  1. I've just purchased a monster box of 200 silver 2oz Queen's Beasts Unicorns (condition “new”) from for EUR 7040. I foolishly did not think to compare the price to buying 200 “loose” coins (i.e. putting 200 in the quantity field on the order form) - which it appears would have worked out even cheaper by about EUR 300. I just assumed that the cheapest option would be a single boxed order. And when the package arrived the two plastic straps around the box had come apart – they appeared to have cleanly separated at the glue joint, so I cannot be sure the box content is as it was delivered from the mint. So now I am not sure what the benefit of buying a monster box is. Is there normally a premium on a monster box vs. the same quantity of coins ordered “loose”? When ordering a standard quantity of coins (e.g. 500 x 1oz), is a monster box sometimes sent anyway – I would have thought this was the most convenient packing option for the dealer? What do dealers actually do with these boxes? Do they open them to confirm contents or to cherry-pick the best condition coins and substitute other new coins in their place? Is it anticipated that a new monster box purchased from a dealer is always as sealed from the mint? I notice that this dealer is currently advertising a box of US Eagles as “sealed” but none of the others specifically say “sealed”. Are the plastic straps around a Royal Mint box the plain white ones as mine were or should they have come with security marking? Do the straps sometimes come apart during shipping as mine appear to have done? Is there a benefit to having a monster box when selling the coins back to a dealer? Without an unbroken security seal, I can't see why there would be. I have no complaints with this dealer - I am happy with the standard of service, and the quality of the coins that I have spot-checked looks OK. And I have saved a lot on the VAT by buying from Europe. I am just unsure if I made the best purchasing decision . . . . Many thanks. M.
  2. So due to the upcoming Brexit date I decided to take the plunge and get 400 oz of QB unicorns (fav as other have is Scottish) from Unfortunately I have no self control, and was like a child in a sweet shop that knows there ain’t gonna be anymore (we’ll tax free) sweets. Hmm, I like that one, oh and that one, oh my goodness just look at that one. Short story as well as the monster box I also got a further 150 oz of silver on its way. Anyone else doing a pre Brexit panic buy?
