Free shipping on your first order when purchasing through your mobile phone.

APMEX is my favorite place to buy silver. It just hit $40 /troy ounce this morning. Usually shipping kills the order for me, but I wanted to pass this along, since I've never seen free shipping from the company before.

I was looking at kitco and seeing different prices for the 1 oz coin or 100gm bar. Can someone kindly give any pointers on why the price is different when the gold quantity is the same? Is it based on the purity or something else? I'm just interested in purchasing gold for investment reasons and shopping around to see what is the best rate available.

Thanks

Many coins have a face value (like the American Gold Eagle) which can actually be used for currency so it has a real value. A gold bar is just a hunk of rock, only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it. The American Gold Eagle is worth $50 (at the very least) which is backed by the U.S. Government. Gold Coins also have artistic and sentimental value because many are very pretty (like the Chinese Panda Coins).

I read somewhere that it is better to purchase the coins instead of the bar unless the bar would be just exchanged with jewellery. Bar could cost complications from investment purpose while the coins won't.
Is there any truth in this or any advice regarding should I go with bar vs. coin? Bar is less expensive than the coin.

Thanks

I'm not a expert when it comes to gold. I just did some research on Google and felt it was a no brainer. I bought a 2010 Gold Eagle for $1659 in April of this year. I sold it for $2000 in September when gold was selling for $1820/troy oz (close to all time high when adjusted for inflation). I wanted to buy 10 or more of them, but I could not afford to put that much on my credit card.

My gold coin was graded MS69 by PGCS and secured in a plastic container. I felt it was easier to sell the coin this way as the buyer would feel more secure. You can get 1/10th gold coins for $200. If you can't even afford this much then maybe you should just wait until you have more money.

I think gold has topped out personally. I wouldn't buy now, now is the time to sell. Look at the historic price of gold since the last 100 years. The price has spiked so high the past 3 years. It looks like a volcano. That volcano can't sustain the high price. It has to come down and I think it's going to come crashing down in a hurry within the next few years.

You can buy now, but I think you'll wind up feeling as depressed as the guy who bought my gold coin for $2k. When the price come down 2 years from now I'm going to buy some of those cute Chinese panda coins for keepers. Buy silver if you want to make some money in the near term. It's still undergoing correction for the high price of gold and it's price has finally started spiking. It's also affordable so you can definitely consider it.
