Is there anything particularly appealing about a 2008 gold maple?

    I have the opportunity to purchase 2 for $65 under spot from a long time friend and don't want to under pay.

    Yeah...that's what I like about the Maple. I don't know enough to determine whether I should pay more for the 2008 year or if $65 under spot is good. I'm happy with the price, but hey.

    If he's your friend you should pay at least spot IMHO but that's just me. It seems fair to both parties!

    P to P, spot is the correct price for bullion coins.

    The definition of bullion can vary depending upon your opinion.

    "Bulk bullion" imo is junk pieces of precious metals of known purity and weight; this can be scratched and/or tarnished. The price of this is spot.

    Premium bullion are coins and bars.

    If your friends maple leaf isn't scratched up badly, I would offer spot plus a very small premium, more of its mint. If it's barely recognizable then spot.
