  1. Today I recieved my first George V sovereign. I mainly purchase QE Sovereigns but decided I'd like to get this one via the Silver Forum. Thanks @Lindeman,
  2. I had some silver shipped from European Mint last week. I had paid for shipping but had to wait about a week for them to parcel and give to Captital Logistics. It took about 6 days to get to me last week via UPS. I had ordered as part of the Group Order but decided to get it shipped directly. I had been waiting a while for status on coins to change from preorder to available and gave up waiting and asked if they had them . I was very surprised when they said they had them all ready to ship. Hence paid the shipping to get them ASAP.
  3. I tend to store the coins in the mint tubes and then in the monster box. They seem a snug fit in the monster box. But agree coins could scratch when case is moved about unless I compact the coins in the tubes with a piece of foam The monster box Not the easiest thing to lift and move about. The monster box isnt that great The lid is easy to come off when carrying (not airtight). I decided to look at foam options this evening and was thinking around rubberized foam material would probably do the job but doesnt look like a standard thing for peli cases and probably would need source some and come up with a customization of some sorts. I did come across the plastic dividers but agree would not be suitable for kg's of weight Will definitely look at the micro peli case for the sovereign tubes
  4. Hi brya0123 Many thanks, I came across a dimensions calculator on the peli website (spain website) and it recommended the 1450 pelicase case based on 10.5 x 8.5 x 4 inches for a single royal mint monster box. I had seen reviews on youtube and the handle and case is highly durable I telephoned the Uk sales team and they quoted £120 + vat for the 1450 + 6 pounds postage and had a whole range of colours. It was a bit more than I wanted to pay and am holding off until next pay day and may go for one next week when I get paid. I have two monster boxes so looking to store the other one aswell I feel I do need a carryable proper case like one of these as want to store away and protect from the elements all year round ( moisture / heat etc) i.e not to see my silver again for a while. Looking to hold onto the coins for a long time. The 1450 has holes on either end to take padlocks. Peli sells their own padlock but is is a cable padlock so not ideal for secure storage of silver as it still allows the case to slightly open and was recommended for anything valuable to get my own padlocks I might get one of the micro peli cases to hold the sovereign tubes I have. I saw that some of those microscases can also hold 3-5 tubes of Silver coins The sales lady told me the foam would be sufficient to hold the container size I quoted. Amazon are selling the Peli 1450 for £145 each. . Its a pick and pluck fom so can be shaped to hold the monster box by picking out foam squares/cubes by hand until desired mould is achieved I think you would be correct about the movement of the monster box in there even with the foam as I never thought about that. The foam didnt look at all study. I'll defintely have a rethink and may ask Peli if they have sturdier fills
  5. A moment of dread came over me today and I am looking to store away my monster boxes of silver and was wondering if anyone has been able to store a full Royal Mint monster box worth of coins in a Peli Case or similar. I was looking at Peli Cases but have no idea what (model / case number) would be suitable. I have been thinking for some time about purchasing 2 Peli Cases or similar , one for each monster box. I have been thinking the peli cases are good solution for portability/waterproof etc Also is it a must to have silica gel in each coin tube. NB I am not looking to bury them, well not yet anyway Grateful for any advice
  6. Thanks Lawrence I'll do that now as will definitely want to put some orders in Have a nice weekend!
  7. Thanks Lawrence! Really appreciated. I will be looking to get more gold coins for mum as she want to convert money from stocks and shares into gold whereever she can Thanks for the heads up with regards to the coin and also stock consignment looking to arriving for May As mentioned the coin is really nice and I like it but mum was holding out for CGT exempt coins for the reasons above. i think in the long run she will be sticking to UK based gold. I have bought Perth Mint silver on here and really like it Sincere Thanks
  8. Thanks 5huggy! Will do
  9. Thanks Liam84, I agree the coin is worth more than a Gold Britannia but had reached out to a collector who sells me my sovereigns He mentioned the world buys Royal Mint not Aussie Mint, Perth Mint etc. He also said the same about colourized coins and said stay away from them. The CGT aspect was the most important thing for my mother. Just grateful to be getting a refund to get her a UK 1 oz gold coin. Now in the market for one.
  10. Hi BxlSteve TBH I am happy with the refund as lots of dealers including CHARDS are on preorder of stock At the time of order they had MINTY condition last 5 years 1 oz Gold Britannia's They must have sold out over the weekend when I made my order. It was showing as in stock at the time Not sure when stock of Gold Britannia's is coming and they have 22 ct 1 oz Britannias and offered me one of those instead I would be happy with one of those but my mum wants 24 ct so in the end relieved to get a refund I am sending back today next day SD and was promised a refund Many Thanks
  11. As I posted Chards called No stock left so they are refunding me.
  12. I called CHARDs and cannot get through so have emailed them Fingers crossed that they can address the issue and resolve it
  13. Thanks HelpingHands! I'll call CHARDS and arrange for a swap. Hopfully they have stock to do the exchange/swap
  14. I purchased a 1 oz Gold Coin Britannia for my mother and was sent a 1oz Gold 2004 Perth Mint Colourized Lunar Monkey I was wondering how much it is worth. I had bought the coin for my mother and promised her a preowned UK Gold Britannia VAT and CGT free We were both unsure of what to think when we saw the coin when I opened the parcel Not sure to return it and ask for a Gold 1oz Britannia or keep it My mother does not want to make a fuss but I was thinking of getting it replaced. Apologies in advance if my logic isnt great. New to stacking Normally buy silver bullion and sovereigns but this coin looks to be a collectable so not sure what to do
