2011 Australian Koala 1kg Silver Bullion Coin - Perth Mint

Here we have a very nice piece, the 2011 Australian Koala 1kg 999 Silver Bullion Coin by the Perth Mint in Perth, Western Australia. These are currently the only 1kg coin available for purchase from the perth mint website, and it is absolutely stunning!Purchased for AU$1,252 in July 2011, approximately 32.151 ounces You would need to contact the Perth Mint directly to discuss your options, depending on your locality etc, personally I would phone them and ask them what their procedure is for buying silver from you.. Silver doesn't generate cash flow, so you'd only make money with it if you sold it at a higher price than which you purchased it. You could try local precious metals/coin dealers too, but be careful not to get ripped off! They're currently selling 10oz for AUD 441.00 so it's defintely a great investment (Fully aware buy-back price is a lot lower). Considering you bought them for AUD $357.00 roughly six months ago

Buying Gold Bars vs Buying Gold Coins

Buying Gold Coins Bars Bullion : When buying gold bullion it is important to know the main reason for buying. If the main goal of buying gold is to preserve your wealth it is recommended when buying gold coins or buying gold bars that they are closest to spot price as possible. Spot price is the price what one troy ounce of pure gold is selling for at the time you buy. A troy ounce is equal to 31.1034768 grams. When it comes to gold coins you are not only paying for the gold but the manufacturing of the coin. This is why gold coins are usually more expensive than gold bars. The good thing about gold coins is they are usually easier to sell than bars. When buying gold coins it is recommended that you buy coins minted by a mint that's been around for a while and has a good reputation. Some other things that are recommended is that you buy pure gold coins and minted in the country you intend to sell it, if not in the mint closest to the country where you intend to sell. Pure gold should say 99.99 or 999.99 and also be 24 Karat. Some gold mints will have coins with the amount of gold stated in addition an alloy of silver and copper to produce a more wear-resistant gold coin. These coins will be 22 Karat and will be less than 99.99 pure. When buying gold bars you usually get more gold for your money compared to buying coins. If you buy gold bars it is recommended only buy 999.99 (24 Karat) bars. It is important when you buy gold that you get physical possession of the gold. This way you don't have to worry about any company going out of business or any government seizing your gold for any reason. Buying gold bullion is one of the best way to preserve your wealth from inflation of a currency or any other economic downturns a society might face.

I also prefer to invest in coins over bars but if you are looking to get the most gold for your money in a uniform form, bars are the way to go.If you buy bars, take physical possession, & have them drilled to make sure they aren't just gold-plated.I agree with the coins. Mainly because even if the metals market does plunge the coin will possibly have more value due to it's historical, and rarity value. You pay more for the coin sorta like a little insurance policy on your gold. But that's just my $0.02

Perth Mint Australia - Silver Bullion Unboxing

I've received a shipment of silver today and decided to share the unboxing with my viewers. The package includes 2 units of 99.9% Pure Silver from the Perth Mint Australia. Purchased at $357.00 per bar in late February 2011 .Investment in precious metals will always be worth something, even when money is diluted so much that everything costs a fortune, silver and gold will remain salable at a nice amount! :) The way prices are going, it'll be a very worth while investment! :) 4 months ago silver was selling at $26 per ounce, now it's $36, so things are looking u,The problem I have with the Perth mint is that they are too expensive !  They must love their metal more than the rest of the mints around the world

Cheap Silver

Silver bullion, silver collection, 90% half dollars, 40% half dollars, halves, silver, half dollars, cheap silver, silver bars, the federal reserve, precious metals check small rural banks if you can...a friend of mine picked up 3 rolls of halves at a small rural bank in south Georgia...every freaking coin was silver...most were 90% franklins and there were some 40% kennedys...probably some old timer had a bunch of them at home and decided to cash them in not realizing the silver content...smaller banks probably don't cycle through halves much so they probably keep what customers cash in to have some on hand...just a tip! If the dollar collapses, people like us that have gold and silver may end up saving the economy my keeping it going. If there is enough of it to spend into the economy it may be possible to sustain everything until all is rebuilt.

