    You can buy American Eagle gold coins from the US Mint. You can buy other country’s gold coins thru local coin dealers. YOu might pay $ 40 over the gold price as their profit. They would re-buy it from you at $ 40 under the current gold price.
    That is what makes it a losing investment.

    Here’s the truth about buying gold coins. You can either buy what we call Numismatic Grade Coins, that’s coins that have a value greater than there intrinsic (melt value) value. This can range from modern day coinage such as the newly released Ultra High Relief from the US Mint to Ancient Roman Coins. Or you can buy what is referred to as Bullion Gold. This comes in forms ranging from 1 gram bars to 1,000 oz bars. The most popular are one 1 Ounce (31.1 gram) Bars or Rounds. Brand Bars/Rounds are American Gold Eagle, S Afrika Krugerrand, Canadian Maple Leaf, China Panda, Pamp Suisse Credit Bar, Austria Philharmonic, just to name a few. When buying these you can expect to pay a premium above spot. Lets take for example the American Gold Eagle. The Eagle is sold through the US Mint to Authorized Purchases, they then resell them to coin dealers. Currently the AP’s are charging the dealers around 5.75% over the spot price of gold. Therefore, you can expect to pay above that. One of the best dealers you could deal with is Chucks Coin in California. I do know they make a two way market daily. Yesterday they were paying spot + $ 48.00 for Eagles and selling them at spot + $ 58.00.
