    @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

    This is another Gold post - Thanks so much for taking the time to reply Paul. That's a real eye-opener.
     Most of you seem to agree that there's lots of downsides to silver. I don't think I'm going to take the risk...for now at least.
    Will most probably follow your advice and go for Gold.
    Small gold coins in the early days might be the most prudent idea.

    Yeah it was my fav films when Ii was young, and my hair not greying , back in the 2000s in my uni years, when your only worries were your next lay was or where your next pint was coming from and not worrying about proof sovereign sell outs or mintage amounts
    "Choose Life. Choose a metal. Choose a proof. Choose a mint. Choose a f**ing monster box, choose lighthouse, quadrums, airtites and plastic flips. Choose stocks, bonds , and ISA . choose insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose research and reading. Choose a proof 2017 sovereign  on credit card in a range of f**king boxes. Choose youtube. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing ****ing junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pishing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, f**ked up brats you spawned to replace yourself.
    Choose your mid age.

    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

    i have mis-priced  buy it now items on ebay before and had auctions that didnt make what i thought they would
    I honoured the sale although it was at a loss myself.  The price you see is the price you pay.
    If the fault is your own take it on the chin
    Your bottom line always what you look at, you can sheer a sheep many times but you can only fleece him once
