    I do not understand why anyone would buy bullion from eBay (even if genuine), when the same item can be directly bought from a dealer (Perth Mint etc) for about the same price - or often less.

    "Cheap" gold. If you sell on Ebay you'll get some stupidity low time wasting offers. The reason they do it is often sellers bite and take your offer. Earlier this year I got 55% under spot. A couple of weeks ago in the dip I got 9% under, and yes it's real gold.

    If you know what are you doing,you can buy even gold on Ebay-there are some bargains from time to time,but one must be careful. In the last month I was able to purchase 1/2 oz and 1/4oz new gold coin year of mouse for the prize of $4 and $12 respectively over spot-you can't get this from any dealer anywhere....

    But I wonder if all the research time and effort involved, plus the increased risk of fakes, should be included in the cost of any "bargain"?
