A handy parcel of silver bullion, now that it is bouncing up again off recent lows, but nowhere near very recent highs. Sample photo shown to give you an idea - a bag of issued ozzie coins is what you are getting of course!

What we have here is about 2.6 kilos weight total of Australian older coinage that is either 50% pure silver (after 1945) or Sterling Silver - .925 fine.

When converted, there is 1.364 kilos of PURE silver here - GUARANTEED. That is 43.85 TROY ounces of pure silver. GUARANTEED.

As I type this, Silver is $US40.48 an ounce, but do check this CONSTANTLY updated graph below, as it has generally been rising in recent days.

So as I type this, 43.85 Troy Ounces at $US40.48 an ounce is $US1,775 as "melt value".

So my price is literally $150 BELOW the melt rate as I type this - and that $150 will go higher or lower depending on bullion price and $A price - minute by minute.

Australian Silver Coin Bullion Values

Pre-1946 (.925 pure silver) Post-1945 (.500 pure silver)

We have in here -

Shilling -7
Sixpence - 7
Threepence - 1

Florin - 121
Shilling - 126
Sixpence - 160
Threepence - 58

If you happen to believe we might re-visit the $US50 type price level of just a month or two back, this price might look very tempting.

If silver did reach that $US50, this lot is $US2,192.50 melt value.

Me, I have no idea, I just buy and sell such lots when purchased, make a tiny profit, and move on. :D


Due to the high sum - three lay-by/layaway payments of $500 each, a month apart are OK if you want to lock this in, and pay it off while silver hopefully still rises!

Being around bullion price this $1,500 is a skinny margin 'cash' deal, i.e. bank transfer etc. Cards or paypal payments must add 2.5%.

$A1,500 "cash" plus shipping


Silver price when this lot was loaded up here!

If silver goes any higher than $US40 and I notice this, I reserve the right to up the asking price accordingly - so do not sit around "thinking" about this offer! Each $1US the spot price goes up, is a $US43 increase in melt value.


REMEMBER - All parcels leaving me this month will have these GEMS as franking!


Remember, adding another lot of mine (posted by either Admin or GlenStephens or Global Administrator, or ozstamps) - here (or on my website) for sale in general adds ZERO to your shipping cost, so have a good look at what is on offer here in case something else appeals:

All payment details are on -

Call it "44 ounces Silver - stock number 592FB" and please order via:

Silver and Gold are both up solidly in recent days, and silver is holding up well at OVER $US40 - or about $US1,775 as I type this, so last chance at this price, before I up the asking price as allowed for -

Most recent price quoted on Glen's link (around noon 18th Aug New York time) was $40.49. So the price is holding steady.
