RR always recommends his friend Leon but I have not used him:
"And if you need to buy coins, call my good friend, the one and only Leon, at 858 459 2228. Leon will ship anywhere in the states. I make nothing on anything Leon sells -- Zip. Nada. Nothing. One more thing -- Leon is totally honest."
Although I directed my question to Flint, everybody please feel free to join in. I am kind of at a crossroads right now as I feel my exposure to gold mining stocks is about where I want for now and I do not own any physical gold presently. I would like to hear other's opinions on various avenues to acquire gold coins and/or bullion.
