The difference between gpld coins and other popular collectibles like, say, baseball cards, is that gold can lose value....quickly. plus coins are subject to huge bid-ask spreads when they are bought and sold.

If a gold or precious metal, hedge is what you seek, stick with a gold mutual fund or ETF.
