United States Rare Coin Market

Metals Fall

     Registry Set collectors continue to show strong interest in the highest grades for the series. Many increases are included in this week’s Modern Wholesale Dealer Price Guide. Especially active are the Kennedy Half Dollars in 1965 to 1967 SMS specimens. Cameo and Deep Cameo high grades are climbing as demand increases for a limited quantity of coins certified.

     The Central States Numismatic Society Convention, held in St. Louis last week, was typical for the downtown location. It was mostly a dealer show but the wholesale market remains brisk. Although the pool of nice coins available in the market is limited, dealers have been very aggressive for coins they need. Demand for specific series and grades are a consistent theme.

     The metals suffered setbacks toward the end of last week, and the downturn continues this morning. Gold is $667.90; Silver is just above the $13 mark at $13.07. Platinum is $1330. Make sure you check current prices on the NumisMedia Home Page.
