    GoldenDuck reacted to BackyardBullion in 100g The Silver Forum Bars (2020) - Official Release Thread!   
    UPDATE 5th September 2020
    First up, a massive thank you to everyone who was able to take up a bar in 2020 to match their 2019 editions, your continued support of the Backyard Bullion brand and The Silver Forum is greatly appreciated!
    The Waiting List is CLOSED
    We have formally closed the waiting list and have randomly drawn the order of preference for allocation of bars. 
    With nearly 200 people on the waiting list and only 76 bars to allocate out there will be some people that are left out and disappointed - For this we are sorry but there are only so many of these that we can and want to make. There are more Silver Forum Branded pieces coming out later this year and we have plans for more in 2021!
    You will be contacted if you have been allocated a bar
    I have already sent out messages to all the members that have been allocated a bar. 
    Those members have 1 week to reply and confirm they want to take up their allocation. 
    Should anyone decline the offer to purchase or not reply within 1 week we will work our way down the list of people. 
    So if you have NOT received a message from me yet you might still be in with a chance. 
    Serial Number reservations
    We will be opening up a thread on Saturday 12th September at 7pm UK time for a first come first served reservation list of available numbers. 
    To be able to bid on that thread for a specific number you will need to have been a) Allocated a bar and b) paid for it! 
    We will be tagging all members eligible to bid on that thread when the time comes. 
    That is it for now!
    A big thank you once again for all of the support and we will share more updates when we can!

    UPDATE TIME
    OK - here is the situation. The production of the bars are being finished in the next week. Production has taken longer than expected (life getting in the way I am afraid). 
    In addition to that we have been speaking with the Edinburgh Assay Office and they are exceptionally busy at the moment so we are looking at a 3 week minimum turnaround with them.
    So my original shipping date of week commencing 29th April is going to be pushed back to week commencing 13th May.
    This will allow us enough time to finish the bars and get them out without killing ourselves!
    Thank you to everyone who has reserved/paid for bars already.
    SERIAL NUMBER RESERVATIONS
    For those that were on the waiting list and have now paid, I will be opening up a thread on Sunday 14th April @ 6pm UK time where you will be able to (on a first come first served basis) reserve specific numbers. 
    After 24 hours, that thread will then become the general serial number reservation thread and any and all members that would like to get bars and specific numbers can do so there. 
    NEW PRICING STRUCTURE
    Standard or Non member price - £26.85 per bar
    Silver Premium member price - £24.75 per bar
    Gold & Platinum member price - £22.50 per bar
    UK Postage: +£3 via Royal Mail Signed for delivery for just one bar
    FREE POSTAGE: if you buy more than one bar 
    International postage: +£10 tracked, +£5 untracked. For international customers we can offer £3 off shipping for each additional bar purchased above 1 (so 3 bars will cost you £4 tracked or free untracked, 4 bars will be £1 tracked or free untracked - 5 bars or more, free tracked.

    I would expect that when you convert between your home currency and gold, this is a chargeable event and will result in a CGT gain or loss.

    GoldenDuck reacted to BackyardBullion in 100g Bar - does not get much better than this!   
    My brand new Trading Standards certificated and approved scales arrived today! 
    I went with https://www.marsden-weighing.co.uk/  he scales I bought were £125 including certificate and delivery - quite a big outlay for a small business, but it is the right step to take for the BYB business and brand!
    I have to say, very impressed with Marsdens - ordered them on Saturday morning, arrived Monday (today) at 7.15 am!!! Good job we are early risers because that is the earliest delivery I have ever taken!
    The good news - those 100g bars are certainly over 100g!
    Thanks to all the help and suggestions about this topic - I have a fun video showing these scales in action coming on Wednesday!

    I will just add one last point.
    I personally bank roll these forum bars projects - The Silver Forum receives royalties from the sales of the forum branded bars but they do not bank roll the project themselves. I do not collect funds up front - I start to collect funds after I have committed to a specific timetable of production. To create the forum bars in 2018 I am personally bankrolling nearly 900 oz of silver (not to mention the additional costs of manufacturing, hallmarking etc). 
    So kind of feel like I have a right to promote these bars on the main section of this forum.
