    In my head I have committed to every pretty shiny coin online. They just look so good. I love the Somalian Elephants more than anything.

    I have made a few Videos with coins that I own and or wish to sell. I have tried to make my Videos tongue in cheek and not taking myself too seriously. The Graham Diamond Coin Show is on You Tube and the Silver Forum,  I Love Coins Me!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sovereigns is same as silver coins vs kg. You need a few quid sell 1 quickly, not waiting for someone looking for an oz. Although in fairness dealers will buy back from you (at a loss to you)

    There's definitely an argument to be made for having smaller coins, say quarter ounces or sovereigns because they're easier to sell and mean you have more flexibility when it comes to selling.
    Important consideration is that coins are exempt from capital gains tax, but bullion is not.

    I had no idea they wouldn't take coins. Any idea if its the same in the UK?
    I'm going to look into sovereigns as I don't know much about them.

    Either a 1oz coin of you're choice or 4 full sovereigns would be my choice.

    Stick with gold coins, coins make you a collector not a Stacker. Here in the United States if the government were to recall gold, coins would be exempt because they hold a numismatic value as wear bars would be considered stacking and qualify for confiscation

    Always best to have a plan in some way. The biggest pitfall of any metal stacker is not having a plan. If you have an emergency and you have not planned and are forced to sell metals then you will probably lose a lot of money. 
    Don't be distracted by the shiny objects! Enjoy them - but respect them because they can bite you in the ass!

    I spend hours looking at youtube stackers in envy, shadow stacker, noobstackeruk, BYB and loads of others. I dont care much about what they say I just sit there and look at the coins in a trance. I was thinking of starting a channel for videos/unboxings just because I enjoy watching them. Does this make me weird?

    I asked this myself early on.
    (Loads will have i suspect)
    A few popular points-
    Coins easier to sell - more people have an oz of money to spend than a kg.
    Kg - heavy to post.
    Coins - takes time and effort to sell a kg worth as singles.
    If you need a few quid you can sell a few coins not a kg in 1 go.
    So all in all its swings and roundabouts really . If you are stacking for weight with a long term goal then buy whats cheapest. 
    You're 1st kilo bar you won't forget ! But neither will you the 1st full tube you buy.
    Food for thought

    The Royal Mint tried to trademark the term "Sovereign" for coins but it was refused
    "In refusing RML’s application, a hearing officer appointed by the Intellectual Property Office noted that coins described as sovereigns are struck by a number of countries, including British Overseas Territories and Commonwealth nations. The officer found that the word ‘sovereign’ had not acquired a distinctive character. A sovereign was a denomination of legal tender and the word did not distinguish coins from a particular source."
    Anyone is free to make a coin/medal and call it a sovereign
