Welcome to Alchemist 100.

We have a bumper 76 page, souvenir edition lined up for you.

We’ve attempted to pay homage to the Alchemist through the lens of some of the key sectors and characters of the bullion market. Our contributors, which includes all the former Chairmen, CEOs and an array of other industry experts, were set a brief to reflect back on the last 25 years of the Alchemist since it was first published in 1995. They’ve highlighted not only what has changed (or not changed), but more importantly why, from the perspective of their own field of expertise.

We’ve also looked at some of the stories behind the front covers and injected a bit of humour into proceedings by including some of the great quotes and cartoons that have appeared in the last 99 editions.

We hope that this helps bring to life the past editions of the Alchemist and reminds readers about some of the stories they either didn’t know, or had perhaps forgotten about.

Here’s to another 100 editions.
