    Its all been resolved and they are being sent. I will say that previous buys for sovereigns have been acted on very quickly by Chards it was just the attitude that I found hard to accept. Wilky

    chard

    Hmm, I think I will keep my thoughts to my self in the future, no where did Chards say it would take months to fulfil the order but hay-ho we live and learn, the main thing that shocked me was the fact that they refused to refund and offered to buy back at a lower price which would have been a small loss of £18.55 to me. Chards "Alternatively, if you rather not wait, we can offer a few different options. As the price of the coins is based on the live gold price unfortunately we can not offer a refund. We can however purchase the coins back at the intrinsic rate, which is currently £225 per coin. Another option would be to upgrade to the newly minted sovereigns, which would be an additional £4.25 per coin. " Now this comment does not make sense to me as they don't have the gold so how is my money linked to the live gold price? my funds are just sitting in the bank awaiting the time that they CAN buy the sovereigns so to me that comment is pure rubbish. So I will just have to keep waiting...lol Wilky

    chard

    Ok, Why would I sell back at a loss, only a small one of £18.55 but still a loss " Alternatively, if you rather not wait, we can offer a few different options. As the price of the coins is based on the live gold price unfortunately we can not offer a refund. We can however purchase the coins back at the intrinsic rate, which is currently £225 per coin. Another option would be to upgrade to the newly minted sovereigns, which would be an additional £4.25 per coin. " So yes I am being truthful. Wilky

    chard

    Surprise, I had an update email today..... Unfortunately no sovereigns yet, they are still sourcing them but my order will be honoured no matter the increase in gold price..... I just want the gold I paid for... Lol I just wish I had bought more zills ( cripto token) with it instead. oh and it's not a trial by forum it's a genuine pissed off custom with a valid axe to grind. wilky

    chard

    Well I am very disappointed with Chard I ordered 5 bullion grade sovereigns Back on 28th March and they have not full filled the order and refuse to credit back the payment. Since then gold has increased in value and I am beginning to wonder if they will send them. pissed off is not the word for it and very shabby service so be warned check they have them in stock other wise they just keep your money and get shitty when you ask for it back.

    Fake 1887 £5 ?

    I will await the outcome as I have just posted it back before I do that, BUT apparently they had an expert come in and grade the coins, this one was supposed to be EF they are going to get him to reevaluate the coin, I did say that I would have it professionally evaluated if they insist its not fake. Martin.

    Fake 1887 £5 ?

    I bought this at auction and it came today, the first thing I did was to weigh it and its light 38.60 g instead of 39.94g I then weighed 5 new sovereigns and they came in spot on 39.9g. Now I am concerned is it a fake I would really appriciate some help before I go back to the auction house so here are a few pictures of it. Many thanks Martin.
