    If you look at the quality of the gilding it is pretty shabby.
    Compare with a 2009 version.
    i also note the obverse Queen's portrait is gilded. i cannot find a gilded Queen's portrait in the Britannias i have seen.
    Also note the rim is not gilded in the 2009 version as seen below neither is any other 'standard' gilded Brit's i have seen.
    Planchets can get into the wrong minting machine and get the wrong heads and tails; they can get sent out unnoticed, this happens we see mules. i do not know the details of the gilding process but i expect there is a lot more to gilding the face and the rim of a coin than the wrong box of half minted coins getting put through the wrong machine. How would they gild a 1/10oz coin when no 1/10oz was getting gilded.
    i say it is not a mule - this was done outside the Royal Mint
    The coin may still be silver of course.

    i have mentioned in other threads for quite some time now, a new gold and silver blockchain currency. It will be announced over 17th -19th January at the Saint Moritz cryptocurrency conference  https://www.crypto-finance-conference.com/en/
    No need to hypothesise, it is almost upon us. There are $billions lined up to be invested. 
    It is blockchain title of ownership over vaulted gold and silver. Fully backed, fully redeemable and tradeable on the German stock exchange. The coins will be 'worth their weight' in gold or silver (there will be a gold and silver version) because they will simply be a digital title of ownership. They will be money divisible down to a gram of gold. So next week the full details will be out for all to peruse. There is more to these, including an income stream to those who mined them.

    One of the characteristics of money is it is worth the same today as it was last week and will be next week. The current cryptos are all over the place. Today you have enough BTC to buy the shopping but will you have enough by the time you have reached the checkout? This makes them impractical as money at the moment.

    There is a lot of cash in the system. There should be inflation and this is coming out in the cryptos. Physical assets have been suppressed. Agricultural products are in many cases low - when there are an ever growing number of mouths to feed it makes no sense. Some metals are starting to pick up in price. Gold and silver are going to make big moves this year. The new gold and silver cryptos are going to be announced in less than 2 weeks. This is going to vacuum up so much physical it will make the cartel's head spin. It is designed to produce an income stream which will mean the unallocated and allocated gold and silver deposits will be liquidated to move into this new income generating 100% backed fully redeemable gold and silver investment product. This will expose the fact there is no gold in the vaults of these bullion deposits. There never was. The cartel will pull some desperate stunts, they will try to make things difficult, to smear, to generate FUD but they will be on the ropes and then KO'd. The clock is ticking and it is almost midnight. Unless you hold the gold you will be getting a cash settlement like it or not and then comes a price reset and those investors will be left on the side lines. I am 100% sure this is the outcome for 2018. The new currency is upon up but not the one they predicted in The Economist.

    This is not a numismatic collector coin. It is a graded bullion coin. To describe it as a numismatic coin is a wrong description. It should be described as gold bullion and there will be no tax or duty. You have a chance of a 5% VAT if they go ahead and classify it under Antiques, Art & Collectibles (Coins of numismatic interest) with HS commodity code 9705.00.0090.

    From the charts further declines from the current level for the USD portend to some heavy falls. i can see this being a good year for the metals. A weakening USD and the new gold and silver cryptos which will be announced this month are going to supercharge what has been lack luster performances since 2011. i see price retracing to those levels and then beyond.

    Yes the Belt and Road with the lion's share of the gold is what will win the day.
    America is fortunate she has vast natural resources. Trump has been trying to encourage US corporations to repatriate their huge cash reserve to reinvest in America and get China and others to invest and build industry in a tax friendly environment. When the USD collapses the American standard of living will collapse with it. America will have to start rebuilding her industry. She will have to start producing tangible goods and services or starve. America will survive. There is lots of land to feed her people and lots of natural resources. Now consider the position of the United Kingdom. Industry is a shadow of its former self, the land is overcrowded and cannot support the number of people. It does not look good. There will be blood in the streets. 
    We hear a lot about Global Warming. In Canada it has become so ridiculous I see there are criminal investigations into people 'denying' Global Warming and saying the climate is determined by the Sun. Global Warming is a 100% scam. There are changes happening in the Sun. The Sun is becoming less active. It is a natural cycle. As a result more cosmic rays are reaching Earth. These cosmic rays interact with the atmosphere and create more clouds. The Earth cools. We experience Global Cooling, prolonged winters, more rain and crop failures in the traditional growing areas. It depends on how long and how severe the cooling is as to how badly it will effect the Earth's population. This is expected to last decades. The cosmic rays also interact with the Earth's core. This interaction results in more earthquakes and volcanic activity. Volcanic activity cools the Earth. All these events have been seen in previous cooling periods (mini Ice Ages). There is expected to be mass starvation, there always has been before but there have never been 7 billion mouths to feed before.  
    China is buying up huge areas of North African desert which is expected to be a growing area due to more rain. China is building roads apparently to nowhere in the desert. China is building ghost cities in China. The Chinese are not stupid. I expect they are planning to grow food crops in the desert and they plan to move people around China. They are creating with the Russians the Belt and Road land link from the port Vladivostok in the East all the way to Berlin. Germany is turning more to Russia these days.
    You will not hear any of this on the BBC. You will hear about a phony war on terror, non existent Global Warming and identity politics. British people will not be prepared, there will be food riots and mass starvation - hence even politicians like Nigel Farage are promoting the idea of troops on the streets. There is reason to control the people b/c there is trouble up ahead.
    Keep stacking and stock up your larder, for as they say on  Game of Thrones, "Winter is coming".

