    Not only that if you got less than a MS/PF 70 for a relatively unknown coin/ round with very little collector following, the coin would in general make less than the raw coin if you needed to sell.
    I have seen some cracking bargains on ebay for silver MS/ PF 69 coins(at auction) which have made well less than the raw equivalent, grading is a mine field you have to choose very carefully what you grade or buy graded or you will build an instant loss into your collection.
    I'm only talking about modern silver coins as I have no real knowledge re modern or older gold coins.

    Back from NGC thanks again to @Numistacker, very pleased with the QB Lions obviously (more luck than skill), and as for the $1 1849, well that is the perils of pre-33 grading I suppose! 
    Thanks again Numi.

    I was out this morning but the Postman was kind enough to drop it off at my parents. Saves me a trip to pick up the parcel from the awkwardly located sorting office.

    From Atkinsons lucky dip I got a Scottsdale reserve. Both bars are sealed so that's a bonus.

    I was only guessing the price of the proof considering what the bullion is priced at. Another mint with quality issues, bet they wish they hadn't struck so many now

    @Vacendak Yep I get the irony, the 1oz gold Krug is probably the best known gold 1 ozer in the world & as it is easily recognised the world over, it is easily traded & sold close to spot.
    SAMint are obviously trying to do the same as other world mints & milk the collectors but the price they are/were pitching a 1 million run of bullion coins is going to backfire badly IMHO.

    From the off EMK have had it listed for 59 euros, which is ridiculous for a bullion coin with a mintage of 1 million coins, you do get a cert though LOL.

    This coin has all the makings of a sleeper.  High issue price and low demand for it = will result in a low actual mintage. 
    If you try to put the set together you will still need to get it = low mintage + high demand later on will result in higher prices in the future.  Same thing happened to 2009 high relief us $20 dollar gold piece.  That carries a huge premium over spot and they made 100,000 of them. Initially coin sold poorly at the time.
    We will see-

    Personally I'd prefer a 2oz proof coin exactly the same as the 2oz BU but obviously without the background hatching which I hate.
     It is especially awful on the obverse. Shiny proof is best.
    I like the 1 oz proof except the lettering is too large and too spread, there needs to be more words to reduce the size.
    Having said all that, the proof is starting to grow on me.

    I will be getting the 1oz silver proof 100%, might order it tonight
    Was planning on getting the 1/4 proof gold proof, will have to think on that though, probably be swayed when you guys post pictures

  24. motorbikez liked a post in a topic by sovereignsteve in UK, Leave the EU?   
    I understood that triggering article 50 was simply that; a unilateral leave announcement. This then gave both parties 2 years to negotiate the terms, if any. Those terms could be simply, no agreement or terms - we're just leaving, bye.
    If at the end of the 2 years, nothing was agreed, then you were simply out.
    The interesting part will come in the event of the Government negotiating terms and then Parliament somehow getting a vote and not agreeing to them. What happens then after the 2 years is up?
