Last Post for Today...

| silverbug22

Since I seem to be on a bit of a bullion kick, thought I'd share my first gram of palladium that I've acquired! I know these 1-gram bars are really small, but they're also kind of awesome. Crazy to see any sort of detail on these despite being smaller than a finger nail. I also was able to scoop up a couple grams of platinum as well as a gram card of gold! These are a bit on the expensive side given the current spot prices of gold, platinum and palladium, so being able to buy these tiny fractional bars makes stacking much more affordable. I typically don't share how much I pay for my acquisitions, but I think here it makes sense: $45/gram for the platinum bars, $60 for the gold card, and $85 for the palladium bar. Not too bad, and keep in mind those prices were given to me by a long time friend/dealer when spot prices were even lower than where they are now...

1982 Libertads

Coins | silverbug22

Forgot to add these to the last post as well; normally I do stray away from foreign bullion as well, but I just had to have these given their history and how gorgeous the reverse design is on them. Both of these Libertads are in remarkably good shape, and one even has a very slight bit of toning on the rim as well! The Mexican mint is really truly incredible when it comes to minting coins that I believe to be works of art, and while the American Silver Eagle will always have a special place in my heart, I personally prefer the Libertad designs seeing as they really do jump out at you.

1945 Dos Pesos Gold Coins

Coins | silverbug22

I typically refuse to buy foreign currency seeing as my area of expertise and interest lies in the realm of all things American, but when these two Dos Pesos gold coins came up, I just had to have them! Weighing in at around 1.5 grams each and containing 90% gold content, I was actually able to pick these up around 3% over spot during the most recent dip. The detail on these things is absolutely incredible, and despite being around 80 years old, their luster has remained nearly untouched. To be completely honest, I did not realize how small these would be (about the size of a nickel), but I guess that's just a convenient excuse for me to buy some of the larger gold coins minted by Mexico!

Massive Slab!

Coins | silverbug22

I bought a roll of ATB quarters about 2 years ago during the pandemic dip, and ever since I've wanted to get one in one of the massive NGC slabs. Grade wasn't really a concern for me seeing as I just wanted to have a huge slab to add to my silver collection, but I lucked out finding a near-perfect Australian Koala in PF69 UCAM for well below market (thanks to the most recent dip). I also was able to scoop up a gold 0.5 gram Kangaroo from the same seller, and although it is very, very small, I am a HUGE fan. I love the detail on such a small coin and it's extremely affordable despite being gold. And just for size reference, that Kangaroo is slightly smaller than a dime, showing just how massive that slab really is.

Sorry for the Absence!

Coins | silverbug22

Hello all!Sorry for my lack of posting; I actually made several posts in the last year that I apparently either forgot to publish or there was some glitch that deleted them, but I'm back now and ready to get posting! Keep your eyes pealed in the next few weeks for a couple updates about my collection and some super cool new coins and bullion I've gotten in the last couple weeks
