The Summer FUN Begins this Week

     Dealers are headed to Orlando, Florida this week for the annual Summer FUN Show. Many dealers typically combine vacations with this popular event to take advantage of the weather and family theme parks. The fact that metals are trying to rally from their recent lows and most dealers have significant needs for their customers should make this a worthwhile show.

     Dealers and collectors will be continuing their pursuit of better date collector coins in the $5,000 to $15,000 range. This includes most coins prior to 1900 that have a solid history of value and low populations for the specific grade. Better date U.S. gold, especially $20 Liberties, will be easy sellers as long as they are original and properly graded.

     Heritage Galleries will host the Official FUN Signature Auction, July 11-14. One of the many highlights of this sale could well be the 1861 O $20 Liberty in PCGS AU55; there are a total of just 25 certified by PCGS and NGC in this grade with only 19 grading higher. There is only one coin in MS61 and it is the highest graded to date.

     Another scarce New Orleans Mint Twenty going on the block is the 1850 O in NGC MS60. It is the only one certified in this grade and there are only four certified higher with the MS62 the single highest grade. The MS60 has a current Market price of $47,500. Listed below are a few other potential highlights from this upcoming Heritage Sale.

     Prices in the U.S. Gold charts have dropped for common dates in this week’s HD Wholesale Market Dealer Price Guide. This is a result of too many generic coins on the market and the price of bullion falling since the last update. For example, the $20 Liberty in MS64 is down to $1,770 Market in MS64 while the $20 Saint is $1,550 in the same grade.

     However, there are still numerous increases throughout the charts for better date U.S. Gold coins. The 1808 $2 ½ Gold is higher in most grades with the MS63 now at $375,000 Market. There are only five coins certified in this grade with just two higher. Also higher this week is the 1797 $10 Gold in AU55; now at $27,250 Market.
