Scottsdale Mint - Vortex and Stacker Empty Scottsdale Mint - Vortex and Stacker

Fri Oct 20, 2023 9:24 pm
Just received my first Scottsdale silver directly from their mint. The two 1-ounce Vortex bars are stunning. The attractive front and vortical back really make for a lion size winner in my book. Next is their straightforward 10-ounce stacker bar. The high relief portion of the front allows for another bar to securely fit underneath it. These 10 ouncers come with a serial number on the back. Both have grooved edges.

Steve,

I could easily get into stacking these. Perhaps I might take a break from Pamp to Stack some Scotsdale.

For the few dealers that ship to the UK, I'm happy to know that Scottsdale is one of them. Cool  I like their stackable lion rounds and will soon order a couple of them.

A little variety is the spice that keeps giving Jon. I'll look into the Pamp bars.

Definitely competitive versus buying the same bars from APMEX, JM Bullion, etc.

Silver spot price was $22.82 when I purchased them on October 17th. I paid $6.26 over spot for each one ounce bar and $41.97 ($4.20 per ounce) over spot for the ten ounce bar.

While silver spot has recently been on the uptick, I still purchased these bars from Scottsdale because I read many good things about the mints products and I find their silver offerings to be practical and very attractive.

I really wish I could get them at that price. But with postage and fees it would be just like buying it here. Plus I still have to pay VAT / Sales Take on it as well. Argh.

I just took delivery of two Vortex bars. (Yes, on a Sunday. Royal Mail's Christmas deliveries must be kicking in). I found a dealer - Next Day Bullion -  in the UK who had some in. Obviously VAT had to be paid, but when compared with probable VAT and postage from dealers in the US it was a no-brainer. Unfortunately, they are now out of stock. The bars are lovely though, and sent out in a capsule and a cute little velvet pouch. Such service! One of the bars is a Christmas present, so the fancy packing just adds to the joy.
Seriously, though, I am very pleased with the service. I'll update the dealers list idc. Unfortunately at the moment a lot of their goods are marked out of stock so I'll have another look in a few days and see if there's a restock.

Update: They anticipate a restock c. mid-January. They do have a PAMP Rainbow Snake coin bar in stock though. Very nice.

Never seen Next Day Bullion before.  It's never come up in a web search; maybe their SEO is a bit off.  Every now and then I find a dealer that I've never heard of.

When I googles the name, it came way down on the list of sites. It is there, though, based in Leicester.

If you google for something like silver britannia or 10g gold bar, it never appears on search results.  I suspect their SEO is a bit dysfunctional and they really need to spend a few bob on a consultant to tweak that.

TCM, I like how you hunted down your Vortex bars and in nice fashion too. I don't know what to say about the VAT.

VAT is a cross we have to bear over here. Given that mainstream US dealers charge around $30 to post to the UK, and then the parcel may have VAT charged on top, it made sense to pay a bit extra for a bar that's already over here. It still hurts, but the pain could be much greater.

I understand TCM. Under the circumstances, you got the best deal. Cool

I wondered that too, but it was the request for my Tinder profile that really got me wondering.  Scottsdale Mint - Vortex and Stacker 1f63d
