    mr-dead reacted to h103efa in Today I Received.....   
    Been a bit excited for the last few weeks, but today I finally received this 30 g golden beauty! Hugest of thanks to @Marc
    Long story short, i'm a bit of a fan of The Phoenix (sentimental place from my uni+ days), hence my collecting of most things Phoenix such as the dragon and phoenix coins here! https://thesilverforum.com/topic/11158-today-i-received/?do=findComment&comment=247324
    During my many discussions with @Marc i told him about my affinity for Phoenix coins and he showed me one he had. From that moment i wanted it. Just loved the super design with the Phoenix and obviously the gold! I've got to learn more about the history behind it too. I think he was very reluctant to let it go, but i'm chuffed he did!
    Here its is, A 30 g (¥100,000) gold proof (PF70) coin commemorating The Enthronement of Emperor Akihito (Heisei). This emperor recently abdicated, the first time an emperor has done so in over 200 years. They are not rare coins, about 100,000 of them in proof, but they are very scarce outside of Japan. Now that the emperor has abdicated they probably hold a bit more historical significance! There's quite a story about the Japanese 20 g gold coin from this era, but maybe @Marc can tell that story in another post!

    mr-dead got a reaction from LoveSilver in Gold / silver money standard, will it ever happen?   
    I think the next evolutionary phase of money after another global crisis will be asset backed, state issued cryptocurrency (making all "unregulated" crypto e.g. BTC illegal in the process).
    It will be backed with oil, gold etc. starting out with "honest" money which will again be watered down through increasing leverage over time and we'll be back to square one in the not too distant future.

    Anyone worrying about the government stealing their gold need their heads examined. 
    The government don't need to worry about things like that.
    In a few years time the daft millennials will give over all their rights and embrace a cashless society where the government can take anything it wants with the press of a computer key. And they can't moan because they were the ones that let it happen.

    Trump's critics just done get it. They think the whole world hates him, when in fact 50% of the population, both here and in the US love him. Anything that winds up the left and sends them to their padded safe space is fine with me. The only violence and pure hatred seems to come from the left, not the right as they would have you believe.

    One thing that really annoyed me yesterday was that I had 6 people here working and NONE of them decided to vote. All said it wasn’t worth it because they voted for bexit and nothing happened. 
    4 of the 6 were well educated all of them only had to go 3 miles to the polling station.  WHAT A SAD DAY IN A DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY
