Which Offshore of London (whichoffshore.com)
Which Offshore of London (whichoffshore.com) are just one of the many coin dealers and websites worldwide who commit copyright theft by using our copyright images without our permission.

We invest a great amount of time and energy into creating the best photographic coin images on the internet. It helps to promote our "brand", and many people recognise our photographs because of their high quality and other recognisable characteristics.
When other dealers or pseudo-experts use them to help create their own website, it dilutes our brand identity. It may also help to fool reader that the website they are looking at is one with high professional and aesthetic standards. Often the reality is that they are looking at some cheapo, hacked-out ad farm, written by ignorami.

CGT threat increases demand for gold coins
Financial News June 2010
With a rise in capital gains tax to be announced in the forthcoming emergency budget, people are scrambling to get legal tender bullion coins, as the coins are exempt from CGT.
This increased demand has led to gold dealers struggling to meet the orders, with Britannia coins and gold sovereign now becoming increasingly difficult to source. Esteemed gold dealers the likes of Baird & Co and ATS Bullion have bemoaned the short supply, Baird and Co have had to inform customers that there will be no more gold until August and ATS Bullion, who buy gold from the public, said “In the last couple of weeks, supply has been drying up because people hold on to what they've got in a situation like this.”
There is even less gold coming in from abroad as European investors have been hoarding the precious metal due to uncertainty surrounding sovereign debt in the eurozone, as unlike currency gold offers a much safer investment. Another English gold dealer, Chard, said; “We buy quite a lot of our gold from Europe, and among the Europeans at the moment demand is much higher than it is in the UK. European dealers don't have anything to sell to us at all. We have a backlog of orders at the moment for sovereigns and Krugerrands”.
Back in the UK experts feel that the proposed CGT raise is playing a big role in the collective gold hoarding. With GCT (sic) affecting the sales of shares and property UK investors see the CGT free bullion as a safer form of investing: “We have a lot of people materialising capital gains on existing bullion and moving into gold coins that wouldn't be subject to capital gains, such as sovereigns and Britannias”, said Mr Baird.
It's bad enough Which Offshore using our 2004 proof One Ounce Gold Britannia obverse photograph on their Gold Demand page without our consent, but then then go on to quote our two main (London based) competitors, giving them both some free publicity, and fail to give us a credit or link for the use of our photograph.
Although What Offshore may not be aware, both of these competitors have used our photos without our consent in the past, and Baird still do.
What Offshore also claim to be transparent about their sources, and their About Us page cites "ethics, principles...our integrity and expertise, we strive to earn your trust..."
