​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.

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.​​

The price of gold seems to be stalled just below $1,300.  It has tested the waters but then comes back to the $1,285- $1,295 range.  There is a lot of talk about a nice run up once that $1,300 mark is solidly broken.  That said, it certainly seems like a good time to buy my favorite double play of the moment.  You can purchase $20 Saint-Gaudens or $20 Liberty Head gold coins for just above their gold value. ​​

The price of gold continues to flirt with $1,300, and the majority of metals watchers feel that the upside looks bright.  Now is a great time to lock into one of my favorite buys in this market: $20 Saints and Libs.  With nominal premiums over their gold content, you get to own a piece of history, not just a piece of gold.  We have a robust inventory of these coins. All are beautiful coins that we are proud to offer, and they are selling very well with our regular clients.  Come take a look and get some before the next big market move.  ​​
