    European Mint

    What is everyone's experience with The European Mint? I placed an order with them 11 days ago, & received both paid invoices 10 days ago, however, I haven't received any other information since then, I have also emailed them but no response yet. Is this a common thing?
  2. I'm new in Silver/Gold and trying to learn as much as I can. I just found out that CelticGold and EuropeanMeant seems reliable sellers, I remembered reading somewhere that when you buy from anyone of them, and shipping them to a country in EU, there's no VAT, since I've never done it, before get taxed with 21%, would like to ask if anyone has bought from them and shipped to an EU country with no VAT? This is what CelticGold said about shipping to EU country: "Do I have to pay vat and/or customs duty when my silver package will arrive in my country? No, if you find a courier company, instruct and pay your silver shipment directly to them, then this a non-commercial EU shipment exempt from import duties, VAT and not applicable to the distance selling rulings.". This is what EuropeanMint said about shipping to EU country: "Products ordered from European Mint can be delivered Tax Free to your European Union address when you book shipping with Capital Logistics. We have simplified the shipping process so that it is easy and straightforward. All shipments with Capital Logistics include tracking, signature and insurance, please consult their Terms and Conditions. The delivery time from receipt of cleared funds until delivery at your door is normally 3 to 15 business days. Please note, that all products are delivered in Estonia. European Mint responsibility ends when products are picked up by customer, Capital Logistics or any other courier.". The questions that I have are 1) CelticGold/EuropeanMint: I have to choose my own courier company, it seems to me that the courier company's reputation is also key, as the merchandise can be replaced during shipping by a no-reliable courier, did anyone had orders shipped to EU country with no VAT? which courier did you use? and what's their rate (the same as mentioned in CelticGold's site? 2) EuropeanMint: they mentioned that their responsibility ends when courier pick the merchandise, is the insurance enough to cover the merchandise if something happened during the shipping? Sorry for this dumb question, I've never done it before, it's better ask dumb questions before than be sorry after. 3) According to CelticGold's site, the silver bullion has 20% VAT even in Estonia, so is this 100g silver bar, will I be taxed with 20% VAT? Thanks for your comment/suggestion
  3. European Mint Group Orders are back for 2020! https://www.europeanmint.com/ PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY AS IT DETAILS HOW THE GROUP ORDER WORKS INCLUDING DEADLINES AND COSTS OF SHIPPING. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, PLEASE JUST ASK. GENERAL INFO ON THE GROUP ORDERS What are the group orders all about? In the UK we have to pay VAT of 20% on silver. However, there are dealers in different countries where the rate of VAT is lower or even 0% (like Estonia where the European Mint are based). But to take advantage of this 0% rate you would have to pay for international shipping, which often makes it not worthwhile. In summary the "Group Orders" are a collective buying group and we pool together to share the cost of shipping (more on the prices of this later). This saves buyers money - which is a good thing! Monthly Deliveries One of the negatives to the group orders is that to make them work properly we need to have monthly shipments. This can mean that if you place your order early into a month you might be waiting 4-5 weeks for your silver to arrive. Rest assured that everything you order will arrive, but it does take extra time. If you want to have your silver sooner, I would recommend ordering directly and having your order shipped directly to you. Why are we using The European Mint? I have been using and working with The European Mint for over 3 years now. I have always found them to be an excellent company and they often have very competitive (if not the cheapest) prices out there. I find the quality of their service to be exemplary. They do not have as wide a stock variety as some other competitors - but what they do, they do very well indeed. What do we (Backyard Bullion) get out of these group orders? We (Backyard Bullion) do not receive any commission from the use of this code with the European Mint. We are able to take advantage of group buying ourselves and have discounted shipping on items that we buy... But the main benefit to us is that we get to do a large unboxing on YouTube. This allows us to earn some money through YouTube and also helps to grow our channel and audience on YouTube. Any other financial benefits to us are done so on a voluntary basis with people who join in via "Tips" or a "voluntary service charge". These tips go towards a large Takeaway when we have processed the large deliveries! How to join the group orders? How the new group orders will work? This is a general summary of how a group order will work: 1) You place an order with the European Mint directly. 2) During the checkout process you will need to apply the following code "BYBGROUPORDER" This code gives you a massive €0.01 discount on your order - but more importantly allows the EU mint to identify group order orders. 3) Select the "Add orders to storage" option on the shipping section. 4) Message me here on the forum (or via email to [email protected]) with your order summary (ideally a copy of your invoice). 5) We (Backyard Bullion) then will offer a free service of arranging delivery of your items. We will instruct the courier to pick up your order(s), deliver them to us and we will then distribute like we have with previous group orders. 