Just be patient. You can find government-issued 1/10 oz gold for no more than 5% over spot.
Gotta mention that many moons ago when I was ordering coins from First Coinvesters they would throw in a Mexican Dos Pesos as an extra!!! (I said many moons ago). I ended up with 6 of them, but my sister swiped two of them to be made into earrings!
here,s my contribution, 2017 Queens beast "Red Dragon" .9999 Pure
Trying to get the complete set but this was my first.
Here's my candidate for the most ridiculous one...
1/50th ? how small is it ? I have heard of 1/20th OZ from Canada maple leafs
The 1/50th is 8mm, wow! That's a little bitty one! MCM is selling on the bay!
so 50 X $60 = $3,000 for an oz. geez that's a very high premium.
Pretty soon it will take a magnifying glass just to see it, and i thought the 1/10 oz
Yeah, I could hardly believe it. And I thought my 1.7 g two peso coins were small!
How about one grain of Gold !
Then i guess we could move to a flake of Gold and then dust..LOL
With all the news reports that there's a big political upheaval going on in Venezuela, I thought, it's time for me to get a Venezuelan gold coin. It weighs 3 grams and it's a 1957 Sorocaima Indian Chief Caciques de Venezuela Gold Coin Siglo XVI Ley .900. I actually won it on pebay in a toe to toe auction!
Bullion coins were issued by governments long before the Krugerrand and the Maple Leaf. For example, most French roosters, Austrian gold dated 1892 and 1915, and Mexican gold dated 1945, 1947, 1955 and 1959 are mostly restrikes that were issued as bullion coins to get around US gold import restrictions imposed in the early 1960s.
Chinese Pandas are hot at coin shows here in Tokyo, but are mostly popular with Chinese buyers. I don't know of any bullion dealers who are interested in them, they seem to prefer Maple Leafs and Philharmonics, and some also like the Australian Kangaroos. And US bullion coins are "scrap" to them.
Got a Mexican Libertad a couple of months ago! Yeah a 1/10th and I paid a high premium for it, one of the highest I ever paid! I hate paying such a high premium but I don't have any regrets as the premium you'll pay today is even more. Supply and demand!
