  1. New to Stacking and this is my plan:

    Those 2008 brits are probably the only coin which nearly sucked me to the silver darkside. 6 months on from my original post, I still advocate (and am currently stacking) fractional gold. How is @ChrisF stack 6 months on?
  2. Got an email. I don't know if the prices are competitive , but here you go. https://spinkbooks.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=91
  3. My pet hate

    He has 1 review on Google, 5 stars.....from himself
  4. why do you pay what you do

    Due to VAT (even low German levels) stacking silver is a waste of time in the UK. If you are a collector fine, but for stacking, choose gold. Whilst it is still VAT free anyway.
  5. wanted Looking for some 1/4 gold coins

    Sorry CF, it was me who cleaned out HGM
  6. completed Wanted - Sovereign Tube (empty)

    I have been using 3 pence tubes, usually a few on ebay
  7. completed 1/4 oz, sovereigns, or Francs

    Thanks Ollie, but I am a pure bullion type of fella. Just looking for run of the mill stuff.
  8. completed 1/4 oz, sovereigns, or Francs

    Go for it, halves not for me thanks, and the sov is a Vic.
  9. Hello Looking for a little top up, will probably do so from HGM in the next few days, but if anyone has any 1/4 oz's, full sovereigns (post Victorian), or 20 Francs (Rooster or Vrenelli) that they are looking to sell at HGM type prices I would be happy to hear from you. Thanks Bob
  10. What the graphs fail to show is how much money has been pumped out via QE since 2000. Taking that into account I would say the FTSE is fair price. If it was over 9000 I would worry. Of course, people have been saying a crash is imminent for years (I was one of them), and will be right eventually. All we can do is hedge our bets. I would not be fully invested in PM's or equities at the moment.
  11. FTSE is up about 4% in same timeframe anyway, but 2 months definitely too short a period to judge. 0.6% charge seems hefty against competitors.
  12. New to Stacking and this is my plan:

    Hello Chris +1 for gold. In 25 years you will have a nice collection of spotted silver, which will be worth about spot. So, if you are a collector, good luck, but for stacking, get silver as cheap as you can and hope the metal appreciates in the future or stick to gold. ATB Bob
  13. Hello Madstacks Sorry, not been on for a while. That was a ridiculously low offer, but debt will ruin a company, and I can't blame you for not hanging about. I left shortly after the extension. Was just dragging on too long, and I had better places to put the cash. A good lesson for newcomers to stay away from these bulletin boards, some of the dreamers were predicting £1 a share.
  14. Just Google 'every day items that contain animal fat'. The new £5 note is the least of your problems.
