    Just a few words of hello.
    Been into PMs for a few years now. Started modestly with numismatics, now only interested in bullion.
    My stack has grown a lot lately because I've sunk nearly my entire paper "cash" holdings into it - on the basis that fiat money will be dead soon, to be replaced by real money!
    Also own some crypto, just in case...

    ChrisSIlver reacted to BackyardBullion in 3 oz Silver Forum Rounds - support the Forum with hand poured hallmarked silver!   
    2018 is flying by and soon will be at an end! @ChrisSIlver and I have teamed up to create 1oz, 100g and 250g Silver Bars branded with the forum's logo. To add to the forum branded portfolio I am very proud to announce the first notice about the "3 oz forum rounds".

    The 3 oz rounds are hand poured, stamped and finished by myself meaning each and every round is unique in some way. The weights will vary round to round (although none less than 3oz Troy) and the cooling patterns of the silver will also be unique and different for each one. 
    The allure of hand poured silver is growing stronger month by month and these rounds are a brilliant way to start collecting hand poured silver and at the same time supporting the forum and my own business too!
    There are a lot of different aspects to tell you about so I have split this post up into various sections, hopefully this will cover most of your questions but if there is something I have not covered then please feel free to get in touch or comment on this thread. 
    What are the Forum Bars/rounds all about?
    The 1oz, 100g and 250g Silver Forum Bars and now the 3 oz rounds have been created as a way to draw the silver forum community together but also as a fund raising and brand awareness raising exercise.
    Proceeds from the sales of these bars help keep the forum running in the way we have become accustomed to. Premium and Gold Premium memberships go a long way to helping the running of the forum. 
    Also, it is about raising the brand awareness of the forum and to encourage new people to join the forum and to make standard members think about supporting the forum by upgrading their membership or simply supporting the forum on a one off basis. 
    Schedule, production and delivery
    I am working towards a completion deadline of the week commencing 10th December 2018  for these rounds to be made, stamped, hallmarked and ready for shipping. They are all individually made and can be quite tricky to pour and make look good at the correct weight. If there are any delays or extensions to this I will let you all know.
    Mintage
    The mintage for 2018 will be MADE SPECIFICALLY TO ORDER with a maximum mintage of 50 pieces.
    These rounds with only be minted to order - so if we do not get reservations for 50 before the 29th November 2018 then the final mintage may less than 50.
    To secure a round in this year's mintage I will need to receive your reservation and payment by no later than Thursday 29th November 2018. 
    Design and finish
    These rounds are all hand made and stamped. As you can see there are a lot of individual stamps for each round and take a lot of time and energy to get right. In addition to this they are all "antiqued" with liver of sulphur. This process blackens the lettering to make it stand out even more, however this takes a lot of time and energy to do.
    We have once again made the Edinburgh Assay Office Hallmark a feature on these rounds siting pride of place on the front. The rounds will also have a serial number on the sides as well as the 2018 year date.
    The hallmark is a large 2mm one. This costs considerably more per piece, but is with it as the hallmark is the USP of my silver.
    Hallmarking
    As with all of my Hand Poured Silver products these bars will be Assay Tested and Hallmarked by the Edinburgh Assay Office to guarantee the quality as 999
    Serial Number reservations
    Specific serial numbers will be available to reserve on a first come first served basis. To give a fair chance to all interested parties a thread will be made live at 6pm Sunday 18th November 2018 where you can register your reservation for specific serial numbers on a first come first served basis.
    Prices are set as follows
    Standard or Non member price - £77.50 per round
    Premium member price - £70 per round
    Gold Premium member price - £62.50 per round
    UK Postage: +£3 via Royal Mail Signed for delivery for just one round
    FREE UK POSTAGE: if you buy more than one round
    International Postage: Please ask for an accurate quote - however I will offer free international standard postage (small top up required for tracked) if you order 3 or more rounds
    Combined Postage: : It is possible to combine postage with other BYB items and/or group orders to reduce the postage costs and/or achieve free postage for these rounds. Please feel free to ask for more information.
    Forum membership and pricing 
    As you can see there are some very good savings to be had for upgrading your membership - so take a look at the benefits that are available for premium and gold premium members today!
     
    A few notes on pricing
    These rounds are hand poured, hand stamped, antiqued and polished by me. They take a lot of time and energy and equipment to create. These are premium hand poured silver products, not cheap bullion. They are a way to support me (as a fledgling business), my brand and most importantly, The Silver Forum. As I said earlier, proceeds from the sale of these rounds go towards the upkeep and running costs of this forum. This helps keep membership prices as low as possible for premium and gold premium members and ensures that standard members can still use this forum for free. 
    Standard members - The difference in price is as a way for you to support the forum in a one off style payment rather than signing up for membership. But also please feel free to upgrade your membership to take advantage of the discounts available. 
    The price also incorporates the Hallmarking costs, this includes postage of these bars to and from Edinburgh and the application of a large 2mm feature hallmark.
    Payment Information
    To secure the 3 oz forum rounds you will need to pay me before 29th November 2018.
    IF YOU MAKE A PAYMENT PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR SILVER FORUM NAME AS A REFERENCE!!!!!
    You can pay by a number of different methods as follows:
    PayPal F&F: info@backyardbullion.com
    Banks Transfer:
       Account No: 76626253
       Sort Code: 51-70-06
    Credit or Debit Card: For UK customers I can offer payment via Credit or Debit cards - I will need to phone you to complete the transaction. 
    If you are interested then please let me know in this thread or via PM. 
    Also, I welcome all feedback and any questions you might have about these bars. 
    Thanks for reading and thanks for supporting The Silver Forum!

    Hi @EzXps , does your question relate to buying gold and silver from other members on the forum? If so I will move it to the general precious metals section as the reason you likely haven't got any replies yet is that the section you posted in is mainly for people to discuss buying and selecting stocks etc on the financial markets.

    let me know if so and I will move your topic, you should then get more replies

    ChrisSIlver got a reaction from Tn21 in How to trade   
    If you want to buy the actual shares and own the underlying asset (the shares) you will need to buy through a broker, most charge about £12.50 per trade (although some cheaper) so don't make much sense to do unless each trade is sizeable so that the cost of that fee is negligible.

    Note that trading and investing in shares are different, trading tends to be shorter time scales and in and out in a relatively short time frame.

    Buying shares in the UK is relatively expensive and traders may instead use CFD's (Contracts for differences) or other derivatives to trade the market, rather than buying the actual underlying asset they are trading on a derivative that follows the price of the underlying asset. 
    http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/savings/cheap-online-sharedealing MSE website here should be a very helpful read, it is about buying shares.

    I am not sure what platform @RichRock uses when trading.

    ChrisSIlver reacted to morezone in US Coin Blow-Out Sale   
    The forum is used for direct sales to its members so they can avoid fees etc and not for the promotion of ebay listings.
    Another reason is that if we allowed everyone to list their own eBay listings the site would be inundated with sale threads.
    The only exception to this is if an item has been put up for sale and has not sold.  If the item is then listed on eBay, a link can be included as an update.
    Since the USA section has little activity I will leave this thread for now.
    For future reference, should anyone post Ebay listings the thread will be removed.

    i think if you upgrade to a paid subscription your quota is increased. i remember my membership was due for renewal. It lapsed at a time before i thought it was. There was a notice i would have to empty out most of my private messages. i don't delete any private messages. i couldn't work this out and then i realised the paid membership was up. When i renewed, the notice to delete messages went away. If you are serious about buying coins on the forum you really have to have a paid membership. Mine has paid for itself many times over.
