ChrisSIlver reacted to BackyardBullion in 100g Hallmarked Silver Forum Bars - Update
Hi everyone - starting a new thread to get the message out wider!
I have been busy over the last few weeks making some of the 100g Silver forum bars!
I am very proud to announce that we have a completed "Prototype" bar and production is coming along nicely!
As you can see we have kept the design true to the original 1 oz bars, but just scaled it up! Everything is hand poured and hand stamped! They will be hallmarked by the Edinburgh Assay Office - as you can see underneath the "2017" this time so as to make a feature of the hallmark.
PLEASE NOTE WE ARE NOT TAKING RESERVATIONS FOR BARS OR SERIAL NUMBERS AT THIS TIME PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING FOR MORE INFORMATION!
The following contains all the important facts that you need to know!
Total Mintage: 150 (there will not be any further 100g bars minted this year).
Delivery date: First week of October 2017
Prices: Based on membership as follows*
Standard member £83
Premium member £75
Premium gold member £67
* We feel that these prices are fair for these particular bars based on their quality and the fact they are hallmarked. The whole point of this exercise is to support the forum and promote the benefits of premium level membership. Some of the proceeds from these bars will be used to maintain the forum and ultimately help keep this forum running and keep premium member fees down.
Postage: +£3 - However free postage will be offered if you purchase more than one bar. International postage will be more - if you would like an accurate quote please get in touch.
Maximum order per person: 5 bars (initially)
Serial Number Reservation date: Sunday 3rd September 2017 @ 6pm UK time
We have been thinking about the best way to satisfy everybody who might want a bar for the first time and also members who have previously bought the 1 oz bars and want to match their 100g bars to an existing serial number. But sadly we cannot come up with a way to satisfy everybody.
Therefore we feel the best thing to do is to level the playing field for everyone involved and offer a fair chance for everyone to reserve their desired serial numbers on a first come first served basis. To that end I will be releasing a thread on Sunday 3rd September 2017 @ 6pm UK time in which you will be able to reserve your desired serial number(s) on a first come first served basis. We know that this might not seem ideal to some people but we want to be as open and fair as possible to everybody who might want to purchase a bar.
I will be communicating more information on this over the coming weeks but if you have any concerns or questions about this please let me know by commenting here or by PM.
Payment will be required before the end of September to secure your bars and serial numbers.
Serial numbers 1, 2 & 150 are not for general sale. 1 & 2 are reserved for @ChrisSIlver and myself respectively. #150 will be raffled off to the lucky individual who wants to own (and pay ) for the last number in the mintage.
@ChrisSIlver and I hope that you really like this design as we have worked hard on them over the last few weeks/months.
More information will follow in due course - but in the mean time if you have any feedback or comments please leave them here or PM me!

As mentioned you should upgrade to gold membership if you intend to trade professionally on this website or link to your own commercial site.
Also, your website states that you only ship to Germany, you are aware that the majority here is from english speaking nations...

Hello to the members of The Silver Forum.
My name is Steven and I am the Senior Product Manager at BNT.
Firstly I would like to apologise for the delay that a number of you have experienced in receiving your orders. Unfortunately this was outside of our control but we have worked hard to expedite things and I am pleased to see that coins have started to arrive. We do have some new processes in place and we hope to achieve faster deliveries going forward.
I would also like to respond to the comments about seeing prices change on particular products. Firstly, if you have placed an order for a coin at a specified price, providing we have stock of the coin at the time the order is accepted, you will pay that price. And, orders are processed in the order that they are received, so even if someone buys the same coin at a higher price, they will not receive theirs until your order has been fulfilled. However, at times our site is very busy and the number of orders that we receive for particular coins is greater than our immediate availability, and in these cases we have not been able to fulfil the order straight away. While we always endeavour to get more coins, in some cases we are unable to due to overall demand in the UK.
Please be assured that when you order with BNT, your payment card will not be debited until the order is fully processed and despatched. So if in the unfortunately circumstance we are unable to complete an order, you will not be charged. We do endeavour to contact customers to confirm this at the earliest opportunity.
Finally, I have just checked our stock and see we do have two Strike on the Day Sovereigns available for immediate despatch. I have hidden it on our site for now so members of The Silver Forum can have first option to buy, you can find it directly by following this link - www.bnt.org.uk/royal-mint-sovereign-2017-strike-on-the-day-anniversary-piece-gold-coin
Thank you for your patience with the recent deliveries.
Kind regards, Steven.

As title really. We've had egg shaped coins, spherical coins, cylindrical coins & pyramid shaped coins just to name a few.
Coming sometime this year will be a bottle cap shaped coin.
Link to company producing it. They've been involved with a few licensed themed coins in the past.

Paying via 5 monthly installments of £106 as per original plan. In excellent condition, so no sloppy seconds either...
ChrisSIlver reacted to 4Nines7Hills in Ledger nano S space issue top tip
@ChrisSIlver no I'm using the Blockfolio app not sure if its better it was the first one I fund
Top Tip Two - Ledger Nano S
For anyone who owns a Ledger Nano S and like to invests in ERC20 tokens Try: https://www.myetherwallet.com/
The Ledger only supports ETH, ETC and a couple of other ERC20 dedicated apps but MyEtherWallet web wallet has full ledger and trezor integration and supports all ERC20 tokens.
To manage your Ethereum account, go to MyEtherWallet website and select the "Send Ether & Tokens" tab. plug your Ledger device, enter your pin to unlock and select the Ethereum app click on "Connect your Ledger Wallet"
NOTE: to use MyEtherWallet turn on the browser web support found in the settings of the Leger app on the device to use the ledger Ethereum chrome app you must have Browser support turned off.
ChrisSIlver got a reaction from Jay2 in How to trade
If you want to buy the actual shares and own the underlying asset (the shares) you will need to buy through a broker, most charge about £12.50 per trade (although some cheaper) so don't make much sense to do unless each trade is sizeable so that the cost of that fee is negligible.
Note that trading and investing in shares are different, trading tends to be shorter time scales and in and out in a relatively short time frame.
Buying shares in the UK is relatively expensive and traders may instead use CFD's (Contracts for differences) or other derivatives to trade the market, rather than buying the actual underlying asset they are trading on a derivative that follows the price of the underlying asset.
http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/savings/cheap-online-sharedealing MSE website here should be a very helpful read, it is about buying shares.
I am not sure what platform @RichRock uses when trading.
ChrisSIlver reacted to 4Nines7Hills in crypto strategy
thanks for all your input guys. I've put a hell of a lot of research into cryptos, but as i only started six months ago i have a long was to go before i consider myself an expert so any new information, ideas, predictions or theories are still very much welcome.
for me cryptos are definitely secondary to PMs, but they are well worth some investment due to the huge gains possible.
