Do these figures include the silver bullion ingots/bars the Perth Mint Australia (Gold Corp. of WA) sells to its worldwide customers? Does the gold bullion total include the new EBay (TM) gold 1-ounce .9999 fine ingot with both the Perth Mint swan logo & EBay logo struck on it that they informed me about in their bullion division e-mail newsletter last month?
