Don’t Pay ‘Outrageous’ Prices

0 Shares

Dear Bob,

I called National Bullion and Currency Depository on Jan 11th to order some of the $5 gold eagles.  Jason White took my order.  He informed me that they were sold out but I could get the $10 gold eagle for the same price per oz which was $840 for each of the $10 coins.  I then put an order in for 6 of the 1/2 oz coins for a total of $5040 + $20.00 S & H.  I received my order today, but they must have gotten something screwed up.

What I received was:

 

QtyDescriptionAmount
12004 $10 gold eagle proof 701225.00
12006 $25 gold eagle MS 702056.00
2$25 gold eagle – bullion1680.00
Shipping and handling20.00
TOTAL$4981.00

 

I don’t buy numismatic coins but even if I did, their prices are outrageous.  I could buy a 2006 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle MS-70 PCGS (First Strike) from APEMX for $999.90.  I will call Jason tomorrow to cancel the order.  I expect them to arrange to have Fed Ex, UPS or USPS pick this order up from my house and give me full credit of the $4981.00.  I would be willing to keep the two, 1/2 oz bullion coins for $840 each and pay the $20.00 S&H.  Or what would you suggest?  I definitely don’t want the numismatic coins.

Dear L.J.M.,

I would send them back, keeping the ½ ounce if they agree. Then I would find a local dealer who is reputable and established and make a purchase from them for the other coins you want. You are correct in that you don’t want numismatics.

Best wishes,

Bob
