Right now we have a great
inventory of both silver and gold bullion coins. With that in mind we are
motivated to cut our premiums in order to move some of our stock. We have
silver from one-ounce coins and bars to 10-ounce bars, and 100-ounce
bars. Buy more and save more. All bullion specials are available
only at the New York Store and in person -- no mail or phone orders.
We also have a great buy
on the one-ounce British Britannia 2017 gold coin at only $28 over spot, with a
good stock available for immediate delivery. We are always buying as
well, so if you need to sell your coins, come in and see us.
