Good morning/afternoon/evening everybody.  I am very excited to be joining your community and for all of the great opportunities available to me as a forum member.  Just thought I'd like to share a little about myself and my specific interests in stacking and numismatics.

First and foremost, I consider myself to be a silver and gold stacker.  I have recently made the switch over from numismatics and I enjoy collecting both government and generic bullion.  Specifically, I am drawn to Canadian Maples, American Eagles, Chinese Pandas, Australian Kookaburras and Lunars, pre-33 US gold and 90% constitutional, older gold coins that can be found near melt value, any Native American themed bar or round, poured silver and gold, and honestly so much more!  This is such a fascinating hobby to me because it combines history and collecting with investment.

I do still pick up numismatic pieces from time to time.  My collection is almost entirely made up of American and Japanese pieces. Actually, I live in Japan and therefore it's comparatively easy for me to find Meiji coins and pre-Meiji (Edo) pieces for fair prices.  I am hoping for this to be a unique offering that I can provide The Silver Forum community with and assist community members in acquiring Japanese items through trading.

I look forward to becoming acquainted with you all!

Hi and welcome

would love to see the pictures of the hand poured silver with Japanese "stamps and letters"

do you use PayPal or Transferwise   https://transferwise.com/gb/blog/japan-welcome-to-transferwise

@flim I haven't purchased any Japanese bullion but here's a prominent dealer's website: https://www.tokuriki-kanda.co.jp/secure/english/products/goldbullion/goldEtc/order/index.shtml

There are a ton of bullion dealers in the Kanda area and also Okachimachi

@Oldun Thanks for the tip.  Actually I live in Okinawa, which is a 3-hour plane ride from Tokyo but next time I'm visiting the big city, I'll be sure to explore these areas

Here you go. Used them in the past for bits and bobs.https://gold-ichiba.com/en/  Not so cheap but they deliver.

 

https://www.ishifuku.co.jp/  Tanaka, Mitsubishi Metals, etc etc...tohki. My advice is to buy bullion in your home country (use transferwise for sending funds) though and bring it over when you go home for a visit or have it sent in small packages (even if it gets tagged, the import duty is only 4%)....much cheaper than in Japan at bullion dealers.

I would certainly be interested in some of these Meiji if you have prices. Also if you can get 1yen Meiji at decent prices, don’t mind circulated low grades ;)
