Hi All,

I sold my stack of Krugerrands about 18 months ago but have really missed stacking so want to get back into it.

I have a budget of about a grand a month but not sure whether to go for Krugerrands (I have a 'thing' for them) or to start buying silver, either Walking Liberties or silver Krugs - any thoughts?

Finaly, I spend 2 weeks a month in Belgium so, to keep delivery costs to zero, does anyone know of any Brussels (or close to) dealers that I can walk in and purchase from? As an aside, goldsilver.be is about 2 minutes drive from the shooting range I go to, but on their website they clearly say collecting from their premises doesn't reduce delivery costs of orders!

Cheers

David

It does if you take your gun with you... reduces the cost of the silver/gold to spot minus 100% as well 😛

Krugs are best sourced in Birmingham - usually pick them up 3% over spot

failing that HGM have OKish prices currently £1028.11 per Krug - however you have to add delivery if you arent picking up yourself.

Thanks all - I know about Sovs and Britannias, I had 20oz of gold before selling up, most was Krugs but I had a couple of Britannias and a couple of tubes of Sovs. I sourced most from Atkinsons and a bit from HGM.

As far as getting a 100% discount after a day at the range... 😱 😀 😱.

My main question at the moment is whether to get into VAT free silver or to go back to Krug collecting....and also where to buy to keep costs to a minimum

Cheers for the input 👍

Stick with the gold,

(1)you will remember what your 20oz looked like.     Now work out how much space £20k of silver will take.  

(2) don’t know who sold gold to but if was HGM etc probably got 98% odd of spot, sliver will be less I expect and you will need help to take it there.

(3) bought a cracking 100oz bar last year and think it cost over £30 to send that imagine the cost in postage it will be if you send to private buyers

(4) BYB has group orders, see some of his unboxing vids to see what £20 silver looks like......... then try hiding in cupboard 

(5) stick to gold!!!
