  1. eBay Shipping Overcharged

    I have the same problems with shipping costs from the USA to Europe(Netherlands), for one and the same coin the costs for registered shipping vary from $12 to $35. I'm ok with the $12 even $20 sounds reasonable, but when I ask a seller why the charge $35 for standard registered shipping, the just tell me that's what it will cost. Even when I tell them that I normally pay around $15 for the service. Also MCM is way to expensive with there shipping cost, because the send every coin with FedEx express. For a $500 coin that's s fine with me, but if I want to buy a MS70 2017 panda for $45 i'm not going to pay $39 shipping costs!!! Do other forum members have the same problem with MCM, because sometimes the have great deals. But if you ad the shipping costs, the are way to expensive for coins less then $150.

  3. for sale For Sale 2016 China Panda Bi-metallic NGC PR70

    I think now is not a good time to sell this coin, because not many people know what it is. Just wait 10 years, then I think it will be a winner!!!
  4. Today I bought.....

    HyHy, you can try this dealer in Amsterdam: http://www.theopeters.com/munten/dukaten/enkele-gouden-dukaten/gouden-dukaat-2017 . His website is in Dutch, but the owner speaks English.
  5. 3 years ago I bought a graded 1oz 2014 proof Britannia, but it came without the original box and coa. Just let me know if you have a spare box and coa for this 2014 coin, you would make my day!!!
  6. Collecting/ stacking or investing

    I'm a collector/ investor!! The collecting part is the most important bit as I only buy coins that I like. So i'm not buying many bullion coins, and if I do it's only one of each design. From an investment point of view one collector/ dealer tolt me, that I have to buy the best quality coin that I can afford (mainly for pre 1950 coins). Not only does a MS65 coin look better then a AU55, the value of a MS65 coin is most likely to go up faster than the AU55. There for I only buy coins that will get at least an MS64 ( even coins from 1750) at NGC/PCGS. I do also collect panda coins, and I always try to get an MS/PF70 for the new coins that come out. For the older panda's MS69 is the minimum grade I will buy, this is also from an investment point of view. But I be leave that most collector are also investors!!!

  10. Nanjing Panda 2017

    I can see two of them, a large one behind his head(mum) and a small one(baby) on the right next to his arm
  11. The reason the sold out is that the have a great marketing department, and I think most of them went to buyers outside the Netherlands who taught it was a legal tender coin. On the Dutch coin forum nobody was really keen on this medal, and I did not here from anybody who bought it. I'm happy for the Dutch Mint that the did sell all of them, because the did have a lot of problems the last few years. Mintage numbers for most coins went down a lot, because the did get to expensive(especially the gold €10 coins). Most of those coins you can buy at local actions for 50% of the retail price only two years later, mainly because the designs are crap. The design of this medal is ok, but I rader buy an 400 year old original lion dollar!!
  12. I did not buy this item, because it is just a medal not a legal tender coin. Also it's not a serie, just one issue(gold and silver). I do not be leave this will be a popular item for collectors within the Netherlands, not many people here in the Netherlands collect medals from the Royal Dutch mint. I think the 2017 200 year anniversary gold ducat will be a much more interesting item, as its still a legal tender coin!!
  13. The Silver Forum Branded Investment Bars!

    These look great, I would like to have number 10 if possible!
