  1. Hello, Any Canadians here have purchased Silver from US suppliers like Provident Metal, Apmex or others? How was your existence or what payment method did You used? How much charges for Shipping ? Any free shipping to Canada? What was your best deal purchased from US with delivery to Canada? Do you have to pay duty for silver? It is better/ cheaper to purchase from Canadian dealers or better deals include shipping can be found in US? Thank you for all the comments and info provided.
  2. Hi everyone. I know your already on here, but if you overlooked it, have a read at the benefits of selling if your located in the USA or Canada on that section. ATM there are some very generous prizes in the form of membership for a month EVERY WEEK!!!! Anyway I hope you enjoy. This is a video made for the Silver forum.
  3. Hello I am trying to collect again the canadian sovereigns which they were minted from 1908 to 1919. I think its a very interesting period of gold sovereigns so i will start with my first coin i bought today. 1913- C gold sovereign with only 3,715 mintage. Certified by PCGS 64 Any comments would be great to read.
  4. I am looking to downsize my collection a bit and wish to offer some items for sale on the Forum. I am very unsure about valuations and dubious about Ebay prices. Chrissilver has suggested I ask for help with the valuations and any advice would be appreciated. The coins are as follows:- CANADA Wildlife 2011/13 (Grizzly,Wolf,Puma,Elk,Bison,Antelope) 6 coins Birds of Prey 2014/2015 4 Coins Predator 2016/18 3 Coins Bison 2015 Arctic (1 1/4 oz) 2013/2017 5 Coins AUSTRALIA Funnel web Spider Crocodile Stock Horse Set 5 coins I would prefer to sell them in bulk or sets rather than individually. They are all BU Encapsulated Thank you
  5. This is MY personal and honest review. Please read the description on YouTube. I will share my thoughts with Phil and Eli as well. What are your thoughts? Do you agree?
  6. I bought these earlier this year, partly because I loved the design and partly because with the new "technique" the RCM developed to avoid milk spots I wasn't as weary to buy their silver coins, but I haven't seen much about these in this or other coin forums. I also, unless I'm not looking properly, haven't seen these on eBay or coin sites. So, any love for the Great White North Coins this year? Are these just not what forum members are usually interested in? The first coin pictured is a special design of the typical bullion Canadian Maple Leaf coin with a big "30" hugging the traditional Maple Leaf Design. Canada did a similar design on the 25th anniversary in 2013, but I didn't purchase that coin. There isn't anything remarkable about this coin, but I like the way the anniversary number looks around the maple leaf, the privy mark serves a purpose (it is for anti-counterfeit measures) so it doesn't bother me, and the fine radial background on obverse and reverse is appealing IMHO. According to the NGC website there are 126 coins of this type graded MS 70 across the label pedigrees (early release, first release, and standard). Mintage of 250,000 according to the websites I've seen. The second is an incuse design reverse proof Maple Leaf coin. This is an odd coin for the RCM to produce. I would love more info on this if others have it. What I know is it has a mintage of 6,500, and according to the NGC census almost 3000 have been graded by them and 93% of them have been PF 70. I don't think this coin is a part of a series, but not sure, and it seems the FDOI (first day of issue) pedigree is the one to have, but there are 1,000 of those kicking around in PF 70 with NGC holders according to the census data. I like this coin better than the first one because of the simplicity and contrast of the reverse proof as well as the edge lettering. These coins also bring up the question of rarity. The first, has hundreds of thousands minted, but just over a hundred in the top grade, while the latter has a low mintage for a coin, especially a commemorative proof, and yet the majority of them are "perfect". So one is a conditional rarity and one is a mintage rarity, but which one is more desirable???
  7. For a good portion of the summer I stopped buying any coins, gold or silver, proof or bullion, because I felt a bit overwhelmed by all the series that are available. There's the Chinese Panda series, the Chinese Lunar series, the Britannia Series (my personal favorite, but not much love from a lot of collectors nowadays), the Great Britain Lunar series, the Perth Lunar series, the Canadian Lunar series, the Rwandan Lunar series (these are quite lovely, but I didn't set aside cash for them or buy any ūüė•), the Canada Predator series, the Kangaroos, the Kookaburras, the Saltwater Crocodiles, the Birds of Paradise, the Emus, and the Sharks. The Queen's Beasts, the Lion Dollars, and the Bisons. Not to mention the Ukrainian Archangels, the Isle of Man Nobles, the Niue hawksbills, superheroes, and star wars coins. Colorized coins, incuse coins, concave coins, egg shaped coins, coins that are square, coins that have scalloped edges, and privy marks on everything! Just tossing a discussion out to the Forum in general. Does anyone else feel overwhelmed by all of these? Are there forum members that have culled down their collections and eliminated collecting certain series? If so, which series are you avoiding or stopping?
  8. Another coin copyright/patent issue! The first coin that had some copyright controversy was the Isle of Man "Britannia Rules The Waves" coin where the motto was an infringement on the UK Royal Mint's Property rights. I don't fully know the legal issues other than the motto was not able to be used by the Isle of Man since the UK Royal Mint had rights to it. Well there is another controversy and this time it is two Commonwealth countries suing each other. From what I gather there is a special technique that the Royal Canadian Mint developed to put color on coins. And, according to the RCM, the Australian coins using colorization are using that method without permission! See the article link at the end of the post. Has anyone started hoarding the Australian $2 coins in question? Or any other colorized coins? Anyone following this or the other "copyright coins" to see how they have done in terms of price movement? http://nationalpost.com/news/politics/first-it-was-poppies-now-its-possum-magic-canadian-mint-ups-ante-in-court-battle-with-australia-over-coins
  9. Some of you who have watched any of my youtube videos might know that the canadian predator series is one of my favourite cheap semi-numi series. The cougar is an awesome looking piece, and the lynx is pretty sweet too. My understanding was that there were to be four coins in the series. It hasn't escaped my attention however that the next coin in the series has yet to be announced, despite the last coin in the series being revealed over a year ago. I would have expected to have heard something about it by now, at least which animal would feature, if not the exact design. One or two websites seem to think the next coin will be the grizzly bear, but I cant tell if its the real deal or not... In any case, I cant find anyone selling these coins. Has anyone come across anything which suggests whats next for this series?
