    Queens Beast Bull - First look

    I like the way the 2018 is split. Its as if he is smashing his head through. Is it better to get it pre-ordered or wait a while till the rush ends?

    How do you safely store your stack?

    Kid pops a hotel safe. i understand a camping mallet works well too.

    How do you safely store your stack?

    No. The opposite is correct. From what I have read and seen, striking the safe while turning the handle is enough. Youtube has any number of videos showing how it’s done.

    How do you safely store your stack?

    I have seen numerous videos showing safes being opened by the 'Bump' method, so I am keen to avoid the electronic safes. Any recommendations as to a decent key safe brand? This is all new to me and I won't claim to have a Stack, more of a pile, but I could do with a safe anyway.

    Is silver stacking a loss leader?

    I really appreciate your replies. Eventually I'll mount them on a wall and amaze my friends. Like others have said I could spend the same amount on a bottle of something and watch my brother mix it with Coke. This brings me to my next question.... Why do bars have such a premium? I can understand the logic with coins, but a bar.....

    I meant, if that's the price then that's the price. If I am happy to pay it then, its fair enough. I don't have any experience or strategy. I simply happened across something I liked and if I can leave it for my daughter, then all the better.

    That is fascinating. Thanks. I'm not complaining at all. I could easily spend that on aftershave or other junk, but these do have a lovely look and feel about them. I could easily....get....some....more. BackYardBullion, I cant see the link you shared. I would jump at the chance to put into a bulk buy. Could you please send it again.

    Is silver stacking a loss leader?

    I recently bought the 4 available Queen's Beasts coins because i think they look fantastic, have a great story behind them and the set will look great when all 10 are mounted. This has been my introduction into precious metals. Now, I have been reading up on the subject of silver stacking and one thing puzzles me. Why is it seen as an investment and not a loss making hobby? Please correct me if I'm wrong, but if you buy a 2 ounce coin at £39 with a silver content worth about £24 this has a premium mark up of £15. Which is fair enough. Now, if I sell this coin and I'm only offered around the Spot price, I basically lose around £15. So how can that be seen as an investment? YouTube is full of videos of people with piles of identical coins. I would really like to know the reason why. Thanks
