Most people begin with coin shops.

I hear that it is more difficult to buy silver in your neck of the woods than here in the states. But one of the reasons I'm hearing that we are having a small bar (under 100 ounces) physical silver shortage in the U.S.A. is because of high demand for it overseas.

Good luck to you and let us know how you are doing.

How much does that 18.99 for a one ounce ASE come to in American dollars?

Well I think I've just worked out how to finance a trip to Europe. Buy a few hundred eagles, take them with me, sell them. Holiday paid for. Come back, replace inventory, take profits.

Oooh. And further to that, thanks to the low mint value on the coins, I can avoid declaring them to customs LEGALLY. Yay, me. :)

I don't live in Ireland but I have the same problem, in the EU and no coin shops at all in my country that deal with silver (just gold).

I bought a few at http://www.coininvestdirect.com/ which is the cheapest I found delivering to my home town.

There is still a bit of a premium in most coins (started in August) but recently it has come off a bit and the Philarmonikers and the Mexican Libertad are cheap. For bars I have a local dealer which gets better prices (no premium at all).

Hi,

Is there any cause for concern for the Irish/Uk investor now that gold.ie and goldassets.co.uk seem to be offline. Places for purchase are limited enough as it is here.

I had never heard of either of those, so I cannot comment. However Baird, CoinInvest and Chard are online as normal.

Bullion in Europe is ridiculously expensive to obtain. Instead I buy scrap pre-1947 British 50% silver coins. They are the cheapest way to buy easily trade-able silver. In Ireland I think your coins from the same period are 75% silver. Ask your local coindealer or use ebay.
