If anybody thinks they can buy an ounce of gold for that price......well.......I'll just say, folks should do a little research BEFORE making certain purchases !
I too have been seeing this commercial on tv. My fiancee' and my mom have both commented that they've "seen my gold Buffalo on tv selling for an incredible
price !".......good grief !
I had to explain that my two gold 2006 Buffs are S.O.L.I.D. 1oz. gold
minted 100% by the United States Mint. And that you couldn't possibly pay less than $50.00 for one of these !
They're even worth more than "spot price" gold !
It's yet another way for snake oil salesmen to make money off the real thing....perfectly legally. You get exactly what they say you'll get.....but OH MY GOODNESS !
Through the past couple years, I've seen these in magazines too.....they do tell you (and you can see) that it's only a copy....but....it's still disconcerning to me.
"Layered" in gold, or platinum, or silver, or anything else, when you're talking about a coin
a good thing.....and will always
be overpriced, and is NOT
a wise investment, or
a good addition to any coin collection, at any
It might look "neat"......but it's never going to be worth anything to anybody.....IMHO.
I understand the desire to have a cheaper "copy" of the real thing, if one can't afford the real thing.....but it's not a good idea.
Older coins can be represented this way.....and displayed proudly (with some copies even having some value) in a collection, but this Buffalo thing seems very "seperate" to me.
