I'm curious about the payment mechanism. They show prices in sterling so i it possible to pay in sterling? Or does payment have to be made in Euro?

I've used them and paid by bank transfer in sterling from a UK account.

Payment can be made in Sterling.

I did it as a "bill payment" via online banking from my current account. They send you the necessary details (account no., sort code) via an email. Very straightforward.

They are very good.

Delivery is usually within a few days, but they do have this notice atm

"Due to the high volume of orders to be shipped please note that deliveries might be delayed by several days. Thank you for your understanding."

Shouldn't be a problem though.

They are excellent. Everything is shipped in well wrapped shrink wrapping that does not look expensive. The only bit that may give it away is the weight, so watch the 1kg bars!

Every newish coin I have purchased from them has arrived in mint condition, only exception are old sovereigns. The 1kg silver bars have a few slight scratches but who cares.

+1 although it is worth checking their prices against bairds/hatton garden metals before a purchase.

Also, if you have euros and a european address then you can buy silver vat free.

The ordering service with CID is a lot better. Emails about parcels being shipped, UPS tracking codes etc.

Baird are OK but the whole ordering process seems less transparent when compared to CID.

What is the inventory like at CID at the moment? Bit surprised to read stories like this:

Is it really that bad in Europe and if so:

1) why not buy in the UK?

2) Why hasn't the panic spread here?

3) Does anybody have a handle on what is driving this frenzied buying in Europe? Is it the media over there?

It's picked up a bit from a couple of weeks ago. You now have a reasonable selection of 1 oz coins, before they were very thin on the ground.

Depends on which country. Germany is zero VAT for silver, but France is not.

I bought a 1kg koala from them, only problem I had was it was in an air tite container that allowed the coin to rattle about a bit. So there are a couple of small marks on it, actually thought about complaining but thought it maybe petty.
