    kimchi got a reaction from Mark43 in 2018 silver Emu coin from Perth at LPM with only 30,000 mintage   
    He's got a forum group order with clear instructions, which you've rightfully quoted.
    You are now suggesting there is a carte blanche caveat for the forum group order where he can additionally just do whatever he decides, yes? And not only that, not announce it on the forum beforehand, but only after he's purchased the whole stock for selected individuals.
    Sorry, trust lost here.

    Many thanks @swAgger, that is possibly some reassurance after what has been an otherwise very disappointing order from Goldsilver. My camera is not great - it's a definite cut in the tape. Can the tubes be resealed using the same tape? I was under the impression it was designed not to be reused, but always willing and hoping to learn more
    Glad you spotted the album! I only used it because I could cover up part of the 'R' to make Purple Pain, you have sometimes simply gotta laugh  It's the 25th reissue, remastered by Prince himself. 4 discs for £12, absolutely incredible sound quality and I still haven't got any further than the first bonus track on Disc Two - it's easily as good as anything on the actual album imo. Growing up I always stayed away from Prince due to his cross-dressing etc (sorry @fehk2001) but I saw him in London a couple of times on the residency he did just out of interest, and he was unbelievable, I was instantly converted. The Mozart of our age imho. I have the bootleg of the aftershow he did with Amy Winehouse - very special indeed.

    I've given up on silver collections myself as my OCD makes problems with milkspots, toning etc a nightmare!
    Except for Kooks really, which were my first love, and are good quality, so I always pick up the new releases as soon as possible, any privys I can get at a fair price, and rolls or partial rolls from on here.
    Gold is too expensive for me.
    Tell a lie - I do have one thing I've collected every issue of - the forum bars

    **Quote** I will only be placing orders on the weekends. I will not be able to place orders mid week unless there are extenuating circumstances. This is simply because I am a busy person and organising and keeping track of these orders is difficult. **End Quote**
     
    He did say Extenuating circumstances which means it will be for him to decide. I think he's done a big favour going out of his busy schedule to help some people out. Top job!  @BackyardBullion

    It could be the next Swan. You never know The Swan I heard was meant to be a new series. Would this be part of the series or just a random bird though. That's the main question I have about it.

    41 euro!!! that's ridiculous! After all that's 1 oz silver in bullion grade, it's not even proof quality, neither is rare cause it has been just released... it would be rare when sold out everywhere, but come on... they can't put such price on coin just because been announced with low mintage. 30 000 is actually not that low, they are selling less 10 oz kook's for a year.

    @dixiesilvergirl just joking!  Very interesting coins, thanks!
    I think my most interesting modern coin for some folk might be a Penny Black (world's first stamp) boxed with a 1/25th black pearl finish proof commemorative 24ct gold coin. This one is still a bit of a mystery to me (I believe the boxed set may be as low as 500), and it's so tiny (and my camera so poor) that I probably can't do it any sort of justice, but it's one that fascinates me still!

