  1. So I bought a lovely gold buffalo from a fellow silver forum member here quite some time ago now and I've always been baffled by the grading NGC has given this. They've graded this as PF 64 which is defined as: "Average or better strike with several obvious marks or hairlines and other miniscule imperfections." Can anyone see any obvious marks or harlines with this because it looks flawless to me. I can't help but think the grader was just having a bad day 😅 One day I will get this regraded I think.
  2. Funds aren't my style. I just opt for large cap stocks in companies I feel like I understand. It's the same sort of reason why I opt for physical bullion instead of gold & silver ETFs. I want the control and don't feel like paying a fund manager an annual fee for something that's relatively straight forward and I can do myself. If you're looking for things to buy think about all the companies your money ends up going to and have them start paying you. Of course there are valuations to bear in mind but this should just be a way to get started.
  3. Close up here, what's interesting is the face looks different to the graphic version. There are no sun rays behind the queen.
  4. If GSBE are charging £21.65 for the 2020 bars maybe I can sell my tube of 2018's for £30 an ounce 😅 What are these guys trying on.
  5. To me it sounds like gold would be a better option here. Gold has quickly recovered whereas silver is back where it was over a year ago.
  6. It's available for pre-order on goldsilver.be now: https://goldsilver.be/en/1-oz-30-gr/3224-perth-mint-1-oz-silver-rectangle-dragon-1-bar-2020.html As much as I like the 2020 verion I haven't bought because dealers are pricing these things as if the silver spot price didn't plummet. It's £17.42 and if you buy a tube including delivery it comes down to £18.70 per oz. Give it a month or two and it's only a matter of time before they will need to get more realistic with their prices.
  7. Silver price has fallen a lot but seller prices of physical silver seem to be staying at >£16 an ounce as if nothings changed. What are peoples theory on this? is it dealers being reluctant to readjust their prices or is it just a delayed process until they all replenish their stock?
  8. So has anyone found this available to buy online at all that can deliver to the UK? With the price of silver basically hitting rock bottom, I'm not sure it even matters that I'd need to pay 20% VAT on some sites 😅
  9. Finally! I've been waiting for it to come out. I almost thought they gave up on the series. They should add reeded edges.
  10. Today I received my 1904 $20 liberty head double eagle from Atkinson's. Here's my collection of pre-1933 US gold and silver.
  11. I'm still not seeing anything from the Perth mint regarding a new 2020 version 😢
  12. Recent deliveries: - gold 1900 $5 liberty head - 5oz Scottsdale silver bar - 2x 10oz silver engelhard bars 1p added for size comparison on the liberty head.
  13. I always thought bullion bars looked neat. I'm an investor and love to diversify but knew my weak point was the lack of PM's in my portfolio so early this year I took a look at the platinum, gold and silver prices and they looked a bit beat up to me so I figured it's time I start looking into how to buy the physical stuff as I"ve never been a fan of ETF's. My first silver was a 3x 1kg silver Umicore bars. They were lovely to hold and Arshimo gave me the original box it came in from Umicore so of course the empty space in it left me with a void that needed to be filled. Now I have full box that's overflowing 😄 At that time I would have considered myself just a stacker but that assumes I'd buy any silver assuming it's at a good price. For me that's not true, I only buy desirable brands. At that point you could have considered me a collector of sorts but I think the collector in me became more evident when I started buying pre 1933 US gold which I think is really neat. You can tell a lot of thought has been put into those designs and I like the fact that people used it as money back then.
  14. Yep surprisingly quick, thanks @Spanishsilver.
