    i feel like im a trigger for this post.
    I am not a financial expert, but as with yourselves and buying gold, you will know there are dozens of criteria you look at in order to judge a purchase (condition, purity, age, etc). Well from what i do in stocks, i look at a companies, regional and globalfinancial data and indicators. I generally focus around oil and gas, tech and biotech companies. but there has been a huge swing (overpricing) or stocks in the last year across the market that while it looks good in everyones account, doesnt add up on paper. Then the more i looked a bit deeper the more alarms i seemed to find.
    i wont type out all the research ive done, because thats 1)boring, 2) its ultimately still just my opinion gathered from seperate facts.
    but if your interested, take a look at:
    1 - the early indicators for a recession
    2- the current unemployment rate
    3 - the current consumer debt
    4 - the current royal/federal bank debts
    5 - the huge price-to-earnings inflation of all US stocks
    6 - china-US trade war implications
    7 - brexit uncertainty
    8 - italian looming bailout
    9 - expiring goverment bonds (bonds possibly the biggest firework, if it goes off).
    10 - near zero base interest rate
    11 - Londons falling house prices
    ah theres loads. its quite scary.

    Well finally arrived today.  It took a couple weeks longer then they expected to ship.  I think there were some casting difficulties.  Heads or Tales 30+ oz silver Britannia statue.  This thing is fantastic!  I love their products.

    The sovereign is a good coin in the UK. They are tax free to buy and sell. They are very popular - fairly easy to sell and buy.
    What is good in the UK may not be good in Hungary.
    Why do you only want non-circulated coins?
    Philharmonics are basic gold coins - they are like Krugerrands. Philharmonics are not collectible coins - people will only buy them for the gold. There are coins which may appreciate more and develop collector potential. Perhaps the Queen's Beast coins - the 1/4oz could be good. You will pay a little more but i think they have potential to make more money. i would not bother with Philharmonics unless they have special tax treatment in Hungary.

    I got _extremely_ lucky and got one of these sets for _a lot_ less than what i should have paid. The first genuine deal I've ever had at an auction.
    I had been eyeing this up for ages now.
    United Nations 1995 Silver Proof 36 coin set (with all COA's - this alone is very rare).
    There were only 1394 of these sets ever made, most of them got broken up from the sets, though some of the coins exist separate (in their own individual presentation cases).
    Some really notable coins in here, the lowest mintage Irish coin (ever), Moroccan 200 dirhams, Argentine Peso, Norwegian 50 Kroner, Latvia 1 Lat, Uruguay $200, Oman 1 Rial, GB £2
    The list goes on. Estimated Value is about 1000 quid, I guess. Maybe more.
    Has anybody got one of these?
    I placed a bid, thinking I'd just lose, but if you're not in, you can't win.
    Imagine my delight when I got the email that i'd won it.

    (This set is not my one in the picture, but the same deal.)

    Last week I received two nice items, but very different from each other.
    The first is a nice coin from Burundi from the Baby five series. I've been looking for a coin from Burundi for longer, but I really don't like their design in the African lion series. I managed to get this one for a reasonable price in an online auction. It came without the original box, but I think the price makes up for it. I really love the design on this one. The high relief combined with the antiquing really makes it pop out. In real life it looks a bit better than photos with the light playing of it.
    The other one is a cool item is native silver of a calcite base. Not for stacking of course, but nice to have the range of silver in it's original form, bars and coins. I love the fine detail on it.

    Also, five 2013 Great Britain 1/4 oz Silver Britannia SS Gairsoppa BU. Having a beautiful portrait of Britannia with the ship’s name as an edge inscription in a lasting tribute to Gairsoppa and her crew.

    I have seen one from  reputable Chinese dealer, without these plastic wrapper so it seems that the Shenyang Mint had different capsules.
