The 2019 gold Liberty went on sale yesterday (Aug. 15th). This years palladium coin goes on sale the first week in September. You only have enough money budgeted for one. Which one do you buy? (Please don't give me extraneous reasons like, "I'll take the palladium because the Liberty is going to be available and I'll be able to save enough during that time to buy it as as well.)

If those were the choices I'd go with the palladium simply because I don't own a single one.

As I've been completing the last of my big type coin needs I've explored many other potential areas of interest and one of those has been a palladium and platinum simply to round out the "End" of my US collection.

I'd go for the palladium as well, basically for the same reasons.

I would go with the palladium coin for the following reasons:

1. I think it has a more attractive overall design.

2. I think it will prove more popular with collectors in the future and have better potential for a numismatic premium over its melt value.

3. I bought the 2018 version and am curious to see how it compares to the 2019 version

OK, I'll break the trend -- If I were going to purchase one (and I have no plans to purchase either one) I'd go with the gold. Here's why --

1) I'm not really a fan of using designs from other coins on the bullion coins (don't have a single ASE or Au Buffalo either).

2) I like coins with changing designs. It's why I collect commemoratives as well. So far, the Liberty coins are changing the design with each coin.

3) Gold is a traditional coining precious metal. Palladium is an expensive industrial metal, but it hasn't really been used for coins (until the recent bullion offerings) that I'm aware of.

Palladium has been used as a coinage metal for over 50 years.

I'm most familiar with the coins of Canada (2000s), France (1980s) and Russia (1990s) but there are at least a dozen other countries that have issued palladium coins.

They are certainly not mainstream, but palladium coins are out there for someone looking for a specialized collection.

No doubt, but for only a few coins and anything in my life time is recent to me

I would chose the 2019 gold. While beautiful in design like any other coin, I would think most collectors acquire them for the long term as a retirement or for the unforeseen hardship. The market has been steady at between $1,200 to $1,400 since late 2013. That's seven years. With all that's going on, despite record economic growth, the past few weeks indicate a soon to be rise. Personally, topping the 1800 mark of 2012 in the short term is not out of the question.
