Austria 4 Ducat Gold Coin

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm seriously considering this coin as my first decent sized gold coin.

I have 5 gold coins now but nothing bigger than 1/20oz.

Does anybody know off the top of their head, the cheapest source for these?

Thanks

I got mine from HGM but you'd have to wait till they get some in.. Or try atkinsons

 

Just be aware these are re-strikes

Thanks Dune.

Can't be waiting around for HGM to get some in, although I realise this would probably be the cheapest method. It could be months though no?

Atkinsons don't seem to have any.

Yes I'm aware these are re-strikes, I have had a read up on them, but I appreciate the reminder.

I just like the coin design very much.

Goldline £360.50 but out of stock, CoinInvest £376.67 in stock but also +£1095 postage :(

Thanks Barney, wow that's a high postage charge, does it come in a limo? [emoji1]

I'll keep an eye on Goldline & HGM for stock.

Do you want a mint one?

If not, I have a bullion grade one from HGM which I can do for £355 delivered (my original cost + Special Delivery)

I want to get one of these too, although I'll have to hold off for a month or two as it's 2-3 times my monthly PM budget. I see there's a new edition that CoinInvest are selling from this week, it may be a little more expensive than elsewhere but it's a beautiful coin.

 

£355 delivered is a great price by the way, would have been very tempted myself a few weeks ago before my last purchase.

4 Ducat £380 at chards

 

http://taxfreegold.co.uk/1915austrian4ducats.php

 

For the same sort of money have a look at the Mexican 20 peso. 

 

Same sort of weight but smaller and thicker but the design is beautiful, its the mayan calendar.

 

Got both and I prefer the mexican gold - looks like gold treasure should look :)

The peso is a lovely design too. I like the ducats thinness though, it's like pirate treasure. I have a couple of 1 ducat coins, I've found they are one of the best value small coins you can find so good for 'small but regular' stackers.

Danny - sovereigns not in the frame?! Or a kangaroo? Plenty nice fractional kangaroos..

Hi Lindeman, yes they are very much in the frame at some point, I just decided I want this to be my first reasonable sized coin.

Hi MZ, I must admit I did fancy the brand new re strike, not sure why.

Let me have a little think about it, but thanks for such a superb offer.

How can you tell the difference between an original and a restrike on the Ducat 4.  I have 2 of them and one is quite worn.

Danny - did you eventually get one, or still pondering it?

I am soooo frustrated - thought I had nailed down late night offers on two nice Austrian gold coins - a 1912 10 coronas and a 1915 re strike 1 ducat, but I got outbid by 2 quid or so all in the last 10 seconds on both, to the same guy for both. I need to improve my bidding strategy or my typing speed !! They went for £100 and £112 respectively. It had been silent for 4 hours in the countdown, so I was too complacent. Probably someone on here taught me a lesson....

Rather than forcing worry & pressure on yourself - why don't you just use a eBay bid sniper program to place your bid for you in the last few seconds.

 

I have been using goofbays bid sniper for several years without any real problems, occasionally it may miss one item.  

But it does it all for the grand price of £FREE :)

 

https://www.goofbid.com/free_ebay_sniper.html

 

Certainly saves you staying up to the wee small hours for items your especially want to win

 

Be wary you have got to give them your eBay user ID and password.  

So i have a bidding ID just for snipe bidding only.  It is not linked to my selling eBay ID.

Also make sure your associated PayPal account password is different to your eBay password just should the worst ever happen with goofbay and it gets hacked or similar.

If you still want a ducat, Goldline have them for about £105 delivered. 10 coronas are currently out of stock.

Thanks all for the bidding tips! May look into those. Superman - yes, that was my alternative source - cheaper today, but still none in stock. Ducat down to £97 tho before postage.

Still thinking about it!
