  1. On the 1st June 2019, the price of Silver Premium Membership for new members purchasing Silver Premium Membership will change to £4.49 per month, or £49.90 per year. Those on an older pricing system or those on the current system will see no change in pricing, providing you continue to pay the renewal invoices on time your membership will remain at the current price. Those who are considering purchasing Silver Premium Membership may wish to do so before the 1st June 2019 in order to lock in the lower rate

  10. Hi Rul and welcome to The Silver Forum
  11. Terrible story and I hope he is OK after the attack. There are some terrible people out there. Best place to keep your gold in my opinion is fully insured and in a safe deposit box.
  12. You're going to be sorted when it comes to retirement
  13. Very nice of you to offer this to forum members.
  14. Thank you for your question @blindguy . It is completely FREE for private individuals to list items for sale on the forum and the forum does not take a percent of the sale. You can if you wish purchase premium membership to help support the forum, one of the benefits of premium membership is seeing trade listings 3 days earlier than standard members, more info here: https://thesilverforum.com/premium-member-package/ Those operating as a business require a licence to list items for sale, more info here: https://thesilverforum.com/topic/7121-business-sellers-dealers-please-read/ If you refer to the UK & Europe trade section, the pinned topics are useful to read, they apply to all trade section locations and not just UK & Europe. They include the Quickstart guide. Members trade on the forum at their own risk and the forum does not mediate any trades or disputes that may arise to trading with other members. There is however the intermediary service provided by backyard bullion as mentioned above.
  15. Hello and welcome to The Silver Forum!
  16. Topic moved to the Buy & Sell section
  17. I would also advise to try to get it exchanged if possible, as it is a proof coin and not a bullion coin.
  18. The rules have now been updated and current shows as: As you have read the rules you would have noticed the part that states "Any members with genuine concerns or comments about how to improve The Silver Forum are invited to send a private message to ChrisSilver." The best way to proceed in the future if you have any questions or concerns relating to the wording of the rules or just any suggestions of improvements in general would be to send me a private message.
  19. Just noticed on Buckingham Collection's website that estimated dispatch is 7 to 10 working days. And also delivery can take up to 28 days. Also states: "Orders can only be made by phone" Yes, from just need to make sure it is a UK credit card, not debit. As only credit cards are covered by section 75. Also needs to be over £100. I am unsure if Section 75 applies to cards issued in countries outside of the UK. It may if the products are purchased in the UK? I am not sure. If any members would like some more info on Section 75, there is some useful info here: https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/shopping/section75-protect-your-purchases/ also note the part that titled "If there's a third-party payment processor, Section 75 may NOT apply"
