Mark Dice, from San Diego California, went out and asked people what they think or know one ounce of gold is trading for. He even gave them a window of 25%, at one point extending the window to within 50%. This was taped between 12/2009 to 4/2010 according to the price he states for Gold which was $1150. If the people guessed between $862.5 and $1437.5 they could have walked down they street, sold the coin for $20 under spot and had most likely, the equivalent of two weeks worth of work (applying a $200 removal for taxes in California).
