Thread: What's the best way to sell gold coins?

  1. #1

    Default What's the best way to sell gold coins?

    Ebay seems a popular way to go, but Ebay and Paypal both take out big cuts of your profit.

    What's a good easy way to get close to spot value for gold coins?

    I know Apmex buys coins and their listed buy prices are usually reasonable, but I don't know if there are any additional costs incurred by the seller, other than shipping.

    Just go talk to a dealer at your closest coin shop... NOT PAWN SHOP!

    My dealer usually offers good prices, both for sale and resale.

    Sometimes he offers to buy back for a little MORE than it's worth.

    It all depends on how bad the dealer needs the gold.

    Yeah, this thread / community would be a great place to start. Maybe a Liberty Trade Post?

    Trading them for dollars to someone who wants to buy gold is the best way. You avoid the middleman.

    The best way is to sell them to me for $750 each

    LOL, he didn't say what size they were. I'll sell you some 1/10th ounce coins for $800 each.

    But really, this looks like the way it should be done..... take bids to see who will give you the best offer and if you like the highest bid, then sell them.

    Deal! Delivery of the gold this month, and I'll pay you in the year 2099.

    Not sure why you would want to do that.

    Trade them for Guns and Butter. or whatever it is that you need.
    Car or side of beef, whatever goods or services.
    Why would you trade them for worthless paper. and then pay tax on it??
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    True. I was hoping they were 5/oz. bars.

    trades of PM's for physical goods are just as taxable as selling for cash.

    but who is reporting the transaction for taxing purposes anyway?

    If you can trade them for something you really need and you can get more than what you could buy for the spot value of the gold in cash, then that's a good idea. Otherwise, cash makes more sense. And I don't see any reason to assume someone would necessarily report their capital gains on that. Although if they do feel like they have to, then the same principle would apply only using spot minus capital gains taxes.
    Iím not a libertarian. Iím not advocating everyone run around with no clothes on and smoke pot.

    no, people are holding gold to mitigate inflation, not to abandon the most commonly used commodity in a transaction - paper money
