  1. Out of interest, what markups do H&B get with those those overpriced coins? Their profit margins can't be that big, can they, unless they have some sort of 'proof coin wholesalers' where they get these coins cheap. I can't figure out their business model!
  2. Looks like a good offer. The next question is, are The Buckingham Collection as spammy as H&B?
  3. What sort of hardship is that? Yes they have to get a visa like everywhere else, I believe it will cost 7euros or about £5.50. This is even less than first world problem.
  4. I've been noticing cameras outside of homes too. It might respect passers by more to have them pointed no further than their drives or rear gardens. As for police, it's a toss up between how safe they actually keep us with all this surveillance Vs what we lose from it. Given that London is one of the most heavily CCTV'd cities in the world and yet have nothing like the lowest crime rates, the cameras clearly don't help all that much. It might be best to rethink their prevention strategies and come up with something else.
  5. Is the fair more for coin collectors, or are their bullion deals to be had? I'm rubbish at haggling but if their are competitive prices on coins like Sovereigns then I might have a look.
  6. Farage got milkshaked today. It's such childish reflection on British politics that it's almost tradition here to do that sort of thing. Milkshake, eggs and what have you. Where is the intellect? If the people who do or like it think it makes the politician look bad or embarrasses them in any way, then those people they have very poor self awareness.

    keep haggling

    Great advice. Did they have any left?
  8. It was 52%/48% with London weighing the Remain vote heavily. Not to say Londoner's votes count less, but it did distort the national view a lot. By region, the split is 270/129 or 68%/32% for Leave. http://www.abcdiamond.com/brexit-results-by-region/
  9. It's almost down to the 2018 lows. Another buying opportunity perhaps? I missed it last time because I was sitting on my thumb being unsure about it's future. I'll have to sit on my thumb some more now and keep wondering what it's future will hold! It doesn't help that the GBP is being nobbled these days too.
  10. I called them to enquire about the offer. The woman swiftly tried upselling to convince me to forget the offer altogether and go for their proof coins instead at double the price. She was really in hard sell mode too about how much better investments they are. If that's a taste of things to come if I buy from them, then I think I'll pass. I don't need a discount that badly. It came off very sleazy.
  11. Trolling is a form of freedom of speech but it is a very unproductive use of it, to the point of disrespecting freedom of speech. I just wish people were more responsible with it. And no, I'm not talking about all the PC nonsense these days. I mean real, sinister, toxic trolling and bullying. We had one such person on here a couple of weeks ago and thankfully they were banned. Yes they arguably should have a legal right to troll, but forum moderators should also retain the right to ban them if their presence and use of their freedom of speech is toxic.
  12. Yep, any plans on QB's being a future premium to cash in later is merely taking a punt. If you stack for financial stability then near spot spot PMs are still the ones.

    I think I'll take a punt with them. Has anyone tried the Postal Order payment option?

    I'm tempted to buy but honestly the mass junk mail is really putting me off. Couldn't you just cite GDPR and tell them you've withdrawn consent for any further communications?
  15. Couldn't those in the London vicinity just buy from them in person? They can't send you letters if they don't know your address. I used to buy from another bullion dealer a couple of years ago in person and did just that. When I filled out their receipt certificate, I wrote a disused business address on it. H&B's front door seems very plush too, might be worth a visit.
