    NGC Grading Submissions Open

    Grading Update No news yet from Heritage UK. The results were expected in the next week or so and the coins are expected to start arriving back mid March. Once Heritage have been invoiced by NGC they will invoice me and I will then have the confidence to send bills out to all those who have coins being graded. The most probable time for getting coins back from Heritage will be 17-18th of March or so and then I will get them back to you as soon as I can after that time. Coins that are at NCS are expected to arrive back separately and this could be up to one month after coins that are being normally graded. Next Grading Some coins have already started to arrive for grading and anyone who wants to submit coins for grading should send them now until 3rd of March and again from 17th to 25th March and they are expected to either be sent at that time directly to the USA or if Heritage have a second submission (uncertain) then with Heritage.

    Some 50% silver half crowns and my free 1/2 oz courtesy of @BackyardBullion and the European Mint (lovely coin, and impeccably packed as always): Also, is it just me, or have they somehow given the Queen gills to match the shark?

    Ive had 1 returned in 6 month buying from them and it was taken back no problem. I will say I met the suppliers in Germany this year and they informed me they check every single coin 5oz and Above. I also buy 2/3 silver proofs as back up. They would also check the gold. But Ill take anything back as by law I have to Id prefer a reasonable reason though But quality issues no questions asked . Hope that helps

    Out of interest, where do we stand on faulty products? If there is a quality issue will we be able to return/replace?

    There are f-cking 30,000 of these coins, a collector will only want one if that! All the other coins he buys will have to be sold at some point in the future. With the price of the coin now I would say let the greedy buy them and sit on them I will wait and wait I have lots to collect, I can buy silver bullion which will give me a better return in the long run because in a few years no one will care that much about the emu coin and dealers won't want it either any more than a Britannia.

    Trip out to local coin shop proved fruitful today. I had asked him to put by a 2005 Sovereign for me, but spied these delightful little coins... The Sovereign remains 'put by' until pay day next week. oh, and another of those pesky little 1/2 Dollars turned up on the doormat, I keep telling my wife I don't know where on earth they come from. Thanks to @Roy for some sound pointers and @Numistacker for the informative videos of these little coins. That makes 5 little Brits on the week and it's only Thursday...

    Hello

    Hi guys, What a great forum. I have learnt a lot from you guys already. I've only recently started stacking silver, although I have a small coin collection. Maybe time to trade in some of these as I am finding stacking silver quite addictive. Cheers for now billp

    Free Silver from The European Mint

    Well that was a clickbait title if ever there was one! Today I received a free silver 1/2 oz coin via @BackyardBullion. This was by way of a very generous offer by The European Mint for recording and uploading my unboxing from the recent group order. I know the sound on my previous videos utilising the inbuilt microphone on my iPhone wasn't great, so today I'm trying a new mic which I hope this improves the sound? Today is a double header of an upload day. The first is the aforementioned free 1/2 oz silver coin unboxing. The second is an introduction to what, I hope, will be a weekly series on the hobby of coin collecting and how I got involved and then evolved into PMs. Both are pretty short at just over the three minute mark.

    I agree on the postage it is high comparably and adds a lot the displayed premiums, which are otherwise competitive. For small orders it is cheaper elsewhere. I would be interested to know if orders can be held perhaps and shipped later to keep postage cost down?

    When someone is said to of done something for society they usually do not do it for monetary gain in the primary cause, compared to doing it for one's self when it may have a knock on effect on society this may have good or bad effects on society.

    Hi you may not be aware but I sell Royal Mint products. These are generally cheaper than the mint and exactly the same product. All stock is new unoped untouched etc. I was lucky to be shown a presentation this weekend at The Berlin Coin Show of the upcoming latest release in the beast series. I am under strict guidelines not to show images before I am allowed by my supplier. Saying this In my humble opinion this release is a strong design and fits very well into the series. So I will be able to obtain the Silver Proof all varitions and all the Gold apart from the 1/4 oz. This has been snapped up by someone with much bigger pockets than me. The savings on silver will normally be a few pounds. The Gold savings are far better. Please let me know of your interest and I can get my order prepared. I normally get the stock 1-2 weeks after The Mint Issue. I will need deposits on Gold not Silver. Any questions please ask. Thanks. I will add images as soon as Im permitted.

    1889 1/2 Crown

    I say quite beautiful. Even in that condition that coin goes for a decent premium. they sometimes sell more than the crown of the same year. Toning looks like its window toned OR someone brushed it with liver of sulphur, however I doubt it.

    To the OP, congratulations to you, I know you had to put a lot of work in to build a stack like that. Thank you for what you have done for society, because society has obviously rewarded you for doing something important.

    Index fund vs other investments

    I thought so thanks Roy! Guess I might get me some miracle compounding with my gold after all @MrGeorge Gold is up 11.4% annually in GBP over 15 years as per evidence; https://goldprice.org/ perhaps over 20 years in your example this takes it down some, I don't have access to the data on hand. In your example if instead of stocks I buy gold monthly and achieve the same returns % wise on the capital, we will both have £1.2 million of assets, but if at that point you are going to take your stocks 'yield' as income, then why can't I do the same with gold? 10% is the total return on both assets correct? So if I work out how much yield you will get on stocks, lets just say 5% which is £60,000? then I can sell the equivalent value of gold per year and still maintain my sterling value through continued appreciation on the capital, can I not do that? If the stack increases in value £120,000 per year and I am selling £60,000 how is it any different than you taking a part of your total return as income, conveniently called your 'yield'. Or did I screw that up as well Roy help me out here

    The tone shows up so much better in NGC photos. Here is the reverse of my Crown. Even @Numistacker high quality video it looks too clean and washed out. It's hard to get a feel for the coin except these nice pictures.

    He's got a forum group order with clear instructions, which you've rightfully quoted. You are now suggesting there is a carte blanche caveat for the forum group order where he can additionally just do whatever he decides, yes? And not only that, not announce it on the forum beforehand, but only after he's purchased the whole stock for selected individuals. Sorry, trust lost here.

    I agree with both sides I don't see gold as a great investment either, but as you say @swAgger, it's a lovely place to park some profit or disposable income. Would I 'park' 400oz worth? Nope, but then I don't own a Lamborghini either! It's all relative to your personal situation I guess. If you can, why not?!
