LoL <-- BiddingTilWin here.
I won 4 auctions today but that bid pack cost me... Only started today so learning who to go against/not go against right now.
Question for ya two... seems the silver stuff often goes way less then the gold stuff... just a first days notice but your thoughts?
Hey, and welcome to the forum.
As for your question, it really kind of depends honestly. I can't really speak for other people in their reasoning, but I actually like silver, gold, and platinum. For the most part, I just pick my items based off the designs (i know that sounds retarded, but I'm serious) and/or which ones would be the most meaningful to me or others in association. Like for instance, I take care of four girls, so I wanted a panda for each one of them which is why I aimed all panda stuff last friday and tagged 1 more. Didn't care what metals they were, as long as they had pandas!
For me it's kind of like eating food. If the food is ugly, I won't eat it, so if the coin is ugly... I won't bid on it no matter what it's worth. Others only aim for silver, while some will not touch anything that isn't gold.
The other thing to consider is the sizes... A lot of people want the gold because although it's offered in smaller quantity, it's worth a little more. That being so, it's easier to store it vs the same value of silver being much bigger. you have to keep in mind that a lot of these bidders are not really into precious metals like some of us and have no idea why they are even bidding, they just know it's fun. Others are really wanting to acquire it to hold on to for years, so you never know which few people are going to clash on what pieces.
