    Buying gold in the UK

    If you want 1/10 ounce gold coins then getting them via the group order from goldsilver.be is an option - especially if you’re happy to not worry about the full £6 insured postage for the odd coin. Ironically, it’s evidence from the lunar rocks the Apollo missions collected that helps explain why there’s so much gold in the crust. It arrived by meteorite after most of the Earth’s original gold reserves sank to the core while the planet was molten. Enough gold in the core to cover the planet’s surface more than a foot deep - that’s a lot of ounces!

    wanted 1g Gold Bars

    I bought a 1g Perth bar recently and it's a very beautiful little object. I'm interested in collecting a little set of 1g bars from each of the main mints (Degussa, Pamp, Umicore etc). It's the collector side of me, not the investor, that likes these! Thanks, P

    I got my first 1g gold bar from Lea79 and a 2oz Lion from Kamikaze. Really interested what everyone thinks of the bar. At 1g they’re a high premium over spot, but can be resold with that premium - however lots of people don’t seem to like them. Also think the Perth Mint packaging offsets the metal beautifully. The black and gold looks gorgeous and really adds to my enjoyment of the item. Think some other bar manufacturers could up their presentation game! I don’t plan to collect many this size, but they’re relatively cheap and attractive objects.

    The price of silver

    If you look at long term global trends, population is increasing, living standards are increasing therefore industrial demand for silver goes up. Combine that with potential increasing extraction costs and a limited supply in the planet’s crust and over the years the price can only go one way.
  10. No skipping the country

    Today I Received.....

    Got my first silver Panda. Purchased from eBay due to nectar points and a PayPal offer. I've also got some testing magnets and scales on order just in case, but the seller had a lot of positive feedback, so here's hoping it's real. Beautiful design though. Definitely keen to get a few different years now I've got this one.

    Love the 2018 Pandas @Hyunchul - where did you get them from?
  15. The NHS will introduce artificial intelligence software next year to diagnose cancer, self-driving cars are 10 years away from taking over the roads and robots can already do many precision tasks better than us. In 30 years it’s likely the majority of people could be replaced at work by machines. What happens then? If machines undercut labour costs, what happens to global currencies when no-one has an income from work? It will redefine society. What happens to PM in this world? With their cultural value (and industrial) it seems that gold and silver should retain meaning as world currencies fluctuate. I won’t retire for more than three decades so these changes will impact hugely on my old age. But no-one is really talking about it. What do you think?
