New pickup! 1 oz Gold American Eagle 2020!


Hey guys just wanted to share something that just arrived about 10 minutes ago.

I feel like this coin is underestimated in terms of artistic value as a coin itself.

It seems like most people just see it as bullion even though it’s a very beautiful coin.

    Ooooh I never saw that!

    I’m wondering if I should send mine in to PCGS to be graded or not.

    I only picked the 2020 coin because 2020 has been an insane year plus due to so many people losing their job I don’t think as many of them will be purchased as in previous years. I mean $2,000 is a lot of money if you’re out of work.

    I think people who are looking purely for bullion would go for the Buffalo or another .9999 fine gold bullion coin rather than the .9167 American Gold Eagle.

    Even though both have 1 oz of pure gold in them.

    More precious metal in the eagle you get 1 ounce of gold plus free silver.

    I love both AGEs and buffs, so I would much prefer an AGE over any other .9999 gold piece like a maple leaf for instance.

    Oh is it silver? I always thought the extra metal was copper.

    I assumed that’s why the Royal Mint’s 1 oz Gold Britannia was more shiny because I thought there was silver in that one vs the less shiny AGE.

    If you look at them side by side you will see there is a difference.

    But why? I mean as an investment does it really matter?

    If you discount numismatic value won’t a 1oz Maple Leaf be worth the same as a 1oz Buffalo in terms of melt value? They both melt down into pure gold in equal amounts. The only difference is the design & any potential numismatic value.

    Not according to Wikipedia.

    According to Wikipedia AGEs are only being minted at a fraction of the number as AGEs only a decade ago.

    Ease of resale. AGEs and Buffalos can be sold for spot or above. I’ve bought maples and other world gold for melt.

    I believe you can sell Gold Britannia’s from the Royal Mint over spot as well.

    I just don’t understand why the Platinum Eagle has a face value of $100 but the Gold Eagle has a face value of $50 even though Gold is $1900+ an ounce and Platinum is barely half of that.

    you must have recently entered "watching pm's"

    platinum is rarer than gold and for as long as I can remember was priced over gold. it has only been in the past few years that platinum is in the basement.

    it doesn't help that it isn't widely collected and thus has a wide buy-sell spread. also, platinum was once widely used in catalytic converters but now it is palladium.

    unknown. call one of the major sellers and ask what their buy price is then report back to us.

    although I will add that in the usa the us mint bullion has much better buyback prices over spot

    My local coin dealer actually pays $9.99/oz over spot for Britannias, Krugerrands, Gold Eagles, and Chinese Pandas.

    U.S. gold has better liquidity here in the states... Much easier to trade, sell or barter. Cheers, RickO

    Nice one. Now to fill in the previous dates to 1986. Then, as collectors go :blush: .... you can show us the set.

    I've tried and failed, on many occasions. ( to do a date run.) You're on the right track :love:

    Yeah right! 😂

    1986 - 2019 is 33 years.

    33 years x $2,000 per coin is $66,000 dollars! 😳

    That’s not even including the fact that many of them will cost more than spot + $100.

    It should be 34 years but I agree with your point.
