    I bought another small old bit of silver, only AU58 but the second finest at NGC - knowing my luck the better one will now appear at auction in the next 6 months which would be the first time in about 15 years!
    So tempted by a bullion sovereign but the numismatist in me won out😀

    Mrs BYB and I bought some sovereigns for 97.65% of spot price - and they arrived already!
    First time ever using BBP and it was because of a 15% eBay voucher!

    Couldn't wait for postie to arrive today, I did a wee bit of spending over the last couple of days, here's the spoils ...
    Big thanks to Goldmick for the 1/10oz Britannia Proof, I love it, so crisp, clean and cute.
    I also couldn't resist another HGM bullion lucky dip, it's kind of addictive not knowing what you're going to get, very pleased with the delivery.

    I agree that better to own the real deal in terms of shipwreck gold/silver or historic Pirate/ Roman treasures.  But still it’s quite a bit of fun owning even a recast piece of history.  
    Although I have just sold it here on the Forum, that little 10oz SS Gairsoppa Bar when it arrived in the post, facilitated a good 2 hours of conversation with my youngest lad of 17.  So much more fulfilling than the occasional grunt I know and love!

    I prefer it as its recovered, once its been melted down, refined and recast its lost its shipwreck status for me.

    You just set up a blockchain with 24,000 coins (Gairosoppa coin)
    1 coin = £1 = 1 share of the silver bar.
    Fully transparent and secure and people can easily buy and sell.

    Yes -Don Bailey sadly passed away recently. But given time, i'm sure his wife or son-in-law will keep Don's site updated. http://news.coinupdate.com/don-bailey-dean-of-mexican-numismatics-has-passed-away/
    With the randomness of libertad mintages - the Mint apparently has to strictly keep to Mexican legislation which allows them only to use Mexican mined silver. They cannot import. Ironically, one of the largest silver producing countries and the majority of their mines are either foreign or privately owned and the silver exported, so the mint juggle each year when sourcing their silver.
    Sometimes word leaks out that they are having a harder time sourcing. As it did in 2014. A lot of collectors beelined for the 2oz & 5oz proofs as soon as they appeared. Just 500 & 550 singles respectively.
