Cool. Thanks.

Fun to think about. My gut feel is take all of the free options you can get.
But the tradeoff is ease of liquidation.

Seems worth buying a handful if you were going to be buying anyway. Plus, they are gorgeous.

Here is a good example: https://www.ngccoin.com/price-guide/wor ... id-1529612

Same specifications as a UK Sovereign. With patience you can find these close to melt; and look at those mintages!
I have some 2 rand coins, not proof though. These are about 10% over spot though. You can get proof eagles for that. Let me see if i can find a quote.

So this is a little over 7% over spot for a proof eagle set

You have to pony up 3.7k.

I did this about 2 months ago, got a 2010 set. Gorgeous. Great price considering you're get 3 fractional proof eagles and a 1oz

Thanks for the input all. And thank you for the links, Somedude. I'd jump on that if I wasn't poor.

Every Saturday I'll post the 2 or 3 best deals i see on gold.

I just pulled the trigger on the 2008 MS69 proof eagle set. Final price was $3,677 with gold ask at 1,907. On 1.85oz that's 4.3% over spot.........on proof eagles. And three of the coins are fractional. That is as good as it gets. Buying those 4 coins separately is probably $150 more.

I would have loved to wait for another pullback on spot price but i think its less than a 50% chance we'll get one. I expect fireworks in DC on the 6th and we could see gold going up a few hundred dollars very quickly.

Or not.

That really is a fantastic deal. I am very tempted. If I run across good deals I’ll add them to this thread as well.

Would love to grab one or two of these:

https://sdbullion.com/2019-25x1-gram-ca ... t-in-assay 6.4% over spot. Great for 1 gram coins.

that WAS a great deal ppnewbie. I checked it minutes after you posted and priced it. Then I checked again 10 min later and it was sold out.

Really an unreal deal for 1 gram sovereign coins. That is gold so small you could actually reasonably barter with it even for day to day items.

I should have jumped on that - I had just purchased an a set of MS-70 1,0.5,.25,0.1 eagles. And thought I can’t do another one so quick. I should have done it. Those go for something like 15 percent premiums. Anyway keep the deals coming if you have them - both of those have been fantastic.
