    Hi Everyone,

    I received an email, from JM Bullion, advertising the coin below. I've bought a couple of 10 ounce coins earlier this year and the most I paid was $219. Silver prices have gone up & down of course but I don't see why there would be such a higher premium that would push the price to over $250!! Anyone have any clues why? The premium is more than 50%!!!! :-(

    I think it has to do with the wildlife series because you can still buy the ten ounce maple from provident for under $200.00 Depending on cash or not even lower.

    Looks like your paying a big premium over spot, i like the 10 OZ size as well
    But stick to bars which in generic form go for around $175 to $180 at current spot
    Depending on your investment strategy ?

    I have a 10oz maple coin (tree of life) on my list to buy, it is well over spot, but not too much more than an RCM bar. Some silver coins I collect because I simply like the design. That grizzly is nice.

    Buy it because you like it, and not whatever it will fetch down the road........

    If I had an unlimited budget then this would be my motto every time!! Lol Unfortunately I have to live within my means so even though I may like a coin I do have to take the price into account.

    as always, it,s a good idea to comparison shop, there can be 5 different prices out
    There for the same thing !

    I did check other dealers and they all had prices that were higher than JM. Since I liked the design I went ahead and bought the coin even though it had a high premium. I'm hoping it turns out to be a low mintage coin!! Lol

    JM, i have found has some of the best prices, did you do any reseach on the coin before you bought it ?

    I did several google searches but there wasn't much info. I couldn't even find a press release from RCM.

    I think your safe with your purchase and knowing that you didn't over pay :)
