Hm, I don't know what a XRF analyzer is, but i think you can do a Bullion Purity ECM Check. Just came across this, but from what i can read is it tests the density of the coin/bar at any point, and if its uniform, I guess it doesnt have any insert inside?

Its only $2 per scan, but minimum $50 per session? Guess you have to find kaki here?

Cheers

From what I realise, chain shops have this concern. Try those individual entities. Outcome might be different.

I think the Philharmonics are not that well-known at pawn shops. I often seen Perth Mint kangaroos, Chinese Pandas, Maples and SG Mint stuff at pawn shops. No Britannias, Phil etc.

The last time I been to pawn shop to evaluate my Kangaroo that fella just use a scope and see the details through its capsule, didn't even request me to pop the coin out.

The pawnshop that I know of personally is an individual entity, those traditional type. So far they are quite ok, taking in even Brits, Phills, AGE, etc. Best thing is, they even know the purity of these coins.

Ah I see probably as the seniors mentioned different pawnshops have different reactions regarding Philharmonics.

Anyway I also intend to bring it down to another chain store MaxiCash to test their acceptance. Abit concerned if it cannot even be liquidated at MaxiCash then thats two chain stores that do not accept Philharmonics.

Btw anlok can tell me which pawnshop is that ? Cause I intend to buy AGE and krugerrand bullion. Heard somewhere that pawnshop might not be subjected to the 7% GST charge. Can share so I can go take a look if they have AGE or krugerrand bullion ?

It's at Tampines Central. Selling to them is no issue from my past experience but their selling price for coins is not attractive. The last time I saw, they are selling SM 10th Anni bullion coin at $500 cos they take it as collectibles. Not encouraged to buy coins from them. And anyway, I suspect they melted alot of coins rather then sell as their crowd is more like market uncle & aunties who are buying jewelleries only.

Thumbs up

Just to share my experience, I went to one of the chain pawn shops to check a 1/4 oz Canadian Gold Maple, at lucky plaza (forgot which company) since they had a "promotion" going on, and I was quoted $490. Forgot which year alr but I think its 2012 or 2011. BullionStar sells at around $450. So yep I think its not as worth buying cold billion from pawnshops.

You wouldn't want to buy any coins from pawnshops as they tend to quote you based on the price of gold per gram.

I was quoted close to 1900++ for the latest 1oz gold panda!
