  1. The mainpoint is that you can judge how successful a society is by how well it is able to look after its weakest members. And with the end of being able to borrow ever increasing amounts of money to prop up the socialist state absolutely needed after two brutal wars, we are now witnessing the end of socialism and free money successive governments can just throw at a problem.
  2. Hang on a minute. Unless actually forced, people make a choice to take drugs. All other points I accept but just rewind that particular one. I too have military experience btw and thank you for your service as with all servicemen and women. Lots of people are close to cars or murderers when they cross the street but they dont die.
  3. http://spikethenews.blogspot.jp/2013/05/savile-papal-knighthood.html Matt Busby, Bobe Hope and Henry Cooper the British boxer included amongst many people given papal honours by the way..... There are folk who deliver food to aids sufferers on this list. You cannot smear all of them because of one (or more, Im not stupid) bad apple and smear the whole organisation.
  4. Further, you fling words like scam around like smarties at a party without backing it up with any evidence. If you have proof, please contact this chap http://www.gazette-news.co.uk/news/15607622.Generous_Colin_raises_55k_for_Help_for_Heroes/
  5. No, I would not and I find it incredulous that you would even entertain this idea after everything you have said.

  7. 2017 Swan PROOF Coin ON SALE NOW!

    I am swerving modern silver semi numismatic coins like the plague.....only exception I made was Phil’s retirement coin as it is an original design from a bygone age and one his son approved of I believe (unverified).
  8. Waiting for mine to arrive to complete every coloured coin in the series (plus the Peter Rabbit gold 1/4oz) from the last two years. I notice you mention you wont be grading them. I understand why as they do look great as they are.....I am umming and arring as to what to do myself......
  9. OK, this is in response to an interesting comment elsewhere on the forum. Which is better ? Or which is worse ? Have at it Personally, I think, like many things it is about timing and personal preference but let's get lots of opinions as in the end, everyone will be right
  10. 2018 Sovereigns?

    I reckon November 20th coin. Liz n Phil got married on that day. Nothing to support my claim other than the fact.
  11. Seems to have been spotty recently.
  12. 2018 Sovereigns?

    This is just for January 2018 https://www.ianvisits.co.uk/anniversaries/index.php?month=1&year=2018&all=yes But dont forget the big one....the 50th anniversary tour of these wonderful madmen.... If ever someone should have a gold sovereign in his waistcoat pocket, it is Ian Anderson.
  13. Today I received.....

    1982 pf70 ultra cameo and a philip (capsule ala krugerrand farce, so this will be getting graded just to keep it safe from harm) Useless rm, what are they thinking....a no screw in lazily sitting cap....on a proof coin....bonkers.
  14. 2017 proof sovereign big price drop

    Oh absolutely. But if you look at the 1989 and prices there and we all know they will do just fine. They already have been.
  15. It's as though NGC was reading this.....email popped up today about a new service https://www.ngccoin.com/resources/counterfeit-detection/
  16. Today I received.....

    Someone had to do it Surely one more wafer thin waaaafer?
  17. Where are all the 2017 1/10 oz gold libertads

    Take a knee champ.
  18. And even more reason to become more personally knowledgeable about PMs....numismatic or bullion...stop being lazy
  19. Not worth it. Tiny market.
  20. Ah yes. But do you also have this one ? 500 mintage and a lot sold as pendants !
  21. Where are all the 2017 1/10 oz gold libertads

    Because they can.....why bother asking....you can draw from last year and you already know that as does numistacker as he has well documented it, so why bother trying to draw numistacker into your web....bad darts. You have made it very clear insinuating that numistacker is pumping for personal profit.
  22. On a more serious note, the fact that the Chinese Government make it legal to make copies will have to change going if they wish to be taken seriously going forward.....at some point, they will have to make the transition from nicking the west’s economy to actually making their own s@*t that people around the world actually trust. Right now, they are a gazillion miles away from that, big time.
  23. Forget little coins worth pennies....https://birdabroad.wordpress.com/2011/07/20/are-you-listening-steve-jobs/ I actually feel sorry for them.
  24. Where are all the 2017 1/10 oz gold libertads

    That is exactly what they are saying, including other “medals” But if they nailed 300 proofs to the mast and lie, they will lose credibility. In the past, they have left people to guess. This time, according to Stovall, they have said 300.
  25. Where are all the 2017 1/10 oz gold libertads

    That is huge numistacker. Well done. If the Mexican Mint screw this up now from here, they will have royally screwed the pooch going forward, even though mintages are still small by comparison.
