It's BREXIT day and Ive picked up my keepsake.

The day of reckoning is finally upon us! Will the world fall apart at 11pm this evening as the UK "officially" begins the widthdrawl process of leaving the European Union?? If you don't hear from me tomorrow, assume all forms of communication are down and the country is now at war with the rest of Europe!!

You think I'm joking?!?! Well that's the picture some scaremongerers have been paiting these past few days. Me, personally, I think that very little will change for the average, everyday person. The sun will still rise, the air will still be just about breathable and prices in the shops will continue to increase as the central banks monetary policies continue to screw us ALL over.... But there we are, what do I know!!

What I do know, is how to make a quick buck. This is where the Royal Mint and the "BREXIT" coin could be a little gold mine waiting to be exploited.

Its been a very soggy morning, and I've already called in to the RM before heading to work. Luckily for me, the mint is less than a 2 minute detour on my route to work, so it took me less than 15 minutes to get in, get my loot and get out. I say "get my loot", but by the time arrived (06:30), the shelves had already been picked clean by fellow coin collectors and flippers.

Luckily for me I had stayed up to reserve my coins online, expecting for demand at the mint itself to be far greater than normal, due to the special STRIKE YOUR OWN TOURS they are doing through out today

So when I finally did manage to make it on to the site, very heavy traffic was cause the site to be incredibly slow, these were the options available to me

This lovely little sovereign has a very cool little stamp that makes it specific for today.

Although I was sat there waiting, by the time I got to the front of the queue, all the gold coins and sovereigns had sold out.

I picked up my maximum allowance of 3 silver proofs and they should be arriving next week. Once they do, I'll may do an unboxing video, but I will definitely get some shots of the coin close up. I'm hoping that because I was one of the first, my CoA number will be low enough to pick me up a premium when I come to resell it.

Did any of my fellow #steemsilvergold crew, here in the UK, manage to pick any of the gold proofs up, or first day sovereigns?

Yesterday I swapped silver for weed before I had checked the silver price ☹️ live and learn!

Im far from any news so I only know about brexit happenings from this post haha! So silver shot up because brexit?

Nope!! Silver shot up because the world's screwed and silver and gold are the only forms of "real" money that have stood the test of time over all of human existence.

Across most of human history the value of gold to silver has been around the 14:1 ratio, it currently sits at 85:1 (approx), so in my opinion, gold WILL NOT crash, so that can only mean silver has a long way to run to get the ratio back to where its always been throughout tjme.

I was explaining to someone here in scandanavia that 30g of silver is (was) costing the same as a family size pizza at a take away and how undervalued it is, but i had no clue it had gone up 😝 Its not goung down ever thats for sure!

I don't think anybody thinks anything is going to happen tomorrow. The danger was before the Withdrawl Agreement was signed and sealed that the UK would leave with no deal. Everything carries on as before until 31.12.20. The UK still pays into the system and has access to single market and customs union.

The question is what happens on 1.1.2021 Will there be a deal or another extension of the transition period or will the UK leave with no deal?

The only difference until then is that the UK has no representation, can't veto laws it has to obey until the end of the transition period, and I (as a UK citizen living in France) no longer have the right to vote in the local elections in the town I live in (coming up in May) as you have to be an EU citizen to vote. But that is democracy for you!

Those are really cool coins! I can't believe how long it took to get the Brexit done. I mean, I was wondering why they bothered with a referendum if they were just going to try and overturn it. So much for democracy in the UK I was thinking.
