    They are beautiful. I enquired with the US based distributor that I won't promote and they said that to do business with overseas they would require circa $170,000 for a transaction.

    That is ridiculous and I suggested they should get more realistic.
    They aren't in my recommended list of distributors.

    I'm sure an Australian distributor will stock the silver ones once they catch on.

    When you buy direct from The Royal Mint and import to Australia the checkout deducts the 20% VAT once you add your shipping details.

    They despatch quickly but shipping takes a while from the U.K. - about 3 weeks last time I used them.

    In last couple of years the best looking coin
    Would go for silver
    The question is what is a mintage?

    I don't really care about the mintage and investment potential. I just love the design. I hope that Perth bullion also carry the 1/4 oz gold and the silver when it comes.
