Yes, I use the same PIC to explain that I test all my coins to make sure they are real. I actually test everything I buy, as I buy them, not when I post them as a donation here.

I did some research: It’s 90% gold, but it’s STILL A FULL 1/4 OUNCE OF PURE GOLD. They add additional metal to this to make the coin harder. You’re still getting an 1/4 ounce of gold. Here are some fresh PICs and a link to more information about the coin. It’s actually a proof, which is why it sells for so much more than 1/4 ounce of melt gold.

Here is a link for more info on the coin:

Well, then…

And it’s a PROOF (the highest grade). The additional metal doesn’t displace any of your gold, it is added in addition to make the metal harder and more durable.

Every coin that has ever been auctioned went to someone who got a screaming deal. Often, they don’t even command the melt price of the metal, which is insane.

If you want to make certain you aren’t over paying for gold, you’re safe in placing a bid that is at least the melt price of the metal. This is 1/4 ounce and spot gold is about $1,950 today. So you won’t go wrong with a bid of $487.

Also, if I ever see any member over-bidding for these coins, I’ll jump in and stop you. Historically though, the winning bid is way, way less than they are worth and can instantly be resold for.
