    I sold 1oz of Gold

    Hi Fellow forum members I just want to share a brief story with you all I have sold my first ever 1oz gold bar which i bought from BBP. The price I paid for it was £1017 at the time. A close family member (blood) is currently on holiday in Canada and I spoke to a dealer over the phone and via email to see whether they will buy this 1oz gold metalor bar but pay in cash (Canadian Dollars). The bar has been cashed in now and the amount received was 2020 Canadian Dollars. The current selling price of an oz of AU in the uk will give me £1217 or there abouts (on Atkinsons), that same

    Yh good point @richatthecroft The bar was purchased mid 2017. I was not in desperate need for the cash so I would have kept on to this for a much longer period of time. I decided to sell just to test the waters and aid a family member. £200 profit for 2 years of holding is not amazing but it is still far better then what most would get from interest on a current account for sure. Also just an additional point no issues at Gatwick or at Toronto airports either.

  7. There are actually genuinely some UK farmers here on the forum. There is @Cornishfarmer who made this topic here about 4 years ago, but he is still a very active member of the forum On a side note, I didn't know that there was a treasure hunting magazine, it may be worth making a new forum section in the future and then advertising the forum in this magazine.

  9. Just a friendly conversation piece but who can recall movies where pm's were moved around sneakily, like goldfinger with his rolls royce, morcombe and wise with their jewelry in the tank in 'The Riviera Touch'....who can name a movie where they did this, I'll start. Goldfinger - Smelted gold into car parts on the rolls royce. The Riviera Touch - stolen jewelry hidden in the petrol tank. The French Connection - Drugs hidden in the rocker panels. French Connection 2 - Drugs hidden on the bottom of a ship.

    Hi all. Today I received... this 1847 Shield Back Sovereign with the striking error on the N in Britanniarum. Anyone had a similar coin, share any insight? Might call it a Willy Wonka...

    Convertibility yellow metal into any fiat currency you require whenever you require it while preserving purchasing power and removing all third party risk. Yellow metal certainly does shine bright with 5,000 years of history and mentioned numerous times as real money in biblical times.

  15. Yes, I absolutely got why you traded the bar- nice experiment to exemplify to doubters the value of investing PM’s. I think nigh on £200 profit on £1k is a marvelous return. This is encouraging too.

  17. To put a little more perspective on this trade @Tn21 it would be handy to know how long you held the 1oz Bar? I’m certain you couldn’t have got this percentage of profit by sticking cash in the bank- and certainly none of the risks taken by trusting your hard earned cash to other forms of investment. Gold is a fantastic investment/ wealth preservation tool long term, and sometimes in the short term. Well done! And you might well of converted others to see the potential Gold offers.

  19. After I read your post I couldn't but check the charts. I wish I hadn't done this. Soon I will need to sell some of my organs to buy more gold. At least I have ordered one Sovereign, yesterday

  20. You could also weigh it and see if it's silver. The US Mint continued to make silver quarters and half dollars after 1964, but for collectors not for circulation. You may have found one that found its way into circulation. Silver versions should weigh about 12.5 grams, and non-silver around 11.3 grams.

    With you on that. My point being 1oz of Gold is 1oz of Gold full stop. However collectible Coins do have the overhand. For eg. I bought a Queen’s Beasts „The Griffin of Edward III“ in 2017 for €1350,00 it’s now selling for up to €2200,00 by CoinInvest Germany. Admittedly I have to find a buyer but the reward speaks for itself.

  29. Yh that's correct bar was taken by the family member who went to the dealer and carried out the deal. They were in the shop for less then 2 mins as the dealer was already aware of the incoming bar. It was pretty straight forward from what I heard. The bar was carried inside the hand luggage and there was no issues at all.

    Good stuff, this reminds me of the tales of pilots carrying sovereigns with them to exchange with the locals in the event they were shot down Gold has done its job, if you had held sterling for the same time you would have far less dollars to show for it. Well done 👍

    Gold high spot price

    Movin' on up! I'm not surprised of the rise. I think we'll have a gradual increase all the way to the end of the year. Very interesting times ahead! The temptation is always there to buy more gold. Hard to resist! 😩

  42. Its not the front line officers that cause the problems its the senior officers with their politically correct policies which drive the way they police. added to this is the funding cuts to social services , mental health and other agencies means a lot of people are being dealt with by the police to do work which they are not trained for

    Gold high spot price

    I think the USD all time high is more a 12-24 month target. It will probably need a bit of help from a weaker dollar. When that happens I think that marks the start of the "public awareness" phase which then propels the main phase of the whole bull market.

    Silver 1ozT blanks?

    I doubt that cast discs of silver would give you an idea what blanks would look like. I believe they are usually produced by rolling into sheets of silver and stamped out into discs.
