  1. 304 now, just added mine!
  2. Id say go almost exclusively for gold, and then pick up the odd bit of pretty silver for no other reason than you might fancy it. With the gold, as others have mentioned, you want pure bullion, Sovs and Krugs all the way, unless you thing CGT is going to be an issue, then swap the Krugs for Brits. With the Sovs, i'd say avoid buying every month, save up for 2-3 months and buy a larger quantity, there are plenty of dealers that offer closer to spot if you buy 5 or more.
  3. Yep im afraid so. One set of VAT to the country you buy it in (assuming that country doesn't allow VAT free export only sales) and one lot of VAT for HMRC.
  4. You'd be looking at at least 20% VAT and possibly some customs\handling fees. I think the fees part might depend on what particular delivery service they come in by, but definitely a VAT charge.
  5. I'm sorry to say this screams fake to me too, i will differ to those more well versed in the absolute specifics of the coin as i err more on the bullion side of things, but the listings on that site and the way they are done mirrors dozens of fakes both for coins\bullion and other items that i have seen over the years. Always linked to being the property of someone who has now passed away or found in a house clearance. Thus providing the perfect excuse to claim they knew nothing of the items provenance if they are challenged on it being fake. They also almost always never post them tracked, th
  6. I'm very much a bullion guy, so tend to go for whatever has the lowest % over spot at the time so i mostly have Krugs. I do appreciate a nice design though so have been tempted in the past by things like the Perth Mint Kangaroos.
  7. From memory, 1919 was the last year they were made in Sterling, they were then debased to .50 from 1920 till 1946 when silver was phased out completely.
  8. Welcome to the forum! It's never too late to get into PM's, but we probably all wish we got in earlier! 😂
  9. Don't tell me things like that! I've already spent my quota for the month! 😂
  10. Sovereigns will be the most liquid and as others have mentioned, it allows you to sell only a portion of your holding if you need\want to. However my first gold purchase was a 1oz Krugerrand. I'm unlikely to be worried about CGT any time soon and whilst i can appreciate a pretty coin, my heart is driven by pure bullion stacking. The 1oz Krug was the lowest premium 1oz coin i could find at the time so that was ultimately what sold me on that one.
  11. They either need to supply you the product or give you a full purchase price refund. Depending exactly what the site said when you ordered it will denote how long delivery might take. If you bought it on the understanding it would be delivered when available, then if there was no specified time, then you could be in for a long wait, regular customer service updates might take a little bit of the sting out of it. However it's not what i would call good business practice to offer items on this sort of open ended term. As for buying back what has never been supplied at a profit to the business in
  12. Every once in a while one of the companies that tend to advertise in the papers do post a cracking deal, but generally they use them as loss leaders to get your info to then endlessly try to sell you stuff WAY over the odds. Personally i avoid them and just focus on they stuff from the more established bullion companies and private individuals. If you have a wood burning stove, the junk mail might just save you good money in kindling though
  13. Thought i'd share one of my old bits in the stack
  14. On general run of the mill bullion bars it will make no difference, especially if you are selling back to a bullion dealer, they only care about how much it weights, how fine it is and what the spot price of the day is. Having said that, there are some bars that fall into the collectible category like PAMP and older Johnson Matthey which could command a premium due to the name. The only other thing i can think of is Umicore or Metalor might inspire a little more confidence in a buyer if you were selling directly to another person who was not perhaps overly familiar with other brands. So i woul
  15. I'm stacking for a mix of reasons. Hedge against inflation, an extra income to dip into for retirement and hoping to pass some down as an inheritance. Then there is always the issue of if it's not in the bank, they cant take it, especially when it's been lost in an unfortunate boating accident.
