    Yep - see Goldfinger's chart about a page ago. At about $2.40 to the £

    We've got a new all time high in Silver in GBP today. Over the previous £21.65 as I type.

    Thanks, so it's £21.61 = $35.18 as I post. Only a few hours to go, at this rate.

    Does anyone know the All-time high silver price in sterling? I have worked out $49.45 in March 1980 @ £1=$2.32 = £21.26. I had to guess the exchange rate, but I think we've beaten that now.

    I was in Amsterdam last weekend and bought as a birthday present to myself a 1929 2 1/2 guilder coin from a dealer for 14 euros. He told me it was 945/1000 silver and it weighs 25g, but when I got home the internet tells me it's only 720/1000. He got the weight right though. Don't trust coin dealers on Nieuwezijds Vorburgwal
  6. I've just asked to join. Facebook isn't the right place though. That's where I see who my children are friends with, and occasionally I see an ex or two. Linkedin is a work thing - I'm linked to clients and suppliers, not many friends. I think GEI would fit in well there.
  7. That's interesting. I am on Linkedin because our marketing department asked us to, so the company would get more web presence. I haven't bothered much with my profile, cv or anything. But then I'm not actively seeking another job. How do you seek potential recruits? Is it on-screen adverts that target me because of keywords in my profile or some other clever way? Do you get to contact people directly based on some search criteria?

    I'm merely passing on a tip - get in touch with them if you're interested. I guess there'd be P&P charges if you don't want to go to the shop in Birmingham. The point is he doesn't bother advertising them because he thinks there's no market, so you need to ask.

    I went to the MoneyShow on Saturday, which had been preceded by a convenient fall in the price of silver. I was comparing the price of CID who I knew were going to be there with their 100kg gold mapleleaf - the size of a pizza. There was another company I'd not heard of before, bullionbars.eu. aka Atkinsons the Jewellers. He was not as competitively priced, as he was selling Umicore 100g bars of silver. He talked about his margins, and I said what a shame it was I couldn't buy second-hand stuff, because of the VAT only being levied on his profit margin, rather than on the full value. He thus presented me with a 10oz Johnson Matthey bar for which I paid £174. Beat that! He said it was worth getting in touch if I wanted to buy more, so I will. I'm sharing this news with you guys as my needs are modest.

    "CME confirmed silver margins raised" Can someone please explain what this actually means? Thanks!

    Copy silver or a copy of a $20 coin? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1TROY-OZ-FINE-SILVER...60#ht_500wt_949 22 mins, £12.40 + £1.50pp

    I have read countless threads on sites like goldismoney2 arguing for coins v rounds and I could sum them up as follows: Rounds are cheaper, coins are more recognisable if tshtf. Anyway I came to the conclusion that there is no right answer, so I buy any silver that is at the right price, except for the religious stuff. Variety is nice. I only managed to buy 1 ounce on Friday - I wanted £100-worth, and I'm checking once or twice a day.

    Yes but it's still £23.80 an ounce, when spot is £15.50. That's a huge difference. I bought a first majestic round off Sarnia on Friday for £17.99, arrived today. Keep looking they are there sometimes.