    it is EXACTLY and TOTALLY be design how we are in this state of affairs.
    Read Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky from 1971.  It is a playbook of what has unfolded
    Read some quotes from it 
    https://www.goodreads.com/work/quotes/1711776-rules-for-radicals-a-pragmatic-primer-for-realistic-radicals
    What is it that in any area of local government, police, fire service, councils, NHS, politicians and people in authority across all of the UK have all been trained by politic charity " Common Purpose "
    Common Purpose (CP) is a Charity, based in Great Britain, which creates ‘Future Leaders’ of society. CP selects individuals and ‘trains’ them to learn how society works, who 'pulls the levers of power' and how CP ‘graduates’ can use this knowledge to lead 'Outside Authority’.
    Children, teenagers and adults have their prejudices removed. Graduates are ‘empowered’ to become ‘Leaders’ and work in ‘partnership’ with other CP graduates. have trained some 30,000 adult graduates in UK and changed the lives of some 80,000 people, including schoolchildren and young people.
    But evidence shows that Common Purpose is rather more than a Charity ‘empowering' people and communities’. In fact, CP is an elitest pro-EU political organisation helping to replace democracy in UK, and worldwide, with CP chosen ‘elite’ leaders. In truth, their hidden networks and political objectives are undermining and destroying our democratic society and are threatening ‘free will’ in adults, teenagers and children. Their work is funded by public money and big business, including international banks.
    It is important for researchers on this site to realise that the majority of Common Purpose 'graduates' are victims, who have little if any understanding of the wider role of Common Purpose within UK society, nor of its connections to higher government and the European Union. Drawn into CP training by a flattering invitation, or selected by their company or organisation, this recruitment is normally carried out by a previously trained CP person - now recruiting for the cause. Candidates are screened and selected (or rejected) by CP Advisory Board members in their area.
    Both candidates and 'trained graduates' will have no real understanding of Common Purpose's wider role to help achieve a political and social paradigm shift in the UK. The real objective, would appear to be to replace our traditional UK democracy with the new regime of the EU superstate.
    By blurring the boundaries between people, professions, public and private sectors, responsibility and accountability, CP encourages graduates to believe that as new selected leaders, CP graduates can work together, outside of the established political and social structures, to achieve this paradigm shift or CHANGE. The so called "Leading Outside Authority". In doing so, the allegiance of the individual becomes 're-framed' on CP colleagues and their NETWORK.
    Using behavioural and experiential learning techniques, the views of graduates can be remoulded to conform to the new Common Purpose. Most will not be aware this has happened, but we are given immediate clues in descriptions by graduates that Common Purpose training is 'life changing', 'disturbing, or 'unsettling'. Trained and operating under the Chatham House rules of secrecy (details of discussion, those present and location are not disclosed), CP graduates come to operate in 'their world' of Common Purpose. 
    The term 'GRADUATE' is used deliberately so as to prevent disclosure of involvement with Common Purpose. As 'MEMBERS' of CP, which is more appropriate, individuals in the public sector would have to declare their interests. So strong is the Common Purpose bond, that some individuals will lie to hide information and documents considered 'dangerous' to the CP cause. People challenging CP colleagues have been victimised and forced out of their positions.
    Common Purpose is linked to a host of other suspect trusts, foundations, think-tanks, quangos and so called charities. DEMOS is a key example. These organisations funnel political and social CHANGE policy through CP, to re-frame graduates. Examples range from promotion of Diversity in every company and organisation, to Curfews for young people.
    Common Purpose promotes the 'empowerment of individuals', except where individuals challenge the activities of CP, and public spending on CP. These people are branded vexatious, extremist, right wing or mentally unsound. Mrs Julia Middleton, the Chief Executive of Common Purpose, praises the work of German bankers. Deutsche Bank is, of course, a major power behind Common Purpose. Mrs Middleton, earning circa £80,000 p.a. from her charity, is also very happy to promote the term 'USEFUL IDIOTS' in her book 'Beyond Authority'
    Supported by a web of organisations, social enterprises, NGOs, charities and others promoting 'leadership' together with empowerment through applied behavioural psychology. The battle for our minds now includes government Nudging, Happiness and Mindfulness delivered in the covert drip drip drip of an anaesthetic.

    You are UK based so ideal for Sovs (though they are spreading in popularity around the world some on here believe - a good thing for us if correct!).
    They are liquid, you can always buy at a relatively small premium, can quickly sell them if you need to without much of a loss (and if the timing's right you will get your premium back anyway). They're recognised and accepted in the UK and abroad (e.g. India) - even on here where buyers are savvy and after the smallest margin gain you will always do 'ok'. They will always sell quickly at the right price. As they're bullion, condition isn't so much of an issue compared to 'collector' coins like the Queen's Beasts (which have done well short term for some but Sovs are proven across hundreds of years - those have just been out for a relatively short while and the future of the series is a bit uncertain, and the premiums seem to me based on condition, which modern Sovs are somewhat immune to).
    Low premium, liquidity, low loss at sale, a long term history, an established worldwide collector base already which seems to be only growing...need I go on?!!
    I can't fill in the history side of things (others here are experts, so I hope they'll chime in - if not just search the forum for 'sovereign') so I just stack bullion where I can. My first Sovs were the bullion 2017s from Atkinson's (a lovely smooth purchase I was very happy with). 2017s have the 200 year anniversary privy mark and I would heartily recommend picking at least one up! I don't much like the 'off (copper)' colour of the modern ones, but pound for pound value I so far haven't seen a better deal in gold myself at that weight.
    I see the Beasts as more of a speculation. 1/4 Krugs don't have that much recognition here. The 1/4 Brits I know nothing about, @Numistacker?
    Tldr; I am a fan of Sovs, and you will be too if you spend much time browsing around here!

    Greetings all. New to stacking and numismatic collecting since November. Began a modest base of Krugerrands and Sovereigns, of which I quickly enjoyed the wealth of history found in the gold sovereign. Mostly focusing on gold with supplement of silver to complement the collection. Looking forward to learning more within the numismatic collections and growing and learning together in this forum.
