  1. Welcome 🖖🏻 You’re certainly off to a good start with that silver Moon landing coin.
  2. Today I received some absolutely delicious Blackpool rock and thirteen silver Kookaburras from @ChardsCoinandBullionDealer. It would be discourteous of me not to showcase this complimentary addition to my order on the Silver Forum. 2018 1oz Australian Silver Kookaburra (BU). Obverse: The Ian Rank-Broadley likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination. Reverse: Portrays a flying kookaburra against the backdrop of a full moon. The inscription "Australian Kookaburra", The Perth Mint's "P" mintmark and the 2018 year-date are also included in the design. The 2018 silver Kookaburra not only features a gorgeous design, they are also produced in a limited mintage of 500,000 coins. The laughing kookaburra is the largest member of the kingfisher species, and a bird synonymous with the Australian bush. This bird species is indigenous to Australia and is known for their call, which is said to sound like echoing human laughter.
  3. I ordered this Peli 2050 Storm Case from Atkinsons. Interestingly, it’s possible to stack the same number of air-tite tubes on top of these seven tubes to make it fourteen.
  4. Thanks @AurumArgenti! I’m glad you picked up on this gold nugget find which I was just now reading about. I was staggered by the £80,000 valuation for the 4.2oz nugget which is worth more than its weight in gold. However, the large premium above spot must be due to its rarity as you quite rightly point out.
  5. You don’t need to apologise! It’s always a pleasure doing business with you! Thanks very much for confirming your new bank account details. However, I do need to apologise for the bank transfer delay which might be due to the change in your bank account details. The order was eventually processed.
  6. I recently ordered this beautiful gold Philharmonic coin from the Royal Mint Bullion who have a limited selection of world coins. The Philharmonics are very popular with the Asian market, especially Japan. I bought the 1oz gold Philharmonic to complement my 1/4oz gold version which was also minted in 2018. The reverse features a cornucopia of musical instruments used by the Vienna Philharmonic, including a Vienna horn, bassoon, harp, and four violins centered on a massive cello. Both the reverse and obverse designs were produced by the Chief Engraver of the Austrian Mint, Thomas Pesendorfer. The obverse depicts the Musikverein Pipe Organ. Located inside of the Golden Music Hall, it is a fixture within the home theatre of the Vienna Philharmonic and is situated in the Innere Stadt neighbourhood of Vienna. Founded in 1842, the history of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra dates back much further. As early as 1833, orchestral performances took place in Vienna and were done by ad hoc orchestras.
  7. I hope I’m not the victim of some sophisticated fraud and the coins I ordered from Chards arrive next week. I’m beginning to get worried. I ordered the coins with their new bank account details.
  8. Yes, that’s the one! They should confirm it soon.
  9. I recently ordered some coins from Chards and noticed as of 28 November 2019 that their bank details have changed. Their new bank details are: Sort Code: 20-10-11 Account Number: 33692337 Account Name: Chard (1964) Ltd I use the account name “Chard” for short.
  10. I hope I’m not the odd one out here but I love seeing and learning about these archeological exhibits in the British Museum. It’s not their monetary value that interests me but their historical value. The sentences need to be excessive to put people off selling history. It’s a magnificent find.
  11. @Marc is definitely your man for proof rarities.
  12. @sixgun is spot on as always! Its reverse features a large, beautiful maple leaf and a privy mark reading “20 Years Ans” in honour of the 20th anniversary of the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins. Yes, it’s certainly worth more if you can find the right buyer and keep it in its original sealed mint packaging. The Silver Forum is a good place to start!
