Exotic Ingots

Postby Silversaving » Thu Aug 30, 2018

Figure it's time to start a thread for this. I'd been toying with the idea of making my own poured silver for a few years now. I never got past the initial planning because I always figured I'd end up burning myself with liquid silver or smashing fingers trying to stamp the ingots. Thankfully I talked to David (of YPS fame) and he was willing to do all the hard work for me (and do it much better then I likely ever would have). So here we are. 2018 has seen my first few ideas turned into silver.

What's "different" about me/this is that I don't expect I'll ever make any money on this little side hobby. The first run (my 2018 1oz) I simply had a mintage of 69 made and delivered to me. Simply to enjoy (though since then a few persistent souls have managed to get some of those off me). Now my second design is out and that one will be sold just to benefit the trackchair fund we here at BS have going to help a wounded veteran. So basically I'm just spending money on stamps to see stuff I think up in my head be put on silver, and don't much care how much I lose doing it. I don't plan to do much selling....though I like the idea of selling some for good causes.

I thought before the years started going by, it might be best to start a record of all this. I'll hopefully keep on top of this and post pictures, dates, and mintages until either I get tired of it all or Mr. Yeager get's tired of me :lol:

(and I hope I parked this thread in the correct place)

Currently up on the YPS site is the latest. A 2.5oz (cause I like odd numbers) pour. These will be available until either the end of the year or until David gets sick of hosting them and they come down. $10 from every bar sold will go directly to the trackchair fund!

These can be purchased via the YPS site here: https://yeagerspouredsilver.com/product/2-5-oz-2018-exotic-ingots-bar-wftw-trackchair-project-fundraiser/

2019 has been flying by. I had the stamp made in February but just recently got around to sending it to David to make me 50 of this years design. It's not classy...but neither am I :lol:

Like I mentioned above, give David a PM/call. I don't believe he's going to put them up on the site (though I don't care either way), but he's willing to make a few more for you folks that really want one.
