  1. One of the first things that we all add up as we're about to go travelling is - what’s it going to cost £$€ - and how will I pay for it? As an international traveller, by default you need to be an international currency trader! What is money? worth exploring further > Money, or ‘currency’ is basically cheap! It's cheap to produce! Most of the currency we use today is created by either digital key-stroke on a computer, it’s literally typed into existence! or, it’s printed by a few select private organisations around the world who are allowed to print currency using relatively cheap paper stock. On the other hand, we all know that physically creating wealth is often far from easy. Link those two aspects together and what it shows is that real creation of money and wealth is really the creation of something of real value, i.e. not necessarily currency ‘often referred to as money’, What’s more important as a traveller, is having an ‘exchange value’ or a barter. Throughout history, gold and silver were the real physical elements used for real monetary exchange. I can tell you from experience travelling around the World, people do prefer something real and physical and more valuable than paper currency, or ‘fiat money’ Things that you use, hard assets, real valuable items that other people will gain real value from. Costs of creating money Source 1 private banks get to create it, on behalf of governments. These private banks get to add the first profit margin onto the new pretend money they create, (print or digitise into existence) Generally modern money, digital or printed is created by issuing debt. You or I go get a loan from a private bank, they create the currency and thus create the first tier of ‘money cost’ or ‘interest’ All aspects of money creation bear a cost of creation, as well as a profit margin for handling. As consumers and travellers, we’re quite a way down the pecking order in terms of what we pay for obtaining our money! Big banks get the cheapest money, often for free! or even as at 2019 certain Countries are able to create money at zero or minus cost, as in one organisation will lend a foreign bank money, in Europe or Japan and in return they’ll actually receive less money back, when they come to cash their bond than they paid for the bond, (a lending instrument) That’s basically referred to as zero, or negative interest! These banks then get to gamble with the new money. Some of the newly printed currency gets lent to other smaller banks, at a slight profit and some gets lent to businesses and private individuals at a higher profit! Travellers money, often gets re-packaged into ‘money products’ like convenient plastic cards, foreign currency notes, travel cheques, which all tend to incur a cost of creation, a cost of re-sale plus a cost of exchange, or cashing out. As a World traveller, you’ll notice this when you come to buy your currency as well as when you come to re-cash it, or exchange it for some other form of currency, goods or services. You might not always notice it, but often those extra costs will be buried into an ‘exchange rate’. You might see signs like ‘zero commission’ but that doesn’t mean the money changer isn’t making his commission from the exchange rate! Imagine if there were ways to eliminate or vastly reduce the ways of obtaining and exchanging our travel money. Fortunately today, there’s lots of alternative ways of carrying foreign currency, or indeed our own internal national currency. All currencies incur different levels of costs and risks, some of which I will summarise below. Exchanging something real, of real value can be a great way to carry and transfer our wealth from place to place. If we think of wealth as the ability to create something of true value and purpose to another person. This might be things like, helping with jobs in return for somewhere to stay. Basically trading our own time and labour, for that of other peoples. This arks back to early days, when much of the exchange of trade and value was conducted at ground level, face to face, by barter. It’s the core of value and still something that can be used throughout the World today, which doesn’t incur any third party costs of profit margins from banks, money creators and currency lenders! There’s possibly a reason that Jesus chastised the money lenders in biblical times! Extra currency trivia Natural state of the World - is to save, be frugal, be cautious. It’s deflationary, so why are central banks hell bent on creating inflation AND telling us it's a problem if we don't have sufficient inflation! 2% inflation seems to be the central bank cartels holy grail. Technology generates efficiency which in turn saves money. High levels of debt - stutter growth and money circulation, as is the case today US$ money supply went up from $800 billion, to $4.2 trillion in 10 years, whilst the turn-over, or way that money circulates dropped so who got all of this freshly fiat created money? to be continued . . . . 2020 Meanwhile, owning your own precious metals, physical gold and silver means you're placing at least part of your own wealth and created value outside of the banking system, you are in effect your own central bank! and liable to no-one but yourself.
