  1. First image I've seen of the Perth Mint 2019 silver swan (bullion). I liked the first two but I'm not so keen on this one.
  2. People aren't buying/selling those for bullion value so they're worth whatever people are willing to pay. I can say that right now that's about 18% lower than the asking price on GSBe. Also, the buyback price offered by auragentum.de for these is currently the equivalent of £240. I've never tried selling through them but maybe it gives some idea of resale value through a dealer that recognizes semi-numismatic value. So the price is about half way between the going rate at a major dealer and what you could maybe resell it for at another dealer, which sound fairly reasonable to me.
  3. I'm reminded of Obi-Wan Kenobi explaining the Jedi mind trick to Luke: "The Force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded." Just replace "The Force" with "YouTube" and it all becomes clear.
  4. In that case at least you still paid less per coin than you would have through any other source at the time. Your only regret is that you could have had an even better deal. As regrets go that's not so bad. Like you I still don't understand why GSBe have their QB monster boxes listed at higher prices than the individual coins. This doesn't seem to be a one-off thing as I've noticed it before and it's still the case today.
  5. At least you've saved me the trouble of asking, as I was looking at the price of the QB Monster Boxes on GSBe when I read a post the other day mentioning them and was wondering why they were priced higher per unit than individual coins. Seemed like a lot for a big plastic box and some small plastic tubes. To be honest I would think this is something you would have checked before buying. Shelling out 7k€ without working out the unit cost and seeing how much you were saving (or in this case paying as a premium) over buying individually seems like it should be a first step rather than an afterthought. In any case in the long run these are likely to appreciate significantly and make the difference largely irrelevant.
  6. Plenty of good sense replies above. Personally I dabbled in various silver bullion coins before coming to the conclusion that currently the 2oz and 10oz QB bullion coins seem to be the best bet at present. At worst they are bullion coins at a very small premium over the bog-standard bullion coins like the kangaroo and maple leaf. And they (imho) look much nicer. At best they appear to be gaining a very healthy semi-numismatic premium as they go out of production, something that will never be the case with the standard bullion coins. There are a couple of other designs I buy because I like the look but otherwise it's QBs all the way for me.
  7. It can definitely be painful paying over the odds for one of the earlier coins but if you put it into perspective many people are happy to pay similar premiums on fairly large run bullion coins. Case in point: 2oz silver QB Griffin on GSBe now is 55.97€, or 27.99€/oz The new Perth Mint Simpsons 1oz Homer Simpsons "D'OH!" coin is priced at 26.18€. It's limited to 25,000 but that's still a bullion coin.
  8. Don't forget the bullion coin mintages (2oz Ag, 1oz and 1/4oz Au) are unlimited. They'll be producing as many as they can sell for one year from the release date. The comments above about selling out are for the proof versions.
  9. This thread is all over the place, but the sub-thread on physical gold/silver holdings is an interesting one. My understanding would be that even if the company is completely legitimate and does really hold 'your' physical gold, if the company goes under your PM is not going to simply get returned to you and off you skip into the sunset. You would simply be one of many creditors of the assets held by the company and if you were lucky enough that the company's assets actually exceeded its debts you might eventually (some years later) be paid off with some portion of your original investment/holding, after all the corporate investors had been paid off of course.
  10. Well @Wonger has certainly achieved something here - he's made @sixgun look like he's just another of the 'sheeple' being deceived by the 'man'. I'd doff my tinfoil hat to you, but I'm afraid it might dislodge my lizard-person mask. 🙄
  11. Gentlemen - it's tin foil hats at dawn. May the most fanatic conspiracy theorist win - or the one the [Rothschilds/Bilderbergs/illuminati/lizard people]* want to win! * insert your choice of world-order secret society here.
  12. Do they control the tinfoil hat market too?
  13. I think I passed you on the M20 the other day...
  14. It probably doesn't help if you've attached sharpened metal scaffolding poles to the sides and spend the day playing a flamethrower electric guitar on top of it.
  15. At this point it might be better to invest in tinned food, toilet paper, and Mad Max style vehicles. Apart from Brexit there doesn't seem to be any need to rush-order these unless you're pretty certain Ag and Au prices are going to keep climbing over the next year. Personally I find the current prices pretty painful to look at. I'll maybe wait for a bit of a drop in spot price to take advantage of before I buy these.
