  1. One of my favourite £5 designs along with the 2015 LRM coin. Difficult to get a 70 grade with the LRM, often issues with the frosting on the crown.
  2. HMRC have updated notice 701/21A but section 3 appears to be incomplete as there is no list of coins which are exempt from VAT ? There is also a notice 701 /21 which also covers investment gold, looks like a long read so saving that for a rainy day ! Section 14 gives advice on " how to avoid buying smuggled gold " Not aware of any new import taxes.
  3. Three coin set featuring one ounce silver proof, reverse proof and BU libertad coins. The coins, wooden case, c of a number 47 and outer white sleeve are all in excellent condition. I believe this set is sometimes known as the " bank" set which was not intended for public issue and has a mintage of 1000 sets. £420 PP F+F or BT plus £7.50 RM SD UK shipping only. If you have any questions please ask.

    This company are using the same address as a " dedicated coin dealer and specialist " Seems to be popular ?

  6. I have previously noticed Ebay excluding coins on the £1 FVF but then when the next one came along the exclusion had vanished Just double checked today's £1 FVF and as the above post said there is no coin exclusion.
  7. The price difference of 69 and 70 graded coins is getting really crazy in some cases. Obviously my speciality is the £5 and yesterday i noticed two gold £5 of the same design for sale, the 69 £2400 and the 70 £4400. Yes the coins were being sold by two different seller's but this kind of price gap is becoming more evident in general across the board with the £5. Personally there is no way i would consider paying the above mentioned price for the 70. I will just carry on doing what i always have done, hunting for top grade coins at auction and from contacts and then grading myself which c
  8. You need to remember that the grading companies only use 5 x magnification and they will obviously only see what that shows. Also conservation may be a possibility, it can eradicate certain issues but not others.

  10. I would try asking the mint directly by email for a replacement quoting what the dealer has said. May be a long shot but you never know, some can be very helpful. Which mint produced the coin ?
