    People aren't equal. There can be no equality when people aren't equal. There can be equality under the law and equality of opportunity but that is as far as it should go. Positive discrimination for one is negative discrimination for another. How is it fair for one to be denied a job or a place in college in favour of another, not b/c of merit but b/c they are a particular gender or ethnicity? It isn't fair or moral. It's sexist and racist. There have been many studies on IQ throughout the world which have shown significant average differences between ethnic groups. https://iq-research.info/en/page/average-iq-by-country In the US for example there is discrimination against those of East Asian (Oriental) ethnicity in college places. The Chinese/Japanese have higher scores in IQ tests, averaging about 105, so they get better average scores in the admission criteria. Europeans (Whites) average scores are around 100. US Blacks score around 10 -15 points lower. This hotly disputed and many reasons and excuses are given. The reality that people and groups are biologically different defeats Leftist philosophy. Leftists maintain everyone is the same when clearly they aren't. They enforce affirmative action to favour certain ethnicity whilst denying race. They show favour to compensate for inherently poorer performance whilst at the same time claim equality.

    I am not white but I find these results a bit messed up. I also find that there is a fine line between racism and stupidity. We are all a bit biased - whether its class, gender, age, race, nationality or colour. Fortunately most people can overcome this natural bias - its the ones that cant are a problem. Racism to white people is just as much as an issue as is racism towards other people - I hate the fact that people dont recognise that - the difference is the scale I guess. I also find political correctness is fu**ed up. I am not Christian, but I respect the religion and its holidays, I cant believe how many companies in the Uk arent allowed to call their Christmas party just that - many have changed to call it end of year etc. I have been at the receiving end of racism, but then so have a few of my white friends.

    Are white people an endangered species?

    Google images isn't that hard to manipulate, people on Reddit do it all the time I just searched "idiot" thinking "I bet someone has pushed a picture of Donald Trump to a top spot" and sure enough... lol I'm white, I'm not bothered about skin colour, but I think it's important to preserve culture and history to a certain extent I've heard questions like Why are god and jesus depicted as white Why are Angels always white Why is father christmas white As if that's racist Western culture, originating in Europe is white (all though I appreciate religious stuff is taken from the middle east) If I went to an African or Asian country I wouldn't go "I've had a look at your folklore and deities and I'm a bit concerned to not see any ethnic diversity here.." You expect the race of the myths to reflect race of the original people :| nothing wrong with that

    Calling all seasoned stackers

    For ease of holding it must be gold every time. If you acquire a big stack, for ease of moving it around it has to be gold. For ease of selling without the potential of significant loss of premium paid, it would be gold. If you are concerned about milk spots and tarnishing, it is gold. So why would you ever consider silver? That is a good question. The gains in silver can be significant. The selling price of most gold coins closely tracks the price of gold. With silver there can be very big premiums if you have the right coins. This at the same time creates the potential for big losses if you are forced to sell. Silver is grossly undervalued. Buying a few coins will not break the bank. It is more affordable. Having more coins might seen great but at the same time you have to store them safely. This can become a problem. The reason i have silver is i am certain the price of precious metals will very significantly increase in a price reset. i can see the steps towards that happening right now, so i am happy to hold my silver.

Friday will be the close of grading entries until January unless something crazy happens at the start of December and there is something that needs first releases or early releases designation. If there are any 2018 Sovereigns that need grading with ER or FR then I will be sending them on Saturday to NGC so they need to arrive in the office on Friday to be included.

    I've spent half of my adult life working in other people's' countries. I never felt that I needed any special treatment as a white immigrant minority. I was equal under the law and any natural bias that existed against me was the price I paid for choosing to work abroad. I chose those positions and my employers chose me on a merit basis. I was working for money by selling my services and the deal suited both myself and my employer with both of us knowing it would ultimately be a long term temporary arrangement. When I was no longer of any use to them I had to leave because surprise surprise, many other countries don't give rights to citizenship. Should I complain about racism or discrimination? Should I cry about the unfairness of it all? Heck no! I was employed in someone else's country. In the UK we seem to have lost our minds over the idea that we owe the entire world an equal shake of the dice right here at home with us. We don't. We as a society are responsible for only this little patch of the globe. We should be proud to cherish our own culture and way of life without feeling guilty for it. Contrary to the last two or three decades of hand wringing there really is nothing wrong with being fond of our home and it's people. Regardless of colour or heritage, those who have joined us, embraced our culture and our way of life really are very welcome here. It's a lie that there is any "systemic" racism against minorities. The reverse is demonstrably true with the BBC's official hiring policies. As a well travelled individual I can honestly say that the rest of the world sees the self hatred and guilt in the west as utterly pathetic. My Thai girlfriend was completely bemused by the luxury of our insanity. Her suggestions revolved around dealing with the self haters in a predictably severe manner. The rest of the world really isn't crippled with all of this self doubt and hatred. It's certainly an interesting time to be alive.

    I had always planned for one big prize... But I see no harm in splitting it up into 3 prizes at the moment. Grand prize 100g & 1oz bars 2nd place Baby Ripple Dragon 3rd place Baby Mirror Dragon £350 stretch goal = 4th place prize of another dragon. I hope no-one is upset at this change...it means more chances to win something!

    Silver has not been good to me

    I have charted my average buy price per T oz for my one ounce only bullion coins including shipping etc ( i.e. what I call net landed cost ). Coins include Eagles, Kooks, Maples, Britannias, Canadian Wildlife, Koalas, Libertads. Excluded are Lunars, Roos, Pandas and proofs and coins weighing more than 1 Toz. The date ( year ) is when purchased and not the date marked on the coin. I was surprised to see my 2017 average so high but I have been buying smaller lots and some missing dates for sets etc. so paying extra.

    Today I found in my change........

    In a pub last night and I checked my 50p as the landlord gave me change. He thought I was checking if the change was correct. When I explained that I collect 50ps he told me to hang on, then he produced 3 bags of non standard 50ps. He takes them out of the till and saves them for customers who collect them. All he asks is that you make a contribution at least equivalent to the 50ps you want. Great idea. I found these and stuck a couple of extra quid in the charity box.

Thanks everyone for all the donations so far and keep it going!

    There if a difference between making things fair and equal as they should be and positive discrimination. Most large companies now have quotas in place for female and ethnic minority employees. This basically means that jobs are given out by gender or race rather than the most suitable applicant for the position. That cant be right.

    Today I Received

    Received over the last week - from different sellers: proof Britannias from 2011, 2013 and the much maligned 2017. Wanted to work back from the iconic 2014 design. Must say I love the 2011 almost as much as the 2014. The 2013 is a tough one to get in good condition in that shiny big field - so quite happy with that one. Each one for less than the £85 that the RM sell them for so good bargains can still be found on eBay. Then two nice florins - 1929 and 1931 as I am trying to get all the George V dates. Love the proportions and design of this beautiful old coin.
