We lost another dear friend on Monday. I haven’t written about it yet because I was involved in helping with the Memorial. Norm’s death was expected as he had emphysema and had been suffering for a long time. It was a relief when he was able to pass away. His dear wife and son were with him along with the Hospice nurse that helped ease his suffering. His family and friends are very grateful to this angel in human form.
The second value is the precious metal value of the coin. For instance pre-1965 dimes, quarters, and nickels actually have a high content of silver. The use of silver was discontinued in this coinage because the cost of the metal rose to the point that the metal content of the coin was worth more than the face value. Many of us can remember the same thing happening to the price of copper and the changing of the metal content in a penny to compensate for the rising cost of the precious metal in 1982.
Free competition on a public order board between all users is by far the best way of ensuring a healthy (i.e. narrow) spread, and deep liquidity. I’m fairly certain there are no other marketplaces in gold where 36,000 users are free to bid and offer high integrity gold bullion to each other.

You could end up losing the coin value of silver dollars or gold coin value to the interest on a credit card. Use a credit card only if you have to, and pay off the principle every month, if you do use one. Otherwise use a different way to purchase your coins.
