    You probably should put some powder on them or something

    I was surfing Apmex and saw they have a Mexican 20 Peso for consiberaly less premium than the 50 Peso and the 20 is .4823 oz, so a nice size and seems cheap for fractional at barely a $75 premium.

    I dont think i can justify that 50 Peso at a $300 premium after seeing that! Seems backwards.

    Premiums on 50 pesos in USA seem too strong across the board. :eek: Could buy them from Europe for US$2315 today...

    Then again, I wouldn't sell my 20 pesos for less than 10% premium :D

    $964.13 from Apmex and at .4823 of an oz, spot was $1855 so about $895 in gold.

    Seems like a great deal for some old Mexican gold!
    Its not the $25 premiums from back in the day but could be worse.

    The 2022 Gold Eagles have a decent price too but they are kind of lame compared to the vintage stuff. At least for me.

    2022 AGE looks more like a budgie. Compare that with 2022 silver PM WTE (also available in gold), that coin captures the majesty of an eagle.

    Sold for $780.000 + 22%. And I'd say it went cheap. The auctioneer flocked off those rare proofs like they were yesterday's herrings... :confused:

    Yes, it was a spectacle to behold.

    A lot of the proof gold pieces in the Verene collection went for double and even triple the estimates.

    And even some of the humble silver crowns made up to $100,000!

    The decline in the spot prices does not seem to affect the top end of town.
