What I am collecting / Investing in.

  1. I just got back into stacking a year ago, and just started on youtube a couple weeks ago. Lots of familiar faces here Anyway, here is a link to m y one year stack vid. Thanks!! It was also the first video I did and I was super nervous, still learning and getting more relaxed
  2. I sent in a gold 50 peso coin to NGC under express tier with the Mexican special label request. After a week (not the promised 2 days) my coin was marked as shipped but still said "grading and quality control". I couldn't see the grade and there were no pictures uploaded to the database. I got the coin today (no special label just the standard NGC one) and the serial number and bar code come up as invalid by my NGC app. So if I were to try and sell this coin it wouldn't even register as a legitimate NGC graded coin.
  3. I recently purchased a second gold 50 Peso 1947. The 1947s are the last year the coin was officially minted and also the date that all restrikes carry. I believe the second one I purchased that is currently ungraded is an original. What does everyone think based on the subtle differences in the pictures.
  4. Hello everyone,in this topic i would like to discuss about the current price of gold. I'm currently planning in buying some of it but i have seen that lately is getting higher in price,i remember buying a Sovereign just around the same month in the last year and it was about 258€ and now is around 300+ €. I'm not sure if i should wait for the price to drop or if i should buy right now considering it might go even higher. As we have seen many countries are buying gold right now such as China,Russia,Poland and so on and that could be the thing that is getting these prices right now. What do you think guys,should i buy right now or wait a couple of months hoping it drops a bit? Really want to know everyone's opinion about this but mostly from veterans that have been buying precious metals for a long time. Thanks for stoping by and have a nice day. ⚜️
  5. Hi. I’m trying to buy the 2017 gold proof Piedfort sovereign. I can get one for £1595 on Is it too expansive? They say it’s brand new from the Royal Mint two years ago. Is Chards a reputable firm? I’ve never heard of them and I don’t know if I should buy the coin from them. Where else can I buy this coin? Also, how likely is this coin going to be sought after in the future? As some of you might know, I am trying to decide whether to buy the 1989 gold proof 3 coin set sovereign for about £3000 from a very reputable firm (original case & COA) or the 2017 Piedfort from Chards. Which one should I go for? Thanks!
  6. Hi everyone. Just to let you know we have an ongoing offers page here. There's gold, silver and palladium, with premiums as low as 0.9%! We're also trying to add a mixture of low and high value, and bullion and numismatic items. We are adding to it daily so make sure to check back. If there's anything you'd like to see in the offers, let us know and we'll see what we can do.
  7. 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
  8. Hi everyone, Up until now I have been buying all my numismatics and bullion directly from APMEX. Yesterday I was surfing ebay and found a lovely 2 Sovereign 1983 coin apparently graded by NGC at PF69. I want to hit the button but I've heard of a lot of fakes on ebay. Is it safe or will I get a penny slug instead of a Sovereign?
  9. Here is a video I have done whilst packaging up a parcel for delivery for a Forum member. I hope you enjoy.
  10. I am very new to PMs and started by going for sheer weight, bought a few Oz's, then went for 1/4oz QBs and slowly started edging towards more collectible coins. I'm now getting "urges" to start grabbing proof sovereigns but feel like I'm drifting from my original plan, which is ultimately stack weight but in an easy to liquidate manner. Think I prefer 1/4oz coins or sovereigns purely because they seem to be more affordable for people and therefore can be easier to liquidate. Think I might diversify and have my main bulk as bullion coins e.g Britannia's/Sovs and maybe along the way grab some more numismatic proofs if I have the expendable funds for it. I'm sure this topic has been covered in other threads but I'm skiving at work, so decided to start a new discussion. Interestedto hear other people's opinions and their own personal strategies.
