Gold and Silver Market Update (11/30/14) – Golden Eagle

After a fairly good mid-month perfoemance for the precious metal market, which seemed to signal an upturn, things went south again last week. Most of the benchmark metals fell and in some cases the decline was dramatic. Given the unexciting track record of equities over the same period it’s hard to be sure exactly what […]

What Does MCMLXXXVI Mean On My Gold Coin?

Why does my Gold Eagle not have a date? What year is my Gold Eagle, it’s not listed? What does MCMLXXXVI mean? These are all common questions we receive at Golden Eagle, and the answer to all of them is the same. When the United States Mint began producing American Gold Eagle Coins, they decided […]

Gold and Silver Market Update (11/24/14) – Golden Eagle

Finally it’s good news right across the board for precious metal investors, with all the main commodities rising in price last week. That’s especially welcome for gold and silver, but the platinum group did well too. Couple that with generally good results in other market sectors and it looks like a real recovery might be […]

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 […]

Gold and Silver Market Update (11/17/14) – Golden Eagle

Last week saw the precious metals market looking much healthier than it did in the preceding period. While the platinum group saw dips across the board nothing fell significantly – not even silver, which has been struggling badly for the last few months. In fact both silver and gold managed to gain. The overall economic […]

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.

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 […]
