By popular (sort of, well a couple of people were interested) demand the Forum is starting a directory of bullion dealers, to assist members in their searches. It is very much on the basis of 'Buyer Beware' and the Forum is not endorsing any of the dealers who may be listed. Nor will the Forum assist in any disputes between purchaser and seller. It also goes without saying that there will be no inter-member comeback if someone is disappointed with a listed dealer.

So, the idea is that there will be a list, initially in this post but with the possibility of forming a whole new section if the idea takes off. I'll start off with my favourites, and other members can post with their own selection. Listings in future posts will be lifted to form one long list in my initial post so, so avoid it all looking like it has come from me the individual member will be named against their entries.  The format will be: Name; link to website; comments. Obviously, members should only list dealers that they have used and can give a personal view on. If anyone wants to add comments to a listing then please do, and they can be transported to the master list. Please bear in mind laws against defamation!
Anyway, on with the show - here are my initial seven, there are others, but this should be enough to be going on with. I have also now started to add the dealers listed by other members:

Atkinsons Bullion &coins ( listed by Mcb2007)
https://atkinsonsbullion.com/
Similar to Pixley not a massive range but all the usual bullion , bought off them with no issues .

Aurinum (Listed by The Cat's Mother)
https://aurinum.de/Startseite-1
Comments: stocks coins and rounds that aren't otherwise easily available as well as the more usual pieces. Website in German and English and e-newsletter in English. Reliable, but can be slow and not too good at replying to emails. Does pre-orders. Check listing to see whether the coin is capsuled or sent in a flip, it varies.

EMK (Listed by The Cat's Mother)
https://www.emk.com/de-de/
Comments: website is German and English, user can choose. Very wide range of BU and proof coins at competitive prices, and has a pre-order system where customers can buy at a reduced price. There are occasional sales, usually just after I have bought the piece at full price. E-newsletter, super efficient and excellent customer service.

Minted UK (Listed by The Cat's Mother)
https://minted-uk.com
Comments: stocks a wide range from the upper reaches of desirability to more modestly priced proofs. Site is well worth browsing (you almost certainly won't leave empty handed) and customer service is excellent.

Pheli Mint (Listed by mervs68)
https://www.phelimint.com/collections/all-products-1
Comments:  A private mint based in Canada although products are shipped from the U.S. Phelimint was founded by two medics and they released the ‘Wounded Healers’ series with the intent to help raise awareness of PTSD and mental stress injuries in first responders and Health Care professionals. Sells a range from other U.S. Mints including – ‘Reckless Metals ‘, ‘Anonymous Mint, ‘Chautauqua Silver Works’ etc. Good choice of unusual pieces, Speedy delivery and fair postage.

PIK Coins (Listed by The Cat's Mother)
https://pik-coins.com
Comments: Stocks the high-end stuff, competitively priced but still high premium. Great service; reliable and user-friendly. E-updates when new stock arrives. Wish I could afford more of his stock.

Power Coin: (Listed by mervs68)
https://www.powercoin.it/en/
Comments: A vast range of coins available. Constantly offering new issues. Expensive in comparison to other dealers. Efficient company with a small rewards scheme. Postage reasonable.

Sharps Pixely Ltd bullion dealer ( listed by Mcb2007)
https://www.sharpspixley.com/
I have purchased off this company several times without any issues.

Silvertrader (Listed by The Cat's Mother)
https://www.silvertrader.uk
Comments: excellent customer service and very competitive prices. Good stock and all in great condition, sent out in capsules. Free postage, e-newsletter; and money off vouchers. No downside as far as I have seen.

WOPA+ (Listed by The Cat's Mother)
https://www.wopa-plus.com/en/index/index/
Comments: Mainly stamps, but does have coins at reasonable prices. Good selection of the Pressburg Mint products. Works by acting as a one-stop-shop for a number of mints, so you can order a wide selection under one roof (but may have to pay more than one postage charge). E-newsletter seems to be confined to stamps. Good service.

Yorkshire Bullion (Listed by The Cat's Mother)
https://www.yorkshirebullion.co.uk/home.php
Comments: Good range and some US rounds that don't generally get stocked over here. Free postage and very good customer service.

Thank you both. When I get the mystical Round Tuit I will incorporate all your entries into the Master List, and then delete your posts. So don't worry when they vanish. This will go for all future posts too.

Assuming I can muster the technical skills to do so! scratch

You can indeed. I am able to copy and paste (as  @Admin  knows very well). My concern was whether it would work post to post, when the second post was in course of being edited. It strikes me that I will have to do a separate edit for each new listing if I am to get them in alphabetical order, but there may be a possibility of a single copy and paste to get the whole lot in the master list and then split them into single entries as an internal edit. I won't know until I try.

I think I cracked it. The trick is to open the Forum website twice, start to edit the master post, and copy and paste from the subsequent posts shown in the 'duplicate' Forum site. Then delete the posts.

Oh, the power.

That's fine m'dear. Looks a lot better.
I am in due course going to delete all the posts that don't contain new listings (and delete those too when I have updated the master list), so I don't miss anything amidst the correspondence.
