    Thanks for this - this is likely the way we'll go forward. It makes the most sense for our situation. Chards storage is also a good plan for the interim. Will look into this. Cheers

    Thanks Tony, good to know there's a reliable option here in Spain. Can't say i'd trust many of my local coin dealers where I live on the coast...

    Thanks for the info Silence, you've hit the nail on the head with the valid point about which coins to go for, dependant on where we will live longer term. That is a big issue for us and why we originally thought the Philharmonic would suit best. We have lived world over for the last 15 years. Next year we head to Asia, then after we'll most likely be in Aus or NZ for some time. We've decided to start with British coins sticking to Britannia, Queens Beasts (for the novelty factor of encouraging us to collect the set as an incentive) and a few Sovereigns. However, i'm aware we would probably also be wise to then move onto a mix of everything from everywhere! Seeing as we're British nationality and have our families in the UK, it'd always be easy to arrange sale of coins if needed in emergency. The idea is a long term investment and not exactly to make money - just secure some of it for when the financial system breaks down...
  5. I just purchased this yesterday from coin invest, they had limited stock

    Hi Alex, Very helpful info here especially the European Mint for silver. I also like the idea to buy what im drawn to as opposed to using my logical mind. It'd all be a very long term investment anyway and you're right - there's no guarantee of anything in life paying off so i might aswell enjoy the collection along the way! Cheers

    Thanks for this, will definitely look more into sovereigns then. It was in fact replacing a sovereign that started me off on journey anyway so i'll stick to learning more about them...

    Thanks for the tip. I've just found the helpful link http://goldprice.eu5.net/# Cheers - I'll do as you suggest. I'm just in the process of weighing up Soveriegn vs Britannia and thinking to go half/half in terms of stacking. Need to research a bit more as coming into this very blind. Super helpful forum though and great way to invest money for the long term that i'd otherwise end up spending

    Haha thanks both, yes makes sense. The world is clearly going tits up ahead and with hindsight the vault isn't a great idea. Physical it is. Any tips on where to purchase from online? I know there's dealers on here so i'll look into that too

    Hi everyone, New to precious metal investing but looking to secure myself for the future as we head into uncertain times.... I live in Spain but am from the UK. I was hoping to invest in Austrian Philharmonic via Muenze Oesterriech (and use their vault service). Have since discovered it's almost impossible to buy online via their site. Can anyone recommend a reputable dealer which we can purchase from in Euro? I thought by going direct to the mint, it would be the safest bet (in terms validity and quality). I was hoping to use their vault as it seems the safest option, however perhaps it's better to have the physical in your own hands... what do you suggest? We aren't talking tens of thousands.... just enough as a back up plan. Would you also put preference on one particular coin? I assume if i'm purchasing (for example) 1 ounce, it doesnt matter whether it's Britanica, philharmonic or eagle? Or have I misunderstood? Finally, we looked at the UK Royal Mint but as it's a government operation - i'm a little concerned that if things were to take a great turn for the worse, the government has an option to seize assets. I realise this may sound a little out there, but i'd prefer to be using a vault that is independant of governments. Sorry if this all sounds rather simple for those amongst you with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much
