    Do you mean 157 left!

    VAT FREE SILVER SHIPPED WITH CAPITAL LOGISTICS (SEPARATE INVOICE):
    • Insured Standard Delivery - 3 to 15 days. €45.00
    Interesting but shipment fee more than twice of silvergoldbull. Still need to add 7% GST as it's not on the list of "approved ipm coins".

    But I've capitulated to the 10oz Unicorn, really can't wait any more. I've been watching it since Sept.

    Thanks for sharing, I haven't thought of emailing to get a discount. Yes, deal once. Low premium items more expensive, but their 10oz QB is much cheaper as compared to Bullionstar.

    Wow, gold Griffin! I'm missing that. Can't get it from the resale market. Only scratched ones available for sale.

    I bought it at the year of release so I had an opportunity to cherry pick a good one the local coin shop (Moscow) at a good price.

    I only started on QB Q3 last year, by then, there's no more gold Griffin for sale at my local shops. Ever since I started on QB I’ve been buying based on availability and not gold and silver price. Price don’t matter for the sought after QBs because the good ones without scratches are grabbed regardless of spot price. I bought the dragons at nearly $100 premium to spot and they sold out very quickly.

    1 oz gold QB Lion was the the 1st one gold coin of 1 oz weight in my collection. Difficult tast to get each coin because of the price. But it l was a rewarding experience.
    Now I bought 1 oz platinum ones As they are under radar by most stackers in my decent opinion...

    buying QB Pt as a set may be better when the Pt price crashed to below 400/oz , more rewarding later
    when Pt is hated, you get very good discounts

    Pt is not longer hated - it's already forgotten. :)

    These low mintage QB coins don't last forever. Last Oct, I took the plunge to buy MS quality gold dragons, paid $1300 (a significant premium since gold spot was $1200). At that time, lots of people like Jim Rogers saying gold will drop below $1000. Today, you won't be able to find any dragons for sale much less MS grade.

    Will pt drop below 400/oz when pt aisc is 900/oz? Sure, anything is possible but maybe by then we can only buy QB 2 series?

    gold is not going much lower as demand is just too much
    Pt is different as car makers would be reducing the production much further
    Oil prices is expected to go lower as well, hence other industrial metals would be lower

    buying when spot is low, does not mean that coin premium price would be low at the time
    at least you can get the set when price is low overall...
    seems like platypus year premium does not stick
    so would expect the QB Pt premium would follow as well

    The price premium don’t matter if you can’t even buy a good coin. The condition of most gold and pt QB is bad. This is why I only buy after physically checking the coin - even photos are useless. When the gold Yale was released i was interested in getting 2 pieces but could only find 1 borderline ok piece. Yes, in the meantime spot rose from $1280 to $1340. :mad:

    The same with pt unicorn, I’ve not found a single good piece even after checking through a dozen pieces.

    The coin shop employees now keep the good coins for themselves.

    Yes, bad situation for collectors ( That is why I bought platinum QBs in slabs. The same can be a good thing for gold QBs too.

    As I already bought platinum (anyway even in 2008-2009 it was not near 400 usd and much paper money was "minted" since) , I will wait palladium at 200 USD for oz. Do you think it is a good idea?

    the reason Palladium drop after hitting historical high since 2001 was Yeltsin supply the market
    Russia has been accumulating gold ever since the sanctions on Crimea...very unlikely Palladium would be unloaded to the market again, so may be it is easier to get Platinum at the low than Palladium
    once Pt bottom broke, there would be more panic selling... creating a bottom or worse lower low... as the the trend continue

    Just bought another Yale. Hope I won't regret again.

    Here's a side by side photo with the pt dragon which I bought a month ago. Curiously, the pt coin felt heavier....;)

    The qb pt is also much shinier than the 10 oz silver, if you have any silver qb coins. In fact, under sunlight, pt is shinier than gold!
