    Hi guys I’m super excited after stacking gold and silver for a few years I’ve decided to step up my game and purchase my first house.being as I’m 35 and believe the worst of the generations to be born as in the U.K. it’s nearly impossible to purchase a house without a lifetime ridiculously high mortgage which is why I started looking abroad.for the measly sum of £4000 or 4 ounces of gold 😜 I’ve purchased this with the idea of probably spending that amount again and renting it out:

    You can be upper class and poor, working class and rich. Whichever you are be proud of where you come from and understand money doesn’t buy class. Don’t worry about being considered rich. Work out what YOU need personally to feel well off and set about achieving it. I know people who earn £100k + a year with no assets and don’t own a stick of furniture. I also know people who earn around £20k who own their own home, eat out and holiday as much as they like. They aren’t travelling the world or living lavishly but they are happy and live within their means. Wealth is all subjective to a point.

    I am Indian and I find these things stupid. Reverse racism which just makes people take notice for the wrong reason. I understand diversity is important, but if it’s that important, go and recruit properly. I don’t care what race or gender the officer that helps me is, just help when I need it is enough.

    The problem is when you factor in inflation from 1973 to current date that £43 equates to £510 now. So basically you have doubled your intitial investment over 46 years which doesnt sound so impressive.

    Hi @augur You have some very interesting coins on display. I especially like the 20 Korona coin which would sit very well with my collection of angels...The MS66 grade for your 1914 rooster is very high, NGC have only ever graded one MS67 (for 1914) and nothing higher, so we’ll done on that pick up! I have yet to have any of my coins graded..The thought of being denied ‘access’ to any of my coins doesn’t sit well with my psyche...just my luck one day I will catch the kids playing tiddlywinks with them lol!😂 Having looked at my roosters, the restrikes (post 1906 I think) are certainly in better condition as you would expect, and if I ever do get one graded I think I would test the water with my 1914 as well...not sure it would compare well to your MS66 but I was very happy with it when it arrived..although it did cost way over spot! (£193) I have no idea what the dark area to the right of the roosters head is, but I guess it adds to the authenticity and charm of the coin.. Happy hunting to all ...I have just added a Gruffalo to my wanted list, but they are not released by the Royal Mint until March me thinks!

    This has been answered. @Sal if you would like to send me a PM thats fine, or if you would like to start a new thread discussing the British Royal Mail on this side of the pond thats also fine. But please, this is my For Sale thread. You have the answers which relate to the sending of my packages.

    Research was key for me checking the area house prices and rental prices.the thing that you have to ask yourself is what you want to do with it.if it’s only to be used as a holiday home and isn’t lived in for 9-10 months things start to degrade quickly when empty.for me renting long term Is the best option.i’ll probably buy another if this goes well and so on....

    Correct. However I don’t see pms as an investment unless trading etfs on the exchanges. I use them as a hedge against inflation, and an alternative saving mechanism. As such Gold hits the spot for me, I suck at saving and speculative investments are not an area I like playing with.

    Reminds me of that famous reply by the late George Best, when he was asked what had happened to all the money he had accrued during his years playing football - "Well, most of it went on fast cars, birds, and booze...….and the rest I just squandered"

    My partner and I own our home out right since 2002. For us it has been a blessing. Since my heath took a very drastic turn for the worst in 2012 Having no mortgage payments to make and known we had always have a roof over our head made us feel more secure in unknown territories Moving forward both of us now has now got private pensions and also have small home businesses. For me it is an asset and always will be. My mother always said " make sure you have a house that you have paid for and your troubles will at least be halved " IMOH she was right

    Some possible context to this, for thought...I definitely prescribe by the principles of unbiased (yes, I know each of us has our own subconscious biases that we need to at least be aware of) job hiring and recruitment in the workplace. Bottom line is are you skilled, have the right experience, competent, work well with others...all factors irrespective of an individual’s race, color, religious preference, all the other “equal employment opportunity” factors. But to a degree, I think in certain lines of work there needs to be a diversity of workforce. There may be a lack of women on the police force and they would be needed for direct interaction with women during arrests or processing. More minority ethnics for improved operational capabilities patrolling, serving, interaction with the public in certain communities. An analogy that comes to mind is the integration of women soldiers, or cultural advisors, serving with the majority male soldiers in Afghanistan. For interacting with the Afghan tribes, I think it proved highly valuable to have women soldiers talk with the tribal women and children to gain other perspectives and information, probably not able to be gained by meetings with the men and tribal leaders. Just some thoughts, and I don’t necessarily prescribe to selective job recruitment.

    I think the service offered is superb and more than reasonable at the price offered, I bet there are many reading this that wouldn’t go through the hassle BYB has to go through for £50 let alone a minimum of £25. As of these newbies charging in after just joining, I think they are being quite rude. A forum is a place where members share opinions / ideas and gather knowledge over time. These people have contributed NOTHING to date yet want to come in a get a free market place for their wares. Each to there own, but I think to criticise the service offered by BYB in any way is unfair and shows a complete lack of class. Take it or leave it but don’t knock it. Maybe only allow members to trade after a certain amount of feedback has been received.... earn the right to use the forum,..just a thought..
