Low Pop MS70 Gold Eagles Topping Charts

November 23, 2015

     Lower metal prices seem to be attracting more sales for the U.S. Mint. The fact that many common coins have drifted lower in the past six months has not yet enticed buyers to earlier collector coins. So for now, it looks like the modern bullion coins are leading this market. Further, we are finding many higher prices for the ultimate 70 grade for Gold and Silver Eagles with low populations. This is not an area that most dealers enjoy participating in, but if this is what today’s buyers want, that is what the dealers will offer. Below is a list of some of the late date rarities in Gold Eagles that have been climbing in value since the first of the year.