    There are 6 remotes i can see in the room. i do not know what they all do. One is TV, one is the Firestick, one is the satellite box, one is the DVD. Not sure what the other two are for.
    Way too many buttons on some and no idea or interest in what they do. i just need something to alter the volume, operate the Firestick, switch channels for the bit of telly i watch and most important one to shut the lot off. i expect there will be another remote appearing. i see Amazon and Google have fallen out so i will not be able to watch Youtube on the Firestick - another gizmo required. 
    i remember when these remotes first appeared. Really simple. Volume, on/off and a button to cycle through the channels - which is the extent i use most of these remotes now.

    People aren't equal. There can be no equality when people aren't equal. There can be equality under the law and equality of opportunity but that is as far as it should go. Positive discrimination for one is negative discrimination for another. How is it fair for one to be denied a job or a place in college in favour of another, not b/c of merit but b/c they are a particular gender or ethnicity? It isn't fair or moral. It's sexist and racist.
    There have been many studies on IQ throughout the world which have shown significant average differences between ethnic groups.
    https://iq-research.info/en/page/average-iq-by-country
    In the US for example there is discrimination against those of East Asian (Oriental) ethnicity in college places. The Chinese/Japanese have higher scores in IQ tests, averaging about 105, so they get better average scores in the admission criteria. Europeans (Whites) average scores are around 100. US Blacks score around 10 -15 points lower. This hotly disputed and many reasons and excuses are given. The reality that people and groups are biologically different defeats Leftist philosophy.
    Leftists maintain everyone is the same when clearly they aren't. They enforce affirmative action to favour certain ethnicity whilst denying race.  They show favour to compensate for inherently poorer performance whilst at the same time claim equality.

    The problem is the physical gold must be repaid. The debt has been built up over the year as part of the gold price suppression. They don't have the physical gold but they must hand over 560 tonnes of physical gold. They have to go out and get it. They want to get it as cheaply as possible. If the gold price took off the losses would be huge.
    They do not have physical gold to suppress the gold price these days, they use the paper markets. This is all they can do. They dump 100's of tonnes of paper contracts into the market to send the futures gold price down. This is how they do it along with lies and propaganda saying gold is done for. This does to some extent drop the wholesale physical price, but larger buys of gold are always at a premium. All the time the Chinese, Indian, Russians, Turks..... and buying up physical. There will come a point when the paper and physical markets diverge too much. Where the paper prices become irrelevant to what is going on with real gold. At some point there will be a reset in price. Price will gap up $100's if not $1000's b/c that is the true price the true market will set.

    The reason for this artificial fall in the price of gold is the position of the central bank of central bank, the Bank of International Settlements. i say artificial fall b/c the demand for physical gold is outstripping mined supply. The BIS has to repay a 560 tonnes of swapped/leased/sold obligations by the end of December. They have to come up with cold hard physical metal. Not paper nonsense, really shiny bars and 560 tonnes of them. They are in a spot as physical demand is very high. They are trying to get this gold cheaper and so paper is being hosed into the market to suppress price. This is the reality of what is happening. Everything else you are told is either a lie or told in ignorance. Silver has been trashed in an attempt to get the gold price down. The BIS plays $trillion games on the currency markets where gold and silver are the only real money and they seek to suppress them to keep the illusion the fiat currencies are something more than a confidence trick.
