    Received these from the US today. The Pearl Harbour is a pretty uninspiring design compared to the Liberty but it's actaully much better in hand than it looked. I've been meaning to get some Cleopatras for a while now, very nice round.

    Yes I saw that. The guy was wanting too much, he should have sold it 5 years ago. I've never understood the wine investment game. People pay way over the top for the top Chateau which is very good but not worth the high prices. The wine then increases in value due to scarcity and demand with people paying ridiculous money in the end before the value then plummets as the wine is ready for drinking! Madness! It's a bit like a Ponzi scheme or a game of dare as everyone looks for "the greater fool" to take the wine off them at even greater prices.

    Yes the early 1980s this was when I was young and it was the early 1980s when I asked my Grandad and his brother (worked on the stockmarket) where to put my money, with a smile my Grandad took a Sovereign out of a draw and said 'have a look at this, its got a different design on it a shield'. At this point my uncle butted in don't be daft put it in gilts Gold is expensive, then an extremely long exchange happened between them quite heated, i remember well. After a while and an intervention by my Nan and my Aunt it was decided I would put the money into Gilts as I had missed Gold and I would have to wait for that. I waited till the late 1980s when my Grandad showed me Gold again. Gilts paid well in the early to mid 1980s. My Grandad and my Uncle were very competitive and always argued about everything. Funny what triggers a memory

    I don't bother trying to macromanage my PMs. I just mainly buy collectables, gold and silver, plus semi-numismatics for as close to bullion as possible. A fair number of my sovereigns would be regarded as bullion of a sort ie probably worth more than bullion to collectors but not so much that I can't flog them as bullion if/when gold flies. The same would apply to my semi-numismatic silver. I have very little what could be classed as simply bullion. Nobody knows how the prices of PMs will pan out or what the GSR is likely to be in the future, so don't beat yourself up about it trying to outsmart the markets.

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    I agree with much of the above, but I come to a different conclusion. Living in the UK, you lose ~20% of the value of silver as soon as you buy it. Another chunk in postage, or another ~20% if you buy it onshore and pay VAT. Gold, meanwhile, can be had in your hand for less than 5% of its price. I agree there is probably more upside to silver relative to gold, but you need to go a long way before you make your money back. Anywhere else in the world, I'd be buying pretty much only silver, maybe flirting with gold. Here in the UK, I buy gold and buy the occasional silver coin or bar for fun.

    Anyone buy from sharpspixley.com?

    @MickB Just found the email : here is the copy and paste - looks like the store is now open. They are also offering safe deposit facility A new narrative for gold? I’ve spoken many times here about gold’s need for a new narrative. Last week I was lucky enough to attend the opening party of the new Sharps Pixley gold store on St James’s Street in London. Chief executive Ross Norman spoke about all the innovation that the gold market experienced in the bull market of the noughties – from the invention of the exchange-traded funds (ETFs) to the online bullion dealers such as Goldcore, Goldmoney and BullionVault. But in the bear market, the innovators, he said, seemed to run out of ideas. With the new Sharps Pixley store to add to their already excellent gold news feed, that may be starting to change a little. If gold is to be considered a legitimate asset on a par with stocks, bonds or real estate, then ordinary people have to be made aware of it. Of course, a rising price will go some way to doing that, but it’s a two-way dance. You need the innovations to attract buyers to drive the price higher in the first place. The World Gold Council is paid fortunes to do this. And, let’s face basic facts, it’s not that hard to make gold glamorous and alluring. But it has managed to keep it stuffy and middle-aged. So it’s great to see the Sharps Pixley store in such a prominent position on St James’s Street, just behind Piccadilly. With all that shiny stuff in the window, the shop is probably now the most conspicuous on the street. They’ve got golden taxis driving around too. And once you enter the shop, you could spend quite a bit of time (and money) there. There are all sorts of beautiful gold and silver products you can buy – jewellery, watches, coins, bars, little statues. And there’s all sorts of fascinating material about the history of gold and its role through the ages. This development just the kind of innovation that gold needs. And you should all go. If you’re lucky, you might even get to handle that 400 oz (12.5k) bar you can see me holding in the picture above. That’s the best part of a third of a million quid I’ve got in my hands there. Pretty cool, huh? Until tomorrow, Dominic Frisby MoneyWeek

    All of us in the UK....

    All of us in the UK have it so hard on this silver & gold stacking price wise compared to Australia & over in the U.S The only thing we really have in the UK is finding a good special offer that's as close to spot as possible and paying 20% on top with postage aswell. Prices are well too high over here! i know you can find the odd good deal on Atkinsons etc but Silver seems so much cheaper over in the U.S and much more to choose from. i watch video's on youtube all the time & the U.S people are getting bar after bar and coin after coin because prices are so much better. One company i see was offering a special price of 10oz bars for just $0.35 over spot price. Ebay - i know you can find the odd good bargain but find most people seem to be just flipping on it asking for outrageous prices from spot, also loads of fakes...so dont really tend too use it. I know you can buy with STG for good prices but very limited with hardly anything to choose from apart from the same coins over & over again. No bars etc One website i have come across im thinking of using is http://www.muenzshop-berger.de/ , has anyone used them? Not too much to choose from but much better prices than whats in the UK, also have bars & gold. the postage is $18
