The United States Mint currently has 12 vendors authorized to
purchase U.S. gold, silver and platinum bullion coins.
None of the Mint's bullion issues are sold directly to the public,
but are instead sold to authorized purchasers. One of the primary
requirements to become an authorized purchaser is the ability to offer
the public a two-way market, both selling and buying back the bullion coins.
What coin struck in the second half of the 20th
century has a doubled die obverse, dates of two sizes and an
RPM? John Wexler explains.
Also inside this issue, Joel Orosz checks out what was in the
first “superstar” collection’s auction catalog.
The U.S. Mint only sells the coins. Criteria to become an
authorized purchaser for American Eagle gold, silver and
platinum bullion coins, American Buffalo gold bullion coins, and
America the Beautiful 5-ounce silver bullion quarter dollars is found
on the U.S. Mint website.
Nine of the 12 APs are located in the geographic United States, two
are located in Europe and one is headquartered in Japan.
