    I really like this design .. gonna buy it in RP silver set, regular silver set and unc set .. too bad the Mint discontinued the NA $1 EU C&C set in 2017 when they made 250k of the dollars in EU finish for the EU set .. otherwise I’d buy the C&C set too ..

    I guess 2019 will the last commemorative purchase from the Mint for me .. probably will get the 5oz version of the Moon Landing since all the denominations will have a common design ..

    Completely OT…

    For the WEEK the Dow traveled over 17,000 points.

    I’ve been trading stocks since 1982 and I’ve NEVER seen anything like what has happened in the past 6 trading sessions…

  3. So Krates says


    Major online “religious” bullion dealer offering any quantity ASEs @ spot plus $1.49. That’s $.51 below wholesale.

  4. jj says

    @cag, yea i been doing this a while too and it is incredible. still holding my SIRI from .07 cents 🙂

  5. A&L Futures says

    @ Larry

    The U.S. Mint lifted the HHL on this disaster.

    It’ll be interesting to see what uptick, if any this will have on sales.

  6. earthling says

    OMG. Have the flipper Dealers stopped buying also?

    No flippees left out there to catch a flip? I guess no one wants to be a flopper, eh? How sad. How very very sad.


  7. cagcrisp says

    APMEX has some 90% Silver for Spot + $.29

    Not a lot of selection but you can get as low as $10 face…

  8. MarkInFlorida says

    cagcrisp, in 1982 the Dow was under 1000, of course it couldn’t swing as much asit did this week, it was never as high as this week. How do the swings compare on a percentage basis?

  9. MarkInFlorida says

    Steve, I’m in the pucks series from the beginning, so I get every one even if they are overpriced.

  10. Daveinswfl says

    Wasn’t the 1987 crash much worse and even faster? Seems I remember 25% in the blink of an eye…..as I remember. The margin calls were brutal.

  11. Western Sage says

    I really think the main reason for slow sales of the 1/10 ounce Liberty is a mintage “limit” of 150,000. I mean, what’s the hurry?

  12. Tom P. - MA says

    The price on the 1/10 oz piece is way too high. Maybe $200 or even better yet $195. I mean the regular 1/10th ounce proof doesn’t sell anywhere near 135,000. The limit should have been 35,000.

    The percentage moves on the market were still relatively small compared to the old days. I think the biggest net movement was -4% one day. Once they start shutting down the market because of the moves, then you know it’s big. I don’t think they’ve done that since the 90’s.

  13. cagcrisp says

    @Daveinswfl ,”Wasn’t the 1987 crash much worse and even faster? ”

    I didn’t have a Lot of skin in the game in ’87

    I got a Lot of skin in the game in ’18…

  14. cagcrisp says

    @MarkInFlorida ,”. How do the swings compare on a percentage basis?”

    The swings are unprecedented. We’ve had Many higher percentage swings up or down, we’ve Never had the percentage swings Up/Down and Down /Up in a single Day or single Week…

  15. gatortreke says

    As Louis pointed out in the previous post, Proof AGE’s are selling for the same price as bullion. Provident currently selling random year for either the standard bullion AGE or the Proof with OGP for $1372.20. As the French would say, incroyable. A 2017 bullion AGE is $1380.20. I wonder who dumped the Proof AGE’s on the market?

  16. Daveinswfl says

    Black Monday October 19,1987 the DJIA lost 22.61% IN ONE DAY!
    That was traumatic.
    Cag, you are fortunate you were not heavily invested then.

    For comparison , the DJIA from the high two weeks ago to this week’s low was “only” 12.24%

    A&L Futures says “The U.S. Mint lifted the HHL on this disaster.

    It’ll be interesting to see what uptick, if any this will have on sales.”

    This needs to be Watched by Everyone that is buying Modern Mint Products.

    Regardless as to whether You think the American Liberty design is a good design or not, in Total the Design has been the Most Popular design in Revenue terms in 2017 and the American Liberty series is the Most successful Current Launch of a Mint product.

    Not considering the 1/10 oz. Gold, Revenue in Total for the American Liberty design has generated ~$55.0 million in Revenue for the Mint.

