    I haven't seen a 360 video before. Very impressive. Would have preferred vaults with stacks of bars though!

    The more I see this design, the more I like it.  My first impression was negative (although not to the point I wouldn't buy it), and I didn't think the pose of the falcon was flattering.  However, it does make sense to me that a protective stance is a reasonable design choice, and it's just difficult to make a falcon look as good as a Dragon, Griffin, or Lion.  These proof coins also look very different depending on how light reflects.  In my opinion, the picture on the Royal Mint website shows off the coin and design better than the initial post, which was probably from MCM.

    I really don't want to get into a debate on this but it breaks down into a few different things.
    Technology is not the same as science. It's not that we've miraculously forgotten something. To make a Saturn V rocket now would be like making a vintage car from scratch.
    The reason we've not gone back to the moon is that, basically, manned space-flight is extremely expensive and it's often much easier, cheaper and more practical to send unmanned probes. We didn't bother maintaining the Saturn V program (and indeed cut it back from the original planned number of launches) because it was big and expensive.
     For example, the Space Shuttle program required NASA to spend a couple of billion dollars a year to keep the shuttle program going (by essentially guaranteeing that all the companies up the supply chain would remain able to provide components/services) even if the shuttle wasn't actually flying.
     By contrast putting things into low-earth or bit or geostationary orbit is extremely useful and there's a global competitive market of launch providers for this. So launch technology for putting things into these orbits has come on leaps and bounds.

    Well....I am a slave to the series so going to have to pick them up...
    I will say this, it is stylistically different, but I quite like it. Mrs BYB likes it which is always a good sign, she has picked some gems before!
    Her reaction to the lunar "dead or dying" pig (as it shall henceforth be known) was, "What? What on earth were they thinking! Wait, is this a joke?" She also followed up by saying, "it is almost as bad as that bloody dog!"
    These (and many other) comments are some of the reasons I love Mrs BYB so much 😀😀😀😀

    Some people just love to believe that the world is one big conspiracy and everyone is trying to lie to them and hide the truth from them. One way to spice up a boring life I suppose!
    One lass at work swears blind that the moon landings didn't happen, and mocks anyone who thinks they did, like they're the idiots. Mental!

    Regarding the quarter ounce size, I have a set of bimetallic gold/platinum Angel and Noble from 1995.

    Edited to add correction: Had. Gave them as birth coins to my twin girl and boy grandkids born in 2016.

    Bullionaire reacted to Seasider in BNT - Do not use - Bunch of cowboys - Please read   
    Hello My name is Seasider and I have bought a coin from BNT.  With hindsight I can only say that I had just been spurned by the Royal Mint and so my defences were low.  I was on the rebound.
    Without wishing to tempt fate I can confirm that I did get the coin I ordered and was happy with it.  I am of course as blind as a bat.  Only this week someone pointed out a flaw on a sovereign to me and I still couldn't see it with a loupe and him pointing to the spot.  Then when I saw it I could not understand how I ever missed it.  No it was not the one I bought from BNT.
    Yes there was some delay - quite a contrast to Chards and Bullionbypost who delivered coins I bought from them very speedily and with lots of emails detailing their journey.  But I believe them when they say the coins have to go to Germany to be checked (a good thing if it means they don't send out poor quality coins) and it ties in with some comments on here about the staffing of the UK operation.
    Yes there was some funny business with taking the payment - it appeared and disappeared and then reappeared in a slightly alarming manner but they did not take more than they said they would.  @Kimchi they really do need to give you something for distress and inconvenience even if the bank refunds all the charges.
    And finally yes the barrage of emails afterwards is something I can live without
    But my experience with them was not bad.  It certainly did not merit a pile of manure.
