Seems like a no brainer to me... Fracs carry greater premiums plus you pocket 88 bucks..

DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Than No,.


Why,, your friend already has 2 oz',, why pay more,,,,


If anything he should swap it for silver at the current GSR.

I never pay extra premiums for fractionals. Patience lets them show up at spot from time to time, or certainly at the standard AGE premiums

depends on how many 1oz coins you have. if a bunch then make the trade, easy to get the $11/coin back when selling. if you only have 2-4 1oz coins then just add the fractionals with new money.

Even deals like the $10 over for 1/4 maples at Ap was good.

Well $10 over per coin is $40 per ounce, which is about the same as ounce Maple premiums.... If I needed to buy I would grab the 1/4s. If I did not, I would hold out for spot or lower.

I would make that trade. I have too many OZs.

all things considered, 11.00 per coin or the 88.00 isn't really that bad at all. Weren' the maples only 10.00 over as mentioned on that mapex sale.

I know fractionals are much easier to sell and you can also sell them for considerably more than you would an oz, on say CL or the bay or something like that.

Fractionals are better to own hands down vs oz if the cost of ownership is = or about equal, imo.

Correct, but the $10 over for a 1/4 maple frac was a rare op from an online dealer in my experience.

The 2011 1/4 maples were $496 per, while the special they had were only $446. Random dates or date of thier choice but all BU..

That a huge diff! 50 bucks!!

If you can get fracs at $10 over, do it and not even think about it! They do indeed carry handsome premiums and offer the easier liquidity.

If it was me and I had 2 GAE, I would just keep them and buy more Fracs insteads of trading over for the same amount of gold and pay $88 more.. Just doesn't seem very cost effective does it?

Also, we have just proved that better deals for fracs can and will be had, just keep your eyes peeled and read these threads, most of the deals I got was from reading theses forums.

That deal was posted on BullionStacker a while ago and the coins didn't sell out until the info hit the Kitco forum, which only took one afternoon.


Gives you a good idea of how many Lubbad bought :D
