I prefer coins cos its easier to check authenticity, just measure diameter thickness and weight. (PAMP bars need to take out of the casing to measure)
Can also use the fisch instrument for common bullion.

Just get modern bullion coins and bars if you are not comfortable with numismatic coins.

Bullion coins can be checked as authentic by the features and weight alone (no need for chemical tests) as ruzmidah has stated.

In contrast, i have some sort of numismatic ones, but all of these are recent silver and gold coins (within the last 100-150 years) with the silver coins within the VF-AU condition. Having a good business relationship with my dealer, he treats the coins as bullion instead so i get them very near bullion price.

Though rare coins such as the 1906 PESO, it is still considered as a numismatic one and I can't get it cheap from him

Numismatic gold coins are generally U.S. gold coins that were minted between 1795 and 1933. Surviving gold coins from this period are of great interest to both collectors and investors today.

The most common form of gold coin ownership in the United States are gold bullion coins. There are several prominent types of gold bullion coins common throughout the world.

duno about me panda coins are already a sort of numi. But then they are just bullion despite their high premium.

Yes, indeed, know what you are buying before you do, on numis coins.
Personally i buy them because of the fundamentals and believe they are true, to a certain extend.

I think a core stack of bullion is important to have, before going into numis coins. There are pros and cons of course, theres greater risks but also greater rewards if you study more about them and know which ones are a good buy and supported fundamentally.

Personally, i like the idea of just selling 1 coin when the time is right, rather than selling multiple or even tubes of bullion or bars for the same profit.
Secondly, its a rewarding hobby as well, as you study them and the fulfillment of building sets or obtaining a coin that is both rare and in demand.

Cons is of course you have to find the right buyer as the market is small here as someone has mentioned.

Hopefully, pawn shops will start accepting silver bullion in the future, which will drive up liquidity in SG!
