What does "Call for custom quote" mean at Provident?

    I was looking at some platinum coins at the Provident website, and they have the "buyback" price listed for most of them. However, the Isle of Man Noble only had a message of "Call for custom quote" for the buyback price. The selling price was the lowest of all their platinum coins, so it made me wonder if this meant they didn't even want to buy them back. I emailed them to ask, but they never replied.

    Has anyone ever gotten a response from them when they asked about a buyback price? I ended up buying the coin anyway, but now I worry that they wouldn't want it in the future if I ever decided to sell it.

    Let me ask it this way:
    For anyone who has a coin of any type that they wanted to sell, and the seller listed "Call for custom quote" for the buyback price, what price above/below spot did they end up quoting you? Was it much different from other coins of the same type?

    If the spot price has been volatile, I could see the reasoning. Check on ebay to see how much the difference in available coins are. Or perhaps there may rarer than silver.

    Currently, the price of platinum had been dropping, and is now rebounding. However, the buyback price of all other coins sold by Provident have been listed in the open. The only coin listing "Call for custom quote" in the buyback price location is the Isle of Man Noble. I was just wondering why only that one coin is listed that way, and if it indicates being an undesired coin.

    Well, one reason I thought it might not be desired is that the Noble had the lowest price. It was about $30 lower than all the other offerings. This, along with the "Call for custom quote" for buyback is what got me questioning it. I would have rather gotten a Maple Leaf or Philharmonic, but they were out of stock. So were the Eagles, even with their much higher price tag.

    I wouldn't worry about provident offering a quote. They are a business more than a service.

    I asked my LCS about selling him platinum bars or coins and he politely suggested I sell them to Apmex.
    So besides a US Plat eagle set in a 14k and diamond pendant I bought my wife for our 20th I haven't bought any.

    Same with that other catalytic converter metal that looks like silver. Palladium.
    Nobody around here buys it so the LCS's don't want it.

    The platinum Noble is a nice coin.

    You can't get there from here.
    Speaking of custom quotes, did anybody get a tin of popcorn this year from APMEX?
