  1. We Don’t Just Sell Coins, We Know Coins With over 50 years in the coin and bullion trade, we really do know our stuff, although we learn new things every day! All of our team are trained in identifying fakes, grading coins and buying and selling all coins, bullion and jewellery. We guarantee that every time you telephone Chard your call will be answered in-house by a trained member of staff - and if you should happen to get a trainee they will let you know and ask if you are happy to be a part of their learning journey. Inform, Educate and Inspire We would love to say that our motto is to "inform, educate and entertain” but unfortunately Lord Reith beat us to it at the BBC about 100 years ago, so our motto is “Inform, Educate and Inspire.” Our websites are about a 50 / 50 split of information pages and product pages. We prefer to give our customers good quality, impartial information and advice, to help them come to the best decision, rather than use pushy hype and salesmanship. In an industry where knowledge is key, we believe it is extremely important to be transparent, and we publish our premiums so they are there for all to see. We are happy to discuss our margins with anyone who asks and will not hide behind prices or complicated formulae. Over 50 Years In The Industry It’s hard to believe that we have now been in business in sunny Blackpool for over 50 years. We have seen precious metal prices fall and rise, VAT added to investment products and then removed, the United Kingdom join and (possibly) leave the EU and we have seen nine prime ministers! From our small beginnings, we have now developed into a multi-million-pound business, employing fifteen members of staff, serving customers all over the world and still working on the same basic principles. 2018 UK Bullion Dealer of the Year For the fourth year in a row, we have been voted the UK Bullion Dealer of the Year. We are proud of our Blackpool roots and are determined to go the extra mile - the Golden Mile! We're adding more items all the time to our website chards.co.uk. If there is something that you are looking for, please don't hesitate to contact us on 01253 343081, email us at [email protected] or send @ChardsCoinandBullionDealer a message.
  2. Hello guys Despite trading i always like to collect. Thats how i started by collecting sovereigns . When i make some extra money , i try to buy coins that i like for my collection. I recently bought this high graded proof set of George V 12 coin. All coins are certified by PCGS in high grades. I hope you like it . The 5 pound is 64+CAM The 2 pound is 66DCAM The sovereign is 65DCAM The half 66DCAM
  3. I received a silver proof Nightingale £2 coin today. It appeared by all appearances to look very much the part. However, when I opened the capsule it was completely empty. Photographic proof attached.
  4. Coming soon to Art in Coins, the exciting new 3-coin series from the Australian Royal Mint. "Inside Australia's Most Dangerous". Each fossil stylized issue is struck in 1 Ounce .999 proof quality silver and features a highly detailed depiction of the Australian Saltwater Crocodile, Tasmanian Devil and the Western Taipan. For those that buy all three coins, we're offering a 10% discount. If you would like to learn more, P/M for a link.
  5. Anyone check out (or possibly have) these new medals from Thailand? I think they're beautiful. There are 60g high relief medals in proof silver (mintage 188), Antique Silver (Mintage 68), Gilded Proof (mintage 66), Brass, and Copper (Mintage 228 each). Apparently there are also gilded uni-face medals of both the Elephant and the Temple that have mintages of 55 each, but I have not seen those editions yet. Would love to know everyone's thoughts!
  6. G'day all, Lootgoblin has come out of the depths once again to ask you fine folks opinions on some fine coins. Do any of you have a favorite Platinum coin? is there one out this year? Or are there any new designs which caught your eye? so far i love the skin textures on: 2019 1 OZ SOUTH AFRICA BIG FIVE ELEPHANT .9995 PLATINUM PROOF COIN - and might even talk myself into buying one before the end of the day.
  7. I'm interested in what the most popular gold proof coins at the moment are. I've already bought this year 2019 proof sovereign is there any popular gold proof coins anyone knows about that have good upside potential?
  8. I'm looking at a great 10oz proof Koala coin on Ebay it's slabbed and Graded NGC PF70 UC, but it has no box and coa. For about the same price i can buy a new one ungraded but with a box and coa from a German coin dealer. Which one would you buy? And why? thanks in advance!
  9. Hi Guys, I have the opportunity to buy a sovereign gold coin, but I have a choice to make. Either the 2019 bullion coin or a Proof Gold Sovereign - Grade B. Also a 2012 Gold Sovereign Diamond Jubilee. All at 10 euros difference in Price. What would the wise in this community advise ?? Thanks a bunch !
  10. I bought these earlier this year, partly because I loved the design and partly because with the new "technique" the RCM developed to avoid milk spots I wasn't as weary to buy their silver coins, but I haven't seen much about these in this or other coin forums. I also, unless I'm not looking properly, haven't seen these on eBay or coin sites. So, any love for the Great White North Coins this year? Are these just not what forum members are usually interested in? The first coin pictured is a special design of the typical bullion Canadian Maple Leaf coin with a big "30" hugging the traditional Maple Leaf Design. Canada did a similar design on the 25th anniversary in 2013, but I didn't purchase that coin. There isn't anything remarkable about this coin, but I like the way the anniversary number looks around the maple leaf, the privy mark serves a purpose (it is for anti-counterfeit measures) so it doesn't bother me, and the fine radial background on obverse and reverse is appealing IMHO. According to the NGC website there are 126 coins of this type graded MS 70 across the label pedigrees (early release, first release, and standard). Mintage of 250,000 according to the websites I've seen. The second is an incuse design reverse proof Maple Leaf coin. This is an odd coin for the RCM to produce. I would love more info on this if others have it. What I know is it has a mintage of 6,500, and according to the NGC census almost 3000 have been graded by them and 93% of them have been PF 70. I don't think this coin is a part of a series, but not sure, and it seems the FDOI (first day of issue) pedigree is the one to have, but there are 1,000 of those kicking around in PF 70 with NGC holders according to the census data. I like this coin better than the first one because of the simplicity and contrast of the reverse proof as well as the edge lettering. These coins also bring up the question of rarity. The first, has hundreds of thousands minted, but just over a hundred in the top grade, while the latter has a low mintage for a coin, especially a commemorative proof, and yet the majority of them are "perfect". So one is a conditional rarity and one is a mintage rarity, but which one is more desirable???
  11. For a good portion of the summer I stopped buying any coins, gold or silver, proof or bullion, because I felt a bit overwhelmed by all the series that are available. There's the Chinese Panda series, the Chinese Lunar series, the Britannia Series (my personal favorite, but not much love from a lot of collectors nowadays), the Great Britain Lunar series, the Perth Lunar series, the Canadian Lunar series, the Rwandan Lunar series (these are quite lovely, but I didn't set aside cash for them or buy any 😥), the Canada Predator series, the Kangaroos, the Kookaburras, the Saltwater Crocodiles, the Birds of Paradise, the Emus, and the Sharks. The Queen's Beasts, the Lion Dollars, and the Bisons. Not to mention the Ukrainian Archangels, the Isle of Man Nobles, the Niue hawksbills, superheroes, and star wars coins. Colorized coins, incuse coins, concave coins, egg shaped coins, coins that are square, coins that have scalloped edges, and privy marks on everything! Just tossing a discussion out to the Forum in general. Does anyone else feel overwhelmed by all of these? Are there forum members that have culled down their collections and eliminated collecting certain series? If so, which series are you avoiding or stopping?
  12. Hi everyone, Phil here, I've been following Numistacker's video for quite a while now, and decided to check out the forum. Recently I chanced upon a 1993 £5 Sovereign Proof for sale at 15% over spot, should I go ahead and pull the trigger?
