Gaudens Double Eagle

Recommended Posts

Shaun Oliver has a Double Eagle for sale on Facebook (Backthemetal).

He's asking £1600, which I think is a fair price, spot + 3% (inc. postage)

I've never bought pre-33 American coins before so I'm a little wary about parting with my money.

I've attached some pics that Shaun sent me. What do you think?

I would prefer a nicer example  & wouldn't mind paying more for a graded coin, but for the price, I'm tempted.

Nice coin. Price is OK but when you can buy capital gains exempt gold at spot price on this forum I would say it's probably not a great buy.

If it's something you will enjoy along the way then go for it, but as I said if it's just acquiring gold cheap then there might be better deals.

I bought one of these coins graded PCGS MS62 dated 1922 minted in Philadelphia since I personally think it is one of best designed coins from the US Mint.

As BYB says, if you just want gold, you can buy capital gains exempt gold at spot price but if it is one of these you are after than the price appears to be decent when I checked against the place I got mine from (US based dealer who does not ship to the UK) but a trusted family member was coming to the UK so they brought the coin over to me but I still was nervous that the coin would go missing.

I just noticed that they are selling a similar graded one for about £675 more than I paid for mine back in August of 2018.
