    lidl and aldi christmas specials can be amazing and that is where those came from, always worth keeping some cash aside for them:)

    I think they make them every year so i would be looking for something more exclusive, these were a good buy not sure on auction prices but they cost £100 on amazon at retail - i just grabbed one at the time.

    Auction sites are also a good place to look at. Like ebay, you can see previous sells of the item so you can see if a specific item has gone up in value over time.

    Also this is my collection- its mostly rum and cognac. My taste moved from rum, to cognac but has now drifted towards whisky. Still enjoy rum and cognac but I feel i know what i like now. I want to start to invest/collect aswel as drink so any tips would be really appreciated. where would you sell a bottle? How would you price it? How would you pick it? I’ve always thought the dated single barrel bottles would be good investments as theres a limited amount and they soon become unavailable. Thanks in advance.

    Id recommend getting whisky that they have stopped making. Also get drinks you tjink youd like. Incase it doesnt sell, atleast you can drink it.
    Japanese aged whiskies are a good place. They stopped making aged due to the low supply to demand. I bought my hibiki 12 just over a year ago for £120. Auction, it goes for atleast double that, close to £300
    To sell, i would say auction is best place althoug there are fees so always keep that in mind.

    Picked up a 15 year Redbreast from the Whisky Exchange in London a couple weeks ago. The bottle is now long gone but it was exceptional. Was great being in the shop you could easily spend a fortune!

    Bought myself a bottle of blue label today from Costco seeing as the price has been dropped on it. Should be a nice blend which I expect it to be for the price. I 've worked my way up through the different labels to this  one but not brave enough to go for the dearer ones.....yet!

    Nooo i love it! I went to 6 different countries last year (7 if you include the vatican). And all over this country on various trips which were great.
     I spent a good few years with my head purely focused on work and not much else and its a relief and a release to be able to go and experience something new.
    If thats how you feel about travel id say just try something/somehwere new! Its not all about sandy beaches OR traipsing around some boring foreign museum!
    Each to their own though!

    Love travelling , as @AuricGoldfinger says don't be sucked in to museums and other supposed must see places when you get there if that's not what interests you.  Although I'm now of a age where I also like a nice hotel when abroad I try to stay away from tourists - drink in locals bars , eat in locals restuarants and travel like locals do . I avoid Irish bars and organised tours like the plague.

    AuricGoldfinger got a reaction from mr1030 in Gold Monitoring Thread £ GBP only   
    Yes but gold is priced in USD. Then the current exchange rate for instance in my case USD to GBP determine the value of MY gold. Thats why when the pound is weak against the dollar the value of MY gold has gone up - even if the ACTUAL price of gold priced in USD has stayed the same. The pricing in USD is just the standard that we work to so everyone is singing of the same hymn sheet.

    chartist price gold in usd(currently) cos they want to know how
    the global price trend of gold is moving. pricing it in any other
    currency just introduces more variables.
    eg if £ drops by 10% versus $ and many other currencies. (for
    arguments sake) £ has 10% inflation so £1.10 is required to
    buy what was previously priced at £1.00. let's say gold goes up
    by 5%(usd) due to uncertainty. gold in £'s has gone up by 15%
    but only cos £ has weakened. the amount of gold required to
    buy a tailored suit my now be 0.95 toz as opposed to 0.85toz.
    ie gold as a store of value has increased by 5% and not 15%.
     
    currently pricing gold in usd gives the clearest picture of any of
    the currencies available. it's more a practical thing to price gold
    in usd.

    This is one of the latest Seamasters, i think its likely to be the next bond watch. (This isn’t mine its a sneaky pic i took when i tried it on!)
    It also has a crystal back and i think its a new movement to the previous Seamasters. I tried it on the day it came out and loved it. Good value aswel compared to what Rolex are trying to charge for a their models with a rubber strap.

    This year i purchased what i would describe as my “dream watch”. It’s not something i wear every day but its something I appreciate every second it’s on my wrist. I’ve wanted it since before i had a pot to piss in as they say so to me it was a really special purchase. Plus... ITS GOLD!

    So @Madstacks if you think you will get £1000 worth of enjoyment out of it then i say go for it!

    AuricGoldfinger got a reaction from JunkBond in Bullion Vs Numismatic as a long term investment?   
    I’d personally stick to bullion, or the likes of QB coins which are close enough in price to their standard bullion counter parts ie Brits. When your buying numismatic your no longer investing in PMs which are determined by a spot price. It’s determined by whats someone is willing to pay. Finding a buyer when you want to liquidate may be more difficult, demand may have changed etc.
    Just my personal view, everyone is different, i like being able know how many Ozs i hold and easily work out how much it’s worth compared to how much i paid.
