  1. I appreciate this, but there's something about a sealed tube that I like; I love tubes of 1/4 silver Noah's! I recognise that the maples are the better investment; from being a better price, being more sought after and ending up in better condition. I like the fact that a sealed tube would be compact
  2. So, I'm looking to buy an amount of bullion that looks complete, With this in mind, I've been looking to buy 20x 1/10 Philharmonikers as I like the idea of owning a tube, But, goldline are doing 1/10 gold maples for a bit cheaper, but these come in crummy sealed packets, Whats my best chance at owning a nice shiny tube of gold coins?
  3. The general population saving isn't beneficial for the economy; people spending money on things they don't need is. And in this sense, VAT on whatever they can justify is their way of the economy benefiting from people buying gold.
  4. It's just the film on the front? That isn't the same as open,and I'd be okay with it
  5. It's quite a markup, 1/10s at HGM don't usually have a +10% premium
  6. I was in from day 1; unfortunately not by any significant amout
  7. I agree, and due to the small premium on second hand gold, you might be able to justify making small but more frequent orders. Silver looks good, but it is far more expensive (margin wise)
  8. Buying gold at 35% over spot price is never good advice. Would you pay £1350 for the one ounce? How long will you have to wait to recover the premium?
  9. How much does the coin weigh? I dislike many of the RM coins, they are just way overpriced, usually overminted, and definitely not worth the value stamped on them. That being said, it is a nice coin. I think the silver would be worth more in its 'as found' condition
  10. eBid is horrible, full of historical listings linked to sellers that are now inactive. whatever you do, do not pay for a sellers account
  11. Whilst it's a good deal, you can get 10No silver coins from goldsilber delivered for the same price...
  12. Shame about gold.de, a lot don't ship outside of germany
  13. I got 2 x 1/10 gold maples from HGM for £94 apiece, there were 5, but must of gone within the hour of seeing
  14. Good spot; it's obviously been a while since I sold anything in ebay, despite the thread I actually dislike ebay! Thats just reason enough to know no gold on ebay is real! but back to my point, just be aware of the high number of fake Perth mints currently on the market, according to the coin community there's a recent batch that are very similar to the real thing
  15. Not sure I agree with your math, ebay fees are capped at £40, which is near enough 5% of current spot price for one ounce, therefore, if I buy at 1% over spot, then the seller should get 95-96% of spot (inc PayPal fees etc), which is what some U.K. Dealers will pay, Not quite the 14% hit you discussed, Anyway, you're lucky, us Brit's would kill for the Apmex deals you can get!
