  1. Just ordered a couple from you - I was going to be cheeky and ask if you had any particularly nice ones but you sent me a dispatch notification before I got the chance :)!
  2. Seems to have rallied back to an average of around £1,358 at the moment? We'll see what happens at 8am!
  3. New point of sales rules for VAT for all goods imported worth under £135 from 1st January (EU or Non-EU). This includes abolishing the £15 exemption. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/changes-to-vat-treatment-of-overseas-goods-sold-to-customers-from-1-january-2021/changes-to-vat-treatment-of-overseas-goods-sold-to-customers-from-1-january-2021
  4. Hmmm might not be weeks. The housing market still seeing increased prices even in December and likely to see significant activity until the stamp duty holiday ends at the end of the financial year, as does the mortgage holiday scheme. The furlough scheme also lasts till the end of April 2021, so I wouldn't expect movement in a few weeks. When it does there isn't much consensus on the scale although the worst case I've seen for the Housing market is a 8% reduction by the OBR - which given house prices rose by 7.6% this year is more of a correction than a crash. Even when other economic f
  5. Don't see VAT going anywhere - although it no longer has to be at least 15% based on EU regs (excluding reduced rates) a) it still accounts for a third of the UK government's revenue. b) We had a version of VAT before accession to the EU - it was called purchase tax and was levied from 1940 on certain luxury goods (rate then was 33.3%). I looked on Avalara's website (VAT consultancy) and picked out some additional points from their blog to those already made above that may affect UK buyers and EU sellers. For goods sold at £135 or below, sellers or their postal se
  6. Think that ship has sailed (or more accurately isn't sailing at the moment). Royal mail, DHL and UPS all currently have suspended the majority of deliveries between UK and Europe (inc Ireland), due to the border lockdown. I think you'd have to check with the supplier but I wouldnt be hopeful. There's going to be a fair backlog of Christmas delvieries to clear as a result. https://personal.help.royalmail.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5317/~/international-incident-bulletin https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2020/12/21/dhl-stop-all-deliveries-to-the-uk/amp/ https://www.ups.com/
  7. Looks like FTSE 100 caught a cold with £33bn wiped off this morning. Currently down around -2.4% and FTSE 250 by -2.7%. https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/uk-stocks-pound-tier-4-mutant-covid-19-strain-europe-shuts-border-christmas-food-082305949.html European shares similarly affected. Might be a shorter term blip if they get mass testing sorted for lorry drivers. The announcement of the higher possibility of the new strain being able out mutate the efficacy of the current vaccines (requiring further modifications) might not help either!
  8. Well if I do get the £25 amazon gift card I'm treating the purchase as effectively getting it at just over spot purchase which is pretty good going for a 1/10th! If not its still a nice little coin!
  9. Got a 1/10th from the Royal Mint (using the daily mail amazon gift card voucher code so lets see if that turns up in a few months). My its so small but perfectly formed ! Not great quality pics but thought the 1p might give an idea of scale.
  10. If they're not at the same address I suppose so as its per household. Top cashback website offering 5% back for new Royal mint customers (or 3% for existing ones), which would give the same / marginally better deal anyway.
  11. Looks like they've tightened up their processes. Tried to get another and it wouldn't even process the order. past the payment stage. Sent them an email - just in case it was a technical issue and they said it was because I had reached my household limit for the year.
  12. I think one got away.... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-55215610
  13. Is it? Price has gone up above £1398 looking at bullion vault charts. I assumed inital rise due to the drop on Sterling but not sure that would account for all of it. Latest rise in the day seems to coincide with opening of US markets.
  14. Still a mixed picture - possible short term pullback and then an increase to £19.50 or above? Was toying with trying to get an EU order in before January but not looking attractive right now and the window is closing fast.

  15. Interesting Reuters article suggesting dollar could drop in value by another 10 to 20%. https://www.hl.co.uk/news/2020/12/4/is-a-post-covid-currency-war-coming
