    ilovesilverireallydo reacted to Serendipity in Pound-Cost Averaging   
    Any stacker/collector like myself who purchases gold and silver coins at regular intervals rather than all at once with a lump sum is involved in pound-cost averaging. Pound-cost averaging is a technique that reduces exposure to falling markets from investing a lump sum. By investing at regular intervals more coins are purchased when precious metal prices are low and fewer coins are purchased when prices are high. The investor will be better off in falling markets.

    I believe this is the UKs smallest official gold coin. 1/40th Britannia face value 50pence. I have had them in packs before but never in hand. 
     
    5p for comparison

    You would be very lucky or connected to get silver bars at spot unless you buying 100 ozzers and then you back in the zero sum game lol

    You are likely to make a loss in that situation as premium on silver is high straight out of the door in the UK. 
     
    take an example of a gold sovereign at £290
    Cheapest CGT silver you can buy right now   would be Brits at roughly £15.50 an oz (if you are lucky) 
    So you need 18.7 silver Brits per Sov
    The premium on the sov is £6.
    The premium on equivalent Brits is £1.90 per coin or about £35.50
     
    In this instance you need your silver to rise about 4 - 5 times VS Gold to make up the premium. 
     
    Now assume you get your selling price with the premium baked in, and both metals move at similar rates. You aren’t better or worse off. 
    Only scenario where you are better off is when silver premium moves in double digits percentage while gold only moves in single digits. 
     
    When I started off I bought pre47 scrap as close to spot as possible. I would then flip it when I can get 20% on that value and change for Sovs. For example I bought 10kgs at £0.17 a gram and flipped it when I was getting £0.22 a gram. Waited for spot to go down and bought sovs with difference. 
     
    Flipping silver to gold needs calculated strategy and frankly cgt vs cgt has no upside. Buying scrap and flipping for profit or coins that may gain in value is the way to go. The only Bullion CGT coins that have delivered upside in my experience are the QB lions (£4-10 over issue price) and griffins ( £20-35 over issue price). I flipped a tube of Griffins which I bought for £32 each at £57 each. 
     
    Now going to 1 Oz Britannia- you could instead aim to buy sovs which always earn 2-3% premium over spot. Full gold Britannia often come up on on the forum for way less premium so you could flip sovs into Britannia and net average 1-2% difference. Done at scale it’s not a bad way to go.
