    As the title says...

    I have alittle Gold & Silver stack (slowly building it up over the next 25-30yrs)

    Would it be worthwhile to stack alittle of the other metals as well re' diversification & hedging ?

    Cheers, HAPPY STACKING :)

    I have about the same timeframe for stacking as you and I have about 75% silver, 20% gold and the rest in Platinum and Palladium. There is no harm in getting a bit of it just in case, 25 years is a long time for things to happen.

    I'm currently 100% silver but have been 100% gold in the past. My PM allocation is GSR dependent until I get older.

    Very generous haha.

    Plan to make it a more a 70% silver/30% gold eventually or would a 40% silver/60% gold be a best ratio ?

    Cheers, HAPPY STACKING :)

    Yes that was generous of me to do that! :) It is actually way under 1% but anyway.

    Actually I started my stack with a one ounce gold coin, then I realized how undervalued silver was compared to gold and that it must go up multiples of times to what gold goes up, so from then on I only been stacking silver. (I do not include counting all the gold and silver jellewrly items I bought off members here = for barter items only in a shtf)

    I'm now about 50% gold and 50% silver. Was previously only 40% gold before October until I saw how beautiful QB gold coins were, and loaded up 1 oz QB dragons at just $1300. They have since appreciated significantly and are my favourite so far.

    I'm 60% Gold, 35% Silver and 5% Copper in the form of cash.
    My copper stack is a massive drum full of Aus 1c and 2c coins all bought at face value which my scrap dealer pays scrap value for (double face value). The back up plan there is the bank also accepts them for what I paid for them.
    I figured copper could be used as a barter currency like the days of old.

    Wasnt there a trader in the US who stored a million dollars worth of coins betting on melt value being worth more than face value? Downside floor but with upside potential!

    There's a dealer in Singapore, Silver bullion that sells nickel (metal) in 2 ton bags. The price has fallen quite a bit since the beginning of last year.

    It's actually not that expensive, only US$22k for a 2 ton bag.

    Mostly silver, than gold. Bought a few ounces of Paladium around $400AUD years ago, then some more around $900AUD. Very happy with Paladium. Always thought it would overtake Platinum and Gold. Have some Platinum when it first went under gold price. Platinum only really been going sideways, thought it would go neck and neck with PD. Not that impressed, but got some as I didn’t have any. I tried some Rhodium when Baird and Co released them. To be honest thought they were crap, even called up to complain, told the Aussie bullion place that they must have dropped them as the look so rough. Have only started looking at pm prices around Xmas for first time in a couple of years and was well impressed with Rhodium and Pallidium.

    Didn’t expect much from Gold and Silver as the Dow has gone up so much. Man, it shouldn’t be over 20,000. Let alone 24,000.

    GSR I think will favour silver at the moment. That’s what I will be adding. Silver shouldn’t do anything crazy, just more of a percentage gain than gold. But then again
    How long will the manipulation last?

    Copper always good when you get it for free. I wouldn’t buy it now. Bought a bag of pennies for the novelty. Prob/maybe would buy our old 1c/2c if face value
    Have been picking up high voltage, low voltage cut cables on site. They are about 70% lead, 20% copper and 10% waste. Earth cables are good (7 x 2mm wire), easily stripped.

    Old CRT TVs also a lot of copper. Easy to take, hard to get rid of empty shell of tv.
    Almost more of a headache than value.

    I say, stack it all. Get some nice pieces every now and then. Beauty in the eye of the beholder, so a premium worth it if you love it.
