    Can't argue with the price.

    Too many pies?

    These just arrived. Surprisingly nice for  simple Royal Mint rounds. 15 quid each landed.

    My 1853 gold US Type I Dollar showed up - and I am not disapppinted.  Possibly had a bit of cleaning - but I am optimistic it has has not been removed from jewellery, and I think it's genuine.  Nice clean rim. Certainly will be heading off to Numistacker for the next round of NGC grading.

    No drama. Criticism, if meant well, is to be encouraged otherwise Orwell was right !...and anyway, if you hated that coin, you are really going to hate the next one that walks in the door  Keep the opinions coming steve. They are valued. Im a big boy, I have me big boy pants on

    Looks like a seriously good box but I'm afraid I don't share your regard for the design. Looks like a run-of-the-mill commemorative coin to me although I'm sure in 5oz it will have some presence.

    Roy, that coin's worth a fortune, but you've wrecked it by using it as "jewellery"!

    Yes but a faith school will have the fact in it's name and mission statement. I would doubt there will be any schools called "the faith according to the SNP"

    True, on the face of it, similar design, but just doesn't do it in my eyes. I think it's probably the round "shield" that spoils it and the "laurel" and oak/acorns don't work either.
    Would be interesting to see the exact sov shieldback design on a silver coin and see if it worked
     
    Yeah me too
    Sounds like you need to start a business re-selling RM coins in Japan.

    10% seems a sensible amount for a long term passive investment portfolio, mainly as @Bumble says, as an insurance. However, if you were wanting to be more active and adjust your holdings depending on the values of the different investments, I would suggest more than this in the current climate. Stocks are at all time highs and are overvalued by most metrics, therefore being underweight this asset class is sensible. Bonds are still too expensive, commodities a minefield, property too uncertain, therefore a little more insurance is sensible. At current prices PMs are still good value IMO and would therefore be suitable for a long investment.

    Therein lies the problem and the reason world stock markets etc are making new highs even though everyone knows the economies cannot justify them. There is no safe haven for cash and no safe investment that generates a decent return.
    Too much money in the world as a result of all the QE folly of successive central banks.

    It's not such a far fetched idea, let me mull over it. In the meantime, I've been up to my eyes in gold proofs £1 coins today. I must say, I love my job!

    I guess I might not have phrased it very well. I was more referring to designs that come in to their own in a larger size. Perhaps the question is silly but I reckon their are coins that have that phenomenon. 

    I do like the idea of a proof double sov or proof Brit,

    Most of the continuing rise in debt after Osbourne became chancellor was a hang over from the last of the Brown years and the 2008 crisis. He could hardly just pull the plug could he? These things take time to turn around, and the economy was addicted to debt. Whichever way you look at it, Blair and Brown took over a booming economy and completely ruined it in the 13 years they were in power. If Brown had dealt with the 2008 crisis properly instead of his big-headed, hair-brained "we've saved the world" attitude, we would be in a far better state today.

    Personally think it's an ugly thing. Vastly overpriced: 2/3 of an oz of silver and a few coppers worth of gold plating.

    1/2 oz Britannia proof or double sovereign proof - these proofs look stunning especially if in perfect condition.
