    Rhodium

    What I like about Rhodium is how rare it is. Around 25 tonnes a year is mined mostly from South Africa. It is around 100 times rarer than gold. Less than 800 thousand people could each buy a 1 ounce bar every year. That would be without any Rhodium being used in industrial or auto applications. It is only relatively recently Rhodium became available to purchase in bar / coin form. The Johnson Matthey website has some good detailed Rhodium information in their free pgm market report for May 2018 on their website.
  2. My 2016 total is £43.88 comprising: 1 x £20 note, £7.88 coins, 1 x £10 and 2 X £3 unclaimed National lottery scratchcard prizes. Also found a gold ring shaken loose inside some dumped business lockers.
  3. I read about this a bit. From 2006 until present Chinese money supply has more than tripled. The newly created money lowers the value of existing Chinese currency, keeping their currency cheap and hence their industries / companies highly competitive. Property values have greatly increased in China. They appear to be creating economic growth by increasing the money supply. Unfortunately they also appear to be using printed currency to buy up swathes of actual foreign assets. I would not be surprised if their recent purchase of a chunk of the UK national grid has been pretty much for free.

    Those Far Cotton terraces are also close to the river Nene which flooded very badly in 1998. Crazy.

    £147,500.00 for a a smallish victorian mid terrace in Semilong seems a a bit optimistic even if it has been refurbished. https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-4553531.html The house next door, appears to have had its roof covered with solar panels on top of replacement concrete tiles which are already considerably heavier than the original slate roof. Hopefully this will not happen: https://www.northamptonchron.co.uk/news/local/family-says-roof-collapse-in-semilong-northampton-like-an-earthquake-1-5973405?WT.mc_id=Ooutbrain_text&obref=obinsite
  9. I recently received Royal Mint post about a 2014 Year of the horse coin. Included was a leaflet on the £20 silver coin which said "For a limited period only we have increased the number of coins from three to ten per household - but only until 11 February 2014. After this date the restriction will revert to just three per household " Also a free delivery code of D1460W for online orders of say 1 coin, but not telephone orders. Not sure if restricted to just £20 coin.
  10. I like the ones with no outside photos of the building, such as: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-41351963.html?premiumA=true

    The Gold Bubble

    I hope golds fall takes silver with it so I can buy some more at lower prices. I have been looking at silver and it does not seem that bad value. The 24000 tonnes mined globally in a year can be bought at current prices for £11 billion which is not a lot relative to values placed on other "stuff". Some infographics on silver can be seen at: http://demoncracy.info/infographics/world/silver/silver.html At the bottom they feel silver in existence on earth is 777000 tonnes, but not that easy to recover as it is mostly in lots of small items like tableware, jewellery, coins etc 777000 tonnes at current prices works out at approx £356 billion. This is approx 7.15% of the total value of UK houses takeing a value of approx £5 trillion.
  14. I found this article interesting. Mainly dealing with how the USA, if the figures can be proven correct, has got itself into a real mess with regards to its supposed gold reserves. http://www.caseyresearch.com/cdd/Chris-Martenson-official-gold-numbers-dont-add-up
