The red heart rose silver is just awesome.    I think the gold should have it too.    Your first year and this year silvers are the best by far.    The 9 g silver red heart would be a perfect gift to get new collectors started and reasonable price for giving....

The show medals should be fine, considering most importers will declare just the bullion value of the coins, so 1oz silver medal will be $1.60 more expensive to import, not a big deal.

For shipping, the Mint insures their products for the full replacement cost which is way, way above melt value. This higher value is what the tariff will be based on. The importer has no opportunity to reduce it.

Incidentally, I just read that the 10% will increase to 25% on January 1.

Modern Chinese Coins / Re: Is now a good time to buy key coins???

During bear markets strong hands buy invisibly and put coins away, the only challenge is the volume is low.  Strongs hands don't care if prices are down next month because they are in it for the long game.  There will come a day when prices will rise again and rise rapidly because market will be controlled by the strongest players, whether that happens in month, year or years nobody knows.

Bullion coins will definitely take a hit, 2019 could be key date year due to tariff and multi year low demand for bullion.  The show medals should be fine, considering most importers will declare just the bullion value of the coins, so 1oz silver medal will be $1.60 more expensive to import, not a big deal.

At about 5PM PST it was announced 10% tariff is applied to Chinese goods.     How does this work?    If anyone buys today they pay the 10% or is the dealer charged?    Is it applied at the post office?    If a package is in the mail does it get taxed in the US?   Any one know?.....

Packages with values of less than $2,500 may escape the tariff. Above $2,500 it can cost not only the tariff but also the cost of customs clearance. A new China Pricepedia is about to be sent out that discusses this.
