    Sale on Silver at the BW State Mint in Germany

    The Baden-Württemberg State Mint (here in Stuttgart, Germany) has silver coins for sale until 12 May for a little over spot plus shipping.

    http://www.staatlichemuenzenbw.de/ak...zhandwerk.html

    The coins are .80375 oz of .999AG selling for €12.95 each (INCLUDES the VAT of €2.07.)

    At .73 Euros to the Dollar that makes the cost right now $17.74 each (coins are valued at $14.64.) Shipping to These United States is about 20 USD, unless your order is over €200 (approximately $274.) I just ordered two, one each for my boys. I'll probably be ordering more at this deal, I just wanted to test the 'system' and make sure I could order them and have them shipped to me ( I live in Germany, but am using a US credit card to my local address.)

    Re: Sale on Silver at the BW State Mint in Germany

    When I was in germany from 1974 to 1977 the german coin shops had junk boxes and tubs of american coins. I bought all of the half cents, large cents, indian cents, early mint marked lincolns, half dimes, shield nickels, buffalo nickels, war nickels and all the silver dimes that I could get at ten coins for a mark. Quarter size and up were individually priced. At that time there were also silver german five mark coins in circulation. Check it out - there should be shops in any sizeable town. siegfried schlagrule

    Re: Sale on Silver at the BW State Mint in Germany

    most of the time i was there you could get 2.5 to 2.64 marks to the dollar so i was buying many old american coins for less than face value. At 2.50 one mark was worth 40 cents. I was buying ten nickels and ten dimes and sometimes clad quarters at ten coins for forty cents to put it in perspective. I was not picky and took them all and spent the junk on base. Silver quarter size and up was individually priced in the show case. Silver dime size and below was in the junk tubs. I bought a lot of small foriegn silver back then. I came home with several cigar boxes full of old US and foriegn silver. In change on base we still had circulating buffalo nickels and war nickels. I heard of folks finding indians in change but i searched lots of rolls and never found one. siegfried schlagrule
