The coins are guaranteed to be the price, quality and quantity advertised. For example, buying 10 American Eagles at $1,100 each from would $11,000, plus the 5.5 to 7 percent commission that they charge. Buying coins from a non-exchange source may or may not result in getting coins of the same quality and you might pay more to actually get them.

The difference with collector’s coin can be even more risky. Certified coins show the buyer that the coin has been independently reviewed and a base value has been established. In the past, a “Mint” coin that was purchased five years ago may only be viewed as “Very Fine” today. That difference could mean losing hundreds of dollars when trying to sell it.