  11. Hi guys, I know I'm a month late and I'm not sure if I all ready introduced myself here on the forum; if I did let me do it again. My user name is SilverPanFan. I consider myself to be more of a collect and numismatic guy then a pure bullion stacker who only cares about spot price. As my name suggests, I love the silver pandas but I have a real interest in ancients, classic American coinage, some world coins, old currency notes, and odd denomination. I began seriously collecting coins about two years ago when a friend of mine told she collects coins. I started out my collecting journey with the three cent nickel. Yes, I loved the fact that the US need coin worth three cents to be used for converting foreign money that was in circulation and something to help pay for stamps when they where worth three cents. I got into ancients because the same friend also collects ancients. I prefer to collect the coins of the Bible because it helps bring the stories to life in a new and interesting perspective. You don't really understand the angry towards the money exchangers until you see the temple currency that was required to pay for animals to sacrifice. Biblical money also helps you understand the meaning behind give to Ceaser what is Ceasers. Last, I a belive banknote currency is art in your pocket. If you take a look at some the older currency notes in history, they posses rich artistic details that you will never be able to find on a coin. Take a look at some of the older notes from the 19th and early 20th century. You'll find beautiful renditions of elegantly posed women, angels, figure heads of the day, city landscapes in the background, and full color unlike our coinage of today. So with that I would like to thank @Numistacker and @BackyardBullion for letting me know about the forum. Have a great day.
  12. hey guys, I'm thinking about ordering a C grade sov from chards for £248.19 Do you have any experience with that... or shall I better pay £2 extra and get a "better" looking one for £250.
  13. hey guys, I don't want to overcomplicate things, this could go either way, you would all lough at how stupid I'm or it might be very interesting for many of us (specially the newbie, like me)... to know how you all go about this... I was just thinking about gold SPOT price and SOVs prices and PREMIUM. Am I right, in this excel calculation: Sov price - (Spot x 7,98) : (Spot x 7,98) x 100 = PREMIUM if we take the crazy B&H price of last week £224 and a SPOT of £33.22 Gold price a gr. 224 - (33.22 x 7,98) : (33.22 x 7,98) x 100 224 - (265) : (265) x 100 -36 : (265) x 100 = -15.5% at 224 we bought (estimated +/-) B&H sovs at minus -15.5% Premium? at 249 we are still under Spot Price by 6+%... right? DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE 22c or 24c AT ANY POINT? Or how do you think/calculate PREMIUM? Is there any app or page that might do this much easier...? Thank you all.
  14. Added 0 minutes later... I got my reverse proof libertad results from NGC today RP 70s for the 1oz and 1/2oz. I am very happy.
  15. 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....?
  16. Bitcoin took some hard knocks, its shown resilience through a trough and has now risen 124% in the last three months, with gold down 2% and silver down 7% over the same period. Corporate and institutional adoption of BTC is also gaining traction. Where does this leave the metals in terms of comparative investment potential and priority, for people and business alike? Is a crypto 'stack' of equal clout becoming a necessary diversification for all conscientious PM stackers? Is crypto an even better anti-central bank investment than physical gold and silver? If the global trend continues to favour crypto over PMs the metals market could get smoked in terms of gains and utility in the short to mid-term. What are the forums thoughts?
  17. Hello, I have and 1896 Quarter Eagle and would like to get graded through NGC. I will pay the grading fee plus another US$5-10 for shipping.
  18. Hey Guys , I know that most of the retail traders are expecting the prices of gold and silver to go up. But my research and studies show different. In fact Gold and Silver are about to crash. Please refer to the following video for more details. shaheen from elliottwavegreen
  19. All 5 Germania's at last, now will add photos and list them in the for sale section. But I unbox the last one.
  20. I'm interested in why the 1839 Una & The Lion £5 was commissioned by Queen Victoria? What was the purpose if it wasn't circulated?
  21. 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.
  22. Following on from the worst looking coin thread, what do you think are the best looking ones? I'll start, mine are quite random but I've always loved the look of these...
  23. Hi All, I was thinking about the posts I see on this forum, what comes up for sale on eBay, and what is mentioned in auction sites and on coin websites and came to the following conclusion. If it isn't old copper (think US large cents or British Colonial currency), ancient (non-PM roman coins for instance), or a Mint Error (some lovely mules, off center strikes, and planchet errors) then people seem to only want to buy, sell, trade, and talk about "silver & gold". Of course, the whole idea behind the silver forum is for people interested in silver (and gold), but I've noticed that trend in almost every other aspect of coin collecting. I mention this because some of my favorite coins are base metals and, at least in the US, some copper/bronze cents can go for significant amounts of money depending on condition and mintage figures. Is the PM market flooded because there is significant variety? speculators? an ideology? easier to collect these coins? Just trying to share my love of non-PM currency and find out if I'm simply strange or a part of a larger community that is a bit quieter.
