    Hi guys!
    New to the forum and here is a little about myself.
    My name's Kev, I'm 32 years of age and work as a gas engineer. I'm from South Wales in the United kingdom. Have been a long time potential PM investor but have never taken the jump to buy until recently. Last October 2018 I took the plunge, rather foolishly as I'd done little research on the market. My first purchase was of just under 300 1oz silver britanias. A 1oz gold krugerrand and a 1oz gold queens beast (Welsh dragon). With uncertain times ahead here in the UK I've started to invest into PM as a potential safe guarding of moneys. I plan to add to the collection as frequently as possible and have definitely caught the silver stacking bug. Any help and advice on best places to buy, specific coins etc would be much appreciated. 😁👍

    Greetings, fellow forumites, just a short introduction of myself. 43 year old father of two sons from the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Just started stacking silver two months ago and was directed to this forum from a number of YouTube videos I watched recently. I’m looking forward to learning a lot from you fine people. My focus is not on collecting various issues or diverse coins, but rather to secure funds in precious metals for their weight values for the future. I hope to learn much from you. 
    V/r,
    Paul

    Hello all,
    Delighted to have landed here, via the YouTube channel and thanks for accepting me.
    I have recently retired and am trying to arrange my investments according to the uncertain current financial outlook. As I have young grandchildren, a means of providing something for their futures is high on the list of my priorities so I am currently leaning more to silver, rather than gold. 
    My knowledge of the bullion market is only what I have gleaned from the internet and much of that could be unreliable, so I look forward with interest to gaining some good grounding here.

    UPDATE TIME!
    The order is up to a staggering 675 oz's of silver!
    No gold or platinum yet though!
    That is a staggering €11,000 worth in the first day alone!

    Be very careful with the 1.25 and 1.5 oz Canadian Wildlife coins - most are listed as being in circulated condition, this means they probably have milk spots or scratches on them. Fine for raw bullion but if you're a collector you could be disappointed. I've decided against them for exactly that reason @mrbearuk @OllieClem

    I keep half of mine in an underground bunker. Its booby trapped and guarded 24/7 by a gang of angry knife-wielding dwarves from Bombay.
    The other half is packed as ballast in my luxury yacht, its dry docked but ready to flee at a moments notice.

    @Marko Some good news!  The ebay seller contacted me to say sorry for the confusion and that he's going to send me the BUnc versions at the price of the Bullion versions cos that's what was advertised. Very decent of him!  He did me an excellent deal on combined postage as well and also confirmed that they would be posted from Slovakia instead of Switzerland so no extra VAT when they arrive.  Happy days!!  Seeing as he's been so generous, here's his link: https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/wopaplus
    I'll post the photos in the 'Just Received' thread when they arrive and tag you in the post.
    Nice one!

    @EdNug fingers crossed that he has the BU versions, and I hope that he helps out with the paperwork.
    I haven’t dealt with this mint before, and when I ordered the full set today it led me to posting this topic. Luckily they are in the EU so no need for further paperwork.
    I have bought from many smaller mints overseas, and hope that this thread leads to other forum members posting their “obscure” finds on here. I have bought many coins and bars after seeing other members posts on the forum, £ wise not always a good thing 😫
    I will upload some other coins (that I already have), over the weekend, some a bit strange, but they caught my eye, and hopefully it gives out some ideas.
    I hope you manage to get sorted

    For those of you that have the time (and money) to collect obscure silver coins, I thought I would add a thread to show the coins out there that are not so well publicized. Great to see the coins that can slip under the radar.
    I will start it off with the Chronos Series 1oz BU silver coins

    Happy New Year to everyone! My name is Wen and I am living in London. I've been registered here for probably a month now, so hopefully it is not too late to introduce myself. I just recently discovered that there is a way we don't need to pay vat for silver! It is just like an eyes-wide-open! It is by chance I found this forum and feel it is very helpful and a friendly community. Hopefully I can make as much contribution to it and be friends with some of you.
    Good luck stacking everyone!

    EdNug got a reaction from Don626 in Gold silver ratio   
    Silver is currently being mined at the rate of approximately 8-10 ounces for every ounce of gold mined, yet gold is 82 times more expensive than silver. I think the average ratio (or it could be the natural ratio in a crisis) is around 54 times. That obviously means silver is very underpriced compared to gold atm so should have higher percentage gains over time if ratio averages are revisited.  If you traded between the two then now might be a good time to trade gold for silver. If the ratio went lower than average, lower than say 54, then it might be smart to trade silver for gold.
    If you're just stacking and not trading paper metal then an above average ratio should be interpreted as silver being more of a bargain than gold, but new averages and patterns are set all the time. In terms of when its definitely good to buy larger quantities, the difference between extraction costs and spot price is probably more relevant - right now miners are struggling because cost price and spot price are so close, that signifies a bargain if you're a buyer. But then, this has been the case for the last few years. They've both been trading close to cost price and had little ups and downs but nothing's really disturbed the current ratio.

    EdNug got a reaction from danmc82 in The Forum, Stacking and Gender Psychology   
    Dichotomies aside, I used to consider myself a sort of left-leaning anarcholibertarian, but then the left got drunk on identity politics and splintered into competing gangs of cultural neoMarxists with violent totalitarian tendencies - feminists vs LBGT vs vegans vs BLM vs antifa vs open borders vs environmentalists vs safe spacers vs globalists etc... And what has 'the right' turned into but an angry groundswell of nationalists, fascists, Zionists and xenophobes with militant tendencies. 
    10 years ago a Dr of International Relations told me identity politics was the new 'big way' of perceiving the world - a post postmodern perspective of sorts. Watching it develop has been mindbending, even when i knew it was coming. It has been very much by design. The masses pitted against each other and even themselves in every way imaginable. The left/right paradigm died with the Cold War. These days its just a case of whether you trust the suits in charge or think they're a lying bunch of corrupt Satanic freaks controlled by entrenched occult agendas. I think most of us agree about that these days but we've become so divided, embattled, dichotomised and confused nobody can do anything about it for sake of worrying about calling some disturbed snowflake by the wrong gender pronoun, or offending a Jew and getting labelled as a Hitler-loving anti-semite for the rest of their lives. And lets face it, if you're a stacker you're probably quite pessimistic about the future and expect to see some sort of global economic apocalypse ensue before the end of your days.
