Unless the eBay presale price (average $1600) rises, you only stand to make ~$130 by selling yourself after fees etc.

When you look at it that way their offer is a bit more reasonable.

Although in assuming they plan on getting the coins graded, which is why you cannot open the US Mint shipping box.

anyone familiar with the US Mint knows that 4,000 pieces is as rare as can possibly be. Buy it & have patience. You will be rewarded

Is there also a possibility that the value will drop below the $1200 selling price?

I think they are paying $50 because it is a gamble: they get it appraised and depending on that it can be worth something.

I know Excell personally and trust them. I am still not doing this for the same reason I don't drive uber to make $50.

Although, should I buy and have it sit for 10 years?? I really wouldn't mind to

Chance? Yeah.. If platinum falls to $0.01 an oz it'll be worth around $100-$200
Chances of that happening? Never lol

See chart attached. Platinum (and all metals) are very low now. Now is the time to buy

Lol, when interest rates go up you'll see just how much lower metals have to go.

What does spending 5 min of your time to make $50, have to do with driving smelly strangers around town? Unless you are making 1m+ a year, it's worth 5 minutes.

Don't need the mint to invest in metal.
But its a bad bet either way. 0% interest is going away and the dollar is about to soar.

Yes... But the 0% rate has been that way for a lonnnnnnnnnng time. People have made and lost a lot of money betting on rising rates the past few years.
