    phoenix reacted to BackyardBullion in **NOVEMBER** Group order   
    Welcome to the NOVEMBER 2018 Group Order!
    This group order will be from BOTH http://goldsilver.be/en AND https://www.europeanmint.com/ (MORE INFO ABOUT THIS IN THIS THREAD) 
    PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY AS IT CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT and JOINING THIS ORDER.
    Also, if you are interested in joining this order please "follow" this thread so as and when I have updates I can more easily share them. 
    Dates for this Group Order
    This group order will be open for 4 weekends, starting on 27th & 28th October 2018 and closing on Sunday 18th November 2018 @ 6pm UK time.
    New closing date: Sunday 11th November @ 6pm
    PLEASE NOTE WE WILL ONLY BE ACCEPTING ORDERS FROM http://goldsilver.be/en ON THE FIRST WEEKEND (27th & 28th October) 
    We will however be accepting orders from the European Mint at any time in these 4 weekends. 
    These dates WILL NOT be changed/extended and are fixed. I do however reserve the right to extend/end the order should an extenuating circumstance arrive - but this is unlikely to happen. 
    The delivery estimate for your orders is going to be week commencing 10th December 2018. This is an ESTIMATE only and may be subject to change. 
    Terms and conditions for joining the Group Order
    Joining this group order is at your own risk. Please make sure you read the following carefully because by joining the group order you are agreeing to the following.
    1) I (Backyard Bullion) cannot take financial responsibility for lost/damaged items that are part of this group order.
    2) Once payment has been received by Backyard Bullion all orders are final and cannot be refunded. 
    3) Orders are quoted based on live prices from the dealers website. If these prices change between quotation and payment additional funds will need to be sent (or refunded) where appropriate.
    4) You agree that I (Backyard Bullion) will act as an agent on your behalf to purchase items from the above mentioned dealers. 
    5) Backyard Bullion can only dispatch your order upon successful delivery from the appropriate dealer and only upon payment of a separate postage invoice - which is sent after the order has closed. 
    6) Any loss or damaged item claims will be initiated and managed by me (Backyard Bullion) and any payouts for claims can only be made upon the successful payout from said claim. Backyard Bullion cannot be held financially responsible for any unsuccessful claims.
    7) You are liable for any and all taxes that may be applied to your order for your home country of delivery. 
    😎 By joining the group order you agree unconditionally to all the above. 
    What is the group order all about?
    This group order is a way to combine shipping costs for buying silver from Europe. We pay drastically less for our silver because we essentially do not pay VAT. I organise these orders so that people can get cheap silver but also so that I can unbox a large quantity of silver for my YouTube channel. It helps grow my social media, my BYB brand and my reputation within the community.
    This month, we are going to be using two dealers https://www.europeanmint.com/ and http://goldsilver.be/en
    DUAL GROUP ORDER - WEEK 1 ONLY
    As I mentioned above we are doing a dual order - but ONLY IN THE FIRST WEEK.
    You can order via The European Mint in any of the 4 weekends, but only from Goldsilver.be IN THE FIRST WEEKEND (27th & 28th October).
    EUROPEAN MINT PRICE MATCH GUARANTEE - EXCLUSIVE TO SILVER FORUM GROUP ORDERS
    The EU Mint have offered to price match the following items with GS.be (assuming that they are not already cheaper!)
    Any coins from the Queen's Beast Series (bullion), 10 oz & 2 oz - including the 10 oz dragon & 2 oz bull Oriental Border Britannias Perth Mint Dragon Bars Regular bullion coins from 2018, Britannias, Maples, Philharmonicas, kangaroos, koalas, pandas, kookaburras and eagles. Back dated years is on a case by case basis.  The new Royal Mint two dragon coin Other coins may be price matched upon request - but no guarantee.  Other items will have to be on a case by case basis. Some items cannot be price matched because of the volumes that The European Mint buys them in does not allow any room for movement in price. However for the list of coins above we are able to get the same unit price per coin. 
    How do you place an order?
    The way this works is simple. You will decide what you want by looking at https://goldsilver.be/en or https://www.europeanmint.com/ and send me a private message via the forum WITH HYPERLINKS PLEASE! to each item and how many you want. Please only message me via The Silver Forum only. 
    I will send you a screen dump of the basket and total on their website and then I will send you another screen dump from www.transferwise.com showing the conversion and total in £.
    You then send the funds directly to me via PayPal F&F or Banks transfer and as soon as I get the funds I will place the order. Your order is then locked in and confirmed, you cannot cancel after this stage. 
    WE WILL ONLY BE ORDERING IN STOCK ITEMS - ANYTHING ON PRE-ORDER WILL NOT BE ALLOWED.
    This is to avoid any delays after the order closes. 
    When to order and pay Backyard Bullion?
    I will only be placing orders on the weekends and any funds must be with me before 6pm. I will not be able to place orders mid week unless there are extenuating circumstances. This is simply because I am a busy person and organising and keeping track of these orders is difficult. Feel free to send me your shopping lists during the week but understand that I will not be able to lock it in until the weekend - this is just the way it has to be so be aware that prices may fluctuate in the run up to the weekend. I would rather do it like this than potentially forget or miss recording orders and making mistakes. 
    Deadline
    The order will close on Sunday 19th November 2018 @ 6pm UK time. You will need to have got funds to me by then if you would like to order anything. Should there be any delays in this it will mean the group order will be delayed and I will communicate any changes out to people via this thread. 
    New closing date: Sunday 11th November @ 6pm
    Shipping costs & Share of international postage. 
    The European Mint has offered a very generous shipping quote for this order - capped at 1% of the total value of the order, e.g. If you spend €500 your shipping is €5.
    GoldSilver.be's shipping is fixed at €18 and this will be split between all members that have ordered with GoldSilver.be as a % value of your order in relation to the entire order with GoldSilver.be - an example would be if your individual order is €500 and the total order with GoldSilver.be is €1000 you pay 50% of €18 (€9). 
    How do I get my coins from Backyard Bullion?
    Once the order has been delivered to me you will receive an "onwards postage invoice" which will include onwards postage and packaging from me to you. We will sort out the onwards postage and packaging once the order has been completed. Onwards shipping is at your choice and risk via Royal Mail. It is at this stage that we will sort out the share of international postage (if any applies). 
    Here is a quick guide as to what the onwards postage costs will be. 

