A question we are often asked is: Why should I buy a pre-owned coin or bar rather than a new one?
The answer is a simple one: they are normally cheaper in bullion terms.
The exception to the rule may be a rare or exclusive coin which could have historical value, and therefore fetch a premium over precious metal prices. But in terms of physical amounts of gold or silver for your money, then the pre-owned products are often the best.
In truth in such a competitive market place as the internet, new coins and bars have never sold at such low premiums. Therefore, the difference between old and new products selling price has never been smaller, but there is still a little bit to be saved and it all helps.
