  1. @ZigZag that's interesting to know, I didn't even realise that Sarnia Silver existed, albeit their website looks a bit ancient, and frankly it's the most un-imaginitive name for a Guernsey company! ('Sarnia' is the name of the island in our traditional language). To buy locally we shouldn't have any VAT whatsoever, but in terms of exporting the loopholes have tightened, so I'm still working out what an exist plan might look like one day, i.e. if I will need to pay tax on sending second hand silver to the UK. Could it have been Bruce Russel perhaps? The restaurant is still there, and it's always busy, being in the wealthier part of the island! Thanks everyone else for the welcome messages. I'm doing a lot of lurking, made a few purchases off members, and I'm trying not to let the stack grow faster than my knowledge!
  2. Cześć @Zolee! I'm in a very similar boat to you, having joined the forum just a few weeks ago, and with a similar mindset. As an engineer also I completely agree with the inverse relationship on mathematical ability to soul content... however, i'm starting to realise I might have the soul of a dragon, and hoarding precious metals might now be my thing. I spent some time working in Gdańsk a few years ago, and have close ties with a software house there, where abouts in the country are you?
  3. Would you consider 800 for the lot, plus postage?
  4. I'll take both please, if still available.

  6. If possible, please add me to the list for 1 bar please, but I appreciate it's getting long! Fantastic work on the bars, I've really enjoyed your videos.
  7. Thanks for the welcoming messages chaps I've made a few purchases of silver now, so have initiated the stacking, now it's time to suck up information from the forum and not go crazy with purchasing out of stack envy! @ChrisSilver have you been to Guernsey?
  8. Welcome Wannapop! I'm also pretty new, so really have no right to give advice, but over the last week I've made my first few purchases and am eagerly waiting the arrival. Without sounding like a salesman, today I decided to buy a "Silver" subscription to the site, and I can say that there have been some good deals posted in the trade section that you will only see as a member. In terms of how much you plan to spend on postage for a few bits, it's nothing, and you can of course not keep it going for the next month (I will continue). I've used goldsilver.be/ and chards.co.uk/ prior to joining as a member, but I'll definitely be watching to sales on this site with a close eye. As a newbie I'll give you one piece of advice that i'm not sure anyone with any experience will remember. Buy something nice that you can hold against your cheek and whisper your deepest desires into. My first purchase I went purely for oz/£, and although excited, I was left feeling 'meh' the next morning when looking at my order confirmation about the coins I purchased from a stacking point of view. I've spent my monthly budget. I want something with a dragon on it. Or a unicorn. Or a flipping Griffin. I know I won't sleep well again until I have what I want, so will need to go over this months budget with another order. Perhaps look deep into your heart like I didn't, and buy one small cool thing to get it out of your system, so you can approach stacking with a more level head! I did mention, but i'll say it again, I'm new so take my advice with a pinch of salt.
  9. Hey everyone, I'm fairly new to precious metals, and trying to immerse myself in learning as much as possible! A few weeks ago I started researching and perhaps surcame to a little bit of fear mongering about the economy, or messages that gold/silver are going to rocket, and there is a fear of missing out. I've perhaps sobered a little now with more information, but for sure still wish to invest a little looking more at the long term. I've already purchased a little silver, and am eagerly awaiting the arrival so I can put my coins into a little pile and stare at them like a hoarding dragon. As a first purchase I was planning on buying a little silver or gold locally from BullionRock.com (formerly the Guernsey Mint), but to my surprise they are completely out of silver with the exception of a monster 30kg bar which is way out of my range (and really, I don't know if a big lump is a great idea despite the better value per ounce). I'd be interested to hear if anyone has experience of buying through Bullion Rock. With them out of the equation, I am somewhat restricted in purchasing online as shipping in some cases tips a purchase into a bad investment, but some retailers are able to remove the VAT for postage to Guernsey which can balance the scales or even tip it into my favour. I'm looking forward to getting to know the forum a little better, cheers!
