    What are some of your favourite Royal Canadian Mint non-circulating legal tender (NCLT) coins or series?


    hehe NONE
    well i could say all RCM coins if they slow down their minting presses and stop overproducing


    Can anyone tell me how coin dealers can get away with paying 40 % for a one OZ gold coin


    Canada 125 & 150 sets, silver maple leafs, face value silver coins ($20 for $20) and fractional silver sets.
    If I am sitting on the fence deciding whether to purchase a ‘hot’ item that has a mintage over 5000 and is not ridiculously expensive, I’ll wait 6-12 months and snag it for considerably less than issue price. Once purchased I realize the resale value will continue to plummet but hope that it remains strong enough so I won’t lose my shirt trying to get rid of it later if I suddenly need the extra cash.


    Pizzaman, if you are being offered 40% for a bullion item don’t take it, find another dealer who will gladly pay 75-80%.
    If it’s an NCLT precious metal product already priced at 4-6 times the intrinsic value that you are peddling, the risk is yours.