    IF the Big Boy did Not entire into the fray after the HHL was Lifted, then You purchasers of Modern Mint Products are going to have to find another avenue for some graded coins and the Modern Mint coin Chase will take yet Another Leg Downward…

  18. cagcrisp says

    APMEX is offering $20 Gold Liberty BU (Random Year ) for $1,320.65; that’s 3.71% premium to Spot

    APMEX is offering $20 Gold St Gauden AU (Random Year ) for $1,320.65; that’s 3.71% premium to Spot

    GENERALLY speaking when there has been a Downturn in Spot Silver and Gold the Big dealers have held premiums for a Period of time.

    This is different. Premiums have Already Decreased with the Drop in Spot.

    I can think of a couple of reasons for this:

    1. More than Ample Inventories that need to be moved from Sellers of Gold and Silver during the stock market crash of February 2018

    2. Dealers Think Spot is going even Farther Down and they are trying to get out ahead of the curve

    Bottom line, APMEX has some select 90% Silver for Spot +$.29 and as mentioned Above some Really Old Gold for Spot + 3.71%…

  19. Mintman says

    Proof AGE always held a 150-200 dollar premium over spot—I would assume due to precious metal IRA’s demand
    What everyone has to fear in this hobby is the loss of demand, which we see in all areas—moderns as evidenced by the small premiums for ultra low mintage “winners” as well as much lower “hammer” prices for classics at FUN

  20. Teach says

    Seems to be working now??? On topic – I really like the Thorpe buck, nice design!
    I haven’t picked up the new Rocks puck yet, but will be picking one up soon.

  21. Buzz Killington says

    With this drop in demand, the 30K mintage of a 1995-W Proof ASE is starting to look pretty normal, rather than like a rare coin worth $1K.

    Even though I am a pretty loyal buyer of Mint products to keep my collection current, I did pass on this 1/10 oz. gold. The premium is too high, and the novelty of this piece is too low. I like the design, but I already have it.

  22. jhawk92 says

    Totally OT…has anybody else used the Coin World Premier Coin slabs?


    I’ve been using them to store my individual Canadian SML bullion coins, and I bought them because they are touted as “completely inert and PVC free.” I don’t put labels on the inside of the holders. I was taking inventory of them this weekend and I noticed that every coin now has light brown toning around the rim. Color me really mad because I’ve taken a lot of time and effort to collect this set, and used these holders as they are the same size as a PCGS holder, so I have my own set of slabs.

    I’ve been keeping all the holders in green PCGS boxes inside a climate/humidity-controlled safe. In searching online, I found this…


    So, I guess these slabs aren’t as good as I thought they were? I really like the idea of having them in holders like this, as it matches my set of PCGS slabbed Silver Eagles. But now I’m thinking I need another option. The H38 Air-Tite holders could work, but the info there says ” H38 is 3.17mm deep, cap may not close completely but fit is acceptable” and the SML is 3.29mm thick, so I’m thinking those won’t be air tight either? Guardhouse and Marcus don’t carry products for the SML, so I’m wondering what other folks here might be doing with their “Northern Silver” coins?

    I’m not trying for a “registry set” here, just wanting to keep them nice for my kids down the road, and having a different design of silver to look at. Is it worth trying to clean the coins, maybe even sending off to one of the grading services to have them cleaned/slabbed in something better? Or should I just let it be and put them into something better? Thanks in advance for your input.

    Putting the ‘plunge’ into perspective

    However, the fact of the matter is that the Dow’s drop, even at its intraday peak of nearly 1,600 points, wasn’t among its biggest percentage moves of all time. In fact, it wasn’t even all that impressive considering the history of the Dow.

    Below is a table showing the Dow’s 20 largest single-day declines, in terms of points and percentages, through Monday.

    Largest Daily Point Losses Largest Daily Percentage Losses

    What you’ll note right away is that many of the Dow’s largest point declines aren’t anywhere near its largest percentage losses of all time.

  24. sharks2th says

    @KCSO – You’re right on point, so to speak. The point drops/changes on the Dow are irrelevant. The key number is the percentage change. The media is trying to hype the point drops as some massive panic situation when in reality there is nothing to panic about, as your numbers show. In fact, the proper perspective here is you can now get a 10% discount on the market. That’s not to say it won’t go down another 10%, but corrections like this are relatively normal to certain cycles of a stock market. This is a buying opportunity for the long haul investors, and a culling time for those who exit in a panic because they don’t know what they are doing. In fact, this correction is somewhat overdue.

