  1. Still picking up the odd bit of silver when I can, these arrived this week.
  2. 1oz Silver Britannias and 1/10oz Gold Britannias for the foundation. I do buy other stuff when I can, I know when pecious metals have a price hike, I will be tempted to sell for quick profit. All the odds and ends will go, but I'll try my best to hold onto the Brittanias.
  3. Monster Box of 500 Silver Britannia 1ozt coins. Vat free via trustworthy European dealer.
  4. Pre-owned (from the pre-owned silver section of the website) but all 2016 and in as new condition (could only see milkspotting on one coin). This is the second time I've ordered these type of coins from them (last time I got all 2013), this time they sent them in a free tube. You have to be quick though as deals like these are soon snapped up.
  5. Another order of cheap silver arrived from Atkinsons Bullion today, just £14.57 per oz delivered.
  6. Atkinsons pre-owned mixed years Austrian Philharmonic 1oz silver, at £14.65 each including p&p has to be some of the cheapest silver I ever bought.
  7. My items from the November Group Order arrived safely, many thanks Mr & Mrs BYB ☺️
  8. The Swiss 1/2, 1, 2 & 5 Franc coins pre 1968 (plus the 1969 5 Franc Coin) were 835 silver and the exact same design coins are still in everyday use today, albeit Cupro Nickel. I collect these along with some pre war French and German silver coins and pre 1947/1920 British coins. I try to buy nice condition coins but I find the 925 British coins as well as some of the 900 US coins are usually very worn or very expensive in good condition. All these coins are a smallish part of my silver stack, I don't really worry about premium on these coins, if they are in my budget I buy them. IF the price of silver ever skyrockets in my lifetime, the relatively small premium I have paid on these coins won't matter anyway as I probably wouldn't be selling them otherwise.
  9. This is what I got from Atkinsons Bullion when I ordered one of their "Bullion 100g Silver Bar" mystery deals. I was hoping for a minted bar but now that I have received this cast one I think its pretty cool and well worth the £60 inclusive price.
  10. Not all of these arrived today but would love to get my hands on more of these lovely Swiss and French Silver coins.
  11. Another charity shop find 1977 Sterling Proof Crown, this one in lovely complete condition, £10.
  12. I'm a big Spaghetti Western fan, seen well over 300 of them so far, Provvidenza (Providence) is a character actor Tomas Milian plays in a couple of Italian comedy westerns. I used the name on a Spaghetti Western Forum a while back and decided to keep it on here because it also seemed kind of appropriate. The avatar is from one of those 1960's educational films, telling children not to stick knives into electric sockets, nedless to say we have all done things we were advised not to.
  13. A 1930 French 10 Franc coin, hope to pick up more of these very attractive Art Deco design 10 and 20 Franc pre-war 680 silver coins. ☺️
  14. I'd buy 1oz Silver Britannias, maybe a monster box full? Then a tube of 25 Full Gold Sovereigns? You would pretty much be sorted then. The only thing is, the price of precious metals do fluctuate, so think whether you want to go all in now or build up to that amount gradually. All depends on whether you think precious metals are going to go up or down in price? I personally think they will be coming down before we see any significant price hikes, this is why I am accumulating gradually over the next few years.
