๐Ÿ’ฐ How Did You Get Into Gold/Silver Stacking ? ๐Ÿ’ฐ

in #hive-167922 โ€ข 3 months ago

So, @thisismylife made this call to action post the other day asking the community the question below:

Oooff, she even made the question in the form of a picture which saves me the trouble of finding a thumbnail pic for my post, lel ๐Ÿ˜‚

@silversaver888, @bitcoinman, @saffisara, @trumpman, you are all invited as well..

I even got a personal invitation, so I can't refuse, can I?

So what got me into silver stacking?

I guess I always had an inclination for precious metals...I mean who doesn't love some shiny?

But it wasn't until I got introduced to the #silvergoldstackers community about three years ago that I got the stackitis bug.

Coincidentally, I was also looking for a new fun hobby or whatever to post something truly original here on hive, instead of the usual boring shit most peeps do ( I am guilty of that too) like rehashing the same old crypto news again and again.

Back then I was a real pleb when it came to silver, I just had 3 or 4 silver coins I had from an old family coin jar.

So I bought my first silver coins, and then some more. And then some more.

And before I knew it I was hooked, looking for deals, auctions to snipe, new places to buy etc etc.

As to what I stack... Generally I am a cheap fuck so I try to close deals as close to spot as possible. This is why I am stacking so many German commemorative coins, they are by far the cheapest silver I can find in my little corner of the world. And those eagles are just sexy. But over the course of the years I have scored all kinds of cool pieces from all countries ^_^

The greatest part though about this hobby is that the #silvergoldstackers community is probably one of few real communities here on hive.. Things like the annual secret Santa or the annual monster ruffle, you won't see anywhere else. Plus I can't even remember all the random gifts I have sent or received via mail with peeps here. It's a small but vibrant community, something hive largely lacks.

Anyways that's pretty much how I started stacking and as long as I am financially ok, will continue to do so. I don't have any plans to sell anytime soon, unless silver really moons for whatever reason, then maybe I'll buy myself something fancy like a harley. But it's there somewhere hidden... A personal emergency atm for a rainy day or something my kids will inherit only to blow on hookers and cocaine. And slowly but gradually it gets bigger. Funny how I barely had an oz.. I am probably over 200 oz by now ! :)

Ok @thisismylife I think I answered your question.

Now excuse me, I have a new parcel to go and take and open. And I think it's gonna be an epic one! But that's a post for tomorrow! ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ˜

Stack on!

hahaha I was thinking about posting something about crypto and now you just got me down xD

Unfortunately, the system is broken and promotes this behavior. We all have sinned

Who doesn't like shiny? Cracked me up, but that's the reality.
I believe the intrinsic value of these precious metals also contributes to the lure to stack em up. Though I haven't gotten to stage yet but eventually I will also like to have collections eventually. I can already imagine the sense of fulfillment it brings. Hehehe.

Reblogged Sir!

You can always start small with constitutional silver here and there... But be worned... It's addicting!

!DHEDGE

Thanks! Was feeling "froggy" thought you were going to ask me about getting involved in silver. Well in short started collecting coins wen I was little. This led to all sorts of collectibles and sum silver probably starting with a silver quarter found along my way as I don't remember. Years of fun hunting silver although don't have like I used to having become a nomadic little cartoon frog.

Will if your still have any post it #silvergoldstackers we are a fun bunch!!

Thank you! Will do sometimes!

My Grandfather and I were very close. As I was still youthful (10 years old) and he was on in age I would often run most of the errands for him. He always made sure that I knew to "B.B.T.C" (Bring Back the Change"). Once, when giving him his coinage I told him that something sounded off in there. He handed me a 1964 US quarter and told me "64 or before". First time he had ever let me keep the change. Been stacking since that day.

Smart grandfather! Come post your silver at #silvergoldstackers fren!

Well said old man!

So, over 200 oz because you were looking for a subject to blog about. I can see where you're coming from. And yeah, if you can do it, it's an easy way to have just another blog. You lazy Greek!

๐Ÿ˜‰

200, Well done! @trumpman

+20 today!

Yeah, got to say I'm not stacking it, but bought nice amount of it years ago, just because I knew that silver and gold always keep up with currencies losing their value. So in the end, you can keep your buying power. That was silver/gold's mission for over 5000 years

Exactly. You still hold ?

Yeah, still. Maybe I sell if we get to moment like in 2011. You?

Great story! It's always interesting to hear how people got started.

Father in law bought a good deal of gold many years ago. Mother in law sold it at a difficult moment to support her family and we are now building it up again for our infant daughter. Bought ourselves a small safe as we live in a less stable country.

Ohhh nice! Maybe share some of your shiny at #silvergoldstackers !

I think it's a pretty good reason to get involved and I don't blame you for being cheap and getting the cheapest. Silver is silver in the end.

Exactly! But I'd love to have some of those sexy bullions with the stupid high premiums ๐ŸŒ

PIZZA!

Complete lack of faith in the current system and felt I needed something tangible to hold.

I hope the system holds. I don't see it happening.

Me either, that's why I have also diversified into a homestead farm and bullets... Brass and lead are just as precious as silver and gold in my book, lol.

Haha .. well they will always be useful, even if it's for fun!

Oh yeah, they are fun too, ๐Ÿ˜‚
