What are The Silver Forum Rounds all about?

The Silver Forum Rounds and bars (in all their sizes) have been created as a way to draw the silver forum community together but also as a fundraising and brand awareness raising exercise. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of these rounds go to The Silver Forum and help keep the forum running in the way we have become accustomed to. Silver Premium, Gold Premium and Platinum memberships go a long way to helping the running of the forum and to help keep the membership prices as low as practical, The Silver Forum rounds we make help a lot with this too.

Any support you can give is greatly appreciated.

In addition, these rounds are about raising brand awareness for The Silver Forum and to encourage new people to join and to make standard members think about supporting the forum by upgrading their membership or simply supporting the forum on a one off basis. 

Hand Poured Silver Partnership

Hand poured silver has evolved so much in the last 5 years and it is evident that Hallmarked Poured silver is becoming ever more popular.

These rounds are all hand poured, stamped and finished by myself meaning each and every round is unique in some way. The weights will vary round to round (although none less than 3 ozt) and the cooling patterns of the silver will also be unique and different for each one. Even the stamping (again done by hand) is different round to round.

Unique and limited edition pieces are a much more appealing product than a mass produced round (in my opinion) and can be better enjoyed by the simple fact you can hold, feel and enjoy the silver much more. 

Hallmarking

As with all of my Hand Poured Silver products these rounds are Assay Tested and Hallmarked by the Edinburgh Assay Office. 

These rounds are hallmarked with a 2mm sized mark - it is a larger and more expensive mark than normal but it really shows off the beauty of the Edinburgh Assay Office's work. 

Hallmarking is a legal requirement and also a very good addition to any piece of poured silver. It is your GUARANTEE that these rounds are indeed 999 fine silver and made by me in 2022.

If anyone wants to find out more about hallmarking please feel free to get in touch!

Schedule, production and delivery

These rounds are DONE and ready for immediate shipping. 

Mintage Figures

The Mintage for 2022 will remain the same as last year, 75 Rounds

Mintage figures are as follows for all the releases of 3 ozt rounds to date:

2022: 75 Rounds

2021: 75 Rounds

2020: 60 Rounds

2019: 50 Rounds

2018: 50 Rounds

These mintage figures are set and will not change.

Pricing 

Our pricing is as follows. I believe these prices to be a fair reflection of the work, time, energy and effort that goes into making these pieces and also take into account the increase in raw metal prices. 

Standard or Non member price - £106.00 per round

Silver Premium member price - £102.00 per round

Gold & Platinum member price - £98.00 per round

Platinum Plus member price - £96.00 per round

UK Postage: 

1 Round: +£3.50 (2nd Signed) or +£8 (Special Delivery)

2 Rounds or more: Free Special Delivery

International postage: +£15 tracked for 1 round or +£10 for 2 or more and free for 3+ rounds

COMBINED POSTAGE WITH OTHER FOUM PRODUCTS

We can offer the same discounts above for forum members looking to combine multiple products.

Our 5 oz Rounds are also available right now as well as a very limited number of new 1 oz Forum Rounds too!

As you can see there are some very good savings to be had for upgrading your membership - so take a look at the benefits that are available for premium and gold premium members today!

 

 

 

Guaranteed rounds for owners of 2021 editions

As with all our Silver Forum products we offer first right of refusal to all owners of a previous years serial number. 

So, the following applies:

  • If you own a round with a serial number between 1 and 75 from 2021¬†then you will be able to reserve the same serial number for 2022.
  • If you wish to reserve that number you need to do so¬†BEFORE¬†Sunday¬†30th¬†October¬†2022.
  • Members who do not own rounds from 2021 will be able to put their name down on a waiting list for unallocated rounds.
  • After 30th October 2022 we will know how many rounds are still available against how many people are on the waiting list.
  • In the event that there are more members than rounds available we will draw a random ballot to allocate rounds to people.
  • We will then communicate a fair and open way to decide who gets what bar(s).

In short, not got a 2021 round? Join the waiting list today!

To formally join the waiting list all you need to do is comment on this thread or drop me a PM that you wish to have a round. 

I hope that all makes sense. In summary, you have until 30th October 2022 to reserve and/or pay for your existing serial numbers if you have a 2021 edition.

A few notes on pricing of these rounds

These rounds are hand poured, hand stamped and polished by me. They take a lot of time and energy and equipment to create. These are premium hand poured silver products, not cheap bullion. They are a way to support the Backyard Bullion business, my brand and most importantly, The Silver Forum. As I said earlier, proceeds from the sale of these rounds go towards the upkeep and running costs of this forum. This helps keep membership prices as low as possible for premium and gold premium members and ensures that standard members can still use this forum for free. The price also incorporates the Hallmarking costs, this includes postage of these rounds to and from Edinburgh and the application of the hallmark.

Standard members -¬†The difference in price is as¬†ÔĽŅa way for you to support the forum in a one off style payment rather than signing up for membership. But also please feel free to upgrade your membership to take advantage of the discounts available.¬†

Payment Information

To secure the reservation of your rounds and serial numbers you will need to pay me before 30th October 2022.

If you areÔĽŅ¬†interested then please let me know in this thread or via PM and I will then reply with the payment information.

Payment will be via Banks Transfer or PayPal. We can accept other forms of payment too, just ask if you would like to find out more. 

Also, I welcome all feedback and any questions you might have about these rounds. 

Thanks for reading and thanks for supporting The Silver Forum!
