    Has anyone been on Youtube recently, The Conservatives are trying hard to discredit Corbyn, You can't watch a video with out an add coming on.  
    Myself I am that angry about the Home owners theft Tax that I am going to Vote Labour for the first time since 1997.  I have paid for 2 houses in my working life and I do not see why I should pay a very high tax rate when i worked long hours (extra labour i put in under the promise by the Tories i would be able to leave the house to my children) to pay for the homes, one my ex and the one i live in now both modest.  The Conservatives are being spiteful and I for one am not falling for there srtong and stable bullshit, May has shown her cards she is both weak and wobbly,    and   Spiteful and mean.

    I think its getting daft now, if you want to collect most sets you must be in for £10,000+ a year.  Most are poor value, it is true you will hit the money on some coins but most will be worth bullion is 15 years, if you go onto Ebay and look it is full of sets that were all the rage in the 1970's and early 1980's and are only worth bullion.  Some sets are pumped and will be worth a premium for a few years. IMO if you want to collect sets buy the best sets that are the tried and tested eg Sovereigns etc.
     Also if you like coin collecting and want to do it as a hobby then fine enjoy yourself, but do not get upset if your collection is not worth the premium you expect when you come to sell.  
    Yes Yes I here you saying he is a stacker and is only interested in the price how boring.  Just remember I buy nice coins from around the world old and new, yes they have nicks on, yes they have been circulated , Thats my choice.

    Thanks @morezone
     
    Back on topic (albeit only to announce getting off it for a while) the main political parties have halted campaigning in light of the events. I think I'll give it a rest a while myself.
    Peace, everyone.
  5. Pipers liked a post in a topic by sgcoins in 2017 Netherlands Lion Dollar 1 oz. Silver Proof Coin   
    I did not buy this item, because it is just a medal not a legal tender coin. Also it's not a serie, just one issue(gold and silver). I do not be leave this will be a popular item for collectors within the Netherlands, not many people here in the Netherlands collect medals from the Royal Dutch mint. I think the 2017 200 year anniversary gold ducat will be a much more interesting item, as its still a legal tender coin!!

    I was leaning towards voting Conservative in the General election until today.
     I will go as far to say it is the GREAT TORY BETRAYAL. I am talking about the new proposed Tax on home owners .
      The TORY DEATH (DIEING) TAX.  This is everything that the Conservatives use to be against, a person or a couple work hard all there lives paying all the Taxes and NI that the Government ask for, then they have the rug pulled from under their feet. So the one asset the majority of people in this country have (not the members of this forum) is taxed at a enormous percentage  taking in mind the average price of a home in the UK.
    So why are the Conservatives Taxing the working class and lower middle class ( richer than this you can afford instruments to get around the Tax).  They say it is for Social care cost and it is true the money will go towards the costs of social care, though i believe the real reason is more spiteful than that.  IMO the real reason for for Death Tax on home owners is to stop the next generation of surfs/PLEBS from buying properties forcing them into high cost renting releasing properties onto the market for their friends to purchase houses/apartments a favorable prices then rent them out back to the next generation who would of been the buyers of the properties returning the Landlords an excellent return on their investment and this will in turn suggest the economy is improving, though in real terms the lives and well being of millions of people will be effected  negatively financially and emotionally. I believe anyone who believes the Conservatives have a mind to build more homes than a bear minimum and certainly anyone who thinks the Conservatives have a mind to lower Rents moving forward will be very disappointed.
     IMO The Conseratives have plans to LOWER HOME OWNERSHIP BY PERCENTAGE OF POPULATION  in the middle to long term and raise rents leaving lower income households with less money to spend on food utilities clothes etc.  
    I am a swing voter not a Labour voter.  It did not come easy righting this post but I feel i had no choice the Conservatives ring fencing the Death Home Tax to social car have been very spiteful and have back stabbed millions of home owners in this country.

