    Some behind the scenes issues with the current forum server migration but that doesn't stop this amazing deal on gold......

    This is a chance for members to be able to purchase gold at spot price.... 

    Limited time exclusive for TSF members until current stock is sold out (estimated to be gone before 22nd September 2023 but could sell out much faster if a lot of members take up this offer) 

    Random year 1oz Gold Kruggerand, dealer's choice. Bullion Grade. 0% Premium at SPOT. Available until sold out of current stock (estimated to be sold before 22nd September 2023, subject to availability of current stock) using code: KRUGERRAND0 on the order form. Please make sure you add the discount code on the order form before ordering to get the discount applied. 

    Link to purchase: https://tavexbullion.co.uk/gold/1oz-south-african-krugerrand-previous-years/

    This is available to all members including FREE standard forum members. Though of course we do appreciate those who chose to support TSF with Premium Membership as this helps us greatly

    0laf5on reacted to ChrisSilver in EXCLUSIVE TSF Member Discounts at TAVEX - ALL members, LIMITED TIME ⌛   
    TSF and @TavexBullion are very excited to announce a limited time promotional offer open to all TSF members! Tavex already provide exceptional value with highly competitive prices in the UK, this offer gives TSF members even more discounts on top, for a limited time!

    Tavex is planning on joining the Platinum Offers from Selected Dealers programme, that gives discounts from selected dealers for Platinum and Platinum PLUS Premium members. But before this we have launched an introductory promotional offer at even better discounted rates open to ALL TSF members! (note that the offers that will be available in the Platinum Offers programme may be lower than this introductory offer, and they have not been worked out yet, the volume of orders in this introductory offer may affect how much discount we are able to offer on that) 

    For full transparency TSF were offered affiliate links and to earn a commission from referred sales, we have decided to split the commission equally between TSF and members in the form of discounts using these discount codes instead. The % discount below is the % that will be deducted from the item cost at checkout, TSF will also earn the same % commission on these discounted products that are ordered. The split is equal. This will help us to grow the forum further and to help us negotiate more great deals like this for members in the future  

    The Tavex 1g Gold Bar

    One of the products I would like to highlight in this deal is the Tavex 1g Gold Bar. At the time of writing this bar costs just £55.51 (before discount) which offers exceptional value per gram when compared to other fractional gold items (even much larger ones), these bars are also very affordable and a good introduction to gold, though small they are very easy to resell and are great for those who wish to purchase a very small piece of gold but regularly. From my understanding and knowledge these are the lowest price 1g Gold Bars that you can by from any dealer in the UK, even lower when you add the TSF discount on top! These are IMO a great pick up! Easily divisible when coming to sell.

    Introductory offer, 1% discount! Using discount code THESILVERFORUM

    Discount is available until 25th September 2023 23:55 UK time. 

    All Items and discount available 

    All items below can be purchased between now and until 25th September, 23:55 UK time 2023 using the discount code THESILVERFORUM please make sure that you use the discount code on the order form before placing the order, as it is unlikely that they will be able to add the discount retrospectively.

    Simple use the discount code THESILVERFORUM when checking out on Tavex's website: https://tavexbullion.co.uk

    Aladeeen number 3, from @geowill989
    Features the older mosque design on the reverse with the switch to Khomeini on the obverse, later Khomeini heads use a more modern interpretation of the mosque.
    The reverse will be familiar to anyone that remembers the OG Aladeen, except that one didn't have papa Khomeini on.
    This is the way. Praise Khomeini

    1959 Diez Pesos (probably a restrike)
    Purchased a 10 peso coin at the London Coin Fair the other day - it's a little bit larger than a sovereign, .900 with 7.5g gold content.
    The finish is in pretty good nick, although there are some abrasions visible on the obverse.

    I took one '23 golden sovereign to compare to the golden lustre of the tin foil found in a packet of Tesco's biccies. How did the sov compare? Not very well at all lol. 
    Sov saved. Biscuits eaten. This concludes my experiment.

    Sov received today, Biscuits still in date.

    2007 Proof Full Sovereign
    I decided to reshoot this coin for a couple of reasons.
    Firstly, I actually missed the focus on the front edge - just didn't notice.  You can see it's soft around the 3 o'clock edge.  I simply didn't start the focus stack closer enough, and just didn't notice.
    Secondly, I think the back lighting I used to brighten the rim, is a little too bright.  It's caused a lot of quite distracting reflection, and if the edge was in focus it would probably glare.  I don't want the rim to be brighter than the face, just visible.

    The new version is definitely sharper.  Quite a different colour also, so I'm wondering if I need to calibrate my lights again to get the white balance retuned.
    Anyway, prefer this second version.
