Gold took a big drop at the end of last week and did not improve by Monday morning.  This looks like a good opportunity to “buy the dip.”  We have plenty of gold bullion in stock, so we can help you do this!  We also continue to have a great stock of $10 Saints and Liberty Heads at just slightly over spot –my favorite buy at the moment. ​​
