  1. Just wanted to start a thread with some drawings I plan to do overtime when I get some spare time. I used to be pretty good but haven't drew in ages so my talents have went down hill. So gonna show here hopefully an improvement every so often and then topic will fit in with the forum. All drawings will be my take on any coins that have came out. If you wish to post drawings to of your take on coins Id love to see them. Some of my drawings including the first may be worse than others as its just for fun to come up with new ideas so any critique or feedback is welcome Anyway here is one I started tonight when I came up with the idea to get the thread going. My (unfinished) take on the Britannia coin. Tried to make the shield look cool with the lines that are usually in the background of the Britannia design which didn't turn out well. The trident going behind the shield while she holds both. Side view was best for me as I'm not great at faces so the helmet done fine. The writing was hard to get correct maybe in future will change the way i done it on my drawing board with a protractor and compass. Recently liked the oriental border on the new 2018 Britannia and this is kind of where i got this idea from. Also see the bezel of some Rolex before looking like this with diamonds. So thought the border was cool going in and out all the way round so it wasn't just plain. So yeah will try and do at least one a week and might even sometimes do a better design than the real thing ( hmm the zombie dog).

  4. Hello everyone I am new to the forum and was seeking some advice. Got quite a bit of a collection left to me from my father with a mixture of coins and bullions (about 40-50 in total) with a majority being 1 oz. I have krugerrands, american eagles, bullion bars, chinese panda coins, elizabeth coins etc. I am unsure where or who to sell it to so I need some advice. Should I sell it to a local jeweller or I am better off finding a collector? Any advice would be appreciated Thanks EDIT: I am located in the U.K
  5. Hello would someone help me please?

    Hello my name is Percy Cateriano, I'm 23 years old and live un Peru (South America). I started collecting coins about 3 and a half years ago and really enjoy doing it. My collection is still pretty small, just about 13 silver coins. I have both a 10 yuan silver Panda (2012) and a 2016 MS-69 Britannia from NGC. I Also have a domestic collection of very beautiful (i think haha) proof silver coins minted from the Peruvian Central Bank as a part of the Iberoamerican Series (1991 - Present) but unfortunately here there are no graduating companies so if someone could help me and give me some advice about how to submit my coins to NGC (I don't wanna become a member of NGC because I have so few coins and I've never done a submition before). Thanks for your help. I'll post some photos of my small collection.

  7. Seling and/or trade?

    I'm trying to figure out what would be the best platform for selling or Trading my coins. If I placed this in the wrong section on the form please let me know. It is my first post. I have a few sets I'm trying to build and I have an excess of kooka's, koalas and those sorts that I'm going to sell or trade not sure which one or maybe both. And with the profits or the training to obtain the missing coins to my sets. I'm asking has anybody had better luck on eBay selling individual or maybe a lot mix up two or three coins at a time with mixed years or? I was considering one kookaburra one koala and then adding a Chinese panda to come up with a mixed bag sort. Any suggestions from other sellers or Traders would be appreciated thanks.
  8. I'm pretty new here and loving the forum (yet to see any negativity at all) I think a pod cast would be a great addition to the forum A live platform for news debate and all things silver and gold Guest could feature with all manor of subjects up for discussion, references to YouTube channels, any shows or exhibitions (like a calendar feature) advice on stacking and the like This may not be feasible or possible but it's just a suggestion from a keen newbie looking to soak up as much knowledge and information as possible Cheers for your interest SS

  15. New Swan Coin incoming?

    As I went to the comment section of the Perth Mint youtube page on their new videos of releasing the new 2018 designs one commenter asked "Swan 2 ???" and the official youtube channel of the perth mint responded with "Stay tuned :)". What do you think, does this mean that they are coming out with a new swan design or a coin similar to the swan?

  17. Just ran across this video on Youtube. Its very well done, especially if you love coins and movies! Note that I have no affiliation with the uploader whatsoever.
  18. hey, I'm young. just bought my first house and I'm working class. I'm not exactly able to throw tonnes of money into gold / platinum etc. so until that beautiful day comes I've taken to silver coin collecting, starting with the Britannia's and queen beast's as they aesthetically. I've collected back until 2011, 2010 backwards seam to be up 250% in price so I understand that the premium definitely increase and makes them a good investment. I watch youtube videos and hear about thing like the lunar series or silver panda's. yet I go to find them and they're either second hand and marked up or not on sale from the original vendors. I also almost bought the firstcoincompany ares god of war but thought "$200 for a coin, that's ridiculous"...only to find it is sold out and going for $1000 on ebaby now...DOH! how do you get a heads up about the up and coming coins? is there central places that are good to find information about what is coming out and a good investment...or do you literately just keep checking the market for new release and make snap judgement. I'm totally new to this and I'm happy to take any recommendations advice on what to do and how to do it. even if its that I've been a twat and britannias are not a great place to start. thanks in advance, Gareth.

  23. Hello everyone, Im Silverwings and I have been collecting silver and gold for 3 months. I had inherited a few gold and silver coins many years ago and decided to research about these coins and found a wealth of information on youtube and I started collecting silver and gold from that point on. Im learning a lot from other stackers as we share information and I couldn't be happier to share with such a wonderful community. Now I found the silver forum and I look forward to communication and learning with more wonderful collectors. Thanks. Below is a link to my first video explaining why I stack in 2017.
