  1. Sure about the swap? I am not unwilling to that, if we can work something out
  2. I agree with you. My aim is to keep my PM for about 10-15 years, I am not looking for big profit, it's against Inflation as you say. Try to buy around 50 Oz Silver each month and hopefully some gold too but that al depends on my financial situation off course Just don't want pandas etc anymore but only Maples and Philharmoniker etc.
  3. Tnx. I try to have 2/3 silver and 1/3 gold
  4. That seems perfect to me and mostly the reason why I bought coins with a not so high premium, but then I realized I don't want to spend time on selling individual coins. So for me I think it is better to stick with Maples, but I still think that Panda's etc are absolute beautiful coins
  5. But that's is exactly my point, in that situation, who cares if there's a panda on the coin, or a Mammoth or a dragon? It all comes down at the weight of the silver. That's why I regret buying all these panda's etc.
  6. That question crossed my mind quite a few times. When nobody's trust fiat currency anymore, or when it's wordt nothing, I guess we get back in time and pay with silver. But cannot imagine it'll go that far. On the other hand, during financial crises, PM getting more worth. But off course, when there's a total collapse, we are all f*cked.
  7. Hi guys, Want to share my thoughts and maybe it might be helpful for starters in stacking who are - like me - maybe too enthousiast 😉 I started stacking only a few months ago. Basically for three reasons: . If I don't buy PM, I think I might spend all my money, but more important: . to have some extra money when I stop working and . have PM in case of financial crisis, collapse financial system I started to buy coins like Maple Leafs, Kangaroos and Philharmoniker. Seems great I think. But then I wanted some variations and coins which looked more beautiful. So I started buying Silver Eagles, Britannia's. Still ok. But then I wanted to buy real beautiful coins so I started to buy Queens Beasts, Red Back Spiders, Rectangular Dragons, Panda's, Giants of the Ice age etc... Absolutely beautiful coins but with higher premiums than the basic bullion coins. Stacking went really fast. Within three months got myself over 200 OZ of Silver (mostly Male Leafs) and more than 1 Oz of gold And then I started thinking. Thinking about the future and what I'm going to do when it's time to liquidate my stack. And realized that I just want to go to a bullion dealer and hand over one of more tubes with coins and get the cash. I don't think I am a guy who wants to sell individual coins on ebay or other marketplaces on the internet. Don't want to check if a coin has 'gained' some extra premiums, wait for a bid, negotiate, send the coins, waiting for money. I don't have the time for that and I think I don't like it. Just want to sell quick, preferably after silver prices has gone up. So I wanted to share this with mostly other starters here on the forum. Think about the future and how you want to get rid of the PM before you decide to buy all kind of coins. I first bought and then started thinking. And now I am sitting here with about 40 Oz of beautiful coins, most Panda's, while I'd rather had 2 tubes of Maple Leafs haha. Cause only now I realize that I am a stacker, not a collector (but I will not die because I bought 40 Oz of the 'wrong' coins) If anybody wants to buy some, let me know. But most of you guys are in the UK, so sending the coins to the UK might be too expensive. Selling them on ebay to Eurepeans won't make much sense I think cause the coins are not rare and most coins can still be bought at dealers. I guess I'll just have to wait till the silverprices are exploded and then sell them for spot to a dealer. Besides all this, one of the main reasons I buy silver if in case of a financial crisis, collapse of financial system. At that time, who cares whether there's a Panda on a coin, or a Mammoth. At that time I think it's al about the silver and all coins are worth spotprice.
  8. Already got 2 of the 1 Oz silver Mammoth coins, I think this will be the first series for me to complete so just bought 2 of the deer-coins. Mammoth coins were very pretty, hope the deer-coin will be on the same level
  9. Bought 2 Mammoth coins Silver 1 Oz yesterday. Beautiful coin. Goldsilver.be still got 167 in stock.
  10. Just wondering and like to read about your opinions. When you buy a full tube of silver (bullion)coins from a respectable dealer and the tube arrives fully sealed (by the Mint) , do you break the seal and check the coins to see if they are (milk)spotted or scratched or do you keep the tube sealed? I don't doubt the coins are genuine but on one hand I am curious how they look like and if they are scratched or spotted (just curious, I know spots have no consequences for the value of the bullion coin). On the other hand I can imagine the coins are even more liquidable when they're in a sealed tube. And as I understood the chances of the coins getting spots will be greater after the tube has been opened.
  11. Guess it's just toning. Found a guy on the internet who had exactly the same issue and send a message to the (respectable) dealer from whom he bought the coin. This was the reaction from the customer service: "The dot on your coin is called toning. Unless a coin is kept in a completely air tight environment, it will eventually tone or tarnish over time. Our Pandas are received directly from a mint distributor of the Chines pandas, so something mot likely occurred during the minting process for this coin to tone so quickly. If any moisture (workers sweating) or any other foreign substance landed on the coin, this may speed up the chemical reaction necessary for the toning/tarnishing to happen. We assure you that you received a genuine 2012 Silver Panda. If you would like it removed, there are solutions available that you could dip your coin in which would remove the toning within a few seconds. We do not sell this solution, but a quick google search will most likely tell you exactly what you need." Probably no news to you @StevenDS, don't know if you'll get back to GSBE, but I think I'll leave it at this and take the pain.
  12. Another coin has two very small damages and at these points the coin is shiny (bad pic sorry) Must say that I am a little disappointed eventhough it might not be a big deal. But I never bought coins with such a premium (OK, I still can buy food) and it is a bullion coin after all but it's just less fun to look at it. Waiting for some other panda's (2015-2020) which will arrive mid December but if they are damaged or spotted too I might only buy tubes of maples, ase's and Philharmonikers in the future 😁😁
  13. I bought 8 and received them last Monday. Thought they looked perfect but after reading your post I took a better look. Found one tiny spot. 😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢
  14. GSBE do sell them but they do not have them in stock at the moment
  15. Hi fellow stackers, Today I received my 1/10 Oz golden Maple Leaf. I ordered a normal plain coin but I received a 1999 coin with a 20 years privy. It is sealed but I guess it's a genuine one, came from GSBE. I do not care much about the privy, but is it more worth than the plain 2019 version? Or less? 😁
