Today I bought.....

Recommended Posts

Delivery is going to take a few weeks, but I will upload a stock photo......

 

Just realised though that currently can only add a photo into a thread if it is hosted elsewhere, by inserting a url. This obviously is not a good solution.

 

I am going to try and get something sorted so all users can upload photos directly to the forum. I will post once its all set up, hopefully shouldn't take me too long.

Today I bought a 2002 Britannia to complete my 2nd (and last) full date runs of Britannias.

Also bought a lunar series 1 rat / mouse. That's my third, and have a deal going for 2 more. That puts me nearly half way there!!!

Just sold a few bits and bobs on eBay so have £350 to drop on silver next week.

Probably will complete my date runs of fiji taku, Noah's arks, and philharmonic. There are a few others I fancy too.

Awesome, I just realised there is another way to upload photos. Need to click on "More Reply Options" on the bottom right, and then can upload and then "add to post" photos that you want.

I am currently unable to take any photos of any of my coins or bars as I am not currently at the same location my stack is (will hopefully be able to take some photos within the next few months) so if anyone else has any photos to share please do :)

How many years is a full date run? I like the Fiji taku and Noah's ark coins, don't have any of either, nearly bought a tube of Noah's a while ago from Germany before the tax went up to 19% there, now I am regretting that I didn't, as the silver that is available tax free in EU is a bit limited.

What do you think of the philharmonics, compared to other bullion coins in the EU I think they work out the cheapest per oz. For some reason though I dislike them, there is something a bit boring about them.

 

p.s. don't worry I will get the tapatalk thing sorted shortly

Today I finished off my taku and noah date sets (the sets are only small).

Also bought a Philly, eagle, falcon, koala, kookaburra, panda, and maple.

All 2014.

Need to decide the next set to start, it'll be whichever I like best out of the 7 coins above.

1kg Lunar horse about €555, 1oz kooks about €19.70. Tax free from libertysilver.ee But have to add shipping on top, which is pretty expensive as have to arrange for a courier to collect from estonia.

How much did you pay for a roll of lunar horses? I didn't manage to get any horses, I guess they are going for quite a lot now?

The horses were a trade. I swapped 30Oz of Perth Mint bars for them plus some cash. They are pretty expensive now, yes. They will be limited to 300,000 coins, and no one knows how close the mint is getting to that figure.

I wish I could afford to buy a roll of each, sadly I'm a singles man.

Never even held a roll.

 

 

I traded most of my rolls in for gold to make transport to the UK easier. 2 rolls of 2013 Kooks, 2 of maples, 1 of Austrian Phillies.... Very sad :(  But I could not resist grabbing the above when they came up. :)

Agreed, good plan.

Depending how much gold you end up with, it should be easy to keep in your wallet.

 

So far I have traded about 10 Kg of silver.... and I have a small wallet :huh: Looks like I will have about 6 Kg to bring in with me, after recent aquisitions. Was hoping to get it down to less, but just can't part with it. I spent years putting the collection together. SBSS, some local Australian mints, 1966 Round 50c coins (80% silver. Works out that 3 make up one ounce. Perfect SHTF coins) Just too hard to let it all go. Broke my heart to get rid of my Pamp - I had a 1kg and the most gorgous 1/2 Kilo Lady Fortuna. :wacko: 2 of the Perth Mint 20 Oz bars that they no longer make. They would have attracted a nice premium in years to come. Hey ho. Such is life. I didn't know we would end up without a visa and having to return to the UK when I started. So will be starting again when I get home! I guess that's the good part lol!

You are totally right on both counts!

 

I made a lot of mistakes when I started as I didn't know whether I was a SHTF 'buy silver for security person', an investor, or a coin collector. So I ended up getting a lot of stuff I din't need, and a lot of bad deals.

 

I will let the GSR make my dcissoions for me regarding the swapping back to silver. Anything above 66 or 67 will suit me! Don't know how likely that is though. Not in the short term I wouldn't have thought. It has not been that high since about 2010. In 2009 it went over 70!! Over 80 in 2008!!! If it does that again this year you won't see me for dust, I'll be swapping like a loon lol! :blink:

 

I did most of my swaps at about 62-point-something so in order to make a little margin on it I certainly hope to be able to afford to hang on till it gets to 67. We will see what the gods send us though, huh? I need to make something as I actually lost a lot of money having to swap unexpectidly when my visa fell though. GSR is all well and good, but $ for $ value I lost a lot. EG I paid $700 for my 20 Ounce bars and at GSR had to swap them (allbeit 2 years later) for $500 worth of gold. :angry:

6kg of gold would definitely need a big wallet.

I can only imagine how much space you would have had needed to bring back that value in silver.

I am with you on the lady Fortuna, they are really nice bars. I have a 500g one. Would love a 1kg though.

I don't think he has 6kg of gold, I think that's the gold & silver combined if I'm reading it right.

But if he has, fair play. £150k in gold, I'd like that. Almost a third of a ton in silver by my calculations, don't think that will work with the Ryanair baggage allowance!!!
