    Brexit Insurance?

    I think the whole Brexit mess is that it won't be as bad as the remainers think and not as good as the leavers hope.

    first time gold purchase, £8000 budget, what to buy.

    If you need to sell some, say the boiler packs or a big hole in the roof, getting rid of small sizes is quicker and more easy. Not everyone can just shell out £X for an oz, merchants will not always give you the best price for a full oz also.

    You could buy 8 1oz coins, however I wouldn't. Mix it up, Sovs are always good, some 1/4oz Queens Beasts, 8g Pandas and other coins or bars around the 1/4oz mark. Yes you will pay more per oz, yet they are more easy to sell if needs be.

    Uneven edges on 10oz Griffins - poor quality

    Just measured by 10oz Griffin. Taking the coin as a clock face 12.00 - 5.21 3.00 - 5.71 6.00 - 5.06 9.00 - 5.34 Now to sell it as an error.

    Tax on importing silver from US to UK

    Maybe much cheaper to get it posted in smaller parcels. If the silver is worth only £49 I don't think HMRC worry too much, once you go over £50 then they may pickup on it. Also it might be worth sending to different addresses too.

    Yet another proof, worth grading?

    coin on Royal Mint web site

    Funny looking helmet, a cross between a 3rd century Imperial Roman and a 11th century 'Saxon'?

    Richer counties have higher tax rates. If was in the UK, which has high tax, not as high as quite a lot of other places, would add around 20% right off the bat. Also start up costs would add to the, erm, cost. Improved or brand new transport links may have to be built and new plants for processing and transport links to those places. The end it might not be worth smaller countries even trying to mine. Try asking the same question on www.alternatehistory.com
