Just wanted to share these photos
We commissioned a custom silver round through the members of a Facebook Group. They were minted by Geiger Edelmetalle and were delivered last Friday!
A Mintage of 750 that sold out on a pre-sale basis in 6 days.
It is the first of what will be a 4 Round Series called "Mythical Creatures"
The second one will be "Phoenix".....

I thought Farages was awful in the EP today : a prime example of childish public-school-trained nah-nah-nah attitude, exactly like Cameron, Boris and almost all politicians.
None of them are up to the task of being in a working government : their behaviour is always less than average, less than decent.
(There is no cure : politicians will always be from the same stock and the same schools.)

Hi guys I'm standing down as a moderator as of today, as some of you may have noticed I haven't been around as much as usual over the last 3 months or so as all of my main collections are complete apart from the recent Britannia frenzy initiated by HT LOL. I also have other issues to attend to in my private life & feel it is not really fair on Chris & HH if I can't devote enough time here.
So after being a mod from the start of the silver forum I feel it is time for me to move on, it has been a mainly enjoyable experience with most of the members & former members being a decent bunch of guys, long may that continue & best of luck to Chris, HH & everyone here.
I will still look in from time to time & am not disappearing from the forum altogether.

There will be even more buyers at £80 an once. It will be all over the news "silver reaches crazy new highs" that everyone will be rushing out to buy silver because they will all think it is going to the moon.
It will just be smart investors selling to uneducated investors.

I think this puts into perspective that as a species we do not have the gift of predicting the future in our genes. Although we do have mental illnesses, which explains everything, including religion.

175 trillion worth of gold seems unlikely, unless spot goes to the moon.
also from wikipedia:
It has been estimated that all the gold mined by the end of 2011 totalled 171,300 tonnes.At a price of US$1,500 per troy ounce, reached on 12 April 2013, one tonne of gold has a value of approximately US$48.2 million. The total value of all gold ever mined would exceed US$8.2 trillion at that valuation.

Good on him!
People tend to brag about their winnings instead of their losses; If you can, I would ask him with how much cash he started with his trading account. You could then work out how much he actually gained or lossed; Ask him to show you how it works and how what his losses and gains are on a monthly/weekly basis Most trading account offer you to create a Demo account first; So that you can 'test/play' before do any 'real' trading but I can't seem to see that you can create a 'Trail or demo account' on Tradeo. This is a spread betting platform, so would not 'own' the stocks on this platform hence to lower prices on the spreads.
Spread betting is considered as gambling in the US and I believe it's still not allowed in there.
My tip for any investment is Risk Management. (I know fancy words, but I think it's sums it well).
Don't jump into the water with both feet; Do your due diligence/homework first before you splash your cash, test the water first before you dip in, Yes dip in and don't dive in! Because you might be swimming with sharks, jump in pool filled with toxic waters or having a 'golden shower' (You might want to google that one). If you've only put in a little bit of your cash, you are minimizing your losses. If you are not comfortable in loosing your cash, then you either need to get educated on the subject or find something else that you are comfortable with. To me Tradeo; creates a 'herd' mentality and promotes people to be lazy way and not do their own home work; Yes, Tradeo can argue that they 'shares valuable info' which might be true but I have my reservations.
In short: Do your homework/research before you spend your money and don't worry that you miss the boat on something.
Keep us posted on what you find.

one person allegedly made £600 which means someone will have lost £600.
The only people that can guarantee to make a profit from this is the company who runs the website.
As an ex bookie I have seen many a person who thinks they can beat the system and make their fortune be it shares or horses or whatever and 99.999% of them lose money.
I'd stay well away from all forms of betting .

They may be less vulnerable to movements in spot price but with the greatest will in the world if silver doubles in price you won't get double the price you paid for your numi.
You have to be very lucky (or skillful) in choosing a coin that has matched it's increase in value with the increase in spot price over the last month or so.
I prefer to only have to worry about spot price than the vagaries about whether a coin will still be popular in a few years time.
pho liked a post in a topic by HighlandTiger in will 999 silver always tarnish if not in a capsule?
why would you bother wasting money on capsules. These are just over priced silver rounds with zero collectability over the long term.
Believe me, In a year or so they will be worth no more than spot value whether they are pristine or scratched and tarnished.
Chuck them in a box, forget about them and cash em in when silver is orbiting the moon

Just get some slightly bigger ones and chuck these into a "miscellaneous" bag for hypothetical future use. The value of those capsules surely isn't worth stressing out about

This is what I've learned from here to find out how much a particular coin is selling for;
Go to E-bay Click on 'Advanced' next to the search button, to go to the Advanced search page; Type in the coin you want to research; in the case "2014 Panda Silver 1oz" Tick 'Sold listing' and click search. (you can select the "coins" category). Sort the results by recent first to have a look what been sold recently Then Sort by "Highest price" to have an overview what to top price is and lowest (and to ignore the fakes/replica's) Slabbed coins seems to be selling in the £33-38 range Non-slabbed coins seems to be selling in £19-23 range
