Sir Kaiser, speaking of how the Lesser Precious Metals fare, according to some analysts, Silver is the most undervalued commodity on the planet. You usually won’t regret buying something when its undervalued or selling it when it is overvalued.

If you can solve that puzzle as to silver’s low, low value compared to gold I’d love to hear it.

Kia99

In past ages when the gold to silver ratio was 1:15 gold came from gold mines and silver came mainly from silver mines. Now In the age of industrial production, gold comes from gold mines and silver is a byproduct from other metal production whether it might be zinc, copper or gold. The silver produced doesn’t have to pay-its-own-way in the mine operations and can be dumped on the market as a perk to the principle mine product. I read variously 60% to 80% of silver production is secondary product.

mining.jpg
Rich

I like your reasoning, Sir Kaiser. Without interventions and manipulation, I guess the gold to silver ratio would be somewhere between 20:1 and 40:1 based on the characteristics of this bull market cycle (a bit higher than your estimate of 10:1 to 20:1, which is closer to the long term historical ratio). If the manipulators ever loose control of the gold and silver markets, we could indeed see gold to silver ratios like these, as well as much higher prices for the metals themselves.

Gentlemen, as the minor ups and downs of the precious metal market is a “slow news day” type of article I’d like to use the space to ask a question about other market comparables. Can you recommend a good free site that reflects what you feel is the current fair market retail price for resale of ungraded US Mint coin sets (either clad or silver) with COA’s in OGP (e.g. proof sets, uncirculated sets, commemoratives, ASE’s and special sets)? I don’t trust eBay as many auction prices are just too variable for me, subject to who’s bidding, time and day… Read more »

Major, another free online price guide for collector US Mint ungraded OGP/COA coins is the NumisMedia Price Guides, e.g., the NumisMedia Collector Fair Market Value (FMV) Price Guide. The free online PCGS Price Guide should only be used for PGCS graded coins and the NGC Price Guide should only be used for NGC graded coins. Both PCGS and NGC also provide their respective Population Report.
Dealer Wholesale Market Price Guides are usually by subscription.

Major D

Thanks!

Major D

Rich, I checked out NumisMedia’s guide and their FMV is low compared to actual retail prices that I see out there.

Rich

Major, the NumisMedia price guide FMV prices are generally lower, but not always, compared to the average prices listed in the PCGS and NGC price guides or to actual retail prices. In that regard, it serves as another baseline for price comparisons.

Major D

In that sense it’s not unlike investing in cryptocurrency like Bitcoin, where experts say only invest what you’re prepared to lose- although at least you always have the face value or precious metal value as a floor with coins.

SENZA

I was reflecting upon 2 thread interests which independently those threads were inconclusive but considered together may shed light:

#1. Insuring collectible coins
#2. Taxes and Capital Gains on coins

The very short version of this scenario is that if a collection of coins is acquired, then gains value over time and finally, is stolen rather than sold; the benefits outweigh those of simply collecting, selling and paying taxes and capitol gains.

Apparently I may have just described the Art World but what say you about the possibility of applying to the coin world.

04-09-2022_045.jpg
Jeff Legan

Hi Senza, your scenario would payoff if the insurance money is not taxed as income. I do not know if that is the case. I suspect any payout would be taxed as income (only because I find it hard to believe the government would let that opportunity slip by), but I know little about taxes or insurance. I think when you sell a stock, only the difference between the price you paid originally and the price you sell it for now is what you pay tax on (or get a break on). With a coin, the full amount you sell… Read more »

Hi Jeff, here is a recent article from Investopedia that provides some basic information on this topic (an especially relevant topic for this time of year, the dreaded tax season): Taxes on Physical Gold and Silver InvestmentsByCraig Anthony Updated December 31, 2021 Reviewed byJulius Mansa Many investors prefer to own physical gold and silver instead of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that invest in these precious metals. While the tax implications of owning and selling ETFs are very straightforward, not many people fully understand the tax implications of owning and selling physical bullion. Below is a description of how these investments are… Read more »

Fortunately, we can write off our stock losses as long as we don’t partake in a “Wash Sale”

On the other hand collectibles coins are subject to capital gains if held more than a year and losses can’t be written off the last time I checked which was a while ago so something may have changed since then.

But this process of graders and dealers taking a piece of Art and inflating the value is just very similar to what I think is happeing with coins.

My suspicious mind at work again

Exactly that’s why all the Youtube – Doom and Gloom Gurus have been wrong for so long – calling for the fake “Reset” and the next “Housing Crash” that just has not happened.

I’m in a boom area and these people who were in the stock market instead of buying gold and silver are now paying cash for houses and you don’t lose a house you paid cash for very often.

If you have loses on coin sales you wouldn’t make a profit. Therefore there wouldn’t be a capital gain tax due. As the 28% is only due on gain (selling price-original cost-seller fees=profit)
Or am I misunderstanding how a capital gains tax is figured?

SENZA

I’m not an expert on it but the capitol gains as far as I know are on profits exactly as you say –

The further down side to coin collecting is we can’t write off a loss if we sell one of those $73 coins for $23 we just lost $50 end of story – but with stocks at least you can write off the $50 if a wash sale is not involved

The IRS has it’s own written code for this you can google it and I think Rich mentioned Investopedia or investing.com may have better explanations.

Just checked and data-available is showing 7,020 each for P&D 25-coin rolls and 2,790 each for P&D 100-coin bags. So, this adds up to 454,500 for P and 454,500 for D. This looks to be a higher mintage for P&D than for previous states like GA, MA, CT, MD and MA to name a few. Am I seeing things wrong? I don’t know the mintage for 2022 Rhode Island, but the 25-coin D roll is close to sell-out with only 64 left as of 10:13pm April 10.

SENZA

I’m sure your numbers are good – what I’m trying to figure out at this point is if the Vermont is already sold out via enrollments –

04-10-2022_018.jpg
Major D

I’d sure like to know how that’s figured out. Seems well hidden

Major D

When the enrollment is sold out, does that mean the product available is 100% depleted? With other products the Mint adjusted data-available numbers before noon on the release day.

SENZA

Yeah, as far as I know, because I’m certain that is what happened with the Sally Ride 3 Roll set.

On the US Mint enrollment page it says Not available on both Rolls and both Bags for Vermont American Innovation.
