This week a set of three coins with an extremely low mintage and in a rarely used metal came to us.  The coins were minted by the Kingdom of Tonga, an archipelago situated in the southern Pacific Ocean.  The three coins are made of Palladium, and are the first coinage of this metal from this nation.

This week, a very rare modern issue came to us.  A collector called about a pure gold, one kilogram coin minted by the Royal Canadian Mint. It commemorated Looney Tunes, and featured Bugs Bunny and the entire ensemble cast.  The coin has a face value of $2,500 CDN, but of course the gold value far exceeds that amount.

Last week a client came in with a few pounds of base metal foreign coins of minimal value.  However, also in this bag was a gorgeous, original 1935 three-piece set of Texas commemorative half dollars in an original holder, worth several hundred dollars.  It was strange to find a set like this mixed in with foreign coins that were accumulated from travels. But, this happens more than you would think. Needless to say, the client had no idea and thought the entire bag was pretty worthless.​​

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.

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.
