These SS Central America coins will be publicly displayed for the first time during the American Numismatic Association 2018 Philadelphia World’s Fair of Money, August 14-18.

     Along with this set, the California Gold Marketing Group will exhibit other gold ingots and Fractional and Territorial coins recovered from the 2014 expedition.

     The metals remain weak as Gold drifts toward $1,200 an ounce. With any drop in price an opportunity is created to purchase Gold and Silver at lower levels, which means buyers are able to acquire more of the metals for less money. Currently, Gold is $1,209 and Silver is $15.30. Proof one ounce Gold Eagles in the OGP are trading at $1,235 and Proof Silver Eagles are $34.
