United States Mint Launches New Palladium Bullion Coin Program

Sales to Authorized Purchasers begin September 25

WASHINGTON – The United States Mint today announced it will begin for the first time sales of a one-ounce American Eagle Palladium Bullion Coin to Authorized Purchasers on September 25.

As with American Eagle Gold and Silver Bullion Coins, American Eagle Palladium Bullion Coins will be made available through the United States Mint’s Authorized Purchaser network. Authorized Purchasers consist of major coin and precious metals wholesalers, brokerage firms, banks, and other participating financial intermediaries.

American Eagle Palladium Bullion Coins will be made available to United States Mint Authorized Purchasers at a 6.25 percent premium over the prevailing price of palladium.

Public Law 119-94 requires the Secretary of the Treasury to mint and issue palladium bullion coins weighing one troy ounce of .9995 fine palladium, with a face value of $25.00, in such quantities as the Secretary determines appropriate to meet demand. Only coins in the one-troy ounce size are permitted; fractional sizes are not authorized. Title 31 U.S.C. Section 5112(v) authorizes the Secretary to mint and issue proof and uncirculated versions of the one-ounce palladium bullion coins.

As mandated by the law, the obverse design of the palladium coin is an adaptation of Adolph A. Weinman’s ‘Winged Liberty’ design used on the obverse of the so-called ‘Mercury dime,’ and the reverse design is based upon Weinman’s Eagle design for the 1907 American Institute of Architects (AIA) gold medal. In developing the coin, the United States Mint was able to utilize the original reverse plaster of the AIA gold medal. This is the first time that Weinman’s AIA design appears on a U.S. coin.

Experts’ Three Tips To Avoid Gold Scams – According to Professional Numismatists Guild

(Temecula, California) September 12, 2017 – Following the recent fraud charges filed by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission against a California gold seller, a trade group composed of veteran precious metals experts is urging investors to take three important steps before making any purchases of gold, silver or platinum ​bullion ​coins or ingots.
 
“To avoid paying too much when you buy or receiving too little when you sell, and to avoid potential scams, investors absolutely must know the credentials of the bullion dealer, not just what the dealer may tout on TV advertisements or with a fancy website,” cautioned Barry Stuppler of Woodland Hills, California, President of the nonprofit Professional Numismatists Guild (www.PNGdealers.org).  “If you don’t know gold, you’d better know your gold dealer,” Stuppler emphasized.
 
The Temecula, California-based Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG) was founded in 1955.  Two years ago, PNG established an Accredited Precious Metals Dealer program, APMD (www.APMDdealers.org), to provide consumer and investor protection in the marketplace.  APMD members must adhere to a strict Code of Ethics (https://apmddealers.org/apmd-code-of-ethics/) in the buying and selling of precious metals. The firm that was recently sued by the CFTC is not a member of the APMD program.
 
“The second step investors must take is know the current spot price of the precious metal they want to buy or sell. Bullion items, such as the American Eagle, Canadian Maple Leaf and South African Krugerrand usually sell for only about three to five percent above the current spot price depending on the quantity purchased. Beware of high-pressure selling prices that would force you to wait for gold or silver to double or triple in value before you could make a profit,” warned Stuppler.
 
“The third step is to take prompt delivery of the bullion items you purchase. Be wary of sellers who want to keep and store your gold, or claim it will take months to deliver items to you. The reason many people buy precious metal coins and ingots is because of their liquidity, but if you don’t have possession of the items then you can’t act quickly when you want to sell,” said Stuppler who also is President of the California Coin and Bullion Merchants Association.
 
For additional information about the Accredited Precious Metals Dealer program, call the Professional Numismatists Guild at 951-587-8300 or visit www.APMDdealers.org. A list of APMD member-dealers is online at https://apmddealers.org/apmd-dealers
