  1. Did a bit of research on numista. Most of the coins the guy has are indeed 28.28g as mentioned by @HighlandTiger, but 3 were actually 31.4g of 925. I've ordered those, will post pics when they arrive. I phoned him and let him know about his mistake, he seemed genuinely surprised, said he had bought them with 3rd party COAs stating the weight as 31.4g from a company called MDM or something, cant quite remember. Anyway hopefully mine will turn up as advertised. 16 quid each, 2 quid delivery, 94g of sterling through my letterbox for 50 quid. Pretty happy. (Hopefully...)
  2. Thanks guys, I checked with the dealer, coins are 31.1g, mostly Carribean/Pacific stuff from the 90's. I think I'll get some.
  3. I have a local coin dealer who has loads of 1oz sterling proofs available for 16 quid each - approx 85% spot. Think I might even be able to beat him down a little if I buy in bulk. I dont like them, but are they worth picking up and keeping, or maybe having them melted into something nice? I dont have any sterling at all, but I know a few members post about flatware and the like, just wondering what the feeling was on sterling coins at this price.
  4. I've really enjoyed reading this thread - an interesting range of opinions on an undoubtedly remarkable coin. I should say that I dont own one, mainly because (relatively) expensive proof silver gives me the fear of waking up to milk spotted bullion one day. If I had one, then I genuinely dont know what I would do. I see the merit in both sides of the stick/twist debate. It will be interesting to see how this all pans out. I will keep watching with interest. If the value collapses, I'll pick one up for 50 quid! - if it keeps on flying then congrats (and even tougher decisions) to t
  5. Welcome, fellow Weegie! Enjoy the forum, there is some great banter on here as well as a wealth of knowledge.
  6. You might collapse the market with all of them...๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  7. That is amazing. Did you see the double holder that Martin at Silvertrader had for showing both sides together? I was sorely tempted but had already picked up the lunars a couple of days before and had to put my sensible hat on.โ˜น
  8. I wouldn't accept that. Probably just send it back and keep the cash. It'll be on secondary market soon enough, you'll likely get a better one at a better price.
  9. Perth lunar s3 ox, 0.5, 1 and 2 oz. Probably a bit marmite - but I like marmite! 6 coins down, 30 to go... might have to think about some nice boxes for them.
  10. No gloves it is then.๐Ÿ˜
  11. It's down to personal choice I suppose - which coins you have and why you have them. But - if you had a choice of 2 coins for the same price would you buy the pristine one or the irreparably damaged one? Most would choose the former as they tend to take care of their collections/investments.
  12. I agree. Generally only a proof or limited edition coin would come with a COA, and that COA would be from the manufacturer, not a 3rd party. The Westminster thing wont add any value - it's a 1998 Britannia, 90,000 made, so it's not uncommon, as long as it didn't cost you silly money then you're fine!๐Ÿ˜€
  13. @Richiesilver would know better than me, I got mine a couple of years ago.
