Is it Time to Consider Peace Silver Dollars?

As contrarian investors, we’re always looking for depressed prices in various segments of the market, and one of the glaring examples of an undervalued coin at the moment is the Peace silver dollar. At the time of this writing, the melt value of Peace silver dollars is approximately $15.30. Lower end examples of Peace silver dollars can be had for as little as $20, which is at a very reasonable premium level and one which we haven’t seen in quite some time. In general, the premium for Peace silver dollars tends to contract as silver prices increase, which makes the current low premiums especially surprising, since silver is currently less than $21 an ounce. In today’s article, we’ll delve further into Peace dollars, compare current values to their big sister, Morgan silver dollars, and look at relative values of other popular bullion and semi-numismatic silver coins.

Do your American Gold Eagle Bullion Coins Have Numismatic Value?

The American gold eagle is one of the most popular gold bullion coins available in the market today. Through 2013, over 20 million ounces of American gold eagles have been minted, putting these coins on par with South African gold krugerrands and Canadian gold maple leaf coins as the highest minted modern gold bullion coins. As we typically see in the coin market, collectors have identified American gold eagles that were produced in lower quantities, which has caused the value of these coins to rise above and beyond the gold bullion value; resulting in bullion coins selling at numismatic values. In today's article, Atlanta Gold & Coin Buyers is going to take a look at the better date American gold eagle coins (by denomination) and identify for you coins that will bring you more than just your typical gold eagle premiums.