    Please note that the maximum that you can send via Royal Mail Special delivery for a decent price is 2kg (about 55 oz). 
    If you would like to order more than this please get in touch to discuss shipping options.  
    ****Please also note that there is NO PRECIOUS METALS INSURANCE on any royal mail service other than Special Delivery****
    What happens in the event of an issue with delivery?
    As I said in the disclaimer at the top of this thread, I cannot be held financially responsible for the loss/damage of any items in this group order. The European Mint and GoldSilver.be's have insurance for their parcels but I have never had to put a claim in and I do not know how likely it might be that something is refunded should it go missing in transit. There is an intrinsic risk in ordering from any international company but I am confident that we will be able to resolve anything that might happen. Please bear this in mind before joining the order. 
    It is important to note the above terms and conditions and re-iterate that joining this order is at YOUR OWN RISK. I cannot be held responsible if items are lost/damaged when arriving from the European Mint or GoldSilver.be 
    Should there be any issues I will of course endeavour to work with the dealer to solve them, but I cannot guarantee a resolution. 
    Delivery from me to you is of a postage method of your choosing. As I have mentioned above there is no precious metals insurance for anything other than Royal Mail Special Delivery. In the event an order is missing or damaged any insurance claims will be made by me (Backyard Bullion) and refunds can only be paid upon successful completion and payout from Royal Mail. In the event that a claim by Royal Mail is denied I cannot be held financially responsible.
    Final Thoughts
    Is it worth it to join?
    Yes - buying silver from Europe is the single cheapest way of buying silver. Doing it as part of this group order is cheaper still. Some of their coins may be more expensive (the more collectable type coins) but certainly not by much. 
    Another reason to join the more you buy the cheaper it gets for everybody! 
    Additionally you will be helping support my YouTube channel because being able to unbox a large quantity of silver for my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/backyardbullion is always a fun and popular video and it helps grow my brand and business.
    Does Backyard Bullion charge for this service?
    I do not charge for you to join this group order - but we do ask you to consider contributing funds in the form of a "tip" or "Service charge". We ask for just £1 (but as many of you frequently do please feel free to donate whatever you feel appropriate! I will not be offended or angry if you choose not to pay the "tip" - but bear in mind that proceeds from the tip help feed Mrs BYB a slap up takeaway and keeping her interested in all the hard work of doing these group orders...
    For those who are interested, our takeaway of choice for this order will be a GIANT Chinese!
    Combining postage with other BYB items
    Of course, if you want to combine other orders with this group order we would be more than happy to offer discounts on our hand poured silver. 
    Have you got any questions?
    If you have any questions or would like any more information then please don't hesitate to ask here or via PM. 
    In the meantime - get me your shopping lists!

    I got my first 1g gold bar from Lea79 and a 2oz Lion from Kamikaze.
    Really interested what everyone thinks of the bar. At 1g they’re a high premium over spot, but can be resold with that premium - however lots of people don’t seem to like them. Also think the Perth Mint packaging offsets the metal beautifully. The black and gold looks gorgeous and really adds to my enjoyment of the item. Think some other bar manufacturers could up their presentation game! I don’t plan to collect many this size, but they’re relatively cheap and attractive objects.

    Got my first silver Panda. Purchased from eBay due to nectar points and a PayPal offer. I've also got some testing magnets and scales on order just in case, but the seller had a lot of positive feedback, so here's hoping it's real.
    Beautiful design though. Definitely keen to get a few different years now I've got this one.
