    Treasure Hunt, X marks the Spot

    Now that could be a huge load of fun - especially if we did actually strike lucky and then had to come up with a plan to get the loot home to the UK

    **NOVEMBER** Group order

    Will do! Just as soon as I have access to a secure Internet connection - weekends are an absolute b****er for me, as I am usually away from home 😉

    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

    Can I add a 1oz 2006 British Virgin Islands S10 .925 silver coin, please

    Bars vs Coins

    I can't explain why, but I'm with you about not being so keen on larger (eg 1 kilo) coins; the 10oz Queen's Beast series is about as big as I feel inclined to go - but a good-looking 1 kilo bar is definitely on my shopping list. I picked up a 500g Baird minted bar the other week with the 10% eBay discount and am very pleased with it; it's certainly whetted my appetite for the next rung up on the "silver bar ladder"

    Bars vs Coins

    I've always stuck to silver coins in the past, but am just starting to get into bars as: a) They're available in a wider range of weights than most silver coins b) They're VERY tactile

    Starting out

    By happy coincidence, that is EXACTLY what I started off with as my very first venture into PMs

    Starting out

    Hi and welcome You'll find pretty much everyone on the Forum is friendly, helpful and generous with their advice. I've only been stacking gold and silver since the start of this year and there are people therefore here who are much better qualified and more experienced than me, but if I may proffer just one small piece of advice - don't rush into buying anything right at the outset. Take your time, listen to what others here on the SF have to say, and have a good look around at the numerous bullion dealers (both here in the UK and abroad), peruse eBay (though do be careful of the fake stuff that sometimes crops up there), and generally do as much research into precious metals as your time permits. Actually, there is a second piece of advice that you might find handy - when you are ready, join in one of the Group Orders that a chap by the name of Backyard Bullion kindly organises for all of us here. There's another one coming up in the next week or so, though that might be a little too soon?

    Tokelau Equilibrium series

    A few weeks back I acquired a BU version of this coin from a friend of mine, and I am delighted with it - great detailing and an innovative design. I haven't seen the bullion grade version of it and so can't really comment, but was quite happy to pay the bit extra for the BU one.
  21. I've just made my first departure from gold and silver coins, and have purchased a few copper Maple rounds from BYB. what are peoples' thoughts on my choice, and I'd also be interested to hear your thoughts on what other copper coins/rounds I should be considering.....
  22. 3 months in and my copper rounds from BYB are still looking nice and shiny My feeling is that they are something nice/different to add to my collection of stuff, but as an investment copper is not really practicable as one would need a huge warehouse in which to stack sufficient quantities of the stuff so as to make it viable.
  23. Do please forgive me if this question has been asked previously, but I'd be interested to hear peoples' thoughts on the following: If for a moment we assume that any orders placed with GS.be and the European Mint after 29 March 2019 will see VAT at 20% being slapped on our packages when the arrive in the UK, would the same apply if I took a trip over to Belgium/Estonia/etc., and returned with a quantity of silver (or platinum) coins that were legal tender in this country with a face value of less than £10,000 (i.e. below the statutory amount that must be declared under the various money laundering laws)? If I stuck to UK legal tender coinage (i.e. I didn't bring in any silver or platinum from any other country), surely that is the equivalent of me bringing the same amount of money into this country in the form of £10, £20 and £50 pound notes - and I wouldn't be charged VAT on notes, would I! Living down here on the South Coast, it's not a huge distance to the Channel Tunnel or Dover Ferry Port in Kent, and the idea of a trip over to the Low Countries, a spot of sight-seeing, a suitably "long lunch" maybe and then drop by GoldSilver.be to collect some coins is quite appealing. If 4 people made the trip and we took advantage of any special offers/off-peak rates, then the tunnel/ferry and fuel costs could be divided up equally, it might still work out to our mutual advantage - maybe even do a "Group Order on Wheels (and yes, my vehicle does have a very good size boot!) Or would UK Customs want a little chat with us when we returned to Blighty?

    Today I Received.....

    The 500g Baird Silver Bullion Bar that I bought yesterday during the 10% discount on eBay. Paid for it at about 4.00PM and the postman delivered it before 11.00AM this morning - how's that for quick and efficient service!
  25. Fastnick

    Here we go again - eBay UK 10% off

    Has good feedback though, and there's buyer protection. If I hadn't bought something and used my 10% discount earlier, I'd be tempted.....
