Wal-Mart Joins the Online Coin Market

It’s no secret that retail giant, Wal-Mart, has been investing very heavily on it’s e-commerce department — waging a full-scale attack on Amazon and eBay. It’s not surprising then to see them enter the numismatic fray as well. Tucked away in their “Jewelry” category (link), you’ll find many modern world issues, proof sets, and other retail-friendly items. Are better date coins next? Currently, APMEX and SD Bullion offer items on the site. I expect we will see more in coming days, especially as this launch appears to coincide nicely with the rising bullion market.
