Digme's right. The ratio between the amount of PMs sold on the likes of SLV or GLD and the amount they're actually backed with is frightening. Shocking leverage, because they don't expect people to take delivery.
I'd be concerned about a decoupling of the ETF paper prices and the price of physical in forthcoming months, especially if COMEX, as is possible, don't cover all the silver shorts this month with actual metal.

Thanks Jim.

What are the tax issues if you bring them back to Ireland in luggage / hand luggage?

Is it up to you to declare them?

You can also get them tax free in Norway btw.
