Buying Silver In Australia
« on: April 15, 2013, 04:31:49 PM »
Where are people in Australia (in particular Melbourne) buying their silver coins? I have looked at a few online bullion sites but the spreads are pretty savage.

G'day John,

I've used KJC Bullion in Sydney and found them to be very professional and efficient.  I'm in Canberra so my orders were sent via courier!  Their website is at https://www.kjc-gold-silver-bullion.com.au/

I'd recommend them to someone on the hunt for gold and silver!

All the best.

Hi Guys,
I can personally recommend the following:
1)Ainslie Bullion (Qld)(good for getting Ag in the post)
2)Adelaide Exchange Jewellery (SA and Hobart)
3)Perth Mint (I avoid this as is government and wants all your information)
4)Mint Coins(Across the road from the Perth mint, Peter will be able to sell you what you want cheaper than the Perth mint and does not insist that any questions are answered.

Me to in WA - Serpentine/Jarrahdale area so hi guys!
Are you aware of WA Survival Skills Assoc?

Hi John,

There's a coin show on this weekend, at Malvern Town Hall, you might get lucky there:

Otherwise, I usually visit either I.S. Wright in Lonsdale Street, or W. Davis & Son in the Manchester Unity building in Collins Street.

Avoid Downies, they're too expensive!

Good luck,

Bungo

I would suggest the Perth mint if you are looking at buying large quantities such as 1kg bars but I don't like the spreads on coins. 
If you are looking for junk silver, some can be found on ebay if you buy in bulk.  I think this is one of the best places to sell as buyers seem to be willing to pay well over spot in most cases, especially for 1966 round 50cent pieces. 

You could also try the International coin and banknote show coming up in October at Etihad stadium. 
I often attend the Melbourne ANDA coin show and I'm sure many of the dealers would have bullion on hand.

Hey John, Which way did you end up going? Online or a bricks and mortar store?

If you went online, who did you find good value?

In Melbourne "Gold Stackers" on Collins St are great, if ordering online I like perthbullion and goldstackers for coins and Perth Mint for bars.
I'm not affiliated with any of them but I have used them all for a few years now.

I've recently discovered ABC Bullion in Sydney as well.  Some of their pricing seems pretty competitive vs some others but I have yet to pull the trigger and order anything from them.  I can't comment on their service personally but they seem to be rated well on google.
