    AuricGoldfinger got a reaction from Cking83 in Full Stack / Full Collection Photos   
    Better late than never, only just had a chance to get everything together. Full gold stack, been exactly 6months, im 2 sovs shy of aprox 30oz which is my short term target. Will continue to pick up the remaining beasts and also some sovs but slowing down a lot unless theres a major dip in prices as have other projects starting soon.

    If house prices are dropping and there are lots of people falling behind with mortgage payments, there is no point the banks repossessing properties, because there is no market to sell them into, and prices will only fall further if they try. Banks don't want lots of vacant properties on their books, because of the cost of insurance and maintenance, and the risk of vandalism. Sitting tight and hoping prices recover and payments resume is usually the best bet. The big problem is that the extent of the price falls and the arrears can go unreported. A bank's balance sheet may look healthy, but who is to say whether its mortgage book is worth what it claims to be, or what proportion of loans will be delinquent. The drawback of bailing out banks is that they are allowed to continue doing buiness even though they would be technically insolvent if they were compelled to value their assets realistically.

    Thank you for the advice. I totally agree and would only use my liquid savings to speculate in such a way. These savings are the ones that tend to be labelled "holiday fund for when my wife is fed up with the cold weather" or "wife's shoe fund" hence why I would rather spend it on silver.

    Understandably getting overwhelmed with all of the Sovereign varieties lately...and seemingly nothing special from a historical perspective to drive these varieties for 2019, other than the proof and BU versions.
    However, got to hand it to The Royal Mint in coming up with a little uniqueness of a bygone era with the Matt coinage. The last year of a more common, still scarce, Matt Proof was 1902. Yes, I know, the 2019 are Matt BU, but still. All other years of Matt Proof Sovs are extremely rare, all the way to the last minted year for a Matt Proof in 1965. 
    Also true, the 20,000 “limited presentation” mintage is a little off putting, but still, I think it is an attractive variety not seen in post-decimalization. 
    And besides...maybe now I can finally take a decent photo of a Gold Sovereign without having to get frustrated over the lighting!😃

    Here’s my handling collection! Fondling your assets gives you that gold fix we all need. Not everything has to be locked into plastic. The gold 3.2oz cast bar does it for me, with the ‘buffalo’ in support - with 2 great sides to the coin. Just feel those sharp edges.... Phew!

    I had plans to visit Dubai Gold Souk before we left but unfortunately the opportunity did not pan out so never got to see any gold 😔. Next time...... Some stackers on YouTube visited Dubai and purchased Gold and reviewed the process.