6) This service is FREE. However we will, of course, still have to bill you for shipping. The courier costs from the EU Mint to us will be the same rate as before (1.2% of the order value) and will be passed on to you as a disbursement cost. The UK postage will be the same as previous group orders and I will cover those in more detail later in this thread. So that is basically how these group orders will run! NO MORE WEEKEND ONLY ORDERS!! You can order at any time, it does not have to be on the weekends. What can I order and does it include Pre-order items? You can order anything on the EU Mint website. However, you may notice that the European Mint have a significant number of items that seem "in stock" but are in fact pre-order. These items are usually sourced to order by the EU mint and as such take about 2-3 weeks to arrive with them. So, feel free to order these items but be aware that your entire order cannot be delivered to me and subsequently to you until those orders have been received by the EU Mint. If there is something in particular that you are interested in buying and are not sure about, please ask me or the EU mint directly! Monthly deliveries & weight thresholds The way we envisage these orders working is that at the end of each month we will have a dispatch of all orders which can be fulfilled. So, if you place an order for pre-order items you may have to wait until the end of the following month for your orders. This could be as much as a 6 week wait. You have been warned. However, we will also be shipping items that are ready to go if/when certain weight/value thresholds are met. This will allow us to get orders out sooner and not have 60kg+ parcels to process! So there are no deadlines to order, you can order whenever you want. We (EU Mint) and I will keep you all as updated as possible about estimates for delivery of your order(s) General Terms and Conditions 1) I (Backyard Bullion) cannot take financial responsibility for lost/damaged items that are part of this group order. 2) You agree that I (Backyard Bullion) will act as an agent on your behalf to arrange and pay for a courier to pick up your orders. 3) Backyard Bullion can only dispatch your order upon successful delivery from the European Mint and only upon payment of a separate postage invoice. 4) Any loss or damaged item claims will be initiated and managed by me (Backyard Bullion) and any payouts for claims can only be made upon the successful payout from said claim. Backyard Bullion cannot be held financially responsible for any unsuccessful claims. 5) You are liable for any and all taxes/import duties that may be applied to your order for your home country of delivery. Delivery from me to you This part is essentially identical to previous group orders. How do I get my coins from Backyard Bullion? We will send you an invoice which will include the cost of your share of international postage (1.2% of your orders value) and your options for postage from us to you. Here is a quick guide as to what the onwards postage costs will be - this is subject to change where appropriate and is meant to give you a guide as to the costs of postage only. Please note that the maximum that you can send via Royal Mail Special delivery for a decent price is 2kg (about 55 oz). If you would like to order more than this please get in touch to discuss shipping options. ****Please also note that there is NO PRECIOUS METALS INSURANCE on any royal mail service other than Special Delivery**** What happens in the event of an issue with delivery? We (Backyard Bullion) cannot be held financially responsible for the loss/damage of any items in this group order. The European Mint has insurance for their parcels but I have never had to put a claim in and I do not know how likely it might be that something is refunded should it go missing in transit. There is an intrinsic risk in ordering from any international company but I am confident that we will be able to resolve anything that might happen. Please bear this in mind before joining the order. It is important to note the above terms and conditions and re-iterate that joining this order is at YOUR OWN RISK. I cannot be held responsible if items are lost/damaged when arriving from the European Mint. Should there be any issues I will of course endeavour to work with the dealer to solve them, but I cannot guarantee a resolution. Delivery from me to you is of a postage method of your choosing. As I have mentioned above there is no precious metals insurance for anything other than Royal Mail Special Delivery. In the event an order is missing or damaged any insurance claims will be made by me (Backyard Bullion) and refunds can only be paid upon successful completion and payout from Royal Mail. In the event that a claim by Royal Mail is denied I cannot be held financially responsible. OUR SERVICE IS FREE It is important to re-iterate that the service that we (Backyard Bullion) are offering is completely free and do not take or receive a commission for these group orders. Tips and donations You are more than welcome to make a community donation at any time if you see fit - just let us know if you want to. Any community donations will go a long way to buying a slap up takeaway for Mrs BYB every month! However, the best way you can support us would be via our Hand Poured Silver which we can offer discounts on to combine with your group order parcels. Have you got any questions? If you have any questions or would like any more information then please don't hesitate to ask here or via PM.
  4. Found out last night about European mint and I had a look to see what they had in stock. I was surprised to see the they had over 9k kangaroos in stock. Check back about an hour ago (I still had the tabs open) and ... It says "Out of Stock" now but...Demand is ridiculous!

These dates WILL NOT be changed/extended and are fixed. I do however reserve the right to extend/end the order should an extenuating circumstance arrive - but this is unlikely to happen. The delivery estimate for your orders is going to be week commencing 4th February 2019. This is an ESTIMATE only and may be subject to change. Terms and conditions for joining the Group Order Joining this group order is at your own risk.

