  1. Everything from my remaining order arrived today - have to say, I am very impressed with the Mint's additional packing. All coins look good enough (perfect?) to the naked eye. Not gonna spoil them by checking under magnification. Now to decide whether to grade or not... Here's my full collection, it does look pretty sweet

  2. TSF is the largest independent English speaking worldwide Precious Metals forum in the world. There are currently over 16,690 registered members. We have a wide range of industry specialists and dealers on the forum. We are very proud of all of the members here that regularly provide helpful and informative information for others and go out of their way to help out fellow members of TSF. We are also likely the fastest growing, take a look at our statistics for yourself: Overall 2021 Statistics: TSF remains one of the most active communities online for people discussing precious metals and it's still growing. 11,673 new topics started on The Silver Forum in 2021. That is the equivalent of 31 new topics per day! 101,259 new posts were made on The Silver Forum in 2021. That is the equivalent of over 277 new posts per day! 3490 new member registrations in 2021 Prize Draws: As well as 12 months of Premium Member Prize Draws, each giving away 1oz of silver to a lucky winner there was also over 24oz of additional silver prizes given away. There were also a lot of charity auctions ran by our members to help raise money for causes that are close to their hearts as well as other charities. We hope to increase the number of Prize Draws and draws to promote TSF as our budget allows. 2021 Trade Statistics: A core part of TSF is the trade section. Many Premium Members have reported saving more than the cost of membership simply by the savings on the items they have purchased from other forum members. Many members also prefer the personal touch of dealing directly with other members. As well as the other listed benefits, Premium Members also get to see the trade listings 3 days before standard members, and with many if not all items that are priced competitively going within this time frame it is worth upgrading to get first look at this items for sale. 7927 trade topics were started in 2021. That is over 21 new trade listings per day. Some of these were wanted listings, but with the majority of ‘for sale’ listings containing multiple items and some containing extensive collections for sale as individual items, it means the items listed for sale far exceed this number. That is over 660 new trade listings per month! This arguably makes TSF’s trade section the largest precious metals trade section of any forum or group. Some other notable things that happened on TSF in 2021: - We released a TSF branded NGC label & partnership with Coins of the Realm to provide trustworthy NGC grading services and auction submissions for members. - We released the Platinum Offers Program for selected dealers programme, extending the benefits for Platinum Members without any increase to membership cost. We also simultaneously introduced a higher tier Platinum PLUS Premium Membership package in order to provide extended Platinum Offers and discounts. - TSF migrated to faster servers with better worldwide distribution and page loading speeds, meanwhile also increasing the security from potential DDOS attacks. The servers that we use are used by many large scale European businesses. - TSF starting paying for a dedicated email distribution system that large scale businesses use. There is now an additional cost for us to send out emails and email notifications, however it means that notifications can now be delivered more quickly and without delays or backlogs during peak periods. - We welcomed several new Official Sponsors, a full list of current Official Sponsors, and dealer sub forums can be seen here. Committed to maintaining a FREE standard membership option, with optional Premium Membership with low prices and high value for money. We are committed to maintaining a FREE membership option for those who can’t afford to financially support TSF but would still like to be a member. We are also not increasing Premium Membership prices despite a predicted inflation of over 5% this year in the UK, and inflation in many other countries worldwide also set to increase. We do however need your help to help support TSF to grow further. For those who can afford to do so, we would be grateful if you are able to support TSF with a Premium Membership. We hope that TSF has been useful for you in some way, either via the information found here, or the deals you have got in the trade section, or the additional monies received by selling in the trade section vs selling to a dealer, please consider upgrading your membership today to support TSF. For those that decide to purchase Premium Membership, a whole range of additional benefits is included in each package. Please review each package for a full list of included benefits.

  6. I have two strong beliefs 1. Royal mint practices 2. Flipping on TSF members who missed out on the stupid coin lottery So out of protest I have bought a 1oz coin as one of the "lucky ones" and will be selling on here for what I paid in the good faith of a solid TSF community member for the benefit of the community So, the terms are If you want the coin for 95.00 plus 5.00 post (100 quid cost to me) plus special delivery postage making a total of 107.85 to be paid My walk to the post office and listening to the miserable gets in the queue is free of charge How will I do it By 6pm tommorow night 25th to allow people chance, put a thumbs up if you want to be included in the draw I will then ask the missus to pick a name she hasn't a clue who's who's Whoever she picks gets the coin No returning etc if its not a grade 70 the coin I get will be the coin you recieve and also I request thst the winner doesn't flip in good faith which is only fair I have no interest in pants downing forum members, the TSF has given me alot so will return the favour

  18. Received these three lovely Crowns. Thanks @Iacabu for the ‘Restoration of the Monarchy’ £5. That’s the first tray in my modern cabinet filled with both £5’s and a dozen Piedfort £5’s. Three different Portraits here, I’m always surprised that the IRB Portrait endured for so long. In my opinion it’s neither a flattering depiction nor is it distinguished- and unfortunately spanned the releases of some very special Sovereign releases.
