There are two top tier grading companies that are widely accepted in the precious metals industry as being the two leading grading companies; Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and Professional Coin Grading Services (PCGS). We would recommend members to choose coins graded by these companies. Coins graded by these companies generally trade to a premium over coins graded by other less popular grading companies.
OK - maybe a little respite from all the sound and fury about bullion prices 🤣: some nice collectors coins to add to my gold Indian Head half eagle collection, focussing on the San Francisco mintmarks. Three graded and one raw (1914 S) that I hope will grade well, although you never know. I have a 1909 already, but not a good one - so this MS62 is an upgrade !
I am trying to educate myself on what makes some of these grade MS and some stay below the line as AU...so I can do a better job when picking raw coins....wish me luck.
Looks good Roy a lot of companies to keep an eye on but my favourites are there. A solid reflation portfolio imo.
I have the following positions in the ISA, in order of size; RDSB, BP, BT.A, REP, TEF, VOD, SDF, XOM, CVX.
On the buy list when funds are available; NTR, MOS, NG., DRAX, SSE, BATS, LGEN.
I have enough in oil now, working on building a bit more in telecoms and then into potash stocks, then infrastructure and a bit of diversification from yield stocks. Should be there by year end then I'll keep adding to those positions over the next couple of years I think.
PM mining shares I buy via a fund in the sipp which is enough for me with physical metal outside.
No criticism Roy everyone has their own perspective on things all I would say is I'd personally find it hard to keep on top of more than 10 companies. I currently only have 8 companies in my portfolio.
