    Limited mintage helps.
    Comes supplied from the mint in a capsule too, so the condition and quality will be significantly better than bullion.
    Premiums on coins are a mystery for sure. But the first oriental border Britannia has now grown in premium and is around the €20.50 mark per coin which is a good little bit of growth.
    The issue is of course (with all premium coins) finding buyers for them quickly. You can sell spot price Britannias all day long on the forum, but I think many people would think twice about £20/oz oriental border Britannias.
    I have been selling some of the 2018's on eBay this last few months and they regularly go for over £20 - £22 each - but image buying a couple of hundred and selling them all to different people! Speaking as one who knows how much work it is to organise and package up 100 parcels, it might just be easier to buy regular Britannias!
    That turned into a longer post than intended, hope that answers your question!

    Hows your weekend going? 
    Ours has been quite busy!
    This is just box 1........
    We will be sending out what we can tomorrow, but there are a lot of coins still to come, so you might not get your order until later this coming week. 
    There is no easy way to communicate who's order is being dispatched, if you really have to know drop me a message. 
    Unboxing video on Wednesday!

    @cravethatcoin
    Here we ago again. I really should not gratify you with a response, but seeing as you have called out my honesty and integrity I am going to. 
    Let's address it point by point so that maybe you can better understand just how wrong you are. 
    First up.
    What exactly are you insinuating here? These orders have never been about getting a bulk discount on the prices of coins. It has always been about the collective sharing of international shipping costs. So, you are making assertions that are a) not true & b) not even applicable!
    At the same time you are challenging my honesty and integrity about the situation - accusing me of hiding and avoiding the reasons why they aren't offering bulk discounts on coins!
    Perhaps this kind of attitude that you demonstrate is the reason why.....and probably why you were subsequently blocked and banned from commenting on my channel for your obtuse and rude assertions and personal attacks against me and the users of the group order. Now you are here!
    Now you are calling out the 400+ different individual people that have joined the group orders in all the time I have been doing them as being "in a trance" (I assume this is what you meant as you typed "trace").
    Well, group order members, are you all in a "trance" or "trace"???? Have I beguiled you with lies and wit to join this group order? 
    Now let's move onto the negatives you so kindly laid out for us all. 
    I communicate via the forum messaging system. The Silver Forum is SSL encrypted. In addition to that my own website and associated email is SSL encrypted. In addition to that I have 2 step verification. Nothing is ever fully hack proof of course, but come on, this is a big stretch and in my (and I would imagine many others) not a valid negative about the group order.
    But to give due respect, if you have a better idea for communication (other than using Gumtree like you mentioned in another post you put up last night, which by the way is probably one of the least secure ways you can go about buying and selling Gold and Silver!!) then I am all ears. 
    OK - this is one of the downsides, I will give you that. But it is also not a big factor for many people. In fact, there are a lot of people who would vault their orders with dealers and have them shipped once every 6 months. So it is a downside, but a full blown negative? Bit of a stretch. 
    How is this even a point you are making? You seem to be clutching for anything to moan about at this stage.....
    I can argue (and you actually back this up yourself for me in this very post) that the costs of shipping are laid out very clearly such that people can calculate them just as you have done later in your post. So your point here is completely invalid. 
    And the reason I do the shipping invoices at the end is because there are a lot of people that tag on extra items as the weeks progress. If I did a shipping quote at the start then I would have a huge extra administrative burden of adding additional postage because of different weight brackets. 
    OK, first up it is the EU Mint, not Goldsilver.be but OK....
    There is indeed an extra logistical step in that myself and Mrs BYB have to organise peoples orders into individual parcels and ship them out. 
    The very few (and I literally mean 2 or 3 times in 400+ orders) that we have made a mistake in sending out the wrong coins, we have contacted and/or corrected as soon as we were informed or realised  the mistakes at our own expense.
    I forget the names of those involved, but if you are one of those people reading this please back me up!
    So, there is no additional risk to the customer because they will always get their order........
    Well, clearly you know nothing about how this order works.
    We do things on a weekend when the metal prices are static. 
    If you had bothered to read/understand how the order works perhaps your list of negatives would be considerably shorter. 
    Yes. But you even put your biased opinion when typing this. "slightly". 
    You did the maths yourself. You saved £10.51 - if you don't want to save £10 then give it to some of the many people out there that do want to save £10. 
    A great demonstration of your lack of awareness about how ordering from GS.be and EU Mint works. 
    If you bothered to check the shipping when you have logged in you will see that the shipping from GS.be is €22 with a total of €534.32
    In addition the cost from the EU mint for 32 Britannias ordering directly is €36, not €30 and the total is €544.48
    If you joined the group order your total would be approximately €528 including the special delivery shipping from me to you.
    As you can see, significant savings. 


    No, you do not need a middleman to order cheap silver from Europe. But as I have demonstrated it makes that already cheap silver EVEN CHEAPER!!!
    In addition there are the added benefits that you chose not to include in your post. 
    - You do not have to set up an account with the dealer and physically place the order with them. Simply tell me what you want and I give you a price. 
    - You do not have to set up accounts with money transfer services like Transferwise. I have these already done and I am ID verified and have undergone money laundering checks. Saves you a lot of time and hassle. 
    - You can plan when to be in to accept delivery. If you choose UK to UK special delivery you know what day you are going to be in to take delivery. 
    - You do not have to deal with the dealer directly. Ever tried emailing GS.be with a query about a specific item? Nightmare (and that is often when they actually reply!). In this order, as I have demonstrated, I can ask the EU mint manager a question and get an answer within minutes. 
    There are other benefits as well, but to be honest, I am losing the will to live defending myself to you.
    So in summary.....
    Get your facts straight before making personal attacks on me, the group order and its users. 
    I do not force anybody to join the group order. 
    I am clear, up front and honest about the way the order works and any insinuation that I am missleading people will be strongly defended. 
    You do not have to join the group order.
