100g Hallmarked Silver Forum Bars - Update

Hi everyone - starting a new thread to get the message out wider!

I have been busy over the last few weeks making some of the 100g Silver forum bars!

I am very proud to announce that we have a completed "Prototype" bar and production is coming along nicely!

As you can see we have kept the design true to the original 1 oz bars, but just scaled it up! Everything is hand poured and hand stamped! They will be hallmarked by the Edinburgh Assay Office - as you can see underneath the "2017" this time so as to make a feature of the hallmark. 

PLEASE NOTE WE ARE NOT TAKING RESERVATIONS FOR BARS OR SERIAL NUMBERS AT THIS TIME PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING FOR MORE INFORMATION!

The following contains all the important facts that you need to know!

Total Mintage: 150 (there will not be any further 100g bars minted this year). 

Delivery date: First week of October 2017

Prices: Based on membership as follows*

Standard member £83

Premium member £75

Premium gold member £67

* We feel that these prices are fair for these particular bars based on their quality and the fact they are hallmarked. The whole point of this exercise is to support the forum and promote the benefits of premium level membership. Some of the proceeds from these bars will be used to maintain the forum and ultimately help keep this forum running and keep premium member fees down. 

Postage: +£3 - However free postage will be offered if you purchase more than one bar. International postage will be more - if you would like an accurate quote please get in touch. 

Maximum order per person: 5 bars (initially)

Serial Number Reservation date: Sunday 3rd September 2017 @ 6pm UK time

We have been thinking about the best way to satisfy everybody who might want a bar for the first time and also members who have previously bought the 1 oz bars and want to match their 100g bars to an existing serial number. But sadly we cannot come up with a way to satisfy everybody. 

Therefore we feel the best thing to do is to level the playing field for everyone involved and offer a fair chance for everyone to reserve their desired serial numbers on a first come first served basis. To that end I will be releasing a thread on Sunday 3rd September 2017 @ 6pm UK time in which you will be able to reserve your desired serial number(s) on a first come first served basis. We know that this might not seem ideal to some people but we want to be as open and fair as possible to everybody who might want to purchase a bar. 

I will be communicating more information on this over the coming weeks but if you have any concerns or questions about this please let me know by commenting here or by PM. 

Payment will be required before the end of September to secure your bars and serial numbers. 

Serial numbers 1, 2 & 150 are not for general sale. 1 & 2 are reserved for @ChrisSIlver and myself respectively. #150 will be raffled off to the lucky individual who wants to own (and pay ;)) for the last number in the mintage. 

@ChrisSIlver and I hope that you really like this design as we have worked hard on them over the last few weeks/months. 

More information will follow in due course - but in the mean time if you have any feedback or comments please leave them here or PM me!

very nice i love the stamping, these are going to be very popular ;-)
