    Yeah probably wise, little to no unsecured borrowing as possible is best, underwriters dont share the same sovereign passion I suppose if you tried to reason with them

    Well I have now visited.
    Unless you know it is there you would never have any idea - this is a good thing. It is the basement of a shared office block with no mention on the list of companies on the board inside the building which only covers the floors 1-4, some office suites in the building are empty. There was however a flyer on the security guards desk who I had to ask how to get there. Multiple doors with intercoms, like HGM, but they seem much much more robust, like a bank vault, and the place seems to be very well built. Safety deposit boxes vary from 2"x5"x24" (boxAA) at £150 per year upto 33"x16"x24" (boxI) at £3285 per year. Insurance is £4 per £1000 per year. Staff appeared very professional. I saw 3 staff and I was the only 'customer'. I didn't get to see the safety deposit boxes on this occasion.
    Now for the bullion side - this was where the staff were a little uncertain and several people had to try and answer my queries.
    The bullion side is gold only, no silver, platinum, palladium etc. There is no bullion kept on site and it is all ordered when requested. They didn't seem to recognise the names of the common bullion coins other than maybe sovereigns. They couldn't give me values for the premiums as that would be dependent on how much you ordered and didn't seem to have a fixed scale. On further discussion a handful of sovereigns they thought would probably be about 5.5% over spot but didn't seem very sure without actually placing an order. In terms of selling to them, again this is gold only and they will send everything away for testing even for things like sovereigns and the price will be determined at the time of them receiving the test results back which could be several days, price appears to be about 4% below spot at best (this is also subject to the quantity) but again it seems they would need to actually process an order to find out.
    So potentially useful for a safety deposit box, particularly as there is nothing else here in the North which is great, although I think I will carry on picking up sovereigns from the Newcastle Jewellery Company

    It will be interesting to see what their buy and sell premiums are particularly compared to the jewellers around the corner! It would be good if they have a choice of coins all the time.
    Next to the Bigg market is convenient for the station and a more colourful part of town the later it gets in the day😄. It would be surrounded by lots of empty buildings at the moment but the area is undergoing much regeneration with new commercial blocks going up.
    I may be able to get down there on Friday.

    Nice 'one of our own' here have used them in past, Merrionvault I see is their Dublin vault.  
    No reason to think the worst of a comapny, just me being my usual sceptical, wary, mistrusting self  
    Reading further they are locating a 'Newcastle Bullion' in the same storage facility to make over counter purchases
    http://newcastlebullion.co.uk/
    It doesn't look fully set up and live as yet however, but nice to have another option and buying source in Newcastle

    I have a safe deposit box with this company - Don't know much about them personally but they have been around for a few years now.  I believe my cost is €650 per annum/cheaper box options available but they are very small.
    I live 3 hours from there vault but its my only option ATM and have accessed it on Saturday/Sunday with no issue.

    Surprised nobody has mentioned flipping silver and gold.
    If you have no sentimental ties to your stack, if you can make a couple of quid flipping your £20 kook for £25, your stack will increase in size with those couple of bob profits you get here and there selling.

    May i politely ask, what very bad & evil deed had you done to society to warrant such awful draconian punishment as a full Coldplay concert ?

    I don't normally post my purchases but thought I would share this little 1/10 kiwi gold doo-darr I picked up locally in town yesterday as I have not seen one on my travels before or on the forum.  £107 I paid which was fair enough

  22. Paul liked a post in a topic by sixgun in Another terror attack - london   
    i am watching it on the BBC 'news' now. The propaganda arm of the shadow government is in full stream. 
    The BBC have already got interviews with relatives and colleagues in Australia and Canada. It is running like a movie remake.
    It feels like a script. 
    This is David Icke's Problem - Reaction - Solution. The authorities create the problem - 3 events in 3 weeks. 
     
    The BBC right now are saying that these events have focused attention on which leader will keep us safe. [directing people to vote Conservative]. The news article is designed at whipping up fear in the people. The media will be clamouring for more security that the people now demand to keep them safe. No-one will ask me or anyone else about this but nevertheless 'we' are demanding it to protect us from the terrorists. Now the BBC are talking about more counter-terrorism legislation. 
    It is bait and switch. Create a Muslim terrorist boogie man - create incidents - whip up fear and take steps to clamp down on the boogie man the government created in the first place. The measures taken will be vague and before you know it you are in the crosshairs - you are the terrorist. Those hoarding gold and silver will be terrorists. I do not jest about this. This post will be classified as hate speech. Total control of the internet. Free speech as long as you say the right things and no encryption of messages. Cash will be removed as a counter-terrorism move. 
    The people are being played.
