    ASE sales collapse.. Are *you* still stacking?

    Hi Jester, just like you I am not an invester or owner of any crypto currenices However I thought the basic premise of cryptos was that it was a decentralised ledger of account, installed and shared by its users (allover the world) and updated with every new transaction. Like a paper notepad writing down each new transaction and sharing it simultaneously will all its users to be verified before any new transaction can take place, this prevents fraud, debasement and manipulation... Unlike if one person i.e a central bank had control over the money supply. Looking from the outside it appears that the large demand for crpytos is from China citizens, and I'm sure the Chinese government will have some concerns about that and potential capital flight that may unfold

    With some comfort room I did pay less than that. Came with orginal box and coa so was pleased all round, I guess I was a bit anixous as it as my first gold purchase... I'll put some photos up on forum when I manage to take a decent picture

    Premium of Proof coins over bullion grade

    Hi everyone, Just wanted some thoughts how much of a premium one should pay for a proof coin over say an equivalent bullion grade. I know its depends on the year, mintage, rarity etc But 20% 30% Reasonable?

    Are we a rare breed?

    More like 1 in 10000! It's difficult to put an figure on the average savings per household in the U.K. as often the stats used in quoted articles include pension and home equity. Considering the savings rate fell to 1% last month and the rise in unsecured borrowing credit cards and PCP finance for cars since 2009 I wouldn't be surprised if Silver Forum members are in extreme minority.

    New to Stacking and this is my plan:

    Hi Chris, As others have mentioned the millking issue with Canadian mint coins, I started out buying the odd coin from ebay including maples and superleafs 1.5oz (look great) however six months afterwards they milk. I tended to go for the maples as they were marginally cheaper than other bullion mint coins. Cheapness doesnt pay. Yes UK Britannias are CGT exempt but they are something for a bulk buy rather than as a single collectable; compared to say the more semi-numisatic coins like the Perth Mint lunar series. Watch the Gold/silver ratio (Currently 74) its been a while since its 'favoured' gold over silver Find something you like the look of and brings enjoyment from stacking/collecting and go from there. The fact that you're interested in silver (or gold down the line) puts you ahead of the rest of the poplus Regards Silver Sheriff

    Very heavy day indeed. Not that I'm complaining that Silver is falling in price for future buys

    Hi all, Just thought I'd put up a post announcing myself as I have been following the forum for a while without becoming a member; but changed my mind recently as I’ve decided to pursue my silver ambitions and to participate in the silver community rather than remain in the shadows. I have been an avid follower of several forum members’ youtube videos and hope to learn and share further Regards SilverSheriff
