  1. 1/4oz or 1oz coins?

    HI everyone dont know if this has already been asked but I was wondering peoples thoughts. Which do you think is the better option, buying 1/4oz coins such as Queens Beast or Britannia or buying the 1oz coins but obviously less frequently, also if you could explain why you think your option is the better. Thanks for the options that will follow
  2. 2017 Silver Britannia Proof

    Whats everyone's thoughts on the 2017 Britannia design? Most of you have probably already talked about it but I'm new to this so will have missed a lot! I got one last week and think it looks good, but then I've never had such a shiny coin before got it in the box as well so probably spent a bit much. I've only got a couple of coins all from the royal mint and think they're nice, what's your opinions on other mints and the quality of them?
  3. hey, I'm young. just bought my first house and I'm working class. I'm not exactly able to throw tonnes of money into gold / platinum etc. so until that beautiful day comes I've taken to silver coin collecting, starting with the Britannia's and queen beast's as they aesthetically. I've collected back until 2011, 2010 backwards seam to be up 250% in price so I understand that the premium definitely increase and makes them a good investment. I watch youtube videos and hear about thing like the lunar series or silver panda's. yet I go to find them and they're either second hand and marked up or not on sale from the original vendors. I also almost bought the firstcoincompany ares god of war but thought "$200 for a coin, that's ridiculous"...only to find it is sold out and going for $1000 on ebaby now...DOH! how do you get a heads up about the up and coming coins? is there central places that are good to find information about what is coming out and a good investment...or do you literately just keep checking the market for new release and make snap judgement. I'm totally new to this and I'm happy to take any recommendations advice on what to do and how to do it. even if its that I've been a twat and britannias are not a great place to start. thanks in advance, Gareth.
  4. Hello Silver Forum! I've been on this forum for some months, but never introduced myself here. I'm a US collector of Silver Britannias and Lincoln Cents mostly. I recently started a Queen's Beast collection and occasionally am a sucker for random beautiful coins. I have a few bits and pieces in my collection that don't fit anymore and will be looking to sell some on this site and eBay. Looking forward to interacting with all of you!
  5. The Work of Jody Clark

    Hello Silver Forum, I'm in a bit of a dead-end regarding a numismatic hunt and would like your help. I've been a big fan of the Royal Mint's Britannia series and may be an Anglophile in general, so I was naturally drawn to the newly designed 5th definitive portrait design of Queen Elizabeth II. The designer who won the competition to be the engraver for that portrait (most likely the last one ever of QEII), is also the designer of the infamous "booty" Britannia proof coin of 2014 (image below), and the Queen's Beast series of coins that was introduced last year. If you haven't guessed by now I'm a fan of Jody Clark and his work. What I'm having difficulty with is finding more information on his other designs. So far I've discovered he designed the 2014 Ryder Cup silver medal (there are two versions of the medal but same design), a 2014 NATO Summit medal which was given to the Heads of State in attendance, and even the reverse of a Tanzanian coin (all pictured below). Does any other Silver Forum member have information on Jody Clark's other designs which were done for Lesotho (a medal), Costa Rica, Azerbaijan, or any information on the design's mentioned above? I've written to the Royal Mint to find out more information, but they haven't responded and I doubt they will. It wasn't a question about an order and I'm not residing in the UK so I bet my email was tossed. Appreciate the help all! D
  6. What should I buy?

    Hello guys, tax return season is coming up here in the states, I'm trying to purchase some silver. I don't know what to buy, maybe a mint tube of Libertads or Mapples or Britannias? What do you guys recommend? I wan to keep it under $600 US. Or would it be better to just buy a 1/4 oz of gold? Thank You.
  7. Looking for a 2014 six coin silver Britannia proof set if anyone has one to sell. Thanks.
  8. 1999 Silver Britannia Grading?

    Hi all, I have a 1999 1oz Silver Britannia that seems to be in its original mint seal. The coin looks in perfect condition. I was wondering whether or not I should sent it away to be graded, I've heard that these are quite rare in good condition. Also, how much would it be to get a coin graded? Cheers.
  9. Silver Britannia's + Milk Spots

    So, i received a 1998 britannia, very happy with it but when i was adding it to the stack, i decided to check my tubes as there were 1-2 i had never looked at. I found milk spots on around 80% of the coins. Each spotted coin varies from very little to almost covering 1 side. It seems to be worse of the queens face side but its on both. I remember this happened to some of my 2014's also. Little lost about what to do about this as brits are the corner of my stack. I dont want to be buying nice new shiny slices of heaven cut by the hand of god bruce lee style and sent to earth in coin form and praying for them to not spot up every year only to be disappointed every year. Of course i also lose value which is a bummer. I also have a tube of 2013 1.5oz polar bears and they've turned nasty also but they canadian. In fact come to think about all of my stuff in tubes have milk spotted except for 0.5oz sharks and 0.5oz apmex rounds. Everything else is in quadrum caps. Maybe time for a change to save to remaining few. Just looking to discuss of this has happened to you before and what you've done about it if anything.
  10. 1998-2011 Britannia opinions

    Is this a worthy collectible set? If so, how much would be considered a good deal to buy it in BU condition? Do you guys across the pond collect these? I looked around at the mintages and this seems like an OK set with not that many around, especially as a set. These are not graded and are raw.
  11. Anyone like toning with your Britannias?

    "Bright colors on this beautiful silver coin." One assumes this has been tampered with. Gawd knows how you could have stored a 2014 coin to get this effect. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/291607757759?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_sacat%3D0%26_nkw%3D291607757759%26_rdc%3D1
