I want to buy some gold. But I'm not interested on companies that keep the gold for you, I want it shipped to my home. Having the gold in my hand and looking at it every now and then will be a motivation to keep saving/collecting. I am mostly interested in 1oz gold bullion bars and 1oz American Eagle Gold Coins (both are around a thousand bucks each). But I don't always have a thousand bucks to stash away for the sake of saving/collecting, therefore I also want a dealer that offers smaller denominations like the half ounce and quarter ounce Eagle Coins and 10/2.5/1 gram gold bars.
Searching on google results on hundreds of pages full of adds from bogus looking companies. So far I've only found 2 sites that appear legit:
I plan on ordering small 1 gram and 2.5 grams gold bars first to see how it goes, before buying my first full ounce bullion. But their selection on small bars and coins looks rather limited. I would love to find a dealer with great selection of small items, smaller than the standard 1 ounce bars and coins.
I first thought about making the thread in P&R since it is full of "bring back the gold standard" weenies. But in P&R, a thread like this would be inevitably derailed into a gold standard discussion, with numerous pro/con Obama remarks and very little helpful info.
If any Foosters around here know about any reputable/trusted gold dealers online, please provide linky. And if anybody have done bussiness with them, please post some feedback.
And for those of you who have no idea of what I'm talking about, here's a few pics of the things I want to buy/collect:
