    QStack got a reaction from mr-dead in All gone Pete Tong   
    So Theresa May's government is in a bit of turmoil.
    Shoddy Brexit deal achieved.
    3 ministers resigned so far with more likley to join them.
    The pound is tanking (glad @BackyardBullion finished his group order a week early  )
    Surely she has to go?
    Does this make a no deal Brexit more likley?

    Welcome to the NOVEMBER 2018 Group Order!
    This group order will be from BOTH http://goldsilver.be/en AND https://www.europeanmint.com/ (MORE INFO ABOUT THIS IN THIS THREAD) 
    PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY AS IT CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT and JOINING THIS ORDER.
    Also, if you are interested in joining this order please "follow" this thread so as and when I have updates I can more easily share them. 
    Dates for this Group Order
    This group order will be open for 4 weekends, starting on 27th & 28th October 2018 and closing on Sunday 18th November 2018 @ 6pm UK time.
    New closing date: Sunday 11th November @ 6pm
    PLEASE NOTE WE WILL ONLY BE ACCEPTING ORDERS FROM http://goldsilver.be/en ON THE FIRST WEEKEND (27th & 28th October) 
    We will however be accepting orders from the European Mint at any time in these 4 weekends. 
    These dates WILL NOT be changed/extended and are fixed. I do however reserve the right to extend/end the order should an extenuating circumstance arrive - but this is unlikely to happen. 
    The delivery estimate for your orders is going to be week commencing 10th December 2018. This is an ESTIMATE only and may be subject to change. 
    Terms and conditions for joining the Group Order
    Joining this group order is at your own risk. Please make sure you read the following carefully because by joining the group order you are agreeing to the following.
    1) I (Backyard Bullion) cannot take financial responsibility for lost/damaged items that are part of this group order.
    2) Once payment has been received by Backyard Bullion all orders are final and cannot be refunded. 
    3) Orders are quoted based on live prices from the dealers website. If these prices change between quotation and payment additional funds will need to be sent (or refunded) where appropriate.
    4) You agree that I (Backyard Bullion) will act as an agent on your behalf to purchase items from the above mentioned dealers. 
    5) Backyard Bullion can only dispatch your order upon successful delivery from the appropriate dealer and only upon payment of a separate postage invoice - which is sent after the order has closed. 
    6) Any loss or damaged item claims will be initiated and managed by me (Backyard Bullion) and any payouts for claims can only be made upon the successful payout from said claim. Backyard Bullion cannot be held financially responsible for any unsuccessful claims.
    7) You are liable for any and all taxes that may be applied to your order for your home country of delivery. 
    😎 By joining the group order you agree unconditionally to all the above. 
    What is the group order all about?
    This group order is a way to combine shipping costs for buying silver from Europe. We pay drastically less for our silver because we essentially do not pay VAT. I organise these orders so that people can get cheap silver but also so that I can unbox a large quantity of silver for my YouTube channel. It helps grow my social media, my BYB brand and my reputation within the community.
    This month, we are going to be using two dealers https://www.europeanmint.com/ and http://goldsilver.be/en
    DUAL GROUP ORDER - WEEK 1 ONLY
    As I mentioned above we are doing a dual order - but ONLY IN THE FIRST WEEK.
    You can order via The European Mint in any of the 4 weekends, but only from Goldsilver.be IN THE FIRST WEEKEND (27th & 28th October).
    EUROPEAN MINT PRICE MATCH GUARANTEE - EXCLUSIVE TO SILVER FORUM GROUP ORDERS
    The EU Mint have offered to price match the following items with GS.be (assuming that they are not already cheaper!)
    Any coins from the Queen's Beast Series (bullion), 10 oz & 2 oz - including the 10 oz dragon & 2 oz bull Oriental Border Britannias Perth Mint Dragon Bars Regular bullion coins from 2018, Britannias, Maples, Philharmonicas, kangaroos, koalas, pandas, kookaburras and eagles. Back dated years is on a case by case basis.  The new Royal Mint two dragon coin Other coins may be price matched upon request - but no guarantee.  Other items will have to be on a case by case basis. Some items cannot be price matched because of the volumes that The European Mint buys them in does not allow any room for movement in price. However for the list of coins above we are able to get the same unit price per coin. 
    How do you place an order?
    The way this works is simple. You will decide what you want by looking at https://goldsilver.be/en or https://www.europeanmint.com/ and send me a private message via the forum WITH HYPERLINKS PLEASE! to each item and how many you want. Please only message me via The Silver Forum only. 
    I will send you a screen dump of the basket and total on their website and then I will send you another screen dump from www.transferwise.com showing the conversion and total in £.
    You then send the funds directly to me via PayPal F&F or Banks transfer and as soon as I get the funds I will place the order. Your order is then locked in and confirmed, you cannot cancel after this stage. 
    WE WILL ONLY BE ORDERING IN STOCK ITEMS - ANYTHING ON PRE-ORDER WILL NOT BE ALLOWED.
    This is to avoid any delays after the order closes. 
    When to order and pay Backyard Bullion?
    I will only be placing orders on the weekends and any funds must be with me before 6pm. I will not be able to place orders mid week unless there are extenuating circumstances. This is simply because I am a busy person and organising and keeping track of these orders is difficult. Feel free to send me your shopping lists during the week but understand that I will not be able to lock it in until the weekend - this is just the way it has to be so be aware that prices may fluctuate in the run up to the weekend. I would rather do it like this than potentially forget or miss recording orders and making mistakes. 
    Deadline
    The order will close on Sunday 19th November 2018 @ 6pm UK time. You will need to have got funds to me by then if you would like to order anything. Should there be any delays in this it will mean the group order will be delayed and I will communicate any changes out to people via this thread. 
    New closing date: Sunday 11th November @ 6pm
    Shipping costs & Share of international postage. 
    The European Mint has offered a very generous shipping quote for this order - capped at 1% of the total value of the order, e.g. If you spend €500 your shipping is €5.
    GoldSilver.be's shipping is fixed at €18 and this will be split between all members that have ordered with GoldSilver.be as a % value of your order in relation to the entire order with GoldSilver.be - an example would be if your individual order is €500 and the total order with GoldSilver.be is €1000 you pay 50% of €18 (€9). 
    How do I get my coins from Backyard Bullion?
    Once the order has been delivered to me you will receive an "onwards postage invoice" which will include onwards postage and packaging from me to you. We will sort out the onwards postage and packaging once the order has been completed. Onwards shipping is at your choice and risk via Royal Mail. It is at this stage that we will sort out the share of international postage (if any applies). 
    Here is a quick guide as to what the onwards postage costs will be. 

