    Ah it's okay, I had a fair few PMs saying the same 😂 Appears he's viewed a little like the forum troll lol. I have thick skin so very little bothers me. Thanks though 👍

    I am not sure why you felt the need to talk in the manner you have. I do not know you and you do not know me. You have no idea how my life started and how myself and my brother have worked to get where we are in our respective fields. I have 4 degrees and a masters that I funded myself having left school with drop out GCSEs and started working at 16 on a whopping £2.53 an hour! I have never taken a penny of support from the Government - not a single penny in any benefits - and pay my taxes on time (even through Covid). I have staff I have kept on FULL salaries, set them up at hom

    I know, that is a positive, but all my gold is held in CGT free coins.

    Okay, so once my accountant has worked his magic I will have a few £££s that I can make a purchase with, outside of my usual monthly one. I will not be using the full amount available but say £2-£2.5K that I could dump into something and forget. Silver just is not looking that attractive at the moment and Platinum looks to be lower in historical price currently. I will have to pay VAT on either, so that shouldn't be a factor. I am looking at the B&Co platinum bars from Bleyer or direct as they appear to have a lower premium than the 1oz coins I have seen. What are peop
  6. I can't get a large Cod and chips for a fiver around here (and would have to buy for the wife, son and daughter also). I went to Cromer once, a long time ago (that's over your way I believe) and everything was Crab and chips LOL
  7. Been watching the price this week. Waiting to see if I can grab another 1 Oz Brit for around £1280 lol. I usually don't price watch, when I have the cash I just buy something each month....now I'm trying to save a fiver lol 😂

    UK Dealers

    I typically use Atkinson's for my orders. Never had an issue with them or a delivery. Wouldn't like someone phoning me up trying to sell me more stuff though. It's hard enough resisting the urge as it is lol.
  9. I haven't purchased in a while as the premiums are too high currently, in my opinion. Some deals (even on the forum) are 40-50% above spot price. So you'd need around £30 an ounce spot to break even. I had an email from my dealer for some "low premium" 2 oz coins going for a whopping 55% above spot (including VAT). Excluding VAT price was still 29.76% above spot.
  10. Ah, see I knew I hadn't had enough coffee this morning lol Does this link help: https://www.atsbullion.com/faqs/are-there-any-id-requirements/
  11. I was just going off this section on the above link. When to notify HMRC about investment gold This section has force of law. The first time that you make an exempt supply of investment gold which exceeds £5,000, or when the value of your supplies of exempt investment gold to any one customer is over £10,000 in any 12 month period, you must notify us within 28 days by writing to our Written Enquiries Section But would be good to get confirmation
  12. That's about right IRC. So if you purchase £5,000 in one transaction then I believe they will have to report and ID you. Also £10,000 or more in one year and it's reportable. If you have a wife or partner then you spread purchases between you. So if you are at £9,999 and want to buy more, give the wife the cash, get her to buy it and then she could just give it back to you (no disposal for CGT regardless of coin type as inter spouse transfers are CGT free).

    Double Sovereign

    Yes I figured that lol. Hopefully my dealer gets some in later in the year.

    Double Sovereign

    I had a look at the new 2021 DS on RM yesterday and then headed back over the my dealer's website and realised I could buy two normal new sovereigns for a few £ less than the DS in RM. So if that's still the case when I make my monthly purchase next month, I will just grab the normal ones lol.
  15. If I pay going market rate for a sovereign, then I expect it to weigh what it was supposed to weigh. This is why I typically stick with new coins. I may pay a tad more, but I don't have the hassle and worry (and my OCD lol). If your coin is 10/15% down did you get a 10/15% reduction in price...that is how I would approach it / justify it in my own head. Right now 5 x 2021 Sov's from my dealer cost £1,550 and 5 x second hand cost £1,535. I can live with the difference. I appreciate there may be cheaper options out there but I am happy with my dealer and the above includes postage.
