Hello everyone! I mentioned earlier in the year about creating some 250g Silver Forum Bars to compliment the 1oz and 100g Bars. I have completed my prototype bar and here it is! These bars are really chunky and have a great feel to them. They have the Silver Forum logo on them as well as "250g", 2018 and of course the all important Hallmark from the Edinburgh Assay Office. They will also have their serial numbers stamped on the side of the bar. I am now taking pre-orders for these bars. If you would like to have one of these bars made then please let me know by commenting here or PM'ing me. These bars will be minted to order throughout the year and the mintage will be declared at the end of 2018. Because they are large pieces I am expecting a maximum of 25 of these to be made. But if you all want one please feel free to prove me and @ChrisSIlver wrong. In terms of reserving specific serial numbers it will be on a first come first served basis. If you would like a specific serial number then please let me know - if more than one person wants the same number we can try and work it out together or simply do a coin toss. Serial numbers 1 & 2 are reserved for @ChrisSIlver and myself. Pre-orders, production and delivery As I mentioned above I will be making these bars throughout the course of 2018. I hope to be able to make these in a number of batches to keep production and hallmarking costs to a minimum. As such I envisage the first batch to be created, stamped, hallmarked and ready for delivery by May 2018. If you would like to order these bars then I would ask for a minimum of 50% deposit to be paid to secure your bar(s). Feel free to pay the full balance - but I would require at least a 50% deposit. Prices are set as follows Standard member price - £200 Premium member price - £175 Postage: +£7.50 via Royal Mail Special Delivery (fully insured) or +£4 for 1st Class Signed (at your risk) Free Special delivery postage included for more than one item. A few notes on pricing These bars are hand poured, hand stamped and polished by me. They take a lot of time and energy and equipment to create. These are premium hand poured silver products, not cheap bullion. They are a way to support me (as a fledgling business), my brand and the Silver Forum. Proceeds from the sale of these bars go towards the upkeep and running costs of this forum. This helps keep membership prices as low as possible for premium and gold premium members and ensures that standard members can still use this forum for free. Standard members - The difference in price is as a way for you to support the forum in a one off style payment rather than signing up for membership. But also please feel free to upgrade your membership to take advantage of the discounts available. The price also incorporates the Hallmarking costs, this includes postage of these bars to and from Edinburgh and the application of a large hallmark. Speaking of which here is a closeup of the hallmark: If you are interested then please let me know in this thread or via PM. Also, I welcome all feedback and any questions you might have about these bars. Thanks for reading and thanks for supporting The Silver Forum!
