The government and Treasury of the Falkland Islands have issued (11th July) a new crown coin which remembers the 35th anniversary of the day the islands were officially and wholly liberated from invading forces of the Argentinian Army. The long-running dispute between Britain and Argentina over the ownership of the Falkland Islands was brought to a head on the 19th March 1982, when 50 Argentinians landed on South Georgia Island and hoisted their flag.

The U.S. Mint’s first-week sales totals for the 2016 Nancy Reagan First Spouse Gold Coins show that interest in the issues has been higher than we’ve seen for most other recent releases in this series.

It’s an interesting time to pay attention to sales of 2014 and 2015 Silver Eagles.

Prior to today’s slight correction, silver prices dropped five days in a row this week, and bullion coins are being swallowed up as fast as the U.S. Mint can produce them. The Proof and Uncirculated versions of the coin are routinely among the top-selling items at the U.S. Mint. The American Eagle is the best-selling silver coin in the world, yet it maintains an allure that exceeds the value of its precious-metal content ($14.44 per ounce as of this writing).
