I'd like to buy some (maybe a few hundred) coins using either Swiss Francs or pound sterling, but it seems the existing markets are primarily requiring US dollars.

Does anyone know where I can make such a trade. Is my best bet to use PayPal or something like that to convert my currency into dollars then convert again into BitCoins?

hmm, I collect foriegn notes, and do not have either of those.  Are you willing to go out on a limb and risk sending those notes by international mail?

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

I also accept GBP, but I have high fees in order to convert to USD.

I'm in the US. You would have to send them to me via international mail which I have done before with one other person.

Ah, I also live in Zurich :-) Maybe we should get a beer on the Langstrasse sometime!

Right now I have something in mind I want to buy from somebody who accepts BitCoins, so the exact amount is pending negotiation. I'm just trying to figure out ahead of time where to get them. I'd be after a fair old number of bitcoins ... at current exchange rates maybe a thousand.

Nice to find people from around here, yes we should definitely grab a beer sometime.

1'000 BTC is quite a large order, I'm not sure I can spare that many at the moment :-)
