    there are 2 options
    USPS approx USD $30 and UPS private courier option was approx USD $60 .Both options are for up to 1kg in weight. I have had previous orders with them and had bad experiences with USPS so I went UPS this time.
    The Miners Go Deeper coin is still to be minted as the Golden State Mint had to shut its doors last week to allow staff time off to deal with the big hurricane that was close to Florida last week. I will add some fractional silver silver coins to my order before they send it.

    With thanks sodl. Pricing not bad. some US dealers are charging both their postage costs, plus a fee per ounce too.

    I have previously bought a number of tubes of fractional silver (1/4oz,1/10oz and 1/2oz) from GSM as they are very cheap IMO as compared to prices of fractional silver available/minted in Australia.

    ^ A while ago I bought a 1kg Kookaburra. It is very nice but in hindsight I regret buying it coz it stacks terrible in my SDB.

    I know many like Dragons. I also know there is a flood of coins and rounds with Dragons on them.

    One of my friends in Russia bought this silver statue made by one Hong Kong company I think.
    Was lucky enough to make a photo of this 6 oz of 925 silver little masterpiece.
