  1. Thanks
    Martlet got a reaction from Byronvan in Any one used goldsilver.be ?   
    Having used both, have no complaints.  Both have issues with some coin quality, thats down to what the mints send out.  However GS is my preferred site simply for range.

    Yeah you have to watch those postage fees, as some of the cheapest coins have highest delivery costs.   May work out when buying multiple coins, for single coins it can be a big rise in the paid premium.  And watch for the "from" pricing on websites, which are for 10+ or higher, while single digit coins are £10 more.

    Martlet got a reaction from Cking83 in Royal Mints Sapphire Coronation 5 Oz Silver Proof Coin   
    The first thing to consider is where you want to be on the stacker-collector spectrum.  Stackers look for the cheapest silver, collectors look for sets and coins of interest. 
    The coin you refer to is quite a nice design, it does mark a pretty unique occasion.  At £415 😲 its a very steep premium, and a large cash outlay to enter the world of collecting.  Shame they dont seem to do a 1 or 2oz versions.  There are 1 and 1oz coins with a different design, i'd look at those and 2-300 worth of regular coins to kick of the hobby.

    Talk of Third Reich memorabilia turns to holocaust denial. And that precisely why some prefer to censor the subject, because no good comes of it.  Which is a shame because the artefacts and history are just as valid as any other period.

    Indeed. The supermarket killed the High Street. 
    No need to ask for 'fork handles' and poor old Granville on his bike. The butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker either went out of business or became specialised (i.e. expensive).

    A note on using anti-tarnish, they only do anything if exposed to air from which they absorb pollutants.  So placing them in a sealed pack is a bit redundant.  Put some in the box with your vac-seal packs.

    maybe Andres is the son, maybe he doesn't exist, maybe Friedhelm doesn't exist, maybe it was all a con to start with? The Dr title to gain respectability, the disabled son to gain sympathy etc?
    Who knows who you are dealing with over the internet? Maybe I'm a woman who hates sovereigns?🤣
    Nice new smilies btw

    Martlet reacted to RoughDog in Gold premiums   
    I ran a program to compiled a quick list of gold coins available at Atkinsons ordered by premium.
    Thought it would be useful info for people when deciding a coin to purchase based on premium for the amount of money to spend.
    This assumes that the gold content on the site is correct.
    Looks like old Freddy Kruger is the cheapest. 😁😁😁

    Interesting comments in Telegram overnight about the life cycle of a coin.  Revenue can only be made from those coins in circulation, why on earth would the destroyed coins be entitled to yield from them?  Open to abuse if one can mint new coins, redeem/destroy them and mint them again, receive income in perpetuity.

    Excellent.  I'm thinking a large unmovable* safe in the garage is better idea than trying to hide one thats bolted to wall, which probably isnt as substantial as hoped.  Certainly looks better and you can tell people its just for novelty. 
    (*for regular thief.  anyone prepared is going to defeat most safe so you rely on the insurance imo).

    Maybe look for one at a local auction and have a plan how to move it.
    If you buy one, make sure it comes with a key.

    It would be more accurate to say gold standard currencies ended, rather than failed.  Though there is a real question over why they ended, was it not in some cases to avoid failure?
    We cant really say that all fiat currencies have failed either, since there a few around, and many ended due to government failure not the currencies themselves.

    Queens Beasts series look good, both silver and gold.  Minimal premiums new (assuming silver purchased from suitable EU sources) and gain some collector premium in a couple of years. They have interesting images, nothing terrible or controversial, and some story, things count towards collectability and future premium.

    Brexit is complicated.  The referendum was technically "advisory" and there was never any provision for how we might leave.  The official party line and that followed by both major party leaderships is that we will leave, except they dont know what the new relationship should look like and the EU, adept at game theory, is making it as difficult as possible.  As a life long euro-sceptic I have given up on the whole thing, as the idealist who drove Brexit dont appear to have bothered to think it through.  With them in charge, frankly we're probably better off staying in.
