    Bigmarc got a reaction from Spark268 in Silver and the decline of the Roman Empire   
    I watched a documentary once about this, might have been the secrets of Oz, can't remember. Anyhow, at the end of the Roman empire they talk a lot about how they kept the public entertained, the gladiator battles, feeding to the lions, the people had more and more of a infatuation to sex. I thought back the the similarity was believable. It went on to an experiment they did with mice. The provided mice with all their needs. They didn't need to do anything for themselves. What they found out was all the mice did day in day out was groom themselves. Again this just reflects today's society. 
    One thing I wonder what might be different today is. Did any other currency of that time line do the same and drop silver? 
    I ask this because I don't think any bank in the world keeps silver in its reserves anymore.

    Bigmarc got a reaction from SilverStorm in Newbie - strategy advice please   
    In reflection of my post last night, I think my views may not help a new starter as I am coming from the corner of someone that already has their goal in physical silver. Many people stack (accumulate) for all sorts of different reasons and it may help for you to decide why you are doing it and what is your goal. Please try not to be lead by faceless individuals when investing quiet a hefty budget. I personally have stopped buying silver as in comparison it is the most expensive it has been since starting. You may not have that option, I have also just started getting in to gold (to try and add a little balance). I currently have about 15 sovereigns so I am no expert.
    So when I say sovereign's, it's just where I am and the market is at the moment. 
    Cheers

    Just been to my favourite bullion dealer in the High Street for the 1/20oz Isle of Man angel and the 1887 silver crown. He only charged me £20 for the silver crown which was nice of him.

    Everitt Family Jewellers in Hatfield.
    It's the kind of place that has been there for centuries. There is a bit on display but most of his stuff is in the safe. Nice guy to chat to and he always tries to do a deal on multiple items. (For me anyhow).
