    2011 China World Heritage Series - Shaolin Temple PF69 Ultra Cameo. Few scratches on the slab so will have it rehoused sometime in the future. Piked it up because I really like the reverse but I've got a bad eye at the moment so everything is blury

    GENERAL ELECTION

    Well if May does form the next government, we can actually thank Sturgeon. Without the 12 seats in Scotland, we would probably be looking at a Corbyn premiership and it's all down to the SNP's obsession with another indy referendum that's caused their collapse. and Alex Salmond losing his seat to the Cons, how sweet is that? and the only bright spot from last night. Just a shame that t****r Farron managed to scrape through.

    My first Sovereign! Won this 1918-I George V at Heritage Auctions for $300 ($352 w/ buyer's premium). I've been sweating it all week since it posted. There was some early action (starting bid was $150) and then tonight during the live bidding, nothing. I'm stoked to have this to start my George V 1918 set. It'll be on its way to NGC soon.

    Help With U.S. Coins

    Ah, you see! You were using goolge. You need Google! A quick look and I found this on a Dutch website. I think it's just a run of the mill '64 half dollar but with a stamp to commemorate 200 years of Dutch/US relations. I don't know why they chose this year of coin to celebrate that milestone. I don't think it has a mintage of 200. I've seen one for sale for 25 euros. I think the first coin is scrap and the '64, whilst interesting, is not worth much. I advise that you leave them. I can be helpful. How refreshing.

    GENERAL ELECTION

    So here's how I see it. In Scotland Ruth Davidson did a great job for her Party by making the vote up her about the Scottish Independence Referendum. Turnout up, the quiet majority did not miss their chance this time. So Scotland added 12 Conservative MP's and remember Scotland voted against Brexit. Taking into account these 12 you can really see how far back they went. Theresa May isolated herself, upset the pensioners, youngsters, failed to go strong on terrorists for fear of losing votes across the diverse electorate; all to appease the Tory hardliners. Even now in her "Victory" Speech the result is spun to the Max. She cannot take the risk of going to the Country again as Jerry would not miss his chance the next time. I will say here that I am so disappointed in the state of UK politics - they have tried to make mugs of the electorate - I thought Theresa May had the making of another Thatcher. The real dangers here, in my opinion are Boris and David Davis - they are ruthless and do not show any respect to the electorate. What next and how long?

    GENERAL ELECTION

    I will pick up my winnings today, The Conservatives have only themselves to blame, they had the worst manifesto i can remember, 'trust me whats in the box' manifesto . They clearly thought they could get away with anything. May has turned out to be a weak leader. who advised the Tories that all the UKIP vote would go and vote conservative that also was a big mistake!

    GENERAL ELECTION

    Well he's celebrating like he's won but all he's done is do a lot better than we all thought he would. he's still lost an election.Any other Labour leader would be out by now for not winning. It's like calling it a victory because your team only got beat 3-2 instead of 3-1. He has less of a mandate than even Theresa May and it's about time he realised that. From his attitude you would think it's been stolen from him!

    I am new to Silver

    Hi Mac, In my experience I changed my outlook on silver and stacking in general as time went on. This is probably true with a lot of PM investor/stackers. Back in '08, the thought was (for me) that I was protecting myself and my family from a very possible financial collapse. It later turned into ideas that I would make a nice profit over time. Now, I have more realistic ideas I think. But your point about saving money (in silver) instead of spending on some amazon nonsense or whiskey or whatever is excellent. This is my viewpoint these days. Do I think it will appreciate over time, yes. More than other investments? Probably not for generic bullion anyway. But if it interests you (beyond the idea that it might go "to da moon" someday), then it can be a powerful motivator (and fun way) of saving over time. Gold too (get both ;-) As for the conspiracy theories, you'll find them everywhere with PMs. I just take most with a grain of salt, but realize that even if some are mostly true, it doesn't necessarily mean the result will be higher silver or gold prices. But I do believe that if you take the slow and steady approach over a long period of time (decades), then you'll have an impressive collection (and have fun doing it). Note: if you're into flipping coins for short term profit, check out Shadow stack on youtube. For a more numismatic channel, check on Numistacker. You probably found these 2 by now, but thought I'd mention them.

    Thanks @KDave- I took a better pic at an angle - here you see the "I" much better. It was a targeted 1918 I purchase, and yes, I did pay quite a bit more for this one, at auction - @£350. Looking at the graded coins in MS63 or above I reckon I got a reasonable deal, and you will struggle to see these as raw coins in good condition for less than £350. True - if you happen to bag one of these as a "bullion" sovereign for regular bullion price then that would be a rare jewel...

    GENERAL ELECTION

    When the dust has settled and been dusted off a couple of times, she will be eased out for sure and a new tory champion wheeled out in good time for the next general election. As you say, the silver lining is we should have a new government unable to legislate anything extreme or too controversial. They should just concentrate on Brexit and will have to keep the DUP sweet. I'm not sure what the constitutional or traditional procedure would be if she resigned, would that leave the door open for Corbyn to attempt to form a government? Presumably the Cons wouldn't have enough time to elect a new leader before the Queen's speech?

    GENERAL ELECTION

    I'm amazed how close the result was and instead of labiur patting themselves on the back it diesnt look good for labour in the future. strategy wise labour did everything right, the conservatives didn't have a much of manifesto , didn't bribe pensioners, students etc with money. Didn't present there views very well didn't point the holes in labours manifesto in fact didnt do much at all. Oh the performance of the last two months how Labour didn't win with a landside is beyond me.

    I am beginning to think that due to the appalling quality of our politicians and the stupidity of the electorate in general, we might actually be better staying in the EU as we seem incapable of effectively governing ourselves.

    GENERAL ELECTION

    Yep they have played a blinder and May did her best to get this result too. The remain argument has so much ammunition; UKIP decimated = people don't want Brexit (obviously this is not the case, but so very easy to spin) Tory lost expected landslide = people don't want hard Brexit. Labour did well = people want soft Brexit. Now the king makers are soft Brexit DUP - there is absolutely no way we are leaving the EU now. Some excellent politics have been played here. The election was basically a second EU referendum.

    Terrible night for Tories & May given the context of their position. The only saving grace is the figures don't add up at all to allow the hard left to put in their socialist manifesto.

    First gold purchase

    Hi, IMO for your first Gold buy go for a full sovereign if you live in the UK, you can buy a bullion 2017 at a decent price above spot. I would give the QB a miss that's just my opinion! If you really want one of the coins you said then IMO buy a 1/4 brittania proof as close to spot as possible, I think there was one for sale on the forum just check. Then 2nd choice would be any Perth lunar 1/4 oz. please note the monkey is popular ATM as I think it's been pumped on YouTube, so you may want to buy another year! I like the horse.

    lol yes most paths do seem to lead to global monetary collapse in those videos I don't really know anything, I have a feeling silver will go up or at least holds in value over the years but I don't stack it I only really buy gold I like gold not as much as an investment on it's own but because I don't like to keep all my savings in the bank. I also like gold because I can store or transport £10,000 worth very easily, could pop it in my pocket(s) if need be, whereas with silver it would be a hassle I also like to try and buy numismatics that I think will appreciate in time and I have a pretty good track record with it; The 2017 proof sovereign is a good example, £435 bought and sells for £700 or so now If you're interested in pm's for making money in the short term, the best way to do it imo is to learn as much as you can about numismatics and collected coin series and watch out for bargains or new releases you're confident you can flip
