Is that one of the Perth Mint Dragon bar/coins?

Also, I'm rapidly learning that "just following instructions" is rarely as straightforward as it seems ;)

Is the ring silver?

Wow! Are you doing these to sell? Will you be doing other characters? Love the detailing and the 3D effect!

Saw  The idea for carrot cake ice cream in today is Saturday telegraph.

Carrot cake ice cream? 

I'm sure it will taste better than it looks. 

PS. Would it be ok to post a couple of Sovereigns down to you on Monday in order to catch the Heritage shipment?

OK - so this has got to be the most frustrating pour I have ever done...

Pouring some 100g bars and this is most certainly NOT the number you want to see come up on your scales. 

I know my scales will not be 100% accurate and on some peoples scales this will be over 100g - but it might also be under 100g on others so rather than risk an underweight bar back into the melting pot it goes!

Oh the woes of silver pouring!

Just now, richatthecroft said:

A 99.99g bar might be a desirable proposition to some.  I absolutely adore bars with odd weights stamped on them ?

The problem is that it will be 99.99 on my scales but not on others. 

So maybe 99.9 grams 

Regardless it is too late now, she is back in the pot as we speak!

Point taken.  

@BackyardBullion Is this a little spoiler of the forthcoming 2018 100g Forum Bars? I wonder if they’ll be antiqued?

Nice little Bars the 100g

Could be indeed! Only time will tell ?

We will have to see about the antiquing - It is a balance between cost and time. 

It takes about 5 minutes per bar to polish off the liver of sulphur.

150 bars x 5 minutes equals 12.5 hours

I dont know if my fingers can take that!
