    Totally agree although perhaps we're better off investing in as many companyname.blockchain.com domain's as we can.

    I believe payment goes through another party at time of payment, this could be converted in FIAT within seconds, but thats just my theory, you'd have to ask dealers or online merchants how it all works

    Europeanmint accepts bitcoin - but I cannot for purposes of the group order with them. 
    I would imagine most dealers convert it into FIAT as soon as possible - dealers live or die by their cashflow and you cannot use bitcoin for anything practical for running a business...

    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!!!!!!

    Mariner1961 got a reaction from Pete in Do You insure Your Stack / Collection ?   
    Yes. Took me a while to go through what bits were part of a collection and what bits were individual items, the coins and rounds for some reason are separate from the bars insurance wise. 
    What it did help with was making sure I had the right class of storage to have them covered, they insisted on a rated safe without which you're not covered so it's worth checking that on any policy you're looking at.
    The actual additional cost wasn't much at all.

    I think we are around the €9000 mark - so it should make for a fairly epic unboxing!
    Also...it is going to take me a huge amount of time and effort to organise, sort, check, double check, wrap and lost everything...
    Spare me a thought when adding the "optional service charge" 😉

    I've been a subscriber to Coin News for several years, and for a while they have every month printed a price guide of different denominations,
    This month is the turn of the half Sovereign, so i thought i'd upload the price guide for you. Next month is the turn of the Sovereign.
    How accurate these prices are, well, unless you go through recent realised prices through auctions for each coin you'll get a better idea, but none the less maybe helpful for some
