    My girlfriend called me a “saddo” when I said I was gonna go and get my coins out lol. When I get something new that I really like it’s like when I was a kid with a new video game, that excitement to get back to it

    Yesterday I was sitting behind two young people and noticed a U.S. quarter (0.19£uk, 0.22€eu) laying on the floor and I asked the nearest of the two "Did you drop a quarter ?", and she responded no, and then just left it there.  I turned to the other and said "You ?" and he said no, and then they both laughed and said that it wasn't even worth picking up.  I said "Well I'm not to proud to pick it up" and picked it up and put it in my pocket lol.  Brats lol.

    Got this 1943 Jefferson Nickel yesterday just for fun. It was 20p and the bloke serving in the shop really unenthusiastically said “wow 20p I can close early now” lol. I like it and have been cleaning it up with Ketchup. Cellulose thinners did nothing on it but left ketchup on and wiped it off. It now lives in my pocket 😁

    Having bullion is like always having a winning lottery ticket in your pocket just before you redeem it for your winnings.  It is pure possibility, a spring in your step, and a smile on your face, and the knowledge that you alone possess this small treasure upon which nobody can lay a claim.  It's tangible, and its yours, and for someone to take it from you they would literally have to fight you to take it from your hands.  Women will come and go, the stars will twirl around in their heavens, empires will rise and fall, but that bit of gold and silver will be as wonderful as the day you found it - forever a promise of a warm bowl of soup, or some shoes, or anything else your wistful mind might dream of.

    Could be many reasons, but they are all bullish;
    The smart money getting in early. 
    A way to mobilise more gold supply without raising prices (large spread on scrap offer to spot). 
    Preparations to take advantage of some negative event that will see hard up folks willing to part with their wealth at a discount (brexit, more likely recession). 
    Apparently when governments start selling their gold reserves, the bottom is in. The UK did it last time (so called Browns bottom), Canada did it this time perhaps. I hope we get that promised low before it goes off.

    Gold break the $1400 mark starts to head $1500 you will see a lot more of these adverts.
    Several sentiments in the market today, one we now entered a new bull market, two going see $1,500 oz Gold before major selling pushes the prices down, three PMs over the course of this year/next will go back to last years lows and test these prices again. As long as we continue to see the price of gold climb it becomes more profitable for these firms to advertise Cash for your old unwanted gold.

    I don't think it's brexit prep, more like praying on people that believe the government created scare stories and think there will be money/benefit issues in the next few months.

    I've never actually handled 22 or 24ct gold. The few bits of gold I own are either in their original sealed certicards or left in their capsules, even though they're only bullion grade. This is because I've left them attached to whatever paperwork they came with. I don't know if it'll help but I thought it might help with their authenticity. I've never sold any gold so don't know how useful it'll be.

    Here’s my handling collection! Fondling your assets gives you that gold fix we all need. Not everything has to be locked into plastic. The gold 3.2oz cast bar does it for me, with the ‘buffalo’ in support - with 2 great sides to the coin. Just feel those sharp edges.... Phew!

    I look at it, go "oh thats nice" then close the box/bag and stick it in the safe. Every now and then i get some nice pieces out to look at because its comforting to know that should the worst ever happen i have enough gold/silver to get me out of the bad.
    I sleep soundly knowing i have a gold/silver insurance policy.

    The price of precious metals would be going to the Moon b/c there was sufficient buying pressure to drive up price and overcome the usual price suppression forces. This is likely big pressure on physical which starts to unravel the paper derivatives.
    The handful of coins members of the stacking community might be selling in those circumstances would be neither here nor there. Who would you sell to? - You just described a situation where there is huge buying pressure for physical. When this happens you start seeing adverts on the telly inviting people to sell all their gold. You won't see a situation where prices are racing up but no-one is buying.
    As Mr Dead points out, if metals are racing up then you will see problems in the fiat system. Metals move up b/c fiat is moving down. Metals are a safe haven and that means paper assets are getting dumped. When you sell real money you are buying fake money. Real money will be rising b/c people are falling off the Merry-go-round and paper assets crumble. Things go up for longer than you expect and down for longer than you expect. So i would not be cashing in my metal in a hurry when the bubble bursts. As mentioned here, there would need to be a better home for value than real money before moving.
    When we have seen recessions in the property markets they have tended to last for years. Land and property have been good longer term investments but they must yield more income than they cost or they become a liability. What was good farming land might become unproductive, property with many willing tenants paying high rents might cease to be. i have seen thousands of Victoria mansions that have become slums, that have roofs falling in. Many companies disappear or linger shadows of their former selves.
    When precious metals shoot up for real - i won't be rushing to sell. There will be a time to sell some of the precious metal but it is not a decision to be made on impulse.

    We will sell silver going up and sell silver going down if silver shot up in price. Cos most of us are clueless how high it will go. And there will be others who will buy silver going up and buy more when coming down.

    The above is pretty much what I would do, but not all in one go. I have experience of being a landlord, so am comfortable with owning rental properties..I think it is important for people to stick to things they know and understand. It is unwise to venture into pastures new in search of yield, if you do not know what you are doing.
    First thing to go would be all the carp stuff i’ve bought...We all make mistakes and I am no exception. I have hundreds of 1oz silver coins all ready to go to newbies buying in at the top 🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑
    As @KevinFlynn mentioned previously, I would keep the collector orientated pieces which have taken time to collate. All the bullion grade coins would be out the door..USE, Pandas, Buffalo rounds, Britannia’s, Maples etc.
    Whatever you hold your wealth in, just beware...Governments prey on those that have wealth (Top 1% excluded of course) and will do all they can to remove it from you. Having money invested in numismatics that ‘do not exist’! May not be a bad idea.
    Each to there own, but let’s always try and help each other on the forum..
    @Sliopjbsail Hope that helps!

    It is so simple. Once I started to “trust” the government again, I would sell it all. 
    All I am forced to read and think about is how untrustworthy politicians are.....when that starts to change, I sell....qed. I dont think I will be selling anytime very soon.
    Remember Blair screaming Cool Britannia...what a friggin comedian and what was the price of pms ? Lol.
