    Today I Received

    Today I received a 1/4 ounce Gold Britannia. Just steadily adding to the very modest stack, not very interesting you might think. But the journey DHL managed to send it on is the real story...longest route from Bristol to Cambridge ever?

    Today I Received

    Full tube of 20 x 1oz silver philharmonikers. Just building up the stack at reasonable cost after got a bonus this month. Ordered from GSbe on Friday, arrived today. Obscene amount of bubble wrap and good condition coins. Pleased.

    The Ultimate - "Show us your stack" Thread

    This is mine a month ago, 1 year since I started stacking silver. Made a couple of mistakes but mostly happy with what I have.

    Self Assessment Income Tax

    I am an accountant so couldn't bring myself to pay another accountant to do it for me. I filed mine a couple months ago and I'm also Paying via my tax code next year (smug face). I Was tempted to clear the amount in one go but couldn't miss the chance to milk HMRC from a cash flow point of view by paying tax owed for 16/17 in 18/19

    Audit time everyone

    Saw this thread a a few weeks ago and liked the idea. Just collected my final order of 2017 from the post office so took the opportunity for a photo. Only started buying silver at the start of 2017 so I'm quite proud of the modest stack I've gathered. Disappointed to find some toning on just one coin, a Panda, which was a bit of a surprise (most people would have bet on that big maple leaf I'm sure!).

    stacking goals 2018

    As for silver I'll be continuing the bullion series and date runs I've been gathering so far which would account for maybe 15 ounces, then pick up a cheap tube of pure bullion 1 oz silver from Europe at some point. So probably no more than 40 - 50 ounces in 2018 I think. I hope to gather a couple more 1/4 oz gold britannias too.

    What Watches do you own!!!

    I got it from Amazon. Search for the model SNK805K2. It came with a green strap but I got the brown one separately (also from amazon). The watch has proved accurate and reliable so far. Great for the price I paid although looks like it's gone up a bit since then, which is odd.

    Group order turned up today. Very pleased, although the RM lunar dog is even more of an abomination in real life!

    2018 Rwanda Lunar Dog

    That coin is a dog indeed... after seeing this and the RM coin it seems it is very difficult to create a nice looking Lunar dog coin, even for this mint that made the best rooster.

    What Watches do you own!!!

    I recently picked up this Citizen perpetual calendar chrono which I love, and had intended to become by every day watch. But then, I took an interest in automatic (mechanical) watches and picked up the seiko 5. I've changed the strap and now love that almost as much even tho only 1/3 of the price and far fewer bells and whistles. It just sits nicely on the wrist, is nice and light, and the second had sweeps smoothly. Plus it has a see through back so I can admire the movement. The rolex is my pipe dream watch for now. Perhaps for my 40th...gives me a few years to justify it [emoji3]

    Today I Received

    Collected my coin from BYBs group order from the post office this morning. My first ever 10 oz coin and a nice momento/reminder of lovely family vacations in Vancouver and Toronto recently. No milk spots so far [emoji41] although I'm not too concerned; I Wanted to add 10 oz and this appeals much more than a plan silver bar.

    Stacking for children.

    I started with collecting/stacking silver partly as a way of hoarding something to pass down to my daughter (who is about to turn 2), but I have now decided the silver is for me to do as i want with and to enjoy. Instead, I recently decided i would start to gather some gold coins for her and bought my first one ever a couple of months ago (a RM Lunar year of the Sheep). It will only ever be a modest amount, but its something nice to pass down and Gold made more sense than silver over such a long time period. I keep track of the silver purchases and sales very closely, and am specifically collecting certain series / date runs etc. However on the gold side i'm just picking up the odd thing here and there when i have some spare cash and putting it aside to forget about - hopefully it will accumulate nicely and have some variety.

    Signed for delivery/post

    As above, this happens to me occasionally and i agree it is somewhat questionable on their part but since we are often out at work during the day i am actually grateful as it saves me arranging a trip to pick to the PO to pick up the parcel.
