    Never mind the election.. a nice 1918 Bombay I Sovereign. Apologies for the pictures - tricky to catch the I mintmark - but it's there, trust me!

    Today I bought.....

    My first Sovereign! Won this 1918-I George V at Heritage Auctions for $300 ($352 w/ buyer's premium). I've been sweating it all week since it posted. There was some early action (starting bid was $150) and then tonight during the live bidding, nothing. I'm stoked to have this to start my George V 1918 set. It'll be on its way to NGC soon.

    GENERAL ELECTION

    I will pick up my winnings today, The Conservatives have only themselves to blame, they had the worst manifesto i can remember, 'trust me whats in the box' manifesto . They clearly thought they could get away with anything. May has turned out to be a weak leader. who advised the Tories that all the UKIP vote would go and vote conservative that also was a big mistake!

    GENERAL ELECTION

    Well he's celebrating like he's won but all he's done is do a lot better than we all thought he would. he's still lost an election.Any other Labour leader would be out by now for not winning. It's like calling it a victory because your team only got beat 3-2 instead of 3-1. He has less of a mandate than even Theresa May and it's about time he realised that. From his attitude you would think it's been stolen from him!

    I am new to Silver

    Hi Mac, In my experience I changed my outlook on silver and stacking in general as time went on. This is probably true with a lot of PM investor/stackers. Back in '08, the thought was (for me) that I was protecting myself and my family from a very possible financial collapse. It later turned into ideas that I would make a nice profit over time. Now, I have more realistic ideas I think. But your point about saving money (in silver) instead of spending on some amazon nonsense or whiskey or whatever is excellent. This is my viewpoint these days. Do I think it will appreciate over time, yes. More than other investments? Probably not for generic bullion anyway. But if it interests you (beyond the idea that it might go "to da moon" someday), then it can be a powerful motivator (and fun way) of saving over time. Gold too (get both ;-) As for the conspiracy theories, you'll find them everywhere with PMs. I just take most with a grain of salt, but realize that even if some are mostly true, it doesn't necessarily mean the result will be higher silver or gold prices. But I do believe that if you take the slow and steady approach over a long period of time (decades), then you'll have an impressive collection (and have fun doing it). Note: if you're into flipping coins for short term profit, check out Shadow stack on youtube. For a more numismatic channel, check on Numistacker. You probably found these 2 by now, but thought I'd mention them.

    Thanks @KDave- I took a better pic at an angle - here you see the "I" much better. It was a targeted 1918 I purchase, and yes, I did pay quite a bit more for this one, at auction - @£350. Looking at the graded coins in MS63 or above I reckon I got a reasonable deal, and you will struggle to see these as raw coins in good condition for less than £350. True - if you happen to bag one of these as a "bullion" sovereign for regular bullion price then that would be a rare jewel...

    GENERAL ELECTION

    Yep they have played a blinder and May did her best to get this result too. The remain argument has so much ammunition; UKIP decimated = people don't want Brexit (obviously this is not the case, but so very easy to spin) Tory lost expected landslide = people don't want hard Brexit. Labour did well = people want soft Brexit. Now the king makers are soft Brexit DUP - there is absolutely no way we are leaving the EU now. Some excellent politics have been played here. The election was basically a second EU referendum.

    GENERAL ELECTION

    It's always been the case that 'soft' means still in the EU, it's just been a smoke screen used to fool voters once again.

    Ah yes much clearer, very nice condition there. I must admit I have a soft spot for the older sovereigns they have a lot to offer and I think trying acquire the higher grades and rarer coins is well worth it.

    First gold purchase

    Hi, IMO for your first Gold buy go for a full sovereign if you live in the UK, you can buy a bullion 2017 at a decent price above spot. I would give the QB a miss that's just my opinion! If you really want one of the coins you said then IMO buy a 1/4 brittania proof as close to spot as possible, I think there was one for sale on the forum just check. Then 2nd choice would be any Perth lunar 1/4 oz. please note the monkey is popular ATM as I think it's been pumped on YouTube, so you may want to buy another year! I like the horse.

    lol yes most paths do seem to lead to global monetary collapse in those videos I don't really know anything, I have a feeling silver will go up or at least holds in value over the years but I don't stack it I only really buy gold I like gold not as much as an investment on it's own but because I don't like to keep all my savings in the bank. I also like gold because I can store or transport £10,000 worth very easily, could pop it in my pocket(s) if need be, whereas with silver it would be a hassle I also like to try and buy numismatics that I think will appreciate in time and I have a pretty good track record with it; The 2017 proof sovereign is a good example, £435 bought and sells for £700 or so now If you're interested in pm's for making money in the short term, the best way to do it imo is to learn as much as you can about numismatics and collected coin series and watch out for bargains or new releases you're confident you can flip

    First gold purchase

    QBs come from the Royal Mint ...therefore quality issues come along with the territory. However - MS70s are still possible with these 1/4 ounce coins. My advice @DanB92? For your first taste of gold - go for a bullion sovereign like the 2017 design, or a Britannia or a Krugerrand. Anchor your gold in something that is recognised and easily sold; then in time you may want to start buying gold coins that carry a premium. Yes - if you can get a QB Dragon 1/4 that looks OK - then you may be able to have a slight numismatic potential - but I would not make that potential the driving factor in choosing a QB. Hope that helps. Lindeman
