Advancing Metals Creating Widespread Sales

October 22, 2018

     Gold has been on a solid run, holding above the $1,220 mark for the last 10 days. Dealers on the teletypes have been very active, buying and selling bullion related coins as collector and investor demand is on the rise. In morning trading Gold is currently at $1,222 and Silver is at $14.55. One ounce Proof Gold Eagles in the OGP are trading at $1,260 and Proof Silver Eagles are $36 each. Silver bags are wholesaling at $10,525 and circulated Silver Dollars are $20,650 for a VG+ bag of one thousand coins.

     Stack’s Bowers Galleries is hosting the official auction for this week’s Whitman Baltimore Expo. One of the highlights of this sale is the 1891 $20 Gold in NGC PR66+ Ultra Cameo; quite rare in this grade but there are two certified higher by NGC in PR67. The last auction recorded for this date and grade is a 2004 Heritage sale when it brought $149,500.

     Another high-end rarity that will certainly interest Registry collectors is the 1907 S $10 Gold in PCGS MS66+ with the CAC sticker. This is the highest certified coin of this date that has the CAC approval, and the current CAC value is listed at $44,600. However, when you combine the + rating with CAC approval, bidders will predictably pay stronger premiums. Below are some of the other potential highlights from the Baltimore Stack’s Bowers Sale.
