  1. I thought this would be an interesting follow up to the "today I bought...." thread. When you receive your order you can post a pic in this thread a kind of photo unboxing. Unfortunately I am out of the UK at the moment, but I will be back in a month so then I have a whole year of small silver purchases that I can take a few snaps of and upload here. In the meantime hopefully some other members will be able to upload some pics here soon......
  2. Today I bought 1kg 2014 Perth Mint Lunar Horse & a roll of 20 1oz 2014 Perth Mint Kookaburra coins

  4. Since the Photo Only Threads are for photos only, you may wish to use this topic to discuss other members photo uploads. Might be useful to use the @ mention feature if you wish to grab the attention of another member to this topic. e.g. what was the size of that bar you just uploaded @Bosse68, as @Cornishfarmer wants to know
  5. The few reviews for the app aren't great. But I think this was just caused by a technical glitch in the app which was later fixed.
  6. Stumbled upon this app called chip https://getchip.uk/share/R08I3I It calculates how much you can afford to save, without having an impact on your day-to-day life. Every few days, the chip app automatically transfers small amounts to your savings account. Thought it was a cool thing to share Use the referral code below to get an extra 1% interest. Referall code: R08I3I

  10. Another cool app I found. You select the date you want to save by, how much you want to save, and if you want the amount to be taken out daily, weekly or monthly. It then withdraws this amount automatically from your bank and puts it into the savings account for the thing you are saving for. You can also make groups and save for things. Note this is UK based. Funds are held in a segregated Barclays Bank account. I thought it wasn't pretty cool app apple app: Folio - Save Money Automatically by Folio https://appsto.re/gb/VrVbbb.i

  19. Does anyone have any older somalian elephant coins, and do they have milk spots? Someone told me today that they used to have a lot of 2011 and 2012 somalian elephants but sold them all after the majority of them developed milk spots. I bought a few elephants today before I heard about elephant milk spotting. If my bullion elephants develop milk spots it won't be the end of the world, I only bought a 2013 and 2014, but it will probably persuade me against buying the expensive previous year elephants. Which is a real shame as the designs look fantastic. I sure hope the high relief elephants I bought don't have/develop any milk spots, that wouldn't be nice at all I am wondering if it was just these 2011 and 2012 years that are effected, or do all somalian elephants suffer from milk spotting?
