    *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.

    Fake Shield Sovereigns? - 1884-M

    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.

    completed Quarter gold sovereigns

  13. Hello, I was going simply buy sovs from my supplier and sell for spot plus 3% plus post but I think I have a better solution for all involved. For those of you who don't know me, I am a fledgling dealer who predominantly sells on facebook, I have done the last 4 QB orders of which I ordered a monster box+ for 3 of them so I do have some clout. Whilst I am pretty much full time I do not have the financial firepower to run both a silver book and a gold book which is where I want to innovate. I have a fantastic book of contacts and I can also get sovs super cheap. I had a chat with one of my suppliers yesterday and I want to start a monthly pre-order for sovereigns. Heres what I propose: I need to order 50 sovs per order to pass on the price of spot plus 2.5% plus post of your choice, my guy needs to source them but there is pretty much no limit to what he can find. He is adamant that he could find 500 sovs in a week at the price I have pre-agreed. I want to do a trial run to see if this works and will cap the amount of sovs at 50 for the first run (if its achieved). He is out of office until the start of the month and has asked to see if the want for this is there. I plan on running a count down towards the end of the month and then calling spot plus 2.5% on the time I put forward. I would need funds on that cut off day so I could pay for the stock, usually stock from him arrives within a day or 2 of paying and then I like to put out within 24 hours of receiving coins. He uses a service that is fully tracked and is covered up to 30000 euros. The next point I will address, all sovereigns will be mixed, their will be no preferences it will be for weight. Saying that I have bought 2 big tranches off him and the quality is mixed, Ive had some really nice coins off him but it will be a case of numbering the buyers and first coin that comes from the pile goes to the buyer i.e. potluck. It can be any head, including a young vic (I think I got 3 from my last tranche). If this interests anyone, could you tell on the thread how many potentially you will be interested in, if there is enough interest I will talk to my source and implement a timeframe for everyone. I would like to add that I will be posting this on the facebook group I use also and it will be capped at 50 for the first run. All the best Shaun Oliver

    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.

    Hatton Garden price increases

    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.

    GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    I am going to have a long hard think about what you have said for sovs. I can fill that void of spot plus 3 with consistent quantity as well, whilst I feel like its a kick in the teeth I am more than happy to fill the void they have now left, I can certainly do savings on bulk.
