The U.S. Mint has allocated 1,043,500 ounces of American Eagle Silver bullion coins for sale this week, an increase of 73,500 over last week’s figure.

The weekly allocation totals have hovered just above or below one million ounces in recent weeks. As the Mint’s supply looks more consistent, authorized purchasers have been a bit slower to absorb available inventory. Last week’s allocation of 970,000 was not fully exhausted prior to today.

American Eagle Silver bullion coins are selling at a record pace this year. A total of 38,986,000 have been sold already in 2015, and last year’s all-time… Full article at the source>

DrakeRev

The Treasury of the British Virgin Islands Government has launched a new coin celebrating the 475th anniversary of the birth of Sir Francis Drake (c. 1540 – 1596). Considered one of the greatest sea captains of all time, Drake was born in Devonshire, England around 1540 and first took to the seas at the age of 12 or 13. He was to become a successful privateer, a private person or ship authorized by a government to attack foreign vessels during wartime.

Drake is also remembered as a talented navigator who was commissioned by Queen Elizabeth I to be the head of… Full article at the source>

With the price of gold trending upward and the most recent U.S. Mint sales report showing a jump in sales for many gold collector coins, it seems like a good time to take a look at some of the Mint’s bullion sales figures.

American Eagle silver bullion coins have been selling in the ballpark of a million coins per week lately, which belies the fact that access to these coins has been limited for months under the Mint’s allocation program. Even with planchets in short supply and distribution restrictions in place, the Silver Eagle looks poised to leap past… Full article at the source>

By Doug Winter RareGoldCoins.com (Douglas Winter Numismatics)

1849-O $1.00 PCGS MS64 CAC

A “standalone” coin is one that, literally, stands alone; be it as a first-year issue, a one year type, or for other factors. In the United States gold coin market, there are a number of standalone issues from New Orleans and this article will identify and analyze them.

1. Gold Dollars

1849-O: This isn’t a true standalone issue, but the fact that it is the first New Orleans example of a brand-new denomination makes it desirable to multiple iterations of collector.

Though we usually stick to coins, medals, and paper money here at Coin Update, gold bars can be worth a second look as well when they carry an interesting design. The Perth Mint’s 1 oz. Oriana Gold Bar bears an image of Oriana, wife of Amadis the Gaul in the chivalric romances of 15th and 16th century Spain. The obverse design shows her cradling a cradling a bouquet of flowers, symbolizing her fidelity to Amadis.

The Monnaie de Paris has launched (13th October) two more coins in the ongoing series “Heroes of French Literature.” The latest author to be featured, Pierre Corneille, was a French playwright and poet from the 17th century.

Corneille started his career as a lawyer, but was always attracted to poetry and began writing in 1629. He tried his hand at writing comedy with Mélite, his first published attempt. The play was critically acclaimed and from then on Corneille was committed to the idea of a career in theater. In 1636, he wrote Le Cid, a tragicomedy inspired by the life of… Full article at the source>

What do Auction Prices Represent?

By: Doug Winter RareGoldCoins.com (Douglas Winter Numismatics)

For better or worse, the current market has come to heavily rely on auction prices to determine the value of a wide range of coins. I am often asked: do auction prices represent wholesale or retail? A one word answer: both.

The coin market is quite possibly the most transparent market there is in any hobby or collectible. PCGS, NGC, and Heritage provide comprehensive databases for nearly any major issue of United States coin, in a variety of grades. In theory, even an unknowledgeable collector now has access to records which only the most sophisticated dealers and collectors could access as… Full article at the source>

The U.S. Mint has raised its prices on gold coins now that the metal’s value has hovered above $1,150/oz. for four consecutive business days. This is the first time since late August that the price of gold has crossed that threshold.

Prices for the U.S. Mint’s gold coins are adjusted in accordance with the metal’s fluctuating market value. The Mint’s former prices for gold coins were held in effect as long as gold… Full article at the source>

1921 Peace dollar

When dies for any coin are designed, every effort is taken not to have deep parts of the die(s), which create the high portions on a finished coin, directly opposite each other. A classic example of this design flaw is the 1921 Peace silver dollar. Struck in high relief, the central portion of both the obverse and reverse dies of this coin were opposite each other. That is why you will virtually never find a fully struck coin of this date. There will always be a weakness in the central portion of Liberty’s hair on the obverse and… Full article at the source>

Lucky silver coin rich in Chinese symbolism

Much like dragons, bats have contrasting significance in Eastern and Western cultures. While people of European descent generally associate bats with evil, darkness and demonic creatures, the Chinese view them as auspicious.

For centuries, images of bats have been used to decorate Oriental art and daily wares, from furniture, paintings and embroideries, to vases and eating utensils. Bats are also depicted in architectural decorations on doors, windows and roofs.

An explanation lies in Chinese ‘homonyms’ – written or printed characters which differ in appearance and meaning but share the same pronunciation. In this case, the Chinese for bat (fu 蝠) sounds identical… Full article at the source>

It was during our first visit to Australia back in the 90s that we travelled to Cairns in Tropical North Queensland. The hotel location provided easy access to Mount Whitefield Regional Park and its walking tracks through the rainforest. As visitors from overseas we were particularly intrigued by a sign indicating the area was home to Southern Cassowaries, and eager to experience unique Aussie wildlife, set off in determined mood to see the mystery bird.

Sweating all day in the oppressive heat (later described as “unusually cool” for the time of year), we covered many kilometres in search of the apparently… Full article at the source>

The Treasury of the Government of the Falkland Islands has issued (18th September) a new collector coin commemorating the 275th anniversary of the composition of the tune “Rule, Britannia!” The staunchly patriotic British song was set to music by Thomas Arne in 1740, adapted from the poem, “Rule, Britannia,” by James Thomson.

James Thomson, a Scottish poet and playwright, was born in Ednam, Roxburghshire around September 11, 1700. In 1740, Thomson collaborated with his lifelong friend, dramatist David Mallet, on a masque entitled Alfred, which included this work.

Thomas Augustine Arne was born in London on March 12, 1710 into a family… Full article at the source>

The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) met in Washington, D.C. today to discuss design candidates for the 2017 America the Beautiful quarters.

The Ozark National Scenic Riverways in Missouri inspired several strong designs, but the committee was uniformly enthusiastic about the “turtle” submission, described more than once as a “home run.” Both the sky and the white space surrounding the body of the turtle will look great with a mirror-like Proof finish, and the use of perspective — moving from underwater to the far tree-crowded horizon — will make for a compelling reverse.

The list of Australia’s most hazardous inhabitants invariably includes the Redback spider.

A relative of the Black Widow, this angry arachnid was responsible for at least 14 human deaths before the availability of anti-venom.

The problem with Redbacks is that unlike deadly sharks, crocs and brown snakes, they prefer the comforts of urban living. The average suburban block provides plenty of nooks and crannies just perfect for a Redback residency.

Around sheds, under garden furniture, in the letterbox – you name it, a Redback is probably sizing up its potential new abode. So happy are they to dwell in dilapidated dunnies that Redbacks… Full article at the source>
