    SilverHoarder got a reaction from DHD2020 in Elizabeth II gold sovereigns BU   
    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.

    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

    So, where did the other 210.5g go?  Not as good a deal as your coach originally proposed and you're only saving yourself about £25 on the spot price of pure silver.  Bit of a bummer

    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

    Acetone on a soft cloth should remove it, or just soak the coin in it and gently swish it around.  We used it all the time in the lab to remove permanent marker from glassware and metalware.  Common or garden nail varnish remover is usually made from a mixture of acetone and water, so just raid the Mrs makeup drawer ;).

    You could always refine the 925 bar to 9999 fine using electrolysis in a silver nitrate bath then pour your own pure silver bars.  It's relatively easy to do.

    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.

    Only orders under £135 would trigger the European dealer charging VAT on the sale.

    If you try another German dealer maybe you will get one that will send to the UK.
    This is a link to a comparison site of lots of German dealers.  You can search for the coin you want and it will give you a list of dealers offering it and their prices.  It's a pretty good site.

    They way it looks now is that a European dealer should be charging you the 20% VAT at the point of sale (supply side) on behalf or HMRC (and then sending it to HMRC) which is probably why the European mint isn't doing it yet until they've sorted out the details.  My slightly flippant point was only that potentially if you can prove that all coins are numismatic then you could fill in a claim with HMRC to only pay 5% by reclaiming the rest back from HMRC.

    @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

    Might be slightly off topic but now that we will be free of EU regulations, maybe it's time we lobbied the UK Govt. to remove the absurd VAT element on sales of silver bullion?

    I love 925 because it's usually way cheaper than spot for equivalent silver weight.  Chuck it through a refining cell and pour my own pure silver bars.  I need to get with it and start talking to the assay office though as it's time I got those bars certified.

    @SilverHoarderTotally agree.  
     
    I don’t want to annoy anyone but I recently went into a shop where they were selling fingerprinted proofs(so bullion) for 700 with no room for discount, and some (very junky) 925 1977 coins for 50quid.  I guess some people buy at these price but wow.
