    WAITING LIST UPDATE - 2nd May
    Ladies and gentlemen I have never experienced such a large number of requests/messages and reservations for any of these projects.
    Thank you, it is very humbling to see the energy and passion that people are showing to get these bars. 
    Reminder for previous bar owners
    For those of you that have a 2019 bar YOU ARE GUARANTEED first refusal at that bar in 2020 which means you are GUARANTEED a bar this year if you want it. 
    We have been sending out messages and emails to people asking whether they want to take up their bars for 2020 and many people have been doing so but there have been some that have released their bars for all the new members out there. 
    If you do not want to take up your bar please let me know ASAP so that we can allocate it as available which helps with the following....
    The waiting list is growing hard and fast!
    For all you new members and would be new owners it is becoming clear to me that there could well not be enough bars to go around and fulfil everybody's quantity requirements. 
    At the time of writing this post we have requests for over 120 bars across 60+ new people. This is unprecedented and awesome, but it does leave me with questions about how to make sure we fairly distribute out any available bars in due course. 
    So, the waiting list will continue to grow - if you want to put your name down please comment on this thread or private message me. 
    The fairest way forward - a waiting list lottery
    There is no one way to make everybody happy but this is the fairest way I can think of. We have customers all around the world in a multitude of time zones and I feel that putting up a thread to bid for ranking on the waiting list would be unfair to some members advantageous for others.
    It is also a right pain to manage from my end. 
    So what I envisage is, when the time comes we will have all members who are on the waiting list to be placed in a randomised order of preference. This will form the list for me to work down in getting bars allocated to new people. 
    I know this will end with some people being disappointed but it is completely fair and the best way forward in my opinion. 
    We may have to restrict the number of bars you can get
    To make this even fairer and to allow as many people to get at least some of these bars we might have to restrict the number of bars you can purchase if you are on the waiting list. 
    I will confirm this in more detail when a clearer picture arises of the number of bars available. 
    Specific serial numbers for waiting lists
    I get that people might want a specific serial number or not bother with the purchase. Unfortunately this is so hard to manage in a fair way that we will be asking for a commitment to purchase before we devise yet another fair way to allocate out remaining serial numbers. We will be able to publish ahead of time what numbers are available and the method by which we can allocate or have members compete within a thread for their desired numbers before this purchase decision can be made - but again we will not be able to make everyone happy whatever we decide. 
    The waiting list continues to grow
    So, please keep getting in touch and I will add your name to the waiting list. No payment is needed at this time as we cannot guarantee anything. 
    I anticipate at least 2-3 weeks before we can start the allocation process.
    Thank you once again
    So, once again a huge thank you to all your support - it is amazing to see and be a part of!

    UPDATE - 2nd May 2020
    Wow
    The number of people asking for bars has been quite overwhelming! Private messages and posts on this thread have been flying in over the last 12 hours and it is very humbling indeed.
    A little more patience please!
    Members new and old have been asking for bars. 
    Until we have a firm indication from previous owners we cannot 100% guarantee any purchases.
    So, new potential owners will be added to the waiting list and at a predetermined time and date we will be giving everyone a fair shot at not only ordering bar(s) but also specific serial numbers.
    For any members who DO NOT want their bar for 2020 (having previously owned a 2019 edition) please can you confirm this ASAP so we can plan.
    I suspect this process will drag out over the coming months so we ask for a little more patience as we progress over the next few weeks.
    We want to give everyone a fair opportunity to get what they want!
    Thank you all so much for supporting the forum and our poured silver.

    dancavendish reacted to NeutronJack in 2020 Oriental Border Britannia - Last in the Series   
    Interesting to note that the 2020 Oriental Border Britannia (Mintage of 100,000) is apparently going to be the third and FINAL Oriental Britannia coin from The Royal MInt, following the 2018 and 2019 versions.
    Only a slight variation in the border design compared to 2019, it seems.
    Personally, I've liked all three variations of the Oriental Border Britannia, both in gold and silver. But, perhaps it's a smart move by The Royal Mint to limit this 'Oriental Border' theme to a series of three.

    It does fit the coin Dan , but it's not a like for like fit and the exterior dimensions are larger...so therefore only fits in the lower level in my 10oz boxs...
     
    I know Andy from coin gallery is looking at obtaining some, and was working out costings from the guys that make his 2oz capsules..

    @Shaunbarry @5huggy
    We (BYB household) are taking a break from group orders until at very least the new year.
    Busy period coming up with Christmas as well as some surgery for me in November and the fact we have been busy/stressed with these for the better part of 2 years now, we want a break from them!
    That said, we are just waiting on the outcome of the Brexit shenanigans this week and will (hopefully) be able to reveal a discount code for use with the EU mint so that forum members can order directly with the EU mint in the run up to Christmas.
    Watch this space, an announcement will be made public on the forum in due course!

    dancavendish reacted to BackyardBullion in We are sorry....Group Orders are no more blame VAT registration!!!   
    You make very valid points. 
    The unboxing videos alone are a clear way we benefit.
    These are the same points my accountant made today.
    I'm afraid that for the time being we will NOT be doing another group order.
    The decision comes down to the fact that it is an interpretation of the guidance and VAT laws. Our interpretation may be different to the inspector that audits me. 
    We don't want to end up in a tribunal and face countless legal bills and back VAT bills. 
    Even though the chance of this is low - it still puts us off.
    I will be addressing this decision in more detail in a video at a later date - but for the time being....
    We are sorry, no more group orders. 
    We are going to talk with the EU mint about how we can still support the silver forum buyers in perhaps the form of a shipping discount code.
    But from Mrs BYB and myself, we want to extend our apologies for no more group orders and out heartfelt thanks to everyone who has joined and supported the orders we have done in the past.

    They all have reasons for doing what they do, but they all buy (and ultimately sell) securities!

    Today is your lucky day, because The European Mint has just taken physical delivery of their stock and that means we can included them in this (what will no doubt be) a pretty intensive group order.
