Downward Drift Continues for Generic Gold

December 11, 2017

     Heritage Auctions held their annual December Dallas Signature Sale last week and, while it may not have had the depth of most of their sales, results showed that there is still plenty of buying power in the market. One of the highlights was the 1866 S $20 Gold No Motto in NGC AU58; rarely seen in Mint State, this near miss coin brought $72,000, selling at a discount of our previous Market price. The highest known grade is an NGC MS62. Another rarity from the Twenty Dollar Gold series, the 1879 O in PCGS AU53 brought $66,000. Again this is a date where very few Mint State coins exist....

Late Date Walkers Falling on Hard Times

     The 1944 S Walker in MS66 had a population of only 255 PCGS coins in 2004. Today the PCGS pop is a hefty 724 (an increase of over 280%) with an additional 210 NGC coins; and prices have suffered. Interestingly enough, there were only five PCGS coins certified in MS67 in 2004 and today there are still only eight in PCGS. That is most likely why the MS67 has run up to $17,550 since its 2010 FMV of $13,000. The majority of the dates from 1934 through 1947 in MS66 have increased in population much like the 1941 S and 1944 S.
