Tax season is a double-edged sword for many people. No one enjoys doing their taxes, but it can also be exciting for those who are due a sizeable tax return. You may even find that you’ll receive enough money back to get yourself a little treat.
For fans of precious metals, a treat might mean that gold or silver coin you’ve had your eye on, but couldn’t justify the cost…until now.
Are you looking to get yourself a little present once you receive your tax return? Check out some of our special-edition and high-dollar bullion products that make great gifts for yourself or a loved one.
Though Provident’s wildly popular Zombucks™ series of silver rounds concluded its run years ago, we still have a select few designs available in NGC-graded slabs. The Feast design features a post-apocalyptic take on the Peace Dollar; rather than symbolizing hope, Lady Liberty is now seen in the aftermath of the zombie outbreak. This one ounce .999 fine silver round is in proof-like condition, and a custom NGC label is displayed on the slab. If you missed the original run of the Zombucks™ series or you simply want to expand on your existing collection, this graded round might be perfect for you. You might also enjoy the Barber and Starving Liberty designs.
The Gold Eagle is one of the most recognizable and beloved gold bullion coins in the world. Why not treat yourself to a whole set of them! This set includes a 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, and a 1 oz Gold Eagle, protected in plastic capsules and nestled in an attractive display box from the US Mint. That’s a total of 1.85 oz of .9167 fine gold. Because our inventory can vary, the date of the set you’ll receive will be randomized. However, each coin within the set will feature the same year of issue. This is a great item for gold investors, as well as people who enjoy collecting numismatic gold or sovereign bullion products.
If you’ve got some money to burn and you enjoy investing in precious metals, you may wish to purchase a large amount of silver like the Engelhard 100 oz silver bar. Produced by the world’s largest refiner of precious metals, you can be sure that this bar was made according to strict purity and quality standards. Though it does feature a unique serial number, this bar does not carry design elements. It was made to achieve investment value over aesthetic value. This also means that is comes at a low premium, so you get more bang for your buck!
The latest in the Queen’s Beasts series from the British Royal Mint is now on pre-sale, right in time to add to your collection during tax season. The Black Bull of Clarence marks the fifth design in this ongoing series, which features the heraldic beasts that stood guard during the Queen’s coronation ceremony. Made of one ounce of .9999 fine gold, the reverse showcases the Black Bull standing fiercely behind a shield. This coin provides a great option to those who enjoy the hobby of collecting an entire series.
Since its introduction in 1986, the Silver Eagle has become an iconic bullion coin. This set includes a graded and holdered Silver Eagle from each year between 1986 and 2018, capturing over three decades of this beloved silver coin. For collectors, a set of Eagles from each year of issue in near perfect condition might be a spectacular find. The Provident staff works hard to source unique sets like this, but they come with limited quantities. If you’re getting a sizeable tax return, now might be the time to jump on this buy while these sets are still available.
Life can be expensive, but every now and then it’s nice to be able to splurge on something for your own enjoyment. If you have the means to treat yourself this tax season, we hope you’ll consider buying a treat that you can enjoy now and in the future. Are precious metals on your list of items to buy when you have a little extra cash flow?
