    Where should I start?

    My plan is to stick with gold sovereigns for now. Might not be the most exciting thing to do but it seems the safest way to start. Thx for sharing your experience with silver. I'll make sure I follow your advice and stay well away from silver. 😱

    Thx Serendipity. I'll definitely check it out. As the saying goes, Knowledge is power.

    I agree. I've been learning quite a lot just by being on this forum. Wow! thanks ever so much Toshunya86. I too think that I should start with 1. The chances to make mistakes are far lower. All I have to do is to make sure I find them at a great price and I buy them from a reputable company. That in itself is challenging. As for 3, I can see the advantages of buying old coins, but at this stage it would be incredibly stupid of me to start buying them when my knowledge of coins is almost non-existent. Once again, thank you for all the info.

    Yeah, you bet I will. That worries me a lot. Yesterday Abyss shared this link: https://harringtonandbyrne.co.uk/2019-united-kingdom-gold-uncirculated-sovereign-3212.html £229 sounds like a great price the only issue is that everyone complains about this company. Atkinsons and Bullionbypost have a good reputation but it would cost me considerably more. Interesting. I'll make sure I google that too. thank you cornishfarmer

    Many thx for this silenceissilver. Will definitely google all of that. Didn't even know those things existed which shows how clueless I still am. I don't like them either. I'm not a risk taker so I won't even consider them. Buying high premium coins would also defeat the purpose as all I'm trying to get is some peace of mind. True. I already have a safe but I might need to get a sturdier one. Thanks darkchameleon
  6. Thank you guys! :)

    Cheers Dunmac. Yes, I changed my mind about that too. I will not be investing a lot of money all at once as I initially intended. I really don't want to regret it later. Same. I watch a lot of vids on youtube. Especially Numistacker's channel. Interesting. Need to check their prices. Thx Jamesd. I can't wait to start.

    This is another Gold post - Thanks so much for taking the time to reply Paul. That's a real eye-opener. Most of you seem to agree that there's lots of downsides to silver. I don't think I'm going to take the risk...for now at least. Will most probably follow your advice and go for Gold. Small gold coins in the early days might be the most prudent idea.

    😛 That's true - I don't want to be worrying about those things. I'll follow your advice and keep it simple. Thank you northeast I'm so looking forward to owning my first sovereigns. Good to know I'm not the only newbie here. But you know far more than I do. Yeah, I'm now absolutely convinced that's the way to go. Still need to do lots of research though. Some companies/dealers have really poor reviews on google. Thank you for the advice goldflinger.

    Thx Xander - bullion sovereigns seem to be a clear favourite. how do you guys know if the coins are real? Do I really have to buy one of these: https://www.thefisch.com/ordernow

    Where should I start?

    Thank you all for your replies so far. Helping hands - Lots of food for thought there. ilovesilverireallydo - that's really helpful. I will certainly take all that info into account. Hawkhybrid - yes, I'm more inclined to start with sovereigns. I was just not sure if I should go with bullion or semi-numismatic. Abyss - thx for the links and your list of coins to buy - wow! That’s awesome. The cheapest sovereigns I have come across so far. And 1k for all of that sounds like a good strategy. But then again, what do I know? 😛 Much appreciated!
  12. Hi everyone, I am new to this and still need to do a ton of research before I start to invest in gold coins. For now, it would help me a lot if some of you could point me in the right direction. I'd like to invest £3000/£4000 or so on gold or silver coins. I've been told that I should invest in both silver and gold, but I have also been told that silver is better for investment purposes. What do you guys think? Should I buy gold sovereigns? if so, should I buy new or old sovereigns? And is there a book or guide you would recommend so that I can learn faster? Youtube videos and online articles help but that's simply not enough. Thanks in advance.
  13. Thank you MickD.
  14. Hi, I decided to register as I don't know anyone who is into coin collecting/investing, and I also need to get a better understanding of this world before I start to buy coins. I didn't know what to call myself so I picked this pedantic name which means coins in Latin 🙄. - I know, I already regret it. Too late now. Anyway, just wanted to say hi. I am sure I will learn a lot from all of you! Cheers
