    daz reacted to JCRJM in Goldsilver.be laughable company!!   
    A few months ago I placed an order with this company and the email to pay took ages(hours) to comes through so I spent my money elsewhere. As i said months ago. Randomly today getting these messages: 
    Sorry for the poor spelling lol. 
    Never expected this... I also emailed at the time saying for this reason I had cancelled my order :/

    The OP has been temporarily suspended so he will not be replying.  In addition, based on my prior trade dealing with him as well as his trade feedback left by others and also his response (or lack of rather) in another dealing, he will no longer be participating in the classifieds section.

    Today I received a French lunar horse to replace the previous one I somehow mislaid. Bought the display box from eBay along with the square capsules as I can't find a custom built box for this series.
    This is a mix of BU & proof as I initially thought there were two types running alongside each other but a couple of sellers from Europe told me this is how the series was released.

    I received my order from France Mint (Monnaie de Paris) today. The face value silver coins are "normal" but I would like to share this heavy medal (350 grams, 85% copper + 15% zinc). Using a one-euro coin as scale reference of this 75mm medal. It depicts the grand Forbidden City Palace of Beijing, with a modern touch of bicycles and rickshaw on the reverse side.

    daz got a reaction from Markh in PVC/flimsy plastic envelope   
    When my old man gave me his collection a couple of years ago they had all been kept up the loft for 40 odd years in pvc flips and there was no damage to any of the silver coins.
    A couple of the bronze and copper had gone a bit green and were stuck in the flip but nothing major and no idea if this was down to the pvc or other atmospheric conditions.

    daz reacted to Jester in Britannia 2017 release date?   
    It's what the RM is counting on...FOMO disease..Fear Of Missing Out.  Public Service Announcement: The easiest way to overcome this crippling disease is to focus on the other coins you know you want to pursue/acquire and if you pick these up on the off-chance that maybe they're moderately successful someday, then you just cut into your ability to pick up those solid performer coins (**cough** older Sovereigns **cough**) you had your eye on.
    IMO, the mintages are low enough to sell out over time but this certainly wasn't crashing the RMs servers nor were people being put into a queue.  The real question is what will the coins do once they're sold out.  As @Kman mentioned earlier today, many recent Proof Brits (certainly not the 2014) can be had near their original asking price.  Still a pass for me no matter how many dealers or collectors say they're warming up to the design.

    While still trying to make sense of this Salvador Dali-esque lemon, it's kinda sad because when I first went to the RMs website this morning, the bare-shouldered woman in the long flowing gown standing on the rocky, storm-torn shore looks hauntingly beautiful and that itself could have made an interesting coin. What a stark contrast once you click "Shop Now".

    daz reacted to 4Nines7Hills in Electric Cars vs Petrol Cars   
    i tend to agree @Jimmock but the car industry and government don't seem to addressing the issue of power for charging electric cars as    a large percentage of the population e.g people who live in flats terrace house  essentially  anyone who has to park ok the street. Won't have any.
     
    A 400 mile range and 30 -45 minute quick charge for the occasional long journey  is fine,  for some  but if you  are forced to allows charge away grim home it impractical 3-5mins to fill a petrol diesel car versus 30-45 minutes to charge.
     the likelihood of batteries charging six  quicker in the next fifteen years  is minimal.
     so that means we need six times as many charger as petrol pumps 
     the likelihood of having chargers in ever petrol station shopping centre , place of work is miminal it's taking longer than that to build a crappy train infrastructure at £400 million a mile .
