Silver mistakes - yours or others

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. Bit of a newb here. 

Not made the mistake yet but hoping one of you can prevent me doings so! 

I’ve recently started stacking gold and I’d like to buy some silver coins to diversify. But the premium of mintage and VAT (UK resident) is too much for me to stomach. I really fancy the coins rather than bullion bars. So I’ve found what looks like a reputable dealer from the US on eBay selling silver Canadian maple leaves at a reasonable price. So my question is, if these arrive at customs with a true declaration of the contents and their value (£350ish) will i get a tax bill from this side? Are they exempt because they are legal tender? Or am I going about this totally the wrong way altogether? 

Thanks in advance for any help and apologies if this isn’t the correct thread, I didn’t want to start a new one.

Telling others that silver is a good investment and that I stack silver.

Best keep it quiet. It isn’t easy and most of us if not ALL of us go through the stage that we just want to share the light to everyone else.

Silver is a great investment only because everyone else doesn’t think it is.

You may want to consider UK britannias for the tax advantage.

Oh, and the milk spots.

I think my mistake was not getting on gold earlier, for the tiny 3% premium plus the tiny storage - while keeping silver for one-of-each collectable enjoyment.

But if I can get sterling under spot, i'll still stack it to the rafters.
