The European Mint https://www.europeanmint.com/ have very generously offered yet another promotion for their customers (and for group order members too!). They are offering a 1 oz (or 1/2 oz) silver bullion coin as a reward if you make and upload to YouTube, a video showing an unboxing of an order from them (or from me to you as part of the group order).

Lol, that's the exact same thing a member here offered to do for you to promote your channel and service (in December?) for free but you didn't get the gist! I know you had chicken flu at the time though so completely understand, just saying because it's quite ironic! :)

Sorry...I might have a slow brain at the moment...I have no recollection of this 😉

Someone asked if you wanted an unboxing vid of the package you sent them from the group order (same thing, no?) but you didn't get what they were saying...December order I'm pretty sure, because I joked about filming mine too, and then wrapping it back up as pressies, and then filming the pressie unboxing as a triple unboxing vid (such is my 'sense of humour' :wacko:).

It's alright bud, you had chicken flu! Absolutely anything is understandable in those circumstances, except forgetting an important anniversay for the loved one (in which case you may wake up to find your testicles being used for your morning brew, which while a bit extreme perhaps, seems on balance fair enough to me :P).

It is ringing some bells, I think that the issues were that someone would unbox their order before the big unboxing video went live...which is the same in this promotional offer I guess.

Maybe anyone who has an unboxing video from this group order could upload their video on Sunday perhaps?

Here are the T&C's for members of the group order wanting to do an unboxing video.

 
T&C's for European Mint Promotional Unboxing Free 1/2 oz of Silver for silver forum group order members.
 
The European Mint is offering a promotional 1/2 oz Silver coin in return for a promotional unboxing video. 
 
Within the UK, Backyard Bullion will act as distributor of the promotional silver, outside of the UK The European Mint will distribute accordingly.
 
To qualify for the 1/2 oz Silver coin you must meet the following requirements:
 
1) You must make an "unboxing" video that clearly shows the unboxing of your order via Backyard Bullion as part of The Silver Forum group order. 
2) The video must be at least 2 minutes long and uploaded to YouTube. 
3) The video must honestly show an unboxing of your order from The European Mint via Backyard Bullion.
4) The video must contain the following phrase in the title, "Unboxing my group delivery from The European Mint"
5) The video must have a clickable hyperlink to The European Mint's website: https://www.europeanmint.com/ in the description box of the video.
6) It must have the following keywords in the "Tags" section on YouTube, "Silver", "Bullion", "Unboxing", "European Mint", "The European Mint"
 
There are no requirements for a minimum number of views or subscribers on your channel to qualify for the 1/2 oz Silver Coin. 
 
The prize will be a 1/2 oz 999 silver bullion coin of The European Mint's choosing. You will not be expected to pay for shipping of your promotional coin. 

Only one silver coin per person is available at this time.  

In order to verify that you qualify for the free silver coin you must email byb@backyardbullion.com (or info@europeanmint.com if you are based outside the UK) with a link to your unboxing video. The European Mint and/or Backyard Bullion will then verify you meet the above criteria. If you qualify for your free 1/2 oz of silver then The European Mint and/or Backyard Bullion will arrange delivery of your coin within 30 days.

These T&C's can be subject to change by The European Mint where necessary, fair and appropriate. The European Mint also reserves the right to withdraw this offer at any time without notice.

Abit of topic, but with group orders in the future, will they all be from the European mint or will you ever do one for gs.be again?

I do plan on ordering from GS.be again. There is no taking away from then that they have a very large selection of coins that nobody else in Europe can match.

As yet I don't know when/who the next order will be with.

Here you are bud, page 3. Consider it a free reminder of days long ago when you were younger, more handsome (hopefully, not all of us are George Clooneys - perhaps luckily :ph34r:), but considerably more flued up, still knocking out the vids and doing the group orders even though you could barely speak :):

Yes bells are ringing...that was a pretty nasty case of man flu!

I received my order today! Thank you very much! :)

What was unusual was the postman saying he had never seen a special delivery like this one.

Here is a picture.... How did you do this? :ph34r:

The post office must have had some old Special Delivery stamps - which are worth a certain amount - they will then add on the remaining postage needed with that other printed stamp.

My best guess anyway - regardless it arrived safe and sound!

Package received, thank you Mr & Mrs BYB.

First unboxing video about to be attempted.. I really should purchase a mount of some sort for my phone to connect to my many tripods. For now this will have to do..

@kimchi you have some way to go to beat this awesome looking "tripod". What I especially love is (what i assume are full rolls of silver) being used to counterbalance the weight of the book and phone!

Good luck getting into the parcel - I am well known for my "exceptional" wrapping skills 

;)

It's a fine effort to be sure, super job @Ansel ! :)

I doubt anyone will beat my 'tripod' and I will be the winner of the grand prize :D

On the other thread my (so far released :ph34r:) specs of fishing tackle, a toilet brush (no holder), some washing line and a selection of seasonal root vegetables was sniffed at...but since I posted about 'the super-smooth zoom function with added fluoride' using a tube or two of toothpaste I see the 'doubters' are now quiet B)

I also haven't yet incorporated what I regard as the 'big guns' - a Nintendo 64 (launch bundle with Mario 64 - boxed), a small aquarium (unused) and a metal detector. Granted I may have to knock through a partition wall to do so, but a small price to pay to be champion :)

Well then, video completed. I'm not sure I have stumbled on so many words in such a short period since I asked out my first girlfriend many moons ago. It is what it is though. I shall upload sometime this weekend after @BackyardBullion has uploaded the grand unboxing video. 

Turns out I had the phone the wrong way round for video, so glad I did a test before cutting into the packaging.

The things we do for a free 1/2oz of silver! :lol:

Did you actually write a script and practice before you started?

When I asked my first girlfriend out on a date? Not sure I can remember back that far. 

Regarding my unboxing video, mostly no, which was a mistake. I did write a few bullet points but as soon as I started opening the box that was mostly forgotten. In hindsight I should have practiced with a fake unboxing first. Little things bug me about it like taking @BackyardBullion's business card and showing it to the camera and then annoyingly covering it with packing materials. I should have spent more time with the coins in my hands and taken them out of the caps. It is a learning process though and like anything, you get out of it what you put in. 

What is that phrase - pre planning prevents piss poor performance!
