    On Amazon I've found 5oz. coins for fairly cheap... around the $140 range

    Wow...thanks for the heads-up. Have NEVER bought coins from Amazon or their 3rd-party sellers.

    Didn't see any cheapos just now...a few at MV or a bit above...a few at asinine prices looking for a sucker. :D

    Yeah, I was just looking for the ones I saw a few days ago but I didn't see them... I wonder... Did they sell out or were they fake?

    That is true that some are more popular than others. I like the Wedge Tailed Eagles. I collected the Koalas as well but only focused on 1 oz and 1/2 oz silver (some of the early years have great designs).

    The Lunars I like as well (some more that others-Dragon, Tiger, Monkey, Rabbit, Ox...the snake is probably my least favorite).

    And milk spots are one of the factors that contributed to me stopping collecting modern bullion. It is wise to buy some of the older designs as that can be a sign that they won't acquire milk spots if they haven't already (not guaranteed but certainly safer).

    When you say "modern bullion" you mean graded coins ?

    You go back 2-3 years (?) and if there aren't milk spots by then, should be OK. Go back 5 or more, chances are really small that they'll develop then.

    Maybe there's a thread here or elsewhere about when the "danger period" for milk spots is past.

    It was shipped to me in a plastic casing. Have not opened it.

    By modern bullion I mean any of the series from the 1980s through today (Eagles, Maples, Kookaburras, Koalas, Lunars, etc...). I would buy the current year releases (mainly Australia but also Canada), but some would get the spots (mainly Canada; the Lunars also would occasionally spot). I collected both raw (Lunars, various Canadian, Kookaburras) and graded (mainly Koalas and a few random items from different countries). Over the last few years I sold many based on a combination of the spotting problem and becoming more interested in classic coins.

    I bought a 5oz libertad about a month ago and totally love it. I've owned a 5 ounce panda and ATB coin but love the Libertad in the large size the best.

    That's a GREAT coin in the large size...I want one on my WishList, just waiting for the right price.

    BEAUTIFUL coins.......:D

    I'm not sure I've seen a 5 oz. Panda -- gotta look. I remember someone had a 10 ounce or larger GOLD Panda at FUN.

    I'd grab a Panda -- I think I have more of the 1 ouncers than any coin, even the ASEs. Ditto the Libertad. But I don't want to pay a gross premium of over 150% for it which is what I see now for a graded PF70 (would save some $$$ and go with a PF69).

    I had a 2013 panda and the detail was washed out I thought. I bought the Libertad on APMEX they had a 4 hour flash sale awhile back with a very reduced premium.

    I think I have bought from APMEX before....they might still send me emails from time-to-time....but I never got a notice about any "flash sale." :(
