    What a coin.... 🤗😍 1853 Proof, nothing much more to say but wow! I suspect many don't even know this rarity even exists, very very few in existence now. Pictures (especially from phone) don't do it any justice, so I will do a 4k video at some point so others can enjoy it

    Today I Received.....

    This is a belated "today I received", because after a very public hallmarking failure at the Edinburgh Assay Office due to silver contamination, this BYB gold bar was hesitant to leave the pouch However, it eventually mustered the courage to emerge, with the help of these gold eagles which it turns out are 3% silver. The bar began to realize there is other gold bullion in the world that contains even more silver, but is still widely accepted. Now well adjusted, and comfortable with its silver content, the bar has joined the stack and exists in harmony with bullion of all shapes, sizes, and metal content. A huge thank you to @BackyardBullion for doing on awesome job with this bar, as usual!!

    La la la...la la la....Libertad! Received these beautiful lumps of Gold in the last few days- a spotty 2011 1 Onza Bu from Atkinsons, I should add that I was aware of the Spots prior to buying- but at +3% it’s worthwhile getting the wire brush out. The 2016 & 2017 1/2 Onza PP’s from @muenzdachs thanks Sören. The two 1/2 Onza Reverse Proofs from Emanuel at @RoslandGold. The imposter is the 2018 1/2 Onza Bu, also from Rosland- a bit of a miscommunication with Emanuel saw its arrival - but the replacement 1/2 Onza PP is on its way. Just working out a way of raising the cash to keep the Bu- great sales strategy Emanuel 🙄😂 My favourite size the 1/2 Onza

    Almost to the end of the year collection has arrived... Decided on the 2019 1/2 oz Gold Libertad BU for this year. And now for some silver treasures! From the immense talent of hand-poured Silver, @BackyardBullion, has provided me with this year’s 2019 Silver Round collection...incredible, simply incredible...TSF 5 oz Silver Hammered Round (#19/25, as selected by BYB) and two TSF 3 oz Silver Rounds (#26 and #27). And the much discussed 2019 Una and The Lion 2 oz Silver Proof. Quite a beauty that stands the test of time in design and craftsmanship. And lastly, a little fun with some Silver PEZ! A 2019 30 gram PAMP Suisse Snowman PEZ Dispenser & Silver Wafers (w/Box & COA). This is staying completely packaged to avoid any mistaking as real candy...and prevent anyone taking a potentially painful chomp into a Silver PEZ!😂 There may be one more special set arriving before the end of the year! Please stay tuned...and wishing everyone a joyous holiday season!

    With the huge ridiculous 2000 oz group order landing in the not too distant future I wanted to give an update about future group orders between now and Christmas. Also, we have an exclusive discount code to use with European Mint for 50% off shipping, continue reading to find out more! First - The future of the Group orders for 2018 This latest order is nearly 2000 oz's. It takes a lot of time to organise, process and arrange. Not to mention take delivery and package to everyone involved. When I say Mrs BYB and I are somewhat quaking in our boots at the anticipation of the work ahead of us these next two weeks it is not an understatement - putting it bluntly we are bricking it! We have also got a lot on in our personal and professional lives right now and as such we are going to have a breather from group orders - not a long one, but we need a break. Our plan is to run only one more group order between now and Christmas. We are going to open a 4 weekend long group order starting on 27th & 28th October and finishing on 17th & 18th November. The plan is that we can get things done and delivered in the first week of December. This will be the last group order of 2018. We are planning to use BOTH Goldsilver.be AND The European Mint. We know there is still demand for using GS.be because of the range of coins they have to offer. However it would be unwise to ignore the competitive prices available from the European Mint. More information on how this order will work will follow in due course. In the meantime, consider yourself warned about the next group order! EXCLUSIVE DISCOUNT CODE FROM THE EUROPEAN MINT!!!! So, that leaves a fair old gap between now and the next order. You might be wondering how you are going to buy your cheap silver without the BYB's to help! Well you still can. I have arranged an exclusive discount code with The European Mint for 50% off your ***shipping costs*** for any order of any size. This code is exclusive for Silver Forum members and as such I am not advertising this code on YouTube, just here. ******Please note that the 50% discount only applies to the base cost of shipping, you are still liable for the "VAT" or tax on the shipping costs. This code is valid immediately and will be valid until 21st October 2018. To take advantage of this offer use the following code: "TSFBYB50" You will need to add your code AFTER you have selected your shipping options for it to apply - like so: In aid of full transparency - I (BYB) do NOT collect any commission from the use of this code, it is simply something I have negotiated on the silver forum's behalf. This code can be used more than once and there is no minimum or maximum order required to use it. This shipping discount, combined with the cheaper unit prices per coin (for some coins) will actually make using EU mint cheaper than GS.be for most of your basic bullion coins, including the Queen's beast series. A massive thank you to The European Mint for offering this discount code, they did not have to do this and it shows how much they value our business! If you have any questions or would like to add anything please feel free to ask here or drop me a PM. Thank you all and enjoy your shipping discount!

