    The coin category sadly isn't included in these offers anymore. The only way it can be used is if the seller agrees to change the item category.

    Good finance starts with budgeting. Your stacking budget should be manageable and clearly defined - in that respect it is no different from anything else you buy. Steady disciplined accumulation wins the day.

    This is why homebrewing has suh an appeal. In the South-East you'll be lucky to get two pints for an ounce worth (depending on if you're talking spot or if we're talking actual in-hand price for silver)

    I think there's actually two quite different questions here:
    Stacking approach; I have a monthly budget although I sometimes supplement this by selling other PMs (did a shift over from silver to gold a while back). Generally working on putting some savings to one side while also paying off debts (yes I know this isn't the optimal solution, but it makes me happier), but PMs is only a modest part of that for me.
    Stacking mentality/reasoning; for me it's mostly about savings discipline. Funds in the form of PMs is slightly harder to access so I'm unlikely to unless it's something important. Also because it's only a sort of emergency fund I don't see it getting much bigger than it is currently (enough to cover an unexpected bill or two but not life-savings territory) additional funds are likely to serve me better in stocks and shares. I suspect the approach of accruing large quantities of physical PMs at the expense of otehr forms of investments/savings is akin to stockpiling food and medicine.

    I only started stacking a couple of years ago but stopped for a year to clear all my debts and stopped gambling and cut down on craft beers at home.  I have a minimum target I budget for every year along with cash/ISA/crypto amounts from my salary monthly.  I’m lucky enough to get overtime at work as well as a very nice callout fee if I go in with less than 24hrs notice, that usually goes towards a bonus soverign and a treat for the missus. 
    I’m less wasteful with money now but not tight as I allow an amount for treats/trips every month but I see things in terms of silver.  Two pints of beer, that’s an oz of silver.

    Yesterday I was sitting behind two young people and noticed a U.S. quarter (0.19£uk, 0.22€eu) laying on the floor and I asked the nearest of the two "Did you drop a quarter ?", and she responded no, and then just left it there.  I turned to the other and said "You ?" and he said no, and then they both laughed and said that it wasn't even worth picking up.  I said "Well I'm not to proud to pick it up" and picked it up and put it in my pocket lol.  Brats lol.

    Got this 1943 Jefferson Nickel yesterday just for fun. It was 20p and the bloke serving in the shop really unenthusiastically said “wow 20p I can close early now” lol. I like it and have been cleaning it up with Ketchup. Cellulose thinners did nothing on it but left ketchup on and wiped it off. It now lives in my pocket 😁

    Having bullion is like always having a winning lottery ticket in your pocket just before you redeem it for your winnings.  It is pure possibility, a spring in your step, and a smile on your face, and the knowledge that you alone possess this small treasure upon which nobody can lay a claim.  It's tangible, and its yours, and for someone to take it from you they would literally have to fight you to take it from your hands.  Women will come and go, the stars will twirl around in their heavens, empires will rise and fall, but that bit of gold and silver will be as wonderful as the day you found it - forever a promise of a warm bowl of soup, or some shoes, or anything else your wistful mind might dream of.

    Could be many reasons, but they are all bullish;
    The smart money getting in early. 
    A way to mobilise more gold supply without raising prices (large spread on scrap offer to spot). 
    Preparations to take advantage of some negative event that will see hard up folks willing to part with their wealth at a discount (brexit, more likely recession). 
    Apparently when governments start selling their gold reserves, the bottom is in. The UK did it last time (so called Browns bottom), Canada did it this time perhaps. I hope we get that promised low before it goes off.

    Gold break the $1400 mark starts to head $1500 you will see a lot more of these adverts.
    Several sentiments in the market today, one we now entered a new bull market, two going see $1,500 oz Gold before major selling pushes the prices down, three PMs over the course of this year/next will go back to last years lows and test these prices again. As long as we continue to see the price of gold climb it becomes more profitable for these firms to advertise Cash for your old unwanted gold.

    I don't think it's brexit prep, more like praying on people that believe the government created scare stories and think there will be money/benefit issues in the next few months.

    I've never actually handled 22 or 24ct gold. The few bits of gold I own are either in their original sealed certicards or left in their capsules, even though they're only bullion grade. This is because I've left them attached to whatever paperwork they came with. I don't know if it'll help but I thought it might help with their authenticity. I've never sold any gold so don't know how useful it'll be.

    Here’s my handling collection! Fondling your assets gives you that gold fix we all need. Not everything has to be locked into plastic. The gold 3.2oz cast bar does it for me, with the ‘buffalo’ in support - with 2 great sides to the coin. Just feel those sharp edges.... Phew!

    I look at it, go "oh thats nice" then close the box/bag and stick it in the safe. Every now and then i get some nice pieces out to look at because its comforting to know that should the worst ever happen i have enough gold/silver to get me out of the bad.
    I sleep soundly knowing i have a gold/silver insurance policy.
