What I am collecting / Investing in.

  1. Paid over $1500 for this 1 ounce of 99.99 Perth Mint gold from APMEX in January 2020. I was skeptical about its authenticity, so I conducted a test to see whether this alleged 1 ounce of gold is truly diamagnetic. However, test results seem to show that this bar of gold from APMEX isn't diamagnetic; in fact, instead of being repelled by the earth magnets, it is attracted to them. Suspicious. Below is a YouTube video: Images https://ibb.co/dWhcGhw https://ibb.co/Zh6b50n https://ibb.co/C9hz4z1 https://ibb.co/HhCdWmy Thoughts? Perhaps I performed the test incorrectly?
  2. So, I won an auction on great collections today for a 1913-m sovereign greater MS63 by NGC and paid about $330 for it. Did I get a good deal and it a key date for the sovereign series? I’m really curious about the different sovereigns and their mints which produced them.
  3. Hi Guys. I am an ex-Pat living in Oz half my life now and joined here because YOUTUBE pointed me at the Backyard Bullion Video advertising the pour. Sounds like a great idea! Probably a bit uneconomical if its sent here mind you. I am just looking into now. I have held significant Gold in the past, I now have minimum silver and sticking that for now due to tight finances and belief it will really fly! Cheers
  4. For a good portion of the summer I stopped buying any coins, gold or silver, proof or bullion, because I felt a bit overwhelmed by all the series that are available. There's the Chinese Panda series, the Chinese Lunar series, the Britannia Series (my personal favorite, but not much love from a lot of collectors nowadays), the Great Britain Lunar series, the Perth Lunar series, the Canadian Lunar series, the Rwandan Lunar series (these are quite lovely, but I didn't set aside cash for them or buy any 😥), the Canada Predator series, the Kangaroos, the Kookaburras, the Saltwater Crocodiles, the Birds of Paradise, the Emus, and the Sharks. The Queen's Beasts, the Lion Dollars, and the Bisons. Not to mention the Ukrainian Archangels, the Isle of Man Nobles, the Niue hawksbills, superheroes, and star wars coins. Colorized coins, incuse coins, concave coins, egg shaped coins, coins that are square, coins that have scalloped edges, and privy marks on everything! Just tossing a discussion out to the Forum in general. Does anyone else feel overwhelmed by all of these? Are there forum members that have culled down their collections and eliminated collecting certain series? If so, which series are you avoiding or stopping?
  5. I have a coin (Australian naturally) graded by this service. I had not heard of it and from what I can see it did not last long. Has anyone heard of it? Was it well regarded or not - presumably not if it died a death. I am assuming it used the US Sheldon system of grading but does anyone know? Thanks
  6. Another coin copyright/patent issue! The first coin that had some copyright controversy was the Isle of Man "Britannia Rules The Waves" coin where the motto was an infringement on the UK Royal Mint's Property rights. I don't fully know the legal issues other than the motto was not able to be used by the Isle of Man since the UK Royal Mint had rights to it. Well there is another controversy and this time it is two Commonwealth countries suing each other. From what I gather there is a special technique that the Royal Canadian Mint developed to put color on coins. And, according to the RCM, the Australian coins using colorization are using that method without permission! See the article link at the end of the post. Has anyone started hoarding the Australian $2 coins in question? Or any other colorized coins? Anyone following this or the other "copyright coins" to see how they have done in terms of price movement? http://nationalpost.com/news/politics/first-it-was-poppies-now-its-possum-magic-canadian-mint-ups-ante-in-court-battle-with-australia-over-coins
