    Maybe save you a phone call today: 
    I can only go by my past dealings with the Mint with popular releases such as the Snowman & the 50p Anniversary sets, but if the order is ‘closed’ and it says ‘invoiced’ and your cash is still pending in your account, at some point in the very near future they’ll Despatch your coins and they’ll take the payment. 
    I ordered my Silver Proof 50p Anniversary Set on the 16th January. It  remained an open order labelled pending for around 5 days, before they then released the hold on the cash in my bank- the order still said open & pending.
    Then not until 29th of February I received the email below and it moved to the closed order and invoiced. 
    If you read the t&c’s it says that if the RM cannot fulfill an order within 10 days it will take the hold off of your cash within 5 days, and you will be billed when the item is actually shipped.
    My 50p Anniversary set shipped only yesterday teatime- ahead of schedule, they said in the email ‘late March’. 
    It makes sense really- my fantasy is this- they likely won’t have anywhere near the 25k Gruffalo’s ready to ship, they’ll likely make a guesstimate of initial orders and work to that and if it never sells out, then they haven’t blown cash- on the ancillary bits & pieces such as the lumps of Perspex, capsules, glossy printed boxes and COA’s- that’s where the expense lies, not the 8g of .925 Silver- that can always go back in the pot.

    Spot gold has gone up almost $20 today. It is a shame limited to three per household instead of three per person. Limited to three per person then my wife get three, my two year son will have another three and then all my son's friends (teddy, lion, giraffe and all his cuddly toys (I will name them all first) will each have three as well).

    My viewpoint is different on this! As a newish parent (8 & 5 yo) , this coin appeals the most to my kids compared to the other character releases. Its a new topic for a younger generation. My parents know nada about Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler books, but parents like myself (for the last 10-15 years) know nearly all of them. We've read the books enough, had them recited to us by our kids, walked the trails at the local forests and watched the animations at Christmas. I don't intend to flip my coins, but i do think they are collectable and have long term appeal especially to the next gen of collectors etc. I would say if anything, the Gruffalo is a "sleeper" in the making. It would not surprise me if they continued with The Stick Man and Room with A Broom. It just doesn't have the international appeal that the snowman, Beatrix Potter or Paddington has.
    I guess the big hoorah will be the Harry Potter releases one day - they will probably "mint" that to Avada Kedavra

    Glad I didn't stop up til midnight. I kept waking up in the night and thinking to myself "Gruffalo"! But then convinced myself to go back to sleep instead of Coin hunting. 
    Went on this morning. 5 people in the Q in front of me and checked out fine (Although it wouldn't take my debit card for some reason)

    Just had a look back on the RM website and was in a much bigger queue this time. It says:
    You can access The Royal Mint website at more than an hour which is in more than an hour
    excellent clarification there RM...

    That’s true I can see people manipulating the market for their own gains, I myself got in to bullion from collecting £2,£1 & 50p coins I have a solid stash & possibly a few unicorns in their too.... For me it’s all about the thrill when you discover a new variety in your hand after you get some change, Can’t see myself selling my stash, well not any time soon been collecting for over a decade & can’t once recall selling or exchanging even one even when those error  20p coins where going upward of a £1000

    Today i received my first graded coins from @Numistacker  although they all got 70’s, but the reason i wanted them in a slab is because it is easier to look at closely and enjoy. Plus the slabs makes them feel more precious!  I even had them in scratch proof slabs but i got some scratches on the plastic 😅 i think ngc’s scratch resistant plastic is just the same as the normal one.
