Take a peek at any big bullion website, Austrian Philharmonics have the lowest premiums of government issued coins and have the lowest buybacks. They are only a baby step above generic rounds. Why? Is there something about them that I am missing? Personally, I don't like them. Plus, I think the smooth edges make them easier to counterfeit. But my opinion of not liking them couldn't be shared by millions, could it? Whereas we all just "like" the other government issued bullion better, and consequently those have higher premiums because of demand.
