  1. Today I inboxed a complete sterling silver set from the Franklin Mint (1981) of the World’s Greatest Airline Emblems - (bought this as a gift for my brother - but I think I may keep it for myself-😉
  2. Seeing the run in Palladium - platinum seems like a bargain at the current price. That being said - i thought it would be a good time to start collecting some platinum pamp fortuna bars to add to the collection - and I managed to source and buy the complete size run - 1 gram, 2.5 gram, 5 gram, 10 gram, half ounce, and 20 gram bars at a decent price. Had I bought these bars 4 years ago when I first looked at them - I would probably would have spent double what I just bought them for. Sometimes patience pays off.
  3. Is the run over? Or only starting? Who knows?
  4. I have found that the best way to dry a coin after cleaning is to hold it securely on the edges with a plastic Tweezer and then use a hair dryer to blow the water off the coin. This will prevent any possible scratches from using a cloth, etc.
  5. @Bullionbilly I realized after I posted - lol cheers
  6. Just released - queens beast - Yale
  7. Probably a good idea to keep some cash on hand for an extreme emergency - terrible hit the fan situation- 5000 pounds in 100 pound notes is a small envelop of money which can be hid in very clever places - behind moldings, in the walls, inside of hollow doors, inside of the wife’s shoe room (scratch the last one-lol) etc. There are a lot of theory’s on burgalary protection and starategy - like leaving a stash of hundreds Readily found - so the burglar will grab that and leave your house thinking he got a quick score. if you do decide to keep the cash at home - do put it in a fireproof envelop.
  8. By no means of the imagination should anyone think that these coins are rare. They are a billion coin that should carry a slight premium because of the collectability of the series. Once the series is over and the final mintages are out for all the coins - in my opinion we will find that the later coins in the series will have lower mintages than the lion and griffin. Also remember that at the time of release of the lion, it was the start of the 2 ounce silver coin phase. With more and more 2 ounce coins flooding the market - we will see how the pricing all pans out.

    Sovereign Help

    Where did you buy it online? Was it from a reputable dealer?
  10. Looked at the website but - how do you purchase?
  11. Gold and silver is just like any other investment - it is only worth what someone is willing to give you for it when you go to sell it. As for MM - he has produced some very interesting and entertaining videos about the monetary system, etc. I watched them all and will use that information- as well as all the other information out there to make my buying decisions. Which was to basically just buy what I like - and specialize in a certain area - pamp suisse bars, because at my level - I am basically a non-player in the market (I.e. not being able to make markets move, etc.). So my advise is to watch his videos and do your own additional research and make your own decision on what to do.

    Philly spots

    Phillys are prone to milk spots, i had an ms70 graded one spot in the holder - I cracked it out for fun a few years back.
  13. I think the answer to your question is that the gold market is very different from the silver market when it comes down to pamp bars. Most dealers sell pamp gold bars at the same prices as other gold bars of the same size. If they jacked the prices up to the same % markup as they do silver - no one would buy them. Pamp silver bars on the other hand - the dealers jack up the prices because people will buy them at that price. As with all businesses - there are high margin products and low margin products. In addition - pamp bars are considered works of art - so people will spend more to get something artistic over a normal silver bar. But this only applies to silver - since it is more affordable for people to pay $35 for a one ounce silver bar as opposed to $1300 for a one ounce gold bar.
  14. The real note to self should be - I did what I needed to do in researching the the items for sale - I reached out for advice before my purchase - and because of my efforts I adverted a possible scam. Great job!
