    I have a friend coming up one one of those landmark birthdays who is a gold freak and I'd like to get a gift of gold. But I'm not sure what to get.

    Where do you buy gold without getting ripped off and what should be bought? I had in mind a gold bar but that is probably too expensive.

    Any ideas?

    How about having a small charm or something made for her that is unique to her.

    I know I'd love a little gold Louboutin shoe... with the red sole. I bet Jillian would agree with me. LOL

    have you considered a gold coin, with other aside from its gold content?

    Herakles Numismatics, Inc.


    I highly recommend them..;)

    I gave out some Gold Eagles last Christmas.
    They seemed to be well appreciated.

    A Saint Gauden's $20.00 gold coin is a great investment and a beautiful gift. If you need my address PM me!
