  1. I've purchased additional 1/4oz queens beast in case the premiums start to rise with the spot price. Then If I need to I can just buy the cheapest 1oz gold bullion in september and trade an older queens beast for the new one. Thats the theory anyway.
  2. *SOLD* Here I have a 1/4ox Maple purchased from atkinsons last year when I started to acquire gold coins for my stack. Offered at spot (£281.46) + postage of your choosing although I would always recommend special delivery. Sorry for the second photo gold cons are a pain to photograph from a phone I can try taking more on request. Sold at spot as bullion but its better than that. Payment by bank transfer only please

    Gold bug coin

    Didnt know exactly where to put this because its gold and silver but considering the price its more into the gold price range hence gold https://hotco.co/collections/roman-booteen/products/gold-bug?_ke=eyJrbF9lbWFpbCI6ICJ3YXluZS5qb3JkYW5AbGl2ZS5jby51ayIsICJrbF9jb21wYW55X2lkIjogIlBHbmVwYSJ9 I am considering one of these, are they gradable? 999 made
  4. Haha sods law, I took this off line a couple of weeks ago simply because the only person using it was me. It was just a web UI to keep track of prices (Premiums) and your stack with price paid and profit/loss per coin. It would seem the consensus is to use a spread sheet though. I took it down because I am not buying PMS at the min (Looking at building more whiskey bottles up ATM) so its not required to be running, honestly as I was the only one using it I dont know when or it I will put it live to the open internet again.
  5. Haha scumbags natwest, my mortgage is with them and I do the over payment monthly. Because you have paid in a lump sum this way they will "recalculate" the mortgage and reduce the monthly payment. If you overpay monthly (Increase what you pay) they will always keep the min payment the same. I overpay every month and actually wanted them to "recalculate" and I would then up my standing order by the reduction amount. They wouldn't do it unless I stop over paying and manually make the over payment every month. Scumbags, every trick possible to make overpaying as awkward as possible.
  6. If I want to gift silver I buy these, my stack does not contain any.
  7. Glad it ended OK for you, personally I think Atkinsons should have done more here, if you lost the price increase in spot they should have covered that too. After all that's why you purchase it, the premium you pay is after spot.
  8. I intended to grade this but looking through a 30x loupe (I think its 30x) there are little shiny specs where there isn't enough matt. They are tiny and the coin looks awesome but I want to only have pf/ms70 graded coins and I am unsure if it will get the high grade. I know what these have been selling for and I will let it go to someone on the forum for £725 inc RMSD Payment by bank transfer
  9. This is really bad for atkinsons, as a trusted dealer I have always relied on them not providing fake/restrike coins. I will certainly be checking everything in more details from now on!
  10. Yes, thanks for posting them I could not get a good shot of them no matter how hard I tried on my phone. You can see the lettering does not completely have the "matt" finish and I can see a couple of specs on the horse, sword and the dragon. I dont know if this is common across all the coins though.
  11. I've just rang them and of course they dont have replacements available. Basically said I can ring head office on Monday and they will refund it. I am going to just send for grading and at least learn something from it, as its my first coin I've purchased for grading I will know for next time if I send it off. If I dont send it I wont know for next time so I think I am going to just have to throw myself in the deep end and learn to swim
  12. That is certainly a possibility and your bang on about how I feel about it. I am going to send to numi for grading anyway and I will keep this post updated when I get it back. At least it will help others know if its paranoia or justified concerns.
  13. Its not an error because its matted just some edges are not and there are white specs. I think I am going to just send to @Numistacker and see what happens. The worst that can happen is I learn something because me personally would not give this coin a 69 or a 70 but I've never graded a coin before so I an a noob. (For some context I am a video game collector and ex CCG collector so maybe I am being to picky)
  14. Thanks @Kman thats very helpful because mine looks like that and the areas where I see shine instead of matt seems to have the same parts reflected on yours too so I expect its because its under a loupe. Its annoying because no matter how hard I try I cannot get a good picture to show the specs or the full matt.
  15. Does it look the same on the back? Some of the letters on mine dont have any matt at all I will post a pic if I can get a good one
  16. As it stands mine is not going to get a 70 so I think I will be moving it on shame because I want to start building up a graded collection but I am not going to grade unless there is a chance of a 70 grade.
  17. You need a loupe to see it but looking at the queen side there are some letters that hardly have any "matt" at all.
  18. its 10x IIRK I've posted an image above but I dont think I am able to get a good one to show the extent because I am a photo noob!
  19. Sure its hard to do but this one shows the best. Its way more obvious under the loupe. You can see the specs on the horses legs in this image but they are dotted all over the horse and dragon mainly in the raised areas
  20. Mine arrived today but I dont know how I feel about it. I was looking to get my first coin graded with @Numistacker but looking through a loupe there are lots of white specs where frosting should be (I think) Especially the high points of the dragon that are way to shinny for a matt finish. Is this normal I dont think this would get a 70 although I've never had a coin graded before so I may be picky. Do I return the coin, sell it on or try my grading look. Is this normal, have any others out there looked at their coin under magnification and notices similar marks?
  21. I managed to pick myself one up this morning. @Numistacker I think my first coin to send for grading is on its way to me
  22. So glad they have gone, I saw and wanted but I've used my investment money already for the month.
