    A tremendous “Thank you!” to @ZGrizzlyWord for this beautiful 2016-W 1/2 oz Gold Walking Liberty Half Dollar Centennial. I have been looking at this since since I read one of the recent articles in “Coin World” concerning the US Mint wasn’t authorized to Mint this coin as a commemorative.

    Also, from @Lr103, I received a 2010 Gold Sovereign Proof at a great price! @Lr103 has some really great coins and is awesome to work with!

    Lastly, had a silver pick up with some 100x 1 gram Silver Bar - Valcambi Silver CombiBar™ (w/Assay)...never know when you may need to pay someone with a pinch o’ silver!

    And BTW, I just got home from work and I wanted to see if I had a capsule to display this beautiful bar in.  For those of you interested in the same, I can confirm that the Britannia bars fit perfectly in the air-tite 10 oz silver bar capsules.  Snug on all sides and top/bottom with no rattle.

    Having followed a lot of @vand‘s analysis, not that I understand most of it☺️, we are probably at a new norm for a while.  We broke $1500 and have been sustaining those levels for over a week. But it is best not to time purchases on the micro shifts in the gold pricing. I am by no means a market expert...just do like I do and keep buying gold (but only if you can afford it)!

    @MESSIAH, I am in the US and don’t normally purchase bullion from UK dealers, but I think Coin Invest is reputable. @HelpingHands, does have a great reco with Atkinsons Bullion. @Frost does a great job highlighting dealers and any possible deals. There is also a dealer directory on TSF...https://thesilverforum.com/dealerdirectory/...part of the fun is doing the research and price comparisons. A great way to learn as well.
    You can also look at The Silver Forum for sale and trade section which will always have done great deals for members. 
    All sovereigns are great to buy!😁

    Hello and welcome to the wonderful world of stacking, collection and numismatics...while not a bad choice on the 1 oz Royal Arms, I would recommend the 1 oz Britannia’s. They look to be closer to spot and if starting out, it would be advisable to start by building out your base. But also consider buying what you like.
    Purchase as close to spot...with the Britannia’s, they are pretty liquid. Somewhat analogous, I built a base of Krugerrands to start out with and haven’t regretted that decision.
    Any considerations on looking at gold fractionals? Gold Sovereigns would be a choice with 1/4 oz Britannia’s as a close second in my opinion.
    Look forward to additional thoughts and recommendations from other great members of TSF!

    Picked up at my LCS today.  I've been wanting to get one of these 10 oz silver Britannia bars for a while now.  Fantastic looking bar.

    I would agree as an American. I couldn't be happier with my freedoms. This country isn't perfect by any means, but we do have an abundance of day to day freedom and plenty of room to exercise those freedoms and our own individual capabilities. I feel very fortunate to live here and am honestly very grateful.

    Good to hear the positive review. I've had terrible luck buying bags at lower price points and find generally something gives up before long - usually the straps. I would certainly consider something along these lines for leisure pursuits - days hike and the like.
    But I'd still strongly urge anyone looking for something to count on in a survival situation to consider an upgrade. If terrible hits the fan and you need to pack and go on foot you'll be glad you spent the cash. After a few miles something like weight distribution becomes a real issue. Even the most essential survival kit weighs more than you'd expect - I remember my weeks worth weighing 35 - 40kg ish. All that weight spread over just two relatively thin straps will seriously mess up your shoulders before long. You really want the weight distributed evenly with the aide of a metal frame over the shoulders (broad straps) and waist. I've had my bag 15 years now. Done hundreds of miles walking rough terrain in the Canadian wilderness and I also use it anytime I travel since it is so comfortable to throw everything in and put on. Easily one of the best things I've ever purchased. Worth every penny.
