View Full Version : APMEX gold bars

APMEX has a 24 hour deal on their own branded bars, 1 gram, 5 grams & 10 grams. I'm not much of a gold guy, but the price seems tempting. Just can't convince myself of the APMEX brand. I'd rather have gov't issued gold.

APMEX guarantees that they will buy back anything they sell. I would also believe that they have a certain level of credibility at least in the States as its easy to acquire information about the company. I would prefer Gold Eagles or Maple Leafs, but for the price (if I had the extra money today) I would jump on what APMEX is offering.

Some folks who acquire bars require it be serial numbered and have an "assay card" sealed together with the bar. Their point is that the only way a person can know for sure what metal is in a privately produced bar, is to have it or a portion of it melted and assayed = > time and expense = < liquidity.

IF it was me, I'd just go with the 1/10 oz ASE.

I can't find any since the mint stopped making them.

Once again, you all need to at least check BD..... Here is a Direct Link to Bullion Direct Nucleo for the 1/10 oz eagles.
