Great day out at the coin fair in London today. Thought would share a few cracking pictures of the day… and coins.

There had to be £50+m in coins on display today! Well impressive. 

PS. Have removed companies selling where possible to stay within rules of forum.

The guy wasn’t too keen to get the 1 kilo gold 3 graces out to look. I get that… 😂… I was a little short on the £90-£95k asking price! 😂

The thing I lived though as meeting a few passionate few passionate people. EBay sellers at that. Will be doing a few deals with those that took the time to educate me. Loved it! :) Big thanks!!

Great little coin sold to me by @DuncanWylieWilson. Thank you my man for being such a great introducer to the world of older gold and numismatics!

This coin is 167 years old, and less than 150,000 of them were minted. I absolutely love this one! I sometimes wonder how many are still out there... 🤔

Temperamental seller [for now] looking to sell a couple of PM's to sustain a new PM addiction. Want some gold? I got some gold coins for sale. Want some silver? I got BYB poured shapes and a thick shiny bracelet.

Otherwise, I'm a chill dude - will happily discuss  cryptos, PMs or appreciate the best silver memes thread to get a good laugh :)

Couldn't agree any less! I was bit by the gold bug too 😅🤩

This one's been well looked after 1354+ years, sold by my mate @Leonmarsh, another numismatic legend!

Oh my camera is so grainy😡, doesn't capture the beauty!

Thoughts on coin capsules?! 
By Silverman.
————-

I am interested in peoples’ thoughts. What is the best coin capsules to really protect your valuable coins? Leuchtturn or Air-tite or someone else? And who is the best supplier?
 

Bad examples

——

Let’s start with the down right terrible from sadly a seller on TSF (and has yet to respond to my request, don’t think asking for a refund was too much to ask? 😒). See video below. I am holding back from the name and shame game, but will be happy to right a factual review in time should I not here back from the seller. I would like all my fellow TSF members get quality they expect from being on this forum. 
 

Then let’s go to royal mint and the 1mm air gap I have noticed on all the way around my 2oz silver coins I am getting these days. Also my 3oz £5K+ platinium proof coin. don’t get it as it will let dust into coin as not sealed inside at top. The only way to protect coins is a PCGS or NGC case if you want to display coin at all

I have decided to write an email to my account manager at the mint questioning the quality of the capsules after @BackyardBullion recent YouTube video outlining also delays on getting the Jubilee coins out. I have reiterated my concern on coin series delays too. 
 

Good

Now lets go to the good. The type of capsules. Air-tite and Leuchtturm seem to be the leads. Then the gold standard has to be NGC and PGCS. Having received an impression that NGC was desirable (probably because I like the profession look on their slabs) I was surprised to here a different view point for a dealer at London coin fair that lent more towards PGCS. Either way either of these are your best option though come at s price. 
 

Then there are sellers…

Which ones?

To answer on your question about capsules. If the company would have an official reseller in the EU, I would go for Air-tites but their shipping cost is just crazy and than you have to pay import taxes and vat on it so I have chosen the second option. Leuchtturm has a wide range of capsules, also special ones who have a product that guarantees at least 15 years against tarnishing. They also have good prices and low shipping cost.

Thanks did not know about that 15 years against tarnishing. Is that on any of there capsules do you know or ultra special models?

Very nice, now I am thinking about it, something that every "Gold bug" should have in his stack/ collection. I hope I will have the chance to get one soon.
