    Any news on Canadian Predator Series?

    Some of you who have watched any of my youtube videos might know that the canadian predator series is one of my favourite cheap semi-numi series. The cougar is an awesome looking piece, and the lynx is pretty sweet too. My understanding was that there were to be four coins in the series. It hasn't escaped my attention however that the next coin in the series has yet to be announced, despite the last coin in the series being revealed over a year ago. I would have expected to have heard something about it by now, at least which animal would feature, if not the exact design. One or two websites seem to think the next coin will be the grizzly bear, but I cant tell if its the real deal or not... In any case, I cant find anyone selling these coins. Has anyone come across anything which suggests whats next for this series?

    Is this coin fake?

    Hi, I found this 1800 u.s coin from my grandmother's safe. However there is one problem. As soon as I saw this coin it looked fake. I don't know much about it and I would like your opinions on it. Thanks. (I can only upload one picture of coin to see the other check my other post)
  4. This is something my mum has had for decades and I am not sure where it originally comes from but suspect from one of her aunts.Anyone able to help me work out where it is from and likely age? She also has a matching section which was used as a pendant for a necklace. Sorry photos not finest! Alos just to confirm nothing on back of any of the pieces.
  5. I recently bought the Isle of Man proof and reverse proof set. Very nice coins, really like the reverse proof design, and supposedly as a set only 500 were minted. Anyone else like these or collect them? It seems there is a "Noble" minted annually, but I am having trouble finding out if there are silver ones minted annually or just platinum. I also can't seem to find ones found minted every year, but on off years. Take a look at some lovely photos below!
  6. New coin domed of Australia
  7. I was just wondering if anyone knew when the The Queen's Beasts - The Unicorn of Scotland 10 oz Coin would be coing out, not the proof one as I already know thats out. Thanks
  8. I was shocked to come back from dinner to find that most precious metals have suffered a massive drop in spot price Should I buy? I think I will but Im not sure if price will ever go up again. What could have caused the crash though? What should the community do? I searched more into it and most countries have already shut down their bullion and bank refineries, China, India, UK, Russia have already completely shut down their banks, will the price recover?

    Old or Gold?

    This is a general comment about collecting coins and gold coins. I've noticed since being a collector that there seems to be two directions numismatists go when they "mature" in their collecting - gold or old. I realize there are exceptions to this, and I know some people collect paper currency, precious metals for stacking and not coins, and of course exonumia, but I'm fairly confident I can clump most serious collectors of coins into either of those categories. For instance... Some of the most popular coins collected amongst serious numismatists in the UK are the sovereigns (Gold) and crowns (Old). Some of the most popular coins collected in the US are Morgan Silver Dollars (Old) and the Eagle, Double Eagle, and Indian head dollar coins (Gold). I'm sure other countries have similar patterns. As a younger collector my question to the Silver Forum Community is - is it worth it to even bother with modern silver, semi-numismatics, limited mintages, non-Precious Metal coins, etc. if eventually all great collections contain very old coins or (very?) gold coins? I appreciate all comments and criticism!
  10. What do most people think is the best investment when exchanging fiat currency into precious metals?Notice i do not use the word buy as all we are doing is exchanging one form of money into another that hopefully will increase in value over time rather than decrease with inflation. My personal opinion is silver coins starting with the cheaper end such as Eagles,Britannias and Maples before moving on to the Lunar coins and Krugerrands .Once you have stocks of these i would suggest looking at M.S.70 limited edition coins as longer term investments. I much prefer coins to bars because of the collector value and silver to gold because of the cheapness of silver at the moment when you consider the historical price ratio.Also one has to consider when purchasing bars they have to be bought at near spot price as possible and with the current manipulation of spot by governments and banks there is no possibility of short term gains.

    New Coin Lover From Lithuania

    Hello, my name is Roman, I heard about this forum from Backyard Bullion channel on YouTube, and decided to join. Since childhood I am collecting coins, and also see them as long term investment and saving. First I was collecting different coins, but now I decided on what to concentrate. I enjoy coins with high premium and lower mintages, like Britannia Proof, Beatrix Potter Proof, UK Lunars Proof, Queen's Beasts Proof, Australian Lunars: both BU and Proof. Also love China Panda and some other popular coins. I collect only silver coins (and few gold), and if it's old coins, then I collect bigger denomination coins (no cents, pennies, or similar). From experience I decided, that I want to have less coins, but those, that I love and treasure, that were harder to get and have bigger value. And of course having MS70 gives such a warm and complete feeling :-D Some of my coins:

  13.

