    Hi all,

    Looks like there are a few Aussies here. Are many of you in Sydney? I didn't even know there were online communities dedicated to silver until I discovered /r/silverbugs on Reddit, and from there found this forum and realised collecting silver is quite popular! :)

    I've been collecting silver coins on and off for a few years. Nothing serious. I have been trying to accumulate coins of every size. The biggest I have so far is a 1kg Koala. I drool over the 10 kilo Perth Mint coin but the premium is ridiculous (at least for me). If the silver price ever crashes substantially, or I find someone willing to sell one with a minimal premium, I'm going to jump on it. Dreams :)

    Here in Sydney, I have purchased from KJC and occasionally ABC. Are there any other ways to buy silver? Do people meet up to trade?

    Cheers,
    Pete.

    Another Redditor, welcome :)

    Keep an eye out here- http://forums.silverstackers.com/forum-20-meetings-events.html there's also weekly meets in the CBD too. Trades can be done at the meets, usually a bit cheaper than buying from the dealers.

    Remember the 10kg dragon premium was $3k more than 10 of the 1kg's, probably more now though.

    Wow, my strategy has changed allot since then. I still have some kilo coins but have switched mainly to generic kilo bars and some 1966 50s, and now have Libertads and Zombucks for fun.

    So no 10kg coin?
    If the Aztec coins came in 10Kg i dont think i would be able to pass on it even with the premium

    I'd still go for a few 10 or 15 kg silver bars if I suddenly had a huge excess of cash. At least you can chuck those around without fear of destroying their value.
