    Hi all,
    New to the forum! :) And probably been buying coins for the past year, just wanted to get some opinions on whether low serial numbers are more valuable?

    Received an order for the D&D Brown snake with cert #0002 which I was extremely exited to see!

    I doubt it will make that much of a difference.

    Unless its a lunar proof with 888 =D.

    a D&D Brown snake #2 will make a big difference in price.
    i remember someone here sold a misprint brown snake for $1005.

    I know a source of low number Proof Rabbits. I bought a couple, one was number 9 the other 11.

    They had 4, 6, 7, 10.

    I was wondering where 8 was, I wanted number 8. Dealer said sometimes the perth mint will reserve numbers and pick them out for overseas markets.

    A low number will not hurt it's resale that is for sure. As too how much premium it really depends. A mate of mine snapped up a Lunar dog series with cert # 007 I am sure someone will pay little extra for that one. I know if he wasn't getting it I was :)

    Classic Projack :D

    Unfortunately my mates set would not be up for sale in any foreseeable future would have made a nice addition to your collection.

    It was the 4 coin set in box I think it was $245 or $255 either way still pricey but way cheaper than current ones.

    If it's seriously the difference between $100 and $1,000 based on the paper COA I reckon there's some guys I know who could knock up a COA any number I want. Seriously, its a given its going to happen for just a piece of paper.

    You would need to make a box also for most of them. I think it may add 10% -20% depending on the number. Under 00010 (High) and any runs ie: 1234(Med) or 8888(V High) or 7777(Med) or 65432(Med) etc...

    I think you'd just need to make the paper COA. My series 1 Lunars are just in a case that are all generic, the outer box/sleeve are all generic. The only difference between any of them is the paper COA, that's the bit you'd only need to change.

    I suspect if you took my 2000 Dragon Proof and knocked up a new COA with say the number 2000, it would go for $500+ whereas the coin as is now with number whatever, would sell for maybe $200.

    if you are thinking of selling it the best time would be just after the last release (the box jelly fish i believe) which will bring the prices of all the [email protected] up. from then on it will probably be all down hill.

    I sold 6x5gm PM gold bars with certicard 3 months ago.

    Client emailed back after receiving it questioning the authenticity of the bars because they bars where numbered:

    0000001
    0000002
    0000003
    0000004
    0000005
    0000006

    I told him he could get an immediate refund or replacement.
    Never heard from him again.

    Really kicking myself.
