    It's a Melbourne one indeed

    Today I Received.....

    I did a nice unboxing this weekend with a (for my standards) huge amount of silver and gold. Gold sovereign, random year. I ended up with a nice 1902 one. Haven't read a lot about sovereigns, but I think this is a nice year to have 5 gilded silver coins: 2018 britannia, 2018 maple leaf, 2018 walking liberty, 2016 & 2017 philharmoniker 2018 Proof rectangular dragon: really cool presentation box 2018 10 oz Valiant 2019 Queens beasts falcon (also dragon and lion so I have 2 of each) 2018 Tokelau Equilibrium: looks better than expected after seeing the video review posted on here a while ago. 2018 St. Helena Spade of Guinea 2017 & 2018 Cayman Marlin: I like that they switched the coins, so with 2 of each you get to see both sides with the package intact. 2014 & 2015 Burundi proof History of Aviation: Messerschmitt & Kawasaki, nice quality boxes

    Goldsilver.be refuse to send my order?

    My latest order went without a hassle. Stored several orders and combined shipment. Shipped with Fedex. Was a very diverse order, but all complete.

    Today I bought.....

    I'm wondering what I'm getting by the way. I think it should be just over 1 kg, but the shipment information says 26 kg... Maybe I'm receiving the group order

    Today I bought.....

    I ordered a whole lot, total of about 1 kg of silver in different coins and a bit of gold. Bullion, proofs, gilded. Really looking forward to the unboxing . It arrived at the distribution point already, but had to postpone the actual delivery to friday.... Finally get to see my beasts Falcon. And most looking forward to my 10 oz Valliant and the proof rectangular dragon.

    Beautiful Silver Marlin coin

    Looks like the only difference is the swp presentation folder. Not worth it imho, since the original mint is Scottsdale. So I don't see how the certificate of authenticity has additional value. I bought the 2017 and 2018 ones for 19 and 17 euros a while back.

    Tokelau Leopard Shark Coin from EU Mint

    GS.be states 20 per tube, so that might be it.

    Complete noob saying hello

    Welcome! Personally I haven't bought from eldorado yet, but I believe I've read some good experiences on the forum. goldsilver.be has enough topics on here, you'll have to make your judgement based on that (it's a company with strong pros and cons). For youtube: check out Numistacker and Backyardbullion. Both are on the forum and both have informative videos.

    I'm curious whether anything has happened? If I remember correctly stay stated the deadline of Tuesday for payment. Any follow-up actions by GS.be?
  11. I guess they should skip one in line 🤣

    To be one of the other 99: I have not had any problems with them. In the shipment, packaging and quality of the coins. A lot of the problems I see with GS.be on the forum start when something is done out of the ordinary by the buyer. (no contact with customer service is no bad contact with customer service) Add: For me it is also the combination of price of coins, cheap shipping and the immense selection (usually there are some that I can't even find somewhere else)

    I assume that all bullion dealers work with futures and other kinds of derivatives to cover themselves for fluctuations in spot prices in almost real time. If they sell something, they can close the linked positions because coverage is no longer needed. If I remember correctly from earlier in the topic the order was cancelled after about 8 hours, so the positions would have been closed. Enough time for loss to accumulate. Whether that accumulates to 390 euros, I don't know, but enough ways they could have incurred losses.

    Here in the Netherlands the loser pays the cost in theory, but like Belgium there are set amounts which usually don't cover the actual costs.
