  1. I dont know why 'tarnishing' is viewed as undesirable, personally I prefer coins with a bit of toning as its a guarantee that a coin has not been cleaned, also if allowed to develop naturally toned coins end up being far more desirable and have character.
  2. Silver hits £20 and all the cheap silver has been sold, silvertrader is taking a break and Atkinsons has crashed....
  3. Atkinsons has stopped taking orders as silver hits £17.60 😆😆
  4. Look what happened in Weimar Germany . Silver was 12 deutsche marks in Jan 1919, 90 dm in 1920, over 1000dm Nov 1922, over 10000 by Jan 1923 and trillions by Nov 1923. I think its better to hold silver in a crisis and wait for some stability to return before selling.
  5. Physical silver is about £20 an ounce at the moment. I reckon its only a matter of time before the traders in paper silver demand delivery so they can cash in on the high physical price.
  6. The Treasure of the Sierra Madre(1948) Starring Humphrey Bogart, LOL I only know because i watched it recently after seeing this clip on the net... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9E-01dK5zQ
  7. I had cash to burn in 2007, went into my LCS and bought a few sovereigns for £82 each and a rare hammered penny for £800. Today the sovereigns are worth about £300 each and the hammered penny only £850...if only I could go back in time and make a different decision.😫
  8. From the German bundesbank website https://www.bundesbank.de/dynamic/action/en/homepage/search/723378/general-search?query=legal+tender+coin Legal tender is the means of payment that nobody can refuse to settle a monetary obligation without experiencing legal disadvantages. In the euro area, euro banknotes and coins are legal tender; only Eurosystem central banks are allowed to introduce euro banknotes and coins into circulation. In Germany, banknotes denominated in euro are the sole unrestricted legal tender. Euro coins are restricted legal tender as no one is obliged to accept more than 50 coins or coins to the value of more than €200. German commemorative euro coins are legal tender throughout the euro cash area. However euro collector coins are only valid in the issuing country. Euro collector coins are distinguished by the fact that their nominal value is not equivalent to a regular coin (for example 1/4 euro or 5 euro).
