Your thoughts on PR70 vs MS70? value wise longterm.

I don't think it matters too much, as long as the company that did the grading is respectable.


Do you like PCGS or NGC for grading? Face value vs weight & purity makes no difference to me personally. With this being said the proof coins are stunning!! When it comes to pure aesthetics in my opinion the proofs always look better than the BU coins, no matter if it's an Eagle, Libertad, Buffalo, etc.

Proofs don't only look better, they also build value better. I really like my proof Maple Leaf Panda Privy. When it comes down to grading, I'm alright with PCGS or NGC. However, if I wanna pay less for the same coin, I'll go with NGC.

PCGS is better in my view. The privy marking, what is the reason behind it?

Thanks, and yeah, you'd be much better off buying older pieces or at the very least, ones graded ms70.

It could go up drastically, if people demanded the actual gold instead of the paper representation of the gold they purchase. Gold sellers are selling more gold than really exists. I suggest you get a hold of the real thing before everybody asks.

The reality of the situation is less then 1% of the population has a clue whats going on . It disheartens me that so many good hard working people will lose there life's savings if this plays out. Pure gold 9999 is always better then any silly face value. Gold is the only way to protect yourself from the wealth transfer.


It sounds like to me that in the death throws the currency and stocks will run the whole gambit of symptoms with gold and silver making a giant run near the end. When we are hungry enough the elite will offer us the DEAL, the deal will be no cash money. A world currency on computer.We know they will be responsible with that higher level of control.