    The media did the same hyping when the Dow started having triple digit point swings, which in fact were small percentage swings. After a while no one listens. The media likes to focus on the numbers that don’t really matter because it gives them a big headline draw. It is just the way the media markets itself.

    I’ve posted of few price charts here for gold and where I think it’s headed. So in light of recent turns in the markets which may have ramifications where gold is concerned I decided to take another perspective of the gold chart. In the prior chart I looked at the ascending triangle with an A,B,C,D,E, correction as a continuation pattern of a downward trend in the gold market. Here’s what really stood at me when I took a broader view and drew some simple lines turning the downward trend into a big long correction with an apex at the bottom. Notice in the chart I have linked below how price surges out of the apex into the ascending triangle. If this is what is happening, then this ascending triangle is in deed a continuation pattern, but NOT one of a downward trend. It would be one of an upward trend being that it’s part of a break out from the apex of the recent correction. This would be great news for some you as well as myself since I have plenty of skin in the game. So. according to this analysis gold could very well be headed to close to 1,600 by later this year. The E wave still has to come down to the lower trend line of the triangle to complete the pattern, but we should see plenty of green if this is the case.


  26. Dustyroads says

    Also of interest, notice how my 20 day moving average and 100 day MA are beginning to join again along with price. This makes for a very healthy sustainable bull market to begin.

    “With this drop in demand, the 30K mintage of a 1995-W Proof ASE is starting to look pretty normal, rather than like a rare coin worth $1K”

    Whoa, not so fast there. Don’t write off all the moderns yet. The King of the ASEs ain’t going anywhere. I’ll offer to buy all your 95-W’s for $2K each 😉

  28. Buzz Killington says

    @SK —

    If I had any extra 1995-W ASEs, I would sell them now. But alas…. I don’t even have one for my collection.

    The value of that coin is wholly dependent upon completist ASE collectors. I think, as time goes by, there will be fewer and fewer of those. If you look at a full collection of Proof or Special ASEs, I do find it a lot less interesting than, say, a collection of Classic Silver Half-dollar commems.

    I also think this is a trick likely to be repeated — making a special add-on coin for expensive sets (this is similar to what they did with these MIlitary Medals this year, but on a smaller scale).. If we get a few more of those in the same ASE series, it will definitely adversely affect the value of the 1995-W. For example, if the Mint made a special 2018-W ASE Proof, and only sold it if you bought a 4-coin gold proof set, would they sell 30,000 gold sets? I don’t think so — but then again, I’m wrong all of the time.

  29. BigL says


    Can anyone provide a link to the number of ANA members over the past 20 years or more? Current membership, I believe, is about 24,000.

  30. Hidalgo says

    @cagcrisp. When investing in stocks and mutual funds, one must think long term. During the great recession in 2008, the Dow Jones dropped to the 6500 mark. Now, almost 10 years later, it is around the 25,000 mark — an increase of almost 400% in 10 years.

  31. datadave says

    Got a note on the Pictured Rock bullion puck that it is going to be delayed further. Are the P pucks being shipped?

  32. cagcrisp says

    @Hildalgo, ” When investing in stocks and mutual funds, one must think long term.”

    You’re a Buy and Hold person.

    I’m Not.

    I think Long Term for the custodial accounts I manage. I think Long Term for a Portion of my portfolio.

    I think Minutes to Hours on my Trades.

    My Guess is that 99.9% on here do Not know what “T+2” means.

    I Have to watch it Daily and it’s a Whole Lot better than T+3…

  33. Daveinswfl says

    My note from Monument Metals said original ship date to providers was 2/19 and is now mid-March, likely 3/19-23. That means the bullion pucks will not be in hand before the last week of March. They cited problems with U.S. Mint production process.

  34. John Q. Coinage says

    Buss, have to agree the ‘collecting’ aspect of coins is slowly going the way of the dodo. ASE colletors may # over 1k, but are there 30k collectors who want the 2018 HR Gold, akin to selling better date Lincolns & such, the price$ are dropping for lesser grades & I noted even 09-S VDBs are soft……scary or time to sell, who knows? How many folks will be ready topay a good price for a circulated 1915 Barber 1/2? Au unc will sell common low circ grades, price dropping…..IMHO we need some new blood…somehow….

  35. earthling says


    What would Laura say? Don’t know but I’m going to find out. Haven’t been to the Legend Numis site in a while.
