    woody65 reacted to KevinFlynn in This is about me   
    Greetings everyone,
    my name is Sebastian, I am from Germany and I am a casual stacker...
    I am in my mid 40s, an IT professional living in the middle of nowhere, with a wonderful fiancee living far far away.
    I first got interested in gold and silver investing around 2011, when I had regained some buying power after a long phase of bad luck which had cost me my life savings. Before that, my investment horizon had not gone beyond Sparbücher (savings accounts) and Bausparverträge (guaranteed mortgage savings accounts), though I vaguely remember signing for Infineon shares back then.
    After reviewing the standard investment offers of my bank I dove deeper into how to build a portfolio. Within the depths of the internet I came across a mixture of gold and silver investors, preppers, conspiracy theorists and alternate investors. I learned about the history of money, the modern post gold standard financial system and globalization, I read my way through a mixed library on system criticism and precious metal investing. I sorted all this through to fit my personal requirements and experiences and in the end decided to build the cornerstone of my portfolio out of gold. It would have been real estate, but my job takes me to different locations every couple of years.
    I decided on Wiener Philharmoniker as my standard investment coin, but soon my natural playfullness took over and I found myself amidst a mix of silver Pandas, Lunars, and everything that was hot at the time that I could get my hand on. I also developed a liking towards older trade coins, 20 Mark Deutsches Kaiserreich and 20 Franken Schweizer Vreneli specifically. I do like to touch my gold, and the latter are especially suited for that.
    Time flies and I liquidated most of my stack (a matter of mislead loyality and personal idiocy). I was able to rebuild around 2015, and am now ready to put a monthly stream of money towards precious metals again. What stayed with me are my trade coins, a stack part which I already reinforced. My favourite coin is the Vreneli (20 Franken) due to it's design (I am in love), it's size, affordability and easyness of trade. I am just deciding what products to split my precious metals investment sum on. I am having the feeling that the precious metal landscape has changed since 2011, that all the more special items have become very mainstream. But that may just be my personal perception.
    I am viewing gold as the mainstay of the security part of my portfolio. As far as I see it, Gold was, is and will always be the classic store for wealth. I of course have silver, but I list that within the speculative part of my portfolio (tagged preserving and speculative, to be precise). I may invest into some platinum as another speculative metal, given the current prices. Other than that I am trying to keep my portfolio balanced, containing enough liquid assets and different risk level stocks (fonds) invested in different parts of the world.
    So this is it about me, my past experiences, what I learned and what I am doing at the moment, where precious metals are concerned...
    Thanks for your time

    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.

    When I first started this journey I had no idea what to expect. 
    Just recently NGC have been noticing more and more what I have been doing and they invited me to become an Authorised NGC Dealer subject to application and 4 references from recognised coin dealers that they trust.
    I am happy to say that I took up the challenge and invitation and I have just been awarded the status of NGC Authorised Dealer. I am not sure that i am really a dealer and I hope that you guys wont think less of me by becoming more official. 

    I want to thank all of you who have been alongside on this interesting journey. Thank you all for your support and encouragement and I hope I will find ways to bring something innovative and exciting to UK coin collecting and stacking via this interesting association with NGC going forward.

    woody65 reacted to morezone in Has anyone ever bought from coin portfolio   
    Here's my take on it.  So far we only have one confirmed delivery to a member here.  There maybe others who have received since not everyone shares their buys and receipts.
    Since they have made at least one delivery but no one else has received anything yet, I can only assume that they sold their first in hand allocation but were promised a certain allocation with delivery dates of x,y,z.  Seems that additional stock wasn't received in time so hence the longer than expected delays.
    Not sure why you have been asked for a signature but with their sister company Westminster, I was recently asked to sign a form authorising them to carry out a credit check on myself.  I chose to ring up instead and give verbal authority.  According to them, since it was a large order but minor buying history they needed to 100% confirm my identity.  Fair enough.
    We should have all paid for the order by credit card.  Makes sense to do so since 1) there is no surcharge for paying this way and 2) Credit card offers consumer credit protection.  Worse case scenario we don't get any coins and they don't/can't/won't refund in which case we just contact our credit card companies and get our money back that way.  Depending on the situation, you have had to spend over £100 though but in a chargeback scenario, it will work for a single coin.
    I do believe that Westminster and possibly Coin Portfolio through Westminster will get one of the the largest allocations from the SA Mint.  Our usual dealers cater for serious stackers/collectors and wealth preservationists whereas Westminster caters for the rest of the population who random items at sometimes highly inflated prices.  National newspaper/mags/mail promotions allows them to do this and they probably sell a fair number of items and make good profits.  I could be wrong.  I haven't seen there books.
    I've ordered and I'm just going to sit back and wait it out.  It if comes, great.  If not, and I can't get a refund then a quick call to the credit card company will get my money back.
