Hi All 

Ive been a free member on the forum for a while, as I found it from Backyard Bullion's YouTube channel after I'd started stacking during the crash of 2020, but I'm now paid-up and hoping to do all my purchases/sales on here from now on.

I'm a firm believer in tangible investments, buying art and sculpture as well as bullion. Having worked in finance for a long time and seeing the future of pensions, I love having something other than numbers on a screen when it comes to storing my money. 

If anyone is into EDC (every day carry) as a hobby, give me a shout! 

Thanks and take care

Welcome to the forum! Would love to know what art and sculptures you invest in also.

Looking to buy: 1838 and 1839 full sovereign and the 1924 full bullion sovereign.

Great question, thanks!

I go for modern artworks where I think the pieces have presence or some nostalgia and, as with any investment, it's about buying when no one else sees the value especially if you can get an original or very low print run piece. 

JJ Adams is a favourite for hanging art as he kind of exploded in popularity but really if I like it, see value in enjoying it and it's appeal to people in general then quality will always give a return. 

Do you have any favourite artists or styles?

I like JJ Adams! Great looking art and a solid investment.

I used to buy loads of art, still have everything on the wall. But i never started collecting for the investment. I bought art because i liked it or to support the artist. Usually starting artists and not yet discovered. I still have good contacts with them.

I like Paul Insect a lot, but his prices went way beyond my budget. I do think all his art is brilliant.

Liking the art and wanting to support someone is 100% the key to enjoying what you invest in. An ISA will never bring the same joy! Plus you get the satisfaction of making profit and passing a beautiful thing on to someone else to enjoy when you sell (dealer fees aside of course). 

Paul Insect's work is fantastic! Slightly creepy and unhinged but that suits me fine 😂
