    Received my 1911 Canada sovereign today, it is my 10th full sov so I’m chuffed! Im not to sure about grade, but I paid roughly the same amount of a Atkinson’s mixed sov. I already have a London mint 1911 so I will put that up for sale to get a different date as I want to try and get a sov for each year (1900-1932)

    Wow, 2017 was a quick one!? Anyone else feel that? It has been a whirlwind last month or so with a huge group order and the Christmas rush too and I am looking forward to a well earned week off! But 2017 has been a really fun year, and I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone on the forum (and beyond!) who has supported directly and indirectly the growth of both Backyard Bullion and my YouTube channel! 2017 has seen the growth of my YouTube channel from 650 subs to 2200 in one year as well as getting my Hallmark registered and building my own Website! I have also had the privilege to work on a couple of great projects for independent shops and of course this forum! There would be too many people to mention by name but I think a special thank you to @ChrisSIlver for the opportunity to create some forum branded silver bars. We made 200 of the 1oz bars and they are all completely sold out! Then we made 150 of the 100g bars, of which we have 35 left (so if you want one just let me know!) These were amazing projects for me to do and to have the ability to support this forum is also a very good thing indeed! We also have spent a whopping £20,000+ on group orders from GoldSilver.be this year and made some simply AMAZING unboxing videos! So, 2018 beckons and I hope to bring you all many new exciting YouTube videos, Hand poured silver, Group orders and more! But for now I am going to enjoy a well earned week off at home, so all that is left to say is... MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!

    Another new addition to the 1/4 oz gold World Collection - Picked up for $100 Less than the list price for a raw coin from the royal mint. I have to say that although many dislike this coin, it actually grows on you the more you look at it. (And No - Not like a wart )

    Latest two halves from HGM, lucky dip style. My first Victoria too! Old Head, a bit smooth on high spots, still pleased with the condition though.

    Late arrival of the 20% voucher, because I negotiated changing the 2018 sov to get their next bullion Veil Head sovereign that comes available. In the same shopping cart, to make full use of the voucher, were various silver things. One was this weirdly toned 5 Shillings. It's all iridescent teal and purple and burgundy in the hand. And my first old Head. After deductions, it cost me £227 total. It's a bit sharper in the hand. My old iPhone doesn't like to gmail me massive pictures. And a bit of bling sterling for under spot too, because why not. Nice voucher haul.

    Finally picked up the two lovely gold one - ouncers that I bought in the dip a few weeks ago. A 2017 eagle and a 2017 anniversary Britannia. Nice to contrast the colour and the designs, with the US eagle of course being 0.917. Sorry about the poorer photo of the Brit - but I am reluctant to take it out of its capsule. Regarding the designs; while the Eagle is very good (and with a big ounce you can see more of the finer details of the eagles nest and the White House ), it does make me appreciate that the Royal Mint here in the UK is willing to take some risks and plays with new tweaks to the designs on the front and back. Lets face it, we do grumble about the RM and pile into them when they get it spectacularly wrong (eg the 2018 lunar dog) but at least they take the risk. On the US side - i guess it would take another revolution to change the design. Maybe President Trump will order a new design - with the genius himself on both sides!? Anyway - back to the final gold coin - a cool pickup from a visit to the LCS when in the States, a 1923 Melbourne sovereign for the same premium as any other bullion. Not in pristine condition, but this was a pretty low mintage by 1920s standards so quite pleased with that. That one goes into the semi-numismatic pile of sovereigns😊. Also snagged a few of the annual silver 1 ounce designs - but my favourite by far is the Netherlands Lion restrike. I could only find the bullion version, but i see now what all the fuss is about....and i may need to track down a proof! Some nice 1990 Canadian maples in OMP - i do like the old maples, and these are in great shape. Maybe being in the wrapper prevents spotting ?

    My first Sovereign from Atkinsons, usually buy from HGM but at the time they were out of stock, Atkinsons was the same price or cheaper (because of free P+P) coin quality is the same as HGM but Atkinsons was packaged better, plus I got a free chocolate coin, might stick with Atkinsons in future depending on price, overall happy even though they had no Edwards in stock.

