  1. Bullionbilly liked a post in a topic by BackyardBullion in Should I get the 1/4 proof gold Queens Beast?   
    I have been watching this thread closely as I really value the opinions of this great community and it helps me (I think!) make a more informed decision on all of my investments and purchases. 
    I have decided to pull the trigger and get one of these bad boys. 
    My reasoning for both getting and not getting have been discussed here already but basically it comes down to a gamble - and to be honest life is a gamble! My thoughts are that it is a popular series, this design is awesome and it is low (although not extremely) low mintage. 
    I also figure, worst case scenario I have a lovely coin to enjoy, and all I would have to do is wait for gold to be at £1,800 per oz to get my money back on the value of the gold only, nevermind the numismatic and proof value bonuses. £1,800 per oz might seem like a pipe dream, but in 20 years time it will be that with inflation alone. Yes I am aware real money terms I lose out but I am a numbers man and as long as I enjoy the ride and am not losing everything then it is all good!
    Same goes for the 1 oz silver proof too, picked on up as well! 
    If you are going to get one use topcashback for 2.1 % on gold (£9.55 off!) and if you use the code  BND103  you will get a free £20 coin (1/2 oz free 999 silver!) I also used my dad as a friend refferal on topcashback to get £15 referral so all in all I (my family) get nearly £45 off.
    So a 1/4 Proof QB can actually be worth it at £410!?

  4. Niels87 liked a post in a topic by BackyardBullion in Some tips on packaging pls   
    I use old cardboard from other deliveries (like amazon) and make a 2 sided package to go over the coin. It is then wrapped in packing paper. No need for a jiffy bag and as the cardboard is usually nice and thick no chance of seeing/feeling what is inside. No need to buy expensive jiffy bags!
    Bigger items or heavier items I would buy some premade boxes. I bought small parcel sized ones in bulk from Amazon. Worked out about 25p per box which is a lot less than the £2 the local post office charges!
    I always send recorded delivery unless it is a very small value coin (i.e. less than £5).

    Hi all - I dont mean to spam this so if any of the moderators want to move it to the "youtube video section" I would be more than happy. 
    But
    I have just done a big unboxing of an order of shot from www.europeanmint.com so if anyone was curious as to my experience please take a look and share around. 
    Overall great service but the giant bag of shot did split all over my table! Maybe my fault, maybe their fault. I got everything I ordered though so none was lost :-)
     
     
  12. Bullionbilly liked a post in a topic by BackyardBullion in A Combined Order from Goldsilver.be   
    Have had one taker so far - just to let you all know hoe it would work...
    You would pay for the % of the shipping as per your % of the total order. I am ordering about £450 so if you tagged along with £20 order you pay about 5% of the €18 shipping (75p)! Then onwards postage to you - £1.85 2nd signed or £2.30 signed if over 100g 
    Great way to pick up a few bits if anyone is interested.
    Im not asking for any tips or commission. All I would ask is to include them in the unboxing video I would make when the parcel arrives!

    PM me for details!

  17. Bullionbilly liked a post in a topic by BackyardBullion in 1/4 oz gold queens beast   
    I am about to order a bunch of things from goldsilver.be including 1/4 oz queens beasts so if you are interested in tagging along on the order it would reduce international shipping costs!
    They would set you back about £294 - £300 (depending on exchange rate and your potential share of postage) which is about as good a price as you are going to get for a new one. Unless someone has a less than perfect one to sell on of course!
    PM me if you want to get more info.

    I have posted this a few times when Milk Spotting comes up - quick and easy fix!
    As an FYI if you were interested in sending me some milky coins I would be more than happy to melt them down into some nice hand poured bars for you?

    Hello everyone!

    I am probably going to do an order of QB Dragons (1/4 oz gold & 2 oz Silver) from GoldSilver.be
    If anyone wants to join in with the order to save on postage (you dont have to buy QB's!!!) then PM me and we can discuss the particulars (i.e. postage share, onwards postage etc.) 
    I would imagine the package would be shipped in early April as that is what GS.be advises for their QB Dragons. 
    Thanks
    BYB!
