  1. Some interesting articles and interviews over at FutureMoneyTrands, James Davis is updating readers that Gold in US$ is looking close to making it's move" shooting up like a Yellowstone geyser above $1,600, confirming that this bull market in gold is HISTORICALLY unprecedented". When gold makes its definitive rally above $1,600 and makes it stick, I believe that we'll see the public start noticing, but it won't be until very late in the game that the mania will occur. Silver is the wild card. When it touches $19.50/ounce again, the interesting fireworks will attract speculators and big gains will be ripe for the taking. Quotes from James Davis at FutureMoneyTrends.com
  2. Yep - Toyota have stuck to the Hybrid model, Japanese world leaders in many fields - so they must have good reasoning for that. Hopefully people-power will become fashionable again!
  3. Best get my order in early! In reality - I think they'd got the current combustion engines working efficiently, combined with Hybrid electric would possibly last us another 50 years? They'll probably be wanting me to take a 're-test' by then!
  4. All interesting, we should get some of this into the motors section! send the video link if you find it! sounds good.
  5. Same here really, snap - a loopy dog taking up ever more space! Tesla seem to be stealing the electric show in the US, maybe China as well - until the Chinese get their own versions. I did actually bring a Chinese built electric bike back with me a few years ago and it's performed faultlessly, cost almost zero to run. UK doesn't like them at the moment though, because 'they cost almost zero to run'! i.e. they can't get much tax from them! Fortunately I'm not as directly involved within China travel, just help out a few adventurers here and there. Will be interesting to see how transport develops here. Guess we'll always be led by US tech, hard to think of much British motoring innovation? maybe Jaguar - or is that Indian!?
  6. Maybe it's 2032!? Think it was originally 2040 but they're trying to bring it forward. Still not that far away in reality, anyone buying a new car today could be the last ICE vehicle they buy? China 'was' popular, but interest in overland China travel has dropped off a little this year!!!
  7. Silver Buyer for all types of pre 1920's silver coins, in any condition, collectable or scrap If you've got any old silver coins to sell, please get in touch and we can either help you sell them here on the Hubs, or make a cash offer, Condition is no problem, there are always silver buyers interested in the older Sterling .925 silver coins, older the better!
  8. Who's already driving electric? Hybrid? How much precious metals are in your vehicle? Who's considering going electric? Great to share some thoughts and info on the electric future we're all steaming towards, (guess that phrase will need updating for starters!!) Electrifying the world further is probably going to have a big impact on metals demand, already is! I set out in the motor trade and have been running a motorcycle expedition business the past 12 years, specialising in China of all places! Especially interested to see the constant changes in transport and travel. Apparently electric planes are next in line! trucks, shipping, trains - all looks to be putting huge demand for electricity. Electric cars are definitely the future, once all the .Govs support it as policy there's no going back. Is it by 2025 UK is supposed to be totally electric vehicles? (for new vehicles) Anyway, I've specifically decided to include a 2&4 wheel section here on the Hubs - i'm guessing a lot of metals stackers are also heavily interested in vehicles / travel / future transport etc and it will have more and more connections with the metals industries, Interested in all things metals & Motors here, so post way - especially if there's a metal's connection πŸ™‚ SteveH

  10. There's huge constantly growing talk of the strains the currently debt based monetary system is under, it will be amazing if it survives much longer without some kind of global revaluation. Does appear that ever more big money' is shifting into hard assets, especially gold. I'm tempted to start a whole topic on this area soon - there's a lot of very very good insights and work being put out. I'm sure most silver buyers are well aware of these things, probably a main reason many of us invested into precious metals, especially silver, but even so - there's so much good information being put out, it can be hard to keep up to date with the overview. Sure we're all Kitco and Mike Maloney fans! and his excellently produced Hidden Secrets of Money - have done hugely good work for explaining how the monetary systems work, or work to in-debt and devalue us all! (interesting link there on Silvers current value) Certainly looks like gold will once again have a significant role in any future 'new currency' even Crypto and digital / gold in digitally traded trusts etc are making ever more connections to precious metals.
