  1. Yep, all Platinum 1oz out of stock at EuropeanMint plus Palladium. 😐
  2. Silver 10oz Yales now sold out at European Mint. QB 10oz falcons too, for what it's worth. I do find their site pretty basic. At least at a minimum it would be nice to be able to filter the selection of coins shown in each category - for example by weight. Still, the selection is not enormous so it's always possible to scroll through it by price and eventually find what you're looking for.
  3. European Mint still have a fairly wide selection of platinum bullion available as of tonight. Pt QB Falcon has sold out today though, so I wouldn't be surprised if others disappear soon. I've picked up a couple of items in the last few days as I still like Platinum even if people do say it's doomed. Palladium Maple Leaf now out of stock too. No palladium options left on their site.
  4. Except they're not really that cheap thanks to boosted premiums. Price is almost exactly the same as what I paid for other 10oz coins in the series when the spot price was 13% higher. Still a reasonable buy but you would hope the price would actually be up to 13% lower today.
  5. Indeed, the premiums have dropped in the last couple of hours. The lowest was 31% when I posted. Might have to splash out on another coin.
  6. GSBe has effectively no Platinum bullion in stock since yesterday - just a few one-off ultra-high premium coins available. European Mint have a few more but the premiums are 31-35%, compared to 9-14% just a day or two ago. As a concrete example of what this means, I actually bought a coin yesterday when the spot price was 16.5% higher but the current list price for the same coin today on EM is actually higher than I paid then.
  7. It's true that the premiums are eye-watering right now. Was very tempted to do some buying at these levels but in fact the price of many items has hardly gone down because the premiums have gone up so much. 😕
  8. Do they have expiry dates on homeopathic 'medicine'? It can't really have a shelf-life if it doesn't actually do anything.
  9. As mentioned above I think this is a case of the system having changed. They used to charge shipping up front when you made the first order and put it into storage and they've now switched to only adding shipping at the end. I fell into the same situation, sent a message through their system pointing this out, and they took the shipping off the invoice. Problem solved.
  10. First image I've found of the Queen's Beasts White Horse of Hanover. Looks pretty good to me - fairly generic horse, and bit too much empty background, but not bad overall.
  11. I think I'd be taking a similar approach if I'd had 5oz of Rh - selling some at these high levels but holding a little back for possible continuing climbs. I certainly don't think I'd hold onto it all - just too much risk of missing out before an eventual drop. At this point I still find Platinum tempting. It's never going to reach Rh levels clearly, but it seems to me that it could surge to Pd levels eventually (close to doubling its current level). Probably just wishful thinking on my part.
  12. Thanks for the answers people. I hadn't fully understood the roles of the different PGMs in catalytic convertors.
  13. A question for Pampfan (as official forum cheerleader for rhodium 😉) - As I understand it, back in around 2005 to 2008 rhodium climbed rapidly from around $1,000 to highs of close to $10,000/oz. This made it economically nonviable for catalytic convertor use, causing manufacturers to switch to less efficient but much cheaper alternatives such as platinum and palladium and leading to the price of rhodium collapsing back to around $1,000 over a very short period of time. Now over the last 3 to 4 years the price of rhodium has climbed again, following much the same curve as it did before, and looks to be heading for a similar level of close to, or perhaps beyond, $10,000/oz. While there's probably still some upside to be had right now as the price continues to climb, is there any reason to think that the end result will be different this time to 2008? Why would manufacturers stick with rhodium at $10,000+/oz when they could switch to platinum at under $1,000? Has something changed significantly in the last 10 years?
  14. I like the QB platinum coins and compared to getting hold of a Lion in silver or gold the Pt version is still relatively affordable, particularly if you think the metal itself is going to climb in the long run. The Perth Mint Lunar III Pt coin might also be worth a look as the first in a new series. Personally I also like the old Platypus coins but that's just me - no reason to think they'll gain semi-numismatic value vs QBs or Lunar IIIs.
  15. I believe this just means your order has been stored in their safe pending availability of the complete order.
