One great advantage that our customers have is that our markup on rare coins is usually in the 10% to 15% range. This is in contrast to the common markup of 25% to 40% found at many large companies in the industry. Our price markup on bullion is often only 1% to 3% above our wholesale cost which again gives our customers the benefits of both price competitiveness and expertise.
