america the cluttered

The United States Mint overwhelmingly does a splendid job for what it is supposed to do: provide billions of new coins each year for circulation as requested by the Federal Reserve Bank system and produce high-quality coins and medals for collectors. Unfortunately, there often have been too many cooks in the Congressional kitchen ordering the Mint to create a numismatic buffet of too many fund-raising commemorative coins for various causes and themes. Some newcomers to the hobby may not realize there was a time during the late 1950s to early 1970s when collectors were pleading with legislators to authorize commemoratives and let the Mint introduce new designs on circulating coins. The last commemoratives had been issued in 1954, and designs of the Lincoln cent, Jefferson nickel, Roosevelt dime and Washington quarter…

gold springs into profit mode

Gold closed 2018 at its highest price since June 15th, moving in the opposite direction of stocks, which fell the most of any December since 1931. During the fourth quarter, the S&P 500 lost 14% while gold gained 8%. During the month of December, gold rose $65 an ounce (+5.4%) while the S&P 500 fell 9.2%. As of September 30, 2018, the S&P 500 was up 9% for the year, while gold was down 8.4%. Their roles later reversed, however, with gold gaining 8.1% versus declines in stocks ranging from -11.8% (Dow Jones) to -17.5% (NASDAQ). The brightest side of gold’s performance story in 2018 is in terms of other currencies. Most foreign stock markets have fallen further than the U.S. stock market, and gold is up in most foreign currencies. The…

gotta have these coins

Have you ever walked into a coin shop or clicked on a coin dealer website and just felt like you had to buy a certain coin right then and there? It seems most coin collectors at one time or another feel an overwhelming desire to purchase this or that piece at a certain time, either because the price was right or the item had languished unfulfilled on a want list for months, even years, and then – the opportunity to purchase the coin finally presented itself. While we all have certain coins itching at us, there are several pieces that for one reason or another you really must buy now. In some cases, the coins profiled in this article have come down in price after falling from lofty highs; those pieces…

‘gotta have it’ action plan

Some things, like the seasons, never change. I don’t need a crystal ball to predict that spring will follow winter this year on March 20, and that it will come in like a lion. One of the great underlying propellants that keeps coin collectors going as spring approaches has always been the “gotta have it” mentality of instant gratification: “I’m down in the dumps with the winter blues – so let me rush out and buy something new for my collection that’s diverting and fascinating to take my mind off tax season, snow, and freezing rain!” This is a simple and satisfying action plan to add renewed cheer to the winter months and to re-ignite that old collecting flame that dies down from time to time, even in the most dedicated…

guide to buying great coins for melt value

In these uncertain times, you would be well served to protect yourself against a downturn in the economy or more personal misfortune that could destroy savings. Throughout history, the favored method of protection has been to lay aside items of value, ranging from diamonds to coins containing precious metal, namely gold and silver. Bars of five or 10 ounces have also been used in precious metals portfolios. My advice relating to the gold and silver coins I analyze here for insurance against calamity does not focus on this $100,000 rarity or that million dollar prized proof coin. I will leave those sophisticated nuanced rarities for another time and another place. This article focuses on great mainstream coins whose values are derived primarily from the metals they are made from, and these…
