  1. Hi, Wanted to get people's opinions on what is an acceptable condition/standard for a bullion coin? Was recently offered a coin, which after looking very closely at the pictures (taken from a bit of a distance) I noticed it had a distinct scratch on it and also had pit marks, the seller was asking for a high premium over spot (£335 for 1/4oz) on the coin and when I mentioned the condition, I got a sarcastic patronizing response about how it was bullion and that the condition is that of a bullion coin. Don't know what others think but for me that's unacceptable...or am I being persnickety? Cheers
  2. I thought this was soo funny, I made it short, but this could have easily been a long video
  3. Iv seen an add in the metro for £279.99 for a quarter ounce American eagle. What’s people thoughts on this? I thought the coin looks amazing! Couldn’t find them on many sites....?
  4. I first started with a few bars and now only purchase coins in gold and silver. I have put this poll up to see which is the most popular way to buy gold and silver. Thanks.
  5. This may have been done before, but i dont think a poll. Was just looking back over some old stuff and got to thinking about how i have been stacking 4 and half years now. I wonder if i will still be doing it in another 5? Maybe its become put of the routine to put that little bit of money to the side every pay day for buying some silver. Would be interesting just to know what type of mix up we have here on the forum, some people stacking for longer than me would have gone through the 2011 jump, others stacking for longer may have bought silver at under £4-5 spot!!!
  6. Ever think about selling your whole stack? I am not selling my stack, not even selling a single coin but if you were to sell your whole stack, what would you doing with the money? I was thinking about it in work the other day and since then spent a little time on google looking for options and none are appealing to me at all. Stocks are to high, P2P lending and saving accounts are boring, bitcoin is crazy and i dont have much knowledge on anything else. Premium bonds look interesting but would they beat inflation long term? and 50K cap. If i sold my whole stack, i would get around 13K, not a huge amount but not a small amount either. I can really only see myself selling everything to buy a house outright. Right now i could buy a 3 bed council house for 55-60k. So i am a quarter'ish to way there in 3 1/2 years. 15-20 years would be doable i reckon. After you figured out what to do with your money, you have to figure out what to do with your time. How much time do you spend watching youtube videos, on the forum, reading articles, checking charts, searching ebay, updating spreadsheets, planning out orders are anything else silver related. I'd have nothing to do, my abandoned xbox would get much love again. It is more likely i would get bored and start stacking again Morel of the story, silver stacking is the dogs balls and perfect hobby/investment for me.
  7. As the titles asks, Do you ever think to reevaluate your stack? I dont have a huge stack but its decent at around 500 oz with 30 on the way. I have 132 different pieces according to my excel sheet, of course this number grows with every order. This in time will make my exit plan very time consuming. I often think about what if i stuck to buying my core coins, the 12 coins i stack every year religiously and cut out the rest, all the fun coins i buy just cause they look nice are, are new release coins that everyone else is getting them so i have to get some too What if i sold everything i have except for my core 12 and used the money to reevaluate my stack into those 12 coins from years 2015+ I started stacking at the end of 2013, learnt from mistakes in 2014 and got more organised in 2015. I know if i did this, i would roughly gain 25-35 oz's in the process and i would have a clean catalogued stack that would be easier and quicker to exit with. Core 12 - China panda, Congo gorilla, libertad, koala, Kookaburra, Perth lunar 1/2 oz, 1oz & 2oz, Somalian elephant, Uk britannia, Uk lunar series and finally kangaroos added in 2016. Some may think that 12 is still to many but i stack these because everyone knows them, they are easy to resell and i enjoy watching the date runs grow every year. I would make some personal stack with my brit date run, SBSS coins and 1 offs for under the bed, no more than 50 ozs. The master plan is to stack my core 12 for 5 years. Then each year after i will flip the oldest coin and buy that years. So in 2020, i will flip my 2015 coins to buy 2020's, maybe sell 20 to buy back 23-24 and get my stack to become self-funding. Oz's over premiums. Plus i would like to invest else where in a couple of years so my pension is not in 1 pot, still have 30+ years to go so plenty of time. But the self fundng thing is important to me, semi-passive pension fund with a few weeks of selling and buying each year. Nice wee pot off the rader away from the tax mans preying eyes. Second thought, my new avg per oz would make me cry Anyone ever thought of doing something like this are has done it? It seems like a good plan but it maybe boring not getting those 1 offs, the spice to the stack, Any thoughts?
  8. Hi, Getting ready to pull the trigger on my next order and came along this site, the prices seem to be decent and they have some interesting stuff. Just wondering if anyone had used them in the past are recently. Thanks in advance.
  9. When I started out Investing in Silver, I came across a Silver "Krugerrand" coin. (As per the image attached) At first this intrigued me as I instinctively thought it was well known worldwide. I was obviously mislead by the fact that this Silver coin was simply a privately minted "commemorative" coin which attempts to ride on the back of the popularity of the well known Gold Krugerrand. Being from South Africa I can assure you that this is not a government minted coin and no-one here I've ever spoken has even heard of the coin. Thankfully I did not buy it as it would have been very hard to sell in the future. There were many of these little pitfalls that I didn't know when I started investing in Silver. Having been a Silver Investor now for many years, I figured out where many of the beginner mistakes and pitfalls are that most new Silver Investors experience. I decided to create a guide called [link removed] to cover all of the issues and hopefully get more new Silver Investors to start stacking. It explains to beginners how to get started in Silver Investing, how to avoid buying the wrong Silver like the Silver "Krugerrand" above and how to keep stacking even when the mainstream media and financial "experts" say otherwise. I've even added a list of dealers, graphs and other essential resources to make it incredibly easy for people to get started.
