    The best place is tossed haphazardly into a room in a dungeon with traps, and a mean monster guarding it.

    This question seems to come up every few weeks.  There are tons of you tube videos on the subject and here is the latest thread on this forum.  
     
    I use air-tite brand capsules with tubes and an airtight ammo box.  Stuff I like to look at go in a display box (in capsules).  I do use silica packs and anti-tarnish strips.  Can't hurt right!

    The best and cheapest way I've found is to keep them in the coin flips they came in, and then put them in a Ziploc snack bag. These bags are smaller than sandwich bags, therefore they hold less air (and you should flatten out the air in the bags before sealing them). This is the product I'm talking about:
    https://ziploc.com/en/products/bags/sandwich-and-snack/snack-bags
    https://www.target.com/p/ziploc-snack-bags/-/A-15357042
    (In the US, Target has the best price per bag that I found in a cursory search: 3 cents)
    When you say the "small plastic bags you get them in", do you literally means bags, or flips? Flips are somewhat more rigid than bags, and critically, are open on one end and unsealable. In the US, I've only ever received flips in my orders, for both bars and coins.  If yours are resealable plastic bags, then you might already be set, though I'd still consider double-bagging them with Ziplocs or similar.
    As BYB said, dessicant can't hurt, but I'm not sure it's necessary. I've thrown in the dessicant packs I've received in other random shipments, like clothing, or the ones that come in medicine bottles. I never buy any.
    Milk spotting is poorly understood, and the Royal Canadian Mint has not divulged its solution to the problem. The most common threat to your silver will be sulfur-based tarnish from exposure to open air.

    Hi there,
    I'm a brand new member on this forum as I was compelled to join out of a guilty conscience. I will explain.
    During my lunch break I was googling the Scottsdale Mint (as they have nice looking Stacker bars) and I wanted to know if anyone knows the shipping costs to Europe. I inadvertently stumbled onto this thread and saw the discount code, which I promptly wrote down for future usage.
    I fully intend to use the code for my new purchase but I was compelled to become an member of the forum (which I wanted to do anyway at some point in the forum) in order to say hello from the mainland and thank you to @BackyardBullion for his continued service, both on Youtube as well as for these large group orders.
    Cheers

    I've been looking at that coin for a while now and I've decided to no buy it after seeing a video from Southside Stacker
    I do like the design and theme but he does make a point that the details aren't quite there, which is a real pity. Then again, I am basing myself solely on his video.
     
    Most important part is always: if you like and think the price is good, then go for it.
