    You could have saved a lot of time by starting on our Tax Free Gold website here:
    although since we created the page in 1999 / 2000, a few new one ounce gold bullion coins have been introduced, such as the Pacific Sovereign
    When we get a few spare minutes, we will update the first of these two pages.

    I got this last week for spot, said 5oz but actual weight is 154.20 grams, 1.3 grams underweight. Previous owner wasnt a coin collector so finger smudges everywhere. I will clean it up a bit later.

    Kingdom of Bhutan coin, 5oz gold, face value 20,000 Ngultrum, year of issue: 2000 commemorating the Lunar Year of the Dragon

    Hi SilverCiti

    The Chinese Gold Panda is a series of gold bullion coins issued by the People's Republic of China.
    China issued its first gold coins picturing a panda design in sizes of 1, 1/2, 1/4, and 1/10 troy oz.


    The reverse design of the Chinese Panda gold bullion coin changes from year to year . Each year, the rear design features a different panda, one of China’s most prized creatures.

    Reasons to go for Panda Coin?

    1) Low interest rate environment and the ever volatile financial market.

    2)Panda Coin is always a good choice to protect your wealth against inflation & uncertainty and currency depreciation.

    I have some links which can be beneficial for you:

    This coins looks pretty nice!

    I have 2 you can add to the list. They are a bit older, but appear to be rather plentiful and priced as bullion.

    I picked up a British gold sovereign and an Iranian gold Pahlavi at auction a couple months ago. Paid around melt - a bit over with buyer's premium. I'll try and get some pictures up once I figure out how to de-bezel them safely.

    I work in a gold manufacturer and one of our customer paid with that coin, so I redeemed it :)

    Be Careful Of Stink Bids, Part 2: OK, I see a 1/2 ounce Mexican Libertad that is an MS69 Ultra Cameo. Very nice coin, guy is asking $950 for it. I offered $725. Didn't think it would hit....but it did.

    Think I did OK....1/2 ounce of gold...nice coin....slabbed....decent grade (69)...nice feature (UC)....all for a 16% premium to spot gold.

    You have to be prepared to buy, as I was (though I didn't actually think he'd accept my bid). But putting in some low-balls (15-20% below asking price) sometimes works out. But also, sometimes it doesn't or you bid on something you misread (see Part 1 here:

    Anyway, I'll post pics later.

    Here's my coin, a 1/2 ounce Mexican Libertad MS69 Ultra Cameo:

    0.5 Ounce Mexican Libertad MS69 UC.jpg 0.5 Ounce Mexican Libertad MS69 UC - reverse.jpg

    Got this coin somewhat accidentally.....seller wanted $950, I offered $725...and he accepted !!! Surprised what I thought was a 'stink-bid' got accepted but didn't back out even though I was looking at other coins more seriously.

    Hope I got a good deal...anybody here a Libertad Expert ?:D

    I collect both Au & Ag Libertads. I would not claim to be an expert. Their low mintages are great. The demand at this time for the gold is lower (vs. silver libertads), but if that changes, we will be smiling!
    Here is a good link...

    I think you got a very good deal. Only 600 minted in this proof and a 69 grade!

    I think as more collectors discover the Libertad, the demand will increase over time. In addition, the Mexican percentage of the population in the USA will grow more over time too. If they want to invest in something (like the Libertad) that represents their heritage, that could be good for demand too.

    Thanks AVS...I didn't realize the proof fractional mintage was that low, I must have read from the silver or gold circulated columns a few days ago and thought it was 5,000 !! :D

    If you want more information on the Libertads, the best resource I know is Pat Stovall. He can be reached at If you get on his mailing list, you can know when their new issues are coming out.. Here is their website, but he sells a good amount through eBay..

    I don't usually even focus on mintages because I feel aside from U.S. coins, it's unlikely that there will be a run on foreign coins unless their home countries develop big bullion/numismatic interest. Which is always possible, but then again, they might take up baseball card collecting and bail me out of some of my disastrous 1990's purchases. :D

    Prices are determined by supply & demand. Low supply generally never hurts prices, so I like lower supply. Demand is determined by many factors, but I sure don't like high mintage items unless you pay exceptionally close to spot price. Why give any real premium for a common coin? Just my two cents. I like you have many baseball cards from the 1990s that aren't worth anything. In this case, supply hurt the equation and of course demand fell off a cliff too. A double whammy for the baseball card collectors! I have learned from this supply is important.
