    Delivered today in exquisite condition, a delightful,  46.24 gram bar of what can only be described as "stuff dreams are made of".
    From a super forum member 1817Karl. A big "THANK YOU" my friend.
    Oh, and the two coins were nice as well.

    Madstacks reacted to AgCoyote in 2019 2 oz. RCM Orca/Killer Whale   
    I actually bought a ten ounce of this from a brokerage. I can say stock photos do no justice as the portion of the whale below water and above water have a different finish and the water around the whale is textured in a way that is different from the rest of the coin. It is stunning.
    The 2 ounce is now available on bold.RCM 2 oz Orca
     
    Here is a photo of my ten ouncer

    i am not a collector of coins but while i have been looking for cheap as chips silver 
    there are a lot of coins around £17.23 to as much as you'd like so they are around 
    but me also being a noob here i have noticed special edition coins are what people collect and yes they come with a 
    price and from what i gather its not to make money but just have nice shiny coins that people love to have
    i hope you enjoy searching for them 
    also if your not a member you can join for a month at a time so i am told as most sales of coins and bars and other bits
    take place on the members side of the forum maybe worth a look there 
    good luck and enjoy

    A good friend of mine bought a fake rolex a few weeks ago and was adamant that it’s EXACTLY the same as the real thing (not sure why he thinks he knows this).
    I looked it over and could see a few tell tale signs straight away but overall it wasn’t a bad fake - it cost a few hundred. I saw him last weekend and he was constantly re clipping the bracelet on his wrist as the clasp kept unlocking. This watch was only 3 weeks old!
    I’ve had my submariner for 10 years nearly and it’s still as crisp as the day i got it.
    I can’t afford a ferrari but I wouldn’t buy an MR2 with a ferrari body kit as it defeats the whole point of owning/driving the real deal. It’s the same with watches in my opinion. I buy it because I appreciate the workmanship that goes into it, and the value of the work which isn’t lost over time - this is why these watches hold their value.

    Ok guys after tonight's fun I thought i would get this post out a bit early and let everyone know what has been raised. Appart from all the fun and games, I have seen first hand just how good people can be, there has been some incredible generosity. And the total figure is down to each and every person who contributed. 
    I am going to update this post tomorrow with the actual video donation.
    There is a lot of thank yous i need to do..Where to start? 
    Firstly I would like to thank @MickD @Jamesd @Piggybank @Peacemaker These guys directly donated from their stacks and made a huge difference to the total sums raised. 
    Id like to thank everyone who made donations be it either on top of winning bids or independently - You guys made a real difference.
    Id also like to thank everyone who bid on the auctions. - Your generosity with your bids has made a real difference too.
    Id also like to thank @ChrisSIlver for approving the auctions and guiding me in the right direction (i was going to do tickets lucky dip but this would have added complications)
    I think I have remembered everyone - If i have not I am really sorry - I am overwhelmed by the support and participation. 
    So what did we raise??????
     
    Wait for it.,..
     
                             £453.33!!!
    A Big well done to everyone, thats a cracking amount and far exceeds what I thought possible when I first planned to do that and its all thanks to you guys. 
    This pays for 1 hours of Scientific research from 9 of the brightest minds armed with microscopes and petridishes. That lab with 9 top qualified people will be running for an hour all on what we did..Who knows what discovery one of them may make! because of you. 
    (the money is spent in different ways, but this link gives a break down on how it is spent:)

    Madstacks got a reaction from Mark10110 in Last minute buying 1oz jitters   
    People who have money will buy it if they want it be it an ounce or a sovereign, in the grand scheme of things 10k would not be that much to many. (though it would be to me)
    I just spent 3.5K on a watch without a second thought, and if gold was that price and I wanted an ounce id do the same. 
    Smaller coins would give the option of selling less at a time and i think thats the main bonus of them. 
    But I would have no worrys about selling an ounce ever being hard.
