  1. Absolutely....there is no wrong or right...store them in a secure place at home....or a secure vault with a bullion dealer...Hmmmm makes me think of the Hatton garden job.....no place is safe if you think of it..its just luck...if you are going to display your collection of silver and gold on here or any forums online well....you open yourself upto all kinds of deviants..I can understand to a certain degree people showing their entire collection of coins on here for instance...lets face it..its a (Look what I have)...bit of boasting and showing off!! Something I wouldn't do...and the reason is there some very unscrupulous but very intelligent hackers of your laptops that can access your name,address,bank accounts etc and it's not difficult to discover where you live. I read a comment on here earlier about the coininvest auction...(maybe got the name wrong) who had their stock stolen from the Hilton Hotel this weekend. Absolutely heartbreaking for them and I empathise totally.... but just goes to show that there are people out there..professional thieves that do their research and due diligence when planning major robberies like this...anyone that posts their coins of significant value or show their entire collection.....is asking to be robbed..unless you have your collection in a safety vault.... which as we all know isn't 100% secure....dont show/boast and display photos of your collection on any forum...I wouldn't but if you do....dont blame anyone but yourself if...and hopefully it never happens to you..one day you wake up and find your collection missing😲😞😞😞😞😞😞
  2. Well if I was 195 years old..I think I'd have a few knocks and scratches on my face..😆😆😆😆😆
  3. I apologise..think I quoted in the wrong thread..I apologise I have upset you with my error..
  4. I'm talking about the GIV shilling being offered for £350 compared to the one I saw being sold for £26on ebay..maybe I've posted in the wrong thread.... Regards.
  5. Interesting...as the coin in the original post that the dealer was asking £350....looks alot problematic than the one I posted for a selling price of £26 I find it hard to accept the excessive price difference..yes the coin I posted has a few scratches but I think is in a fine detail condition....and the price difference of £324 btwn the 2 shillings..well I'd glady purchase the £26 GIV over the one for the asking price of £350with the few scratches in the fields..
  6. These are bullion coins...not proofs...if you hope that a bullion coin is going to be the same standard as a proof..think again...also if you look at the diabolical state of the QB's Silver proof coins released this year.......supposedly minted and sent in perfect condition🙄🙄🙄I think your comments on bullion coins fails miserably..with respect.. Regards.
  7. Raw vs Plastic slabs....albeit graded and slabed coins are worth more..(can never get my head around that) but raw everytime...paying some company and coin grader I don't know and never met...to ascertain in their opinion what condition rarity if its PL,ULTRA CAMEO etc etc.....my coin is and giving it a MS or PF/PL......66/67/68..........is just not for me..just my opinion..but I just can't pay so much money for a piece of plastic!.....can I get a higher price for my coins if I wrap them up in a crisp packet...🤔🤔🤔🤣🤣🤣🤣
  8. I'd love to know what the Gold 50p kew Gardens went for eventually on the RM's first auction....last time I looked it had a bid of £18,000 without the 20% vat and 4% buyers premium!!!!!😱😱😱
  9. Is this 1826 silver GIV shilling that sold on ebay for £26 very cheap or fake..compared to the above values on this coin?????
  10. Each to their own..I wouldn't say his idea of storing coins in tubes is better that storing them in capsules...its just down to personal preference..
  11. Totally and 100% agree @LawrenceChard ✔✔ It's the same with raw coins and those that are presented in fancy'ish cardboard/ plastic boxes with c.o.a's,they mean nothing to me and imo don't add any value to the coin you are buying! Its just packaging..its like paying more for a tin of beans of a well known brand compared to a supermarkets own brand. Same contents.just paying for fancy packaging and marketing... If you want to pay more for the fancy packaging only to get the same item..fine..but I'm not interested in the tin..but wats inside it..and that analysis is my purchasing Practice.
  12. Wow!! That's a surprise to be...there must be alot of damaged dented,scratched 9999 gold coins out there then....being the gold is more softer than 22kt...I thought they would be packed and shipped with more care..🙄🙄🙄
  13. I'm wondering if anyone stores their four 9999's Gold coins in tubes.....🥺🥺🥺😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱
