Shipwreck Silver: 1 oz S.S. Gairsoppa Shipwreck Silver Roundson May 27, 2014 at 14:33
Shipwreck silver in the form of 1 oz S.S. Gairsoppa Shipwreck Silver Rounds are now available for sale at more than one outlet.
The newly released 1 oz S.S. Gairsoppa Shipwreck Silver Rounds should be a welcome addition to any collection, especially to the collections of those who are collecting shipwreck silver from the S.S. Gairsoppa. The S.S. Gairsoppa, for those of you who are not familiar with the story, is the British steam merchant ship that was sunk by a German U-Boat on February 17th, 1941. She was loaded with almost 7 million ounces of silver ingots at the time. Fast forward to September 26th, 2011, the salvage crew of Odyssey Marine Exploration found the shipwreck and started recovering the silver. They have up to date recovered almost 110 tons of silver from the shipwreck of the S.S. Gairsoppa. The 1 oz S.S. Gairsoppa Shipwreck Silver Rounds mentioned above are part of the result of that recovery.
Where can I find the best deal on these silver rounds?
The best deal in our opinion can be found at ModernCoinMart (MCM), where they not only have a great selection of the 1 oz S.S. Gairsoppa Shipwreck Silver Rounds available (including low serial number rolls), but also at the best prices we could find, especially given free shipping (within the States) with no restrictions (no minimum orders, etc.). Be sure to order yours here.
JM Bullion also offers the 1 oz S.S. Gairsoppa Shipwreck Silver Rounds for sale, but it comes with a limited selection (no CoAs or low serial number rolls) and the free shipping offered by them comes with the restriction of a minimum order of $100. This is something which they fail to mention, while falsely claiming at their website that “JM Bullion is the only major online retailer offering FREE shipping on every single order shipping to the United States” (under “How Much Does Shipping Cost?” sub section of “Shipping FAQ”).
P.S. Members of the ModernCoins.com Forum (MCF), which is free to join, also stand to enjoy additional benefits if they choose to buy the mentioned silver rounds from MCM. Be sure to get more details here.