  14. Hey everyone! I was wondering if we could start a thread where we share some of the best youtube videos we have found about gold and silver money, rather than just videos about your personal coin collections (although those are cool too!) For example, here are some great ones that I have found. I hope you will all share some of your favorites as well (This is episode one of what I think is very interesting and informative series) (this one is made by a company that I have bought some precious metals from - they've been really great to work with )
  15. I'm pretty new here and loving the forum (yet to see any negativity at all) I think a pod cast would be a great addition to the forum A live platform for news debate and all things silver and gold Guest could feature with all manor of subjects up for discussion, references to YouTube channels, any shows or exhibitions (like a calendar feature) advice on stacking and the like This may not be feasible or possible but it's just a suggestion from a keen newbie looking to soak up as much knowledge and information as possible Cheers for your interest SS
  16. Hello everyone - Welcome to the JANUARY 2018 Group Order from PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY AS IT CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT JOINING THIS ORDER. Also, if you are interested in joining this order please "follow" this thread so as and when I have updates I can more easily share them. Disclaimer Joining this group order is at your own risk. Please make sure you read the following carefully. I (Backyard Bullion) cannot take financial responsibility for lost/damaged items that are part of this order. By joining this group order you agree to this. What is the group order all about? This group order is a way to combine shipping costs for buying silver from Europe. We pay drastically less for our silver because we essentially do not pay VAT. I organise these orders so that people can get cheap silver but also so that I can unbox a large quantity of silver for my YouTube channel. It helps grow my social media, my BYB brand and my reputation within the community. You may have noticed that we have changed dealers. Previously we have used a Belgian dealer but as are actually cheaper on most items and have significantly better shipping and customer services it makes sense to use them. I have also personally visited their offices and met the manager. I have very high confidence in their ability to do business with the forum members as part of these group orders. If you would like to see the videos where I went to Estonia to meet them then please check out the following VLOG and interview: How will the order work? The way this works is simple. You will decide what you want by looking at their website and send me a shopping list of what you want. I will send you a screen dump of the basket and total on their website and then I will send you another screen dump from showing the conversion and total in £. You then send this via PayPal F&F or Banks transfer and as soon as I get the funds I will pull the trigger with When to order and pay Backyard Bullion? I will only be placing orders on the weekend. I will not be able to place orders mid week unless there are extenuating circumstances. This is simply because I am a busy person and organising and keeping track of these orders is difficult. Feel free to send me your shopping lists during the week but understand that I will not be able to lock it in until the weekend - this is just the way it has to be so be aware that prices may fluctuate in the run up to the weekend. I would rather do it like this than potentially forget or miss recording orders and making mistakes. Deadlines & Timelines for this order The order will close on Sunday 21st January @ 8pm UK Time You will need to have got funds to me by then if you would like to order anything. I estimate that I will receive the order by no later than 28th January meaning I can get things posted out to you in the week commencing 29th January. Please note this is an estimate and may change. Shipping costs & Share of international postage. With our previous Belgian dealer, shipping was free if the order was more than €5,000. There was a reason for this - they used cheaper and less reliable shipping providers. European Mint uses the likes of FedEx/TNT/UPS etc. which will be more expensive but provides a much better quality of service and peace of mind. So there will be a share of shipping for people joining the order. Overall thought this will be offset but the cheaper base cost of the coins that the European Mint offer. Also, I have arranged an exclusive 20% off for shipping for this group order so I am confident this will be cheaper than any other dealers in Europe. Including the discount their weight/price thresholds are therefore as follows: Weight EU VAT Total under 500g € 16 € 3.20 € 19 500g - 1kg € 24 € 4.80 € 29 1kg - 2kg € 32 € 6.40 € 38 2kg - 5kg € 48 € 9.60 € 58 5kg - 10kg € 72 € 14.40 € 86 10kg - 20kg € 112 € 22.40 € 134 Individually we will all pay a % of the total shipping cost based on the value of your individual order. So if your total is £170 and the total value of the order is £5000 you would pay your % (3.4%) of the shipping - which for this size order would likely be €86. This would work out to be €2.92 - as you can see a very small amount in extra shipping. This total will be paid for after the order has closed. I will keep an eye on the shipping weight and if we are close to a certain threshold I might advise that some orders be shipped separately or held for future group orders. How do I get my coins from Backyard Bullion? You will have to pay for onwards postage and packaging from me to you. We will sort out the onwards postage and packaging once the order has been completed. Onwards shipping is at your choice and risk via Royal Mail. It is at this stage that we will sort out the share of international postage. Please note that the maximum that you can send via Royal Mail Special delivery for a decent price is 2kg (about 55 oz) . If you would like to order more than this please get in touch to discuss shipping options. Is it worth it to join? Yes - The European Mint is cheaper by quite some margin than the other bullion dealers. Some of their coins may be more expensive (the more collectable type coins) but certainly not by much. A prime example is with Britannias where The European Mint is about 70p cheaper per coin. Even with the additional costs of shipping it is still cheaper! Plus you get a much better quality of service and shipping provider. Another reason to join the more you buy the cheaper it gets for everybody! Does Backyard Bullion charge for this service? I do not charge for you to join this group order. But I do ask for an optional £1 "service charge" per person. If you would like to pay more as a "Tip" please feel free but I will not take offence if you don't pay anything at all in the form of a tip. What happens in the event of an issue with delivery from the European Mint? As I said in the disclaimer at the top of this thread, I cannot be held financially responsible for the loss/damage of any items in this group order. The European Mint has their own business insurance to cover the loss/damage of parcels and I will act as a point of contact for sorting this out - but as I said I cannot be held financially responsible for the loss of items. Have you got any questions? If you have any questions or would like any more information then please don't hesitate to ask here or via PM. If this was all too much to take in I will be making a video explaining this all in more detail which I will share here on Saturday so make sure you "follow" this thread and get that update when it is ready! In the meantime - get me your shopping lists! Backyard Bullion

    Hello all!

    Hello all, I'm starting this beautiful adventure on the best ship
  18. The pictures really don't do justice to the amount of detail on these 2oz medals, but they are very beautiful and I was excited to receive them today. Mintage of 200 on the Antiqued and supposedly 328 on the proof. I say supposedly because the mint and the COA say maximum mintage of 328 but mine is numbered in the 390's. Maybe they changed the mintage later, maybe they didn't number them starting at 1, but anyway, I'm still thrilled to have these. Any thoughts from you fine folks as to the mintage/COA discrepancy?
