I see the membership slowly creeping to the 20k, and was wondering how much TSF members hold as a collective. Just at an ounce a piece would mean 4-5 tonnes. I have heard some members have four poster bed made out of the stuff!

40 physical ounces 😊

My best plausible guess would be 20000 members x 200oz average ( people with a few ozs..people with thousands hence average)

4 million ozs 😳🤯 

Unfortunately I've none and just here for the memes😁

I like to buy the pre-dip dip

I'm not so sure. People on TSF are a funny bunch.  Members who are so attached to their stack would take with them on holidays. There are so many testimonies of members losing their stacks on tragic boating trips. Do you not believe us !!? 🙄

Well, given the unfortunate frequency of tragic boating accidents experienced by members of the forum, I imagine it would be quite a job to calculate. You'd obviously have to consider 'safe on land' vs. 'lost at sea' tonnage, in order to get reasonably close.

Very dipolmatic of you not to mention the following @Darr3nG @James32 and @GoldDiggerDave but I will!

You would think we'd learn after the first tragic boating accident, that silver does not float!

Last trip out, I put little life jackets on each 1oz piece, but alas, all were lost. Sad times. :(

Anyway to give the op full context - @James32 modelled his house on Basra palace which has gold taps sinks and lavs. 

@Darr3nG has modelled his abode on the  Sultan of Brunei's

Collectively they have 79882349 metric tonnes between them!

Youd need a massive wide angled lense just for @Darr3nG and @James32 stacks alone!

I suspect there will be people here who hold:

  • Nothing
  • A single 1oz coin
  • A stack
  • Whales who hold pretty significant amounts of silver - perhaps several thousand ounces

May be worth adding a poll, with these options? @ady

My guess is 'A stack' will get most hits, so possibly break that down further into incremental amounts?

I know this topic / thead is posted under 

"Home  Precious Metals  Silver  The Silver Forum Tonnage", but only because I looked.

When I first read it the title, I thought it referred to gold, but when I read the first entry, I thought "what is this guy talking about?".

Its always a good idea to specify and clarify, particularly in written communication.

I now assume, that @ady is asking about silver.

How about extending it to gold, platinum and palladium?

(2)

Can I play?
