When is a good deal NOT a good deal??

in steemleo •  4 months ago 


I wrote a little #menemonday blog yesterday, asking which do you prefer - GOLD or PLATINUM?

Then just as if fate was pointing me in the right direction for reassurance that #mene24k is the only way to go, I had an email from a "coin dealer", here in the UK, asking me to check out their unbelievable BLACK FRIDAY WEEKEND DEALS!! When this little fella caught my eye:


A pure gold Teddy bear for just £50 ($64.75US).... Not bad, let's see what you get for your money.


Amazing!! Save 1/3, that's a massive £25 OFF, just £50 for a great little, cute Teddy bear. Mrs W will love that.

Hang on a minute, where have a seen something similar?? You guessed it #mene. So let's do a quick little comparison to see how they match up.



First thing I noticed was the weight. Only 0.5g of gold.... Which would bring this coin in at £100 PER GRAM.



So for an easy comparison and maths, let's round this bear UP to $206.

206/3.28g = $62.80 (£48.52) PER GRAM.

Thats an incredible saving of over £50 per gram weight. So for a comparable example, if we scaled up or bought the equivalent weight of the Teddy bear coins, we would need to spend a whopping £328 ($424.73US) to get the same amount of gold as the mene bear has.


Which would you rather spend $206 OR $425??

Surely there's only one answer and it has to be #MENE.

I think this just might be one of my favorite #menemaniac posts in a long long time!

Excellent job @welshstacker in explaining how expensive EVERYONE ELSE When compared to Mene.

It is only 11:57 on the west coast here in the states so I’m going to go ahead and qualify this is the last #menemonday post of the day!
