UPDATE: PFS Buyers Club has increased the commission for each gold coin to $1,005!

Update from Nick: I wanted to add a few notes to what Greg originally wrote here.

First, given the low mintage on this coin, demand is likely to be very high. As such, some readers have noted that PFS likely won’t be the highest profit you could score. The idea behind buyers clubs is that you take out the risk of volatility and the hassle and risk of dealing with an individual buyer. In exchange, you take less profit. Obviously the buyers club intends to sell the product for more than they pay you, so there is also the chance that you could find buyers willing to pay more. On the flip side, I tried to help a family member sell a coin deal locally once and couldn’t find a local coin shop interested. They ended up selling the coins on eBay for a large profit, but with the risk of a buyer scamming them (as a seller I’ve had empty boxes “returned” to me over the years or counterfeit products returned or buyers who said they didn’t receive an item or it wasn’t as described and PayPal / eBay will almost always side with the buyer). I’ve also had many good buyers. To each his own in terms of deciding their best option. If you opt in, I advise you to honor your commitment as the ability to pre-fill their own orders is what keeps these buyers clubs offering opportunities for pajama points / profit.

However, I also want to note a caveat: as I’ve noted in previous posts and on the podcast, there is inherent risk in buyers clubs. I have personally sold 5-figures worth of products to PFS Buyers Club in the past and always gotten paid as agreed and on time. We have also listed many PFS deals and I don’t ever recall a reader reporting that they weren’t paid as agreed (on the contrary, many have reported their positive experiences). However, many readers will remember gift card reselling site The Plastic Merchant, which folded unexpectedly a few years ago and left many people empty-handed and out thousands of dollars. Indeed, I had sold a lot of gift cards to TPM and gotten paid properly for a long while – but eventually, that train stopped hard. I’m personally confident that PFS is going to pay out as expected, which is why I opted in for one with them on this deal. Given the high price these coins are likely to fetch, I imagine they already have a buyer lined up that will make it easy for them to meet their commitments to those of us who opt in, but it is worth emphasizing that the risks inherent with a buyers club are not zero. A commenter here at Frequent Miler once compared it to extending your credit line to a stranger. I’ve done enough business with PFS to feel confident in doing that for this deal, but it’s worth considering whether or not you feel comfortable with that idea.

The US Mint is releasing two new coin deals this Thursday. This may be a great opportunity to put over $2500 spend on a credit card while also making over $1,000 profit!

Quick Thoughts

If you’re not interested in collecting coins, limited production coin deals like these can make sense because they often resell for much more than the purchase price.  If you’re not interested in the risk of buying prospectively in the hopes of selling for much more, you can lock in a fixed profit through a buying club…

PFS Buyers Club

PFS Buyers Club offers an easy way to get a fixed profit from coin deals.  For the deals listed above, PFS Buyers Club is offering the following commissions (in other words, they’ll cover the amount you paid plus this much more):

  • V75 Gold: $525.05 $1,000.05 
  • V75 Silver: $62.05

I’ve never done one of these deals through PFS Buyers Club, but I’ve heard numerous positive data points.

Additional Tips For This Deal

  • Make sure you have an active US Mint account before you go to buy the coins. If you don’t, you can register here https://catalog.usmint.gov/on/demandware.store/Sites-USM-Site/default/Account-StartRegister
  • Make sure your US Mint account has your correct address – it’s best if your billing and shipping addresses are the same.
  • Make sure your US Mint account has your up-to-date credit card info stored.
  • Make sure you are available a bit prior to 12pm Eastern (9am Pacific) so that you’re signed in and ready.  The gold coin is expected to sell out very quickly.
  • If you’re placing multiple orders to different households, make sure that neither shipping nor billing addresses are duplicates.

Will I Be Doing This Deal?

Even though I have heard good things from friends about PFS Buyers Club, I haven’t done any of these deals in the past.  This time, though, the profit potential has me interested.  Lock in over $500 $1,000 profit with just one coin?  Sure, sign me up!  Of course, I do expect that this will be an exercise in frustration since the demand for the gold coin offer will likely be huge.  In other words, I’ll be surprised if I manage to snag a coin before they’re all sold out.  That said, for over $1,000 profit, I’m willing to put in the 5 or 10 minutes of madly clicking and refreshing my browser to try to buy the coin.  And as a consolation prize, my bet is that it will be pretty easy to buy the silver coin since there will be so many more of them available.  If so, that will be an easy $62 profit.  Not a bad consolation.
