  1. Just spent 100 bucks on a good meal with good friends. Coins are inanimate. 20/30 bucks either side bothers me not:)
  2. This
  3. https://www.moderncoinmart.com/silver-krugerrand/?&cat=933&sort=pricehl&link=silver_krugerrand_available&linkcat=new-arrivals Humans are fascinating to quote Dr. Spock. There are 58 black holder SP70 first release left and 358 white holder early release left (couldn't get the numbers from GovMint as they just have a generic "limited to 500 for purchase" on anything any everything) The colour black with "first release" seems to appeal psychologically and visually to buyers more than the colour white and "early release" despite there being absolutely no difference whatsoever between the two in terms of grade level or the period in which they were graded (first 30 days). Weird but
  4. Not a chance....record profits last year so Andrew and the hangers on gang can ski at more expensive resorts and take helicopters to the local pub
  5. These just arrived. Surprisingly nice for simple Royal Mint rounds. 15 quid each landed.
  6. Foreseeing a mad rush bullmarket ? RM out of gold to sell or protecting what they have, cutting into other dealers' market share, Brexit ......or just another way to make money ? Who the heck knows ?
  7. 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
  8. Wow sovsteve....you are in a bad mood today If I was your cat, Id be hiding today from getting a kicking......I was quite happy with my new addition to my collection til your comments - really takes the fun out of posting here....oh well. 12 quid.
  9. Believe me, there are dealers out here making off like flint....where do you think I got that 700 quid price from ?
  10. That would be interesting indeed, to see if a shieldback worked in silver. Anyone here fancy a crack at it @GoldBenj and a sojourn at her majesty's pleasure in one of her fine hotels ? The oak and laurels have specific meaning so it is not just aesthetic only., although I do take your point. You like a big old shield front and centre and nothing encircling it. In a couple of decades, they might look great......bit like Ethel as a name....
  11. Indeed, I like it when opinion is divided and there is doubt on official coins such as these and despite them being sold out....and quickly too. I could sell this tomorrow where I am for over 700 quid easily. Would I ? No. I wish to enjoy it as part of a collection.
  12. Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder. Interesting how some love shield backs coat of arms yet not others in the same vein.
  13. These pics seriously do not do the presentation box and quality of the coin justice. The coat of arms side stands out (literally) from the coin in a quite mesmerising fashion. It is. 5ozer so also has quite some presence....and £10.
  14. It has been a while since a modern coin blew my socks of but wow, this one just has 2017 5oz £10 Sapphire silver proof coin...sorry for the poor pics, dark here and the had to share and safely tuck away back in the box before the wee one got her mucky paws on it. Trust me, this coin is stunning. No imperfections so worry not about anything you see in the pics following. Leather plush lid and given some serious box presentation love...A little bit blown away 1700 mintage designed by the fella who designed the round pound. Picture below is the outer outer box it came in not the certificate. Impressive.
  15. Just as well you don't make the rules then
