Wow! The NZ type didn't last which is expected. The other ones are attributed to Tristan da Cunha (meaning the mint most likely pays lower royalties/fees than NZ) but are pretty nice too.

Shipping and packing="flat rate"
what does that mean?
I missed the part about the free shipping

Edit: Never mind, I saw the free shipping and packing notice. Has anyone ever bought from this vendor before?

The NZ coin is still available!

Yeah, looks like the NZ coin was just temporarily "sold out"... At the moment, all three are still showing as available to be purchased. Thought they'd all be gone by now.

I picked up a few coins. We'll see what happens... hopefully no surprises. I imagine it will be a week or so before anything ships.

I have not. I have seen them discussed on thesilverforum. They usually sell overpriced gimmicky coins.

I'll take a chance and buy gimmicky fractional gold for slightly under spot.

Any luck with Hattons of London, anyone? I have nothing other than automated emails confirming my order. (Oddly, their automated messages do not specify what was purchased and what amount was paid.) Calling them is no use: office is always closed... maybe due to the pandemic? I've seen their product sold before and it looked really nice so hopefully this is not a game where you give a company a short-term loan....

Nuffin yet. If they don't deliver I'll just dispute the charge but it's much too early to think about that right now. As a result of your post I just shot them a quick email requesting status.

Did you see my post on the Utah goldbacks I grabbed? I figured what the hell. :)

Goldbacks? No, I don't think I saw the post. I first heard of goldbacks just a few months ago. Really cool product although I know little about them. Was there a "sale" or something?

I received this from them this morning. The typos make me nervous unless that how they spell those words over there:

Edit: Well only one typo now:

Good luck with that. Shipping has been very slow from overseas lately. I had a box of cigars that shipped out of Hungary on June 9th, just landed today.

Understood, small potatoes <$400, so I won't sweat too hard over the extended wait:oriental:

Re: Hattons... I received a similar reply with similar spelling errors. Perhaps the author is Welsh and thus English is a second language? :)

One difference though is that my orders had shipped according to the message I received. However, the goodies are coming from across the pond so yeah, who knows when they'll actually arrive...

Those are really neat. Your posts inspired me to learn more about these Utah and other goldback notes.
They're real gold and are indeed valid currency. AT some point FRNs will be recognized for what they are and these goldbacks will become very valuable in of themselves. At least that's what I think.

I have a couple of the 1 goldback. I really like them. They should last longer than the stripper singles
Yep, I just grabbed more. The 100 pack of singles are sold out, so is the pack of 20 5's.

I would like to know how many they had.
When I bought the 100 pack of singles 2 days ago they showed 8 in stock. They went to zero today. I took the last set of 20 5's because, well, it was the last set :)

I think they're very cool and the solution for bartering with gold

Seems like a mixed message here

We are currently sold out of our 10 oz spot price silver bar promotion. Due to the fact, we have no insight into the Sunshine Minting production schedule, therefore we must turn the promotion off temporarily. Thank you for your business.
For a limited time buy this 10 oz silver bar right at spot price through our online store. Your order will ship for free with full insurance and t