  11. Will be Interesting to see and hear what people are collecting, liking, valuing nowadays - i'm guessing the collectors market is constantly evolving - these world Mints are big businesses nowadays. I can see things like the Dinosaur and certainly Bond coins being pretty popular, guess they appeal to all ages as well. Must admit the Queen's Beasts caught me totally off-guard, I missed the looming appeal of those, really until I noticed the Unicorn and similar reasons to above - just thought they're bound to be popular with all ages / parents collecting for children (which I've heard is the case from quite a few buyers) Also noticed people buying 1 or 2 tubes of each type and sticking away, so no wonder they're getting scarce! I like quite a few of the Lunars as well, especially 5 and 10 ounce versions, also intrigues me that you can still buy a decent collectable 10 ounce silver bullion coin for around the 75/1'th the price of a gold coin, or put another way; buy the nice 10 ounce silver and still have over Β£1000 change πŸ€” not that I've got many! mainly a Unicorn and year of horse in 10ounce which I thought should always be popular. Talking of Beasts - I have noticed Dogs always seem to do well! I've been and gone with proofs myself over the years, (mainly some of the scarcer Sovereigns) tended to re-sell them before I got too addicted, invested the money in building a SilverHub! Will be interesting to see where Platinum goes from here & how much it's affected by the motor vehicle demand, or not? Proofs probably a good bet in Platinum, I'm guessing mintages are tiny? not an area I follow personally.
  12. Personally I'm more of a keep it simple bullion kind of guy myself, although I do really like some of the the well used circulated coinage just for the feeling it captures all that intrinsic history as it changes hands through time. I've noticed over the past few years that decent pre-1920 Sterling coinage has been getting harder and harder to find, certainly in any decent quantity and the nice collectors pieces looks quite a thriving market. I'd like to think that as younger generations start seeing less and less real money (when was it last ever real!?) they'll perhaps start getting more interested in the history of money and search out examples of bullion - coinage with a real intrinsic value, let's see! Modern bullion wise; I've become a firm fan of the Perth Mint Dragon coin bars, lovely .9999's, nice to hold, nice to stack, they look very nice in the chunky genuine Mint capsules and the premium isn't so much more than Britannia. Given that they're relatively new to the bullion scene and also limited to a 500k mintage, I think they'll hold that premium, appreciate in line with silver + a little extra as and when collectors are looking for any given year/version. Unlike certain other silver bullion, they haven't saturated the market at all, especially since they were only first release in 2018 - those first Dragons are already a bit thin on the stacking scene! + harness a reasonable premium over the 2019. I'mlLooking forward to sourcing some of the 2020 Dragon bars, hopefully around April time? drop me a line by all means if you're interested in joining on an order to get a tube or 2. They're supplied in nice rectangle tubes of x 20 x 1oz bars. I do have a few tubes of the 2018's and 2019's in my own stack, although probably not too keen on selling right now, since I'm pretty bullish on silver for 2020, 2021 right through to 2023 and we should be around the time for some serious appreciation once people discover they've all been tricked by endless currency printing, easing, devaluing, ever more zero to negative interest rates etc (more on that in my blogs) Summary of my own pref's: i'm still liking .925, pre 1920's silver, Dragon bars no.1 bullion, Britannia at the right price, + new the Krugerrands also a favourite - they're just a lovely iconic coin, also reasonable low premium, similar to UK Britannia. (earlier Krugs also a little scarcer as well) I do have a lovely 2017 - first issue year, 50th Aniv special with fine gold plating which really sets the coin apart, that Springbok leaps out at you! I'm aiming to offer it up as a Hubs prize later in the year, so stay tuned πŸ™‚
  13. Hi JJ B, welcome to SilverHubs, interesting looking initials - not anything to do with mining is it!? Please keep checking back and explore all of the Hubs sections, Blogs etc - content is sure to grow and you'll be able to discover plenty of silver info over the coming months. enjoy the start to stacking πŸ™‚
  14. This first batch of 2020 Britannia's all sold, but we're due to have more 2020 Britannia soon and aiming to offer a really low price for members here, probably available in early April, (for the best prices) also lots of other silver coming up for sale this year.
  15. They're certainly different! interesting way to collect Sterling silver, maybe thy bring good fortune!? Hi' Dtrain33 πŸ™‚
