    ahhhhh - he got there in the end!
    Buachaille is gaelic for shepherd, Beag is small, Buachaille Etive Beag literally means the Small Shepherd of Etive, but is often referred to as the "Wee Buckle"
    Buachaille Etive Mor is the grand or Big Shepherd of Etive, the "Big Buckle" - iconic mountain, which anyone that has see Skyfall will have seen
    CONGRATULATIONS to MickD - A spontaneous competition means he's the winner of a £20 coin (PM me your address please and I will get it in the post to you next week as soon as I can get to a post office)
    Happy Friday coinsters

    Fastnick reacted to SouthCoastInvestor in COin bars silver   
    Another option to consider is the 10 oz coins.  A few months ago I bought 20x 10 oz Queens Beast falcon  griffin coins, and the price for that bulk purchase (from goldsilver.be) was comparable to the equivalent weight in coin bars - hence the best value bullion and VAT-free. I would expect 10 oz coins of a good collectable series (such as Queen's Beasts) to be easier to sell  in the future (and potentially at a premium to spot) than coin bars, which have no numismatic interest. 
    FYI the Royal Mint 10 oz coin "monster box" contains 15 coins, arranged as 5 layers of three coins mounted on cardboard and shrink-plastic wrapped. I put some anti-tarnish strips into the monster box, sealed the edges with strong tape and wrapped that in a bin liner for long term storage.
    The benefit of the 10 oz QB coins for UK investors is that they will be capital gains tax free when it comes to sell them (assuming the current law does not change).

    Guys and gals....
    Your words of thanks truly humble Mrs BYB and I. We don't do it for the credit, but your kind words really make a difference.
    The true achievement here is not that we organised it, it is that as a community we raised £1662.50 for a very worthy charity.
    Next year we want to do even better!
    So, put aside £1 per month and in a years time you will have enough for 2 entries and some change!
    Also, pick out some shiny things to donate, the more prizes the bigger this gets!
    Well done all!

    You wanna get something like Nord or cyberghost vpn if you have to use public Wi-Fi a lot. Costs next to nothing.
