  1. Bullionbypost is out of the 2021 Britannias too and the advertised price for them is £33-£35 each. Thats a tenner per coin more than what I bought mine for last year!
  2. I tried a few different solvents yesterday with no success. Left the coins soaking overnight in the acetone and this morning all the ink had gone. The coins look lovely.
  3. That ink is really hard to shift. I've had mine sitting in a glass beaker with 98% acetone (Wilko nail varnish remover) for a couple of hours. The ink is slowly getting fainter so should be good by the morning

    925 silver

    I don't have any videos but if you look up sreetips on youtube, he has so many videos explaining the whole process. That's where I learned how to fine tune what I was already doing. There are also methods of purifying silver without the use of nitric acid, which is hard to get a hold of in the UK without a licence from the Home Office.

    925 silver

    Have to say that .925 seems to be on the up and up. I've been looking at quite a few auctions on easylive and it seems that silver flatware (cuttlery) is making above spot more often. Totally agree with @SidS that cig cases etc are good buys right now because they are out of fashion. However, talking to my usual suspects that hunt scrap, Sterling seems to becoming more in demand
  6. You don't pay the seller VAT. VAT is paid to HMRC at the port of import into the UK (from the EU as far as I can tell). Your second "chapter" doesn't make any sense. Anyway a bit of a moot point. I tried to order from the European Mint today and low and behold,... there is no shipping option for the UK. You have to arrange your own pickup at an additional cost of 15 Euros to the European Mint. Might be because DHL etc have stopped transport to the UK because of COVID2 etc but will need to wait and see.
  7. I'm so tempted just to order 2 x 10oz coins from the European Mint, grab HMRC by the short 'n' curlies and sort this whole issue out.
  8. Pulled from Collins Dictionary which is used in UK courts collectible in American English (kəˈlektəbəl) adjective 1. capable of being collected noun 2. an object suitable for a collection, originally a work of fine art or an antique, now including also any of a wide variety of items collected as a hobby, for display, or as an investment whose value may appreciate Also: collectable Most material © 2005, 1997, 1991 by Penguin Random House LLC.

  9. Yeah as I said, generally 1oz coins are dead in the water. It's 2oz and up that will benefit. You need to upgrade that furnace of yours to accept 10oz whoppers from now on
  10. I'd say limited edition collectibles or gifts would cover that. I'm in the process of filing for a refund on the VAT for the WW2 75th anniversary Silver Eagle. Will update when I have an answer from HMRC
  11. Quantity isn't an issue. If the Royal Mint says the coins are collectible, then that is the VAT code that should be applied. For all HMRC know you could be a reseller on ebay or a High Street shop. It doesn't matter what the end purpose is, it's the imported goods that matter and RM states they are collectibles i.e. 5% VAT on imports.
  12. I disagree @silverscotty. It clearly states on the Royal Mint website that £5 coins (i.e. Queens Beasts) are collectibles therefore the tax code should be for collectibles and be hit by 5% VAT. HMRC couldn't argue against that no matter how many you ordered
  13. @BackyardBullion Just thinking out loud for the poeple like yourself that would befefit from less VAt on silver for your business. For us stackers it means if we want cheap silver we start stacking 10oz'ers which isn't ideal