    12 more bottles of glen alba 22 bought bringing stockpile up to 24 bottles - after explaining to The girlfriend we cant lose on this investment she agreed to buying them. 
    I see these fetching at least £45 each in 3-5 years at auction, even taking into account auction fees and transport £30 clear as a conservative figure is fair. so a bare minimum return of 20% a year over five years but potentially could be a higher return and potentially could be sold earlier making for better figure's.
    PS. it won the 2015 world whisky awards "World’s Best Blended Limited Release" in 2015 beating Johnnie walker blue that retailed at 5x the price, so there should always be demand for it and my estimated return could be very conservative.

    Haha! well I must be honest, I did open a bottle of the Ben bracken 27yr tonight, strictly for research purposes though! 
    I really want to go back and grab whats left of the glen alba 22, but the poor missus would have a fit.

    I know it's not bullion, I bought my brother and his wife for their 25th wedding anniversary a sterling silver table set, source boat nice one pepper pot salt pot mustard pot plus spoons, napkin rings a very nice bonbon dish, all Chester H  marks Victoria. 
    We went round for tea and they were using them, I don't think they know how much they are worth!!  It was certainly the most expensive gravy salt and pepper I have ever had😁😁😁.

    Yes I do think they are worth considering if you like them, I have all the horses apart from the 2oz as I like horses.  Going forward I found that I buy in a random pattern as I am a stacker always looking for value I tend not to buy anything less than 1/4oz having said that I have not bought a 1oz coin from Perth for a while now, the Perth mint certainly makes quality coins IMO.

    My sister is marrying this summer and as a wedding gift I have bought her and the husband a 2017 gold maple in a nice wooden presentation box, which I am having engraved with the names and wedding date on it to mark the occasion. They met in Canada a few years ago so it makes sense to me. To my knowledge they know absolutely nothing about the value of precious metals so it will be amusing to see what they think of it. To them it will appear as a shiny maple leaf coin in a box 
    Its just not the done thing normally. Sovereigns I am told are a tradition for some at christenings and you have added confirmation, but I have never known of it being done in my circle before. Uncle Kdave will be bringing back the tradition when the time comes (depending on where the spot price, it might just be a half sov)

    @RichRock Delivery takes 5 working days, though  for me it took 6 days because of DPD.  They have a UK phone number that you leave a message on they get back in touch, pay by an exchange eg currency fair,  my parcel was very well rapped the best I have seen in many years of buying PMs.  What I especially like is you can vault for Free for Upton 6 months and add to your order so keeping delivery costs down, this enables you to buy dips knowing you only have to pay the exchange company rate. So this means for the regular buyer that's 2 delverys a year but for me who only really buys silver on the second half of the year that's one delvery.  Against is they do not have a large selection, they are not the cheapest though they are very competitive. 
    Hope this helps.

    When the Tories win sterling will rally until the emergency budget, I will be watching very closely over the next few weeks. I have the opinion the City will be looked after first and foremost well before the country.

    Right Guys, I have received my shipment from Europe Silver Bullion.  I have to say I am impressed with them, you can only tell how good a company is when an order does not go well.  The order was sent out using DPD who lost my parcel in Exeter then found it again 12 hours later, I was waiting with my phone to film the delivery as I expected that the parcel had been tampered with, I had nothing to fear the box had been extremely well rapped better than I have every seen before.
    The company itself is based in the Estonia, you can vault your purchases for up to 6 months to combine your purchases for one postage.
    I will be using this company again and i give it a big thumbs up.

    These are bullion only, but they could of offered a small discount on your next purchase.  
    For example they are 20% above spot then they could of offered 6 Euro discount on your next order.

    I have just had a phone call back from them and they have now sent me an email, they said that they had sent me 2 last night but i did not get them.  I think it was down to the fact that my email is a co.uk and they sent it to a .com. Anyway it is now sorted.  
    I will keep everyone informed on how my order goes and how it lands for anyone who is interested.
