  1. Something I do on the side which is often overlooked by people is switching banks. Most offer £100+ plus some form of other perks eg I've just switched to Lloyds and they will give me £125 plus 6 free cinema tickets. Worth a look for something that takes 15 minutes. https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/banking/compare-best-bank-accounts for anyone looking to play the banks at their own game!
  2. This is exactly what happened to me, with the exact same coin. I used a rubber and made it 10 times worse. I would not expect anything above spot for these types of coins to be honest. Don't worry mate, you were not the first and you wont be the last who makes that mistake.
  3. Brilliant thread, love a good watch, I don't have anything like what has been shown but this is my current timepiece. I love the bronze dials on the white face with light brown leather strap. 30th birthday in 2 1/2 years and looking to get something special. This thread has given me some great ideas!
  4. Hi all, Looking for a tube of britannias, PM me if anyone is willing to sell. Thanks Max
  5. Thanks for this just added 3 more half sovereigns to my stack!
  6. Just a heads up though if you do have any more 20 cent coins from Australia, check if you have any from 1966 with a wavy baseline on the "2", as it is worth a lot more than its face value.
  7. That's quite a statement, there are some parts you've mentioned here that are fair points. The more i read this thread the more i agree with unlected officials and I'll put my hand up and say i never thought of this before i voted. But I'm curious to know how someone who voted remain is for a pro rascist regime, as surely if someone wanted to remain , they then know that they can move anywhere in Europe without any issues, and vice versa for anyone else and adopt a culture they aren't used to. Many remainers voted because they thought that no good has ever come out of segregation... This is quite the opposite of racism. I may have misinterpreted what you meant by this though so feel free to correct me, I'm not here for an argument 😊.
  8. Do you have capsules to go with these if sold individually?
  9. This. There are people who voted to remain, myself as well as others, that don't do this of course. This is the extreme side of the whole thing. People that see an opportunity to cause trouble because everyone else does it. "Empty vessels make the loudest noise" is the quote that springs to mind, correct me if I'm wrong. As a remainer, or someone who voted for it, I was devastated at the result and I don't mind admitting it(as it seems to be very pro Brexit on this thread). However with the last 3 years, its just been an absolute mess, and whichever way you voted its been painful to watch. and actually I'm glad this is happening, because I just hope its over soon, and we can all get on with our lives. Dividing the country over something like this was never going to end well. If any economy can survive leaving the EU, its us.
  10. Ordered mine on the 7th August and received today. I used the telephone number to order and had no issues, pleasant conversation etc. I did not have much communication through the process since ordering, however I used their live chat box to speak to them and got a reply in seconds advising my order would be with me by the end of the week. Had a text come through yesterday and it's here today! Apart from not knowing what's going after ordering, the whole experience has been just fine. Thank you for my half sovereign @TheBuckinghamCollection

It might just take a while to come through which given the feedback before, I expected.
  12. Not only that. Wages have fallen behind house prices by 333% so it's no surprise, that someone in the age bracket of 18-39, struggles with buying. I'll see if I can find the link to where it says this, it was an interesting read.
  13. Good for you! We should all aim to be less attached to our smart phones, I applaud anyone who doesn't have one and has a regular phone like a Nokia just to use for calling people, no more, no less. I also think like this, especially when I go for a coffee and I see people sitting around a table, and no one is talking to each other, just on their phones. Literally makes me want to ask why they came out in the first place 🤣. Don't get me wrong they are useful, but you can see why people develop a complex when it comes to social interaction and self confidence.
  14. That entirely depends on what car you're buying though, if you have a budget of say £10k for a classic car but it needs 4k repairs after buying it (very possible if engine needs rebuild), then you're 40% in the red already of original market value, that's even if you bought it at the value its actually worth Classic cars require you knowing your stuff, or you could get burned big time and fall into a money pit. Unless you're talking silly money and get a Ferrari GTO then it wouldn't matter.
  15. They are pretty good, but just be careful you don't need the money as 25% fee will be taken upon withdrawal, so you'll actually lose money. I think also the threshold is £4000, not £3000 (even better!). Options of cash and stocks are available as well depending on your risk tolerance. If, like me, your planning in buying in 3-4 years time probably best to stick with cash but ultimately its that persons decision whichever they choose.
