Bar or Coin - Help :-(

Recommended Posts

Hi to all.

Just a quickie.

I’m a little confused about silver coins and bars.  I’m hearing that bars are cheaper to buy due to less premium and that makes sense, though when I’m looking at buying one from example Silver to go – this is the part I don’t understand?

500g = 16 t oz I believe, so if a bar is £295.28 and is supposed to be cheaper but compared to coins = 15.72 x16 t oz = £251.52?

Am I missing something here?  Would like to buy bars though not if they are more than cheap coins for the same weight?

Any advice please?

You are comparing probably the lowest premium item with a higher premium coin-bar.

Also silver bars from the EU are not vat free so coins actually work out cheaper.

If you want cheap bars, become a Silver Member and buy on the forum when they come up. You have to be quick though. 😉

So true - if cheap ( or excellent value ) they will be sold before non-silver members even get to know about it.

Have been considering 10oz coins from eu distros. Worth checking them out, postage is a factor there but the vat is lower so the per oz proce can still be very appealing, especially if you are buying alot.

 Start investing in Queens beasts  or valiant 10oz coins lol 

 That's the way to go 

 If only I knew somebody selling them lol 

 

Shipping isn't cheap with any of them (although still better than buying from a British shop with 20% VAT), but...

If you look around (cant find it currently) there is a discount code for shipping from the European mean  think it is courtesy of ByB.  Drops postage by 50%  still alot but if you are buying in bulk it is likely worth it.
