  1. Gold is a hedge against currency debasement. If the euro "crashes" doing so means it is losing value against other currencies, notably the dollar, and -- all else equal -- gold.
  2. Thanks again, this is all super helpful. Another question is that I'm seeing some sets of special/commemorative coins being offered at a premium of <5% on the gold content. While I know most commemorative coins are often a rip off, is it fair to assume that I would be able to sell a commemorative coin for close (within 5%) to the gold content therein? I have in mind coins that are NOT sovereigns, etc. but rather nonstandard coins that are nonetheless being marketed by reputable dealers as low premium options for acquiring gold. My thinking is that the low premium makes them bette
  3.

  7. Hi All, I’m new to the forum, and interested in purchasing gold coins for the first time given my bullish view on the gold price. I’m finding it a bit overwhelming given the current bullion shortage and delivery disruptions in the UK (I am based in London). While I’ve read through a number of posts on this forum and articles elsewhere online, I would appreciate some feedback on the questions below. Based on what I was reading, I am thinking of focusing on gold sovereigns for the CGT exemption and for ease of liquidating my holdings in piecemeal fashion in the future.
