    Advice for a newbie on strategy

    It takes time to work through the addictive stage - I’ve been at it for a decade and haven’t quite got there yet. The good news is that after a decade I’ve been able to move from a silver 1 oz coin addiction to a gold 1/4 oz coin addiction. This has been funded by reducing my target silver/gold ratio from 100/1 to 50/1 by weight. Almost there now. You will change strategy every other week, it’s all fine.

    Silver is for collecting, Golds for stacking!

    I think you have number 2 wrong. People panic buy items that are rising steeply in price - fear of missing out inflates the bubble further - there was no shortage of buyers at the highs in 2011. The opposite in fact, there was quite the mania.

    How do you store your NGC / PCGS coins?

    It makes my OCD scream out loud. 😫How do you stack or store them in a perfectly symmetrical and uniform manner? Too much loose plastic flapping around, I could never settle. Each to their own though. 😀

    Why are the Queen’s Beasts so popular?

    I’m not certain that every coin associated with the queen is going to increase in value when she keels over. There are a lot of them.
  12. Can’t be worse than my punt on Rubicon Minerals 3 or 4 years ago. A £2,000 investment from my SIPP is now worth £21.78. 😂
