Very good. I actually learnt new stuffs from your writing.
Awesome post mate. Very informative and helpful to everyone.
Hi Everyone, Im a newbie/Noob.
My friend has advised me to invest into Sure silver and not sports trading cards.
I have yet to buy anything, I was interested in aquiring a troy ounce bullion.
Is that where I shold start? or invest into a 10oz bar from perth mint?
Any advice and help is greatly apprecited!
I suggest you start by attending any local Silver Stacker meet ups in your city. You can usually buy amongst the group. The next alternative is to buy from a local bullion dealer to avoid postage and insurance. You are better off starting with a 10oz bar or possibly a roll of 20 or 25 1oz coins as this way you get a price break.
Thank you very much, Im located in the Shoalhaven NSW, South Coast of Australia, is there anything around me? or mainly capital cities?

Thank you, This was very informative and easy to understand.
Great post! I've started with predecimal mainly because you can get it for spot and I like all the history attached to it!
I am pretty flexible when I buy silver. I love a bargain but they are harder to find now. Buying is the easiest part. It is the selling strategy that you need to get comfortable with. Whether you flip or hold long term, I believe that there are lessons to be learnt from the previous silver spike of the 70’s. Identifying a parabolic blow off is the key to maximising returns if you hold long term. If you buy unallocated bars through ABC Bullion, for example, you can off load at any time for a fee. If you buy thousands of pre-decimals and rounds, you can sell at a small premium but you will be dealing with the likes of EBay and cash transactions of significant amounts. This of course will come with risks unless you have access to local dealer that you have built up a relationship with. Stackers is another place to sell keeping in mind that the numbers of members will swell as silver price moves up and some of them will be dodgy as they will smell opportunity.
Alternatively you can invest in proxy silver via Silver Lakes Resources, for example, on the Stockmarket.
Just make sure you have a plan.
If you were to go Unallocated, then Perth Mint is worth a look. Government guarantee and buying and selling fees of 1% ( and reducing with higher transaction amounts), compared to 8+% with others.
just like to say thanks to all that posted in here learned allot even just from this one thread cant wait to dive in more.
