  3. In comparison, if you are holding physical silver and gold, the GSR is much much smaller in 'real' terms x1 'Best Value/Random' 1oz Gold Britannia from Bullion By Post = £1,026 x1 'Best Value/Random' 1oz Silver Britannia from Bullion By Post inc VAT = £19.32 Actual GSR 1 : 53.10 !!! Current Spot Gold £976.54 Current Spot Silver : £11.42 GSR 1 : 85.51 Unless you are paper trading in high volumes or buying VAT free silver by the monster box, the GSR is really not that relevant for average Joe Public collectors/stackers here on forum
  4. where at all possible, establish a good working relation ship with a local coin shop. Saves all these hassles of sight unseen/dodgy eBay photos/telephone promises of condition Buy in person and view with your eyes/loupe and pick what works for you. More you buy locally, more you build a relationship ongoing ANYTHING you are spending £££ three/four figures on, with your earned "blood sweat and toil" fiat debt tokens, should be to "your" quality & expected standard, not the dealers T&C's excuses. Any dealer that used the "its just bullion" cop out simply wouldn't get my fiat debt tokens again in future and would lose my custom also, if your complaint is valid, just name and shame them here for any lurker readers

    Where should I start?

    @nummum i've been stacking over 10 years now, got caught up in the silver buying bug and myself and several others here are very underwater and still nowhere near a profit we expected/wished for/didnt come from the web/youtube silver pumpers out there In hindsight, i just wish i had stacked gold from day one now, one major benefit is the margin spread you pay between buy and sell is so much lower with gold than silver. also gold takes a lot less room up once you get over x500 of silver it is cumbersome and takes up major room Over my stacking journey, I have sold gold coins for profit, have raised the odd grand when i needs some funds. Always easy to add a sovereign to the stack each month and forget about it. the pension fund you can dip in and out of as required. Plus, you know the the fractions of a gram what you stack is always at. Look at spot its £1000, you know you have x100 oz gold = your sat on £100k i like sovereign / quarter oz size easy to liquidate via web/forum sales. folk will risk £200 but wont part with £1k so easily also who harm in just reading reading and reading. more knowledge you learn the more you have less chance to make the mistakes we have all made jumping in with both feet when an early eager beaver also no harm in getting one of every small gold coins in the early days so you have an idea for designs, mint, packing etc pick silver up where you can from good forum sellers when at very good price through likes of @StackSellRepeat @arshimo2012
  7. https://www.bullionbypost.co.uk/accessories/coin-tubes/ Not that I am saying these represent 'good value' in anyway, .......a clucking rip off if you ask me, but if your OCD itch needs scratching they are available to buy in UK
  8. Forum hearsay, web links and personal opinions is not how you deal with your personal tax affairs The fee a VERY GOOD professional accountant charges you will ALWAYS be far less than savings he/she's skills gets for you or they ain't doing their job right CGT is such a misunderstood thing, i would guess 98% of UK folk here on forum wont EVER have to have any worry of it, ever, it is based on the profits you make, between what you buy and what you sell at. Buy at £19 sell at £20 - £1 is your CGT Making a £1 profit, you have an allowance of £12k next year to use. Whoever is sat on 12,000oz (aka nearly £240,000 of silver @ £20oz) they HAVE to sell at a +£1 profit is lacking vision how to liquidate their stack. CGT is based across all investments of course, stocks, shares, interest, dividends, profits etc wife/spouse CGT yearly allowances (sell x12000 oz this year and x12,000 next year) 'colourful gifts" to family/friends, buried/hidden booty for years to come, left in safe deposit for your estate when you're gone, anon paypal/ebay accounts (aspkins.com) to get rid via ebay in various countries, cash for gold buyers, local auctioneers, forum swaps from silver to gold, facebook collectors groups, personal meets, coin fair over counter dealer sales, gumtree/spock/local FB groups = face to face sales, USA travel to dispose at pawn shops, ID not required selling small amounts per deal in UK to name but just a few things Let your creative mind run riot.....................
  9. I would have had a tube or two for the core stack at that price, would get my average costs down a few pence but got a holiday in a couple of months, so stacking is on hold for a little while Best prices I have seen on forum

    Colored Silver Coins

    To be totally honest, some look really nice Would i pay a premium for them coloured ? No - they are still an oz of silver in my eyes and silver is silver in colour, closest i can get an oz of silver to spot the better If one came my way in the secondary market, a quid or two over spot would i buy one, i might do for novelty
