    Shiny savings and great playthings.
  1. Gold dropped in terms of £ sterling too, in the same pattern. So I think gold is just down in general, rather than any currency weakness. Not sure why.
  2. Today I Received

    Late arrival of the 20% voucher, because I negotiated changing the 2018 sov to get their next bullion Veil Head sovereign that comes available. In the same shopping cart, to make full use of the voucher, were various silver things. One was this weirdly toned 5 Shillings. It's all iridescent teal and purple and burgundy in the hand. And my first old Head. After deductions, it cost me £227 total. It's a bit sharper in the hand. My old iPhone doesn't like to gmail me massive pictures. And a bit of bling sterling for under spot too, because why not. Nice voucher haul.
  3. Silver mistakes - yours or others

    I think my mistake was not getting on gold earlier, for the tiny 3% premium plus the tiny storage - while keeping silver for one-of-each collectable enjoyment. But if I can get sterling under spot, i'll still stack it to the rafters.
  4. This topic has been a bit like an episode of Dragon's Den, as their sales numbers are torn to shreds and they admit they didn't take a salary for the first two years. Then everyone says I'm out.
  5. Nice find, Barney. Thanks. This one is supposed to be 47.7 grams, but I presume it's also sterling, looking at all these.
  6. I'm trying to verify the silver content of this hard-to-search Armenian proof coin. It's 25 Dram, 1996, possibly with "silver and 5 other metals" in it, but ostensibly still .925?
  7. Can anyone tell me if this kind of item is hallmarked for sterling along its lip, as this one is, then is the entire thing made up of sterling silver, chain mail mesh and all? Really appreciate any insight from people who know / trade in these. Here's the item description: "Made in .925 Sterling Silver. Fully hallmarked Imported silver marks Approximate size is 14.5cm width 14.5cm height excluding strap. Weight: Approx. 239g
  8. Nice, I have a lot of these circulating low mintages in flips now, with Change Checker card inserts. I wouldn't have thought anyone would grade them any time soon, but it makes sense for some of them. Kew, especially, if you get a legit one. Love that Britannia one. I have many of the rare £1 too, similarly just in carded flips. I might organise them better some day
  9. GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    EDIT: Deal finished Talking of scales in here not too long ago: Amazon has a lightning deal today for these 0.001g ~ 50g set, with calibrate weight. £10 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Milligram-Reloading-Calibration-Tweezers-Weighing/dp/B071GYVQF3/ref=gbps_tit_s-4_8e48_d0a2b475?smid=A3947NYPS0BPEJ&pf_rd_p=c61d204a-5675-4ebb-b264-6195c6948e48&pf_rd_s=slot-4&pf_rd_t=701&pf_rd_i=gb_main&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=M7FMBXVK6N6S70A3YV0T An hour left.

  10. silver krugerrand

    About £27, that's not too bad now. Gradually getting closer to my comfort zone for picking one up.
  11. NK gold coins

    Dad's here, scarper lads! Selling a brass coin will finance their Lego nerf-missile launcher. Presumably the coins are already out of state hands and are now secondary market, being resold and resold. There's no tithe being kicked back to NK. But you could argue that if Oliver's mate shifted all this stock to forum members, then it might create a demand vacuum or precedent for more to be minted and 'accidentally' allowed to leave the DPRK again. So, point taken.
  12. Oh, thanks for that. I missed it. Well then I look forwards to joining a group order from them to see how it goes. Pick up a few 2018's and curios, maybe.
