    First foray into Platinum.  Thanks @kneehow2018. 


    A grotty looking and fingerprinted 2015 Half Sovereign, Jody Clark Portrait from eBay. 


    And a Gillick Portrait Set

    Bought sans Sovereigns so had to fill it myself.

    Best thing is the handy hideaway for the other eight year dates of the Gillick Bullion Sovereigns.

    Seeing a few billboards for shops wanting to buy used gold now, a very good sign. Didn't advertise the rate they were paying but I was reliable informed they were "top prices" 😀

    For this bit of kit, yes, the suppressor purchase was the most involved taking upwards of a year for NFA tax stamp approvals. All preceded by the paperwork submission which includes photos, fingerprints and background check.

    @S2G one slight little bug bear of mine. The date on the "Last Update" bit, can you change it
    In the UK, we use the sensible and logical day, month, year of writing the date, not the stupid yank version of  month, day, year. I know across the pond they like to pretend they invented things they didn't, but I could never get my head around why the hell they came up with writing the date like that. That's like writing the time as 45:11, instead of 11:45

    BRAVO - great little web page ! 
    Really good that I can see at a glance what the best value is. Great time saving tool, Any form of time saving gets a thumbs up from me
    If a newbie asked me "where would be the best priced sovereign from a reputable dealer", i would have just defaulted to saying Atkinsons of the top of myhead. 
    Looking at the figures on your site, IM WRONG ! 
    Points of note from me ! not moans, not complaints, feedback to build on
    1.totally great it shows the % over spot.  This is what used to make HGM SO GOOD and a big factor that made them build their rep & business. Since they changed, this part of their business model, they have just lost a lot of my custom this past 18 months just for this reason 
    You knew the vast majority of stock was ALWAYS +3% over spot , simple as, PILE IT HIGH SELL IT CHEAP - 1/10s, 1/4's or 1oz. 
    Great in the background it crunches the numbers to show at a glance where is current best value. big time saver !!  
    2.  I would use Royal Mint Bullion as the benchmark price and compare others to this to it.  ie saving £9.85 you would pay at the Royal Mint. Also to show to Joe Public how uncompetitive that actual mint that makes the sovereign is ones of the dearest to buy from !
    3.  Other dealers to add, ukbullion.com, ATSbullion, bleyerbullion, have used them all and can be very competitive on price.  You may as well list maybe change JewelryyQuarterBullion to BullionByPost as i think how most folk know them by. It highlights what a rip off they on on price in most cases to.
    4.  As other have said, with time add other coins, krugerrands, maples, usa eagles, fractionals. queens beasts, world gold coins, slabs would be a great addition long term
    5.  I dont feel it needs all jazz and razzamatazz to funk it up.  it does what it says on the tin.  shows your the cheapeat source at a glance, it doesnt needs to be over complicated IMO
    6. I would very happy to pay a one off fee for yearly access to it. maybe keep the sovereigns price for FREE use access 24/7 (the hook in, to show how it works) and add all the additonal coins & fractionals as a chargeable extra say £10 yearly fee would be fair and probaly be made back on buyers first purchase 
    7.  I know its not possible but prices of gold items for sale here on the silverforum here are often lower still, ......well when im selling they are  lol 
    WELL DONE YOU @S2G

    Yes, I'll give you that. But buy something you like, not brand new bullion gold which has no interest at all.
    An 1878 half shield however is a keeper 😊

    Roy reacted to KDave in The benefits of a LISA   
    Yes they are in taxes, that's how saving works as well. You need the next generation to buy your gold from you, your house, work to pay the rent on your investment property, buy the products associated with your SIPP shares. As long as everyone understands that at different parts of their life they will be a saver and later in life a net spender (also the first 18 years of life at least) then it works so long as the population can sustain it. Otherwise - deficit spending, look at the debt and triple lock.

    Roy reacted to KDave in The benefits of a LISA   
    Be careful with the LISA if you ever need help from the state in terms of out of work benefits the LISA is not treated as a pension but as savings. The government will force you to liquidate, claw back the 25% and charge you for the privilege (you get back less than you paid in) and draw it down until you are eligible for the bennies.
    It's genius really. Get people saving for the rainy day, covers both pension, reduces bennies for those who actually need it and haven't made a lifestyle out of claiming, and I reckon it will be means tested later, reducing state pension output. But I'm a pessimist.
    It's a good deal if it all goes to plan in life.
