I am sorry to hear you had a bad experience with gold and I think you did the right thing by selling them all to a dealer without stressing yourself anymore than this, you weren't having fun with it, it wasn't for you.
But don't expect any sympathy from the members of this forum, because as far as I undesrtand everyone here is obsessed with gold and so upset that all those nice coins ended up with a big dealer, soon the same exact coins will be sold for a lot more than what you got paid for them and we are all going to have lion and griffin nightmares tonight 😆😫
I am new to gold stacking myself but unlike you I'm absolutely loving this journey, since I started buying gold I never thought that I made the wrong decision, I can't wait for the next opportunity to arrive to buy more gold and when I buy a piece of gold I am already having an eye on the next one.
if the time comes when I am desperate for cash then I will have to sell but other than that I don't see any reason to sell my gold or even silver.
economy crash, Brexit, uncertainty , PM price going up and down are not good enough reasons for me to sell, I guess I am just too attached to my gold 😂
I joined the forum before I bought anything and the amazing members of this forum helped me a lot, there are so many intelligent people here who will give you the best advice, you just need to ask, I learn a lot from this forum every single day.
anyways I wish you the best of luck with your next investment and I'm sure you have learnt a thing or two from this experience.
