Silver bullion history

Recommended Posts

What is the oldest silver bullion coin?

'Wikipedia' says the Libertad ('82) followed by the ASE ('86).

I didn't realise that it's such a recent occurrence. 

Technically, alcohol is a solution..

'It [socialism] poses a growing threat, however unintentional, to the freedom of this country, for there is no freedom where the State totally controls the economy. Personal freedom and economic freedom are indivisible. You can’t have one without the other. You can’t lose one without losing the other.'

"There is no such thing as public money, there is only taxpayers' money"

Let not England forget her precedence of teaching nations how to live.

Good point HH.

Forgive my laziness, but if I may quote from the oracle that is Wiki...

'A bullion coin is a coin struck from precious metal and kept as a store of value or an investment, rather than used in day-to-day commerce.'

'It [socialism] poses a growing threat, however unintentional, to the freedom of this country, for there is no freedom where the State totally controls the economy. Personal freedom and economic freedom are indivisible. You can’t have one without the other. You can’t lose one without losing the other.'

And : 'The United Kingdom defines investment coins more specifically as coins that have been minted after 1800, have a purity of not less than 900 thousandths and are, or have been, a legal tender in their country of origin.'

before our time of bullion coins,

if you had a circulating real silver coin and you wanted to save/invest

you could buy a proof, or buy a bar. why would you exchange a

perfectly useful silver coin at cost for a non circulating silver coin of

similar value? (it's only because we no longer have silver in our

currency since the end of ww2, many other countries had a similar

outcome)
