  1. personally I wouldn't touch this with a bargepole, never use a wallet address that someone else generated, you have to take their word that they don't have a copy of the private key that they generated, stamped on the coin, generated a QR code for, then hid under a sticker! no thanks see the 1 star reviews on amazon, some indicate that their bitcoin was stolen from these "cold storage" wallets Amazon.co.uk:Customer reviews: Cold Storage Coins Bitcoin Store | 1 Ounce 999 Fine Copper | Securely Store & Encrypt Cryptocurrencies

    Mildenhall Dish

    I may have sold off my silver stack, but I just stumbled upon a reference to this Roman beauty: Mildenhall Platter A large concave silver platter with beaded rim (135 beads in total) on a circular vertical foot-ring positioned exactly one-third in from the rim. The entire upper surface is decorated in raised relief executed by chasing with details added with the use of fine incised lines. This is divided into 3 decorative zones in a circular arrangement, alluding to the worship and mythology of Bacchus on land and in the sea. In the central medallion is a facing head of Oceanus, with dolphins in his hair and a beard formed of seaweed fronds, enclosed in a border of 91 circular pellets. The inner frieze, bordered by scallop shells, consists of four scenes of naked nereids riding mythical marine creatures, a triton, a half-stag/half-sea creature, a ketos in association with a triton and a hippocamp. The wide outer frieze features 6 different scenes with the central figures being Bacchus, holding a bunch of grapes and a thyrsus and resting a foot on his panther. The god presides over a celebration of music, dancing and drinking in his honour. The participants include the hero Hercules, overcome by the consumption of wine and having to be supported by two satyrs, the goat-legged god Pan, and various satyrs and maenads dancing or playing musical instruments. In the field there are a variety of objects associated with the thiasos, including a krater, pedum, skin with grapes, drums or tambourines and a mask of Silenus on a pedestal.
  3. Sorry all my tubes of brits are gone...
  4. wow, I think there are dealers offering spot (plus or minus a percent or two) for 999...
  5. In my case I didn’t actually “have to” sell, I just came to a decision based with on a few factors (not least storage!). TSF is a fantastic place to buy and sell, however if you do have a few hundred oz, then there are only so many buyers, even on here!
  6. I thought I would post the following as it may be food for thought to some people on here, and may even trigger some interesting debate... I started stacking silver in 2018 with the purchase of a monster box of Britannias from Goldsilver.be which I took delivery of. I then bought more in 2020, and by September 2020 had approx 1700 oz, 1200 of which were in the vaults of Goldsilver.be and European Mint. I hadn’t really considered what I was going to do with the silver, I just considered it long term savings and a hedge against inflation. In September 2020 I was informed by European Mint that the storage option was suspended, and that I would need to take delivery. With Brexit in mind I decided to take delivery from Goldsilver.Be as well. In March of this year, for a few reasons which I am not going to divulge, I decided to sell my stack, and I sold most of it here on TSF. I am not going to give any advice or even opinion on stacking silver or not, however I would suggest that precious-metal stackers give some serious thought (if they haven’t already) to how they would divest, if they either decided to, or were forced to by unforeseen circumstances. cheers, BDTH
  7. personally I would never advise anyone to buy bitcoin, but I would not really advise anyone to buy anything what I have advised a few friends, and they have taken the advice, is to educate themselves about bitcoin, there is very good information for those genuinely interested even if you think it is a scam that will eventually be exposed and go to zero, it isn't a ponzi scheme, which has a specific definition and method nor is it remotely like the Zimbabwe Dollar or like tulips, or like any other tired cliche
  8. I think you are right that as crypto becomes more and more mainstream, and as fiat gets relentlessly created, many more people will start thinking about money, leading to an increased interest in precious metals I started with Bitcoin, then bought silver
  9. now do xboxes apparently gaming accounts for 5% of domestic energy use never heard a no-coiner mention it though
  10. Er yeah, I was going to thinking something very similar I knew Bitcoin was highly volatile when I stared buying right at the end of 2017 (fomo time) just before it pulled back 85% (in fact the volatility is what put me off at buying at £50 and £500🤣) I was well into 5 figures GBP underwater in 2018, but I kept buying here and there (wish i had Dollar Cost Averaged) I HODLed, an I can’t complain, waiting for a reasonable sized pullback so I can buy the dip again!
  11. I considered buying a platinum Britannia when the price dropped but I was worried that I would forget that it was platinum and sell it as silver 🤣
  12. I thought VWs “dieselgate” bashed platinum as car manufacturers had been “stockpiling” it for diesel catalytic converters, or at least there was an expected future demand for cats priced in but since car makers struggle to legitimately meet emissions regulations (hence the cheating software and with future regs likely to be tougher and tougher) they now plan to phase out diesel cars, hence a dump of platinum back onto the market “supply” AND “demand”
  13. my understanding from memory is that by far the biggest “gold mine” is actually a copper mine, removing gold as an “impurity”, so to some extent copper demand could drive down gold (and silver) prices could be this one: “Bingham Canyon has proven to be one of the world's most productive mines. As of 2004, its ore yielded more than 17 million tons (15.4 Mt) of copper, 23 million ounces (715 t) of gold, 190 million ounces (5,900 t) of silver”
  14. to play devils advocate on the silver paper manipulation narrative: Let’s say for sake of argument that the manipulation is 100% real, that it is illegal, immoral etc etc Then that is the territory that an investor is operating in, and that is surely just something to factor in when buying for investment, it’s not as if such manipulation is going to suddenly stop and silver finds its “correct” price, whatever that may be I bought silver because I thought it might shoot up, it went up enough to be worthwhile, but nothing spectacular
