    It was bad, but not too bad if that makes sense. I really fancied it and it looked in good condition. Christmas 2017 may be cancelled however...

    Kind of difficult to assess interest in a gold for silver swap without some idea of how you expect to price your coins.
    It would be simple to swap the spot value of sovereigns for spot values in silver but I assume you value your coins higher than this but by how much  ?

    I salute you for taking the time and effort in helping members to grade their coins.  It is a mammoth task to take in all the different deliveries, sort them all out accordingly, ship them off, receive them back and then to package individual parcels to go back to the members.

    Ive
     
    Its a way of saving for me, i put any spare into gold and when i need the cash i sell it.
     
    The most ive had was just over 17 ounces, alas thats down to 5 now due to new kitchen and holidays payed for.
     
    Still if i hadnt bought gold id probably only have had about 10k. cash, as i would have squandered the rest on cheap booze and expensive women.

    The reasons that pushed gold and silver to their highs of 2011 have not changed at all, they have not gone away, been solved
    Debts are bigger, much bigger Euro is further towards disintegration, Brexit had not even been suggested in 2011, The PIGS of Europe still in the chit, and nothing solved since the 2008  Dutch looking to exit euro, France  looking to exit euro, Greece announcing it may use US $ dollar as currency leave euro, Russia, China, India still buying mega amounts of gold annually Demonising and prodding the Russian bear daily into another world conflict Further steps towards a cashless society Removal of high end Indian currency notes overnight announced Bail in trailed in Cypress bail outs done and now implemented and written into law of most western countries.  The money in your bank just makes you an unsecured creditor, the money is not yours when deposited Negative interest rates weren't heard of in 2011  Real hyper inflation playing out in realtime in Venezulua Personal debt in the UK at the same as 2008 levels, housing market still due a massive correction As Roy said the other day, 9 out of 10 new cars bought on contract hire Look at the state of your local high street, can anyone say the economy is really thriving ?? Bank throwing loans at near zero percent and a trigger happy rug wearing wall building megalomaniac TV star in charge of the nuclear codes Do you want to be at this financial game of musical chairs when the music final stops and you don't have a chair ??
    Just the very fact of holding silver/gold regardless of price gives you an invisible protection you have some cover should the wheels come off this bus any time soon. 
  12. GoldBenj liked a post in a topic by seXes in A few questions about semi-numismatic coins & releases..   
    Numismatic coins are for e.g. Brittish Crown Silver Coin (Legal tender)
    Semi-Numis is for e.g. Australian Lunar II serie (Legal tender, but not meant to be used as such)
    Bullion/Round is for e.g. Silver Shield serie, Zombucks etc.. (No legal tender, just PM)
    My view of it, and if I'm wrong I blame Trump.

    I know of someone who put 150 quid on leicester to be relegated at the start of the season, pays out 66k if they do, received a phone call from betfair yesterday offering a 7k cash out, i believe he laughed at them.
