    100g Bar - does not get much better than this!

    I understand what you are saying about getting the posts out sooner - but I am not ready yet. People with bars from 2017 will have first refusal at their existing numbers from 2017 - so 008 is not going to be readily available unless that person does not take it up. I still have 5 bars from 2017 left - which if you purchase then you guarantee yourself a bar for 2018 (if you so wish).

    Yep - it has a calibration certificate supplied with it and I can have it checked annually by the supplier and they re-issue the certificate.

    I have decided to bite the bullet and buy a trading standards set of accurately calibrated scales. It will be interesting to see how accurate my own calibration methods were!

    Plenty more where that came from. I have about 80 of 150 poured so far. I am being a very secret squirrel about them, but announcements to be made in July! Also, I have to start production now because I am on a self made deadline for a trip to the Edinburgh Assay Office!

    This makes for interesting reading. No restrictions other than complying with trading standards. As long as nobody complains and I get audited things are all good! Even if I were to be audited it would be fine, I am using suitable and appropriate equipment and have evidence of the weights too 😉 https://www.gov.uk/weights-measures-and-packaging-the-law

    I am not aware of any law governing weights relating to silver selling in the UK. Purity is guaranteed by the assay office, not weight.

    I have two sets (1 up to 100g and the other up to 200g) and they are both calibrated to the same degree of accuracy, both give the same results. Interestingly, both these scales were over calibrated by 0.1 grams when I got them. Consistent readings of 31.25 for 1 Oz gold coins and 31.3 to 31.5 for silver 1 oz. This is why I recalibrate every set of scales I get hold of to within 0.02 of a 1 Oz gold.

    Sounds like an appropriate solution to me! I thought that you liked my silver because I have you extra! No extra this time though!

    100g Bar - does not get much better than this!

    So, I made two 100g bars today - and when I say 100g, I mean literally 100g. My scales are calibrated pretty accurately - to the extent that they read 31.13 grams for 1 oz gold coins. But the dilemma that I face is that not everybody's scales will be calibrated like mine. The last thing I want as a seller is for someone to get a 100g bar from me, pop it on the scales and it reads 99.98 or 99.99. I would love your guys opinions on these bars - what should I do? I was planning to use them as bars for the 2018 100g Silver Forum bars but as above, I don't want to leave anybody short on silver! Worst case - I remelt them. But it almost seems a shame!

    Any one used goldsilver.be ?

    I know - perhaps Eva watches this forum and they are taking lessons! Hi Eva, I love you. Please can we have our silver now 😉
