    The silver/gold ratio is about 70:1 right now.

    If I sold some gold eagles to them and traded them for silver, can someone tell me how close to that ratio would I actually get? I'm looking at swapping for some silver eagles or silver maple leafs.

    Would I even get 60 to 1 in the swap?

    thanks for any info!

    My guess is 80:1 but I'd just call them in the morning.

    They don't swap. What they do is two separate retail transactions, buy at their posted price and sell at their posted price.

    That is what I thought. Meaning I'd probably be lucky to get 60 to 1 when it's actually 70 to 1.....correct?

    APMEX will buy your:

    2014 1 oz Gold American Eagle BU
    Buy Price:*$1,220.60

    This is normally based on a 10k value transaction, they are paying over melt and you can buy silver at .59 over and up so your ratios should be close on it.

    Yeah 60:1 looks like it.

    Sell GAE for $1220.60 and buy SAE for ~$20.41. 1220.60/20.41= 59.80

    I'd suggest putting new money into silver rather than paying the extra commission
