Default importance of serial numbers?

Hi guys,

I just want to know if good serial numbers are important to you for your collectible gold bar purchases? especially those pamp suisse lunar series etc.? would you pay a premium for auspicious numbers? just curious!

paying a premium for number doesn't gel well for gold when u sell at spot. Are you buying precious metal or the tatoo on the precious metal? If your insurance policy comes with a policy number 88888, will you be paid more than you are insured? Seriously, but without a premium, I'm sure you can sweet talk someone into taking your metal because it has a nice number. My 5 cents.

There will always be a market if you know how to find it.

Have seen some people paying big bucks for bars with 00001 or 0008 etc.

If I am buying, I will say it is useless with intention to discount the premium tied to A0000001. If I am selling, I will link it to any event and sell sky high C20150809 (SG50 celebration).

thank you all for your mixed candid responses! i wouldn't pay a premium but i would want to choose a nice serial number for my gold bar.

who wouldn't want a gold bar with an auspicious "888888", if possible?

If I am picking a gold bar among multiple bars, I will pick a nice number provided I do not have to pay extra for nice numbers.

But again, not sure if your future buyer is willing to pay more for your nice number?

It's really subjective. Just like some people pay extra for nice mobile phone numbers or car plate. Some might pay extra for gold bar serial 8888 or 0404 if it's meant as an auspicious gift, eg, CNY, baby shower or wedding. If it's meant to be chucked away in the safe, then maybe not. Unless the bar/coin is a collectible.

its a presonal preference - i think for bullion bars it does not matter but say for a collectible proof coin or a note the numbers can add to the value.

For example the singapore mint coins the 88 or 888 coin certificates may be given only to select customers or special people. Notes ending in solid numbers like 111111 or 888888 fetch extra money.

In some countries notes ending in 786 are collectible and with any collectible the price/value becomes a function of Demand and Supply and how deep a pocket the buyer has
