The silver version of this bar is highly collectible, not sure about the gold version

I have a vintage 5oz vintage gold bar just like this one, purchased it over here in the UK back in 2013....

Re: Rare, Collectable and Vintage Gold Bars.

Hi all,

I've been admiring this thread for a few days, some of the pics are amazing.  I'm going to start stacking physical next year after taking some money out of junior miners.  I was going to buy standard 1oz bars from my local dealer, but seeing some of the pics here I would love to know how I can my hands on the more collectible bars seen here.

I've found a couple of sites online that have some really cool bars, but I was wondering if there were any niche sites out there, or is there much inter-member selling going on here too?

All info would be much appreciated!

Thanks!

Re: Rare, Collectable and Vintage Gold Bars.

I would strongly avoid the niche sites cos they would be fleecing you blind with their ridiculous premiums (unless you're willing to fork out money).

I suggest either looking out at the sales thread, or on ebay where you find some nice bars once awhile. The trick to collecting such bars is to be patient and not buy them all at one go.

You could also go down to Hong Kong where they have those nice tael bars that never go out of style.

Re: Rare, Collectable and Vintage Gold Bars.

Altima has given you good advice, simply look for them on your local classifieds and so on.. often their owners will be selling them even cheaper than the new ones, since 'they are old and ugly'. smile

re the niche sites, I found one that had a great selection of truly beautiful bars, but as you say the premiums were very high.  I would like to try and balance what I pay extra for the numismatic value of the bar, but not pay too much over spot.

I've been wanting to go to HK for a long time, now there's even more reason for me to go!

Re: Rare, Collectable and Vintage Gold Bars.

I think I know which niche website you're talking about (he got banned by the mods here for spamming).

But personally I wouldn't pay an arm and leg.

Great suggestions up there and to cricket, happy hunting.

Here's another piece. An even older version of Hong Kong good delivery 9900 bar. Year 1982.

Unfortunately, a lot of the photos in this thread got lost during the recent downtime. So here is a fresh photo... The only known (to my knowledge) 10oz Geomin bar to survive...
