Today (June 1) is the release date for the Mint’s annual American Eagle 1-ounce gold Uncirculated coin (17EH), which will be available from noon Eastern time. The Uncirculated and Proof AGEs are collector versions of the official U.S. Mint American Eagle gold bullion coins, differing with respect to finish and mintmark (which the bullion strike lacks). Each 22-karat (0.9127 fine) gold Uncirculated coin, denominated $50, is enclosed in a clear capsule housed in a blue, Mint-branded box, and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Collectors may get their kicks with Route 66 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>

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.

Some bullion shipments containing the high relief Gold Eagles went out to the Mint’s authorized purchasers, as confirmed Full article at the source>

Civil War Eagles: A Rarity Study with Condition Census Information

1861 $10.00 NGC MS62 CAC

This is the first of potentially many articles which focus on rarity and Condition Census information in the Liberty Head eagle series. The first sub-group I’m going to focus on is the 11 Civil War issues. 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>

The Pogue Quarter Eagles: A Post-Auction Analysis

May 23, 2015 in Antique Coins, Blogs, Coins, Collecting, Gold, Gold Eagles, History, Numismatica, Numismatics, USA Coins

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

As the early half dollars in the Pogue sale were hammered down—some at levels less than I expected—I turned to my client/friend seated beside me and told him “we might actually be able to buy some of the early quarter eagles; prices are really reasonable for the silver, and opening bids for the gold are lower than I would have thought.” As usually happens when I make such bold statements, I was so, so wrong.

The first of the Pogue sessions was held in New York on May 19th and I was excited to attend. The auction was conducted at Sotheby’s… Full article at the source>

The Gold and Silver Mine – Understanding mint-state, uncirculated and proof coins

February 25, 2014 in Bullion, Coins, Collecting, Education, Gold, Gold Eagles, Numismatica, Numismatics, Precious Metals, Proof Coins, Silver, Silver Coins, Silver Eagles, US Mint, USA Coins

By: Douglas Keefe. February 24th, 2014. (http://www.shorenewstoday.com/)

Last week’s article spoke about purchasing American Gold Eagles and Silver Eagles for investment purposes. These coins contain 1 full ounce of gold or silver and are sold at a slight premium over the spot metal’s price. Although they have a face value as a coin ($50 for the 1-ounce gold and $1 for the 1-ounce silver)’ they will never be spent as such because the metal value of each coin exceeds the face value. The term for this is “non-circulating legal tender.”

While discussing the investment benefits of these coins with a customer last week, he inquired about their condition, as he was aware how the condition affects the value of older coins. I explained how since these coins were never meant for use in commerce, they all are considered “uncirculated.” However, some people do submit these coins to the independent grading services with the hope that they will be graded MS70 (for mint state 70), the highest grade achievable.

November 1, 2013 By Michael Zielinski (http://news.coinupdate.com)

After two months of weakness, the American Gold Eagle bullion coins achieved stronger sales during the month of October. Silver Eagle bullion sales exceeded three million coins for the month, with the all time annual sales total quickly approaching.

For the month of October 2013, Gold Eagle bullion sales reached 48,500 troy ounces across all options. The most popular seller by both units and total weight was the one ounce size at 41,000 pieces. The latest monthly sales total breaks the streak of two uncharacteristically weak months. In August, sales were 11,500 ounces, followed by sales of 13,000 ounces in September. The total for August had marked a six year low for monthly sales.
