Prices decreased Wednesday on American Gold Eagles and other gold coins from the United States Mint

In response to falling gold prices, the United States Mint at around 2:00 p.m. ET reduced prices on twenty-six numismatic gold products.

The agency’s collections of gold coins have prices that can change weekly depending on the trending value of gold. The U.S. Mint most recently increased prices on May 24 when gold’s weekly average climbed above $1,250 an ounce. The yellow metal bounced slightly Wednesday, after hitting a 3-1/2-month low in overnight action, but was still trading near $1,223 an ounce.

In other news, the 2017 Platinum Eagle (20th Anniversary) comes out tomorrow and is listed at $1,300. For some reason, there is no news about this release I guess people are not interested.


Because it looks the same as it did when they first started the series only for $695 instead of $1300. Would you want to pay an extra $600 for a coin that looks the same only with a different date?

Now I like silver eagles and actually prefer they remain the same from year to year but then that’s the established pattern and the difference from start to now is only $33.
