  1. It wouldn't be a series, but an Irish bullion coin with a shamrock or harp could do well. Has the traditional zodiac been done rather than the lunar calendar?
  2. Maybe just a response to the previous day's sell - off?
  3. I think the past few years have been fantastic. Will continue to collect for sure!
  4. Apparently they plan it all at least 2 years in advance of release but you can email them suggestions (but need to think a few years ahead!)
  5. VAT is always neutral for a VAT registered trader in that they pay over what they have received to, and reclaim what they have had to pay from, HMRC. The end consumer is always the one who bears the cost of VAT so even if a (VAT registered) non profit entity bought the silver and reclaimed the VAT, it would then have to charge VAT to the people it was distributing to.
  6. Silver tarnishing can occur through exposure to hydrogen sulfide in the air (occurring "naturally" but in ever higher concentrations since industrialisation). Don't know if milk spots are a symptom of this or are exacerbated by it. Damn annoying when it happens!
  7. Hopefully one day, in an open and honest way!
  8. I like the design, there is some topical symbolism I notice. Cannot justify spending the premium though.
  9. I tried that about 18 months ago and got about 5 responses! I put the link on the forum but was met with a lot of "uh why bother trying".
  10. As with circulating coinage, there needs to be a coinage proclamation issued before being released (otherwise they cannot be legal tender) and you would assume this is all planned in advance so in theory she could die and there still be coins issued with her portrait for a while, until at least the new monarch issued their own coinage proclamations (whether coronated or not they would still be sovereign).
  11. To be fair, he's not saying 500oz would buy you a house now, but it would if silver was at a price where it could back all the dollars in existence (in his opinion). I find his broader analysis quite insightful but ultimately he is flogging the shiny stuff so can't be relied on as impartial when it comes to price predictions, timing and investment strategies!
  12. Blackadder AND Ferris Bueller references, it must be Christmas!
  13. Different years on the coins, did you get sent the wrong year?
