  1. Quarter Ounce Gold Pandas

    This afternoon I found a bag of sealed (well two aren't) quarter ounce gold pandas in the strongroom. If you're on the wishlist we'll be contacting you once we've had new photos and priced them up. We use the wish list so that if you are on it, we will offer the coin to you before we pop it on the website. If anyone wants to be added please let me know email address, name and what you're looking for - by DM. We don't have everything but you'd be amazed what we uncover - we're using a new warehousing system which makes it easier for us to let you know if an item is in stock but we've got one more big safe to catalogue so you never know what we'll find.
  2. There are great group orders from Europe into the UK, and I hear about a group grading order too, but does anyone do any group ordering or arranged deliveries from the USA to the UK? I keep hearing about their near-spot purchases & below-spot junk, and it would be brilliant if there's some way to arrange it to save participants money collectively. I assume the major problem would be customs interception. Would that only apply to silver, for VAT purposes? And is import duty / VAT charged on all kinds of silver even if it's government minted with face values? I suspect I'll just have to stick with orders for silver. As for gold, still shopping around to find a good place for Sovs, until my local antique shop gets some in.
  3. Hi guys 😃 Ive been evaluating my stack and have realised over half its monetary value is in collectible coins. Its made me question my buying/exit strategy. When the time comes to sell my gold, I'd like to do it as quickly and as effort free as possible. Thus, I have come to the conclusion that good portion of it should be bullion for easy exiting. The only problem I have with this is I love collectible coins. Bullion can be so boring!! Even so I'm going to focus on bullion for a while to swing the balance slightly. What do you guys think? Do you think over 50% of your stack should be in bullion? Or do you have most of it in collectible coins? I'm interested to see how the majority of people devide their stacks. And how they control the collectible erge for gold haha.

  5. My first oz of Gold. Going the 'right' way?

    My first oz of gold, is there a 'better way' to stack/collect? I haven't as much money as some, plus it stops me from buying more guitars.
  6. au ag augur

    Hello everyone, As it might be the same with most newbies, the combined force of the queen's beast with all its iterations has gotten me into numismatics and stacking. Not much to the name, just condensing aurum and argentum and the hope to see the signs (augur) into an alias. I wish everyone milk free silver (beasts) and look forward to draw on the combined wisdom of the forum for future forays into precious metal. Have a nice one augur
  7. libertad mintages

    Does anyone know a reliable, updated source for Mexican gold libertad mintages by year? I've found some CoinWorld links that may have been accurate at the time, but as I've learned from a past Numistacker youtube video, the 2015 mintages were declared and then later revised up. Thanks in advance!
  8. Premium of Proof coins over bullion grade

    Hi everyone, Just wanted some thoughts how much of a premium one should pay for a proof coin over say an equivalent bullion grade. I know its depends on the year, mintage, rarity etc But 20% 30% Reasonable?
  9. Is there a way anyone knows of gently cleaning a proof gold coin without destroying the surface? I have a ultra-sonic jewelry cleaner, which I've used for cleaning dirt off lesser quality coins, but scared to use on a proof gold coin. Also, can NCS do anything? I plan on getting it graded in the future. Thanks!
  10. Just want to get some opinions. I have much more silver than gold currently (in terms of $ amount anyway). Been thinking lately of using a large chunk of the silver (bullion) to finance some gold purchases (mostly bullion but some numismatic). This would be a long term hold for me. I told myself I would wait until the silver/gold ratio comes down before swapping anything, but honestly I'm more interested in gold lately, and I don't see the ratio changing much. Although if things really do heat up in PMs, silver will probably move faster to the upside. Is my thinking wrong? I'll have fees and some lost premiums to deal with, and time and effort. Anything else I should consider? Thanks in advance for any opinions Edit: I'd also be very interested in what everyone thinks is a good % balance of silver and gold in a collection.
  11. A Chinese Ebay buyer ordered an expensive ancient greek silver coin ($750) and when I went to the US post office they warned against sendg gold and silver into China because it was likely to be confiscated even though we were shipping it registered and insured mail. Does anyone have experience with shipping into China? Any advice would be greatly appreciated because the order is waiting. Thanks

  14. Thoughts on 9ct gold jewellery

    Guys what do you think about investing in 9ct gold jewellery? Do you think it's worth investing in it? If yes, why? If not, why? I want to add jewellery to my investment portfolio, hence why i'm interested in your views on this topic. I'm asking about 9ct gold jewellery in particular because of its affordability. Have any of you guys invested in 9ct gold jewellery? I know that 9ct gold jewellery contains only 37.5% pure gold with the rest made up of other less valuable metals, but does the very low gold content put you off from entertaining the thought of investing in it? Would love to know your thoughts.
  15. The Royal Mint signature gold service

    Hello, Ive been stacking silver the last few years and own a very small amount of gold but after emptying my ratesetter amount, i need to move that money somewhere else. I had thought about just buying a load of sovereigns but then i came across this and seen you can invest from only £20 and they claim you get close to spot. You are charged 0.5% of your holding vaule once per year for storage fees and you can not take deliverly as you are buying into a 400 oz bar, hence the close to spot price. I am not sure about it because i have always read if you dont hold it, you dont own it and i have told this the people as well. I am thinking the royal mint should be safe enough but its still breaking the rule. Was just thinking it could be a very liquid way to hold gold while adding little amounts here and there, while continuing to adding to my silver stack. I tried to search the forum and google with little results are honest reveiws. Has anyone ever used this are something like it?

  17. Has anyone noticed that there seems to be something of an inverse relationship between bitcoin (and other cryptos') and PM? Back in 2011 when silver and gold where at their peak gold at $1800 & silver at $49 bitcoin was trading around $10, now bitcoin is pushing above $2000 and gold and silver have dipped to $1260 & $17. My point is as many observers are saying that cryptos' are in a bubble, are we heading for a big up swing in silver and gold? I have the feeling that when silver and gold last plummeted many speculators switched into crypto currencies as the next big thing. So perhaps if bitcoin and other altcoins have a market correction then silver and gold will spike again. Let me know your thoughts.... Ps I mean no offence to anyone who owns bitcoin or other altcoins, I see their value as a useful currency and potential investment I just havent got my head around the risks and trading strategies.
  18. Hello Silver Forum! I've been on this forum for some months, but never introduced myself here. I'm a US collector of Silver Britannias and Lincoln Cents mostly. I recently started a Queen's Beast collection and occasionally am a sucker for random beautiful coins. I have a few bits and pieces in my collection that don't fit anymore and will be looking to sell some on this site and eBay. Looking forward to interacting with all of you!
  19. Hi guys I learn something everyday so I thought a today I learnt thread could be fun. I'll start off... Today I learnt.... to ask if a coin comes with a box and COA before buying it. School girl error!! And that pobjoy mint have screwed up on the penguin 50ps I ordered a few weeks ago. Great for me as they're now gonna be error coins so probably worth more.
