    KDave got a reaction from augur in Newb Question - Old Sovs Vs New Sovs   
    New Coins
    - Relatively low mintage compared to older dates. May or may not be a factor in the future.
    - Look horrible, like copper pennies.
    Old Coins
    - Lots of collectable coins
    - Lots of history you can research and keep you interested
    - Lots of options to get you into collecting them, different mints, different monarchs
    - They actually look like gold, even the bashed up ones look nice compared to the brand new shiny penny horrible welsh mint sovereigns - in my opinion!

    You also have the RIGHT to live in your birth country and the right to expect it has not been turned into a 1984 Big Brother tyranny.
    Millions have died thinking they were fighting to defend our freedoms.
    Sadly those who fought they were simply in a blood sacrifice dying for the banks and elites.  Nevertheless their memories should be defended and we should not roll over and accept this.

    So at least 2 UK MEP's will be voting against- i recommend people send an email copied to all the MEP's in their area saying this new EU directorship legislation needs to be voted down.

    KDave got a reaction from Tn21 in End game / why stack / why collect   
    A great topic. 
    I can't answer for other people but I buy physical silver to take a punt on its future value in other goods - probably relative to stocks and shares or another asset type. I stack because I am not confident that the conditions that will lead to silver being valuable relative to other assets will be kind to paper claims on silver, or whether those will have any value at all at that time. In my dream world I will sell to someone who wants silver via a middle man (dealer) who will pay me for my silver so he can sell it on to the people at a profit. There are always buyers. 
    Silvers value in terms of what it can purchase is what matters. If everything remains equal in terms of cost of resources to mine an ounce of silver in 10 years and population remains static, and demand/supply balance remains static, you have the same value in 10 years as you do now. How likely is that? I think silver will at least be more expensive to mine in 10 years, probably due to the cost of energy (oil) to extract it and failing that, the amount of additional energy that will be required to access harder to get deposits. Even if we half the cost of energy, if silver is twice as hard to find and mine you are breaking even. Then add population growth. Then add potential for increased demand for silver. That is why it 'preserves purchasing power' but there are no guarantees, the opposite in theory could happen, demand could fall off a cliff because we find something to replace silver in components or don't need as much any more per capita. 
    Financial crisis is a good reason for holding physical as I said above (not paper), but a crisis is not necessary to at least preserve purchasing power as I have demonstrated above. Stocks do not need to crash for silver to do well. Perhaps not as well as other assets - you should diversify.
    Silver has no yield but that is because it is a commodity and some argue it is money like gold. I am in agreement with this, but it is not the best form of commodity based money, that would be the role of gold. I will explain this in another thread when I have the time.

    Nobody is suggesting that certain regimes got a bad rap.
    I personally find it strange that  Nazi symbols such as the Swastika are reviled but the Hammer and Sickle or the Red Star are somehow acceptable or less bad than a Swastika.

    seriously?
    sounds to me like the "liberal"/"socialist" reaction of shouting opponents down when they dare try to open discussions on topics you don't like. If you disagree with someone just call them fascist, racist, ****phobic etc, just pick one.
    I take it you want to be the one who decides what we can all discuss?

    Nothing is taboo.
    There are two types of topics, one where you are knowledgable, you talk and people listen.
    And one where you know nothing, people talk and you listen.
    I do smile though, who knew what a 'Nazi Silver' topic would become?
    What about 'Rolf Harris paintings'?

    I'm a bit surprised the thread has gone this far. Discussion and debate are all well and good, but there are some things i strongly feel people do not have any rights whatsoever to debate or question, no matter how educated, entitled, or enlightened we think we are.
    So on a lighter tongue-in-cheek note - could someone maybe, out of the blue, find some reason to complain about Chards, and have the hammer finally brought down?

    I do understand that the topic has gone a bit, but I am surprised by the emotional responses to the discussions here, it is quite sad that people are not able to openly discuss a subject without people calling for censure, or responding with how outraged and disgusted they 'feel' instead of joining the discussion and arguing the facts. We have had good respectful discussion on the forum in the past on a range of subjects some along similar 'touchy' lines, entertainment purposes and we learn, so what is so different about this? Perhaps we have found the forums limit; politics, religion and mass murder all together are the ultimate bane to polite internet conversation? 😄
    Early in the thread someone mentioned that there will be people reading that could contribute, but will not for fear of the reaction. I see what is meant now, but the reactions here I don't understand. Just because someone discusses a point of view about a subject doesn't mean that person must follow it, and by conclusion in this case - deny the holocaust for gods sake. You can entertain an idea without accepting it - it is the mark of an educated mind they say!
