    Chards Bonanza Week!

    No email for me. I last got one about something else on 12 Sept so I am definitely signed up. 😐

    Gold Bubble ?

    Is that not the whole point, to a degree? Build up what you are comfortable with then stash it away and forget about it until the time it is needed? To me it isn’t an investment, I am not expecting it to shoot to the moon and if it does there are probably a bunch of other problems to deal with (see Venezuela). However I sleep better knowing it is there providing me some security should that day come. For me, it provides an excellent way to save whilst still getting the little buzz you get from buying something new. Is gold in a bubble? Who knows for certain. I don’t think so but I may very well be wrong. If I am, oh well, I will still have my precious!

    The Attraction to Silver Unboxing videos

    @JunkBond Thanks for the shout out. RL has kept me very busy recently and I just haven't had enough spare time to make any videos. A new job and a few other things have sucked up all my time and I have fallen out of the habit as of late. I am still stacking though.

    completed Empty Royal Mint Full Sovereign Tube

    If you are in London, I have found Sharps Pixley usually have one spare which they will give you for free if you ask nicely when making a purchase.

    London coin fair

    I wouldn't say don't go if you are in London anyway, just don't expect too much from it. It is a light snack rather than a three course meal!

    London coin fair

    I have been a couple of times. It is quite small, just one room and a lot of the tables are ancients and the like. There are a few tables selling sovereigns and some slabbed coins as well as a bit of silver. Silver tended to be pretty expensive. The table I do like belongs a company called the coin cabinet. The dealer is very friendly and good for a chat. I think Numistacker has dealt with him a few times. £3 to get it in.

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

    Sharps Pixley is a really nice place to buy first time. Central London shop in St James's St, a short walk from Green Park tube station. https://www.sharpspixley.com/
