I like the lowest priced . Have you tried pinehurst coins or sd bullion? Scottsdale bullion is good also. What about the bullion exchange I am not sure if they are cheaper but might be worth a try.

JM Bullion is having a sale on Britannias.  I stocked up on some of those.  That's a decent price for the Philharmonics too.  I agree with sticking to the lowest price for the most well know that you can get.  Eagles are too high for me, as well.

At those prices I'd go brits. I like philharmonics but there is a preference for brits more generally.

Being American, I would love to have more eagles but those premiums are just rude.  The Britannia is a beautiful coin.

I did buy one 2019 eagle just to have it.  Paid somewhere around $25 at the beginning of April.  I didn't like the price but was the cheapest I found.

Reading these posts as a UK resident, I am deeply envious that you guys over the pond can pick up Britannias for just $21. That compares with around £25 including VAT here from an online dealer.

Honestly, the cheapest you find and of course you like. What about Noa's Ark of Armenia, I love that coin, I could buy them before that crises to 20.5 $/oz in Germany. Today the cheapest I find is The Owls of Niue , a beautiful coin 22 $, so for 21 $ the Britannia is really a good deal

Eagles spot plus $10 at my local coin shop today. No can do. Not wanting to waste a trip I did pick up a walking liberty half-dollar PCGS MS64 and a 14k gold ring for Mrs Metalisreal (anniversary gift).

Eagles are always too high of a premium. Beautiful coins, but too expensive to stack for pure bullion purposes. But they're nice to have in a collection, for sure.

Go with what you really like.

As many said, get the cheapest ones. Most here favour the Britannia but this forum is dominated by people from the UK. In the UK I would agree, here it's the best bet, in continental Europe the Philharmonic is more popular I think, in the US it doesn't make a difference. Personally, I would go for the Philharmonic since it's one of the few silver bullion coins without the Queen on them.

Before you all reply, "why - she is such a lovely old lady?! - well, I just say Jimmy Savile went in and out the Buckingham Palace for many years because of his good connections to one of her sons and another one of her sons was a personal guest of Epstein. I live in the UK, so the vast majority of my silver coins have the Queen on them but outside the UK I would avoid them for the stated reason.

When the time comes,, it will be interesting to see what the last coin minted with Her Majesty's face will be... I'll be buying it (assuming she doesn't outlive me...)

Thank you all. I decided to get both. 
Though I did pick up an additional Britannia with the oriental border! (She is sexy too!)

Canadian Maple Leafs are on sale this week....
