  1. Yep. Already in hand Will be opened and checked and sent for grading. The plain edge makes it distinguishable, but best to get it sent off just on the very unlikely possibility of The RM repeating the exact same coin for George's 5th birthday in July - I reckon the chances of them doing that are akin to zero but I do not want to run the risk.

    Saw the irrepressible legends that are Anvil in Tokyo and backstaged it..... Metal on Metal https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=9JgX7UXsj8I
  4. Just edited....they wouldn’t put a 65 on little George’s 5th, would they ? Best to get the coronation ones in to ngc either way, just in case.
  5. Ah, no. Just a list of 2018 releases from The RM.
  6. https://m.thegazette.co.uk/notice/3017240 So, maybe little George gets a plain edge for his 5th ? That seems to be the only other sotd sovereign possibility this year but would The RM do that ? It wouldn’t half create a stink if they did. Mind you, it would not have the 65 on it, so they could. My 65 will be going boxed unopened straight for grading, either way.

  8. For sure. Amazed to find I had to reregister a whole new account. My old one had just disappeared from their site in the last year or two.....incredible ! Good ole RM.....Still wouldn’t let me put more than 5 in the basket though.
  9. I did not log in mind you. Will give it a spin now to see.
  10. Could not add more than 5 just now (unless there is a limit).

    This is why many older Japanese people give any inheritance to their family while they are still alive. The recipient(s) can therefore use it to buy a property etc or some such asset/investment etc, use it for the kids' education, healthcare etc., or fritter it away as they wish.....it avoids the 55% in favour of an 8% consumption tax. Sometimes, grandparents leave the inheritance to the grandchildren as a way of protecting it from bad sons or daughters. My missus got a lump sum over a decade ago and she wisely used it to take a big chunk out of a property and mortgaged the rest to get a tax break each year. That is now all paid off and the property owned outright and being rented out in a very populated area, so the decline of the Japanese population will have zero effect on us in terms of rent streams. What is interesting is that by 2020, over half the population will be over 50, so there is a huge burden on pensions and healthcare coming now. Many older people will be spending the money on old folks' homes/care homes or on fun things to do, if still active. To get this into perspective, several decades ago or less, 4 working Japanese people could carry the burden of 1 pensioner's payments. Now, 1 Japanese working person has to shoulder the burden of 4 pensioners' payments......quite a reversal. And that fact is officially taught to the kids in Social Studies at schools.