    Please note that the maximum that you can send via Royal Mail Special delivery for a decent price is 2kg (about 55 oz). 
    If you would like to order more than this please get in touch to discuss shipping options.  
    ****Please also note that there is NO PRECIOUS METALS INSURANCE on any royal mail service other than Special Delivery****
    What happens in the event of an issue with delivery?
    As I said in the disclaimer at the top of this thread, I cannot be held financially responsible for the loss/damage of any items in this group order. The European Mint and GoldSilver.be's have insurance for their parcels but I have never had to put a claim in and I do not know how likely it might be that something is refunded should it go missing in transit. There is an intrinsic risk in ordering from any international company but I am confident that we will be able to resolve anything that might happen. Please bear this in mind before joining the order. 
    It is important to note the above terms and conditions and re-iterate that joining this order is at YOUR OWN RISK. I cannot be held responsible if items are lost/damaged when arriving from the European Mint or GoldSilver.be 
    Should there be any issues I will of course endeavour to work with the dealer to solve them, but I cannot guarantee a resolution. 
    Delivery from me to you is of a postage method of your choosing. As I have mentioned above there is no precious metals insurance for anything other than Royal Mail Special Delivery. In the event an order is missing or damaged any insurance claims will be made by me (Backyard Bullion) and refunds can only be paid upon successful completion and payout from Royal Mail. In the event that a claim by Royal Mail is denied I cannot be held financially responsible.
    Final Thoughts
    Is it worth it to join?
    Yes - buying silver from Europe is the single cheapest way of buying silver. Doing it as part of this group order is cheaper still. Some of their coins may be more expensive (the more collectable type coins) but certainly not by much. 
    Another reason to join the more you buy the cheaper it gets for everybody! 
    Additionally you will be helping support my YouTube channel because being able to unbox a large quantity of silver for my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/backyardbullion is always a fun and popular video and it helps grow my brand and business.
    Does Backyard Bullion charge for this service?
    I do not charge for you to join this group order - but we do ask you to consider contributing funds in the form of a "tip" or "Service charge". We ask for just £1 (but as many of you frequently do please feel free to donate whatever you feel appropriate! I will not be offended or angry if you choose not to pay the "tip" - but bear in mind that proceeds from the tip help feed Mrs BYB a slap up takeaway and keeping her interested in all the hard work of doing these group orders...
    For those who are interested, our takeaway of choice for this order will be a GIANT Chinese!
    Combining postage with other BYB items
    Of course, if you want to combine other orders with this group order we would be more than happy to offer discounts on our hand poured silver. 
    Have you got any questions?
    If you have any questions or would like any more information then please don't hesitate to ask here or via PM. 
    In the meantime - get me your shopping lists!

    QStack got a reaction from Goldmick in Newbie buying fractional gold....   
    I was in a similar position to you. Just getting into stacking, only gold at the moment but i wasn't sure to what to stack, 1oz coins 1/2 oz coins, 1/4 oz coins.
    Quite a few forum members suggest i take a look at sovereigns which is something i hadn't considered but after doing a bit of research and listening to other members on here I'm now stacking sovs. Thanks guys 
    The reason why i chose these over the 1 oz brits or the 1/4 oz brits -
    - you can pick them up with low premiums compared to 1/4 oz brits. Forum members suggested Hatton Garden Metals which do seem pretty good value.
    - can sell them further down the line for spot or close to spot.
    - recognised around the world (which i hadn't realised). If you look at US, Australian, Canadian, European gold websites they nearly all have Sovs for sale. Most don't have 1/4 oz brits. Again this suggests to me that selling all or part of your stack of sovs in the future should be pretty easy.
    - some cool old/rare numismatic sovs to collect

