    Hello fellow stackers,
    I want to sell my silver in this platform, and I realize this is Australia/New Zealand area.

    I wanted to see if anyone has bought any silver from USA before? If so, what are some logistical issues that can arise with money transferring, customs, and shipping costs?

    I do realize having no selling history that I’ll have to send items first and get paid later to get some reviews, and I don’t have an issue for that (for high ranked members).

    Any thoughts, comments, helpful hints would be much appreciated!

    For anyone curious, here’s some of my coins I want to sell:

    2013 Perth silver snake 2 oz
    2012 Colorized Perth silver kangaroo 1 oz
    2012 kookaburra with dragon privy 1 oz
    2012 Perth silver dragon 10 oz
    2012 Colorized Perth silver dragon 5 oz
    2011 Perth koala 1 oz
    2011 Canada 1 oz grizzly
    2011 Somalia elephant 1 oz
    2011 5 oz and 1 oz silver Fiji Taku

    If you would send 1st I think you would not have any issues to sell it on this forum. For postage always use express post.It is worth the extra $.Buyer would let you know what to put in description to avoid custom issues.I hope this helps but makes me wonder why dont you try to sell them in the states.You might get more for them over there. Anyway put them up in the trading section with prices and Im sure someone will be interested.

    I've bought a few coins from USA-I had to pay extra 10percent GST on arrival. You have to take this into account when advertising on Silver Stackers site. Anyway good luck.

    Thanks for your reply. I will be attempting to sell them here also, likely on Reddit. But I have too many of them. I was thinking if I have another market, that would help me sell faster…

    Thanks for your input. I’m wondering what if I just put the face value of the coin on the customs form. That would save a lot of taxes. Face value are in AUD after all.

    There are lots of USA buyers around and should be easy to sell. Might make it easier for ya and get your money faster.

    There's a coin (and other) shop in Indiana I've bought from in the past. Owner has been great to deal with so if in your part of the USA, then maybe worth a call to discuss.