What is the group order all about? This group order is a way to combine shipping costs for buying silver from Europe. We pay drastically less for our silver because we essentially do not pay VAT. I organise these orders so that people can get cheap silver but also so that I can unbox a large quantity of silver for my YouTube channel. It helps grow my social media, my BYB brand and my reputation within the community. This month, we are going to be using https://www.europeanmint.com/ EUROPEAN MINT PRICE MATCH GUARANTEE - EXCLUSIVE TO SILVER FORUM GROUP ORDERS The EU Mint have offered to price match the following items with GS.be (assuming that they are not already cheaper!) Any coins from the Queen's Beast Series (bullion), 10 oz & 2 oz - including the 10 oz dragon & 2 oz bull Oriental Border Britannias Perth Mint Dragon Bars Regular bullion coins from 2018 AND 2019 - a few examples are: Britannias, Maples, Philharmonicas, kangaroos, koalas, pandas, kookaburras and US eagles. Back dated years is on a case by case basis. Other coins may be price matched upon request - but no guarantee. Other items will have to be on a case by case basis. Some items cannot be price matched because of the volumes that The European Mint buys them in does not allow any room for movement in price. However for the list of coins above we are able to get the same unit price per coin. How do you place an order? The way this works is simple. You will decide what you want by looking at https://www.europeanmint.com/ and send me a private message via the forum WITH CLICKABLE HYPERLINKS PLEASE! to each item and how many you want. Please only message me via The Silver Forum only. I will send you a screen dump of the basket and total on their website and then I will send you another screen dump from www.transferwise.com showing the conversion and total in £. You then send the funds directly to me via Banks transfer and as soon as I get the funds I will place the order. Your order is then locked in and confirmed, you cannot cancel after this stage. WE WILL ONLY BE ORDERING IN STOCK ITEMS - ANYTHING ON PRE-ORDER WILL NOT BE ALLOWED. This is to avoid any delays after the order closes. When to order and pay Backyard Bullion? I will only be placing orders on the weekends and any funds must be with me before 6pm. I will not be able to place orders mid week unless there are extenuating circumstances. This is simply because I am a busy person and organising and keeping track of these orders is difficult. Feel free to send me your shopping lists during the week but understand that I will not be able to lock it in until the weekend - this is just the way it has to be so be aware that prices may fluctuate in the run up to the weekend. I would rather do it like this than potentially forget or miss recording orders and making mistakes. Deadline The order will close on Sunday 13th January 2019 @ 6pm UK time. You will need to have got funds to me by then if you would like to order anything. Should there be any delays in this it will mean the group order will be delayed and I will communicate any changes out to people via this thread. Shipping costs & Share of international postage. The European Mint has offered a very generous shipping quote for this order - capped at 1.2% of the total value of the order, e.g. If you spend €500 your shipping is €6. How do I get my coins from Backyard Bullion? Once the order has been delivered to me you will receive an "onwards postage invoice" which will include onwards postage and packaging from me to you. We will sort out the onwards postage and packaging once the order has been completed. Onwards shipping is at your choice and risk via Royal Mail. It is at this stage that we will sort out the share of international postage (if any applies). Here is a quick guide as to what the onwards postage costs will be - this is subject to change where appropriate and is meant to give you a guide as to the costs of postage only. Please note that the maximum that you can send via Royal Mail Special delivery for a decent price is 2kg (about 55 oz). If you would like to order more than this please get in touch to discuss shipping options. ****Please also note that there is NO PRECIOUS METALS INSURANCE on any royal mail service other than Special Delivery**** What happens in the event of an issue with delivery? As I said in the disclaimer at the top of this thread, I cannot be held financially responsible for the loss/damage of any items in this group order. The European Mint has insurance for their parcels but I have never had to put a claim in and I do not know how likely it might be that something is refunded should it go missing in transit. There is an intrinsic risk in ordering from any international company but I am confident that we will be able to resolve anything that might happen. Please bear this in mind before joining the order. It is important to note the above terms and conditions and re-iterate that joining this order is at YOUR OWN RISK.

Should there be any issues I will of course endeavour to work with the dealer to solve them, but I cannot guarantee a resolution. Delivery from me to you is of a postage method of your choosing. As I have mentioned above there is no precious metals insurance for anything other than Royal Mail Special Delivery. In the event an order is missing or damaged any insurance claims will be made by me (Backyard Bullion) and refunds can only be paid upon successful completion and payout from Royal Mail. In the event that a claim by Royal Mail is denied I cannot be held financially responsible. Final Thoughts Is it worth it to join? Yes - buying silver from Europe is the single cheapest way of buying silver. Doing it as part of this group order is cheaper still. Some of their coins may be more expensive (the more collectable type coins) but certainly not by much. Another reason to join the more you buy the cheaper it gets for everybody! Additionally you will be helping support my YouTube channel because being able to unbox a large quantity of silver for my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/backyardbullion is always a fun and popular video and it helps grow my brand and business. Does Backyard Bullion charge for this service? I do not charge for you to join this group order - but we do ask you to consider contributing funds in the form of a "tip" or "Service charge". We ask for just £1 (but as many of you frequently do please feel free to donate whatever you feel appropriate! Another great way to say thank you is to purchase my Hand Poured silver. I will happily offer discounts on my items to factor in the combined postage! I will not be offended or angry if you choose not to pay the "tip" or buy my hand poured silver - but bear in mind that proceeds from the tip help feed Mrs BYB a slap up takeaway and keeping her interested in all the hard work of doing these group orders... For those who are interested, our takeaway of choice for this order will be another GIANT Chinese! Combining postage with other BYB items Of course, if you want to combine other orders with this group order we would be more than happy to offer discounts on our hand poured silver. Have you got any questions? If you have any questions or would like any more information then please don't hesitate to ask here or via PM. In the meantime - get me your shopping lists! Backyard Bullion
