Collectors may get their kicks with Route 66 coins

March 9, 2017 in Coins, Collecting, Commemorative, Education, Gold, Gold Coins, Gold Eagles, Investing, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, Opinion, Palladium, Palladium Coins, Precious Metals, Silver, Silver Coins, Silver Eagles, US Mint, USA Coins

There is little doubt that modern U.S. numismatics needs a jolt. While millions of collectors still look forward to coins like each year’s American Silver and Gold Eagles and the forthcoming 2017 American Palladium Eagle, this segment of the hobby does not seem to attract as much interest as it used to. And nowhere is that more the case than with commemorative coin programs, whose sales have continued to lag in recent years mostly because collectors are not especially interested in either the subjects or the designs, with certain exceptions.

But there now is a possible commemorative coin program whose foundation… Full article at the source>

gold coins

For its short length in history, the United States has an extensive list of currency. Many of which are thought to be lost forever after being ordered to be destroyed due to a depression or plans of being replaced with an entirely new design. Their scarcity sparked beliefs of fable until collectors began coming forward with authentic coins verifying their place in history.

The U.S. Mint’s authorized purchasers (AP’s) bought 945,000 2016 American Eagle silver bullion coins last week, well up from 170,000 pieces sold during the previous period.

One-ounce Silver Eagles have sold 30,155,500 pieces so far this year. As we are currently 72% of the way through 2016 and sales for these issues have reached only 64% of last year’s total of 47 million ounces, ASE sales remain unlikely to reach last year’s total.

Gold’s value decreased by $10.80 an ounce during the past week. Gold is now appraised at $1,313.80 according to the London Bullion Market Association. The value… Full article at the source>

Gold, silver, and platinum have all gained in value during the past week, making it an apt time to look at recent trends in U.S. Mint bullion sales. Platinum in particular has been quite visible of late, with prices rising just as the Mint begins issuing its 2016 American Eagle one-ounce platinum bullion coins.

As noted on Monday, the Mint began accepting orders for bullion Platinum Eagles on July 25. Authorized purchasers (AP’s) scooped up an impressive 17,100 pieces in one day, giving this year’s one-ounce Platinum Eagles their fifth-highest mintage ever.

Precious Metals Update: Silver Eagle Allocation Exceeds 3.6 Million

The U.S. Mint’s authorized purchasers (AP’s) bought 250,000 of last week‘s 2,839,500-ounce allocation of 2016 American Eagle silver bullion coins, leaving 2,589,500 unsold. This is the most unsold Silver Eagles we’ve seen so far this year, continuing a recent trend that has seen the Mint’s inventory growing with the help of consistent production and softer demand.

Sales for the issues dropped sharply, due in part to the observance of the Fourth of July holiday. AP’s bought 73% fewer Silver Eagles during this period than the 938,000 ounces reported last week. The unsold pieces have been added to this week’s… Full article at the source>

What Are the Three Rarest Carson City Half Eagles?

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

Of the three denominations of gold coins struck at the Carson City mint, perhaps the most popular to collect by date are the half eagles. Of the 19 issues produced between 1870 and 1893, all are obtainable in reasonably high grades. But some of these are rarer than most collectors realize, and the Big Three are extremely challenging to obtain in higher grades. What are the three rarest Carson City half eagles and how do they compare in overall and high grade rarity?… Full article at the source>

Use Caution To Avoid Gold And Silver Counterfeits, Advises Professional Numismatists Guild.

Use Caution To Avoid Gold And Silver Counterfeits, Advises Professional Numismatists Guild.

(Temecula, California) – Beware of counterfeit vintage rare coins and fake modern gold and silver bullion items now being offered in the marketplace.  Purchase only from reputable dealers, cautions the Professional Numismatists Guild (www.PNGdealers.org).

The PNG is a nonprofit organization composed of many of the country’s top numismatic experts.

“It is clear there is an increase in the types of fakes sold by unscrupulous dealers.  These sales of counterfeit coins are potentially a multi-million dollar problem for the public.  There’s an old saying that can help buyers avoid problems: If you don’t know coins, you better know your dealer,” stated Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG) President Dana Samuelson.

“We conducted an informal inquiry of PNG members and PNG Accredited Precious Metals Dealers (APMD) about what they’re encountering now in the marketplace.  They have seen everything from counterfeits of vintage rare coins to modern precious metal items.  These include fakes of popular century-old U.S. Morgan and Peace design silver dollars to current gold and silver American Eagles, gold U.S. Buffalo coins, silver and gold Chinese Pandas, and Canadian silver and gold Maple Leaf coins.  We’re also seeing spurious gold and silver ingots,” said Samuelson.

“Professional dealers who look at classic U.S. coins and bullion items all day long are usually not fooled by these spurious items, but to the untrained eye they often look like the real thing,” he explained.

“Many of the fakes apparently are originating in China and then offered online by various sellers.  It is imperative that collectors, investors and the general public deal only with reputable, knowledgeable experts who offer a guarantee of authenticity,” emphasized Samuelson.

Two PNG members who recently were in Asia say they saw counterfeits of early 19th century Draped Bust, mid 19th century Seated Liberty and late 19th and early 20th century Morgan and Peace silver dollars being sold in flea markets in China and Hong Kong for $1 to $3 each.

Unsuspecting buyers have submitted counterfeit modern bullion coins to Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (www.NGCcoin.com) for authentication and grading. NGC, the official grading service of PNG, earlier reported submissions of counterfeit 2012-dated gold American Eagle $50 denomination coins.

Those particular counterfeits exhibit poorly defined details around Liberty’s face and hair, different fonts for lettering and the date compared to genuine coins and the color is different because the fakes are not composed of gold, according to Max Spiegel, a Vice President of Certified Collectibles Group, NGC’s parent company.

