    … the initial results and stark consequences of my front-loading, year-to-date, pre-Brexit bullion purchasing strategy, in anticipation of a possible end to the availability of cheap and/or VAT-free silver in the UK. Most of this was acquired before the original March 29th exit date from the EU. So, pretty good timing … with the benefit of hindsight. Anyway … as of now, 76 more days (at least) to add to the pile! Consequences? … Urgent trip to B&Q required, to buy more robust cutting tools for the ‘great unboxing’ that lies ahead! NeutronJack

    The other day I received, for a second time, my 1776 Maria Theresia Taler, after it was graded, thanks to @Numistacker. Some might describe the grading result as a disaster but I still like it, it's still AU and it was conserved so it is almost as shiny as a new bullion coin, now. My first graded coin - I would have imagined the NGC slabs bigger, from the photos and videos. They are actually quite handy. Given the "detail" result, I will probably still get it out of the slab and put it into a capsule with a foam ring. It still makes a very nice, historical, ungraded coin. Before and after conservation:

    Sad news that a serving Police officer died in the line of duty. The thin blue line is thin enough but the loss of life just makes it worse. PC Andrew Harper was only doing his job and there could be no way that the people who took his life should ever get away with it. I find it sickening that when in uniform he would be treated with a lack of respect that brought to an end his life. He was only married for four weeks and was due to go on his honeymoon today. If anyone attacks a Police Officer then they certainly don't respect anyone in society, so they don't deserve any sympathy when met with the full force of the law. My condolences to his wife and family.

    I'm really impressed with the Magnificent Maple Leaves 10 ounce silver coin. If you don't have one, make it your next item. The detail of the leaves is very impressive. I know it's sacrilege but I wish they used this version on the 1 ounce. I feel like I crossed a rite of passage and now have my first PAMP gold bar:)

    Further to my video on the Celebration Sovereign (https://youtu.be/XuLccmpjkm4) it appears there IS a difference between the February and November coins after all. The spacing of the ribbing on the mulled edge is wider on the November coin and Narrow on the February coin.

    Police are there to maintain law and order, the populous, at large, today believe they have ultimate rights..... however at the same time they forget their responsibility, to site an example I bought from a store this morning and the cashier UNDER charged me, I went back and corrected the situation my right was to keep walking my responsibility was to pay ! Until we instill a sense of moral obligation into the populous we are destined to be foul society.... make punishment fit the crime properly !

    Buckingham Collection - Sneaky

    I have to disagree with you there. This is not a private issue but one that all forum members should see, look at the evidence and issues that many many people have had, and then make an informed choice as to whether to use this company or not. This forum has been great for information on both good and bad companies to buy from, and should continue to do so in the future. If people can't tell others about their experiences, in order to warn them of what may or may not happen, then what is this forum for. If people don't wish to read these posts then guess what, they don't have to. As long as no-one posts anything libelous, and only post factual information and true life experiences, then everyone is the wiser. Note the fact that TBC deleted the comments they made about me, (they obviously realised they had over stepped the mark), but the comments are still visible in my replies. People can make their own judgements of who is right or wrong. I bear the company no ill will, but I certainly won't ever be buying from them in the future.

    A tremendous “Thank you!” to @ZGrizzlyWord for this beautiful 2016-W 1/2 oz Gold Walking Liberty Half Dollar Centennial. I have been looking at this since since I read one of the recent articles in “Coin World” concerning the US Mint wasn’t authorized to Mint this coin as a commemorative. Also, from @Lr103, I received a 2010 Gold Sovereign Proof at a great price! @Lr103 has some really great coins and is awesome to work with! Lastly, had a silver pick up with some 100x 1 gram Silver Bar - Valcambi Silver CombiBar™ (w/Assay)...never know when you may need to pay someone with a pinch o’ silver!

    Great vid and info.. Maybe a stupid question but I was just wondering is there a way of testing silver shot (grain) ?? To tell the difference between 925 or 999 grain..or is it easy to tell the difference by the eye and touch..?

