Wher-ever I check, prices are higher than you’d expect. The few German dealers who still sell kilo’s under €800 seem to be ones that might not have talked to their wholesaler for a while, as they rarely sell, or still have plenty stock.
Maple Leafs seem to still be had at typical premium, 15.0% above Netdania’s EUR spot price.
Cheapest kilo seller likely to have updated prices: €979 or 14%, but I think this will be 15% across Europe within a few days. The Germans will pick up those last cheap kilo’s soon. Few German shops offer interesting international shipping, if at all.
Wiener Philharmonikers are now the cheapest silver, per ounce, in Europe. 14.6% premium is doable.
Just weeks ago, I bought the larger Perth mint stuff at 11.2%. 10oz also under 12%.
All over Europe, I am seeing suddenly empty stock lists. Just a few odd items, often at high prices, while just a week ago I’d have considered making a day-long journey to go visit.
Am I over-reacting? I might be, as I’ve been scanning the retail market obcessively for the past few weeks, and I like to come with some news. But there you have it.
Silver, in just one week, larger Perth stuff has gotten 4.5% more expensive at my favorite retailer. He used to be the cheapest. Now, the cheapest realistic source is 3.8% more expensive.
The 1-ounce perth stuff is still normally priced it seems, but it was sortof pricey to begin with. 5oz and 1/2oz can be oddly cheap, but that looks more like an attempt to gain quick cash via special ordering to a wholesales on credit than anything else.
Smallest shops now have selected good deals. I have to suspect they just sell too little to justify continious price updates.
Either Perth has increase prices, or they’ve rationed their product. Something is happening or about to happen!
