Your state statute 2013 80G which became effective July

We are sorry but the costs of complying with this regulation

August Coin Market Commentary

The recent Baltimore show was very successful with what seemed like better than normal attendance for a summer event, Saturday attendance by the general public was particularly brisk and their wants were across the numismatic spectrum. The summer FUN Show is in progress as I write this and initial reports are good. The FUN Show should get an obvious boost from precious metals which are trading at their highest levels of the year. There is plenty of geopolitical tension and financial news supporting these safe haven investments. A recent report in the Wall Street Journal indicated that Asiaís Central Banks now have $7.47 trillion in foreign currency reserves. That is a mind boggling number. Imagine if they put 1% into gold reserves. That would be 1,731 tonnes or 55,663,189 ounces or imagine if it were in silver at a ratio of 63:1. The coin market is quite healthy with super rarities leading the way north. Silver dollars of all types are in good demand. Barber half dollars have just reached new higher levels in F12 after gaining nicely in VF20 and all lower mint state grades earlier this year. Early copper issues remain strong with pre 1800 issues increasing dramatically in recent weeks and especially in higher grades. Flying Eagle and Indian cents are firm with noticeable increases in higher grade issues from 1857 to 1872. Lincoln cents are somewhat quiet while working off some of the excess gains from the 100th anniversary promotions. Two cent and Three cent issues are steady with many willing to pay strongly for the illusive scarce dates that are attractive for the grade. Liberty Nickels are firm with some continued price gains and Buffalo nickels remain steady but with strong demand for nice mint state issues. Barber coinage in general is firm and scarce dates are very popular. Washington Quarters seem to have some renewed interest after being overly promoted on the back of the Statehood Quarter program. Mercury Dimes and Walking Liberty Half Dollars remain very popular as well. Early dates in both series are in especially strong demand above VF20. The 1921 issues of both series are continually asked for at shows and are on most dealers and collectors wantlists. The only coin that is weak in either series is the 1938-D Walker in G4 to VF30 as these were over-promoted several years ago, although prices have come down to more reasonable level and are nearing equilibrium. Silver, Gold and Platinum Eagles continue to gain in popularity as they easily collected and available in high grades. Although mintages are generally ample their popularity has created several illusive sleepers with each series. The fractional gold issues contain the most obvious of these. USA Gold issues are showing some increased premiums on generic issues and because of recent market stability buy/sell spreads have narrowed.

Weekly Coin Market Commentary

More manipulation or? Last week precious metals were looking pretty good although all the positive hype in the media was starting to nag something in my brain. I should have listened to that nagging feeling because I held a lot of gold and silver over the weekend and to keep liquid sold some much lower on Tuesday. On Monday when European markets opened a large sell order of 6,000 contracts hit the market (600,000 ounces) that created an obvious downdraft and was leading to a weak NY opening. When the NY market opened another 14,000 contracts were dumped bringing the market 2% lower. Today as I write this the market has stabilized and regained half a percent. Obviously silver and platinum followed but they have done slightly better than gold with silver at 62.63:1 and platinum at 1.14:1 versus gold. US gold type coins are continuing to be active with the usual decline following bullion on the large size common issues. We do note increased demand (prices) in circulated dollar issues, Liberty head Half and quarter Eagles as well as Indian head Eagles. Premiums remain good on all Indian Head gold issues. A truly rare gold type item the type 2 Liberty gold double eagle is currently in strong demand in MS64. In the area of non-gold US type coins the promoters are now after G4 to VG8 common date half dimes. Interestingly I have supplied these by the 100ís in the past and I always notice that while price guides list about 25 or so common dates you usually always see mostly the same dozen or so. The others really are not that common. They donít go up in price because there are actually very few collectors of the series by date. Twenty cent pieces have gained in MS63 and MS64 again. These type coins are very fickle and market sensitive often going up for a month or two and then declining for a similar period as interest wanes.
