    This works for me - I hate feet and most adults.

    Brexit means Brexit

    Absolutely this. My line of work involves very regular contact with the EU commission and Member State representatives, and as a consequence I was the only leave voter in a team of 30-40 staff. I told them all before and after the referendum, that regardless of the result, it simply wouldn’t be allowed to happen. I’m sticking to that.

    1/4 oz QB Question

    The RM changed the observe on their bullion offerings about 18 months ago, simple as that really. i prefer the new version and helpfully for the Mint, it hides imperfections more effectively.

    Social Media Warning!!!

    My approach is to assume that: - every media outlet is propagandising, one way or the other. - anybody who contacts me without being requested is trying to sell me something I don’t want or need - every website I visit is stealing all the data it possibly can and doing something nefarious with it Do any of these things concern me greatly? Not really. Can they sensibly be avoided? Not really, at least not without undue effort. Are these things going to stop in my lifetime? No. Assess, accept, move on.

  15. Yes, there’s no benefit to using TransferWise if paying by card. The cost saving comes from saving bank fees on a transfer.
  16. Sorry everybody, I've broken Transferwise. Was 4/5th's of the way through a transaction this morning when the site crashed and it's still down. I'm sure it wasn't my fault really and thankfully, I hadn't transferred any money when it went down.
  17. It’s a money transfer company that allows you to pay for things in foreign currencies significantly cheaper than doing it via a bank.

    Re: Queens Head at the front of the slab - @Numistacker it's not just you, it's wrong, wrong, wrong! Is it posible to request which way round to put it when sending?

    Good stuff - I can see the proofiness in the new pics.

    I hope I’m not being a party pooper but that doesn’t look like a proof and is therefore the Cu/Ni version.

    completed Gold. Where do I start?

    Agree that the difference in half vs full sov isn’t as noticeable as the difference in 1/10 vs 1/4. I keep trying 1/10 and every time I buy one I immediately sell it again....

    completed Gold. Where do I start?

    Although this is sound advice, I was underwhelmed by the size of half sovs or 1/10 oz coins, they’re just too small to enjoy, so now stick to full sovs and 1/4 oz coins.
