    I started not so long ago and I've got a few different singles in capsules that look quite nice and are a bit of fun. Started with some funny rounds I bought in the states but thankfully I got the kangaroo's which are good value and high quality. They have to be my best purchase bang for buck although my favourite is without doubt the 1kg horse. Soooo soooo shiny. About 6 months ago I got a tube of Queens beasts plus a single to look at and I'm sort of regretting that. The single is in a capsule that fits perfectly and the plan was to get one each year as the series comes out. I got the tube as well as the single with high hopes of having some extras of the early coins in a new series. They might become worth more as the series develops was my thinking. Well, the single in the capsule (which fits it perfectly) now has milk spots on it which is sad so I think that plan is unlikely to work out. I can't see how the royal mint can compete for collectors' attention if they can't produce a product that doesn't retain it's beauty. After reading other stuff about the Canadian mint suffering the same spotting problem I figure it's best to just stick with the Australian stuff. Really well made and the micro A is pretty cool as well.

    @mondy41 - I agree. I have politely raised my concerns before about the chances of the Mint completing this set if they go at one per year. Like many others - I hope her Majesty continues to reign for a few years yet...but isn't there a law about having the current monarch on UK coins!? The logic would be lost if in 5 years the RM are still chugging along with the series that refers back to 1953 with Charles on the coin. Just saying ....hurry up RM. 😉

    sweet. Looks a better grade in your photos but I was right about the edge, there's a file mark from gold testing (probably)

    Silver and all other hard assets will be repriced when the air finally leaves the inflated paper asset bubbles that have built up over the last 40 years, and the public perception for what is and what isn't deemed "safe" is irrevocably altered. Unfortunately nobody can say when that will be - the markets do not work to yours or my preferred timelines. Buy as much as you are comfortable to hold indefinitely - this should be true of any investment.

    You'll hit dips, you'll miss dips. Consistent buying is the best method in my opinion.

    Roy - well, while a fan of the St Gaudens - I do tend to agree with you in that I wouldn't say it's the most beautiful ever gold coin. But I will raise the defence of the Aussie nuggets - as I would argue that the older ones of actual Aussie gold nuggets are special - -and deserve to be in Pile 2. The gold kangaroos can languish in Pile 3, except a few nice designs. Are you talking about the nuggets or the marsupials ? 😊

    I think you're right vand. It's all about the USD and where that heads. Where that leaves us with the price in pounds is anyone's guess. Just a hunch but I feel that the price of PM's is heavily oversold in USD and even quite a bit in pounds. Interestingly, everyone thought that a Trump win would propel PM's higher but after gold's rejection of its breakout to the high side the opposite narrative appears to be in play just now. Maybe over the next few days a short term bounce is on the cards but I expect it to falter again and build a base. I reckon PM's will end up roughly this price in 2-3 months after building a base at this or even slightly higher levels. That's just from the failed breakout to the high side which is a powerful signal. That time frame to build a base would tie in with DT taking office in mid January leaving a potential breakout either up or down from the consolidation that I reckon is now underway. The Trump PM bullish psychology has certainly taken a beating but I did read somewhere that there was a truly enormous sell order inserted on gold after the unexpected result. Apparently so large that it would likely be the actions of a central bank. Who knows whether or not that is true. The previous narrative of Trump being good for PM's is certainly being tested right now. Interesting times.

    Also there are lots of other very well made watches, inc Swiss, Japan, German, Eastern block, that can be picked up for peanuts compared to a Rolex or Patek Phillippe where the quality of workmanship is excellent, thats why the China fakes are sooo good its because the watches are all over priced in the first place.

    Sovs unlike most fractional alternatives have low premium. The other advantage they offer is that you can release funds in smaller amounts. 1oz is a fair amount of money to be tied up in one coin and you can't release a fraction of it. It's all or nothing without destruction.

    I know this is a very old post, but I bit the bullet and bought some tubes of the Queen's Beasts for resale. I have to agree, they are a stunning coin when you have them in your hand.
