    Bought a $4000 coin in November from Simon Willis Coins LTD, found it to be a fake and hence returned it Dec 5th, he won't pick it up from the post office and hence it has been put on 'hold' while they keep it for a while and then return to me. Called bay on the phone and they said they will deal with this as I gave them a tracking number. Only spent this much as this is a coin dealer and trusted him, seems I was wrong. Totally different from the description of the coin: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/George-VI-Silver-Crown-1937-Coronation-Frosted-VIP-Proof-Crown-S4079-FDC-PR65Cam/172939907761?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    Wanted Ansell Sovereign

    Anyone have one and wants to sell through here rather than eBay or auction house? PayPal only payment to get coverage for buyer and seller. Let me know. Thanks
  3. I believe this one is hard to get and expensive and one has come up through a good dealer for $19,000AUD. I also looked at the mintage and its a lot higher than the 1923 proof. Can anyone advise why the 1924 should be at a premium? Thanks
  4. being 61 the thought of entering the twilight years has been on my mind and I wanted to ask the forum folks what investment strategy they consider appropriate for the next 10 years. I have been researching the gold coin market prices and have bought the latest Marsh. Prices seem to be up around 10% to 20% a year for proofs. I have been buying British Proof sovereigns and 1923 South Africa, have a couple 1902 long sets, value all told is around $80,000CDN, about 50,000PDS. Its part of a diversification strategy and I was intending to buy the 1887 sovereign and half sovereign proof next which will cost around $10,000. As for the Victorian sovereigns I have a dealer looking out for the 1859 Ansell and I was thinking of the 1820's in high quality slabbed condition. Does anyone have any thoughts to offer on this strategy?

    Coin dealers in the UK

    What is it with these 'experts' in the Uk who seem to think their word is all that matters. Over 30 years of collecting coins and i have had a few nasty surprises from the UK dealers, Mr Simon Willis being the latest one. I know they all deal between themselves and set up price fixing between themselves, shuffle customers like cattle, lie on eBay, don't really have as much knowledge as they wish they had, but do they HAVE to be so nasty??? A few dealers in the US say the same and put it down to arrogance where the UK dealers think they know everything....well folks YA DON'T...
  6. Gosh ain't you a fine example of the nasty arseholes I said populate this forum....negative nelly should be your name......you are certainly no expert in anything except bullshit.

    Sent the coin back Express and he left it in the PO for 2 weeks, then he signed for it then he ignored sending a reply or a refund!!!! Today eBay have covered the refund to my PayPal account. I left eBay negative feedback. Are most UK coin dealers as low as Mr Willis.?
