    Hi to all fellow collectors out there!
    I found this forum through some youtube clips, where the silver forum was a sponsor. Been buying some small amounts of gold and silver bullion the last year. I figured i'd start to collect/stack a bit more from now on and forward in time. I kinda like the thought of being able to collect, "invest" and stack at the same time. Brilliant hobby!
    So here is my current huble collection, including this years purchase, the 2018 1kg & 1oz Kookaburra.
    As you guys can see, my current collection "focus" are gold maple leafs. I am also looking to collect the whole set of Kookaburra's 1kg and 1oz, as I just found out about the 1kg's silver bullions this year.
     
    Looking forward to join this comunity.
    Cheers from the northern part of Europe.

    It's the Royal Mint, they can't even package their Proof coins properly!
    If anyone uses Westminster delete your address from your account after buying anything or you'll get daily junk mail offering you 'a once in a lifetime opportunity to commemorate Prince George's first ever cup of tea in stunning sterling silver' and other such 'bargains'

    EBay charges high fees.  Private sellers are charged 10% for the total sale, including charging fees on the postage costs plus 3% +20p to receive the cash via PayPal.  I think business sellers are charged slightly less and also, I guess frequent sellers add a little bit extra to cover items that go missing in the post and to cover the dishonesty of buyers saying 'I didn't get it mate'.  eBay heavily leans toward the buyer in any dispute or 'case' taken up by the buyer.  
    A Sovereign realising say, £250 including postage charged, will only net the seller £216.30 (£25 eBay Fee; £8.70 PayPal fee) less Special Delivery cost of £6.45= only £209.85 net of fees and postage!  Not a good scenario.
    At the time of writing, the same sovereign sold to Hatton Garden Metals would net you £220.66 less your choice of postage to send the coin to them.
    Having said all of the above, eBay often have deals for sellers such as either a flat £3 or £1 to sell cost or I have seen a 1p to sell recently.  I guess most savvy sellers will wait around to take advantage of these dramatically reduced fees, particularly for high ticket items and list several/ many items at these times.  
     
    Footnote:  
    My local auction house, which is not very renown, publishes these fees for selling.  It makes eBay look very cheap to sell.   And a breeze to buy from eBay compared to the buyer being hammered as well as the seller.  Also, take a good look at the payment terms by this auction house, the seller has to wait up to 25 days for payment. What nonsense in 2018.  And the fees below don't take account of the extra 3%+ VAT Premium charged to buyers for the privilege of spending their cash on that new invention called the Internet!!! What a scam.   My experience these days is that a very high proportion of sales are knocked down to the internet. Thank the Lord they are now not allowed to charge another 2-3% for Credit Card payment.  
    Don't think I've ever seen or will see, an auctioneer riding a bike!
