Krugerands

Anyone have a good place to buy Krugerands? Im looking to make a small purchase (one or two) and would like to walk away with the most for my money. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you.

Local coin stores and most website sell them for 50-70 dollars over spot. It doesn't seem to matter much where you buy from. You should also take shipping into account.

I'm with Benjamen on this one. Although I am a silver guy, my LCS is often close to or even better than Apmex as regards small buys.

Thanks guys - problem is I don't have a LCS. The shipping is what's killing me. Guess I'll try to find one.

I also agree with ancona and Benjamen, a local coin store is where I get mine. He rarely is out of stock, and yeah you can call before you drive over...

If I ever get REAL DOUGH, I will have to take a look at Tulving, who offers really low premiums all things considered (but 20 oz Au minimum).

Appreciate it. This thread may be taking a turn here, but maybe someone can shed some light. Note I have not invested in physical gold before (only silver) and I am looking for some pointers.

I like the Krugerrands because they're mixed with other less maleable metals and seem less prone to damage, but they seem to command a higher premium than some other bullion (private mint bars, Kangaroos). Does this make a difference in durability?

When you buy gold coins do they usually come sealed?

Thanks.

As with most coins, there are two versions - proof and bullion. Proof coins might be sealed, but bullion generally is not.

Appreciate the help everyone. Ended up getting Mex 50 instead (lower premium).

I just bought a Krugerrand

But it's kind of creeping me out.
