  1. **April 2018** Group order from European Mint

    1:03pm? Shocking. Unsubbed.
  2. Multitude of Fakes! Beware this Ebay seller!

    I always report suspect or obvious fakes. Ill let you decide which this is in this case :-p
  3. **April 2018** Group order from European Mint

    I think I speak for all of us when I say an unboxing video of the chinese is a must...
  4. **April 2018** Group order from European Mint

    Ill go for 1:37. I like double chocolate chip cookies btw. Also, excited to get involved in the next order from GS.be! (thats a not so subtle push to open the next order :-p )
  5. When Siver goes through the roof!

    No I'm not saying that at all. What I mean is that something that is priced £10 and goes up to £11 tracks inflation if inflation is 10%. But so does something priced £1 that goes to £1.10. They are both tracking inflation equally, but one is cheaper. If the price were not suppressed silver would still track inflation to the same degree relatively, just at a higher nominal price. At least thats my opinion. The GS ratio disparity just confirms the silver price suppression in my opinion. In any case I hold both so Im good.
  6. When Siver goes through the roof!

    Silver and gold certainly track inflation (which is one reason we know we are actually in a deflation right now), and so are a great hedge. But, and heres the real appeal, silver is so obviously undervalued it has enormous upside. So, since it tracks inflation, and since it is also surpressed, the risk/benefit profile of silver is probably the most favourable of anything you can think to invest in. To me, its important to know more than just the fact that silver is a great store of wealth. If you really want to convince the masses, you have to reveal the upside which is almost a certainty, and the downside which is so low as to be negligible.
  7. When Siver goes through the roof!

    If silver goes moonwards, say, close to £100, I intend to sell my bigger pieces first, perhaps by 1kg, 500g and 250g umicore bars. At £100, that should net me a tidy £6000 or so. However, I will hold the majority of my stack back and wait. The issue I see is that a huge spike in PM prices is likely to precede a major reset of the financial system. So that £6000 I just netted might be worth nothing of the sort when push comes to shove. Im stacking for two outcomes. 1) The hunky dory fiat world somehow makes it to my retirement and I have a lovely stack of shiny to use and/or pass down to my family or 2) The system resets and my stack of shiny has material value that I can use to buy houses, land, new stocks etc. In any case, Im confident my stack will be a useful tool for me.
  8. Roll up! Design your own useless privy coin!

    Here's a cheque write any number on it and I will sign it.
  9. Roll up! Design your own useless privy coin!

    Please get onto photshop and make a concept design. If we get enough support we can send a strongly worded letter to the RM!
  10. Roll up! Design your own useless privy coin!

    This is exactly my point. total nonsense. if they insist on a privy coin, then at least be creative! I just thought of another one Id like and definitely buy. The face of the "success kid" meme, hang on....
  11. Roll up! Design your own useless privy coin!

    I feel that that would be extremely limited mintage, by necessity, not design :-D
  12. Roll up! Design your own useless privy coin!

    Wow. I mean I was being deliberately ridiculous. I guess Im not the only one who thinks like this!
  13. In my opinion, privy coins are meaningless at best, and a con at worst. Some of the available privy coins out there make zero sense. Who decided what the privy mark will be and what their reasoning is is beyond me. Tanks and F15s (Yes Im aware its not the plane but its still stupid)? Mathmatical formulae and buildings that are falling over? Animals that bear no link to the coin, country or mint at all, not even on a lunar basis? What? Why? So, if you had your hands on the designer's throat and demanded a privy mark edition of your favourite bullion coins, what would you ask for. (All answers are valid no matter how ridiculous, since ridiculous privy marks make it on to coin in real life anyway!). I'll start. I would design a privy mark in the shape of a privy (an old word for an outdoor toilet). Go.
  14. **April 2018** Group order from European Mint

    Nice job keeping the forum updated mate. Just wanted to ask, all being well, when do ou intend to open the next order up for requests? Im sitting on a basket of 17 oz on GS.be right now and thought I might wait and chuck it on the group order. Cheers
  15. Once upon a time I made a suggestion to Silver Slacker to make his yearly YPS bars interlock in some way. He wanted suggestions to increase the number of "set" of bars he was selling rather than just the one oz selling faster. I suggested he make a pair of bars that fit with each other, like ying and yang symbols (not that but you catch my drift). To my surpirse he wasnt convinced it would work. To me, nothing would irk me more than knowing the bar Im looking at is only half of the picture, and that it is specifically design to fit with another. Imagine having a display box for coins and having that one coin slot you just never fill. Yuck! In doing these sets you have really tapped into something I think alot of people would want BYB. You should think longer term about similar sets, like perhaps a donut shaped bar which would fit a 1 oz (ish) round pour. Catch my drift? Excellent work though, top drawer.
