What I am collecting / Investing in.

  1. Good Afternoon All! My name is James and I am from the UK, just outside of London (Moving into London in the next few months!) - I am a Watch Dealer and have been dealing for over a year now and work in the Jewellery & Watch Industry as my day time job. So I am quite used to the collecting mindset, assessing value of items and watching how the market plays and reacts to things. But my reason for starting with Silver is completely different to my buying and selling of watches and even my collecting of watches. For the past 2 years I've been doing my best to create some long term investments and have failed miserably, for short term investments and playing the speculation game I am already doing that with the watches. But for long term there aren't many watches I would want sitting in the safe for 20+ years so I can take out and sell, many factors for that beyond just value, service the watch in that time period and many other factors come to mind. So I've tried multiple different things, like just letting money sit in an account which is the worst for multiple factors, plus if the cash is there I like to spend it lol. So I started doing some research about 2 weeks ago and came across Silver & Gold Bullion, it made immediate sense to me and I found myself looking at how the market has changed for both and also Palladium and Platinum etc... Being in the Jewellery industry I already was aware of the value in precious metals and also knew about Bullion, but never looked into it as a form of investment for myself. So about a week of reading and watching videos went by and I decided I would begin very small! I am not rich, heck I'm 20 and investing the majority of my money back into stock for my business so I am left with very little at the end of each month. So for me starting with Silver made the most sense and buying coins, when I read they are free from Capital Gains TAX I was immediately going to stick to coins lol. I purchased only 2 coins to begin with from, a 1oz 2018 Silver Britannia and a 1oz 2018 Silver Maple, I plan on buying 5 Silver Coins in one go next and I am currently looking all around on where is the best place to do so and how to get the best value, hence why I have made this account and plan to search these forums! (If you love talking Silver and would like to save me some time by either pointing me in the right direction or would like to talk me through it please do so!) My plan is to invest in Silver 1oz Coins until I have enough to sell them all and replace them with a 1oz Gold Coin, from what I can see Gold is definitely king and for the LONG term makes the most sense. Would love to know what you think of this plan? Thank you all very much for your time and reading! Look forward to meeting some of you and I have no doubt I'll probably meet some of you in London at some point during this long journey of buying Silver & Gold! Kind Regards, James
  2. Thought I would start a topic of items made from precious metals that are works of art, I am not going to concentrate on the price nor what they are worth but the work that has gone into them either in skill or their uniqueness, I will continue adding to this post as I discover things that leave me in awe while surfing the net and invite the members of this forum to, too, dont worry what others might think, put stuff on here that matters to you, it does not even have to be something you would want to own, but just like it, I have many links to stuff I really like but will not flood this topic straight away. I will start things off with this, I think they are gorgeous, I wouldnt like to carry one in my pocket though as they are legal tender, I think one of those antlers might mash one of my lovespuds There is others in this set, a wolf and a ram, I think the one above looks the best though, maybe as it does not look to reflective.|productpage|youmayalsolike|10_oz_Pure_Silver_Gold-Plated_Coin_-_Sculpture_of_Majestic_Canadian_Animals_Bighorn_Sheep_-_Mintage_1200_2017&
  3. Will the departure of Boris Johnson and David Davis, spark a increase in bullion? Will it impact Brexit? See the file I just took a picture of
  4. When I was doing a little research into where the majority of the worlds silver was mined I thought to myself, What if silver was only mined in rich, well developed countries ?, Do you think the price would be far higher than it is now ?, A lot of silver at the moment is mined in most countries that can employ a very low paid workforce, what if it wasnt, would this make a difference to the price by much, would it be much closer to gold do you think ? (if gold was still mined in its current locations).
  5. Here is the first video in a series where I talk about making money from trash and turing it into Silver!
  6. I am at the point of replacing my electric furnace for smelting copper, silver , gold, and others metals. Question. I had a 1 kilo chineese made which was fine. I over did it and have killed the 2 year old girl. So I am thinking as I want to make my own art and i am in the process of registering with the Edinburgh Assay Office to sell some new bullion. Do I buy a 2 kilo or 3 or 4? What makes do you have? Please let me know.
  7. I recently received the first 2 coins in the EC8 series. I will be collecting the whole series. Is anyone else out there picking them up as well?
  8. I just bought 2>1+0-6m++++++++++++&utm_content=185%2f426R%2f4+NHS+DateStamp+Silver+10p&utm_term=426r&sn=4&ewai=jDUoJr7d1nw1
  9. Very interesting link to 101 uses for silver in everyday life, hopefully making it more sought after as time goes on. And missing from this list is this monster use, up to 16kg's of silver used in one Tomahawk cruise missile, we need a long war with the US firing a load of these.
  10. It would be interesting to find out what the total weight in kgs (or even tons ) all the members silver put together would weigh, I know it would only work for participating members and members who actually see this and want to participate, I will start the tally for a laugh, I have 1850 grams of 999 silver
  11. Each month we select some of the treasures that we have found in our strongrooms. Some of these items are limited - hope that you enjoy looking at them as much as we do. We also have an offer on the 1918 George V Bombay Mint Sovereign in a VF grade - £100 off until the end of the month!
  12. I hope you enjoy the latest edition to my collection

  14. Hi Everyone, I bought this teapot at a car boot sale but i cannot make out whether it is silver or silver plate. it does not seem to have any marks which suggest it is silver, but also it does not have any marks that suggests it is silver plated, it does have some marks on the base, but i have been unable to figure them out. - -I am no expert, so would really appreciate any feedback and opinions. I attach two photographs. Thanks, Moby.

    unknown silver object

    I am probably in the wrong forum, but I am so confused at this point I decided to post anyway. Maybe someone can redirect me if needed! I am trying to determine the age, origin, and use of this little handled dish. If you can help, I would really appreciate it!
