In Australia I have now sorted through 6 x 10kg of bulk world coins. It has been enjoyable yet frustrating (had one lot containg 20% (2kg) of Thai bhats plus another seller who said they would ship the coins (older lots) from his parents place in NSW but ended up drop shipping bulk lots from a coin dealer in Qld whom I could have picked them up from and saved $50 freight ) . Might still get some bulk from Oz but looking at getting some from other sources (overseas). Am in the process of getting a refund from one O/S seller on EBay (has been 5 weeks and no tracking provided despite decription saying item would be sent with tracking and priority delivery) but otherwise have not ordered anything else from OS. With EBays ridiculous GSP pricing ($22-25 shipping for a $1 3g farthing ) am looking for non-EBay OS sellers who can supply coins at the rate of $150-200 AUS per 10kg or part thereof. I saw a site called Bkorgset that seem to be an Amazon style platform in the US. They say orders over $40 shipped for free and they do international orders but have yet to see if free shipping applies to OS orders. Has anyone dealt with coin purchases from this site? There seem to be several coin vendors on the site. Is it legit or a site full of dishonest sellers? Thanks

Hi Chipjones,

Checked them out ... they seem to sell in 100 coin lots which I'm not too keen on. Prefer by weight. At least I can judge comparative pricing. For 100 coins it's AU $30 (discounted). Assuming 100 coins = 1kg then Au$300 per 10kg which is getting pretty expensive. I will however contact the individual sellers later on to see if I can get a better bulk buy and shipping rate or at least semi-customise the coins (I don't want to spend $300 on mostly Lincoln pennies and Thai Bahts!). Do you correspond with or recommend any particular sellers on Boardwalk Numismatics?

Hi Chipjones,

Thanks but it seems as a new member I am deemed to have no need to send you an e-mail and am thus blocked by the powers that be. How long does it take for you not to be considered a noob? If it's anything like outback Ozzie towns it could take decades!!

Ah. Thanks. Will send you an email when I crack 50! Almost there!
Actually, I also turn 50 this year so have almost cracked that milestone as well. Not sure if that is worth getting excited about though!
