If you could only stack one gold and/or silver coin

Recommended Posts

If you could only stack one gold and/or silver coin, what would it be? This question is a variation on the question regarding stacking silver coins posted by @ChrisSIlver back in 2014. It would be nice to know what stackers choice of coins are in 2019.

Well stacking implies we are looking at weight of silver - i think i would go for Perth Lunar - a bit more expensive but they don't spot like most of the rest, they come in a capsule and they are a quality coin with some interest and a chance of collector appreciation.

In gold i would pick the sovereign and half sovereign - from past experience of forum members i expect this to be a clear favourite.

That is a hard question to answer as I don't stack silver or gold for weight. However, if I was to stack, I would mainly stack gold mainly either sovereigns because everyone here loves them and inspired me to want to get one, or pre-33 gold as I am American and love US coins. For silver it would be ASEs or junk silver.

Personally, I would go with the 1 Troy ounce 99999 (five 9s) gold from the Royal Canadian Mint. Besides the five 9s purity, they are limited mintage, issued in a different design every year, comes in a lucite holder (embedded in a carded COA) and is priced at a reasonable premium over spot. :ph34r:

For gold, that would have to be sovereigns. For silver... I'm thinking silver krugerrands are a good bet, they have global appeal, unlike ASE which are more American, and Britannia that are more British, etc.

I'm actually trying to do this. Accumulate sovereigns and silver krugerrands. I haven't yet started on the silver krugerrands, no funds available for that yet... still concentrating on getting a fair amount of sovereigns first. 😛

They may have had a hiatus for a few years like I did. I was lurking for a good while before I got back into posting regularly.

Wow, only choosing one silver, and one gold? Is this like choosing a favorite child?

For silver, instinctively I'd say US mint dimes, but to have fewer tubes but same amount of silver, I'd go for half dollars.

For gold, I'd go for 1/10 ounce gold Eagles. But to have fewer tubes I'd go for pre-1933 $5 Half Eagles.

For me it would be Sovereigns because of their:

- Availability at decent premium over spot

- Quality

- Diversity - variance of designs, years, monarchs, die numbers

- Number of 'errors' / oddities (e.g. overstrikes) that are possible to run across accidentally

- International appeal

Best
