Anyone score anything from ColonialAcres sale? They had a few 1oz Canadian wildlife Moose for 28 cents. An error that they probably won't honor but worth a shot I guess.

Was gonna pull trigger on something but didn't want to pay shipping.

I've just done everyone a favour here. Placed an order with SGB, so prices will probably drop next week. Then you can buy it cheaper...lol

The new Privateer White Whale round is available at SGB now, but the 5% discount does not apply to rounds, only silver coins.
Discount canceled. Only for 80% and 90 % :)
for sale : koala 2011, panda 2015 & monkey 2016 (39 CAD each) + shipping
kookaburra 2013, 2014, 2015 & koala 2012 (36 CAD each) + shipping
Many other bullion coins (pandas,kooks, lunars,....) and bars contact if you want the link

Heh, I'm at about %90 of my goal for this year so the smack down should be imminent.

Too bad some of you missed the 5% off sale at SGB. (Didn’t think they’d make much profit with 5% off on orders of $250 plus free shipping.) Guess I was just lucky to catch the “mistake.”

TGB has a 5% off sale this weekend, but minimum purchase is $2,000. Seems to work for silver only. Coupon code: C1BUJ8D4SM96

BullionPeople still has the best price for Queen's Beast Dragon at $57.57.

Tried the coupon for TGB on a few products but it didn't work. Where did you get it?

I just tried it again, and it still works. You have to be logged in before it allows you to use the coupon. Were you logged in when you tried it?

Anyone know of a good place to sell a 1oz Palladium Maple coin in the Vancouver area? I checked a few places and they are buying way under spot.

If someone here wants to buy locally i can help you save some cash as you wouldn't have to pay tax on top of the premium.

I believe Bay Precious Metals is the authorized dealer for these. Odd considering they're not Canadian but that's what I recall hearing and they're the only company that I've ever seen selling them.

Search "1/10 Gold Cougar" on ebay.com and you'll find them. They only ship to USA though.

They come in an assay card and look amazing. I wish I bought some of the 1/10 wolves when they were on sale a few months back.

Is this a good deal for pandas? Pandas
Best pricing at the moment.

Compared to TBP, Colonial Acres, JM Bullion, Apmex and Provident, TGB's pricing is currently the lowest (sheet price)

Personally, I think I'm over the pandas and lunars. Not sure how bright a future they'll have. Mintages are just too high.

REALLY attractive coin though. Maybe a poor investment (time will tell) but nice to have a couple in the collection for bragging rights!
