    Because it was not in The UK, or Europe, or N or S. America.

    Melon got a reaction from goldmember44 in 2020 Una and the Lion   
    I'd take the money and run if it was me. No idea about the value of grading. 
    It may go up over time, but it also may go down. In my mind, I'm not in this game to speculate with large sums of money on collectables. So for me it would be sell and invest in weight. 
    But it's not my Una, so the real question is what are you in the game for?

    In that scenario, I would probably regret not using the money I had spent on gold for strippers and beer.

    I went to the York Coin Fair yesterday and the Royal Mint had a stall. I managed to blag a nice softcover book out of them of the Una & The Lion.  Nice photos and informative.

    Melon reacted to Serendipity in Gold Coins In London   
    I buy most of my precious metals online but sell in person to Hatton Garden Metals. Yes, you’re right about these places not being very welcoming places to visit with walled off booths and barriers. Even Sharps Pixley has openly admitted in an interview they scan every customer who enters their store and the red flags go up if they’re spotted wearing trainers. Sounds rather extreme. Another problem is the fact that they’re open weekdays when most people are working. Some dealers have gone completely online with no brick-and-mortar presence at all.

    Places like ATS or HGM are not good places to stop by really. These places don't have showrooms or display cabinets. They have walled off booths and barriers between you and the folk that work there. Check their websites and if you like something then by all means drop in to buy, but don't expect a pleasant browsing experience! 
    I've not gone in to Sharps Pixley yet, but I drove past it and it looked far more inviting at least from the outside. Not been to Baird either.

    Not to be harsh, but regardless of what happens with this specific incident you do need to be more organised when receiving things.
    Almost a year has passed and you're only noticing now not only that an order marked as shipped didn't show up, but also that you can't remember (what does that even mean!) seeing other coins from other orders? Can't exactly blame GSBE for being a little dubious, that's pretty negligent. 
    Hope this gets sorted for you, but if not take it as an expensive lesson. Check EVERYTHING on arrival. Record opening the package on your phone so you have proof of anything missing. Get in contact immediately if there's any issues. These are good habits to have.