PNG and PNG Accredited Precious Metals Dealers must adhere to a strict Code of Ethics in the buying and selling of numismatic merchandise including bullion coins, precious metal rounds and ingots, and they offer a guarantee of authenticity for the numismatic items they sell.

The U.S. Mint has continued its pattern of releasing one million American Eagle one-ounce silver bullion coins per week by issuing a new allocation today. Last week’s inventory had been purchased by the Mint’s authorized buyers as of Thursday, bringing 2016’s overall total to 14 million ounces sold.

Even with the ongoing rationing of silver bullion, the Mint is on pace to have its biggest sales year ever for the commodity, and has already exceeded 29.7% of last year’s record-breaking total of 47 million ounces of Silver Eagles sold.

Up to 63,000 Gold Eagles Accidentally Struck in High Relief

The U.S. Mint has conceded that as many as 63,000 one-ounce American Eagle gold bullion coins were accidentally struck with high relief obverses, according to Coin World. The Mint is investigating the circumstances that led to the abnormality, which causes the coins to scrape against one another when stacked, as the rims were struck to the appropriate dimensions.

Coin World learned of the development through an anonymous tip, and Tom Jurkowsky, director of the Mint’s Office of Corporate Communications, subsequently disclosed the 63,000-coin estimate.

This is the first of potentially many articles which focus on rarity and Condition Census information in the Liberty Head eagle series.

These coins are, with one exception, rare in all grades and a number of them are either unknown or excessively rare in Uncirculated.

The 1861 is by far the most common Civil War eagle and it is among the more plentiful No Motto issues of this denomination. The mintage of 113,164 is many times more than all the other Civil War… Full article at the source>

Why Does the 1861-C Half Eagle Get No Love?

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

When I first became interested in Southern branch mint gold coinage, the 1861-C and 1861-D half eagles were both highly regarded issues. The latter was always worth more than the former, but both were sought-after and regarded as key issues within their respective sets.

Fast forward 30 years and the scenario has changed. The 1861-D half eagle is now a revered multiple level of demand issue, sought after by Civil War specialists, Dahlonega collectors, and wealthy individuals who fancy cool coins with great back stories. The 1861-C half eagle has been relegated to also-ran status; appreciated by few collectors outside of… Full article at the source>

Increase In Gold Price May Increase
Gold Scams, Cautions Michael Fuljenz

 

 Summary:

There are five things you must know about buying and selling gold to avoid paying too much or receiving too little, advises Universal Coin & Bullion President Michael Fuljenz, a member of the Professional Numismatists Guild’s Accredited Precious Metals Dealer program.

 (Beaumont, Texas) — The recent increase in the price of gold may increase the chances of unwary buyers and sellers becoming victims of dishonest dealers, cautioned Michael Fuljenz, an award-winning precious metals writer and President of Universal Coin & Bullion, Ltd. (www.UniversalCoin.com) in Beaumont, Texas.

“It happens virtually every time there’s a run up in gold and silver prices.  Scam artists take advantage of investors and consumers who have not done their homework,” warned Fuljenz.

“Last year when prices dropped, there was still so much public demand that the United States Mint ran out of some bullion coins inventory several times.  I anticipate demand will rise even higher from 2015’s impressive levels.  Investors should know how to get more value when buying and more money when selling,” Fuljenz stated.

He said there are five danger points to avoid:

  • Paying far too much when you purchase new, popular gold bullion items, such as American Eagle and Canadian Maple Leaf coins. Depending on the quantity of your purchase, Fuljenz advised you should only pay between 4.5 and 5.5 percent over the intrinsic (“melt”) value of a typical, one-ounce gold bullion coin.  Premiums above melt value may reach as high as 14 percent when purchasing smaller-size bullion coins that contain only one-tenth of an ounce of gold.
  • Receiving far too little when you sell.  Depending on the quantity and quality of coins you are selling, you should receive as least melt value for popular, one-ounce gold bullion coins and usually significantly over intrinsic value for rare coins.  Several years ago, Fuljenz assisted news media in five states with investigations of so-called ‘hotel buyers’ who often paid just pennies on the dollar for some precious metals items.  In one case, a high-profile buyer offered only $60 for a gold coin with a market value of $10,000 that Fuljenz loaned to investigative reporters who worked on the stories.
  • Not receiving what you paid for.  Fuljenz pointed out there have been recent news media stories in Orange County California and Austin, Texas about precious metals dealers failing to deliver the gold bullion coins investors ordered in good faith.
  • Not receiving payment for precious metals items you shipped to a buyer.  “Before you buy or sell with a dealer, check to see the dealers’ credentials.  Are they accredited by the Better Business Bureau?  Are they truly experts, such as being a member of the Professional Numismatists Guild’s Accredited Precious Metals Dealer (APMD) program,” advised Fuljenz.
  • Beware of counterfeit American Eagle gold and silver coins and fake bullion ingots (bars).  “Even though hobby protection laws have been strengthened and counterfeit detection efforts in the precious metals and rare coin profession have increased, it pays to make sure your specific dealer is an expert in counterfeit detection,” said Fuljenz.

Earlier this fall I wrote the first part of this article, which discussed the No Motto eagles from the New Orleans mint. (You can find the full article here.) This second part focuses on the With Motto eagles from the Crescent City.

Production of eagles at the New Orleans mint ended in 1860 and did not resume until the mint was reopened in 1879. During this year, only three denominations were produced: silver dollars, eagles and double eagles.

The 16 issues which form this set are all members of the With Motto type which lasted on this design from 1866 through… 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>
