  1. **January 2018** Group order from European Mint!

    2017 are the cheapest on the site so I recommend those (I'll be ordering at least one oriental bordered one too)
  2. **January 2018** Group order from European Mint!

    Ok going to send in my shopping list shortly... Quick reminder that if folks want to order 2017 Britannias, if we all order today we can hopefully combine to get the discounted rate
  3. When the Royal Mint Launch New Bullion Range again ?

    I think OP might have been wondering whether RM are working on any new ranges? IMHO the landmarks series is a bit dull, makes pandas look dynamic and exciting
  4. coming dip

    Thanks, I appreciate it. Might stick it out until Saturday, see if it goes any lower
  5. coming dip

    I'm not sure these comparisons are entirely fair, I mean there's been nearly two decades of inflation since the nineties, so the underlying cost of mining/purifying will have risen too
  6. coming dip

    When's the group order deadline again @BackyardBullion
  7. Edward VIII

    Given the extreme rareity of Edward eighth coins this smells pretty suspicious: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F152858265161
  8. Today I Received

    More silver crowns: Lovely seeing the change in design, really bringing out Pistrucci's design
  9. Difficult call, the only constant through this has been volatility, I guess this is why Bitcoin fans say Hodl (hold on for dear life)
  10. 1) The budgeting advice is important. I am now reeling back/working on this. 2) The Royal Mint's Signature gold option offers pretty competetive rates and is a good last-in/first-out stash of value. 3) Canadian’s have a horrible portrait of the Queen… possibly part of a larger disaffection with having her as head of state? 4) Some people are crazy. 5) Most people are not (and in fact pretty lovely) 6) If you ever want to feel poor and humble, convert savings into gold. 7) Relatively stable PM prices can look like terrifying roller-coasters if you follow them daily/weekly. 8) I am definitely not a numismatically minded person (little scratches and links don’t seem to bother me in the slightest) 9) I will never understand the popularity of Pandas (both the coin and the animal)
  11. Storing Collectable Coins

    Generally one of the attractive properties of gold and part of its popularity throughout history is that it is pretty much inert. Unlike silver it takes a lot to degrade gold
  12. Slightly confused

    Can't comment on detail but I'd advise being sceptical. Forgeries are out there, as are misleading, inaccurate or outright false descriptions. High value coins, particularly anything gold, makes them a profitable subject for forgeries
  13. Game of Thrones silver medal by the Royal Mint

    Absolutely, there's tonnes of things they could have done that would be new and appealing. You know, if the mint could be bothered putting time, creativity and resources into this
  14. Game of Thrones silver medal by the Royal Mint

    Yeah, but wasn't that only announced recently? Could be these were already in production? Or they're planning a staggered release of all the houses, culminating next year? Actually, a Bolton medallion might be interesting
  15. Game of Thrones silver medal by the Royal Mint

    Ugh! I thoroughly agree, it reeks of a cheap cash in, no imagination or creativity (identical branding to every other bit of GoT merchandise) and timed to come in the build-up to the last season.