    Wanted to protect some shieldbacks from further erosion and a very nice result for the 1804 1/3 Guinea (only 17 ngc and pcgs in higher grades up to top graded ms64) and the 1/4oz Britannias. And another free ngc box thrown in for free Also got a free customised bag and a traditional box of cakes and sweets. They like me

    2018 is almost here and I am already planning big things for the coming year! Here are a few of the plans I have for 2018. Leaf Ripple Series This is where BYB started. I stamped a leaf on the rippled side of a pour (to imitate the leaf creating ripples on the molten silver). I pour what I like and what people want. I try new moulds and weights and just pour what takes my fancy, call it dealers choice! The 2017 edition finished with 250 as the final mintage. In 2018 I will be starting the mintage from "001" again. The key part of this series is that every single piece that is made is videoed so that you can see it being poured. They will all be hallmarked and be branded with my "BYB" logo as well. I don't think we will get to 250 as a mintage again as this was stretched over 18 months since I started this adventure. But I estimate that we will get to 200. If you have got an existing piece in the "2017" edition and you would like to reserve your number again then just get in touch and let me know - if you would like the same shape or a different piece making this is totally possible as well! "BYB" Branded Investment Bars I plan on creating a limited mintage of both 1oz and 100g "BYB" branded investment bars for 2018. I am not sure of the mintage at this stage but they will probably be between 30 - 50 "1oz" bars and about 25 "100g" bars. 1oz & 100g Silver Forum Bars We will be creating 1oz and 100g Silver forum bars again in 2018. People who have a 2017 version of a bar will have first refusal of their existing serial numbers. More information on this will come out over the course of 2018. I am planning on having the 1 oz bars to be all done and released by the end of May 2018 and the 100g Bars to be released by the end of September 2018. 250g Silver Forum Bars Yes that is right - you heard it here first! We will be introducing a new weight of silver forum bars, 250g. We have not worked out the particulars at this stage but more information will follow in 2018. If you are interested in this size of bar please let me know. Due to the size of these bars they will likely be minted to order only and over the course of 2018. Brand new and exciting and original hand poured silver special releases Mrs BYB and I have been brainstorming lots over the last few months and have some really exciting ideas for some original designs. We don't want to ruin any surprises but we are quite excited about some of the ideas we have. Hopefully 2018 will see some of these come to life and prove exciting to all of you! Custom made hand poured silver pieces I will of course continue to make new pieces to request for really any occasion. If you want a special something for just you or a wedding, christening, anniversary or "whatever you like" present then just get in touch! Pouring Gold Yes that is right - GOLD - I want to give it a go, so watch this space! Getting the BYB Brand bigger and better! This last goal is to start expanding the BYB Brand to dealers. I am already talking with a few bullion dealers in Europe about some BYB bars that might end up on the global stage. Who knows - but it is one of my goals to get my products listed on some of the biggest dealers in Europe and North America. Along similar lines we are looking to expand to local trade. Small jewellery and nick nack shops in the UK primarily. If you know of any shops that might be interested in some hand made craft work then please point them my way! So as you can tell 2018 will be a very busy year! Please feel free to comment here with your thoughts and feedback! All that is left to say is have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!! and I wish you all a very prosperous 2018!

    Recieved these two beauts today from HGM. Always tend to receive newer sovs from the lucky dip, others tend to get the older sovs. Doesn’t bother me too much. I suppose that’s the point of a lucky dip! Keeping my fingers crossed for an oldie or two at some point though. Maybe in the next purchase 🤞🏻

    My 2017 stack

    So only been buying gold for 5 months and already got a decent amount of gold along with some bitcoin, ripple, iota and ethereum. Now starting about other possible investments. Probably going to put 3k minimum into something next year and narrowed it down to 3 possibilities. 1st is keep stacking gold at 3oz a month 2nd is buy a house just to rent out 3rd is jump into stocks looking at amazon Netflix google and Facebook only just looking for opinions on what others are into, im leaning towards stocks first 6 months of the year then jumping back into gold 2nd half of the year, i Personally think buying the house option would be the worst route but looking opinions? Below is my current gold with my pirates of the Caribbean chest from disney 😂
