By: Laura Sperber Legend Numismatics Market Report

Legend Numismatics wishes to thank everyone for their concerns. We are all safe and sound now.

We were never in harms way, however we were at the location of a suspected second shooting in a garage. It was unnerving. Swat teams all around us.

Due to the airports closure, we will not post a Market Report until late Sat or sometime Sunday. The same for most NEWPS

STAY TUNED!

Early November report

November 12, 2016 in Coins, Collecting, Education, Gold, Gold Coins, Investing, Market Report, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, Opinion, Precious Metals, Rare Coins, USA Coins

By: Jose Legend Numismatics Market Report

Let the flow begin

We were relieved to see activity continue at a good pace this past week. Of course gold still clearly leads the way.

To answer so many questions we had last week: With Trump being elected the rare coin market has seen NO major changes, nor do we anticipate any in the short term. We have talked to several Wall Street big wigs and bankers. Their general feelings are money will be unlocked in businesses thus leading to profits, thus leading to more income and bounses for the masses. So eventually there will be more money looking Full article at the source>

End of August Report

By: Jose Legend Numismatics Market Report

HUH?

The activity we experienced this past week should have happened last week (post ANA Show). Guess the that many people were away or just not paying attention to the coin market. We had figured okay, the real doldrums had hit and we’re toast through the middle of September. NOT! Things could not have been more active.

We sold a five figure coin each day. We can only mention three of the five figure sales. We sold a 50C 1807 Draped Bust PCGS MS64 CAC, $20 1911 PCGS MS66 CAC and our gorgeous $20 1857 PCGS MS64+ CAC (this was really a… Full article at the source>

Precious Metals Update: Silver Eagle Allocation Exceeds 3.6 Million

July 11, 2016 in Bullion, Coins, Coins for sale, Collecting, Education, Gold, Gold Bullion, Gold Coins, Gold Eagles, Market Report, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, Precious Metals, Silver, Silver Coins, US Mint, USA Coins

By: Dan Holmes News.CoinUpdate.com (Coin Update News)

84913_BOTH

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>

PCGS, Legend Auctions, and the Big Easy

May 22, 2016 in Coin Shows, Coins, Collecting, Education, Investing, Market Report, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, USA Coins

By: Jose Legend Numismatics Market Report

Good Happenings in the Big Easy

New Orleans sure is a different kind of place. Every one was pretty happy to take a break from Las Vegas. In fact, this probably was one of the BEST attended Invitationals PCGS has held. We were surprised at how many local collectors there were who showed up and were buying coins! Ditto for dealers.

We certainly did not have to struggle to sell. We saw our “super secret” first shot buyer who was clearly looking to replenish his inventory. After him, we just sat at our table (vs walking the show) and sold soup to… Full article at the source>

By: Legend Numismatics Market Report

Demand is alive!

Last week we said we would not be posting a new Market Report. Things have changed!

We expected the past week to be slow with not much happening out side of selling a few NEWPS. Oh were we wrong!

From the time we put the first NEWPS up Saturday until now (as this is being written), our sales were far stronger then we expected. In fact we are on plane right now and sold two coins from 22000 feet above Missouri! Everything from soup to nuts was selling. Initially we were selling a ton of coins priced BELOW $5,000.00… Full article at the source>

By Jose Campos Legend Numismatics Market Report

THE SHOW

We never can say enough great comments about the PCGS Invitationals in Las Vegas. They are by far the most intimate, secure, and well pampered (the food spreads are delicious) shows to attend.

Even in this choppy market, the majority of the real “players” attended. It was extremely interesting to note that a bigger % then usual were there solely to buy. Much to our surprise. they were not just seeking gold like always. This time we has multiple requests for (gasp) Proof Type. We certainly have not heard that in many months.

For us, the show was an unexpected… Full article at the source>

The Week of Everything Pogue

February 15, 2016 in Antique Coins, Blogs, Coin Shows, Coins, Collecting, Collector Sets, Gold, Gold Coins, Grading, Investing, Market Report, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, Opinion, Rare Coins, USA Coins

By: Jose Campos Legend Numismatics Market Report

Legend lives for numismatic events like this. The Pogue Collection ranks among the greatest ever formed. This past week group III was sold at Sotheby’s in NYC.

Having had time to plan, we thought we were ready. However when the sale started, the action was far different then what we had anticipated. The results were much weaker then we had expected. The two highlight coins-the 1C 1793 Chain PCGS MS65RB and the $5 1815 PCGS MS65 BOTH sold for sums far less then expected and were UNDER $1 million each. In fact shockingly NO coin broke $1 million in last weeks… Full article at the source>

U.S. Rare Coin Auction Market Sets Record In 2014, Reports Professional Numismatists Guild

December 29, 2014 in Antique Coins, Auctions, Clubs and Associations, Coin Dealers, Coins, Coins for sale, Collecting, Gold, Gold Coins, Investing, Market Report, News, Numismatic Societies and Clubs, Numismatica, Numismatics, PNG Professional Numismatists Guild, Press Releases, Rare Coins, USA Coins

For immediate release
December 29, 2014

News media contact:

Donn Pearlman, for Professional Numismatists Guild Phone: (702) 868-5777

Summary:

The United States rare coin market was estimated at $5 billion in 2014, including a record of nearly $536 million of U.S. coins sold at major public auctions the past year, according to the Professional Numismatist Guild.

