    1902 3p not sure if it is a Matt proof as it has a nice satin sheen that I can't quite get in the picture.
    Been to SA and found this 1742 1/2p in a flea market. Cost me £8 so can't complain.
    A QB Bull. Thought there was a double stamp at first but it is just so bloody shiny LOL
    A wedge tailed eagle to go with my others.
    Won some SA old silver at the last DNW auction, 1x 6p and 5x 2/5 shillings. Not sure if any are worth grading so thoughts are welcome.
    Lastly a 1/20 gold dog bought in Dubai airport during a transfer. It was bought using my daughters 1st birthday money and every year from now on we will get another with her money so when she becomes 18 she will have a nice pile of the shiny stuff.

    2007Britannia 20th Anniversary Platinum proof set - four coins, from 1 ounce to 1/10th ounce. Pretty nice condition; just really wanted the 1 ounce to go with other Pt 1 ouncers I have , but the others in the set I can put up with as well! 😉
    Question is: to grade or not!?!

    Bought as bullion so pleased to see a proof turn up, no case or COA. Capsule is the RM screw type and has a few marks but the coin looks good upon first inspection

    There's plenty of evidence that 'time in the market' beats 'timing the market'.
    Indeed, the Times did a retrospective study of three (fictional) people putting a fixed amount into the market, buying a FTSE tracker, each year. The first bought at the top of the market, the second bought at the bottom (so got more for their money) and the third just put a little in each month.
    The guy who bought at the bottom significantly out-performed the guy who bought at the tops, as one would expect.
    However - the one who just bought when they could did best of all.
    The reason?
    Dividends. Everyone forgets dividends but, over the long term, they form the majority of the increase value especially if you are buying blue chip / large cap stocks.
    But you get zero dividends on the side lines, waiting for the bottom you will never see until it's passed.
    'The best time to invest in the market is when you can.'
    I still only have about 25% of my investments in stocks - I split them equally between stocks, bonds, hard assets, and cash - but I never try to time the market.

    Today I received ..... this tube of The 2013 S.S. Gairsoppa Silver Britannia Coins were the first in the Royal Mint’s S.S. Gairsoppa Silver Britannia series. Each coin has been carefully struck from actual silver recovered from the infamous S.S. Gairsoppa Shipwreck. The original 1,000 oz silver ingots recovered from the shipwreck have been refined by the Royal Mint and turned into these .999 pure 1/4 oz silver coins. These coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
    Coin Highlights:
    Contains 1/4 oz of .999 pure silver.
    Minted by the Royal Mint in Great Britain.
    Part of the S.S. Gairsoppa series.
    Available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
    The image of Britannia has been associated with the British Isles since she was first minted on a coin in the first century AD during the reign of Roman Emperor Hadrian. Today, Britannia continues to be celebrated as a symbol of Britain’s illustrious history and might.
    Each 2013 1/4 oz S.S. Gairsoppa Silver Britannia struck from S.S. Gairsoppa silver is in brand new condition and is stamped with its year, 2013. Each coin has been minted with 1/4 oz .999 pure silver. Owning this beautiful coin that is stamped with “S.S. Gairsoppa” along its outer edge is, indeed, like owning a genuine piece of British history. The obverse side of every coin showcases a profile view of Elizabeth II. The reverse, of course, reflects the beautiful image of Britannia as she stands along Britain’s shores with her helmet, trident, and shield.
