    now im confused

    received my 4 oz silver 100$ bill today , well in a sort of gold colour , stamped as 999 silver on it as I understand there were some gold covered copper notes , contacted seller straight away , it isn't toning im sure its the colour of a £2 coin on the bi metal of a £2 coin , im gutted , ahh well probably a return , it looks silver in the photos , like they should , mirror silver finish

    i think this is a good benchmark

    ive recently tried to compare what I think is a good buying price per oz for silver as a good deal , and I don't think this is a bad comparison , at akinsons if you go to their 1kg bars and look at the very most bars to purchase you get a price currently of £15.80 , so if you can pick up the odd coin or two ,at the price you would have to buy 50 + 1kg bars to get the same price , not rocket science I know , but I sort of think its a good gauge on a good deal

    storage 170 oz

    can anyone think of a better way of storage for my silver , I currently have around 60 oz in 10 oz bars and 110 oz in coins /rounds , I have them at the moment in what was a mens after shave set from a chrismas present a sort of large steel tin , where inside I have a couple of tubes with coins in and the rest are just in flip wallets , I realise I can store all my coins in tubes to reduce the size , but ive experienced milking/oxidisation doing this , so prefer the flip wallets , so obviously when I open the tin the coins are all over the place , any ideas how I can get a bit more organised ?

    atkinsons have you noticed

    just noticed lots of silver out of stock at atkinsons especially 10 oz bars , also premiums seem to be a tad higher

    oh dear this guy says down lower

    just flipped onto you tube and kitco news at a conference and the womans interviewing some expert (yohan beebee ) or sounded like that who claims he sees no buulish rise for silver this year possibly $18 and change , she then says what about all the pundits that are predicting $130 silver she asks ,, he replies we don't see that at all ..............wa wa wa whaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrr start the car ......................... ps I forgot to tell the headline of the you tube article ........are we on the verge of a silver crunch .............

    Where Do you buy your Bullion?

    I wouldn't pay more than £16 posted unless it was very nice I gave £35 for a 2 oz silver shield round , £35 for a 2 oz lunar horse , £90 for a pamp 5 oz bar,, £80 for 5 mike Maloney rounds , but then on the flip side I paid £145 for a 10 oz twin towers bars in original seal , £65 for a 5 oz Scottsdale loaf , I try and average £13-£15 for the whole stack , as an ultimate goal I try for spot plus sellers postage the main thing for me is postage so I always bring postage into the price I'm prepared to pay per oz ((£13 per oz is my goal))so for example if I want to buy a 10 oz bar and the item item is £170 plus p and p ill offer £130 all in and the seller to pay postage , (((my view on this silver game in the uk is simply try to do what the americans do , they get deals at cents over spot or a dollar or two and get free shipping )))), why would anyone buy 4 silver items with certificates for £200