    Loss of a Thames Valley Police officer

    People forget that their rights are someone else's responsibility to uphold, and vice versa, a product of a high trust society. This has been eroded as a result of the social and cultural changes over past few decades and I don't think it's coming back, the direction of the trend is pretty clear to anyone with their eyes open.

    Loss of a Thames Valley Police officer

    The problem is many of the police are not fit for purpose. i would not be so keen to have police routinely armed. Having said that i believe it is an absolute right to be able to protect yourself, your property and your family. Guns have never been part of the English way of life but not until shortly after WWI, guns were lightly regulated. There were attempts to legislate but this was resisted by MP's. Legislation affects ordinary people - criminals aren't affected, they will get their hands on guns if they want them.

    Climate Change isn't about protecting the climate. It's main goal is to use it as a means to further take peoples wealth away in the form of "carbon taxes". Why is it that the vast majority of these protest groups for "climate change" almost always lead back to some Marxist group or another? It's all part of their goal in controlling the means of production. If you can control industry by way of levying "carbon taxes", then by default you control production. I believe there was a report that came out some time back whereby it calculated the carbon footprint of using coal as a direct fuel to generating electricity was significantly less than using coal to power other forms of power stations.

    Hi @BackyardBullion and @ChrisSIlver Could I please reserve my existing serial numbers for 2019? FYR: I own the following 100g Silver Forum Bars from 2018: 48, 56, 70, 103, and 106 (5 in total). So, that’s 3 for 2019 (48, 56, 70). In addition, I’m happy to vacate the other 2 spots on the waiting list (103 and 106) to give others a chance to buy. Thanks in advance. NeutronJack

    Just a little thank you

    Big thank you to @Pampfan for sorting me out with this U.S Mint pouch for my silver quarters, couldn't find any in the UK at all and nobody on ebay would ship outside of the global shipping programme which charges £20. This guy asks for my address to calculate postage cost and he will get back to me, (I fell for it) 5 days later, he hadn't got back to me, I'm still searching the web for a pouch, I hear the post, there's an envelope covered in stamps of the U.S flag, this guy not only sent me the pouch, he didn't charge me a penny, even for postage, what a guy! Thanks again bud!

    I know, detail grades are a pain but don't let this put you off. Use it to increase your knowledge and submit other interesting coins like this, it's a plus to the numismatic market in my opinion. That said from someone who had two details coins in his last submission... 😬

    Every 3 months without fail I get the usual Smart Meter bumpf from my supplier saying I should sign up for "a smarter home". One day I got so sick I rang them up to change my marketing preferences and asked them to stop sending said bumpf. Advisor simply remarked back "Well eventually it'll be Law to have a Smart Meter". "OK" I said "When that day comes I will be completely disconnecting from the entire Grid by physically removing the cables and going full on off grid." LiPo4 battery storage in the last year has come a seriously long way in terms of how much it can store and how quickly it can charge itself up. You can now get a 5Kwh house system with LiPo4 batteries that will have a 30+ year life span for under £5,000. Even with our relatively cloudy UK sky's, solar panels can now absorb 60+ % of the solar. Combined with many modern household appliances being specifically built to use minimal power and it'll soon be a win/win for us and a big lose/lose for the power companies. That's why the big Petro Energy companies detest Elon Musk.

    1oz Britannia question

    If you’re using a ring, then 32mm. If it’s a direct fit capsule then 32mm for Air-tite brand. Other brands may require 33mm and will vary from brand to brand.

    My 1st Gold Coin - Help & Advice please

    I have no clairvoyance, and I do not claim to know with any confidence what will happen over the short term. I have ideas of what the price might do over the next weeks and months, but my guess is just as likely to be right or wrong as anyone else's. I would not in the least bit be surprised if gold retraces back to $1300 over the next few months if current jitters subside, but equally I it would not surprise me if we saw $1700 if just a few things continue to escalate. I have been around for long enough to know that markets can surprise both to the upside and downside. Your best bet is to ignore the short term volatility and look at the big picture.
