  1. I think anything over 10% is crazy. Usually can buy for same or less premium as normal bullion that is 3-5%. Sometimes can find deals for like 1-2% less than spot Proof coins are waste of money in my opinion. I can understand somebody buys one in silver here and there but in gold - the base metal price makes these coins extrimely expensive and as I said waste of money
  2. Monkey for me - if the coin is in mint condition. At least looks good on the pictures, but can you check that no handling marks?
  3. Do I miss something, but according to my quick calculation these items have a nice 200% premium over spot. A single 1g piece has metal content value of around £0.3? Are these traded in the post armageddon world to buy some bread? 😁
  4. You would destroy around half up to the full premium over melt. Do not do it! If you want to remove it from the sleeve then please send the coin for grading instead.
  5. Pretty awesome looking coin in my opinion. Mintage only 5000 coins. This will be a winner!
  6. I sold £7600 worth of my stock investment portfolio last Friday that I bought two weeks ago. I got a loss off £600 and I am pretty annoyd to myself. The stocks portfolio was supposed to be a long term investment. However I got spooked about the developments in the trade war between China and US. Now that the CFO of Huawei has been arrested the stocks can only go down. I have now decided that I will hide my money under the mattress. I can re enter the stock market but only after I have seen it go down at least 5%
  7. How about this: https://auragentum.de/1-unze-goldmuenze-queens-beasts-griffin-2017?number=9201863 And this: https://auragentum.de/1-unze-goldmuenze-queens-beasts-lion-2016?number=9201691 And this is just how much a dealer is willing to pay for it. Sorry pal you got screwed bad time.
  8. I do not understand your reasoning: It is the buyer usually who needs to take a counterparty risk (pay first, get item afterwards). What extra stress is it for you? You did not just lose few hundred, you lost almost £1000 for not doing your due diligence. And in gold relative terms you probably lost that £1500
  9. You would have received easily £1250 per piece for the griffins here. Similarly £1200 for the lion. For the dragon £1100. Now you sold those coins for melt value to a dealer. Great job, you got drilled twice instead of turning for profits. Atkinsson will resell the griffins for £1350 and £1300 for the lion a piece. Easy money for them
  10. 50 queens beast 1 oz griffins gold coins I bought from Royal Mint when these cois were on sale on RMB with 4% premium over melt. Sold 40 of those coins later on the year for handsome profit of almost £13k. The ones left on my hand I will grade with PCGS and hopefully will get MS-70
  11. Hi I have been a hug fan of the dragon & phoenix bullion released in silver and especially in gold. It is now already over a year when they first released the dragon & phoenix in 1 oz gold bullion with 5k mintage cap. Does anybody know when the tiger & dragon is going to be releasd in gold?
  12. Today I received a small sheet of 1 oz Gold pandas from year 2006 in OMP.
  13. I managed to negotiate the price for 5% premium over spot. I think it was a good deal for this particular griffin even though I would have been happy to receive it in perfect condition and paid a lot more. As this was the only coin left the only choice would have been to get a refund. The seller was very helpful and understandable. I would like to encounter all dealers in same way.
