    All I can say is that you are batsh*t crazy to be running that far...I did the Nijmegan 4 day 50km a day (3 times) walk and the Belgium March of Death 100kms in exactly 24 hours....kudos sir...kudos.....
    My missus had a chunk of lung taken out due to a brush with cancer and our kid was only a year old when she had to go into hospital for a couple of weeks.....donated a tenner to the cause. Good luck ! Your feet are gonna look like pizza by the end of it...
    Also did some charity work for the beads of courage connected organisation “Shine on! Kids” at a fancy big roller American Club where we raised a couple hundred thousand at a posh event....got em drunk, entertained and fed and did auctions etc.  These are people who can write it off as a tax loss (would have gone to the gov in taxes anyway) as they are rich thank goodness. For the liitle people, it comes straight out of our pockets so thank you to all who have gone the extra mile....pun intended....
    Good luck fella !

    Sold out pretty much everywhere as well as the donut. Time will tell if the coin maintains a premium. eBay has a few for sale but few if any at issue price. Probably a US market primarily as I don't think many foreigners watched or still watch the Simpsons.

    Really impressed with this series and I'm not even a big star wars fan! I think changing up the characters would be really cool. One of the coins that definitely look much better in-hand as opposed to the stock photos

    I will probably get flamed but that is one ugly bar. Baird, PAMP, Perth, Engelhard, Degussa, JM, now those are classy bars. Simple and elegant make a great bar. There is WAY to much design going on in that bar. Its like they had to much thought into it... Sorry, love my Britannia's but that thing is hideous.

    Wackattak924 reacted to STONE in Britannia 2017 20 OZ PF69 PRICE CHECK   
    Ungraded they are going for around $1400. A PF70 UC should fetch top dollar but this coin already has a few negatives going on. The design wasn't very popular for starters and now they make a 20 oz. version which reduces the quantifiable buyers market by even less. Your now trying to sell a coin to a subset of a subset of possible buyers. There is a reason MCM still has them in stock, its a very small few who actually want that coin. The royal mint still has the one ounce and five ounce 2017's IN STOCK!  That tells me they are VERY unpopular. Only 7500 one ounce minted and they have only sold 65% of the original stock. That is pathetic!  Don't fall for mintage numbers either its all a sales gimmick. If they mint a coin that has a mintage number of 10 and nobody wants it, it really becomes irrelevant. If you really want to know what a coin is worth, before you buy it, call around to the places you would sell to and see how much they will pay you for it. Call MCM tomorrow and tell them you have that coin in that same configuration and ask them what they will pay you for it. Prepare to be shocked because what you can sell it for is what it is really worth. In fact I challenge everyone on this forum to do that exact exercise BEFORE every purchase. It keeps things in perspective. Liquidity should be at the forefront of every purchase...
    Right now I can get 111 one ounce 2019 silver Brits for $2000.00   Which is better? 20oz. or 111ozs.?  Even if a guy were never to sell and pass it down to his kids, in 40 years at that ratio they would have thousands of ounces of extremely liquid coins instead of a bunch of one off hard to sell trinket's.

    Wackattak924 reacted to richatthecroft in Britannia 2017 20 OZ PF69 PRICE CHECK   
    Mmm- around £74 per oz plus shipping and Import duties- This years Britannia 1Kg works out significantly less per oz at around £65 oz with a 115 mintage- and we don't blink an eyelid paying for our favourite 1oz Proof Silver coins at £40- £50- £60- £85 per oz!- and not forgetting the RM just sold 25K units of the Gruffalo in only a few hours-  at over three times the price per oz as the coin you are asking for views of pricing!    
    For me, these very special coins and for that matter, any object 'scarce' and unique are worth what people are prepared to pay- the right man/woman who desires the coin/object will pay what it takes to get it- I've attended sale-rooms and watched online auctions in disbelief on many an occasion, as the hammer falls at what I would think is a hugely inflated price- but then again, I'm certain that I have paid far, far in excess of what an item is actually 'worth' on more than one occasion.  
    Not helpful to you-  but I don't think you can put a very accurate price guide on this type of coin- I'm guessing it cost around this price the day it was minted- not my favourite design, but each to their own.  These items are not sold because they are good value or in terms of intrinsic value.

    Just wait a while. I'm sure they will be available at Aurinum.de or some other sites soon. It's brand new and has a mintage of 25.000. I don't think it will sell as quickly as the Homer SImpson coin.

    Hi from Australia, everyone!
    I'm a British expat currently living in Australia. I'm not so new to silver and gold investment but new to stacking physical coins and bullion - totally hooked, never thought I'd be visiting coin shows at weekends and here I am 😲  (Actually, I went to my first this weekend and the first stall I looked at I picked up a couple of YPS gems at a great price...so far so good!).
    Anyway, glad to be here and looking forward to lots of interesting discussions and maybe even trades one day!