  2. GB's iconic piece of gold monetary history V the new lure for 999 gold bullion coins Whilst I'm not necessarily your typical gold bug, as admin of a SilverHub! like most precious metals investors I've still tried to include an appropriate balance of gold at any given time. General consensus is usually 5-10% weighting in gold, although at times of financial uncertainty there's plenty of advocates for more like 10-20%. Anyway, back to the point! > Sovereign V Britannia Gold Sovereign pros Internationally recognised and respected, probably the most iconic gold bullion coin still in monetary use. Highly collected by numismatics worldwide Scarcity, it's said that about 1% of the UK minted gold Sovereigns still exist in GB, the rest having been smelted or shipped away long ago - much of which are now smelted into the US's gold reserves at Fort Knox. Usually a reasonably low premium to spot gold, dealers often mark them up 5-6% for standard coins. Rarer versions, years, low mintage coins attract high premiums - whilst generally retaining that premium with numismatics. Small portable coin, still useful for trade and barter, being 0.2354 of an ounce gold. i.e. multiple the current spot price gold X 0.2354 = bullion / melt / trade value of a standard weight full Sovereign. at todays respectable £1105 / ounce gold spot, that equates to £260.11 being a baseline valuation of an average Sovereign. Most dealers will pay around 99-100% spot, i.e £257.51 - £260.11 as a trade buy. They'd then look to sell at around spot plus 6% being: £275.72 Indeed at time of writing a new 2019 gold Sovereign is retailing at £279-£280 inc delivery. For older more collectable coins I would estimate an average additional premium to be £15-£20 upwards, i.e. average grade Victoria Veil, Jubilee or Young Heads circa £295-£310.00 Having said that, nice graded, lustre, or scarcer mintage Jubilee Heads & Young Heads will readily fetch £350-£500 where numismatic value resides. Personal preference is for the older Young Heads Victoria, both St George Dragon & Shied backs. Gold Sovereign Cons Hard to find as many cons - being such an iconic coin! If any, it might become less desirable with a younger audience / collector? Gold Britannia Pros It's newer 999 purity gold, more popular in eastern markets, Asia etc, as well as now the norm for bullion coinage silver and gold, hence it's set to be the benchmark for holding and valuing physical gold bullion in legal tender coinage form. It's current, has variety of modern sizes and assigned legal tender values, making it CGT free, (as is the Sovereign at £1 legal tender) Good market liquidity, i.e. always demand, plenty of buyers/sellers and good availability of coinage. Gold Britannia Cons In current modern form it's really just a form of holding bullion and has little numismatic appeal. Although some of the older pre-999 versions are much scarcer and do hold decent premiums, like the 2001, 2003, 2005, 2007 - which are all especially nice designs and in relatedly scarcer supply. (that aspect's a Pro!!) * Let's here your views?

  11. How to reduce your silver coin stacking costs by opting to pay less VAT or even go VAT free to buy and sell your silver! Is it possible to buy silver in the UK without paying VAT? Short answer; hell yes! Business sellers generally charge VAT, but that doesn’t mean private stackers & silver coin buyers have to pay the extra tax! Private coin & silver bullion sellers do not have to charge VAT which means there’s an obvious advantage buying silver on the secondary market if you want to find the lowest cost per ounce of silver. Does secondary market mean lower grade second hand silver? Not at all, in fact given the investment nature of silver bullion, most silver holders tend to keep their silver safely stored away, just like new. It’s not like buying an electric car, watch or phone which are all going to gradually wear out and usually depreciate over time, whereas silver bullion is solid money, it’s a monetary store of value (amongst many other things) although it may show some signs of a natural tarnish or toning, this has no negative effects on it’s ability to perform it''s silver functions! Most investment grade silver bullion coins from the official World Mints are also supplied in air-tights, or protective plastic Mint tubes, which helps keep the coins well protected. Cut out the middlemen, trading directly between trusted sellers with reliable reputations supplying fair priced priced silver bullion coins will ultimately save you money. Should I buy more expensive scarcer coins? Silver coin premiums usually disappear over time, in the long run most value investors tend to price silver in relation to the spot market bullion price plus a reasonable coinage premium. Unless the coins are especially scarce and sought after it is unlikely you will benefit from buying more expensive standard 999 silver bullion varieties like coloured or obscure mint productions. i.e. the lower the initial premium on the bullion you pay, the higher your potential gain on resale. As a general rule you will make more money on silver bullion from buying coins as close to ‘bullion spot’ as possible, than simply hoping that a huge rally in silver prices will help you recover higher priced, taxed premium coins. There are ways to buy cheaper silver and if your aim is to build a profitable investment collection, it pays to reduce your costs per ounce by dealing with fellow silver sellers directly and learn how to confidently accumulate tax free silver directly from trusted sellers. SilverHubs enable you to deal person-to-person, tax