    Is there anywhere or dealers in Australia who will stock the Queen`s Beasts no PBC is dead?
    I have all till now and don`t want to have to buy from the EU as postage is expensive.

    There are a number of dealers in Singapore that carry QB silver usually 1-4 months after they are launched but at a higher premium, especially for the 10 oz that I buy. I get my 10 oz from lpm hk. The delivery fee to singapore is about $30 for 100 ounces. I had also purchased from silver gold bull ca, which has a slightly higher pricing but they help you handle gst exemption for bullion. For qb gold and pt I buy locally as they are usually in bad condition if you order online.

    the price is higher than two britannias
    28.76 x 2 = 57.52

    Yale is selling for 62.01

    if for the same price, I would rather go for the 2 oz mouse bu 2020

    Not into the 2 oz silver coins, but the golden Yale is very pretty, prettier than the bull, falcon, unicorn and even the dragon. Somehow, the pox and horns stands out in gold. I think it might be a winner in the future as it is the only one of its kind while there are dozens of rats (almost every mint carries Lunars and they repeat 12 years).

    I have emailed Swan Bullion here in Perth and they are looking into possibly stocking them. They didn't stock them before because Perth Bullion had them but of course, they have since folded

    Try Swan Bullion here in Perth, they are ordering in the Silver 2oz and the 10oz (when available) for me at a competitive price which may fluctuate up or down slightly depending on the spot price and quantity they order

    Unless it's really low premium where you don't mind the visual appearance at all, I won't buy anything from any singapore dealer online.

    It’s the best option I’ve seen so far from dealers that actually deliver to Aus. Their delivery charge is higher than SD or Apmex, but the coin cost is lower so it makes the transaction cheaper.

    I pulled the trigger and ordered a couple tubes of Mortimers from BullionStar about an hour ago. And with the sudden spike of spot price thanks to the ECB decision, timing was perfect :D

    Got my White Lions in the post today, very happy with how it looks in hand! I’m actually a fan of the minimalist angle, and the detailing on the mane is good. Looking forward to getting the gold version soon!

    Postage was $61, sent via FedEx. Definitely on the pricey side, so will only use BullionStar again if they have something I really want that I can’t find elsewhere. Dispatched Saturday, arrived today so very fast. Very securely wrapped, sent in the mint tube.

    No problems with import, since I only ordered 11 coins so well under the $1000 threshold.

    I’ve ordered the gold version from SD Bullion, their postage is quite a bit cheaper but also quite fast.

    Are the Queen's Beasts serie collectables? I purchased the Yale of Beaufort without knowing anything about the collectible aspect of those coins. Typically it seems the premium is much higher when coins are sold for collectors.

    Can someone explain what I can expect with these coins, I have no knowledge about the price increase for numismatic bullions.
