  1. I didn't know there was such a thing.
  2. It wasn't ended early, it's a buy it now for 99p and these are sold listings.
  3. Someone got a bargain!!
  4. Three 2016 new pound coins, think I'll keep hold of these.
  5. Feel like getting a few of these, but then again is the higher premium worth paying when they're probably going to milk spot. 12000 mintage isn't low, they'll be around for a while, I think I'll wait to see if there's any quality/milk issues.
  6. Rhodium's on a nice run, currently up to $1015
  7. I feel silver's undervalued, but if it was really as undervalued as some say demand would've outstripped supply along time ago. Today platinum and silver are really in the same ball park, gold's the only real money in today's world as it has no counter party risk.
  8. That's true I have SBSS rounds bought back in 2012/13 that are still in perfect condition, actually I've never heard of one having spots, i believe they were made by the mulligan mint, I mean if they can produce coins that don't spot surely the big government mints can.
  9. Just seen pamp have just released a rhodium bar, maybe that's what's pushed the price up a little recently?
  10. I bought a 1/4oz baird and co bar earlier this year, I did some research at the time and couldn't avoid paying VAT. The spot price was around $560 at the time, we're now at $805 so not bad. I'm hoping for another bull run as the rhodium market is tiny, only 30 tonnes pulled out of the ground on a yearly bases that's just over 1% of gold's production, 80% of that is mined in south Africa so the market is also very fragile. I'd like to get myself some more in the future, looking at the historic chart you never know where the price may end up.
  11. Cinderella man, Underrated film, based on a true story.
  12. My experience with the royal mint is that they don't care about their customers, all they care about is the money and as long as it keeps rolling in they ain't gonna change. If you want change stop giving them your money.
  13. Our good friend Mark Carney's talking about ditching the £50 note, it's all about financial crime, obviously criminals haven't worked out how to use £20's yet. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/06/02/plastic-5-notes-featuring-sir-winston-churchill-that-are-unteara/
  14. 1/4oz rhodium bar
