    Roman Republican silver denarii. I paid a bit over spot for them.

    I like the 1 kilo silver coins from Australia (Lunar and Kookaburras), and I have complete collections of the 5 ounce silver ATB's (America the Beautiful) quarters "hockey pucks", and slabbed proof ASE's (American Silver Eagles).

    I started out with war nickels back in 2011, and gradually got into buying higher grade modern coins. It's more fun, and the coins are a lot cleaner ; - ).

    I don't like bars, but I collect bullion from various countries as well as rounds that I find attractive. I do also enjoy some junk silver, just because I enjoy older coins.

    I love all the different silver coins [tpfivrf and the variations in size, proof vs. reverse proof, etc.

    That said...the premium on some of the graded foreign coins like the Libertad and Brittania are getting excessive. I've paid 100-200% premiums for a graded silver, just to have in a nice holder. But some of the Mexican and British coins are asking for 500-700% premiums !! :wideyed:

    Seems like you can get the raw ungraded for spot + 75% at worst. That may be the way to go...and buy a few and take the best ones to get graded by yourself or someone who has volume grading priviledges.

    How much silver in a Morgan ?

    My uncle calls me and wants to blow a few thousand on silver (!).

    Make sure they are legit morgans and if well worn, see if you can buy by weight rather then per piece.

    The 1981 USVI / A-Mark 'chunky bars' - they're only an ounce of .999 silver, but stackers seem to love them and will pay a premium to get some - I lucked out and was able to purchase many at a low price a few years ago ;)

    APMEX is pricey + sales tax - Monument Metals sells a bag of 1000 at 2.7% premium + NO sales tax - pretty good deal for a pile of old Mercs ;)

    Here in the UK bars are tough to get hold of due to premiums and tax, you are looking at £600 for a kilo from a named dealer.
    If I can buy anywhere near spot privately, I snap it up.
    My last addition to my bullion box is novelty bullion at its worst, if it was only an ounce I wouldn't have bought it.

    The case it is in is cheap & tacky just like the " coin " but I only paid a tiny amount over spot so all taxes and premiums avoided :D
