    Incredibly bad taste and insensitive, they owe the families a grovelling apology at very least, but shouldn't be a police matter

    Guy Fawkes night is celebrating a terrorist attack failing, what is the purpose of burning Grenfell towers effigy? at best to be "edgy" at worst to offend victims for fun
    I do think there is a line crossed when people are being absolute c_nts and that shouldn't be ok under free speech, the Westborough baptist church come to mind picketing funerals, but I also appreciate it's extremely tricky and perhaps unworkable because who judges what is and what isn't appropriate

    To me, this looks sacrilegious.
    I would have enjoyed (and definitely ordered) a one-year jubilee issue in sovereign size and alloy, with QEII of course, and the C mintmark. Just like the new Indian sovereign.

    I can't blame them though if people are willing to pay that, business is business (they should have given Numi a little kickback :p)

    Kman reacted to NeutronJack in 2018 India Gold Sovereign   
    Last week, I visited Dubai on business and like many other self-respecting gatherers of shiny objects, headed to the Gold Souk during an opportune period of downtime.
    Whilst wandering around one of the narrow alleyways, I happened to come across this …

    … the 2018 India Gold Sovereign.
    I know there’s been some discussion on the Silver Forum and YouTube among members of the community over whether these would continue to be produced after 2017, so I thought I’d offer a ‘heads-up’ to anyone interested.
    One interesting point to note is the rather drastic change in the colour of the packaging material from red to brown, which meant I didn’t immediately recognize what I was looking at, to be honest.
    Does anyone happen to know the reason for this?
    There’s nothing to indicate on the coin itself, or the packaging, that this change has any particular meaning or significance. None of the traders/sellers I asked professed to know the reason for this either, though all were unanimous in their disapproval of the new brown colour.
    So, is it a one-off … a final ‘radical’ fling? Or, merely a permanent change to be repeated in 2019 and beyond?

    I only buy a coin if I like it. There is a danger of becoming a slave to coin series collections, result, instead of enjoying collecting you become frustrated.

    This thread is intended as a resource to help new stackers/collectors
    Please see below links to various Silver Forum discussions over the years on the topic of "what to buy" silver vs gold, stacking vs collecting, bars vs coins etc
    Note: These discussions are UK oriented and are about what to buy in our humble opinions, not where to buy.

    I'll say one thing for stacking gold and silver, it's made me a lot better at parting with my cash for other things.  I used to detest buying shoes, thought it was a waste of money, I'd rather stick £40 on a horse than buy shoes with it. (£40 was my upper limit for footwear as well, no £90 trainers here, £24 was usually what I paid for what I considered a good pair).
    But now I've adopted the attutude if I can pay £50- £100 for an ounce of numismatic silver I can pay the same for a decent pair of shoes, it's made me more materialistic in this way.

    I've got really interested in trainers/sneakers lately
    The other month I wanted to find the most comfortable everyday trainer to buy which got me watching a lot of youtube videos about shoes, which made me interested in the technology and design side, then I learned more about the collectible side
    For instance, Adidas have a new technology called 4d where they use light and oxygen to sculpt a liquid to make a comfortable/bouncy performance sole
     
    They collaborated with Daniel Arsham (a contemporary New York artist) and made this trainer which released on the 12th of this month in limited numbers
     

     
    It was sold by Adidas for £399.99 which is a lot, but it's already instantly reselling for £1k
    Nike released a trainer yesterday called Air Max 97 "the ten" Menta which is a collab with Off White (artsy street fashion label) for £159.95, already selling for £500-600

     
    Two shoes mentioned are limited quantities which is obviously making the resale price
    Both shoes got released at 9am on their launch days, Adidas you get put in a queue and have to be lucky to be put through to buy (but you can have 20 different chrome users in the queue) and Nike you had to enter a raffle between 9-9:30 and again had to be lucky
    There's been quite a lot of money making opportunities with reselling since I've got interested, the two examples I've used are just the most recent and are both from the past week
    If you enjoy learning about the topic and keeping up to date with releases, then it's super obvious what shoes are going to have a high resell value and you should try and get
    How big the "sneaker" community is makes you appreciate how small the precious metals community is 
    I'm finding it a lot of fun
