    22K vs 24K

    If you're investing/collecting then 22k vs 24k shouldn't be a problem as they still have their marked weight in gold.

    Help needed. Is this a proof Canadian Silver Maple ?

    Your pictures look like this one so I'm sorry to tell you that it's a fake. https://www.fakebullion.com/index.php/component/k2/item/20-2013-canadian-silver-maple-1-ounce-silver-coin The only one like this I could find on ebay is the one that I think you might have up for sale, as the woodwork background looks the same! It might be worth taking it down just in case you get a strike.

    I would say it looks like a copy as I would expect the leaf to have more detail in the vines.
  4. The death of the Queen over Christmas leading to the delay/cancellation of Brexit, causing riots, also a collapse of government with the hard left taking control and causing a financial meltdown.

    Show your stack.

    They marketed them as "£20 for £20". I got them as gifts a while back.

    Slow but steady stack here. Maybe 8ish years of buying on and off. I sold lots of my generics a few years back and have been replacing them over the past year with Brits. Edit to add: This is just my silver, the other stuff is harder to dig out atm.

    You'll be a man, my son

    Sovs. QB's are popular now but may not be in 18 years.

    Buying trips

    For coins/bullion it's cheaper here but for jewellery it's often better quality and cheaper abroad. Not too sure about customs though.

    Asset Allocation

    This is where I've probably made a mistake. 60% cash 40% PM's

    Trump 2020 1 oz silver coin ???

    I might get one for work's secret Santa just for a laugh! 🤣
  11. A few months ago I was speaking to someone who was buying gold for the first time and he was shocked when I mentioned that the price also goes down. Gold was a great investment pre 2008, now I see it as more of a preservation of wealth with the added risk that it could go either way. Silver is more risky as you've got to factor in VAT and bigger premiums. I bought post 2008 so I haven't seen any growth yet on my gold investments overall, but hoping it works out in the long term. I sold some of my silver to raise some emergency funds a few years back and I made a loss on that. I've slowly been buying more silver to replace it and am back up to my target, but if I'm honest (in my individual case) I should've stuck with gold. I do like looking at my silver though! 😀

    Best Looking Coin

    For silver it's the old style 1oz Mexican Peso. It's nice and chunky like pirate treasure! For gold it's the buffalo.

    Gold Brits vs Gold Sovs

    I took mine out the mints wrapper and into a capsule. That way it's easier for me to fit in my hiding spot without getting squished.

    Getting drunk in New Zealand

    I bought this off ebay after a few. £50 😮 Not that much interest when coming to sell it, best offer I got was £5 at a coin fair so I decided to keep it.

    Tracking your stock

    I use Excel for my gold. Its got columns for coin type/gold weight/cost.Then at the bottom it tots up the total amount spent, amount of gold in oz and the average cost per oz. I did it years ago and had to watch a youtube video to use the correct formula to make it do the right thing.
