    I can't log onto Perth Mint anymore, when I was checking 1/2 hour ago their spreads were insane like $1.20 for Silver, $40 for gold, never seen it like it and now I can't login. Anyone else have comment?

    Works fine for me.
    I just grabbed the last of the available allocated 1oz gold bars :D

    EDIT: Just checked again and they now have 16 x 1oz gold bars available for conversion from unallocated to allocated.
    And FYI, they have tons of 1kg silver bars.

    Ah. I tried to find an old screen cap of mine to confirm, but can't find it.
    That's very interesting if that's the case.

    Goldstackers website has been down for 4 or 5 days now.
    When I rang they said I could redeem my unallocated holdings over the phone but could not buy more.

    I was looking to purchase by the way.
    I missed the brief drop to $20.55AUD because of this.
    Are other dealers still selling unallocated?

    If you ring Bullion Now and can get through (during business hours) you can lock in a buy/sell price on their spot unallocated. As they are flat out it will take a few days to completely process I imagine.

    I don't think so, but ABC still have pool allocated:

    BullionMoney have stopped unallocated, among others. Goldstackers only have 1g pool silver.

    That is bad luck, I picked up 233oz of Silver for $4900 at $20.80 when it first dipped on the 16th March. Spread was about 90 cents then. You can still buy unallocated from the Perth Mint.
