    ChrisSIlver got a reaction from goldmember44 in Does it bother you in the U.K. that the queen is on coins?   
    I haven’t read all of the posts in this topic, but this topic is in the general precious metals section and titled “Does it bother you in the U.K. that the queen is on coins?”
    Not sure where it has gone off topic but somewhere it has.
    May I ask that those wishing to discuss religion, aliens or the pope etc start a topic in the relevant section. Non PM discussions topic: https://thesilverforum.com/forum/8-all-other-non-pm-related-discussions/
    All posts with unrelated content to the original topic here after my post will be deleted. So please start a new topic.

    Please help the USA and Canada trade section grow and help promote this incentive on YouTube!

    Please help spread the word of this promotion on YouTube, the more entries we have and the more successful this first month is, the more chances there are that we can increase the budget. We hope to run this promotion month after month until the USA and Canada trade section is extremely active, but we need your help to grow the forum! Please help by letting others know about this incentive/promotion on YouTube!

     
    Get paid to sell on The Silver Forum!

    Receive $10 per completed sale, sent direct to your bank account!

    Get Paid to sell on The Silver Forum, USA and Canada trade section. You will get a massive $10 USD for every completed trade that you make! A completed listing counts as one that money has been received and the item has been dispatched.
    This is open to any completed listings in the USA & Canada trade section, and listings with international buyers still qualify, e.g. if you list an item in the USA but sell to a buyer in Europe then you would still qualify for the $10

    How to claim: After completing a sale. All you need to do is send a private message to @ChrisSIlver with a link to your for sale listing on the forum and proof that money was received for the sale (please blank out buyers personal information, email etc, or have permission from them before showing me a screenshot with any personal information in) we will then send the payment and mark your for sale topic as incentive payment sent  

    A maximum of 5 payments per member will be made, with a maximum current budget of $200 for January 2020, this amount may increase mid promotion. We hope to also run the "Get paid to sell on The Silver Forum" Incentive in February, Marc, May etc etc, but this will depend on how successful the promotion is, so please please help promote it by mentioning it in a YouTube Video!
    This is January's Incentive, but we have decided to start it early to see how successful it is, note we may increase the incentive mid way through depending on the success. Any items that are listed from now (time of this post) until the end of January are applicable to get the $10 for, subject to budget (initally set at $200 but may increase) and a maximum of 5 payments per member in this January incentive.

    Premium Membership has always been marketed as "Unlimited listings in the Buy, Sell, Trade section." 

    Standard members have however, up until now, enjoyed no limitations on the amount of listings they can create. This was deliberate, in order to attract more trade topics whilst the forum was growing. 

    On average there are now over 300 trade listings in the UK & Europe section per month, (With a high of 352 in one of the previous 3 months) roughly there are about 10 new listings per day, listing can contain multiple items, so this is a vast amount of precious metals that are trading on The Silver Forum.

    To fall in line with our original plans from 1st January 2020 standard members will be able to post a maximum of 1 trade listing per month in the UK & Europe trade forum. (note that editing a topic to add additional items to try to circumvent the limit will not be allowed)

    All Premium Member groups will be able to post an unlimited amount of listings. Tp upgrade to Premium Membership please see: https://thesilverforum.com/store/category/2-premium-membership/

    We will be closely monitoring new topic statistics to make sure that this does not have a negative effect on the activity of the trade section. We are expecting any impact to be minimal as the majority of trade topics are by premium members already, and we hope that other members choose to upgrade too. For clarification a trade listing counts as any topic posted, (e.g. for sale, for sale or exchange, wanted etc)

    ChrisSIlver got a reaction from Stu66 in 2020 Premium Member Price Change   
    2020 TSF prices and comparison chart
    Each year the hosting costs of the forum increase. To continue to expand the forum and to help cover the costs of running the forum as well as new promotions that we will be running next year to try to increase trade in the US & Canadian section as well as increasing overall memberships we will increase prices of new premium membership purchases from 1st January 2020.
    Note that this price change will not affect any existing premium members, providing you pay your premium membership renewals on time you will remain on the current rate that you are on.
    My aim is to eventually be able to work on the forum as my full time job allowing me to dedicate more time to the continuous running and improving of the forum and to have time to develop new and fun games and prize draws for our members. Our ultimate aim is to become the worlds biggest and greatest forum for all things precious metals related and to eventually have much larger one off promotions and draws, as well as becoming the largest marketplace for the sale and exchange of precious metals.
    We thank everyone for their continued support of The Silver Forum, especially those premium members who are helping to grow the forum. And thank you to everyone for being part of our community.
     
    The new prices (for new purchases) as of 1st January 2020:
    £5.99 per month for Silver Premium Membership (less than 20p per day)
    £49 yearly Silver (less than 14p per day)
    Saving a massive 31.83% vs monthly
    £7.99 per month for Gold Premium Membership
    £69 yearly Gold (less than 19p per day)
    Saving £26.88 vs monthly
     
    £9.99 per month for Platinum Premium Membership
    £89 yearly Platinum (less than 28p per day)
    Saving £30.88 vs monthly
     
    Those on an older pricing plan will see no change in their membership prices policing they continue to pay the renewal invoices on time.

    To see the current rates and if you wish to lock in the current rate please purchase premium membership before 1st January 2020 by seeing here: https://thesilverforum.com/store/category/2-premium-membership/

    Just in case you aren't aware. The for sale section is for items listed on the forum.

    You are allowed to reference to a listing on eBay but only for reference, if your item is listed there you would need to be wiling to remove it if someone wanted to buy via the forum.

    Not all received today, but are being ‘shown today’ for the first time.
    A few months ago, I fell for these ‘Sovereigns of South America’ (same size, weight etc as the British Sovereign), and started to hoover up as many as I could!
    The more observant might have noticed a couple of them appearing on Numi videos recently (1917 and 1966). Lots more heading to NGC soon I hope😃!
    Some of these ‘South American Sovereigns’ can have ridiculously low mintages (see numista) https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces46644.html
    but sell for reasonable prices 🤑...just got to love them 😀.
