what type of tube you want, these maybe ok, ID 23.8mm. They may fit I don't know. They are airtight if nothing else and FREE! Well, postage would be nice.

    Ever fancied owning a silver depiction of a pox ridden goat like creature with rotating boar tusks?
    Today is your lucky day, because The European Mint has just taken physical delivery of their stock and that means we can included them in this (what will no doubt be) a pretty intensive group order. 
    For the avoidance of doubt....
