  1. Here's where we can discuss British silver Hallmarking, share photos and examples of silver marks to help us identify and authenticate collectable, historical and treasured silver pieces. Introduction and overview of silver Hallmarking You can add posts and topics with more details, silver items, questions, pieces you're trying to identify or silverware you own which has good examples of silver marks. Edward I first decreed that all silver must be tested before it departed the hands of workers, thus setting the foundation for Sterling silver marking in 1300 A.D. the Leopard Head and Sterling silver .925 to be the accepted silver standard, the same as used in coinage. From there we have 720 years of silver history, that's a lot of fabulous silver craftsmanship to discover in 2020! Goldsmith Hall London has the first assay responsibilities, hence the advent of the phrase 'Hall marking' Hallmarking assay offices later included Birmingham and Sheffield situated conveniently for the world renowned silver smith and jewellery quarters of England as well as Edinburgh Scotland and Dublin Ireland. Silver marks will typically include a mark to depict; date, maker, purity & assay office. We're used to seeing the Lion passant which typically signifies Sterling silver. Unusually in 1696 the standard for silver was raised and in effect silverware as valued by the UK Pound became more appreciated! as silver content increased to .958 parts per 1000 known as Britannia silver, depicted by a lions head as well as the figure of Britannia. The use of .925 silver did of course survive and is still in common use for jewellery throughout the world today. It is generally accepted that most silverware will be of .925 Sterling Silver, the same purity of silver used for UK coinage up until 1920 when it can be said that Britain significantly devalued the UK Pound Sterling by reducing the purity of silver from .925 down to .500 in British monetary coinage. Both Sterling .925 and Britannia .958 can be found in artisan silver pieces, with Britannia also used in silver coinage. Today there's an evolving desire for an even higher purity of .999 silver, especially for investment purposes in silver bullion coins and bars. The 'other metal' used in silverware production is generally copper, hence Sterling silver will typically contain 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper to give it extra durability,
  2. What's your thoughts on this years latest Britannia? not much change to the design hey! shame we don't get some slight design variations nowadays?

  3. 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?

  8. Whilst the classified Hubs populate with sellers, if there is anything you would like to buy from our own promotional silver stock, you can order by either; A/ Contact us form or pm - message to let us know what you're looking to buy & we will confirm prices & delivery options direct with you or B/ Visit our approved COINSUK secure e-commerce CoinsUK store and buy online Ultimately the Silver trade Hubs will by their very nature of member-to-member trading, start to undercut even our own low trade prices, since they'll be private sellers who wish to sell at a fair price, which will be far better than selling to a trade buyer for silver spot price. Both options are VAT free & provide insured tracked Special delivery to UK & EU Buyers benefit since the Silver Members who are selling here won't be paying any sales % fees and can therefore sell at a fairer price. Remember it's important to build your trust and reputation by being an active part of the trade hubs community, share your opinions and feel free to post any questions and topics in the free silver forums - that way we get to know more about you and your silver hubs reputation will grow, enabling more members to have confidence dealing with you directly at the best prices.
  9. We're often asked which type of silver bullion coins should I buy to get the best value silver ounces / pound? Generally speaking there's an old adage that 'premium always disappears' when it comes to bullion Buy quality, Mint recognised silver coins at the lowest premium you can find Any official Mint pure .999 silver bullion coins, ideally tax/vat free to get the best price Official Mint silver coins which are legal tender i.e. have a face value in their country of origin which gives them authenticity Added re-sale appeal of lower mintage coinage, but don't overpay the premium to get it, unless you're collecting UK Britannia £2 silver .999 bullion are always popular with UK silver buyers, CGT free - but again be weary of overpaying premiums especially if making gains of around £10k + isn't go to be a real issue for you, it's often as well to look at the more interesting, collectable World Mint coins, or scarcer limited mintage silver, if the price per ounce is attractive. Scrap silver, pre-1920 Sterling silver coinage is .925 silver and always highly desired by both silver stackers and numismatic coin collectors Silver investment bullion coins we like + include in our trade priced Hub includes: UK £2 Britannia .999 silver from 2013-2020 SA Mint silver Krugerrand bullion 2017 (first year) onwards (investment priced bullion was from 2018) Perth Mint 1ounce .9999 silver rectangle Dragon bullion bars, has limited mintage and new design each year Canadian Maple-Leaf 9999 silver, good World renowned bullion coin, added security features make it hard to forge USA American 1 ounce silver Eagle, World recognised, low premium in USA but often higher priced in UK/EU Pert Mint 1ounce pure 9999 silver Kangaroo bullion coin, often amongst the lowest premium bullion coin, good value All of these silver bullion coins are usually available from our silver classifieds or in the respective regional silver trading hubs, but if you can't find what you're looking for, message us and we will almost certainly know of approved, verified sellers who are looking to sell at good prices, or indeed physical stock on the Silver sales hubs.
  10. 1997-2012 The Britannia 958 silver coins - minted in lower numbers, these silver coins do still contain a full one Troy ounce of silver, 31.1grams Who's collecting? and how's the market for these older Britannia? some of the scarcer years are becoming especially hard to find in good grades; 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 - all quite low mintage years or scarcer years A nice way to collect silver, all different designs - something we miss from the current 999 bullion Britannia! Interested to hear who's interested in these scarcer UK 958 silver Britannia? & nice to see buys & wanted adverts in the UK coin sales Hubs which should become a useful resource for collectors of the original UK Britannia silver.
