  1. I would choose the Dragon...but I really do like them all!
  2. I am hoping to purchase 3 of BYB's 1oz 2017 Silver Forum bars. Please let me know if you any for sale. I am located in the United States, but am willing to cover the cost of international postage. Thanks!
  3. Today I Received

    I don't know the story behind these or if they were ever sold directly by the Royal Mint, but mine came from JM Bullion. At just over $18 per oz I thought I would buy a few as I liked the design. https://www.jmbullion.com/1-oz-royal-mint-refinery-silver-round/
  4. Today I Received

    My first silver rounds...until now all of my silver has been in the form of coins or bars.
  5. Queens Beast Bull - First look

    Oh well...it would have been nice!
  6. Queens Beast Bull - First look

    It could be, so it would be interesting to hear if anyone was able to buy at that price. I've purchased a few time from RM bullion to determine if there was a quality difference vs. APMEX (I decided that for an overseas buyer, this is a good way to go only if you want to grade bullion). However, this is the first time Royal Mint Bullion has seemed less expensive, so it makes sense that maybe they aren't ready to sell yet. APMEX has them on presale ready to ship on March 14. I'll still watch to see if they show as in stock though 🙂
  7. Queens Beast Bull - First look

    I wonder if this was a bad price. I tried to buy some just now, and all the tubes are showing out of stock. In any case, thank you for the notification! This would have been my lowest price beast bullion even net of international shipping.
  8. New Addition to the Dealer Directory

    Welcome! The Coin Connection has been my go to source for Queen's Beasts proofs. Prices are lower than the Royal Mint, and quality control is taken care of for me, which is a huge benefit for an overseas customer. The Royal Mint will pay for postage on quality related returns, but then I still need to deal with packaging and customs.
  9. 250g Silver Forum Bars (2018) - Pre-orders open!

    I agree with @kimchi that this was just good sprited chat! However regarding the final two bars, I appreciate that but I would be happier seeing @PansPurse get it as it would get us closer to a sell out of the mintage
  10. 250g Silver Forum Bars (2018) - Pre-orders open!

    No problem at all! I was actually meaning to PM BYB to release him from the consecutive number request (coincidentally because it looked like nobody would take 13, and this would mess up his mintage), so your post simply served as a nudge to do so, and was not at all interpreted as rude
  11. 250g Silver Forum Bars (2018) - Pre-orders open!

    I was the buyer who any requested consecutive numbers, however as I can see it's causing some level of difficulty, I will amend my request to any 2 random numbers. This should make it easier for @BackyardBullion to fill out the mintage. The "late in the run" was made as a suggestion to allow BYB to more accurately assess demand, as the lower numbers tend to sell faster, and I have no designs on the final two numbers in the mintage
  12. Silver 1 ounce Red Dragon of Wales Proof NGC PF 70

    You're welcome! And I would agree, but I do think it's interesting to watch these listings and see where they actually sell. I would be shocked if there are not more listings in the future at lower prices. A few of the black core unicorns went for under the original MCM price, but most others were higher. If you are patient you will probably find a better deal than this. There's also the added dynamic of the next QB getting released (already!) at the end of this month. The NGC Early Releases cut off for the silver 1oz dragons only just passed at January 18th, and we will now see new supply of the next proof hitting the market. So you could better prices given the higher supply. (It of course also means that between now and the end of the month, MCM will be doing their pre-sale of the Bull, so if you want one of their black core holders, this is probably the most cost effective way to go, so watch their site...)
  13. Silver 1 ounce Red Dragon of Wales Proof NGC PF 70

    @NewMSmatist15 Here's one for sale that just appeared: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2018-Queens-Beasts-RED-DRAGON-OF-WALES-Silver-PROOF-NGC-PF70-UC-Early-Releases/122953411826?hash=item1ca0982cf2:g:y9EAAOSwrnRaeSMZ It's $90 more than MCM's original list price though.
  14. Silver 1 ounce Red Dragon of Wales Proof NGC PF 70

    Actually these look like they might have sold out already too! It said 20 available earlier today. In any case, I would keep watching eBay...not only does MCM sell directly through eBay, you'll likely see more of these black holders for sale from other sellers in time. Over the past few months many of the black core unicorns have been available, and they have long been sold out at MCM.
  15. Silver 1 ounce Red Dragon of Wales Proof NGC PF 70

    The black and white holder PF70 dragons were for sale on the MCM website just after the 1st of the year, and quickly sold out. More of their black holders were on EBay earlier this week, but look to have sold out. The white PF70 dragons went up on eBay today, and are currently available (link below). There might be more...I'm not sure but I think your best bet is to monitor EBay, as they seem to periodically sell more through that channel, but I haven't seen more on the MCM site. Good luck! https://www.ebay.com/itm/2018-1-oz-Silver-Queens-Beasts-Red-Dragon-2-NGC-PF70-UC-ER-SKU51934/382331911841?hash=item5904c1fea1:g:oXIAAOSwNWxaTnch
