    I managed to pick up some mixed 1oz silver coins from Suissegold.com for £15.55 each including shipping Andy VAT. They had great service and fast shipping as well.

    That is a pretty spiteful position is it not? I hope for the same thing as you but more for the advantages that hard brexit will bring in the long run rather than the short term pain which in my view is entirely necessary, but obviously not for the same reasons you do.

    There were many reasons that led me to vote for Brexit,  the question of sovereignty and decision making by people I can at least vote out if they get it wrong rather than unelected beurocrats I can't, the contributions where we pay them and they give us back part of it and tell us how to spend it.  The continual expansion of the EU was another concern, just how many piss poor countries does it intend to include, at the time there was talk of Turkey joining (the failed US coup put paid to that at least and now they have completely swung East instead), Asia MInor and Africa is not where I want the EU to head.  Also not once has a receiver country ever progressed to becoming a contributor country, if the EU was indeed as good as it is continually being made out to be surely at least one country could have managed it by now.  
    It was not until years later that we become aware that we made the smart move, looking back not signing up to the Euro turned out to be the smart move, not signing up to Shenghen turned out to be the smart move and it's the same with leaving the EU, there will be short term pain but in years to come it's going to turn out to be the smart move.

    Could be done... looks like 1 seller in the UK has cornered the market at £5.15 delivered so they're making £3.15 taking into account postage/fees
    That is a lot of effort though packaging lots of different single parcels.

    Scuzzle got a reaction from CosmikDebris in What will happen to gold if we go digital   
    I think the 2008 crisis woke up many countries holding trillions in US Dollar treasuries that they could have all been rendered worthless overnight.  It's only since then the Chinese have gone on a dedicated mission to swap out much of these for hard tangible assets that won't disappear should it happen again.  
    I agree with the OP's theory that we are heading "cashless", true there is an argument to be made that we are 90% of the way there already but at least for now we have the ability to plank some cash aside in case of emergencies.  With a full digital currency your paycheck and any windfalls remain in the bank in digital format and in the event of a banking crisis you can't get it out, great news for the banks as they can introduce steeper and steeper negative interest rates and you can either put up with it or spend it. There is no more bank runs all that will happen in the event of a crisis is your contactless payment and cards will just stop working one morning while the bank decides how much of a haircut to give you to bail them out and they now have access to all your wealth, every last penny.
    This is where gold and silver comes in, when the cashless system is announced there will be a mad rush to get something of worth to hold as assets outside the banking system and if you don't already have any you are going to have to pay and there wont be enough for everyone.  Even if this scenario does not come around then we are stuck with what we have now, endless money printing and the banks buying up everything with it so there is nothing left for the little guy, what happens once they own all the bonds and stocks, are they going to start buying art and classic cars etc.  Again best to get physical assets while you can.

    I thought that latest smack down was highly suspicious as usual. But another thought occurred to me. Has Trump's new anti-corruption executive order put an end to
    the PM price fixing shenannigans? I would hope so. Any ill-gotten gains received from criminal ventures can be seized under this order.
    PM prices usually drift down at the end of the year but that hasn't happened yet. Hopefully Trump will start draining the swamp
    and go after the Clintons, Soros, Obama?,the PaedoPodestas, certain members of the FBI. It's a long fricking list.

    I think that a cashless society is further off than we might think. Realistically, it is only the western world and the wealthy Asian countries that could go cashless. Cash is still king in Africa, India,Southeast Asia and many of the middle eastern countries. Imagine going to say, Morocco  with only a debit card! You wouldn't get far!

    Bitcoin is not the currency of the future.  Bitcoin will be killed by the bankers when they are ready to launch their own versions after the crypto beta testers have completed the scalability + security testing.
    Russia + China are the big tech guys yet they are both buying gold as quickly possible.
    A digital Yuan backed by gold is a future possibility.

    My personal theory (and thats all it is) is that the "transition period" must be long enough to still embroil us in the collapse when the plug gets pulled on everything.  The controlled MSM has never let up on the propaganda telling us what a mistake it was to vote for Brexit.  I think money is being printed non stop to keep failing organisations afloat for now because they can't be allowed to bring everything down until the time is right.  I know Deutchebank sent teams to China, the US and Quatar to beg for money and I think they got it, there has been a number of struggling organisations that just will not go under and I there must be cash injections coming from somewhere.
    If there is another 2008 style collapse it's entirely possible that change in circumstances will give the criteria change to consider voting again and the British people will fall for it.

    And that right there is why the EU is doomed to fail.  No rule of law that’s known and predictable, just commands from a group when it suits them.  Also there’s no common values between nations that are so different and a lot of the countries economy’s are far different than others but they’re forced to have the same currency and interest rates.

    Irrespective of the guy not knowing what bitcoin was, tbh i think that was a stupid question by Jeremy Vine to an elected official responsible for the public's money. And if they were to lose money on that or any other volatile investment, the public would be the first people demanding heads to roll, followed by a sarcastic Jeremy Vine then asking what the hell were they thinking.
