Lower Gold Attracting New Buyers

áááááWhile many of the Modern Gold Eagles are common and trade for their bullion value, several are very difficult to locate and carry strong premiums. Two of the nation's top market makers are continually seeking to purchase $25 Gold Eagles. Buyers want coins in the original government packaging; however, they will take certified coins as long as they are not unattractive. The dates include 1986 through 1992, 1995, 1996, 2001, and 2007. These coins carry higher premiums than the more common dates. For example, the 1989 has a Market price of $1,020 in MS69, the 1990 is $1,310, and the 1991 is $1,850. Common dates are trading at $610 wholesale.

áááááThe majority of adjustments in this week's Moderns Wholesale Market Dealer Price Guide are lower due to the drop in metals over the last few weeks. However, it does look like demand for the $5 Gold Commemoratives is steady with premiums a little stronger than the last report. The one-ounce Proof Gold Eagles in OGP have dropped a little to $1,995, while the Proof Silver Eagles are trading at $57 among dealers. The 2009 $20 Gold UHR is quite strong at present levels. The Prooflike and Early Release coins seem to be quite difficult to obtain in substantial quantities.

áááááThe market for most modern series from Lincoln Cents (1940 to date) through the Presidential Dollars appears to be very slow. The majority of offers we see are dealers trying to sell coins, although most of them are above current levels. Not too much discounting in most series are keeping Market prices steady. We did find some activity in the Washington Quarters from 1961 to 1976 for Deep Cameo Proof coins in PR69 and 70. The 1976 S Silver Quarter is now up to $1,250 in Deep Cameo PR70. The 1974 S Clad issue is an extremely rare coin in PR70 and moved to a higher $4,250.