and vat free, buying your silver coins at the lowest prices by eliminating un-necessary complexity and overheads. When you just want fair trade priced, cheap affordable silver bullion which you can use to store your purchasing power, investment value and have a trusted unit of internationally recognised currency with which you can freely trade, buying the lowest priced pure one ounce 999 silver coins are a good place to start. Buying pure 999 silver legal tender coins at the lowest premiums is a sure way to get more bullion for your buck! Growing in popularity is the trend to buy silver from smaller retailers who can trade under the VAT threshold, or indeed from coin dealers in the UK and EU who are using the margin scheme whereby they charge VAT at either a lower rate or just on the ‘profit margin’ thus giving you a lower purchase price for qualifying silver. Buying VAT free UK Royal Mint Britannia £2 silver bullion coins Whilst the Britannia silver bullion coin is produced or ‘Minted’ by the UK Royal Mint, it’s seldom the cheapest place to actually buy their own silver coins from! I guess much of the Mints extra premium comes from the sheer size of their minting business and the high overheads that are associated with the sales and administration of such a complex enterprise. The Royal Mint are also obliged to add a 20% added vat tax onto their silver selling prices. Whereas in contrast silver which has already had some degree of tax paid, or been imported from low tax Countries, can then be subsequently re-sold here in the UK at a lower price. Even new UK Britannia silver coins can often be found on the secondary market, wholesale distributors or via import agents at a substantially lower price than you would find from the UK Mint or the UK’s larger coin and bullion dealers. It's those ‘overheads’ taxation which often needs to be covered by these larger businesses charging higher premiums above spot for their physical coin sales) Taking delivery of physical silver bullion saves storage costs & counter-party liabilities There’s a saying in precious metals forums “If you don’t hold it, you don’t own it!” Whilst the sound of VAT free overseas stored silver coins and bars sounds appealing, it usually comes with some big potential pitfalls There’s a monthly storage fee If you ever want to physically get hold of your silver in times of financial turmoil, they’ll be extra shipping costs as well as any relevant vat and taxes to pay once you opt to take delivery. Most ‘allocated platforms’ also have fees or a buy/sell spread. When you want to sell your silver coins you can only re-sell back to the same dealer that's holding your silver - thus you do not have access to a free open market price, i.e. you're stuck with what-ever price this single buyer will offer, which is often just 'spot price' hence you loose any coinage premium you paid. The simplest, safest way to buy and hold silver bullion is to buy popular internationally recognised legal tender coins which are easy to re-sell, small units of easily tradable silver like Britannia, Krugerrands, Dragon bars, Maple-leafs, American Eagles, Kangaroo pure 9999 silver etc. Buy from a non registered or VAT free seller and take physical ownership at the lowest cost per Troy ounce silver you can find. Now you’ve bought your silver investment at a good price, how and where can you re-sell silver coins without incurring sellers fees and auction commissions? SilverHubs is a fair trading community for silver which enables silver stackers to trade together in a safe, trusted environment whereby everyone can benefit from sharing the silver resources and information to make the buying and selling process clear and fair for all. How the coin trade prices work to help both buyer and seller; Because sellers can advertise their silver coins and precious metals on the trade Hubs without any selling or listing fees it means they can offer their coins at a fairer price when compared to selling at a typical auction. Buyers benefit from getting direct person-to-person access with sellers, i.e. there are no middlemen or associated trading costs, no vat from private sellers, plus any trade sellers here will be competing to offer their best value products and special offers. Comparing to buying at dealers; Silver coin retailers would typically add a coin re-sale premium on top of the Mint production and resale premiums, on top of which 20% UK Vat is also added, (or any state-side taxes) unless it’s a secondary market Margin scheme sale, in which case the tax is paid on the profit margin but they'll still be some element of profit based tax. Sourcing reasonable quantities of silver bullion from UK margin scheme sellers can be a time consuming challenge, especially at times of spot bullion price appreciation when silver coin prices are rising, because there simply isn’t a lot of quality silver coins and bars coming onto the second hand market. Linking buyers directly with silver sellers on the secondary silver market is something the Hubs are actively engaged with to help silver investors find reputable sources for accumulating silver bullion at fair trade prices. Conclusion & summary for sourcing silver coins VAT free The first thing to think about when buying silver is; where am I going to sell it. Is the silver fairly priced compared to spot silver? general average bullion coins will usually range 10-30% over spot. If you can source UK silver coins around 25% over spot, it's usually a fair mid trade price which basically covers the costs of coin production and distribution. (as opposed to say 45-50% over spot