    Quick update on the londongoldbullion order. Turns out it’s coming from Europe and they never put the tracking number on for some reason. Been offered a apology and money off next order. @mr-dead
    they said and acknowledged I received terrible customer service and made up for it.

    It is very difficult shipping UK to Europe with insurance. I have always found Fedex service very good but they only insure to a max of $1000 ( £725 ). I recently asked for a quote UK to France using Fedex int economy and they came back with around £60 which i thought was far too expensive for the cover received. Luckily for me i work as a pilot so got a cheap flight and took it myself and had a nice day in Paris

    “An ounce of gold will always buy a good suit” – Old proverb which has remained true from Roman times, through the Tudor era and into the 19th 20th century even to today.

    Couldn't see the "set" designation on the latest video anywhere for the single sovereign....mechanical error....? I knew something was up at the time last December. That is a major pain in the derriere as they are on their way to me even though I raised my suspicions at the time. For those that dont know I live a looooong way from The UK and sending anything out of here is very difficult. I keep the boxes and coas of course so this is a big deal if I ever go to sell the set. No other 2018 3 coin sets have been graded on NGC, just mine. NGC have buggered it up.

    Seriously? What are you trying imply by quoting this article and using such a "fake news" headline?
    Do you want me to pull some facts about the quality medical treatment under the NHS opposed to continental Europe?

    I have some of the platinum lions, and they're my favorite of what's available in the beasts series. The density of the coin is appealing, and it also seems to me that platinum should be worth more than gold.

    augur reacted to vand in Platinum - who's buying?   
    Pt managed to tag $1000 from its low of $880 just over a month earlier.
    I've been trading it on the long side for a lot of the year and have made some small but useful profit, but I think it's time to start reducing my position and waiting for a pullback.
    Personally from a trading perspective I would rather be in Platinum as I think it represents better risk/reward than gold or even silver.
    Overall the Gold/Pt ratio is still very-stretched, and I think that buying on the dips this year will be a profitable strategy.

    In case it's helpful these look very much like a silver penny that I have that came with an informational booklet.  I've pasted photos of the coin and booklet below.  As was said earlier, these are not that valuable in terms of resale, but there is loads of history...

    one of the most ingenious ways of hiding gold I heard was from during WWII
    As the Nazi's plundered their way across Europe, one chap who feared for his family safety, had his gold holdings & coins smelted down and re-cast into massive door hinges
    He mounted them to various doors in his house and painted them black so they matched
    After capture, house looting and time in camp, after the war he returned home safely and found all his gold still in tact all the while whilst hidden in plain site
