  3. Not sure if a good deal, but using DSC298 and DSC304 codes on RM site can save a bit on the silver A-Z 10p coins. I got a few N for NHS and C for Cricket ones in their acrylic boxes for less than £17 each, compared to RRP of £45 each. Going through cashback sites helped a bit more too!
  4. Thought I'd share, dont think the missus will mind. @kimchi and @Lr103 already know of her sewing skills! She's been sewing scrubs in her spare time (she works in hospital during the day as the pharmacy manager). She's given the scrubs away to our local mental health hospital (not where she works) as they are allowed to wear non NHS spec scrubs. Apparently they've gone done pretty well and have been a bit of a fun talking point around the hospital... Made using a hoard of African wax cotton fabrics she had stored away in the loft for that rainy day! Which design is your fave?

    Heritage Auctions

    Trying to get some info and insight from forum members (in UK) that have sucessfully won coins at an Heritage auction. I'm thinking about bidding on a numismatic gold coin at the next Heritage auction. I just wanted to know what extra costs i should be factoring in apart from the bid and buyers premium. I'm guessing delivery and import tax? Its probably over 180% the gold content price, so is there VAT too? If anybody has been through the process recently was it a smooth dealings? Thanks
  6. The Vit D sprays do. Recommended by many pharmacists. Especially to those with higher melatonin levels in skin so absorb less from the sun (if it ever comes out).
  7. Cheers @Stuntman Usually a HE!

    Olympics 2020

    They were on ebay for 25+ a few weeks ago! I decided to get sets and sell the other commemorative coins in the sets individually which would get back the cost+

    Olympics 2020

    Say the Olympics is postponed or even cancelled. Does that mean there will only be 75 of the gold proof 50p coin from the set? Makes it a bit of a rarity? https://www.royalmint.com/our-coins/ranges/annual-sets/2020-annual-coin-sets/the-2020-united-kingdom-gold-proof-commemorative-coin-set/ They could produce again with a 2021 date if goes ahead next year i guess. I got myself some of the BUNC sets in case the games are cancelled and the 50p becomes sought after for the non pm coin collectors!