Silver Collection 2011 - Bullion Bars Coins Jewelry - Stacking For The Future

For a beginner your best bet is to get from a reputable company like Kitco or Ampex. Also a few of the big refineries sell public like sunshine mint they are pretty good. You'll pay less if you freelance buy (like off people around town, or ebay. But you also open yourself up to get burned so i highly dont recommend that unless you know what you are doing. There are plenty of people out there who will sell you a German silver bar and you will be none the wiser

I've been collecting silver for about 6 months. My collection ranges from 50% coins up to 99.99% silver maples. I've also purchased a lot of sterling silver jewellery. I'm not sure buying sterling was a good idea, but I figure silver is silver. Anyhow, the SLV market recently peaked at $48.50 per ounce, but currently resides around $35. However, if you look on eBay, physical silver trades a lot higher than the SLV. I've been reading information provided by Sons of Liberty (link provided below) According to these folks, silver is an incredibly undervalued metal and should increase substanially in the months to come. This group goes on to say that silver has been manipulated by a group called "The Pilgrims," for over a hundred years. If this is true, then silver definitely could make some leaps and bounds. I'll confess thay my true intention is to make money purchasing silver. I've bought during the dips and have held onto everything hoping that silver will trade above the $50 high reached back in the early 1980's. It seems like a plausible scenario if you look at the historical data. Furthermore, I've been informed that the banks that hold physical silver are lending it out at a ratio of around 20:1, which makes sense considering the economic collapse of the US banking system during 2008.

Making a Silver Ingot at Home : MELTING AND CASTING

Melting my sterling silver scrap with a propane torch and silica melting dish,,,and casting into a homemade wooden ingot mold. You can find Borax in the laundry detergent aisle of any grocery store. The one-time-use mold was made from poplar wood and everyday wood glue. My results were even better than expected. Thanks for viewing.Borax helps the silver "flow" (liquefy) and traps the slag/dirt. I use about 1/2 teaspoon for every troy ounce of silver I'm melting, but it's not exact. Once you heat the silver red hot, sprinkle the borax on it and continue torching until the metal melts.The silver melted in this video was STERLING. The copper/tin/nickel will NOT separate from the silver by melting it....you would need acids to separate them. You really can't use too much BORAX. I used about a teaspoon for the silver in this video. If the silver looks dull or you see things floating on top of it (slag) when it's melted,,,add a little more borax to it.

Propane/Oxy should be more than sufficient. I actually re-melted the bar I cast in this video, along with some other scrap I found to make a larger 3 ounce bar (using another wooden mold), but I had to use an Oxy/Mapp torch to get it to melt (propane alone wasn't hot enough for that much silver),,,but that Oxy/Mapp at 5000+ degrees sure was!

China encourages Silver Bullion for investment

China has introduced its first-ever investment opportunity for silver bullion. The bars are available in 500 grams, 1 kilogram, 2 kilograms and 5 kilograms with a purity of 99.9 percent.I know silver is not a perfect investment, but China and India buying silver makes it a totally different market than 20 or 30 years ago. Plus with all the world devaluing their paper currencies to cheapen their exports, silver is bound to go up. This is not 1988 anymore. You must deal with the current reality. The Chicago Mercantile exchange and JP Morgan can't suppress the price of physical silver forever and new stockpiles will dry up as new demand increases. China is basically saying.... "Get out of the US dollar".

1989 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf (Commemorative Proof)

Here I (attempt to) showcase these beautiful collector coins, although they have such a brilliant mirror finish that it's very tricky to properly capture them :o) What's interesting is that each box is made of actual maple, and each one is distinctive since the wood grain and patterns are rather unique. Mintage: 30,000 (very few for sale anymore)

Silver Bullion : How to Avoid Buying Fake Silver

Here are some of the things you need to know in order not to get fooled when buying silver bullion, #1: It needs to say the weight, #2. ...it needs to have the purity, 3, buy from a reputable mint.Try testing the weight of the rounds first on a good troy ounce or gram scale that measure out multiple decimals(A jeweler or coin shop probably has one if you don't). If the weight is a lot more or a lot less that the weight stamped on the piece, do further tests. Also before you do a test that would mark up the coin, look at wording. If it doesn't have ".999 silver" or the weight in troy ounces or grams, try more tests. Better to know now then find out at a desperate time :)

Tips to avoid buying fake silver. Look at these silver duds and see who makes them so you are not fooled. If you have purchased silver and discovered that it is a fake, please make a video response to show the world. Let's expose the silver thieves together!

