  1. Hi mate, welcome to the forum. There is a fair few folks from your side of the water as members here. Don't be put off by minimal funds. You would be surprised how quickly a stack can grow, even with modest means and it is a good way of saving. What coins did you get left if you don't mind saying?

    Hi and welcome.

    Hi and welcome.
  4. Congrats, it took me 6 years to reach my goal. If not already, I would suggest having an emergency cash fund of 6 months living expenses and then concentrate on diversifying into other assets. I have done the first and now looking to second along with overpaying the mortgage. I wish I had tackled this 20 years ago but better late than never.
  5. Hi, put a wanted ad in the trade section, someone will probably be able to help. Also consider premium membership and you will see all offers as they are posted.
  6. Not sure Atkinsons would get away with saying they found said bars at the bottom of a pool though. I would be interested to see how this plays out also.
  7. Hi and welcome to the forum.
  8. Hi and welcome to the forum.
  9. Hi and welcome to the forum. You are doing the right thing by researching the topic before making any purchases, especially as prices are high currently. My advice would be to stick mainly to gold (sovereigns) if you are stacking and not collecting.
  10. Worth grabbing a sov or 2 if you're ok with spot price movements either way.

    Gold buyers slowing down

    If I had an issue with postage like you describe, I would have no issue with asking for the difference back. Also, in making it public knowledge if sure it was not a genuine mistake. i think @arshimo2012 sets the gold standard here, as far as reselling goes.

    Gold buyers slowing down

    I'm not having a go, but I think I remember that a few years ago you were trying to eek out a % out of the buy sell spread by way of placing wanted ads. I mind thinking at the time, is it worth attempting to save £4/ £8 pound on a deal when you believe the price will rise 50 or 100% within a few years. Here we are in this situation, were those sales ads for £800/£900 etc an ounce at time really worth knocking back for less than a percent? That said, for all I know you may have scooped up,all the metal,at the price you wanted, but I would think it unlikely. Here again you appear overly concerned with premiums. I'm not buying now as I hope I have enough metal. If I thought I did not, I would keep buying, regardless of today's spot price or premiums asked.
  13. Looks interesting, thanks. Personally I would be wary of holding yen, I would take on the Yuan, although it's not free floating PRC can place it anywhere, however they have the metal to back it when time comes.
  14. Wouldn't you be spending a lot/most of your time (and dosh) making your derelict property cosy, or is that part of the plan. Hope it works out.
