ANA Money Show Next Major

     Bullion remains the most active area for dealers on the teletype networks. Modern Gold, Silver and Platinum coins are keeping dealers busy trying to balance their needs on a daily basis. Throw in silver bags, silver dollars, and foreign gold and this makes up about 70% of the trading among dealers these days. With the ANA Money Show fast approaching, the metals will be closely watched for the next couple of weeks. The ANA is being held in Fort Worth, March 25-28, and Heritage Auction Galleries will host the official ANA Auction.

     In this week's Moderns Wholesale Market Dealer Price Guide, we found very few changes for most of the series from Modern Lincoln Cents through the Presidential Dollars. When most of these common coins in common grades trade, it is at the present levels. However, we have been monitoring higher Market prices for some of the rarer Modern $5 Gold Commemoratives. The 1995 W Olympics Torch Runner, Stadium, 1996 W Olympics Flag Bearer, and Cauldron all have increased in Market price for the MS69 and MS70 grades. These are not easily found in the marketplace. There are at least two market makers looking for these coins.

     Buffalo Gold, especially the 2008 issues, is extremely active. Several competitive dealers around the country need all denominations in the original government packaging or grades of 68 to 70. The Market price has increased for all 2008 W coins in MS and Proof 69 and 70 this week. The Market for the $50 coin in Ultra Cameo PR70 is up to $3,450. The smaller denominations are infrequently offered for sale on the teletypes.
