By, Christopher R. McDowell, Editor, The Journal of Early American Numismatics, formerly The Colonial Newsletter

Q. David Bowers' newest book, The Copper Coins of Vermont and Interrelated Issues 1783-1788 is the culmination of over 60 years of study devoted to numismatics and the Vermont copper series. Since 1952 Bowers' contributions to the "Hobby of Kings" have gone unabated and with the passing of Eric Newman, Dave now assumes the mantle of Elder Statesman of the hobby and is perhaps the greatest ambassador coin collecting has ever known.

Consider $20 Liberty Head and Saint-Gaudens double eagles as a great way to invest in gold.  We have a lot of clients who are coming to the realization that the premiums on these classic gold coins have dropped so low that they trade very close to their gold value.  Instead of purchasing gold Eagles, Maple Leafs or Krugerrands, these classic gold coins are real pieces of history that traded as money in their time. Years ago, they had a nice numismatic premium, but this has pretty much evaporated as gold climbed in price.  Could that premium come back? No one can be certain, but the downside here is minimal since these can be purchased for close to their gold value.  We have a great selection in stock, so come by today and put some away.

The bullion market is getting very interesting lately.  Even though silver has not been able to crack $17 per ounce, the supply of silver seems to be drying up.  Wholesalers have monster boxes of silver eagles on back order, and the premiums have come up on 100-ounce bars.  Maybe this is a good time to pick up some silver for your portfolio -- the signs may be telling us something.

Stack’s Bowers Galleries invites you to visit New York City and enjoy a day on us. Come to our New York Store now through January 31, 2018 and sell us $500 or more worth of coins, currency or bullion and we will pay for your train ticket.*

Come see a rare and valuable Yap Stone in our New York Store. This is a very unusual piece of money from the tiny island of Yap in the South Pacific, made of stone that was actually imported to the island.  The stone on display at our West 57th Street store weighs 62 pounds and is quite attractive.  It represents an interesting form of currency from a bygone era, not often seen or traded.  This example is going to be auctioned in our January New York International coin sale right here in the Big Apple.  So if you want your very own Yap stone, come see it and place your bid.  Someone is going to go home with a huge piece of pocket change.
