Revenge of Peter Rabbit

Recommended Posts

So the RM have announced that  on the 19th there will be yet another (yawn)  Beatrix potter Peter Rabbit 50p.

Prepare your alarm clocks for a swift profit gents!

Bets on it being a circulation coin ? I'll go with yes. the rest have been and it and 3 friends won't be in any sets.

You can clearly hear the Cha-ching from my house and I'm 30 miles from Llantrisant.

I really don't get this crap.

Sometimes I can see the demeaning small short-term profit as the hordes panic when the issue runs out.

Long term?  No.  

As soon as stuff is flogged as 'limited edition' ( only 46 million),

a 'future investment' ( you only lose a quarter of what an item bought from TKMax loses in value in the same period)

and it's all 'Nice 'n' shiny',

I run a mile, while a pile of idiots with a mental age of 15 and no life experience runs the other way.

 

I should put wire mesh in front of my TV just in case that pompous knobhead from the 'London Mint Office'  comes on again....

 

 

None of this is coin 'collecting' !!!!!

It's 'accumulating'.

It's also, at times, preying on the gullible...

At today's birthrate, there's one born every 1.8 seconds.

 

My collection of old audio gear went up in value by more than I earned, last year.

I bought none of it, over the last 40 years, at the going rate either.

OR, I could have spent  the equivalent time and money buying a new VHS recorder from Currys each week and stashing it away

as an 'investment'........
