  1. Novelty Gold Items

    I've not been back to Hong Kong for many years but I love the jewellery and novelty items which you find in all the major jewellers and have plans to pickup some pieces next time I'm back. Came across this and I really really want one. I have no idea on the weight but it is .9999 but not solid through and through. It'll be a shell but if it were a solid block it'll be even more amazing although the price tag would be significantly more. £600
  2. Novelty Gold Items

    Oldie thread but I'm eyeing this up. Big fan of Iron Man. Only 6cm tall which makes it affordable but will carry a hefty premium which is expected for these types of things.
  3. GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    Thought I'd start this thread to allow the posting of ALL deals on gold rather than having multiple new threads My deal today is with Atkinsons who have the 1/10th Isle of Man Angel. I've bought one because I've been after this little guy for ever and ever and they don't come around very often. When you do find them, they're usually proof with a crazy price tag. Only one left though at the time of posting.
  4. Amazon is my go to. I have Prime and 90% of the time I opt for "no rush delivery". This gives me £1 Amazon digital credit which I then use to make purchases on Amazon video for my kids and with the number of purchases I make through Amazon it's a massive saving for me. If I'm looking to buy something I will do three searches; Amazon, eBay and Google. If the price is cheaper from Amazon or eBay I will then see if the seller has their own web store. 90% of the time it'll be either the same price or more expensive since they're not pricing competing so unless it's cheaper I won't bother going through the hassle of filling in my details to checkout when I can just purchase through a threw clicks through eBay or Amazon. When purchasing through Amazon, if the item is stocked and sold by Amazon then they'll generally be the cheapest. I have a large shopping centre as well as two retail parks within a stones throw from the centre at approx 7 miles from my home. 15 mile round trip at 20p a mile costs £3 in fuel as well as 30 mins travel time. Then there's the parking (free in this case) as well as the walking about time so for me it's just far more convenient just to make purchases online. Retailers will either offer free shipping or a nominal charge of £3-£5 and since it's going to cost me that in travel and time I may as well order online.
  5. 'Photo Only Topics' Discussion Thread

    @xthomasx @Alun Moved replies to Photo Discussion Thread.
  6. @Alun I've merged the threads and edited the title a little since they are the same item.
  7. 2 billion sounds a lot but considering it's been in circulation for +15 years and lots would have been lost, destroyed, gone overseas etc and then taking an average from the current population it works out to be just over £30 each (3 notes). I didn't realise it was so soon. I've got 7 in my wallet and I'll have to check with my parents.
  8. Today I Received

    @Pragmatist Merged your thread into "today I received"
  9. 2018 South Korea Silver Tiger Medal

    I don't think I've seen this mentioned here yet. In 2016 and 2017 they released the Tiger in gold only but it looks like they will be releasing a silver version for 2018. No info on when it will be released but here is the link to Gainville. I think it is quite a number of months away yet.

    As per title, it's South Korea.
  11. Silver Notes Hitting the West

    I'm a new collector of silver and gold notes and all of them have come from China. Main sources are the banks, China Post, CGCI and the Nanjing Mint. A few have also come from private companies/mints. The recent Avengers Civil War and Captain America Shield coins from Scottsdale Mint have included a 2g COA made of silver. Apmex currently have a 5g silver note for sale which has come from Lucius Precious Metals in Hong Kong. I have no idea who minted/manufactured them. Whether LPM commissioned them and Apmex are just re-selling them or whether Apmex commissioned them and LPM were the middle man in the supply chain. LPM does have a 1g gold note for sale which Apmex does not. Now it seems that the Royal Canadian Mint are also selling silver notes. These however are not manufactured in house and are being bought in from MDM in Germany. Again, I don't have any info on who has manufactured them. They could be coming from the private Mints in Germany or they could be buying them in from one of the Mints in China. Looks like we'll be seeing more of these notes in the future.

  16. The forum is very unstable for me

    @kimchi old Firefox 43.0.1. Working fine here so most likely an issue with the last few updates.
  17. The forum is very unstable for me

    @kimchi I’m just on mobile safari and working fine here as well as chrome on windows on PC. chrissilver has been tagged so he should be able to look into it. I’ll have a go with Firefox when I get home.

    Your posts are being moderated for the simple reason of you spamming thread topics. You are not being censored. You are more than welcome to discuss any subject you want but the spamming of 8 threads with a single statement contained within each one was completely unnecessary.

The Future - Today is forming the future. OUR TURN - THIS is our turn. the market turn is our turn. TAKE THE LEAD - it is OUR opportunity to take the lead for the market Our Time to take the value of money - is it our time revalue money None of these threads encouraged any form of discussion and were just statements spammed across multiple sections and for this reason your posts will be moderated for the next 24 hours to prevent spamming.

  20. GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    Atkinsons have a few 1/4 gold proof coins https://atkinsonsbullion.com/pre-owned/gold/pre-owned-gold-coins/pre-owned-2015-australian-1-4oz-koala-gold-coin I'm sure the Koala is supposed to be proof. Description seems a little off with a cut and paste. 8% over spot but be careful as they could be "proof design" which is used by Atkinsons for proof coins which have been handled/maked etc. No idea if any come with original boxes but since it's not shown, take it as a no. The other 2 of which one is definitely listed as "proof design" https://atkinsonsbullion.com/pre-owned/gold/pre-owned-gold-coins/pre-owned-2015-australian-birth-of-the-royal-baby https://atkinsonsbullion.com/pre-owned/gold/pre-owned-gold-coins/pre-owned-2015-australian-longest-reigning-monarch

  23. Bottle Cap Shaped Coin

    As title really. We've had egg shaped coins, spherical coins, cylindrical coins & pyramid shaped coins just to name a few. Coming sometime this year will be a bottle cap shaped coin. Link to company producing it. They've been involved with a few licensed themed coins in the past.
  24. Self Assessment Income Tax

    I see my accountant 4 times a year for VAT returns. I dropped off most bits during the summer but there is a statement or 2 which doesn't come through until later in the year. I dropped off final pieces a couple of weeks ago at the same time as the end Dec VAT paper work. I got the owing figure on Monday and paid it yesterday. Now just waiting on the VAT figure. Xmas time is the busiest time for me and perfectly coincides with a VAT quarter and the SA deadline so January is not a nice month.