    Thanks to @BackyardBullion for creating this Gairsoppa shipwreck recovered silver hand poured bar and round. The bar is just over 1kg at 1075g The hammered round is also Gairsoppa silver at 5.05oz and is designed as a tribute to the Bombay Mint stamp on the orignal 1000+ oz bars sunk then recovered. The wooden box is an ebay cheap one with a 3D printed insert I designed, printed then flocked for a smooth velvet feel. The QR code takes you to BYB's pouring video on YouTube and it also contains a micro SD card with hi-res images, videos and forum links to the bars creation process for provenance.

    Been a bit excited for the last few weeks, but today I finally received this 30 g golden beauty! Hugest of thanks to @Marc Long story short, i'm a bit of a fan of The Phoenix (sentimental place from my uni+ days), hence my collecting of most things Phoenix such as the dragon and phoenix coins here! https://thesilverforum.com/topic/11158-today-i-received/?do=findComment&comment=247324 During my many discussions with @Marc i told him about my affinity for Phoenix coins and he showed me one he had. From that moment i wanted it. Just loved the super design with the Phoenix and obviously the gold! I've got to learn more about the history behind it too. I think he was very reluctant to let it go, but i'm chuffed he did! Here its is, A 30 g (¥100,000) gold proof (PF70) coin commemorating The Enthronement of Emperor Akihito (Heisei). This emperor recently abdicated, the first time an emperor has done so in over 200 years. They are not rare coins, about 100,000 of them in proof, but they are very scarce outside of Japan. Now that the emperor has abdicated they probably hold a bit more historical significance! There's quite a story about the Japanese 20 g gold coin from this era, but maybe @Marc can tell that story in another post!

    This trio of México Gold has brought some light to a murky Yorkshire day. A 1926 50 Pesos Centenario, a 1959 (Restrike)Veinte 20 Pesos & a 1907 Diez 10 Pesos. The Cinco 5 Pesos is en route. This trio joining the 1946 Centenario and Dos Pesos, only a 2 1/2 Pesos to source.

    Here is the completed project. It took some time to get all the coins - but I think this is a good first start to a world silver coin collection. I am now working on the ngc version with coins I couldn’t find at decent prices in pcgs holders. all coins in 70 condition and 1 ounce of silver.

    Received a good collection of US Gold...Huge “Thanks!” to @ZGrizzlyWord for the additional 2016 Centennial Gold coins. Firstly, the stunning 2016-W 1/4 oz Gold Standing Liberty Quarter Dollar Centennial. Also, the diminutively attractive 2016-W 1/10 oz Gold Mercury Dime Centennial. Had to go for a little pre-33 coinage as well, with the latest addition of this beautiful 1899 $5 Liberty Gold Half Eagle! And to round out the gold with a touch of silver, in compliment of the 2016-W 1/4 oz Gold Standing Liberty Quarter Dollar Centennial, a grand original 1917 Standing Liberty Quarter Type-1 in BU!

This set now joins my other beautiful 3 gold coin premium set, I bought a few months ago, thanks to @Numistacker , and my silver coins. Now I just miss the 5oz Gold (with a low premium of course !) Did I say that I love these 2014 Britannia ?

    Received two packages today one from @BackyardBullion acting intermediary for the sale of 1 oz Gold Queens Beast Lion coin between @Bizzle and myself. BYB packaging as always excellent. The last 1 oz Gold Lion I was after helped me to complete stack of 10. The European Mint delivered the last shipment of 1 oz Gold Queens Beast Coins the set Bull. European Mint communication and packaging has been excellent. My stack gold now complete until next QB 1 oz Gold release. Collected 10x of each 1 oz QB Gold coin. Going into private non-banking related safety deposit box but it will be a real shame when I don't have them nearby to hand any longer.

    Not all "Received Today" but seen for the first time together today... now on the way back to the Bank. Apologies for the quality of the pictures (taken by hand with my Mobile) that don't do the coins justice. Any marks you think you might see are on the plastic cases as the coins are 100%. I've also got all the Boxes and Certificates for all of these coins. If anyone has either a 1979 Proof or 1996 Proof Full Sovereign that they no longer need that they feel would Grade as a perfect 70 (or if you have one already graded 70) please get in touch as that would help me complete my 1979 to 2019 date run all in Proof 70 Grade. All of my set are PCGS except for 2 which I will get Crossed Over to PCGS.

    My latest purchase arrived from Heads or Tales, the 30 oz Minotaur. I actually purchased this 55 oz Bastet XL a few months ago, but realized I never posted pics back when I received it. And a pic of the Bastet XL with the 45 oz Anubis XL. 100 oz of silver between the two. I'm a big fan of the silver statues made by Heads or Tales. I've purchased 7 or 8 of them so far. They are pricey on a per oz silver basis, but if you can appreciate them for the artwork rather then the silver bullion value, they are fantastic, and I highly recommend them.

    Better late than never, only just had a chance to get everything together. Full gold stack, been exactly 6months, im 2 sovs shy of aprox 30oz which is my short term target. Will continue to pick up the remaining beasts and also some sovs but slowing down a lot unless theres a major dip in prices as have other projects starting soon.
