    Hi Guys and Girls,

    I hope you are all keeping safe.... and adding those ounces to your stack

    Something a little different from me. I have been fortunate enough to have picked up a few of these treasured Perth Mint 2020 1/10th Oz Gold Kookaburras coins

    These have now been sold out at Australia's authorised dealer and can only be purchased overseas or on the secondary market as us mugs down under were only allocated 1,500 out of a Limited Mintage of 15,000

    So this is a Limited mintage coin, sold out at the dealer and now for the first time by me is been put to a possible auction.
    My fellow stackers you can have a chance to pick one of these coins up for a starting bid of $1, Yes $1 the auction start will be for $1. I am not even going to ask for spot on this high premium coin

    I have received a lot of messages asking if i would sell these coins to fellow stackers as it appears quite a few stackers have missed out.

    This is a good opportunity to see what if any premium this coin currently commands on the secondary market in our very own little community here on SS

    The condition of me placing this auction is for this thread to receive a minimum of 100 Likes, Feel free to comment as you like below as it will keep the thread relevant and active

    Once 100+ likes are achieved i know that there is some interest and the auction will be then be posted up and set with a $1 Start + Postage:D

    If for some reason 100 likes are not achieved, in approx 1 weeks time the thread will be pulled down:confused:

    Thank you for taking the time to read and hopefully participate as i really would like to see how this goes

    For me too:D

    I wanted to offer something back and a little different to what is been listed as i might have been a little greedy with my Buzz's of late:p

    Your most welcome, lets get those likes and hopefully bids going when the auction is listed:)

    I thought so too:cool:

    Rules will be simple
    Auction will run for no longer then 1 week
    Start Bid of $1
    Anti snipe bids, as i dont think i have ever held one that way and this is about firsts:) And having fun
    Postage at cost and risk of successful bidder but i have found Prepaid satchel are safest and best.. I have never lost or had a missing parcel... where is the touch wood button:)

    Thank you all for the likes that are coming though guys. I expected some interest but this is alot more than i expected in the first hour of listing
    Keep it up and i might have to start the auction tonight:)

    Fine, Fine all this peer pressure lol:)
    Plus i dont want you to be disappointed bubblebobble2

    Auction is live now live and up and running like good old Forrest Gump, Run Forrest Run:D

    Now the auction Terms:
    You are bidding on 1 x 1/10 Oz Gold 2020 Kookaburra Coin
    The coin is in Mint condition and is in its original Capsule
    Bid Start is $1
    Min Bid increments are to be made in whole dollars
    No edited bids as they will be Null and Void, just dont do ito_O

    Postage is at cost / risk of winning bidder but i will only ship the coin via small prepaid Red standard or Yellow express satchel as i have 100% successful track record using them... no lost or missing items plus i can smother the coin in bubble wrap etc and not worry

    Auction end date is Wednesday 05.08.2020 at 9pm EST Time.. Sydney time

    Anti sniping rule applies with a 5 minute extension from the time of the last successful bid
    Highest bid time stamped at 9.00 is accepted if the highest bid came in at 8.56pm then the auction will be extended by 5 minutes to 9.01pm and so on as per the anti snipe rule. We know how this works
    Any and all disputes will be resolved via PM by me, my decision is final. But i do not envision issues arising as this should be a lot of fun for all involved

    Postage Costs are
    Red satchel with tracking $9
    Yellow Express satchel with tracking $12
    SOD $3 Extra if required

    I will combine the postage costs with other items that i may list for sale / auction in the event that you are the winning bidder and you are interested in purchasing other items that i list

    If i have missed anything i reserve the right to edit and add but the Start Bid and Auction stated end date will not be edited or changed

    Happy Bidding
    Who wants to start it
