The Libertad Bug has bitten me very hard!! As a Libertad person, I'm in it for both the stacking and the collecting angles. I really love the silver proof libertads. They have such low mintages and they're stunning. These coins could be worth a fortune in the next 10-20 years.

I also stack ASE, and generally buy the ASE annual proof. I don't stack ASE as much as I would like simply because the premiums are ridiculous.

100% collector.
I never buy a "tube" of anything but as crazyglue does, I like to put series together.

ASE's, Kooks, Libertads, Koalas, Kangaroos, Wildlife, Elephants, Lunars,
Turtles, Noah's Arks, Arc Angels and many more.

I also have a few series of "rounds" I like and keep up to date.

Just one of each per series.

A true "stacker" would have a coronary over what I have spent on a single ounce of Ag.

I used to collect too, but have shifted to stacking. In the past I have cruised eBay looking for different bullion coins, from different nations and with different dates. Collecting has blown my spread out of proportion. I plan to buy as cheap as possible through quantity.

I'm a collector, but I'll pick up some rounds, especially anything with a classic design. Silver is not for investing for me. There is too much bulk with any amount of money I would consider investing. If I were going to invest in precious metals, it would be gold. $25K of gold fits in the palm of your hand in a polyethylene tube.
The collection is in your mind. Dispose of your albums and free your mind from the tyranny of holes.

I buy bullion because as a kid, I always kept Buffalo nickels that I would get in change. I love the design, so I buy Buffalo Gold. It's sometimes a better investment than ETF's. I bought several Buffaloes of all denominations in 2008, and still have them, proof and bullion. You just don't make money like that on ETF's. Plus, I don't believe that the gold in storage nearly covers the stocks that they have sold. They have their own little FED, and with our government's blessing.

I wouldn't buy metals to sell them as is. That's a mighty bad gamble in my estimation. Anyone doing it this way should not cry when it backfires.

I go day to day buying pure and selling alloyed at a markup as an industrial service. I did get lucky stacking at around 2010 when I caught wind of the whole stacking arguments and I sold a bit near the top. $40 was good enough for me, I'm not greedy, that was a bubbly price even back in 2012. It wasn't a heavy investment but it did put a dent in my college tuition and put me in a world where I can profit daily manufacturing precious materials.

Collecting bullion is to set yourself up for heartache down the road. As long as milk spots are a future risk, I'll just stick to stacking.

I was into collecting anything cheap silver first. Then, it was bars, I wanted 10 oz. bars but anything different was fine until the Panda bug hit, then when that was breaking the bank I switched to just accumulation until I met a 1000 oz. goal of silver, finished that goal up with 200 oz. of walker halves, from here I'm going to try to stick to gold, as I am not renting another SDB.
