Where do you buy gold coins in the US?

Hey guys, since in Turkey it is so easy and simple to buy gold coins (with set market price for day), I got confused here in the US on how to buy some to keep... Anyone who has been collecting them here in the Turkish community? What is your buying strategy. I don't live in NY so, I don't have access to gold shop districts.

I don't live and familiar with gold purchasing in the US but you may want to check this out:

How can I get bulk ornamental coins for Belly Dance costumes?

I think they are made in Turkey, or Pakistan. They are pressed and perforated, either gold or silver tone for sewing onto belly dancewear. They are lightweight.Have Egyptian style embossed design. I want to buy kilos, not lots of 200 or even 1000. Kilos.

Hi! I've been making bellydance costumes for 5 years now, and as far as I know, coins don't come by the kilo or pound, they come in packs of 100 to 1000. I make tribal costumes for sale, but I do make some cabaret costumes for myself, and last time I ordered coins I researched and the best deal (even with shipping from CA to USA) was this store on ebay:
http://stores.ebay.com/BellyMix_Belly-Dance_Loose-Coins-Beads_W0QQcolZ4QQdirZ1QQfsubZ12904346QQftidZ2QQtZkm

By the way, 200 coins weigh around 375 grams, so the packs of 800 that they sell are 1.5 kilo packs.

There is also a wholesaler that a lot of belly dance supply stores use - it's been a while since I looked thru their catalog, but I'm reasonably sure they had the thinner coins:

What's the best thing you've ever bought or used from a vending/coin op machine?

I want to begin selling wacky and new products by vending machines in Turkey. What's the best thing you've ever bought or want to buy or use from a vending or coin op machine?
Remember gambling is illegal in Turkey and we need a high profit rate of above 30% with or without products.

ooh! A mini toothbrush and toothpaste that folded into a little plastic tube. Awesome!


I am trying to understand exactly why Turkey is considered such an important ally of the USA by our State Dep?


Location, location, location.


what does this mean?

i found a turkey coin. and it says its 500 liras. on the front it says turkiye cumhuriyeti. anybody know how much its worth in U.S dollars?... if it is even worth anything!!
the coin is an 1991.

The Turkish 500 lira coin is made of alluminium bronze alloy, and minted from 1989 to 1997. But unfortunately the high inflation rate that hit Turkey in the 1990s up to the turn of millennium had forced the country to changed its coin series and introduced higher denomination pieces a few times, thus making the 500 lira coin obsolete and worthless then. However, obsolete coins are still being actively traded in the numismatic community, with hobbyists and dealers alike trading these coins in the $0.10 to $0.25 value range. Turkey has, since January 1st 2005 been using the new currency unit called the "New Turkish Lira".


What if we do nothing about amnesty?


Without the Amnesty Program, it will be difficult for the illegal aliens to get government benefits such as subsidized housing, loans under Federal programs, and get government jobs (out side of military). But I don’t think it would make any difference when it comes to paying taxes (because many work under the table), getting welfare checks, free medical, free lunches at school, participation in before and after school programs their children, and free college education for those who make it to college.
