[GSA] Vault Auction #63 - 1988 Perth Mint World Expo 1oz Button Bar

5_gslogo.png

Welcome to Gold Stackers' vault auctions!

These are unique or one-off items that don't fit within our normal catalog, offered exclusively on Silver Stackers.

This weeks auction is for a 1oz Gold Perth Mint Button Bar from the 1988 World Expo!

This week we have a classic Perth Mint one ounce gold button bar struck in 1988 on site at the Western Australian Pavilion at the World Expo 1988 in Brisbane, Australia.

This bar sits in a green display box accompanied by a COA. The hinge on the box creaks when opening smile

The COA states that the bar is number 0027. There were to be no more than 3500 struck at the expo, however we are unsure of the final mintage at this stage.

The box has been wrongly made upside-down (see photos) so the logo on the outside is actually the bottom of the box.

This auction is inclusive of GST.

Starting bid: $1775 (Inclusive of GST)

Auction ends: 9pm (21:00:00) AEST (Melbourne time) Monday, 11th April 2016

Auction terms:
Vendor is Gold Stackers Australia Pty Ltd - all bids are considered a binding offer to buy
Starting bid is the reserve, in Australian dollars
Bid increments to be in whole dollars
Highest bid received before the auction close will be the winning bid, and will be counted as inclusive of GST

Edited posts will be considered void
Available for pickup at our Melbourne office, or will be posted Australia-wide, insured, for an additional $20
Auction is not eligible for international delivery addresses
Buyers details (FULL NAME, address and contact number) to be emailed to [email protected] within 24 hours of the end of the auction for a tax invoice to be issued

Why the GST?
Perhaps auction the gold bar and the box seperately? Ie gold bullion bar without GST and box with GST

I thought that gold only had to be 995 or better to avoid GST, and this item is 996?

No marked purity, presentation case, limited edition hmm It's a collectible in the eyes of the ATO. So GST.
