Wells Fargo and now Synchrony Bank is shutting down lines of credit.   Synchrony Bank is Paypal.   Expect more banks to join in...

Due to increased paypal fees, dealers in Canada are switching over to "Interac".
Are there other options?

Yahoo Finance  "Can Reddit's silver Apes beat the market?"

Rick Harrison of "we pay you little" Gold & Silver Pawn Stars has been involved w/ bullion most of his life and his contacts are having a very difficult time sourcing silver.   He also says there is usually a good supply of Rolex watches but none now.   The people are holding anything of value....

Gold jumped up and now down.  That up helped sales.  Here are 3...

1986P PF 70 1/20 proof gold panda   $821.76   SOLD

1994  PF 69 Wildlife 1/4 gold panda   $3,000  SOLD

1985  PF 69 Xinjiang 1 oz silver   $3,500  SOLD

Many new collectors/bullion buyers cannot understand why anyone would pay so much for so little silver/gold.   They will understand when it is too late...

There is a lot of demand for 1/10 and 1/20 right now.   I might be a fool for selling into it, as the supply of fresh coins is very limited.  In the last week, I even sold 1988, 1991, 1992, and 1993 PF69 proof sets.  Selling a lot MS70 coins on ebay, many coins haven't been offered in a long time, and are getting record prices compared to the last few years, nowhere near the 2011 peak but close on some. 

I was set up at ANA Monday-Wednesday last week and walked Thursday and Friday.  It was the best ANA show I had since 2011.  Everyday opportunities to buy and sell.  So much material that was sitting on the sidelines came out and was absorbed equally fast.  There were times where I would buy coins at one table and carry it over to another table and flip 70% of them for a nice profit and submit the rest for grading.  Retail attendance was weak (due to a drop in gold and covid travel challenges), but those that came spent money.  Nobody was there to look at coins, they were there to buy and sell, otherwise, they stayed home.  Many dealers canceled at the last moment on the show due to covid, low gold price, busy, etc - their cancelations helped make it a great show because those that were there came to do business.  Also, many of us are under the impression future shows this year will be canceled due to covid which encouraged more transactions than usual. 

The only sour note was bullion spreads have collapsed in the last 3 months, silver eagles were +$10, now +$5, gold eagles/buffalos were +$150, now +$60, and platinum eagles were +$175, now +$75.  The collapse is hard to explain except that supply (mainly from US mint) exceeds the demand.  In the past US Mint was slow at getting products to dealers, but now it is shipping without delay so spreads have come down.  Lesson for the newbies, don't chase bullion when spreads are high, it will always correct back down, that is the curse of commodity markets, high prices will lead to higher supply, it just takes time (1 year in this case due to covid).

It is times like these it is great to be an investor, dealer, and collector.  I hope it is the early innings of a bull market rather than the top.

It is the early innings of a bull market, just look at Afghanistan.   I keep track of your listings daily and you are selling more Chinese than anyone else.   Wish i could buy them all!   Some rare grade pandas for decent prices....

Listed lowest pop 1/20 oz of the gold panda series.  This is the first time ever in 13 years that I actually had an extra PF69 for sale.

1992 gold panda proof census in PF69:
35  1oz
72  1/2 oz
24  1/4 oz
61  1/10 oz
40  1/20 oz

A usual, nice pandas!    For you new collectors and my friends that read this forum, lets look at the 1992 & 94 proof gold panda numbers.   There is 1) Plan Mintage 2) Actual Mintage 3) Surviving pop
1992 has 806 Actual mint
1994 has 854 Actual mint

1992 NGC pop   My numbers maybe a few off but close enough...
1 oz       133
1/2 oz    113
1/4 oz    155
1/10 oz  121
1/20 oz  123
Compare that to Actual Mint of 806 (155 highest graded pop).   The 1992 & 94 have been in demand for some time so most have probably been graded.   The NGC numbers show that surviving pop could easily be 1/2 of Actual Mint or less.   How about 1979 to 1980's Chinese?   Coins have always been favored while medals were not, so many more melted or abused.   This is why so many collect medals too.

1994
1/10 oz   115
1/20 oz   115
Again 854 Actual Mintage.  Surviving pop could be very low.   How about other early year coins?  Medals?   Very low numbers means big price jump when the market/demand matures...

1940's 5 Tael MS 61 Gold    $36,998   SOLD   Rare gold is selling...

1901 Sinkiang gold  $168,998    No longer available  Did it Sell? 

(100) 50C junk silver 1/2 dollars  $1,025  SOLD  $10.25 each

I track junk silver dimes.  A week ago about $3.70 each small quantities.  Today i see sales at $4 as high as $5 each.  Large quantities sell for less.  I get feedback and most local coin shops want at least $3.50 per dime w/ no negotiation.  Smallest form of recognizable currency. I was told junk silver is seeing demand but good quantity on ebay.  Most buyers want local coin shop and not ebay...

1988 911 Turbo Porsche w/ 6,500 miles.  $285,000!  SOLD  6 months to a year ago w/ this mileage they sold about $150,000.  Stock market crashed in 1987, I was fortunate to buy a 1986 911 Turbo w/ unique colors for about $45,000 w/ 5k miles.  Portland OR car shops talked about this 911 due to color combo.  Sold it 1 yr later to get into real estate.  Best ride i have ever owned, love them.  Got my $ back too...
