  1. Agreed. I can often pick up junk silver coins on Flea Bay around spot =/- 5%, with patience.
  2. Someone earlier mentioned that using Bairdmint to buy Gold sovereigns was a competitive deal. Well I beg to differ. Yes, if you take their advertised prices, in-bond, but when you add on delivery charges, it's quite another matter. Tonight, as an example, I was about to buy a 1959 Gold sovereign for their price of £323, but at the checkout, they added on no less than £13.20 for delivery (£11 + £2.20 VAT). It doesn't matter if it's one or two coins you buy. All are at £13.20 extra. I am appalled, especially since the last time I bought one Gold sovereign from Bairdmin
  3. What about these national courier services, as an alternative to RM Special Delivery? Do they do PMs with full insurance?

    925 silver

    I think one reason why you can pick up bargains in this area is that quite often, but not always, the 925 commemorative coin was produced alongside an identical cupro-nickel version. So unless you know how to differentiate between them, which isn't easy on Flea Bay for example, you may get "done" a few times.

    925 silver

    Dicker, have you seen any trend to firming of premiums offered over spot on your 925 coin buys? I agree with you that this segment of the silver coin market is a value area. Why pay £4-8 premium per 1oz coin for all these Mint special issues? Only if you are a true collector, not an investor, IMHO.
  6. Did you get a good price for them? I paid over £400 for my first piece, in the mid-Summer.
  7. Are these still available at your price?
  8. As an alternative to the Lithium mania, may I suggest Bushveld Minerals, bmn.ln on AIM, as the future leading fully integrated Vanadium redox battery manufacturer.
  9. I have suggested to my brother, who is very risk averse, to consider buying gold or silver bullion at close to spot, for his large cash in the bank safety net, to preserve real purchasing power for his children. He wants to know how he can trust any dealer to believe they are keeping his stored gold coins, even when he has a piece of paper evidencing that position legally. Fraud, theft etc are his biggest concerns. So is there an A List of reliable dealers, with all the appropriate checks and guarantees in place, that I can provide him with, to investigate further, for purchase and
  10. I tried that. It doesn't work through a thick plastic covering, even on my other proof silver coins.
  11. How can I tell if this IOM 1970 Crown is is the Silver Proof version or not? It is still in its original plastic covering but no case or COA.
