    Just make sure you have an emergency cash fund first and you dont over stretch yourself on precious metals to a point where you are forced to sell rather than want to sell.

    Personally prefer cast bars, you can have a good old fashioned feel....with coins as such you always have to worry about blemishes/marks which in the long run affect the premium.

    Most things can be copied so I dont think it will make much difference.

    I have a Safety Deposit box with St James https://www.stjames-safedeposit.com/ but they only have offices in Leeds and Manchester.
    Silver weighs to much to put into a Safety Deposit box and impractical. A Safety Deposit box only for Gold IMHO. I would also never get a safety deposit box with any banking establishment.

    Well not in the same league as the previous posts, but here ya go.
     
    Needed some cufflinks and decided to get these custom made by Rob at Coin Couture. I chose to have a pair of Victorian Silver 1887 Sixpences, as I like the shields on view, along with his Antique Finish mounted on a stainless base.
    Cost was a more than the standard coin, but well worth it, 
    Big recommendation to Rob, very talented. Pics dont really do these justice, sorry about pic quality...
     
    edit: Better pics here on  Coin Couture Facebook Page. There is also a Gold Kruggerand made into a ring

    I have enjoyed this thread from the start and I commend everyone involved it has been very civilised.
    I am glad people were not banned as free speech is to be treasured. It keeps us all honest.
    But, and there is allways a but, There are no winners here as arguing on the internet is like competing in the special olympics you may win but your still special. 
    So why don`t we end it here and you do your thing and we do our thing? because to be frank this thread has achieved nothing except increasing my popcorn bill.
    I do love my popcorn though so please carry on if you wish.

    mr-dead got a reaction from AgCoyote in If silver shot up in value.......   
    If gold and silver are shooting up in price it would likely be due to the fact that the world economy is going tits up and things like a property price crash underway.
    I would dump my pm's and transfer into property where it would generate a yield through rent.

    I wouldn't consider myself a "drone" as you put it and to date I haven't used the group buy service.
    In my opinion it can be a bit of a pain making payments to foreign companies, banks charge an excessive fee and other payment services can be less than user friendly.
    I dont see issue with BB doing unboxing videos, it helps promote this forum and compensates him for his time and effort pulling it all together at nill cost to those that participate.
     
    There is obviously a demand for the service as the order values keep growing and to date those that participate are all happy and thats what counts.

    No exciting background story this time, we received it in a batch from a european dealer - who offered to replace it when we found it.
