Gold Eagles more than Gold Maples. It makes NO SENSE

    I don't understand why the 2018 Gold Eagle is around $5 more than the Gold Maple.

    The Gold Eagle contains a bunch of copper and is prone to spotting. Minus 1
    The Gold Eagle has a lady on obverse that looks like she has nursed the entire nation and now has the droopiest, floppiest boobs. minus 2
    The Gold Eagle has no extra security features and is harder to authenticate Minus 3

    The Gold Maple is 9999 gold and near pure. Spotting is very unlikely, almost impossible. Although because it is so pure, it's easy to scratch.
    The Gold Maple has brilliantly beautiful and simple maple leaf on the obverse (just ignore the wrinkly old figure head on the reverse)
    The Gold Maple has radial lines and a micro engraved security date. It can also be DNA authenticated.

    The Gold Maple is $5 less. That's a whole extra sandwich at Subway!

    I vote for the Gold Maple.

    Except for the crowd that only buys US made bullion. Like me. No Canadian, Mexican, UK, Australian, Austrian, South African, etc.

    I'd probably only buy Canadian (or other) for some specific design. I do have one of their Holographic gold coins from 2009ish? But that's all; no other foreign gold.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Is there a $5 spread in the buy price as well?

    Yes, but they're just called Tim Hortons.

    That's the second time in a day somebody mentioned Tim Horton's. Until now, I had never heard of them. That's okay, I've never seen a Menard's, either.

    Better watch out Kurt. They're expanding out of Canada. The one in Duncannon is just up the road from you:eek:

    Clearly Canadian invaders. Check out Erie with 9 of 'em. It was an amphibious landing.

    The other Canadian restaurant we have in the USA is Burger King.

    Tim Horton’s and Burger King are owned by the same company now. I also think they recently bought Popeyes chicken.

    Yes, it's a terrible design that makes it look like she's a tired old hag who had a few too many kids.

    Get over the fact that most folks like 'yanks' are opposed to Canadians.......fact is, I do like my brethren to the north.........just not their bullion. It's prone to spotting, and negative data. I've yet to own an bullion piece, but I'm open to purchase one, in the near future.

    Supply and demand set the price. Either there’s a lower supply or higher demand for Eagles over Maples.
