Someone started stacking... (me!)

Recommended Posts

Welcome!  It is said that a journey of a 1,000 miles begins with a single step.  When we share the experiences of our journey, it will fortify us to continue stacking in the long run.   Good job on your 20 oz, that's definitely more than when I first started out.

As a relatively new TSF member myself I can safely say how fun it is being sensible, for those reasons you listed, on here. A little financial stability in a tangible asset really does help me sleep better at night and the forum gives me something to read over my morning coffee. 

Buying precious metals, for me, is a way of spending my money on savings. As opposed to spending my savings. 

I think that makes sense...

I wanted to introduce myself as a brand new stacker. This is day 1 for me on TSF.

By way of introduction, I found my way into the world of stacking, not through traditional 'investing' or 'collecting' channels, but through more of the geo-political discourse. I'd started to investigate ways of moving funds away from traditional banking environments (FIAT currency) and was immediately attracted to the proposition of investing in (physical) metals. I hope that doesn't make me seem like a doomsayer. But whilst I'm not expecting the worst, it's fair to say my spider-sense has recently started to tingle.

Investing in precious metals seems to me, to be a sensible way to hedge against some of the potential scenarios at play, whilst maintaining a portfolio that can be handed to my children for their futures.

I only wish my pockets were deeper. As it is, I'm likely to be one of the forum's more modest investors.

I took possession this week of my first 20oz of silver - 13 Britannias and 7 Maples, thanks to the lovely folks at @ChardsCoinandBullionDealer

A small stack. But, from little acorns do mighty oaks grow. I hope that my investment journey continues for many yeears to come and that I enjoy it alongsiide you fine folks and this community.

All the best,


Welcome to the forum FNF! Good way to start your stack!!
