    Why are all the FS gold coins in OGP disappearing from the market? About a month ago APMEX had almost all the coins for sale in OGP. About a week ago they only had one FS for sale. Now they have 2 or 3. I also checked Modern Coin and Silvertown and they only have one each available. Is someone buying them up? I thought that from all the negative comments on this Blog that no one wanted the FS coins. It seems like someone does. What’s happening?

    “I wonder why the 2012 sets are $5 cheaper ?”

    The US Mint lowered prices starting with the 2012 releases, however they retained the same old higher prices for the prior releases.

    Leo S. I’m not a FS buyer, but I’ll try to give my take on your question. IMO, and this goes for any PM coin, most collectors are more inclined to leave their gold coins in OGP. Folks getting them slabbed are anticipating a sale at some point in the future. That said, if you see coins at APMEX in OGP, chances are they were from collectors, that for whatever reason had to sell (times are rough) quickly. EBay would be more profitable, but takes a little more time and effort. Now those being bought, hard to tell if their staying in OGP or getting slabbed. Hopefully collectors forced to sell, were able to re-acquire sets later. I also believe speculators are looking at the mintages and picking these up when they become available.

    I’ve sold to APMEX before and it worked out better than selling on eBay once you factor in fees, etc. However you do have to wait to get your check from them and their minimum buy is $1,000. Modern Coin Mart also offers very good prices if you have to sell.

    If you’re looking to get rid of a few eagles or 90% silver just use eBay or your local coin shop. Here’s another note. I saw that dealers don’t like to buy 40% silver and pay very little for it. But if you sell on eBay you’ll probably do a lot better, I have.

    John – No augment here, I was generalizing. Those places you mention though are pretty straight and narrow on what they will pay. Ebay, love it or hate it, gives the seller more flexibility in the pricing and the ability to factor in those fees. There always seems to be a fish waiting to strike. My jaw drops at some of the prices achieved. But your right, many people don’t want the hassle and prices can be decent, I was just trying to give Leo S a possible answer to the recent absence of the OGP FS’s at APMEX.
