Stack’s Bowers Galleries’ New York Store will be running in-store bullion specials each week.  While it sounds incredulous to say we have too much gold or silver, we actually do!  Lately we have been buying more than we are selling. To bring our inventory levels back in line, each week we will lower the premium on a particular overstocked bullion item.

We are now featuring our new eBay Deals section, and already it has been a tremendous success, garnering rave reviews.  Each week we will be offering a new deal priced to be irresistible. The deal may be from our currency department, or it could be rare or bullion coins. 

Coming up next week will be a beautiful 1876 $20 Liberty graded AU-58 by PCGS!​

Gold took a big drop at the end of last week and did not improve by Monday morning.  This looks like a good opportunity to “buy the dip.”  We have plenty of gold bullion in stock, so we can help you do this!  We also continue to have a great stock of $10 Saints and Liberty Heads at just slightly over spot –my favorite buy at the moment. ​​

​GS Asks:
Why do common date Brilliant Uncirculated Morgan dollars seem to vary in thickness from 2.4mm to 2.8mm? The Guide Book makes no mention of thickness of any coin meant for circulation and there must be a good reason why they don't. Web sites that I deem unreliable, like Wikipedia, say a Morgan dollar is 2.4mm thick but my 1921 is 2.8mm and a 1886 is 2.56mm.

Just in to our eBay store: a new supply of coins and all of them are on display in our New York store if you want to view them in person.  We also have a great stock of ancient coins that are not on any electronic platform but can only be viewed in store.  So come in and see what we have to fill your want list.  Also we are now selling some of our most popular books in our eBay store, all shipped for free.  Visit us on line or visit us in person, either is a great way to check us out.

With gold’s spot price staying solidly above $1,300g, it is anyone’s guess as to where it is going.  I reiterate my favorite gold play at this time: classic $20 gold Saint-Gaudens or Liberty Head coins which are trading for a slight premium over spot.  Essentially we can sell them for the same price as a one ounce generic gold coin, but you are the winner if the premiums ever go back up on these historic coins.  ​​

Gold has finally broken through the $1,300 barrier, and we believe that this could be a great time to put some gold bullion into your portfolio  As might be expected, we have bought a good deal of gold recently as gold climbed back up. But, that will really benefit the gold buyer as we have a great selection, including traditional bullion coins such as American Eagles, Krugerrands, Maple Leafs, etc., as well as my favorite play at the moment, common date $20 gold coins of the early 20th century.​​
