The United States Mint raised prices today, Jan. 3, on numismatic gold coins. The adjustments were made in response to rising precious metals.
Only seven gold coins saw price increases, however, as many older coins went off-sale Dec. 31 and some of the more recent issues had already sold out.
The U.S. Mint’s collections of gold coins have prices that can change weekly depending on the trending value of gold as compared against this pricing matrix. Gold jumped to an almost 16-week high on Wednesday, extending its streak of daily gains to nine. The U.S. Mint is now pricing its numismatic gold coins based on an average of gold that sits within $1,300 to $1,349.99 an ounce.
