Its best most times to not put all your eggs in one basket and have possibly a mix of silver, gold and platinum, and possibly a mix of coins and bars, funds allowing, there is 2 ways of collecting, buy something you really like, that way if the value drops you dont mind being stuck with it, the minus side is you might be hard pushed to want to sell it when the time comes, so in that case buy something more bland like plain bars, this will help you get more for your money and hopefully you wont be as attached to it (unless you are Golum out of Lord of my Ring films).
Just my view and not neccesary suitable/correct/desirable for everyone.
Hello, received quite a few coins this week. The last package was from an Australain eBay seller and included the proof 2002 1/2 sovereign, 1990 silver £1 proof coin, the 1995 £2 2nd world war silver proof and the 1986 U.K. BU coin collection. A bit of a mixed bag and was really only after the 1/2 sovereign but the others are nice looking coins.
