    Ebay sellers

    Thats why you should buy your silver direct from Europe...... www.EuropeanMint.com & www.GoldSilver.be

    How do you enjoy your gold/silver?

    I am not yet as serious a stacker as many of you here, but I try to always buy my silver in tubes (Britannia's mainly) and always buy 1 extra for every tube I buy. These 'spares' then go in my money pouch for fondling/fidgeting with. My gf thinks I'm pretty sad which seems to be a common theme here lol. Although she was asking if I could buy some gold for here to have a look at. I don't think the silver stuff is shiny (or expensive) enough for her lol

    1/10 oz Britannia Capsules / Tubes / Storage...

    Thanks all for your replies. 1/4 oz are the better deal just that much more each so not so easy to get 1 every month. Despite the username I am in the UK so any non EU (for now) suggestions are not worth it due to shipping costs and potential import duties? I suppose I need to find a site that sells capsules for 1/4 or 1/10 oz coins but with an overall diameter of a larger coin so i can easily find a tube. I will keep digging and let anyone know if I find anything. Also, with Brexit looming (urgh!) part of me feels i need to try and finish my monster box of silver britannia's as much as I can before presumably silver becomes a non investment opportunity due to the VAT situation (other than buying tubes on this site I suppose).
  4. I finally think I am going to pull the trigger on my first gold purchase. I have about 250 oz silver and think I need to at least try and approach a gold/silver ratio somewhat similar to the current $ gold/silver ratio. I have been too-ing and fro-ing between 1/10 britannia's or full sovereigns for the last couple of months. As much as i like the history of the sovereign I think I prefer the idea of starting my collection with 24ct gold at least as a first buy. My intent is over time to fill a tube with these Britannias which leads to my questions.. - can anyone recommend somewhere which sells tubes for 1/10 oz britannias? I can't seem to find anywhere with stock - as they are 24ct even if they will live there lives with me in a tube is it worth putting them in a capsule first for protection? if so can recommend a capsule AND a tube which would then fit them? Is it possible to buy a capsule which is the same size as a silver 1 oz britannia and then use the silver tube as storage as they seem easier to come by? Hopefully by the time anyone responds i haven't flipped back to sovereigns lol!!

    Anyone use metalmarket.eu?

    I am very tempted. Although some of the really cheap silver coins have a 14 day wait for delivery (maples, Britannia) however 1 oz 2019 Roo's for £12.92 (as I type) are available for dispatch today. If I pull the trigger I'll keep you all updated

    Self-Slabbing Coins

    Thanks terakris. What diameter did you go for to fit the Queens Beasts? 38 or 39 mm? Also did you get the red box from the same store? I can't find it on their website on my phone 🤔

    Self-Slabbing Coins

    Would these be suitable for 2oz Queens Beasts? Or is the casing not thick enough?

    Goldsilver.be refuse to send my order?

    seems like GS.be has lost me as a potential customer after reading through this thread. I'm sure there are lots of other people who now feel the same way.

    Silver to Go (or where best to buy)

    Thanks sovereignsteve. I've only used STG previously. Not sure the extra faff with the European Mint is worth it to me for a small saving as I have not used TransferWise or CurrencyFair before. Also, the EM website is quite lacking. No ability to filter is a bit lazy IMO

    Silver to Go (or where best to buy)

    Just been looking at the European Mint and they do seem cheap when prices are in Euros, however as soon as I change it to £ the exchange rate is almost 1:1!!!! What do people here do? I assume you all leave the invoice in Euros and pay whatever conversion rate your bank applies?

    Today I bought.....

    Where did you purchase this beauty from?

    Coin tubes

    This is similar to my situation. I can't find anywhere in the UK where you can get 1/10 or 1/4 Oz Britannia tubes 😒

    Newbie buying fractional gold....

    Thanks for all the responses everyone. Lots of food for thought. Especially regarding sovereign's. Good myself a safe ordered so once that is installed my good stacking will commence 😎

    Newbie buying fractional gold....

    I've never seen a britannia of any size or a sovereign in the flesh before but at least for now I prefer the idea of collecting and seeing pure gold. And i am a bit OCD so sovereigns would throw off my oz calculations....... I now just need to pull the trigger and stop procrastinating!
