Hello Everyone,


Just a hello from the UK. I am currently an early retiree who has been transferring over my vaulted gold and silver to physical instead. It did well, but the counterparty risk in the current climate means I no longer view the bullion allocation as insurance anymore.


Majority of what I had has now been reallocated to physical. Mostly sovereigns, britannias and then a few other items that I thought looked nice and to get a little bit of variety. I have target bullion price (silver didn't really work as well there).


Shame everything was processed before I spotted this forum and had a look around. Would have made that switch easier I think.


I don't intend to sell in the immediate future, however I may keep an eye on the trade areas in the future if I do happen to pick up work again. I don't have any immediate plans to accumulate more though, if anything it would be allocation switches from other investments.

Cheers everyone,


Been gradually convincing a few people I know they should consider a bit of bullion as insurance. Can feel more people start to think about it.

Good to find somewhere that has a group of people that already think the metals still have value. I move from investment only to long term mindset only over the last couple years.
