    Why no love for Landmarks of Britain?

    All about design, they are awful. I don't even offer pre-orders on these coins..

    chard

    *sigh* I am sodding off back to facebook For what its worth I do sell sovs, they are cheaper and you won't get any lacklustre reason why I fail because I accept accountability.

    Actually, I'd consider paying the extra to sell on here if here was a safe space

    Fake Shield Sovereigns? - 1884-M

    Its off. I read somewhere that they used to fake with platinum before the metal was useful. Id get it scanned.

    chard

    I wasn't going to add to this because I am ambivalent about this forum at best but I think I will. I personally think its not good enough in chards case, I am only small I fight for scraps at the bottom to make money doing what I love but regardless of terms and conditions they've dropped the ball on this case. If I couldn't source in 6 weeks Id quit because Id be embarrassed, Chards is possibly the benchmark for the UK market. It is indeed the company people like myself aspire to be like and I have blacklist of contacts that is a fraction of a fraction of a percent of theirs. Its not good enough, that customer is lost for life now and quite rightly so. Doesn't matter about terms and conditions if you can't do something in adequate timeframes then you shouldn't be offering the service. Just my humble opinion, I wait for people to jump down my throat. PS i actually think Chards does a very good job, they are one of the benchmarks but they need to sort out those T and Cs or other people will happily take their market share.

    For what its worth my sovs are also sourced to order and cheaper and you would get up to date feedback on the order. Just saying..

    London Mint Office

    Its a weird coin. Im undecided if at 375 its an expensive flop or a great investment. I actually picked it up in a pawn shop hence why I can sell it so cheap.

    Hatton Garden price increases

    Im not so sure. They have the simplest of systems in place for selling, its so streamlined it shouldn't be a pain whatsoever. I think the problem is they get caught short on spot too often and it squeezes the cashflow. They have a relatively big team, minimum of 6 people that they have overheads for and they probably pay rent to boot on prime property. If the issue was a pain to sell coins they wouldnt have teamed up with Bairds (my opinion but the logical conclusion) in a buy and supply deal. I think the problem is liquidity and they are fighting for the margins in the lean times. Just my opinion, I could be way off the mark...but the issue is they are making themselves too pricey (their problem is my gain)

    Hatton Garden price increases

    I was having a chat with another dealer about this, my gut says they are struggling.

    Watch this space, I am negotiations to be able to consistently supply sovs a spot plus 3 in bullion condition. I can also probably do a small discount for quantity.