which you may find at dealers who are adding on 20% vat) Dealing direct person-to-person fee free / 0% sellers fees with trusted feedback ranked sellers helps you find the best priced silver Further insights about investing in silver and precious metals Consider your own objectives - is it a mid or long term investment? precious metals investing is rarely profitable as a short term hold unless you’re really skilful or lucky! with you’re investment timing. Choosing when and how to scale is important, it’s worth being aware of international events, politics and monetary policies which might effect your timing and entry price for buying precious metals. Become well informed regarding your own tax situation in respect of any liability to pay capital gains tax on the sale of physical gold or silver. In the UK there is generally an annual amount of capital gains free income allowance, i.e. you won’t need to pay a tax on this specific amount of the capital gain you might make when you re-sell your precious metal holdings. In UK any coins which have a UK legal tender status are classed as CGT free, these include Britannia silver bullion coins with a face value of £2 pounds, Coat of Arms 1ounce silver bullion coin also with a legal tender value of two Pounds, various Queens Beast’s 2oz (Two Troy ounces of 9999 silver) which is £5 face value legal tender, as well as various other silver bullion coinage issued by the UK Royal Mint. Certain UK Gold bullion coins also have CGT free status, being legal tender; UK gold Sovereigns are £1, Britannia gold coins in various sizes are all legal tender as detailed below. * Individual Countries each have their own rules regarding declaring gains and paying capital gains tax when selling precious metals for a profit. i.e. In the United States, each State will have it’s own rules for taxation as well as the federal capital gains tax which applies to gains on most investment gains. Trading or barter of silver for third party goods or services could also have certain requirements to record any potential gain, if indeed you are making a profit by trading your precious metal. In theory, if you decide to exchange your gold or silver for good or services equal to the amount you paid for it, then there’s no gain! In practice, were you to trade 10 silver coins for say a $200 car repair it’s hard to see how anyone is going to account for that as a gain? Obviously trading a tonne of silver for a property may be a different entity! If anyone has specialised professional knowledge and research on using silver in payment and barter, we’d love to hear from you and feature more in-depth work on this topic. Another aspect with using any form of legal tender cash including US Dollars, US $1 silver Eagles, UKPounds etc - is that they are freely floating currencies and by their very nature are constantly going up or down in relative value and in reality who ever declares a capital gain on their actual earned currency notes, if for instance you take them overseas and exchange them at a relatively higher value than you paid or earned them at!? * final footnote - always seek professional tax accounting advice relevant to your own personal or business situation. * further notes on legal tender and how not all legal tender is created equally! (coin updating to articles) Summary note: the higher legal tender face value coins like £50 limited issue - actually contain no more silver bullion than the UK £2 Britannia, both being one Troy ounce of silver. Britannia Gold coins face values One ounce: £100 Half ounce: £50 Quarter ounce: £25 One-tenth ounce: £10 Britannia Silver coins face values One ounce: £2 Half ounce: £1 Quarter ounce: 50 pence One-tenth ounce: 25 pence UK Mint 2 ounce Queens Beasts silver bullion coins are £5 five pounds face value UK Mint 10 ounce Queens Beasts silver bullion coins are £10 ten pounds face value Coin facts and silver content American junk silver coins Roosevelt Dimes, Washington Quarters, Liberty Franklin and Kennedy Half-Dollars minted 1964 or earlier are .900 bullion containing 90% silver. The values of most average circulated USA silver coins minted in the 1920′s up to 1964 is derived primarily from the coins silver content. UK collector silver coins Pre 1920 coins are .925 Sterling silver and are always a popular choice with collectors and silver investors worldwide. British pre 1947 silver coins are .500 silver bullion which contains 50% silver. There are a number of advantages to investing in these older legal tender precious metal coins: they are often more collectible than general bullion coins and bars. Junk or scrap silver coins can often be purchased closer to spot price. Official World Mints solid .999 silver bullion coins with amongst the lowest premiums include 999 or 9999 silver bullion coins include; USA $1 American Eagle, UK £2 Britannia, Canada $1 MapleLeaf, Mexico Libertad, South Africa Krugerrand, Australia Kangaroo & Perth Mint 9999 silver Dragon bars, European minted Austria Vienne Philharmonic. These coins contain the purest grade 999 parts / 1000 of silver bullion Whilst there are many other pure 999 silver coins available from a vast array of official as well as private Mints, many are often sold are higher premiums to collectors, or in the case of private minted coins and bars, they often do not have quite as broad an appeal as the more recognised legal tender coins which generally benefit from better supply demand dynamics. i.e good prices and always in demand!

  15. We're often asked which type of silver bullion coins should I buy to get the best value silver ounces / pound?
