  1. 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
  2. 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.

    Half crowns, 1896 and 4 X 1921... Spot the difference: Grandma is shinier than you:

  5. I'm kinda yes and no on this one. Yes I think blockchain in general has much more potential than bitcoin (and possibly cryptocurrency in general) but also it's become extremely zeitgeisty. I've seen articles advocating blockchain almost as a panacea for pretty much every industry, and in many cases I'm just not convinced that it offers serious benefits over existing technologies/approaches. Put another way, Gartner put it pretty much at the peak of over-inflated expectations on their Hype Cycle last year:

    I guess it depends a lot on condition: coin yearbook 2018 suggests they're not a million miles off if it's in good nick
  7. Interesting, if somewhat one-sided column from the Grauniad: https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2018/jan/15/should-i-invest-bitcoin-dont-mr-money-moustache

    More than I should it's probably worth little more than bullion, but I paid £16 + p&p. I actually have a nicer one for a lower price in the post... Swings and roundabouts
  9. Today I Received

    Extremely well worn George III silver crown:
  10. I'd be wary, I think @BackyardBullion did a video on silver proof coins, long story short, most end up worth little more than bullion value
  11. How do you safely store your stack?

    How about a secondary safe with a small amount in? Maybe a few ounces of silver?
  12. Sovereign resources

    There's a coin guide available at WH Smith's at the moment. Alternatively there's a slightly pulpy "coin yearbook 2018" Ive seen at Wayerstones. Presumably both should be fairly up to date
  13. **January 2018** Group order from European Mint!

    I think plan is to order Britannias all at once next Saturday and hope to get bulk buy discount?
  14. £250 a month...

    I cannot think of any way this could possibly go wrong...