Nothing could be further from the truth. Originally, our paper currency was a receipt for gold or silver held on deposit.

What is Junk Silver - How to Buy Junk Silver

In Gold We Trust - Coins, Bullion & Scrap Gold Calculator and prices of Junk Silver CoinsInformation about Junk Silver, what is junk silver and what is the best way to buy junk silver coins such as old silver dollars, morgan silver dollars etc I re-evaluated my bars, rounds vs. junk silver & I own both. As you mentioned the quarter, dimes, half dollars are universally recognized currency. Its a bonus that they have a silver content which give it even more value. Although to someone who does not recognize a metal content it still has its face value, if you go to a shop with a 100/oz bar its just a hunk of metal to the average person. Its good to have more minted coins vs bars, rounds...etc

Investing in silver. Junk Silver or .999 Fine Silver? By David Morgan. junk silver is the easiest way to get silver for cheap and it doesn't carry a premium price like Silver Eagles. Just go buy a few dimes.everyone should own a mix of junk silver. I have nickels, dimes, quarters and dollars. I'm looking for more small denomination junks silver for a SHTF scenario and need small barter money.I buy junk and 999 fine, they are both winners.Diversification is good idea even if it's just in your silver. One point many stackers miss is the need to 'make change'. If all one has is 1 oz. and the other one 'say's sorry no change' and one really needs the product one leaves money on the table. Also the distinction between .999 and .9999 is lost on most people. If the price is 1 oz. most people are going to shave some off and give it back to you if it's .9999. They'll just say tough @#$!.

Junk silver coins ? Buy while they call it as junk.

ACQUIRING AND COLLECTING 90% JUNK SILVER COINS? One of my favorite things in life is collecting coins and I love collecting the 90% silver junk coins. Since silver's demonetization, silver has been junk, not precious. So they call these 90 percent US silver coins as junks. Because they were so cheap. Silver Dime bag was few bugs before. People think silver as industrial metal. But it was not hundred year ago. Silver was monetary metal and subsidiary coins not junk silver coins.

Buying silver coins vs. buying silver bars

David Morgan discusses when and how to buy silver coins and silver bars. It all depends on the size of your portfolio and individual preferences Start with coins, then bars. This is so true. Coins from the perth mint at the moment are $45.56 per ounce for a basic coin and they will re buy them from you for $34.01 thats $11.55 over spot per ounce. If you buy a kilo bar it costs $1173.29 or $36.49 per ounce and they buy them back from you for $1042.67 or $32.43 per ounce. Thats only $4.06 above spot. If you buy the perth mint coins you pay an extra $7.49 p/o over the bars. 1kg bars are the way to go if you want to make more money on the SALE of your silver in Ausi.

The world largest gold coin

Making of the world's largest gold coin, a 2007 Canadian $ 1,000.000 Maple Leaf. Right now this is worth $5,336,941.
This coin breaks all records: It weighs a staggering 100 kilos and measures 53 cm in diameter. But the most remarkable thing about this impressive coin, which cannot even be lifted by two men, is that it is made exclusively of the purest, finest and most refined gold: 999.99/1000 gold.
Although this coin is really cool, its just WAYYY too big for anyone to really want to own it (those who can afford it). I mean, you need 3 people to lift it!! The Canadian mint was better off making a 1 kilo size, it would have been much more profitable for them.Initially, only one was to be made and it wasn't meant to be sold. They did it just to showcase the fact that "hey world, look what we can do". But a few people approached them and said they would want to own them. So they made 5 of them. I just wish they made some sort of glass casing around the coin so everyone's hand prints wouldn't be all over the coin. Otherwise, I love this coin and would love it even more if I can own it.
