IMHO... watch the shows for their 'humor' but stay away... far away from purchasing!
DYODD... There are many dealers that sell certified/graded/slabbed ASEs for several dollars cheaper. I'm assuming you're talking about
I'm going to wait and see what kind of pricing the mint comes out with and will likely be buying from them. Along with several other items on my list, depending on when they come out. Maybe it won't have much affect on ASE prices at all.
No hurry. 2009 ASEs will be abundantly available soon enough for the next 11 months.
You cannot purchase bullion ASEs direct from the Mint. Authorized dealers 'set' the price for the masses.
The price you are showing is awfully expensive. If you look around a little on the net you can pick them up cheaper than that. I just purchased two with shipping and handling for $18.00 and change each. Whether they will go up or down in price throughout the year is no more than a guess, but '09 will probably end up as their biggest mintage year IMO.
What do you mean you can't purchase them directly from the mint? You can to. Maybe not yet but soon.
Also for pricing, we need to clarify if we're talking about unc. or proofs. Proofs will probably be in the upper 20 to low 30 range no matter where you go. Unc. slightly more than half that.
So with that logic ASE's should sell at $17.50? Oh I wish....
20-lot purchases go at $15.66, which they list as $3.99 over spot. I haven't done the math...
BTW, I have no connection with Apmex beyond being a satisfied customer. Happy hunting.
Sorry I'm answering so late.
The US Mint only sells Proof and Burnished ASEs via their website. The coin that was being discussed is neither (it is bullion)
Here is the link for purchasing US bullion coins.
