What I am collecting / Investing in.

Found 1 result

  1. What made some of you start collecting or stacking, I used to see the odd program on the TV decades ago where they brought up precious metal bars from shipwrecks etc and thought to myself I would love one of those, then I think the thing that finally did it for me was when the first ever Bullionbypost adverts were shown on TV, they highlighted the fact that the ordinary man on the street could now buy something like this and there was sizes/weights for all pockets available, I then spent a while doing a lot of research, looking at prices and feedback for different dealers, read lots of articles on this forum, subscribed to channels like Backyardbullion, cybercurtaintwitcher, numistacker, silverslacker and others on youtube before making my first purchase about 4 months later. I stack only bars from CML, SAO and Albion, I love the simplicity of them and the fact they are poured, British, hallmarked. I prefer silver to gold (always have colourwise since a kid, I was the one who wanted the silver glitter to make a picture when everyone else wanted the gold ) luckily for me its much cheaper, I stack firstly because I like the shiney stuff (like Golum out of Lord of My Ring) and secondly in the hope that it will make a profit for me when I fully retire in the not too distant future. My first ever piece was a 100g Sheffield Assay Office bar
