U.S. Gold Premiums Higher

     U.S. Gold premiums are on the rise. With Gold moving higher over the last month, demand has increased and large inventories are not that easy to maintain. At the beginning of August, $20 Saints in MS65 were trading wholesale at $2,000. Today, they are over $2,225. That is up $225 while bullion is up about $165. Most other U.S. Gold series and grades are showing higher premiums as well.

     In this week's LD Wholesale Market Dealer Price Guide, Half Cents and Large Cents are exhibiting added strength. The more difficult to find dates and varieties are in strong demand as long as the coins do not have unsightly planchets. However, even tough dates with minor problems will bring decent prices if they are rarely seen issues. The 1793 Half Cent in AU58 is up to $38,500 Market and the 1804 Spiked Chin in MS63 RB is higher at $3,550. The 1793 Large Cent Vine & Bars MS63 Brown advanced to $57,500, while the 1795 Plain Edge jumped to $7,450 in MS60 Brown.

     There are increases in the Lincoln Cent charts this week as collectors appear more aggressive than they have been in the past year or so. The following list shows a few of the many advancing this week.

1909 S VDB - MS65 RD - $4,725
1913 S - MS65 RD - $4,200
1914 S - MS65 RB - $2,350
1915 D - MS66 RD - $5,625
1924 - MS66 RD - $1,500
1925 S - MS64 RD - $2,425
