  1. A few recent threads have mentioned low stocks on various dealer sites or difficulty in obtaining particular types of bars and coins. It stood out to me today when browsing goldsilver.be just how low their stocks are in certain things. See pics. Is this cyclical? The Brexit effect & everyone trying to buy VAT free silver before 31st? Or is it typical of people piling into precious metals after a price rise? Thoughts and opinions please! 😀
  2. I last bought from them 2 weeks ago and didn't get confirmation through either. After contacting politely them they sent it immediately. The order went through quite quickly despite an automated message saying they are experiencing unusually high volumes of orders (Brexit?) and it could be up to 8 days before orders are handled.
  3. Great, thanks. What would you suggest as the best way to find a valuation of everything?

    Stacking goals?

    Now that I have hit my initial goals (25oz, 100oz, 500oz silver + 2oz gold) I want to have 20% of my net worth in metals. My ISA silver and gold ETFs are there to trade the gold to silver ratio but most important to me is the goal: 3 Years Expenses in Physical Precious Metals. Why 3 years? Partly because I live a fairly frugal life and it is an achievable goal. Mostly because, if there is a major recession or depression, I do not want to have to touch any other investments while they are depressed and would sell metals instead if I had to. Having to sell stocks if there is a 50+% crash is not something I would enjoy doing. Ideally I will never have to sell a single oz of anything and will use it to rebalance my overall portfolio as and when the need arises. Metals are a great safety-blanket/hedge/investment (delete as you see fit) and I feel better having them and love the silver and gold chase. The most important goal I would recommend to anyone not in the stacking community is: START. Keep stacking and don't stop. Let the bug get you. Have real money, not currency. Keep going my stacking friends!
  5. A friend of mine recently inherited some numismatics and he asked my advice on value and how to sell them. For generic pre 1947 silver & gold I told him to sell on the Silver Forum. However, does anyone have advice or recommendations for selling more numismatic pieces like those pictured please? He could just go back to Coin Craft (where they were presumably purchased from however long ago) or stick them on eBay of course, but I suggested he wait to see what the wisdom of the Silver Forum offered. Thank you all
  6. Quite so. It isn't predicting mass migration. It is predicting mass extinction.
  7. Perhaps I am misinterpreting the 'data' presented in this forecast table, but according to this the US GDP will collapse by nearly 90%(!) in the next 6 years from $20tn to $2.4tn. Its population also will decline by 225 million people. It looks like most of the Western World is similarly in for a pretty rough ride too. Somehow, during this cataclysmic collapse, China, India and especially Russia are going to grow massively. Despite most of the Western World's population and GDP being destroyed. Either I am misunderstanding the table - which I hope is the case - or it is the most ridiculous example of fear mongering available.
  8. As to the $200 Billion question... some good insights here:
  9. Not a fan and won't be buying. The 2018 reverse is good though.
  10. Well, that is six months of excited waiting down the toilet. Will get it to complete set but here's to the next one!
  11. Food for thought: https://youtu.be/C4OlAT3jd3k
  12. Big fan of shields, particularly Victoria shields like this one, but also love the young Elizabeth head sovs.
  13. Are those numbers calculated to find the likely highest return according to your model or a certain expected percentage return? Thanks
