  1. Yes - here is a note on investment gold coins which may help https://www.gov.uk/guidance/investment-gold-coins-and-vat-notice-70121a
  2. I think that was when they started - "re-purposing"😁
  3. According to Gov.UK "You must register for VAT if your VAT taxable turnover goes over £85,000 (the ‘threshold’), or you know that it will. Your VAT taxable turnover is the total of everything sold that is not VAT exempt."
  4. If he's really a friend don't buy it: one or other of you will come to resent the other for taking advantage. If you really want it then why not say this. According to NGC the price for such a coin in AU50 is $1250 in AU53 $1500 in AU55 $1750 and in AU58 $2000. So he is looking for something between AU53 and 55. You buy it at £1300 and pay for getting it graded with NGC. If it comes back as AU53 or better then that is it but if it comes back lower than AU53 he pays you back £150 per grade (well £150 if it is AU50, £300 if it is XF and £450 if it is VF) There is always the possib
  5. I thought they did but it is not on their mintages list https://www.perthmint.com/documents/Bullion/The Australian Silver Bu Privy Coin 2011 to 2019.pdf
  6. There are some specialist forums for ancient coins and you may have more luck posting on one of them. Not to be disloyal to TSF of course!
  7. Looks like this one (but cruder) http://www.wildwinds.com/coins/greece/macedonia/mende/i.html Expensive in silver https://www.icollector.com/item.aspx?i=9258423 I assume they came in bronze as well (an obol?)
  8. You could put a wanted ad in the Trade section. I got my first proof silver Libertad from Weightons some years ago - they still seem to have some in stock for not much more than I paid which is interesting considering that bullion coins have just about doubled in price. https://weightoncoin.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=7_5011_5014&products_id=3270 Or you could just watch this video
  9. Thanks. Now you need to find a proof version. The design really stands out on the proofs,
  10. Well that's OK. For a moment I thought it was a DIY job.
  11. Who authenticated it? The slab does not look like NGC or PCGS to me.
  12. It does not look cleaned to me (no parallel lines that I can see). There is a knock on the rim near the VI of Victoria which might be from a clasp of a ring but you would expect others if it had been mounted in a ring. I am sure someone will be able to tell you if this a rare coin - wide JEB? - so that it has value even if it is ex mount.
