    I have a really large vibranium round on order, which comes with a neat-looking capsule of this "serum" stuff that they said was part of the package. It was a bit more than I wanted to spend this pay period but Apmex was having one of their vault deals.

    I mean, if you like a metal for its scarcity I suggest stacking Francium... although it's also highly radioactive, which might be an issue...

    Just sorting through some coins, these are some of the reasons I like silver.  Maria Theresa is a mass produced bullion con but still lovely, Morgan's nice and I may start collecting them, the hunting Thaler is a repro unfortunately, the real ones are a bit out of my price range but I'm not complaining at £7.

    I could not disagree more re the platinum comment. For me platinum is a dirty looking slightly blue version of silver. It is in no way attractive to me.
    Im mostly a silver stacker but have some gold and its a toss up for me between the two in terms of looks. For example, I think the QBs in silver look boss, gold ones are just meh to me. But philharmonics look only ok in silver but look amazing in gold.

    I do like the look of copper, especially with a matt finish. I just find gold captivating to look at. Maybe it's partly  knowing how expensive it is that does it

    Pure copper has a great look to it, which rivals gold.

    Silver has the highest reflectivity of all the metals, it is objectively and measurably the shiniest.
    Gold is one of the very very few metals to have an emission in the visible spectrum (hence it's colour)

    Silver is the metal of men, gold is the metal of kings.
    Platinum / Palladium are the metals of cars. 😄

    Each to their own. BTW I'll be happy to send you a 2oz silver QB for any 1oz platinum QB you might have.
    Personally I'm still waiting for a vibranium or unobtainium 1oz coin. 😎

    I know which of my bars I prefer and feels better in the hand, and its not the one on the right

    At spot you could have 15 bars + change of the one on the right for the price of the gold bar.  Highlights how value dense gold is.

    I do like the look of sliver,  but you can't beat pure gold for aesthetic appearance. I will own a 1oz gold coin someday!

    In which way? I do like the way platinum flows when struck on a larger magnification level but overall it seems greyer and darker. 
    Also on coins the lustre of circulation issue gold coins is more appealing than silver. 
    But as cast bars, silver seems to have an edge. Although i still have to see a BYB gold ripple bar to compare.

    I feel the same. Silver just has something about it that makes it look good and feel good in the hand.

    At the risk of getting thrown off the silver forum as a heretic I have to say I personally don't find silver that visually appealing. Combined with the fact that it's valued so low by weight and suffers from huge margins I have trouble getting too excited by silver coins. 😕
    A gold coin on the other hand looks pretty darn impressive. Platinum too has an edge over silver in terms of appearance for me.

    Happy Sunday! Today I thought we could talk about the up and down trends of Silver. There seems to be annual patterns and those ebb and flow like the tide. Silver goes up and down almost on schedule and anyone that has been stacking for a while should already know it,but for those that have not had a chance look at the history you may be costing yourself some money.
    This is a very easy to read article and shows the trends in an easy to understand format.
    https://goldsilver.com/blog/the-best-time-to-buy-gold-and-silver-in-2018-is/
    Here are some highlights from this article, they calculated the average gain and loss using every day of the year starting in 1975 (when it was once again legal to buy gold in the US) and put it in this easy to read chart.



     
    Now you can see that we are in the best season of the year! Lowest silver prices all year, so instead of worrying about a “crash” or the prices
    Tanking” instead stock up,Mid June is black friday and Cyber Monday for the silver market. This works well as early January is the best month for buying Gold so you can add the most bang for your buck every 6 months. Something to keep in mind when you are planning your stacking market!
    Thanks for Reading and Happy Stacking!

    The Proof set was opened, as most are you buy. So the coins are not frosted.
    The Mint set P & D are not opened. I will leave that way for now. It would look like this inside => https://i.imgur.com/cLHidlQ.jpg

    My lofty goal would be to sell half my stack when the price doubles from where i bought (average) so that the other half is basically "free" and i do use quotes on that hahaha... would be cool to have a bunch of silver that cost me basically nothing
