    Paul got a reaction from airmac in eBay prices vs current Silver price   
    Things are all relative, I have a chunk of change held within silver, and its currently at a loss.  
    But it is only relative when i come to cash it in which i dont intend to do for 20 years plus.  
    Today's paper price, although bothers me slightly and nursing a big loss other things i have bought since 2011 have got my average costs down.  
    Parking my cash into something you cant easily spend works well for me, as i was fond of a gamble in my younger years & frivolous spending.  
    If the cash isn't there, i cant make that casino visit after a night out in town.  
    Precious metals have helped me very well the past 10 years plus and helped me turn from a a spender into a saver.  I have saved far more in the past ten years than i have in the past

    the 10th of April Kookaaburra purchase for £50 is also a great reason not to get into bidding wars on eBay, OR collecting series of coins in a hurry !

    Makes your eyes water looking back - trust me as I hide the figures from my other half.

    Basically a bullion coin like a Kookaburra or Britannia would require you to part with £34 or a bit more including 7% VAT ( all my bulk purchases were in Germany ) at that time before the VAT increase and the introduction of differential VAT we have today.
    That translates to an Atkinsons / Chards / BullionbyPost UK price of around £39 plus shipping.

    In 2010, I was promised by many an internet guru that the price of silver in 10 years time would be comfortably in 3 figures, so we’ve got a cracking couple of years to look forward to!

    Paul reacted to breaktwister in Fractional gold proof Britannias - all graded PF69 or 70   
    I'm not in a rush to sell these but willing to let them go at the right price .  Good opportunity to pick up some of the rarer pieces (2014 coins super low mintage and only available in sets) at a somewhat normal price compared to the listings on ebay from the "premium price" sellers I am sure we all know!  These are all gold proof ultra cameo.
    2013, 2014 and 2015 £1 1/20oz PF70:  £490 for all three.  These make a nice little mini-set so really only want to sell as such but will listen to sensible offers for the individual coins.
    2014 1/10oz PF69: £485 (mintage 613 in sets only)
    2014 1/4oz PF69: £765 (mintage 613 in sets only)
    2014 1/2oz PF70: £985 (mintage 473 in sets only and my fav of the lot, just looks absolutely stunning in hand)
    2005 1/4oz PF69: £325 (nothing special here)
    2005 1/4oz PF70: £385 (only 4 worldwide graded PF70 in the NGC database)
    2013 1/2oz PF69: £595 (mintage 351 in sets only)
    Mintage figures taken from the Royal Mint Discovery>Mintages page.

    Paul got a reaction from JunkBond in GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)   
    If this is your main concern, just buy brand new Royal Mint bullion coins direct from the Royal Mint. 
    No break in the chain of custody or distribution, so as near as possible to get genuine product from mint direct
    It has only been around since year 1100 !  So is not just a new internet start up, it has a few years of history behind it 
    But even saying that, even buying via this process from Mint direct is STILL not total 100% guarantee !

    Not much in the way of real unbiased news at all nowadays, the increasing trend of media companies to be owned by a handful of large oligarchys means all you are getting is propaganda dressed up as news, less proper old school journalism and more political hackery.   Also the advent of 24 hour news channels leads to more of a leaning towards a political soap opera than genuine news as well.

    Most safe deposit boxes have standard insurance of £10,000 and you can buy insurance premium over and above that.  i can insure mine up to £500k in mine if needed
    Collective coverage of all x500+ vaults boxes must have an insurance cover in the £25million plus range
    Have digital PDF scanned copies of all of your gold invoices & bank statements for purchases over the years on a usb stick or stored in a gmail account away from your 
    The Hatton Garden was vault was built way back in the 1930s/1940s i recall
    Modern safe deposit facilities would have far superior security systems, motion sensors etc.
    Like anything dont have all your eggs in one basket, some at home some in safe deposit, some in bullionvault/goldmoey, some in cyrtpos, some cash, some pension, some in bank, some in premium bonds, some in stocks.  one goes tits up and you are covered.

    London gold dealer opens up to the world's most popular cryptocurrency
    ondon bullion dealer Sharps Pixley will allow customers to pay for gold and other precious metals using digital currency bitcoin, the company said on Tuesday.
    Sharps Pixley, which last year opened Britain’s first showroom making gold coins and bars available to private investors in London’s elite district of Mayfair, said it would offer the service though payment processor BitPay.
    Bitcoin is the world’s most popular cryptocurrency and enables individuals to transfer value to each other and pay for goods and services outside the regulated financial system.

    Its dollar value has more than tripled this year but it remains highly volatile.
    “Many investors in Bitcoin would like the option of holding intrinsic value in a traditional safe haven asset like gold; and be able to switch across in a simple and cost effective way,” said Sharps Pixley chief executive Ross Norman. “That avenue is now open to them.”
