    Atkins1888 got a reaction from Bullionaire in Before/ during BRITANNIA RULES THE WAVES   
    Hi I was constantly searching for one of these I  lost out on e-bay or where of really bad quality.  quite a few wks ago I had ordered 4coins from ATKINSONS (no relation) I had basically purchased them to well just as weight as these ones where from the seconds bin (sort of thing ) can’t remem what they call it 
    so as it turns out guess what was in it ? =  ONE KANGAROO TWO BRITS AND ONE BRITANNIA RULES THE WAVES (FALKLAND ISLANDS 2017) so my extremely long winded question is what are they worth i this condition ( will try my best to upload a pict I’ve only done it once on hear don’t know how but I did
     the frosting background is I bit dull compared to other pop joy coins that I have 
    on the obverse side there are a few marks on the lettering specially on the word islands and o the very outer rim wich I think with a bit more T.L.C would be ok  
    on the reverse side again the frosting looks a bit dark a small mark on the letter E on THE And W on WAVES and again on the very outer rim one or two little marks  To be honest nothing that catches the eyes I does look a bit dirty on the obverse but over all I would say it’s in pretty good condition 
    so does anyone have more INFO. On this coin what would you do sell it for whatever it’s worth. ? or perhaps keep it to see if it goes up in value over time I don’t know anything about error coins apart from a little on this one do they increase or decrease in value over time ? Is it best to sell when it’s hot or what LOL ??

    Aw there’s absolutely no need to talk up the items you have for sale They have to be some of thee most beautiful pieces of crafted metals  I have come across. some people say a piece of silver is just the same as any other piece of silver But in this instance I would most definitely have to respectfully disagree with that comment as you will know because you also have the pleasure of owning some for now 
     
    eh kamakazzi Will that be ok  Did we discuss my 25% commission ah well never mind we can sort out contracts later just forward using PPFF or CASH will do at a push if I really need to HAHA 😂 L.O.L

    Thanks kamikaze all ready have it and the next one and funnily enough that’s  something that I’ve been considering doing for a wee while now I just can’t make up my mind about gold

    Thanks @Atkins1888 for the heads up. 
    To be honest with you I am just switching out from silver and going only for gold so that's why I'm selling them. 
    Purely from an ease of stashing view, I can hide £20k of gold pretty easily around the house and don't need to use my safe at my business to store my stash anymore!
     
    Also for a mere £17.50 you can have the first in series delivered for your own run. Bargain 😜

    Hi kamikaze I’m kind of new on hear so I don’t if you would know this or not
    But I’m sure the 2016 Canadian puma is the first coin in the Canadian wildlife series so without being a nosey Gitt I obviously don’t wwhy you’re selling but it might be worth keeeping a hold. Of that one for a wee while longer and see Howe the rest of series does you just never know ?

    Its not silver, as I said it would almost certainly be pewter or some other kind of cast metal. 
    There is one listed for sale on this specialist match holder site (new one for me!) http://www.sportingcollectibles.com/matchstrikers.html

    Atkins1888 reacted to Gorseinonboy in Do I have a strategy yet?   
    I’ve been around the Forum for a few weeks now, following various postings, watching videos, buying the odd coin or bar, signing up to all sorts of Bullion sites, scrutinising the rise and fall of spot prices on an hourly basis, learning basic German, keeping an eye on EBay and going quietly fretful and frighteningly obsessive as the days go on. My wife has even begun to use phrases like:
    I don’t know you any more......
    Why do we never eat together? Like we used to.......
    If you mention the words BU, proof or low mintage once more....I won’t be responsible for my actions.....
    I realise this could take over the whole of my life, alter my ability to reason, affect relationships, destroy my bank balance. I need a sound, reasonable strategy to the business of collecting or stacking,  which will be acceptable to a wife who is growing more suspicious and dubious.
    Tell me, those of you who have successfully negotiated this dilemma.....What is your strategy?

    Well I’ve I have just suffered the worst experience ever of buying from a dealer. Someone recommended GOLDSILVER.BE I believe they are based in Belgium .
    I ordered a 1oz gold coin and a 1oz silver coin. 
    The total came to £1018 they emailed me an invoice straight away for 1155€ when I went to pay the price wasn’t £1018 it was £1037 and we are talking a few mins . I double checked the price on their site it was still £1018 so I emailed to query the price . 
    Wow I have never had so much abuse 😲 a girl named Eva told me not to order from them again amongst other things.
    I sent one back saying they had been recommended and explained their £ rate seemed wrong . I told them thier customer service was dreadful speaking to me like that and I wouldn’t use them again. 
    I also sent pictures to back up what I was trying to say re the £ price .
    I got another back saying “we don’t care” I have the emails and screen shots I will try to upload they may be in the wrong order but you can see what happened .
    I am in shock and very upset , I never had any company treat me like this 🙁
