    1st coin of a new serie (from Mint of Poland) called Ancient Chinese Warriors : Zhao Yun  2oz 
    Very high premium as all coins coming from Mint of Poland, but highly desirable with a mintage of 500 and moreover, a coin mainly destined for the Chinese market. According to Powercoin, only 2 european dealer have a total allocation of 20 coins each for all Europe.
    I have been lucky to get it from Powercoin at the first price
     


    Also got last week the 3rd coin from Gods serie : Hephaestus
    Highly sought after. The coin was at 310€ at the beginning, then 450€ less than one hour later and now at 600€, and 700 euros on ebay

    Just picked up a 2011 American Eagle 25th Anniversary 5 coin set at the LCS near work today.  The W proof had incredible toning on it, and was a big reason I bought this set rather then continue looking for a blast white set.  I'm not one of those collector's that goes for toned ASE's usually, but this proof is striking with a beautiful dark blue to violet toning across the mirrored fields and Lady Liberty.

    and thats if your lucky and what turns up is actually silver or gold from ebay.
    Newbies should stick to trusted dealers to get a feel for the real thing to start before bargain hunting.

    This is one of the latest Seamasters, i think its likely to be the next bond watch. (This isn’t mine its a sneaky pic i took when i tried it on!)
    It also has a crystal back and i think its a new movement to the previous Seamasters. I tried it on the day it came out and loved it. Good value aswel compared to what Rolex are trying to charge for a their models with a rubber strap.

    20 years old and still keeping great time, and has never broken down.
     

    The only downside of having a nice watch is the servicing costs which for a Tag are ridiculous. I now just replace the battery at a local jewellers every few years and he does it there and then for £5...yes five pounds. The only downside is it is no longer waterproof but that really is not a problem..
    Nearly pulled the trigger a year or two ago on a Seamaster black dial, but couldnt do it...watching Michael Mcintyre getting attacked in his Range Rover for his Rolex sort of put me off...
     
    If  i ever change my mind I think the seamaster will be the one!

    @Madstacks the dial is really nice and has a lot of depth to it. I don’t know much about the used market for seiko - you know more than me! The main thing is if you love it - if its also going to hold value/gain thats just a bonus. My other watch is a Rolex Submariner:

    The depth of colour in the dial is something that makes me love it as much now as the day i got it - around 8 years ago. Actually i love it more now. But its the dial i love as its got a so much going on. If you feel the same about the seiko then i just think go for it!

    This year i purchased what i would describe as my “dream watch”. It’s not something i wear every day but its something I appreciate every second it’s on my wrist. I’ve wanted it since before i had a pot to piss in as they say so to me it was a really special purchase. Plus... ITS GOLD!

    So @Madstacks if you think you will get £1000 worth of enjoyment out of it then i say go for it!

    My daily is an Omega Speed Master Pro Moonwatch which I wear on a gasgas bones made to measure strap (great quality and a good price - https://www.gasgasbones.com/)
    Crystal sandwich version so has a crystal front and case back so you can see the movement which is nice, comes in a huge presentation box with lots of extras.

    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.

    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.
