Where the *** are you going to find lower prices? In my humble experience, nowhere.

I buy gold numismatic (collector, or limited mintage; not bullion) coins from Talisman on a regular basis, and know for a fact that they ALWAYS have the lowest price in the market. They are ALWAYS lower than the mints themselves, at least upon initial release. That's why I try to buy quickly and get in on the ground floor, before they sell out and the prices go out. It's better than missing out, which I hate.

Poor investment coins recommended as “Investment Opportunity”

Purchased several coins or sets Canadian & Australia 4-5 years ago as investment opportunity coin with a hold of 2-5 years. They waffle and shy away from buying back when time comes to sell back. Stay away from this dealer for investment recommendations as they fall short of breaking even with stronger gold/silver market than when purchased. Better to buy US coins from dealers that have good buy back Polices.

Since when are dealers obligated to acquiesce to the preposterous demands of the lunatic fringe? (It's a rhetorical question - they're not.) Does your stockbroker "buy back" stocks at the prices you demand?

NO! The market sets the prices, and you may sell them back into the market at a profit or a loss - as determined by the market. Charles Schwab and Merrill Lynch (for you, old-timer) don't buy your stocks back - they broker them back into the market. Duh.

Is real estate always sold at a profit? No, prices fluctuate based on supply and demand. That's why it's called a "market economy". Duh.

I talked with Talisman Coins about your so-called review, and they suggested that your knowledge of numismatics in particular, and investments in general, is about as sophisticated as your ridiculous "review" here. You need to educate yourself before buying numismatic coins then demanding your "profit" after a few years! P.S. - Your review is disingenuous, as Talisman Coins never made you any buy-back offers.

Rather, after having you yell at them and make atrociously unreasonable demands, they simply walked away. P.P.S. - You will always get more when selling directly to another collector. A dealer has to make a profit.

Duh. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Gerald the Numismatic Guru - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
