    I'm following @Numistacker's lead...per @HyHy, confirmed that the raw coins were sold out at MCM so I picked this beauty up from NY Coin & Bullion for $149 w/ free shipping...Not overly concerned that it won't come with the OGP as the CoAs don't give a specific number for your coin (kinda like the 2017 BU Silver Krugs).

    I was leaning towards voting Conservative in the General election until today. I will go as far to say it is the GREAT TORY BETRAYAL. I am talking about the new proposed Tax on home owners . The TORY DEATH (DIEING) TAX. This is everything that the Conservatives use to be against, a person or a couple work hard all there lives paying all the Taxes and NI that the Government ask for, then they have the rug pulled from under their feet. So the one asset the majority of people in this country have (not the members of this forum) is taxed at a enormous percentage taking in mind the average price of a home in the UK. So why are the Conservatives Taxing the working class and lower middle class ( richer than this you can afford instruments to get around the Tax). They say it is for Social care cost and it is true the money will go towards the costs of social care, though i believe the real reason is more spiteful than that. IMO the real reason for for Death Tax on home owners is to stop the next generation of surfs/PLEBS from buying properties forcing them into high cost renting releasing properties onto the market for their friends to purchase houses/apartments a favorable prices then rent them out back to the next generation who would of been the buyers of the properties returning the Landlords an excellent return on their investment and this will in turn suggest the economy is improving, though in real terms the lives and well being of millions of people will be effected negatively financially and emotionally. I believe anyone who believes the Conservatives have a mind to build more homes than a bear minimum and certainly anyone who thinks the Conservatives have a mind to lower Rents moving forward will be very disappointed. IMO The Conseratives have plans to LOWER HOME OWNERSHIP BY PERCENTAGE OF POPULATION in the middle to long term and raise rents leaving lower income households with less money to spend on food utilities clothes etc. I am a swing voter not a Labour voter. It did not come easy righting this post but I feel i had no choice the Conservatives ring fencing the Death Home Tax to social car have been very spiteful and have back stabbed millions of home owners in this country.

    lol when we first got married, I was a 'victim' of all the tricks of the East. Powdered this and ground that... She forgot that I was raised on roast beef and Guinness and she soon became 'in da club'. Strong swimmers you see Now she's happy with her Korean/Japanese dramas and leaves me to my forum!

    Lets take a look at some more of the ones that have been graded... This is the MS version of the Rooster - It looks almost as good as the Proof. The Small Copper Trigos Medal Nice the way they leave the cut away at the bottom so you can see the serial number. The COA has the serial number and the certificate number too. A 1937 old penny - there are only a very few ever graded better than this one. Almost the top graded MS66 Sovereign from 1925

    I reserve 420 if you get there Was just looking and there are around 1600 members to the forum so far. Maybe 1200 at most are active logging in once a week are more. The fact that you can sell 150 of these with i guess most people buying 1 is quite an achievement. Just goes to show that quality over quantity of members make all the difference.

    2011 a pretty high mintage year - by Libertad proof standards. But at that price you can't go wrong. It's never a bad time to buy a silver proof Libertad ...so long as its in its capsule.

    Sounds perfect mate. If you want I can swap for my "1oz Silver Proof Krugerrand, mint condition, do not open as may reduce value" that I've just posted on ebay. I've attached a pic. Let me know.

    I'm not sure how you can list a coin without a picture of the coin. Regardless of it being a Proof Sovereign or a proof Krug, I'd still want evidence that there's an actual coin in the box, sealing a packet again after taking a coin out is relatively easy for someone who wants to try and pull a fast one

    @Method We tend to buy silver from europe for a lot cheaper. Websites like www.silver-to-go.com www.goldsilver.be or www.europeanmint.com are good places to start. Only viable if you are buying enough to warrant the shipping but it usually works out cheaper. I have started organising group buys from Europe and will be doing it more in the future. A great way to pick up a few coins without big delivery charges and avoiding nasty VAT! DM if you want more info!

    You are a paranoid soul aren't you? What's wrong with people having to contribute to their old age care with wealth accumulated over their lives? The full cost of care for everyone is unaffordable in this day and age by any modern society. We are all living too long and it will get worse (or better if you look at it from the opposite perspective). As to the Tories being the friends of buy-to-let homes owners, who's done the most to make this business unattractive in the last few years?

    Just watching Question Time now; it's utterly depressing. The Tories are relatively reliable on bringing a stable economy, but their attitude to the sick and needy is horrific. Taxing people with dementia and shifting the burden onto their families is beneath contempt. Labour forgot to realise that nationalising the railways, water and energy industries might actually cost money. They would borrow wrecklessly and worsen the economic outlook. Their position on immigration will only worsen the demands on the NHS, as well. The Lib Dems want to overturn democracy, and tax businesses on their turnover and not profit... no more needs be said. What an abolute shower of sh*te. It's a bloody disgrace - we're the most advanced democracy in the world and we don't even have a centre-ground party to represent middle England. I thought I was 100% Conservative, until today. Now I don't even know if I can bring myself to vote for them. But I can't vote Labour, Lib Dem or anyone else... utter bloody rubbish.

    I overpay my mortgage by £150pm & it reduces my term from 22yrs to 15yrs saving around £12,000 in interest alone, but I want to move to a bigger house so the term is most likely going to end up being 22yrs but with a bigger house. I then buy gold with whatever spare I have. The more you pay off your mortgage the better personally as in 5yrs if the rate goes up significantly your LTV will get you a better rate.
