Gold coins - buying by mail order

Anyone got any experience of this. I see there's a firm in Blackpool called Chard

who sell gold coins and seem quite reasonable. Anyone used them and are they reliable? I feel a bit hesitant sending off a £1000 cheque to a firm that I've never heard of.

Blimey, I get worried about buying a few DVDs in case they get nicked! Anyway, arent gold coins a terrible investment compared to other ways of buying it?

I have bought silver coins from Chard - very quick service, reliable in my experience.

Looks like 1 ounce coins carry no less than a 5% premium. Not too bad compared to typical bid/ask spread on shares.
