Done. What was my time?
what is this?
PAMP Swiss v. Perth Australian brand bars
And that is bars of silver or gold (or platinum), not chocolate
One is as good as the other. They both have PM tied to the market demand for that commodity.
I don't buy either. Sometimes I'll get one in a lot I purchase. If I find a 1oz round or bar at a good price, I might buy it. Personally, I think the " art " bars and rounds are over priced. And those little 1 grammars? They are usually way over priced. It takes 31 of those to approach a Troy ounce. Take the last price you paid for one of those, multiply it times 31 and you'll know why I don't buy those.
Yes, come on, people. I know we want to buy precious metals, but the smaller you buy, the higher premium you pay. Don't do it.
No, they're both as bad as each other.
You missed my point. Buy either one or buy something else. It doesn't matter. In the end, when you sell, it is what it is and it's only worth spot pricing.
That's a good point.
I would go with PAMP, they tend to bring a larger premium, for example
Johnson Matthey and Engelhart will always bring a premium over generic
Just because people do collect these ( me included..LOL) but if you sole
Purpose is to maintain a spot price go generic, that way you wont have
To worry about recovering the premium over spot.
I just bought some rounds from a dealer who bought them WAY back and he sold them to me under spot. When I posted pictures here someone mentioned that they had seen one particular design being sold significantly above spot on ebay. Meh
I bought a Pamp 5 gram gold fortuna for a gift. Makes a great necklace. Other than that, they aren't that interesting to hoard..
Happy New Year everybody!
I usually go for 10 oz. silver bars or silver eagles; but, as or late, I am thinking of investing some gold (10 or 20 gram bar OR gold eagle).
While this purchase will be for 95% investment purposes, I do like me some nice coins and so may go for a gold eagle, etc.
Gold Eagles in the 1/10 and 1/4 oz types are not OVERLY expensive...
The problem with that, is when you by smaller amounts you actually pay
More, if your sole purpose is for investment it would be in your best
Interest just buy 1 oz Coins Or Bars.
About six years ago, news was circulating about some fake 10oz gold plated tungsten bars that had been discovered in Manhattan. They were made to look like Pamp Suisse bars. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...
