Prices of collectible gold coins produced and sold by the United States Mint could go down on Wednesday, May 27.
It’ll be close, whether or not that happens. The U.S. Mint averages London gold prices from each Thursday through Wednesday to determine its weekly pricing for gold coins.
Coin News Update: Coin prices decreased Wednesday at around 2:00 PM ET. New prices are shown in the "To" column further below.
Today’s sharp drop in the yellow metal, down about $18 toward $1,187 an ounce, tilted the chances a bit more in favor of lower coin prices. For that to happen, Wednesday’s London AM gold price must stick to below $1,190.87 an ounce and the PM price has to stay under $1,200 an ounce. Here’s a table showing the possible new prices:
