  1. I have never collected scrap silver..just need a ball park figure for about 30 ounces
  2. 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.

Inform, Educate and Inspire We would love to say that our motto is to "inform, educate and entertain” but unfortunately Lord Reith beat us to it at the BBC about 100 years ago, so our motto is “Inform, Educate and Inspire.” Our websites are about a 50 / 50 split of information pages and product pages. We prefer to give our customers good quality, impartial information and advice, to help them come to the best decision, rather than use pushy hype and salesmanship. In an industry where knowledge is key we believe it is extremely important to be transparent, and we publish our premiums so they are there for all to see. We are happy to discuss our margins with anyone who asks and do not hide behind prices or complicated formulae. Over 50 Years In The Industry It’s hard to believe that we have now been in business in sunny Blackpool for over 50 years. We have seen precious metal prices fall and rise, VAT added to investment products and then removed, the United Kingdom join and (possibly) leave the EU and we have seen nine prime ministers! From our small beginnings we have now developed into a multi-million pound business, employing fifteen members of staff, serving customers all over the world and still working on the same basic principles. 2017 UK Bullion Dealer of the Year For the third year in a row, we have been voted the UK Bullion Dealer of the Year.

  5. Hello Silver Forum, I'm in a bit of a dead-end regarding a numismatic hunt and would like your help. I've been a big fan of the Royal Mint's Britannia series and may be an Anglophile in general, so I was naturally drawn to the newly designed 5th definitive portrait design of Queen Elizabeth II. The designer who won the competition to be the engraver for that portrait (most likely the last one ever of QEII), is also the designer of the infamous "booty" Britannia proof coin of 2014 (image below), and the Queen's Beast series of coins that was introduced last year. If you haven't guessed by now I'm a fan of Jody Clark and his work. What I'm having difficulty with is finding more information on his other designs. So far I've discovered he designed the 2014 Ryder Cup silver medal (there are two versions of the medal but same design), a 2014 NATO Summit medal which was given to the Heads of State in attendance, and even the reverse of a Tanzanian coin (all pictured below). Does any other Silver Forum member have information on Jody Clark's other designs which were done for Lesotho (a medal), Costa Rica, Azerbaijan, or any information on the design's mentioned above? I've written to the Royal Mint to find out more information, but they haven't responded and I doubt they will. It wasn't a question about an order and I'm not residing in the UK so I bet my email was tossed. Appreciate the help all! D

  10. As the title says, what price would silver need to be for you to sell if any? I personally plan to stack silver until the stg ratio is around 40-1. I will then swap about 90% of my silver into gold and start the stack gold until the stg ratio is around 60-1 to swap back into silver. I will rinse and repeat this until i retire. I have about 35 years the play with so i would hope to the complete this cycle at least once within that time. So for me its only important what the spot price is for whatever metal i hold in around 2050. There are alot of around and about's there, i always try the plan easy. One thing i learnt is that life have to many variables to plan 10-20 years ahead. I could be living in a different country in 10 years are both the kids could have become independent, you just do not no. Better just to keep a main objective. If i had to put on a number on it within the next 5 years, if it went to £45-50ish, my plan might change and i would buy a rental property and restart the main objective and start stacking again from fresh.
  11. Hi, Was just wondering if anyone knew anything about when the next one in the series is going to be released. It feels like it been a long time since they released one and i would be disappointed if they were stop the series, especially after releasing £100 and £50 coins. I have collected a few of each coin so far and am hoping in a few years i will have a pure (all bought on release) royal mint date run collection. Its the only coin i buy from them as im a stacker so its normally STG are for me, but i just like this coin.
  12. Morning, Thanks to Bosse68 for telling me about this place. I'm awaiting an order from SilverGoldBull. Ordered some 1g Gold Pandas. I'm going to stack gold exclusively. I may diversify the type of coins I buy but have yet to decide. What was your first Panda you bought? And did you keep it or sell it?
  13. With all these fakes on ebay do members check their coins before selling or do they assume they are genuine ?
  14. Hi this is my first comment as i have just joined..i have started silver stacking last month..2 x1 kilo and 75 1 oz coins brought in 2 transactions from STG There prices,packaging and keeping me informed were question is do they check all their coins for authenticity or do i have to go through each one before i order more
  15. Golds gone up and up since january as you all know, its nearing 900 now but how long do people think it will take to breach the 900 mark? im guessing 2 weeks from today. ideal for me becuase i invested in early january when price was 709 :-)
  16. hi everyone, what coins should i definitely be in my collection and what coins should be last in the queue so to speak? i am picking up that certain coins will appreciate more than others each year. any advice would be great.
  17. Hi everyone. Can anyone recommend any little independant shops in the UK that sell older american "junk silver" coins. I know you can get them on ebay but i like to look at my coins before they come in the post. ive emaileda few coin dealer in cambridgeshire, but half of them dont even sell the basics let alone the american stuff. Thank you in advance.
  18. Kilo silver bars & 1oz silver coins now available. Silver American Dollars : 2012 Silver Britannia's- 2012-2014 Get them before they are gone!!
  19. Would you as a customer prefer a 2015 sealed sovereign or a Victoria Young head 1887 sovereign?. We are trying to find out what our customers prefer & coins you are looking out for? Melbourne mint. Sydney mint? Old? New? George, Edward, Victoria, Elizabeth.
  20. What was the last silver coin you found in circulation? I got a 1963-D dime two days ago. I work at a convenience store, and a guy paid for his merchandise using the dime. I've found 4 or 5 war nickels, around 35 silver dimes, 3 or 4 quarters, 3 Franklin halves, and 5 or 6 40% silver halves in the last year and 3 months. I had no idea so much silver was still out there.
  21. Anyone a fan of government minted fractionals? Particularly the older coins such as some of the old French/Swiss/South African coins etc? Seems like a fair few have quite low mintages, just wondering what others think about these?
  22. What would your tips be for picking up coins that appreciate in value? There are so many coins/rounds out there that it's hard to know. I understand that it depends on luck sometimes, since certain designs appeal to the masses but are there other coins/rounds that are seen as "must haves" in a collector's box for their appreciatory qualities?
  23. I'm looking at picking one up, came across one called "Collector's Coins GB" publisher is Rotographic author Christopher Perkins. Anyone got this, if not, what? This is it on Amazon
