So, I know that there are coins with numismatic value, and then there is bullion. But what about a cross between the two? Can it exist? Does it make any sense? Does it have to be either/or? One or the other? This question stemmed from my indecision about breaking seals on full tubes of Canadian Silver 1oz 2016 Superman Shields. (It's a beautiful coin, btw.) I bought 4 tubes from one of the big dealers at the same cost as what I would have paid for 1oz current year Silver Maple Leaf. Are they worth the same? Are they worth more? And if I would break the seals on the tubes would they be worth less? My reason for wanting to break the seals on the tubes is because like the Canadian Silver Leaf they are not packed tightly in the tubes and there is empty space on top where they shift when I move the box holding them. I want to put something there to keep them from moving around. But if I break the seals will they be worth less? I would think that eventually the seals would need to be broken because neither I nor my family in 100 years from now would be able to sell them without the buyer breaking the seals to examine them. Besides, the "seals" are nothing very special, they are a simple sticker with "Superman" written in the Superman font and colors (attached a picture). The full tube of I have of Australian Silver Koalas has a more official looking seal with a holographic design (attached pic) and I would imagine that keeping that sealed makes a difference. Though who would ever, ever buy it without examining the contents? Would be interested in any thoughts you have on this. Then I have a couple of 1oz gold coins that I think may be collectible, which I bought at a low % over spot, similar as I would have paid for current year Gold Eagle or Gold Maple Leaf. One is a 1oz Gold Britannia with Oriental Border, another is a 1oz Great Britain Two Dragons. Nice looking coins. Is there more value to them than bullion? I would like to stick to only buying the Gold Maple Leaf for 1oz coins because of the security features. But are counterfeiters really going to bother with a coin of 5k mintage?
