  1. I've never held stocks before but just signed up with Degiro. Seems an easy platform to use and as others have said, tiny fees. I'm only thinking of putting in about £2k at the moment, and adding more as I go. I'm bullish on the miners so will have to spend some time reading up on some options. Thinking a mix of a couple of speculative ones and 'safer' bets like Barrick Gold etc.
  2. Today I received a lovely shiny 1kg bar from @DarthGareth
  3. Looks like you've started off with a sensible strategy. I was pretty much the same when my stacking adventure started in 2014, with a budget of £300 a month and splitting it roughly 66/33% between gold & silver. As others have said, the UK & Europe trading subforum here is where many of us find the best deals, as well as the European dealers, although postage can be expensive for smaller individual purchases (£24.95 from goldsilver.be for example). Good luck and happy stacking
  4. I believe the 2018 had a mintage of 25,000. There was a 2019 run of 20,000 bars too. It's a beauty
  5. Today I bought a Umicore 1kg silver bar... my first kilo piece
  6. Or since strictly it's the silver subforum... I'll second the earlier 5 onza
  7. I went through a spell buying .500 & .925 silver coins, and found that on ebay I could pick it up for pretty much spot price plus postage. I went with a scatter gun approach, putting max bids in on lots of small quantities and usually winning a few of them. I haven't looked at this market for a couple of years though so not sure if much has changed.
  8. Today I received my Perth Mint 1oz gold dragon coin bar. Beautiful piece
  9. I've had a pot of money sitting from the saving scheme that some of us on the forum did a while back, and finally splashed it today on a Perth Mint 1oz gold rectangular dragon coin. Looking forward to this one, which is by far the most I've spent in one go on PMs. Looks a beauty
  10. Cheap pre-owned Maples at Akinsons. I just bought a tube's worth and still loads left at the moment. https://atkinsonsbullion.com/pre-owned/silver/pre-owned-silver-coins/pre-owned-canadian-maple-1oz-silver-coin-vat-fre
  11. Today I bought a pile of pre-owned Maples from Atkinsons. I had an empty tube which was looking lonely
  12. My BT package claims up to 45MB and it has tested around that figure every time I've tried, so no complaints. It's great for streaming services etc, but for general browsing I see little difference from the old days of 1MB, 2MB, 8MB etc due to the ever-increasing bandwidth demands of general web content - plugins, adverts etc. It can still be frustrating on some sites waiting for the page to load fully before it becomes functional.
  13. My wife and I have been saving into a shared pot and just counted it all out last weekend, coming in at £1900. I had always planned to buy gold with my half and was leaning toward a Mexican 50 peso, however since starting this scheme we decided to put an extension on the house which is now complete and we're about £35k lighter So looking at my savings account makes my eyes water at the moment and I'm not sure if I can splash cash on gold right now... I keep looking though.
  14. Bear in mind that a currency being the 'strongest in 2018' just means that its inexorable descent toward worthlessness is temporarily moving at a slower pace than some others
  15. I have a little BTC but PM's are the much safer bet long term. Two different things entirely I think. You know PM's will always have a floor price as it costs labour and resources to dig them up. Cryptos may well have their uses into the future but fundamentally as an investment I don't see them as any better than fiat money. Each coin may be limited but new ones can come and go and drop in and out of fashion.
