Yes they do, I've bought from Liberty myself but it's been awhile, I'm a bit short on foam!

I bought some 1/10 ASEs ... these things are small. Gonna stick with larger ones.
Absolutely, larger coins usually means larger savings!
I sold it last year and the OGH helped me get close to a 15% premium to the spot price of about $2,000/ounce !!
You have to. As a novelty item or a 1-time purchase, they're OK. But the premiums on the 1/10th or 1/20th ounce gold coins can be 40%. And you won't get it back in all likelihood if you need to sell and gold is at the same price.
Oh I know that. I haven't bought gold since it went above $1500 or something like that.
I bought it for $238.67 and spot at that time was $2,023.31
I was thinking of buying a tube of 'em just for "novelty" in a way.
The only small gold coins I have are stuff like the 1917 McKinley gold dollar that I bought at least 8 years ago and other $1, $2.50 gold coins (plus normally the 1 oz for stacking). I've never sold any gold (only sold silver), going back to the 1980s so I'm not too worried about premiums at this point. Plus, who knows when I could kick the bucket. I still have to buy a 3/4 oz Kennedy which is on my short list which I held off when spot was $800 and was hoping it would lower ... oops.
The value is definitely there I own allot of saints as well as liberties and and will continue to buy those two issues as well
as some bullion as well
It depends who you're dealing with, as I guarantee a full price return, with a premium!
LOL I've never had a return, when selling quality!
I have to check my records -- not sure I even have the dates -- but I don't recall ever buying 1/10th ouncers for LESS than like a 40% premium.
Now....for most of that time gold was rising as I think the time period was 2009-12. It's possible that the premium falls when interest in gold is lackluster and the price is either flatlining or dropping. But I have never gotten them as cheap as what you paid when I got them from my LCS.
Nice job !
Great and interesting observations. Can you elaborate a bit more on them ?
Type or Investment demand on the rise for Saints....who are these "new investors" you are talking about, are they just new CUSTOMERS or have they told you they just got into coin collecting.....surprised about Oregon Trail coins, very niche and specific.....what are San Diego issues ?
I had to sell my 1915-S OGH last year and I bought it for spot gold at FUN 2020 and got a 15% premium on the sale so you are definitely correct on rising demand for the investment source of Saints.
As the story goes the less GOLD you buy the more premium you will have to pay.
and that’s a given.
Here is a PR69 DCAM 1/10 oz. PROOF Gold coin purchased @ $265 today for considerably less than a 40% premium:
What silver coin in that condition/mintage, which would come even close in comparison?
I believe none!
