  1. Central Banks continue to buy gold: https://www.zerohedge.com/commodities/central-banks-add-gold-fifth-straight-month
  2. I think the US Fed may be holding an emergency meeting: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2022-10-03/emergency-fed-pivot Yes they did hold the meeting: https://www.federalreserve.gov/aboutthefed/boardmeetings/20221003closed.htm It was a closed meeting - "it was determined that the public interest did not require opening the meeting".
  3. Anyone still in the Queue? I thought I'd have a look to see if they had sold out of their unlimited items and I found I was number 2,964 in the Queue!
  4. I can't find the silver proof 50p. I can see the piedfort silver, the gold and the standard BU, but not the standard silver proof.
  5. Presumably there is the potential for unlimited returns!
  6. Surely it's great news for collectors, but it is bad news for flippers.
  7. This probably highlights the difference between a collector and a stacker! A collector wants something when it is released whereas a stacker is happy to wait in the hope of getting it at the best possible price!
  8. I think if you want it, you have to pay the price asked. What it should do is take the wind out of the sales of the eBay flippers. I am pretty certain that in the past the 1970 and 1971 GB annual proof sets were unlimited and they had fairly high premiums. They got me interested in coins, and I wonder how many people will be attracted to coin collecting as a result of this first King Charles III release?
  9. I've pre-ordered a silver proof 50p from a dealer and they told me about the mintage being unlimited until the end of the year, and asked if I wanted to confirm my order - which I did as I like the design. Because of confidentiality I am not going to name the dealer.
  10. I've heard that the silver is unlimited until the end of December - I've not heard anything about the gold.
  11. I still think it is the better of the two Five Pound coins, but I still can't understand why is it necessary to release two Five Pound coins.
  12. This morning I asked a dealer if I could pre-order the silver proof 50p. They were happy to take my order, but warned me that the mintage was unlimited until the end of the year and that delivery could be up to four months - which I thought was quite good of them to do. I am not going to name the dealer for the sake of confidentiality. Whilst some people may not like an unlimited mintage, it should attract people to coin collecting and stimulate demand for past and future releases. Also, imagine the publicity the RM would get if there were problems with their website thus preventing people from buying the coins!
  13. I've heard that the mintage for the silver 50p proof is unlimited until the end of the year. Does this change your view on the coin? Delivery time could be up to four months.
