  1. Not really my field of expertise as I only collect 1oz Privy kooks..sorry Incant help on this one.
  2. Welcome to the forum, especially welcome as you have bought some Kookaburras..a pleasure to give you your first community reputation point.
  3. As I collect Perth Mint 1oz privy Kookaburras, I sort for have to keep the collection ‘up to date’, and for c£35 I don’t mind! It’s the outrageously priced F15 Privy Kooks I have stopped collecting (at least until the prices fall back to Earth). The Perth Mint ANDA expo coins I do actually quite like ( I have the 2019 square penny and the 2020 Floral ones that come in cards and they are well worth the money IMO. Besides, a very kind forum member who attends theses expositions always picks me up a couple when he is there, and sends them to me straight away. At £35 on eBay the seller is making hardly any profit, so I would buy if I didn’t already have them. The more recent Brisbane example I do not have, but will add to my collection when prices fall...well that’s the plan anyway! Kooks are great coins..can’t go wrong with Perth Mint quality...unlike others🤔 !
  4. Some good bedtime reading..from Cointalk https://www.cointalk.com/threads/what-you-need-to-know-about-the-science-of-toning.84670/
  5. How about 4Ag + 2H2S +O2 -> 2Ag2S + 2H2O ? I think I have found an article which might shed some light on the subject ...See below
  6. I like this answer...a lot👍..that’s a few sensible suggestions, but nothing conclusive so far...I think I might refer this to a chemist...as the toning can be removed in a solution...I have seen a video on my travels...I think it involves baking power, warm water and silver foil. I will provide an update if I get an answer...
  7. The certificate is fine! ..but it is made of thick paper and is coated with something shiny!..
  8. They wouldn’t last long on the window sill round here..too many magpies about😂..but a lovely thought!
  9. Two Australian Perth Mint 1oz Silver Privy marked Kookaburras with a difference...see this link🤔 https://www.thesilverforum.com/topic/32955-silver-tones-faster-in-sunshine☀%EF%B8%8F☀%EF%B8%8F☀%EF%B8%8F☀%EF%B8%8F☀%EF%B8%8F/
  10. My knowledge of what causes silver to tone is minimal (non existant actually), and I wasn’t interested in it much until today!...But then.. I received two rare 1oz Perth Mint Silver Privy Kookaburras, and noticed something unusual...they looked golden. These are the two I received today (From a main dealer in Australia, so no worries about authenticity). When you flip them over it all changes..the obverse are all silver ? Initially, I was a little disappointed, but now I actually love the matte gold appearance...question is...how do I get the obverse to follow suit? And how long will it take? These coins are contained within a folder which opens out easily, so I am guessing the previous owner had them on display. (In Australian sunshine, might be a bit tricky to replicate that int Yorkshire 😂). As the coins are each contained within a sealed capsule, and will have been exposed to exactly the same climatic conditions..does this mean that it is sunshine that has caused the perfectly distributed toning (extra heat I guess) ...or are other factors at work? My others (3) all have the normal silver appearance. I will put them on display and get back to you all in 20 years time, assuming we have some excellent summers along the way!☀️☀️👍.
  11. No need for three guesses as to what I think is the best 1kg bar to own...I bought several of these from forum members, and the rest second hand from eBay...always on the lookout for more if anyone wants to part with one👍
  12. Snapshot of how the fund has performed today... Thats a very good day at the office for me!
  13. Have you looked at the Merian Gold and Silver ETF? Worth a look🤫 Top 10 Constituents in the fund :-
  14. Great result👍..what are you going to spend the money on? I am trading my way to a newer car, and getting closer by the day! I reckon a fair few on here are up significant amounts of 🤑🤑🤑...just curious what’s at the end of the rainbow for you all 😃.
  15. My only concern..and also one for all those that own Gold / Silver miner shares, ETF’s etc is this:- When global stock markets imploded at the beginning of March, the miners (GDX chart above) all tanked as well...as spot gold dropped about $200 an oz 😱 This poses the question....do you think the above will occur in a similar way again. All views welcomed..