U.S. Rare Coin Auction Market Sets Record In 2014, Reports Professional Numismatists Guild

Sold for nearly $4.6 million, this 1787-dated gold Brasher Doubloon was one of a dozen United States rare coins that crossed the million dollar mark at auctions in 2014, another auctions record year for the estimated $5 billion U.S. rare coin market, according to the Professional Numismatists Guild.

(Photo credit: Heritage Auctions.)

(Temecula, California) — From a million dollars paid for an early American penny to $4.5 million paid for the first gold coin struck for the young United States, the market for high-quality, historic U.S. rare coins set another record for numismatic auctions in 2014. The overall U.S. rare coin market was estimated at about $5 billion, and a dozen coins sold for $1 million or more each at public auctions in 2014, according to a year-end tabulation by the Professional Numismatists Guild (www.PNGdealers.org).

The PNG is a nonprofit organization composed of many of the country’s top rare coin and paper money dealers.

“The prices realized for U.S. coins sold at major public auctions in 2014 totaled nearly $536 million, surpassing 2013’s record of nearly $393 million. Several important collections will be offered at auctions in 2015, and I anticipate we’ll again see record prices for so-called ‘trophy coins’ that combine historic significance, rarity and superb condition,” said PNG President Terry Hanlon.

“We estimate the overall coin market in the U.S. at about $5 billion in 2014. That includes auctions and private transactions made at coin shows, by mail order, online and at coin stores, but does not include numismatic bullion items or the modern coins sold directly by the United States Mint,” explained Hanlon.

“In the second half of the year, there was some softness in prices for relatively ‘common’ coins as gold and silver prices dropped, but the market for truly high-quality, historic rare U.S. coins continued to do quite well,” he said.

With the continuing trend of high prices for high-quality, historic rare coins, Hanlon cautioned: “We have an important saying in the numismatic marketplace. If you don’t know rare coins, you’d better know your rare coin dealer.”

These are the 12 U.S. rare coins purchased by winning bidders for $1 million or higher in 2014, and the auction companies that sold them:

1787 Brasher Doubloon with designer Ephraim Brasher’s “EB” punchmark on the eagle’s wing, graded by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as Mint State 63, $4,582,500 (Heritage Auctions).

1913 Liberty Head nickel, NGC Proof 64, $3,290,000 (Heritage Auctions).

1927 Denver Mint Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle ($20 denomination gold coin), NGC Mint State 66, $1,997,500 (Heritage Auctions).

1804 Draped Bust Dollar Class III type, NGC Proof 63, $1,880,000 (Stack’s Bowers Galleries).

1861 “Paquet Reverse” Double Eagle, graded by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) Mint State 61, $1,645,000 (Heritage Auctions).

1792 Pattern Cent (Judd-1, Pollock-1), NGC Mint State 63+, $1,410,000 (Heritage Auctions).

1776 silver Continental Dollar, “CURRENCY” and “EG FECIT” variety, NGC Mint State 63, $1,410,000 (Heritage Auctions).

1927-D Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle, PCGS Mint State 63, $1,292,500 (Heritage Auctions).

1797 Half Dollar (Overton-101a) PCGS Secure Mint State 65+ PCGS Secure, $1,292,500 (Heritage).

1792 Half Disme (an early spelling of “dime”) (Judd-7, Pollock-7 variety) PCGS Secure Specimen 67, $1,292,500 (Heritage Auctions).

1794 Half Cent PCGS Mint State 67 red and brown color, $1,150,000 (Ira and Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles).

1811 Half Cent, PCGS Mint State 66 red and brown, $1,121,250 (Ira and Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles).

Sold for nearly $4.6 million, this 1787-dated gold Brasher Doubloon was one of a dozen United States rare coins that crossed the million dollar mark at auctions in 2014, another auctions record year for the estimated $5 billion U.S. rare coin market, according to the Professional Numismatists Guild.

(Photo credit: Heritage Auctions.)

The auction companies responding to the PNG questionnaire about their 2014 auctions of United States rare coins were Bonham’s, David Lawrence Rare Coins, GreatCollections Coin Auctions, Heritage Auctions, Ira and Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles, Legend Rare Coin Auctions, Scotsman Coin and Jewelry, and Stack’s Bowers Galleries.

All prices include the buyer’s premium, if any, to reflect the actual total prices paid by the winning bidders. The PNG survey did not include 2014 auctions of paper money or coins produced by other countries (“world coins”), two areas of the numismatic marketplace that also experienced record prices for many items.

Founded in 1955, the Professional Numismatists Guild is composed of many of the country’s top rare coin and paper money dealers. PNG member-dealers must adhere to a strict code of ethics in the buying and selling of numismatic merchandise. A complete listing of PNG member-dealers is available online at www.PNGdealers.org.

