    Coin Collection Valuation

    Good morning I can't answer you on your question, so I will leave it to be answered by another member. I would like to ask you a few rhetorical questions, that you should think about. Do many people know about your collection or is it something kept private? For safety reasons it is always best to keep things of high value quiet. Is it a vast collection and do you intend becoming a coin dealer and running a professional business? If you are a professional dealer that is running a business, then you might want to consider insurance. Do you feel comfortable disclosing your coin collection and its value to an insurance company? How many telesales consultants will access to your information within the insurance company? It's like the old saying, your house gets burgled when you inform the security company to keep an eye out, because you going on vacation. If you have a small collection, taking out insurance might draw unwanted attention, that may become a safety risk. Not to mention the monthly premiums that will affect the long term investment of a small collection. Do not answer these questions, but do ponder on them.

    Mandela coin

    Hi, it looks like these Silver plated and Gold plated medallions that are sold online. If so, you are looking at R50 to R100. The Silver Mandela Medallions that were issued in recognition of the Nobel Peace prize award, were Silver 1 ounce and issued in a little green folder. I hope that helps

    Coin of the day

    And at only 4 times spot price, those mirror fields better be spotless! If a gold ounce krugerrand is about the same diameter/size as a silver rand, then it's safe to assume a 2ounce gold coin would be crown size. Can you imagine that, a solid gold crown, and not the kind you have on your tooth!

    Has anyone used this VCR?

    Would a warm jacket help against the snow, or am I too old for this thread ,..??

    Coin of the day

    I see that there is now a 2 ounce Krugerrand released - amazing! https://www.bidorbuy.co.za/item/380482695/2019_GOLD_2oz_KRUGERRAND_PROOF.html
  11. Also other bidders get frustrated when they see this happening. As a bidder myself I always check out my competition's ratings to see who I'm up against. I most certainly won't keep bidding if I see a sham profile out bidding me.
  12. I wouldn't risk such a high auction on somebody with no ratings. The person pushed the bid up all the way to R940 but as you can see now, your time and efforts have been wasted. Other bidders who would have gladly paid, but now focus their bidding elsewhere because they have conceded defeat in the auction. The next bidder was pushing above R650 and by their ratings they're a proven customer. Yes R650 is a lot lower than R940 but if you consider the window period is closing for listings, and by next month people are focused on Christmas and not coins, not to mention your promotion fees, it would have made sense to take the R650 bid. regards Robert
  13. I am having major problems currently with bidders with African sounding names - maybe they are from Nigeria but some are local. I recently sold this coin to a person with the name of Faith Nongqotho Presidential Inauguration R5 of 1994 : NGC graded PF69 Ultra Cameo She did not pay me so I send her a friendly reminding email to ask for payment This was her e-mail replay .... (Hold your breath) Hey, Are you selling or wanna buy my coin? I'm selling not buying. Regards Maybe we can start a small fund with the OK of BidorBuy to educate people of what auctions are all about?

  15. Issue resolved with management. Thank you Natasha. This was yet another case of BoB staff members not having proper training to do their job and not having the correct knowledge and information

  18. Yet another case of Bob's authoritarian attitude here. A bidder bid on and LOST an auction for a 6.35ct black diamond. I had another large black diamond in stock (this one of 5.06ct), and I proceeded to offer this at a lower price than the auctioned 6.35ct diamond to the runners up, VERY CLEARLY indicating that the diamond being offered is a 5.06ct black diamond (see attached screenshot of the offer made to the bidder). Buyer then proceeds to rip the certification to pieces, and then complain that they want a refund because they want a 6.35ct diamond instead of the one offered to them which was clearly stated as 5.06ct. Ntombi Shabangu from Bob staff then proceeds to demand that I refund the buyer, stating that the item is not as advertised (although I provided screenshot proof of the offer and BoB can easily check the offer as well on the system), and going on to also state that the CPA gives the buyer the full right to return any product they are nor happy with. The CPA DOES NOT give the buyer any right to return an item which has been physically damaged after it has been received into their possession. Our sales terms clearly state on the auction that no return will be accepted if the certification has been damaged by the buyer. The item also was EXACTLY what was offered after the buyer LOST the auction for the 6.35ct diamond. This is a buyer who has over 50 negative ratings in the past month alone, obviously a problematic buyer to many sellers. As a seller, I am fully within my rights to refuse to accept any return of any item which has, in part or in full, been physically damaged by the buyer after they have received it. Bidorbuy have no right whatsoever so declare that I must accept return of the damaged goods and threaten to close my account if I do not comply with this authoritarian ruling. Certified diamonds sell for at least 50% higher price than uncertified diamonds. I cannot and will not resell this diamond uncertified and take a 50% loss due to the buyer damaging the goods. Further, to have the diamond recertifies in SA will cost a fortune, as only EGL have the ability in SA to determine between natural and enhanced colour in a fancy colour diamond. EGL will charge R450/ct (x 5.06ct) PLUS R1680 for colour authentication. That is R3957 for recertification of this diamond due to the buyer ripping apart the certificate. I will not take that expense on myself, no way no chance. To ship the diamond back overseas for recertification will also be prohibitively expensive due to international courier costs both ways to and from the lab. This is why we have all of our diamonds certified overseas by our suppliers before they are shipped to us, as to certify coloured diamonds in SA is ridiculously expensive due to the colour authentication. I want BoB management to email me and address this, as this type of treatment towards sellers is 100% unjustified and undemocratic. This is authoritarian rule and is not acceptable in a free market environment. To summarise, the buyer received the exact diamond which they were offered after losing the original auction. The buyer then ripped apart the certificate, and the BoB tried to force a refund of damaged goods claiming the CPA gives the buyer that right and threatening account closure if I fail to "comply". I want a response from Bob management regarding this as you cannot bully and threaten sellers in this manner
  19. Seller states Free Collection from shop in Cape Town in his ad. Tried to find out approximate location, so I would not have to drive for hours to get there, but rather pay for delivery Seller ignores two questions Contacted Chat. They said I must place an order, whereupon sellers contact details would be visible. They are, but still no address. Two phone numbers, one does not exist, second "try again later". Sent email to given address. No response Contacted Chat again. I must pay they say. But I explain, would rather pay for delivery if its a long way off. If you do not pay, there will be a SNC against you So order again, this time choosing delivery. First order is not cancelled. I am unable to amend it So much bureaucracy and poor communication drives me up the wall Why not make it easier, for heaven's sake?
