  • What I am collecting / Investing in
    Since starting my strategy has evolved. I think most stackers start off a bit directionless, buying a bit of everything, I was no different. Now my focus is on building my bullion stack to a set level before venturing back into semi-numismatics and high premium collectables. Focusing mainly on sovereign bullion in both gold and silver.
    For collecting, I have started a world coin silver collection. I'm trying to get examples of circulated silver coinage used throughout the world.
  • Coin series I have completed
    As I'm still relatively new to stacking/ collecting I haven't completed any yet. Once the last Queens Beast comes out I will have.
  • Whats in my stack/collection
    At the moment it consists mainly of sovereigns and gold coins of the LMU for gold, and Maples, Britannias, Philharmonics and ASEs for silver.

  1. A good point to start on, when deciding what to buy, is where you will sell? I'd personally recommend you start researching your local area for coin and bullion dealers, antique and pawn shops. Chat to them, see what they are most interested in buying. After all, they will most likely be the ones buying it off you in the long run.
  2. In response to your original question. I wear gloves on my YouTube videos because I've got ugly, rough working man's hands. When my hands take up 50% of the screen I'm sure people don't want to see the cement under my nails or my cuts, blisters and calluses 😀
  3. The best advice I can give you if you haven't started stacking yet is to go out and research selling your silver. I would stack what I can sell readily. What is in highest demand can change from country to country, city to city and dealer to dealer. Go checkout your local coin shops, bullion dealers, pawn shops, antique shops etc. and see what they offer for silver. Stack based on your findings.
  4. I've been playing around with melting sterling this week. It's different from pouring pure silver. The exterior ends up much more gnarly and needs a lot of finishing, grinding and polishing if you want a nice final finish.
  5. Like BYB, so far the best way I've found to reduce the scale is to have about 20g extra in the crucible that gets left. The graphite tends to concentrate on the last bit. Once cooled I take off the scale from my left over blob with a dremel and a grinder bit, ready to be thrown in to the next melt.
  6. This was an interesting thread to read. I've made several purchases with the European mint and, mostly, have had decent coins delivered. I have had some coins that were milk spotted, like the 2016 RCM Supermans (notorious for milking), and more recently some 2019 Royal Arms. Personally it didn't bother me receiving a few milky coins in a large order. Don't get me wrong, I would have preferred perfect coins, but I understand that it's almost impossible for large volume dealers to check everything that goes out of the door. I didn't complain, but if I had and was offered the deal the
  7. Basically just go into the original post and edit it.
