Any reason why you don't? Their security feature seems pretty quick and nifty and easily demonstrated to even people not familiar with PM.
Hoping it does soon. The 500 count maple leafs were on sale before too but that's way beyond my credit card limits.
I think I have (or had and sold) a handful of them. I didn't like the look and I know several years back there were a lot of fakes. If that's less of a concern now, that's good

To piggyback off the last topic, is it worth spending the extra $10 or so per oz of gold to get RCM versus Sunshine if I might sell the bar down the road?

Also, how much over spot is it worth it to buy or should I wait for deals at spot?

I would have no issue buying Sunshine mint bars.....but for $10.00 on a $1,700 purchase, I would be more inclined to spend it on a RCM bar.

I tend to wait for deals as opposed to purchasing at full price. Quite often someone will leave a post here looking to unload some gold at spot. All of the larger dealers occasionaly will run specials with reduced markups over spot. Last weekend I was at a flea market and purchased this 1998 gold US eagle at spot. So the deals can be found if you are patient.

Gold is not trading right now. I believe gold starts trading again at 6:00 pm.....any change in price is a result currency fluctuations.

I am looking to put approx. $100K into silver. What would be the best bang for my buck (size/processor) and where should I make the purchase?
