There’s a chance on Wednesday, July 29, that the United States Mint will reduce prices on its line of collectible gold coins by as much as $50 for every ounce of gold they contain. The opening price of the highly-anticipated 2015-W $100 American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin will also get set on Wednesday.
The U.S. Mint cut pricing just last Wednesday, July 22, when the weekly average of London gold tumbled to within the range of $1,100.00 to $1,149.99 an ounce. The yellow metal has since fallen further.
The bottom line, expect lower coin prices if Wednesday’s AM fixing for gold is below $1,145.96 an ounce and the PM fixing remains under $1,100 an ounce. The latter is the one to watch. Spot gold is currently at $1,095.20 an ounce.
