    Are those 2 silver pandas mine? Anxious about the rest of them :-)
  2. Silver Stacking Regrets

    No regrets here. There were some purchases I ended up not liking that much, but fortunately with PMs you can always sell them off at a minimal loss or even at cost.
  3. Today i sold

    Sold some bullion back to goldsilver.be 2016 sovereign for €258 tube of 2016 silver maple leafs for €14.86 each (sale based off of spot prices from last week when we mailed back and forth) All in all a very smooth transaction and great communication (in stark contrast with some other people’s experience with gs.be). For regular bullion sales I’m definitely going to do this again.
  4. Everything sold (can no longer edit opening post) thanks all!
  5. bump - Landmarks still available
  6. As a panda fan I kind of like it, but would only buy it to personally enjoy, not as an investment. Don't see that much upside potential as: very niche target audience + already very high premium to start with
  7. Exact weight of 2018 1oz Britannia

    Are you sure your scale is measuring troy ounces and not regular (avoirdupois) ounces? if it just says "oz" with no "t" anywhere to be seen on your scale it's likely not troy weight it's measuring. 1 troy ounce is actually 1.097 "regular" ounce (which is more or less 1.1 - what you're seeing on your scale) see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troy_weight
  8. Spot price platinum vs coin price

    I don't think you'll find it cheaper anywhere, maybe in the US (but even then it will be about the same) but not in the EU here's the current prices in germany: https://www.gold.de/kaufen/platinmuenzen/

    Is there any difference price wise if they are sent to Heritage or if you send them to NGC yourself?
  10. Numistacker Appreciation Post

    The "Numistacker uploaded a new video" notification always puts a smile on my face And for that, I applaud you, good sir! (Oh and also an enormous amount of gratitude for all of your time, effort and patience)
  11. This is what puzzles me too; rationally thinking, the sheer effort that would be needed on a logistical level for any chemtrails story to be real. Thousands if not millions of people would have to be "in on it" to pull something like this off on a worldwide scale. I think it's highly unlikely. Have there been any credible whistleblowers with first hand experience about the whole matter that support a chemtrails story?
  12. GOLDSILVER.BE TERRIBLE !

    I'm pretty sure (legal tender) silver coins are subject to 0% VAT in Belgium, only generic rounds (like the privateer) or bars are taxed 21% If I look at my previous invoices from goldsilver.be, this seems to be the case
  13. Proof coins for investment - worth it?

    The term ‘proof coins’ is a pretty big range of possibilities what you could mean. Proof sovereigns, disney commemoratives, panda show medals, ... If it’s purely for investment I would in general stay away from proofs, especially the very low mintage ones. The audience wanting to pay a significant premium in the future for whatever proof you buy today will be small(ish), so it will take time and patience to find the right buyers and get your money back down the line, which I believe would be your goal. Imagine how long it would take you today to sell, say, 20 proof lunar 1 coins. I think you’d have to wait a while which isn’t very convenient if you need to cash out in a hurry, and always be aware of the risk that you might not sell everything/would have to sell lower than you paid for. Sovereign proofs in the UK might be a somewhat safe(r) bet though, if you know the market and do your research. Or US Mint proofs in the US, though there are also examples where people were paying exorbitant premiums at launch only to see the value drop over the coming months/years.
  14. Our atmosphere is what causes the colour of the sun to differ from time to time, not the composition of space. Space is a (near) vacuum. Watch Clif High for a good laugh but please don’t take whatever he says as facts. Alternative facts, perhaps 😄
  15. last bump and price reduction - £150 incl shipping for the 4x2oz Landmarks series Will consider trades as well
