Cent Collectors Driving Market Prices

January 19, 2015

     We have updated more prices from the results of the Heritage Auction at FUN and from bourse floor trading at the show. This week we have recorded a variety of changes for the LD Wholesale Market Dealer Price Guide that includes many advances. There are several increases in Half Cents and Large Cents from sales of coins that do not trade very often. The 1842 Half Cent in PR64 Brown advanced to $12,500 Market and the 1848 in PR63 moved to a higher $5,125. In Large Cents the 1798 2nd Hair Style increased in both MS63 and MS64 to $13,500 and $15,350, respectively. The 1826 Large Cent in MS66 Brown jumped to $10,750 Market. Check the Half Cent and Large Cent charts for many other changes to Market prices this week.

     The Two-Cent Proof chart contains several changes to Market prices this week and not all are upward. However, the 1864 Small Motto in PR66 Red is up to $89,500, along with the 1871 PR66 Red at $6,750. Below is a list of other important coins in the LD Price Guide with increases this week.

     After underachieving for the last several months, the metals have finally begun to move higher, much higher. Gold is approaching the September high of $1,286.50 when Silver was $19.49 and Platinum was $1,423. It is interesting that Platinum was $136.50 higher than Gold in September and today it is $11 less per ounce. There are many analysts that always felt Platinum should be $100 over the value of Gold, but markets change. Gold gained over $50 in the last week and is currently at $1,376.50; Silver is $17.70 and Platinum is $1,263.

     With the metals heating up, next week is sure to see many increases in the U.S. Gold charts. The Long Beach Expo will begin on January 29th with dealers beginning to arrive a few days early to get a jump on wholesale business.
