Student loans, auto loans, home mortgages, and similar expenditures are major financial milestones—most people encounter one or more of them at some point in life. If you don’t have direct experience in these areas, you almost certainly know someone who does, and they can point you in the right direction.

Investing in coins or precious metals, on the other hand, is very different. If you aren’t already in the know, chances are your friends and relatives aren’t, either. Lack of information leaves people especially vulnerable to fraud, whether it’s malicious (as with counterfeit coins) or simply ignorant (overcharging for legitimate items… Full article at the source>

On May 26, as collectors waited to find out when the 2016-W Centennial Gold Standing Liberty Quarter and other highly-anticipated issues will launch this year, the Mint surprised everyone by announcing that the 2016-W $100 American Platinum Eagle Proof coin would be released on June 30.

Last year’s release in this popular series was not available until last December due to problems sourcing sufficient supplies of platinum planchets. But this year the Mint reported having fewer problems in that regard, though it is still not clear if there will be no one-ounce bullion coin for the second year in a row. Two-Year… Full article at the source>

Last week, the Mint made a surprise announcement the day before Thanksgiving: the 2015 American Eagle One Ounce Platinum Proof Coin would be released days later, despite the Mint’s reported problems procuring the platinum planchets necessary to move forward with the issue. In part because of this planchet shortage, the coin was given the low mintage limit of 4,000 pieces; when it was released today at noon, it wasn’t long before collectors exhausted the available inventory.

The 2015 Platinum Proof Coin went into “Currently Unavailable” status on the Mint’s Web site less than 10 minutes after it… Full article at the source>

This is something that has only happened a few times in recent history, once when gold crashed in 2008… Full article at the source>
