    Paying VAT on silver...is it worth it?

    Welcome! You'll find almost everyone here on the Forum only too happy to help with advice and information when you're getting started. Keep an eye out for the next Group Order that Backyard Bullion very kindly organises on our behalf; by joining in with one of these, you can safely and securely order the cheapest silver in Europe, as well as benefitting from shared/reduced shipping costs.

    2019 Tower of London - Legend of the Ravens

    As quite a few others have commented, the raven design is quite pleasing. Not really wanting to spend that sort of money on a proof, and at the same time am not really interested in collecting cupro-nickel coins - so am wondering if Royal Mint Bullion will be bringing this series out later? Though it might prove to be as (un)popular as the Landmarks of Britain series??

    Platinum as an investment

    Just to throw my two ha'pence worth in, if I may...... I've been fascinated by the idea of having a small amount of platinum as part of my modest PM portfolio, but have so far held off from buying any; instead, I've been watching its price movements for almost 12 months now and have come to the conclusion that if you're after a rollercoaster investment ride then platinum will definitely fit the bill. I regret hugely not buying a 1oz platinum Britannia from GS.be back in the late summer when the price went as low as €722, only to see it move to above €800 in the space of just over a month a so shortly thereafter. As @flimsays, its price seems to be on the way down again now (€762 this afternoon) and so I'm keeping a very close eye on it. My thoughts are that I'll be buying if the price through GS.be drops below €740 for a 1oz Britannia. But hey! What do I know!

    EBAY 15% OFF

    Indeed there was! I managed to pick up a one tenth gold Britannia for £89.25 inc. P&P that day, and am keen to find another bargain when the next eBay discount code comes up

    Best Buy 2018

    A 1/10th ounce gold Britannia for £89.25 (inc. P&P!) as a result of one of eBay's 15% discount, plus a nice little bit of TopCashback and nearly 90 Nectar points. My other "high point" of 2018 was a half kilo Baird bar for £216 - again inc P&P, a special 4% TopCashback deal, and a shed load of Nectar points

    Black Friday Deals

    Just a hunch, but I think we might be about due another 10% (or maybe even 15%!) one day only discount promotion from eBay very soon. The last couple of these have been on a Friday, so keep 'em peeled (in true Shaw Taylor style!)

    **NOVEMBER** Group order

    The Silver Forum is great - really great, but the fact that so many of us are dog lovers speaks volumes As far as I am concerned, dog are excellent judges of character - and so I have an in-built mistrust of anyone who doesn't like dogs