    Shrunk the stack down to a single Peli case by removing all the coin packaging and boxes which will be stored at home, will save a chunk of cash as I can now rent a much smaller box.

    https://www.usgovernmentspending.com/federal_deficit_percent_gdp
    Nobody seems to be paying any attention to this any more. It's a sign of how complacent the world has become over the last 5 years.
    However, the picture doesn't look pretty. It fact, it looks absolutely hideous.
    The Deficit is climbing, on track to hit £833bn this year and $1tn in 2019, and the stunning thing is that we are at the peak of the economic cycle. Compare back to just before the 2006 and 2000 economic peaks where the deficit had been falling and had almost reached <1% of GDP.   By contrast, the budget projections show that there is no scenario this time around where the deficit will reduce in any meaningful way before the next recession.
    IMO this guarantees that the next downturn will be completely ruinous. Don't believe the shills who say that a re-run of 2008 is not on the cards. The numbers show that nothing was fixed, everything was just papered over. We won't have a re-run of 2008... next time around it will be orders of magnitude worse.

    QStack reacted to Bullionaire in The future of Group Orders & Exclusive EU Mint discount code   
    Just ordered 11oz of silver coins using your voucher byb. Worked out at an average £14.53 an ounce (landed and all fees included) for: 5x 2018 britannias, 1x Bloody Krugerrand, 1x queens beast 2oz bull, 1x philharmonic random year, 1x maple random year and 1x predator wolf Excellent value. Thanks again for the voucher BYB / European mint
     
    I've wrote a little guide to help others with the ordering (as I found it a tad confusing cos I is a bit simple) using transferwise to pay:
    1 - Open accounts with both transferwise and European mint
    2 - On transferwise, go to https://transferwise.com/user/recipients/list and click 'add recipient'. Enter the European mints name, email address (I used their sales email address) and iban number which can be found here: https://www.europeanmint.com/terms/#payment
    3 - On transferwise still, add another recipient, which will be Capital logistics this time (Fun/helpful fact: You have to pay for (instruct) the courier seperately to paying for your order for the European mint to be able to legally sell the vat free silver to you (don't worry guys, it's tax avoidance, not tax evasion...)). The details for capital logistics are also found on: https://www.europeanmint.com/terms/#payment
    4 - Now the fun bit, Fill your boots/basket on the European mint website with cheap, cheap silver (be sure to add some Krugerrands 😛 ). Keep the currency in euros on the site
    5 - Go to your basket on the European mint site and fill in the shipping estimate section at the bottom. Click 'get quote'
    6 - Select insured standard delivery. Then click 'update total'. 
    7 - Enter BYB's magical code in the discount code section and press 'apply coupon' (p.s. you can't apply two codes as per my earlier question in the thread, I tried. It didn't work)
    8 - Press 'Proceed to checkout'
    9 - Fill in your billing and shipping info
    10 - Keep your shipping method as the top option. It will still say the full shipping fee even though you've entered your discount code. This is OK. Breath. It's all going to be ok. You'll get your shiny soon little magpie...
    11 - Press place order. It'll take you to a screen that has the bank details that we've already put in transferwise above, plus your order numbers (one for silver, one for shipping). Take a note of these for the following steps. This page also tells you the exact price you have to pay each of the two companies (and takes into account your discount). 
    12 - Go back to the recipient area of transferwise. Click on the European mint and press 'send money'. Type the exact amount in euros that you owe the european mint into the euros section of the payment screen. This will auto update the gbp section above it. I selected fast and easy transfer in the drop down menu as I wanted to pay by card.
    13 - Press continue. When you get to the review section, make sure you put the European mint order number from step 11 into the 'reference for the European mint' box. Then progress through until it says you've been successful.
    14 - Repeat steps 12 and 13 but using the capital logistics recipient that we set up on transferwise and their information/payment amount/order number. Even though the voucher is 50% off the shipping, the full shipping fee plus tax still has to be paid to capital logistics. The discount was taken off the price that had to be paid to the European mint.
    15 - Sit back and wait for your silver to arrive. 
    16 - Cry when silver plummets in value tomorrow and you wish you'd hung on a bit longer...

    QStack got a reaction from kimchi in Hello from London   
    Hi Guys,
    Been toying with the idea of stacking for the last few years but financially wasn't the right time.
    Now on the other hand im in a better place and Im finally going to take the plunge and get in to stacking. Youtube has been a big help learning about stacking and ive watched a LOT of videos by guys who i think are members here, backyardbullion and shadowstack ???
    I think im going to start my stack buy just building a foundation of bullion coins (is the abbreviation for bullion BU??) both gold and silver.
    My monthly budget is going to be around £500. Im going to buy Silver one month and then save for two months and buy an ounce of gold. I think this is an ok idea, happy to be advised otherwise.
    Also am i better off buying my silver from european sites such as goldsilver.be than from the RM. Does it work out that much cheaper once you add in delivery and insurance?
    Anyway guys, thanks for your time. And im looking forward to being part of the community and getting ahead of the other 99.9999999%.
