  1. Just a reminder that the Gruffalo coins are released at midnight tonight. Anyone staying up late? I might be in for a silver proof if they've got 'em

    £1 sold for £5000 ?

    I've got one of those £1 coins. If anyone wants it I'll accept £4995 😀

    Anyone like Chess?

    I kind of expected that I image-searched the picture and found a company called powercoin.it pre-saleing it for €290 which is a bit much for the silver in it but I kind of want one. I imagine the delivery would be pretty expensive too though.

    I have always been fascinated by treasure hoards that are occasionally dug up in the countryside and so on. In 2007 a more recent hoard was discovered in a garden in Hackney- a jam jar full of American gold double eagles was dug up. It turned out it was put there by a German Jewish refugee in WW2. The Museum of London tracked down their descendants and handed over the gold. Must have been a nice surprise. I like to think I am an honest chap but really I'm not sure what I would do if I ever discovered a treasure like that. Especially if nobody else was around at the time. There's an interesting book called "Hoards: Hidden History" by Eleanor Ghey published by the British Museum that I highly recommend to anyone else who is similarly fascinated. Picture is of the Hackney hoard.

    I guess many of us who collect/stack silver and gold probably have a little bit of the "hoarder gene"- I certainly do and if I didn't keep it in check, then instead of living with my wife and a few thousand books I'd be living here alone with several million books. Of course with some people it gets a bit out of control and the result is videos like this- a Canadian antique shop owner buys a hoarder's house and spends weeks clearing out all the stuff... following the story through the set of videos is fascinating.

    Silver in London

    On Charing Cross Road at the National Portrait Gallery end there is a little coin shop. As far as I know It has been there for years and I have peeped in the window but I have never actually been inside the shop. Does anyone know it? I've been in the ice cream shop next door though and that is highly recommended 😀

    Plan B

    No they don't. No "expert" claims this. Maybe some nut with a Youtube channel might.

    When I Google the words it leads me here: https://md5hashing.net/hash/md5x2/376fa84f6b669da686533638128c5fee So are the first and last words dedicated and reduce?

    Grand Solar Minimum

    Meanwhile Australia has had its hottest month ever with bushfires raging and animals dying from the heat in their thousands. If you're using one of Trump's loopy tweets to bolster your argument, you're really scraping the barrel.

    Need help with Excel

    It's possible but you'll need to do some work in VBA. There are some web services that return the spot price of precious metals. Some are free, some aren't. This one is free but you need to register: http://www.freewebservicesx.com/SilverPrice.aspx You can call a web service like the one above in VBA and display the output in an Excel sheet. There are some guides on how to do that on sites like Stack Overflow: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/474936/call-web-service-in-excel Somewhere I've got a spreadsheet that gets share prices from the web in a similar manner, I'll see if I can find it.

    Fakebook strikes again

    I don't have a "real" Facebook account (i.e. in my own name) but I do have about a dozen accounts that I use for a variety of nefarious purposes 😈
