I’m new here and got a couple of 1 oz gold coins ( really nice) couple of sovs ( bit underwhelming) and the ‘seven’ 1oz coins in silver. Having trawled lots of posts on here, it seems the best way to stack pm is go for gold, to avoid vat and space, probably sovs as they are easy to offload and relative low premium. My budget is around £350 per month so thinking of getting 1 sov per month. I then started looking into collecting different heads, proof, unc, bu etc and that’s when the costs get silly. Also I see grade b coins but to be honest Im not particularly bothered if the coins are scratched / worn etc after all they are really old coins! At the end of the day I suppose it’s just gold and when cashed in by my kids 😀 , they will only get close to spot so probably best for me to buy it as close to that as poss as I’m ‘investing’ rather than ‘collecting’. I see a few dealers do a lucky dip - best value coins so thinking about that too, anyone go that route, was wondering do you get different heads etc as it might make the hobby more interesting but keep costs down?. Of course this forum seems great for buying sovs tho you have to be quick.
Any advice or opinions welcomed.
