    I would be, too. I feel bad for the folks he's buying them from, but not sure how you turning down cheap silver would help them...

    Lots of 2017 silver maples since they're on sale at Provident. I have delayed my 1oz gold Maple purchase until spot drops closer to $1200. I hope we'll get there by September!

    The 1st run eBay 10 ounce bars were on sale from their normal inflated price. I have been wanting one. It is a good looking bar!

    I just picked this up. Only my 2nd gold coin so far but I hope to increase my holdings more and more.

    Today is my birthday but I picked this up yesterday the 10th for $85. About $10 over spot but I am happy and that is what counts. I think my next purchase will be a 1/4 or 1/2 oz Eagle.

    My '18 bullion budget was pretty much blown. Then Freddy Kruger started wiggling his way into my dreams.

    Yesterday my wife got her nails done so while there I looked for something to do. Little to my knowledge there was a coin shop around the corner. This isn't my normal shop but I figure I would give him a chance. I will stick to my normal guy. Down to earth, easy going, gives great deals, and we agree politicaly. 20180807_235456.jpg 20180807_235537.jpg

    The pricing wasn't horrible but he was very high energy, one of those Energizer bunny type of folks.. Anyways, at 99 cents over spot I couldn't resist adding an Arctic Fox to my stack.

    I spent my approx $100 monthly budget ($112 actual, $16 each) on 7 oz of Maple Leaf and Canadian Wildlife (2 mountain lions and 1 pronghorn) culls at my LCS. I also received a Cumberland Island 5 oz ATB which I pre-ordered in July for $101.61 from JMBullion.

    I wish I had enough discipline to have a monthly coin budget. I buy when presented an attractive deal most generally. Some months for bullion that will be nothing, (especially a few years ago when prices were simply too high), to $5k if I feel market prices are low and premiums cheap. I have been buying quite a bit lately with low market prices and what I feel premiums coming down a lot.
