Still get's premium bonuses, just not double xp and credits than normal for a prem.

 

Thanks to eXs11 for pointing this out.

 

The original Type 59 G sold for gold has a x2 credit and xp modifier over the non gold version. 

 

This one does not, it has the same earnings as the standard Type 59.

 

Both EU and RU had 1000 of them.

 

Google translate of RU page.  Caption under the first picture of the tank states (translated),

 

Block Quote

 So that there were no unnecessary questions: the tank farms experience and credits as standard Type 59.

Not being sold for silver. Sold for 25k gold.

Have your wallets out. That comes out to $100.

25k Gold is pretty steep for a vehicle that's a downgrade on the original version of the same vehicle. I'd purchase one myself if the credits/xp were in line with the original version.

Yes. It will cost you 25,000 gold.

My wallet is most definitely staying closed for this one; literally have zero interest in a gaudy gold "Please Shoot Me in the Face" tank.

 

Edit:  Not to mention, if I want a gold one I would just use the gold skin mod.

A Type 59 for $100 / CDN$125?  Nah, it ain't worth it  *IMHO*  for an average schmo like me.  I have the T-34-3 for my crew trainer/credit maker — and the Type 59 required playstyle would make it challenging for me.  An expensive premium tank that probably wouldn't bring me much joy or income in the game.

 

If it only cost $60?  Then hell yah! I'd buy it — just for the schitzen giggles!

It's looks like it's straight out of a narco traficante's wardrobe.   :facepalm:

$100? lmbo  "Get yourself a Glock and lose the nickel plated sissy pistol."

since i have the type 59, its stupid to waste money to get a special skin for that much, if it made twice what the normal 59 does then, why not. otherwise get the skin mod out of aslains.

Chances are that they will only offer up 500 or even less here on NA.  Last night they had 20,000 M 41's over there but we had less than half of that offered here.

Amount offered is tied directly to server population. The ru server has more players than all the other regions combined and then maybe even double that number and the ru servers would still have more.

I know right? WTH is WG thinking selling this thing for 3 times the price of a regular Hype 59. :facepalm:

Profit? How many 25k gold purchases will this enable?

What would be funny is if after everyone buys their Type 59G for gold, then the next patch nerfs gold ammo back to purchase only for gold.

Is there a difference between an old Type 59 and one received fairly recently?

None. All have exactly the same stats and bonus. The 59g has the nifty golden dragon skin though.
