    AllThingsShiny reacted to CoinFinders in Will gold become unaffordable, if so, when? Opinions welcome.   
    AH!  I love this topic.  I was actively trading gold in the 2000 time frame.  It was $275-ish an ounce, and the pundits were saying that an astronomical $500 per ounce was unheard of and unsustainable.  "No way gold is going double!"  So I bought more.  And more after that.  And I kept a good chunk of it.  Frankly IMO, it's all relative.  For the daily folks like ourselves, $65 gram gold seems a high price, but guess what?  The market will adapt and there will be organizations to manufacture/sell fractionated gold to keep up.  When the 1/20th ounce gold coins came out, I said -- really?  Who is going to buy those?  Turns out the 1/20th market (though still modest) is doing OK.  The 1/10th market is great -- you can't find this stuff anymore.
    What about silver?  That too will increase in importance as gold (PT and the rest) become "unaffordable."  I see where a couple of the major private mints are making 1/10, 1/4 and 1/2 oz silver coins.  RCM has a series of 1.5oz silver coins.  And 5 and 10oz silver coins.  Bottomline:  the markets and individual buying patterns will adjust to the new normal.  Just as it's done for the last 2000+ years or so.  Thanks from Scotty at CoinFinders

    You have very modest dreams. It is only £1,000 and of that the gold content is £522.
    This is my dream coin gold content approx £1,000 and cost is £738,000.

    Vintage shaving stuff - some of which I use and some I keep. Started off because I wanted a cheap alternative to gillette mach 3 cartridges and I found double edge blades much cheaper and also better for my skin. Well engineered razors still in perfect condition decades later combined with ephemeral counterparts: blades, soaps and aftershaves. 
    Got a real thing about Goya - the British budget perfume brand. Did two cracking men's fragrances - Corvette and Cedarwood - and I have a few shaving sets from them.

    So, this week I have been subtly sharing some black and white photos of a very pretty bar. That is because the colour is not your usual white metal!
    Courtesy of @Lr103 I have been experimenting with pouring gold!
    A video of the whole experience will be out tomorrow and I will share it with you all here.
    Here is the very first attempt....

    Not so good, so I chopped it up and tried again!
    And here is the bar fresh from the furnace....

    My leaf stamp compliments the ripples perfectly!
    2.24 oz of 999+ gold!
    We have sent it up to the Edinburgh Assay Office for hallmarking (likely done by laser!)

    And here is a companion bar made to be the same size....but because it is silver it is about half the weight!

    Thank you to @Lr103 for putting your faith (and money!) in my skills, I am truly humbled!
    I also have the gold pouring bug....so watch this space.....
    If only gold wasn't so damn expensive!
