Poppy Appeal Charity Raffle 2018

In 2017 Silver Forum members raised £500 for the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal by having a Charity Raffle. This year it is back and I hope we can blow that £500 out the water!

Here is more about the British Legion and what they do.



And their 2018 launch video.


For a full and updated list of prizes make sure to check out this tread on The Silver Forum.


Last year the final mintage numbers of the 1 oz & 100g Silver forum bars (and many more member donated prizes) were up for grabs.

So, this year I am going to donate the full cost of the serial number #200 (1 oz Forum Bars), #150 (100g Forum Bars) and #50 (3 oz Rounds) to get us started.

In addition to those three prizes we also have #1 of 25 of the 250g Silver Forum Bars, which has been sponsored by a forum member – who I have not asked if they want to be named, but if that person reads this feel free to give yourself a very well deserved shoutout and pat on the back!

Feel free to donate a prize to the pot too – donating a prize does not get you an entry though – you will still need to buy a ticket! But the more prizes there are the more chance there is of winning and the more appealing it gets for people to chip in £5 to win some awesome prizes.

Please note that if you donate a prize then you will be required to send it to the winner of that prize and be responsibly for all postage costs (this might include sending items internationally).


Entries are £5 per ticket with no limit on the number of entries per person.

Please send your entries via PayPal F&F to info@backyardbullion.com

or via Banks Transfer to:

Account No: 76626253

Sort Code: 51-70-06


Closing date will be Saturday 10th November @ 12pm UK time. The draw will happen shortly after and I will upload a video of the results on Sunday 11th November at 1pm.

The draw will be made using https://www.random.org/

Maximum of 1 prize per person, if your number and name are drawn more than once you win the first prize only and we re-draw subsequent duplication’s.

For prizes donated by forum members I will tag you both in the announcement and you can link up to arrange delivery of the prizes.

Otherwise I will send out the prizes in the week commencing 12th November with the exception of the 3 oz round which will have to wait until wk commencing 10th December (as they are not yet made!)

So, dig deep guys, donate prizes, let’s make this HUGE!!!
