    It is getting very close to the optimum time to sell the gold and buy the gold stock.

    Silver is cheap compared to gold. So silver may have more upside. Gold is also easier to ship and you will have to sell a lot less volume.

    I note the spot price is in freefall immediately after you posted your question.

    Thanks for that boneyard.

    You should seriously see if the tradies would accept PMs as payment or part payment for work. I certainly would if I was ever working for someone who I knew was into numismatics or PMs.

    Perhaps they would be more interested in Toohey's Gold.

    Thanks all for input.

    Mentioned Gold & Silver to him.

    Got back a blank look....

    Said Bitcoin to him.

    "Hey funny you should mention that, my wife and I were watching a show on the TV and it mentioned stuff about Bicoin, but I do not understand it."

    Payment has to be deposited into a bank account.

    Need the $$$ ASAP, so I can not spend the time listing stuff on SS.

    Off to AEJ today with a mix of Gold & Silver and with a printed copy of W. Davis & Son buy/sell price list.
