  1. There was always a chance of spotting something unusual at our fishing club competitions at Haverigg.
  2. We’re not known as the Woolybacks for nothing. Up the Woolybacks!
  3. Millom born and bred - left for University at 20, around 25 years ago. I carry the rain with me.
  4. I’m a very moderate leaver (almost a remainer in fact) and am open to a sensible compromise, but I find the refusal to accept the legitimacy of the leave victory impossible to defend.
  5. They vary over time. Been getting them for several years, most often £1, but frequently £2 or £3 also.
  6. Thieves with good taste. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/aug/07/thieves-strike-gold-after-taking-25m-in-coins-from-open-vault-at-mexican-mint?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other
  7. If 2011 was anything to go by, the appearance of news stories relting to gold will mark the end of the price increase.
  8. Buying proofs at proof prices from the Mint - 9 times out of 10 a loser. Buying pristine proofs in the secondary market at bullion prices - always a winner.
  9. Low mintage (500) pick up. The 2015 Royal Mint £25 Boris Johnson, sorry I meant Churchill, Proof coin with various London Mint provenance.

    Koala 10 oz

    I think 2015 was the last 10 oz, confirmed by the following: https://www.perthmint.com/documents/Mintages/Bullion/The Australian Koala Silver Bullion Coin Series 2007 - 2018.pdf
  11. Most British citizens have absolutely no reason to know the difference between a real and a pretend bullet. I must be a retard, because if I came across a bullet shaped object made of metal, there’s a tiny part of me that might think ‘that’s a bullet’. 😁

    When to sell?

    Not strictly true. Once a certain level of knowledge has been attained, there’s plenty of opportunity to make quick profits trading PM’s. This helps the longer term accumulation goal.
  13. What does it say on the roll?
  14. Small amounts, but I sold 5 Sovereigns and bought 100 1 oz silver rounds (first majestic) with the proceeds, an 85:1 ratio, which is pretty good considering the VAT associated with silver.
  15. Yes, been using these for years now. No problem at all.

    My genuine opinion is that I wouldn’t lock my money into a scheme that I didn’t fully understand for 2 years. I’d prefer to buy silver/gold, trade it for a couple of years and try to make my 40% that way.
