Why Do Some Coins Have Ridges (Reeds) On The Edge?

If you look at early gold and silver coins you’ll notice that a great deal of them have a smooth rim – or at least a rim without any ridges (technically called “reeds”). This is most often found in very old coins that come from an era when minting practicing weren’t as refined as they […]

Why Do We Throw Coins into Fountains?

Given how many fountains adorn the malls across America, the question of “Why” we have that tradition isn’t often asked. Children grow up tossing coins into fountains and are taught at a young age to make a wish as they do it. In most cases, even the parents don’t know why we have this tradition – […]

Gold and Silver Market Update (11/10/14) – Golden Eagle

Overall we’d have to say that last week wasn’t a good one for precious metal investors, with the exception of a limited recovery in the gold spot price. Apart from that all the major commodities were down, and gold’s upwards tick wasn’t enough to make up for that despite greater volumes. The long bear market […]

Gold and Silver Market Update (11/3/14) – Golden Eagle

Last week was another very mixed bag for precious metal investors. Once again we saw falls in the key gold and silver prices, and these were a lot bigger than the preceding period. In fact silver in particular is back in as much trouble as it seemed to be in early October. On the other […]

Gold and Silver Market Update (10/27/14) – Golden Eagle

Most analysts are having a hard time finding any clear direction in the precious metals market after last week. The bread and butter of the sector, gold and silver, saw small losses; the platinum group did slightly better. The uncertainty seems to have afflicted most market sectors, perhaps heralding a general loss of confidence, but […]

Gold and Silver Market Update (10/20/14) – Golden Eagle

We were hoping to see a continued improvement in the precious metals market last week but, apart from gold, that didn’t really happen. It was far from being a disaster but with the exceptions of gold and rhodium all the key metals either stuck close to the week before or lost value, despite mediocre performance […]

Gold and Silver Market Update (10/13/14) – Golden Eagle

The precious metals market has made pretty depressing reading for the last few weeks, but at last there’s been some movement in the right direction. Last week saw gains for everything except rhodium; silver and gold in particular are looking a lot healthier than they have done in a while. It’s much too early to […]

Gold and Silver Market Update (10/6/14) – Golden Eagle

There’s still no end in sight for the seemingly endless slide of precious metal prices. All five metals dropped last week, and the falls were sharp right across the board. Firstly, the gold price. After an initial dip, then a brief midweek rally, gold plummeted on Friday when the US markets opened. Overall it dropped […]

Gold and Silver Market Update (9/28/14) – Golden Eagle

Once again precious metals have had a bad week. The only one to buck the trend was gold; everything else lost value, even in the face of a wobbling stock market. The excitement all seems to be in forex and oil right now, and metals are being dumped across the board. It’s worrying if you […]
