Fractional gold pieces almost always command high premiums over spot price, smaller the coin, higher the premium. Thatís why I like the large coins like the gold 50 Peso, 1.2 oz. gold with low premium over spot. I believe the best deals are sovereign gold pieces.

I consider .9999 Canadian maples a nice 24k gold coin with low premium.
Premium on a 1/10 oz. is 12%
Premium on a 1 oz. is only 4%

Btw, I have two quart jars full of clad, one is full of pennies. I donít dig a lot of it, but thatís about three or four years worth.

6 years of clad laying around ?

Time to rent a small electric cement mixer and get the job done Mike .
It may take you an entire day to separate the coppers out alone .
Sounds like a good time .

Appreciate your reply Digger. I'm sure you can imagine how many plugs were dug for this return. Probably be the only Gold Coin I will ever have.

You two guys have been with me throughout this year and know I have hunted pretty hard. This is the icing for what has been some of the best times I've had in this hobby. I just want to say thank you for your support and friendship. Trapper

Well she pays for my UK flight each year. Thinking too of another machine other than the 7 green ones I own from a cheap company.

I only found $85 this year so I cashed it in and went to the casino. A few hours later I had won an additional $370. Can I count this as finds since I had my pinpointer in my pocket?? 🙄💰😁 Iíll probably just blow it all at the casino next weekend. 🤑
