    Directtv has a number of sales channels running coin shows. Most of them seem to be selling Morgan silver dollars for big bucks. I channel surfed on to one with a Jimmy Somebody selling 2.5 gold pesos for $119 plus shipping and handling. They are supposed to be 10th oz. coins at 90% gold. That didn't sound like too bad a price. Of course, they could charge a massive fee for shipping and handling. I wondered what the board thought. Is this guy actually an honest dealer?

    ok, that doesn't sound good. I guess that I'll just watch for amusement value then.

    Easy to remember, 50 Peso = 1.2057 Troy ounces devided by 50 = 0.024114 per peso. Dos Peso = 0.04822, Dos y media = 0.06028 and so forth, I love my Pesos.:love:

    My local coin guy has these little fellas for $63 each right now, looked to have around 20 of them.
    He also had around the same number of the one size bigger 2 1/2 Peso for $80.
    I should bring a couple of 1 oz eagles in and clean him out of fractionals!! :biggrin:

    on the other side I'm in SoCal so I'm figuring out that Mexican old coins and bullion are almost as good as ours. Of course only under spot; I'll suffer from withdrawal next month when Bing goes away :)

    I see

    mexican 50 peso
    mexican 20 peso
    mexican 10 peso
    mexican 5 peso
    mexican 2.5 peso

    listed in my inventory I love the 20 pesos with the SUNDIAL on them too

    and the HUGE GRANDE 50 Peso piece is rather nice too. I imagine when gold hits

    $2000 this year they'll bring over $2500 each too...

    Buy the LITTLE ones the ounces are getting too expensive

    For anyone wanting information on gold coins, there is a dealer in the UK called tax free gold (google it) that has an enormous database of about every gold coin (w/pics). Whenever I see something on ebay that I have little knowledge in I go there. A bit hard to navigate at first. I've been slowly print screening and pasting onto a spread sheet the information I find whenever I go there. Good self education and fascinating. I also recently went to the library and found a huge book on about every gold coin ever made. Let me tell you, there has been a s-load of gold coins made over history. I had no idea there was that many.

    love my 2.5 gold peso...would've grabbed another today, but i promised my friend's son 2 SAE's, and if HE was getting two, then so was I, right?? :D

    had $100, paid $80, and of course THEN i saw the 2.5 peso for $75.

    didn't have the heart to tell the kid he had to sell back his first silver at a loss. lol

    p.s. this thread will probably have me driving past there again tomorrow...something about 1.878 grams is fun.
