I went to the bank yesterday to deposit some checks, and I picked up two rolls of the new Presidential $1 coins. There are 25 coins in a roll, and you pay the bank $25 for each. That seems to make sense. What doesn’t make sense are the people paying upwards of $35 for each roll on eBay.
Considering most eBay sellers overcharge for shipping, you could be looking at a 50% to 75% profit on a product that can easily be found for face value. Maybe I’ll pick up more rolls next time I visit the bank and list them on eBay.
If anything, there’s the possibility that some of the coins will be in a condition good enough to warrant grading and could be sold for more than $1. If the roll I opened is any indication, the mint rolls contain coins that are not in “mint” condition.