For a copy of “The Pleasure of Numismatics,” an informative, ten-page illustrated educational booklet about collecting rare coins, paper money, tokens and medals, send $1 to: Professional Numismatists Guild, 28441 Rancho California Road, Suite 106, Temecula, California 92590.

U.S. Rare Coin Market Roared in 2013, Reports Professional Numismatists Guild

December 31, 2013 in Antique Coins, Auctions, Clubs and Associations, Coins, Collecting, Gold Coins, Market Report, News, Numismatic Societies and Clubs, Numismatica, Numismatics, Press Releases, Rare Coins, Silver Coins, World Coins

December 30, 2013 (http://www.businesswire.com/)

TEMECULA, Calif.–()–From a multi-million dollar nickel to a $10 million silver dollar, the market for high-quality, historic United States rare coins established unprecedented records in 2013 for the number of coins that sold for $1 million or more and the highest price paid for any rare coin, according to a year-end tabulation by the Professional Numismatists Guild (http://www.PNGdealers.org). The PNG is a nonprofit organization composed of many of the country’s top rare coin and paper money dealers.

“We estimate the overall coin market in the U.S. at about $5 billion in 2013. That includes auctions and private transactions made at coin shows, by mail order, online and at coin stores, but does not include numismatic bullion items or the modern coins sold directly by the United States Mint,” said Terry Hanlon, PNG President.

Why did the market for high-quality, historic rare U.S. coins do so well in 2013?

“Over the course of this year we continued to see the precious metals market decline and the stock market rise. The U.S. and other world economies, specifically the Eurozone, are seeing an economic recovery, however temporary it may be. A growing interest in rare coins is typical in this type of environment. The same for fine art which is booming right now. Rare coins and fine art seem to coincide with one another in this economic environment,” said Hanlon.

“The prices realized for U.S. coins at public auctions this past year totaled nearly $393 million, the highest aggregate total anyone can recall”

“Smart investors and collectors see a good buying opportunity with some of their profits taken from the increase in stocks being reinvested in rare coins. There’s also the continuing interest in hard assets with the confidence that rare coin values will grow with the success of the economic conditions, even as the precious metals themselves may be declining,” he explained.

“There was incredible competition for so-called ‘trophy coins’ with 11 U.S. coins selling at auctions for more than $1 million each in 2013. One historically significant coin, believed by many to be the first silver dollar struck by the United States Mint in 1794, sold for $10 million. That’s the highest confirmed price ever paid for any rare coin,” stated Hanlon.

A 12th U.S. coin also crossed the seven-figure mark in a private transaction conducted by a PNG member-dealer.

The most valuable U.S. coins purchased by winning bidders at auctions in 2013 were:

1794 Flowing Hair silver dollar, $10,016,875 (Stack’s Bowers Galleries)

1804 Type I silver dollar, $3,877,500 (Heritage Auctions)

1913 Liberty Head nickel, $3,172,500 ((Heritage Auctions)

1880 Coiled Hair gold $4 denomination Stella, $2,574,000 (Bonhams)

1796 silver quarter-dollar, $1,527,500 ((Heritage Auctions)

1792 silver half disme (early spelling of dime) $1,410,000 ((Heritage Auctions)

1796 silver dollar, $1,175,000 ((Heritage Auctions)

1783 Nova Constellatio Quint Type II, $1,175,000 ((Heritage Auctions)

1852 Augustus Humbert $10 gold coin, $1,057,500 ((Heritage Auctions)

1792 half disme, $1,145,625 ((Stack’s Bowers Galleries)

1879 Coiled Hair gold $4 Stella, $1,041,300 (Bonhams)

The 12th U.S. rare coin that changed hands for more than a million dollars in 2013 was an 1894 San Francisco Mint dime that sold for over $2 million in a private sale conducted by David Lawrence Rare Coins.

US Mint Sales Report: Helen Taft Gold Coins Debut, Gold Buffaloes Sell Out

December 13, 2013 in Coins, Collecting, Commemorative, Gold, Gold Buffalo, Gold Coins, Gold Eagles, Market Report, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, Precious Metals, Proof Coins, Quarters, Silver, Silver Coins, Silver Eagles, US Mint, USA Coins

December 10, 2013 By  (http://news.coinupdate.com)

The latest weekly United States Mint numismatic product sales report includes the opening figures for the 2013 Helen Taft First Spouse Gold Coin. Also, the spate of product sell outs continues with the 2013 Proof Gold Buffalo no longer available.

The Helen Taft Gold Coins went on sale at the US Mint on December 2, 2013, representing the third release of the series in less than three weeks. The proof version was priced at $815 per coin, while the uncirculated version was $795 per coin. This was one increment lower than the prior two releases. The maximum mintage was 10,000 pieces across both versions.

Through the reporting date of December 8, sales have reached 1,467 proofs and 982 uncirculated coins. This makes for a combined total of 2,449 pieces, accounting for 24.49% of the maximum mintage. This was a stronger start compared to the prior two releases, but this may have been due to a longer availability period before the first reported sales.
