    Mint in Rarotonga?

    Hi All Flying from Sydney to LA and spending a couple of days in Rarotonga (Cook Islands). Does anyone know if there is a mint outlet there for precious metal coins? I have head that there is a place for special Cook island stamps, but that’s not my bag! Many thanks Dicker

    Gold. Where do I start?

    The Britannia Oriental Border does seem to sell for more then the QB Bull of Clarence in 1Oz form. E.g Atkinson’s I suspect both will be a good investment.

    Wedding Rings ???

    I couldn’t bring myself to buy my wife a diamond engagement ring so I bought her a pair of 20 bore shotguns. As for a wedding ring, I bought a wedding band from goldsmiths - simple and effective. All the very best dicker

    Fake Morgans

    I suspect you are right - sad state of affairs but cheap labour and, cheap mass production technology probably means we have more fakes now than ever. Some seem to be rubbish but there is a definite trend toward much higher quality fakes Dicker

    Fake Morgans

    I have long been interested in counterfeits, mules and errors. The link is from a website I read - not precious metals but this is very interesting I have not seen a fake like this before. Best Dicker http://www.thefakepoundcoindatabase.co.uk/FAKES/!OTHERS/Z-1884OMORGANError.html
  7. Hi all i am in WA in a couple of months time to spend time with my wife’s family. I am keen to do something other than spend time with the family and am looking at metal detecting tours - will probably only do one time in my life. Has anyone (yup I know it is u likely...) done this before? Any feedback? Best Dicker
  8. Hi All Firstly I have to admit to being an investment banker, nearly retired and previously what some of you would know as a merchant banker. Everyone has a very valid opion, and I much enjoy reading this thread because of the breadth of opinion which makes me think and consider. I am a metals man, because it fits into my portfolio and I increase and decrease when I think it prudent to do so. Markets rise and fall, but at the end of the day, I sincerely believe balance is incredibly important, and by that I mean balancing metals, equity debt instruments property I do not see the sort of liquidity crisis recurring but corrections and crashes are a definite. I hold equities in companies I value - In the long term this is a proven strategy for growth, and irrespective of corrections and crashes it just works. As per any investment pound/dollar cost is a good way to buy assets and manage out price risk All the best Dicker Hi All Firstly I have to admit to being an investment banker, nearly retired and previously what some of you would know as a merchant banker.

    Fake 1oz maple?????

    There are some very obvious fakes on eBay and some less so. The ones that I find very tricky to determine if fake or not are the Indian head 2.5 Dollar coins. Caveat emptor

    Royal Mint Proof Coins

    Many thanks Lord alone knows what my wife’s deceased relative was doing collecting this sort of stuff - leatherette boxes and COA’s! Not my scene at all so very happy to help her to sell it all.

    Royal Mint Proof Coins

    Hi My wife inherited 250 Royal Mint Silver Proof coins “collectors” type coins - one pound piedforts, collectors sets etc. She had no attachment to them and is considering selling - well getting me to sell them for her on eBay... very painful no doubt. Has anyone successfully disposed of this amount of coins in a relatively low hassle manner? I know how to sell bullion, but these are a little different. Best regards and thanks in advance Dicker
