Does brand name matter for bullion?

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes? Supporter

    Ok, sort of a bad example since they're defunct and now considered "semi-collectible."

    How about Pampe Suisse?

    I suggest considering resale options on the various items rather than only the ask price. Oddities like the American Commemorative Arts Medals can sometimes be had at less than the price of a generic 1 ounce bar, but you'll find fewer buyers as well.

    Yeah true. That’s why I’ve mostly been buying American Gold Eagles. Because I know they’re recognizable world wide and they are easy to sell.

    Like Vermillion Enterprises in Spring Hills, Florida pays spot + $55 for BU 1oz American Gold Eagles.

    But the premium to buy them is pretty high so I’m wondering if it’s worth buying the cheaper stuff and paying like $100/oz less.

    I think it is (worth buying AGE's), but I also like Maples and buffalos

    In silver bullion I've put together a date set of most of the popular rounds, ASE, Panda, Britannia, Elephant, Austria, Canada since I started stacking. It satisfies my collecting urge along with my stacking purpose. As for the premiums, you'll usually recoup them on resell if you use the same dealer you bought from.

    Bullion is bullion, so paying extra for a brand
    name isn’t very smart, just buy the cheapest
    over spot that you can :)

    there's no reason to pay big premiums for so called "Boutique Bars" in other
    words pay for the bullion not the name on the front.

    The top players in the game are Johnson
    Matthey and Englegard, most of the time
    in addition to the bullion premium you will
    have to pay a premium fir the actual bar
    so it can get expensive really quick.

    The above is a pressed version, JM
    premium bar with the TD bank reverse
    good examples can demand upwards of
    $350 over spot premium prices.

    Poured bars like the example above can
    be worth a tremendous amount. being poured
    each bar has a unique ginger print called
    cooling rings, no bar is identical.
