I buy from a small shop, off of the beaten path. The first $2,000 I bought from him, he gave me $.10 below spot on all of my 1/2 dollars. He also sells me Silver Eagles with a $2.00 premium, when everyone else is at $3 or more over spot.

He also guarantees that he will buy back anything at spot. Find one small shop and deal with them exclusively. Building that relationship will be to your benefit. It is also a good idea to go in with as much as you can. The more you buy, the better it is for you. Maybe not a discount, but at least they will be more likely to remember you.

Remember, you can ALWAYS try to negotiate.
