    Roy reacted to HighlandTiger in What is the best size gold to stack?   
    Any series of gold coins like the QB only holds its value whilst people still want them. Will they be collecting them in 30 years time, or will there be new things for collectors to collect. The collecting world is littered with "the next big thing", only to find when you try to sell a few years later that no one wants them.
     
    Remember, coin collecting, just like stamp collecting is a dying hobby, kids are just not interested in things like this anymore, (and these are the people you have to try and sell too). You only have to look at the average ages of customers at stamp and coin fairs to see this.
    Old coins like Sovs, will always have their collectors, the newer coins, not so much.

    Roy reacted to vand in Best PM advice video........   
    Don't worry about it. DR is solid for mainstream advice on eliminating debt and budgeting, but in order to *be" mainstream he has to keep his advice on investments mainstream, and so his advice will only ever reflect what public opinion is. You will not see him saying people should invest in commodities or PMs until we are in the last few years of the next commodities/PM bull market when it becomes a part of the average mom & pop's investment portfolio.
     
    TBH I think many on this forum should take something from this and diversify their assets into traditional tax-advantaged investments (bluntly, that means contributing to your pensions and ISAs), as I see too many who think that holding the majority of their wealth in PMs because they are too entrenched in the doomsday prepper scenario. I am as firm a believe in sound money as anyone, but I also take advantage of reclaiming as much of my earnings as I can by contributing to these.

    Dear Pampfan.
    Regards your request under the freedom of information act:
    Nobody here at the Mint has a clue as to what you are on about but Huw in accounts is well travelled and thinks he is able to translate for us.
    Firstly, mintages. 'A lot" we're told. We know this is true because of the amount of Poles that are sitting in our canteen. Most received their training with 'Pringles'. TM.
    There have been quality issues. Aled Jones, our production manager, says the beasts have 'been a right bastard' to produce but as always sings the praises of our production team and looks forward to his imminent retirement. 
    Angharad in sales comments, 'I'm not being funny but to tell you the truth, sales of the the proofs have been tidy!'
    We asked her to make a statement on the the level of returns but received a curt 'no comment bach'.
    We hope you find this response satisfactory and look forward to your next purchase from us.
    Best regards,
    Gwen from HR xx

    Roy reacted to sovereignsteve in Fake Krugerrands or Just Low Gold Content?   
    Regardless of your thoughts on their motives. It is self promotion and there is nothing wrong with that.
    They position themselves as a bullion dealer but foremost as a coin dealer of long standing that has gone out of its  way to educate as well as supply.
    Of course that also has an element of promotion and business sense about it, but it does make them stand out from the crowd.
    This episode has been a useful report, conducted in pseudo-scientific manner and shows a willingness to refer matters to a more expert centre to help elucidate matters if necessary.
    The only thing I would say is they should have waited until they had the final answer before rushing to print.🙄
