Gold Slips After Positive Week

June 22, 2015

     After a nice little run-up over $1,200 last week, Gold has retreated in morning trading, now back down to $1,185 an ounce. The current price of a Proof Gold Eagle in OGP is at $1,355 an ounce; some of the smaller denominations can carry premiums and are worth more depending on the dates. One ounce Proof Silver Eagles have remained fairly steady at the $48 level. With Silver at $16.15 an ounce, 90% bags are trading at $12,350 and Silver Dollars are level at $24,825 by the bag of VG’s.

     As reported last week, many of the more common coins are seeing a decline in collector demand. The chart below shows the FMV, for various denominations, two years ago versus the current FMV.

     While several of these dates are at or very close to the previous levels, the demand for them today is not nearly as strong. Dealers are reporting that they are offering these common coins at discounts to entice potential buyers. Some are stating that this is the time to stock up on these coins while prices are low.

     There is a significant amount of price changes in this week’s HD Wholesale Market Dealer Price Guide, and some of the adjustments showing strong demand for rarities.

     The 1794 Flowing Hair Half Dollar in MS64 is now up to $525,000 Market; there is only one coin certified in this grade and just seven total in the lower Mint State grades. This is a wonderful rarity in any Mint State grade.

     The 1837 Reeded Edge Half is higher in MS65, now at $11,650 Market. While this coin has very little bidding activity on the Teletypes, it is still in strong demand, especially when it has added eye appeal. And when it has the CAC sticker, the value increases substantially.
