And the Mint sees it’s AGE 1-oz and Am Buffalo at $5,000

John Q. Coinage

Cag wants that price….NOW

Dave SWFL

Mayday!!!! Mayday!!! Mayday!!! Direct hit to silver today. Options traders dream. Looks like the juice is all squeezed out.

Major D

the result after cornering the silver futures….

The Major Auction Houses won’t allow uncertified/non graded coins to be auctioned off. However they do let some things through and make exceptions… Such as old Mint sets, Old rolls, Silver & Gold bars, Ingots/Shipwreck Ingots and Special Displays. Even 5 oz ATB rolls & junk silver…
Now and again it’s cool to see some older, or unknown collectables up for grabs…

Well Rick I have 2 $20 rolls of Shotgun wrapped 64d. jFKs from the Cleveland Fed. I was going to see if they slab them, likely so Ihave slabbed Ag Krand rolls! A lot of auction houses arrange for the slabbing wonder about real nice Ada so albums?

I’ve seen GC or Great Collections come up in several posts. It looks like the buyer bears the bulk of the transaction (unlike with eBay) with a 10% buyers fee, whereas the seller has a nominal list fee, is this correct? As for selling a collection down the road, I’m wondering if it wouldn’t be better to set up as a coin company and sell everything off in pieces, in order to write off the basis as well as associated business expenses– because the 28% capital gains tax looks to be a killer.

Major D

I’m curious, does anyone know of a good book or resource on starting a coin company? I’m interested in knowing how they operate. If companies like APMEX pay capital gains, how on earth do they stay afloat? It must be incredibly low margins and many of their sets must be loss leaders. Take their 2003 silver proof set for example. It’s currently priced at $44.99 and has 1.3382 troy oz of silver plus $1.06 in clad face value = $38.53 (based on $28/oz silver). I understand that their cost basis is not the current value. But they’re not making much… Read more »

I think a couple of guys that stop by here were coin shop people, JQC comes to mind? There are also many sellers/flippers/collectors lurking.
Expect more to chime in as I’m only experienced in eBay sales, and for the most part I sold there 10+ years ago..

MarkInFlorida

Businesses don’t pain capital gains taxes on their sale of inventory. They pay a tax on their net profit after deducting all business expenses.

Major D

MarkInFlorida, thanks. It’s now my understanding as well- and that distinctions are made between collectors, investors and dealers.

John Q. Coinage

Govt/IRS detest folks who invest in coins, gold, money, better used for anything else, so a 28% CapGain$ hit. Selling on eBay u can go Sc C & deduct acquisition costs & sales expenses….assuming u always looked to profit not collect

Rick

Major D, I enjoy GC as a shopper/buyer/evaluator very much, but that’s me(eBay too!). I like their site navigation, photography, and super quick service. Their 10% or 12.5% buyers fee is not only taken into consideration when bidding, it is also the lowest rate in the industry by a good bit. This is why you see an increasing number of high end rarities showing up in recent years. Selling looks to be a good deal. The tax situation? It’s hard to avoid anymore, I’m sitting in front of a huge mess that needs cleaned up by Monday, yikes!. I’d guess… Read more »

Major D

Thanks for that Rick, and sorry to hear about those cap taxes. I’ve been procrastinating doing mine, choosing to look at coins instead! I’ve never been to a coin show or local shops. My coin buying has been primarily eBay and direct from mints (US, Canada, GB), but also some coin + bullion buying from on-line sellers like APMEX, JM Bullion, M Barr Coins, and just recently Gatewest (on a great deal thanks to CaliSkier- just got my tracking number and looking forward to receiving). I’m about to test the selling waters for the first time here in the near… Read more »

REB @ First Spouse Gold, Back in 2007 they were highly anticipated & promoted. One of the draws was that they were more affordable than a 1 oz coin, first of its kind, and they were Minted in .9999 fine Gold. They sold out quickly. Many lurkers here can attest to the saga of the Spouse series better than I, especially CaliSkier and others. In 2008 and beyond they fell out of favor for various reasons, one of which, was unattractive designs, including the first Lady’s themselves honestly(sorry gals), The Spot price of Gold played a part as well…Some were… Read more »

Wow!

An old memory for some…
The Jackson Liberty is my only raw coin, but you get the idea-It really presents the 4 Spouse Liberties quite nicely I think…

Tax Return time is the very best time of the year to sell coins.

Also, if Iran goes boom-boom tomorrow, metals will climb Monday.

I always thought that MS-66-67 Saint Gaudains were the best play for gold.

Cheers

Rick

Good advice on the Old Gold, I’m trying to trade up for it by sacrificing the 15 year old Bullion as we speak…
I’ll accept the Metals climb, but Crude Oil? Not so much…

E 1

That’s why I’ve been in XOM for the last month.

Rick

The Cagster would be/is proud of your wisdom E1…

E 1

Rick,

But, he wouldn’t like this….

Money Market Funds are holding steady at 5.17% APR (SWVXX, FIGXX).

I did get some good tips from him though. Treasuries and metals was his strong suit. We’ll see if his Proof AGE theory holds up.

Back to coins…

Cheers

Rich

Hello E 1, it would be very interesting to know what the “Cagster” Proof AGE theory predicts. Are you at the liberty to share? Thanks.

E 1

Rich,

I don’t recall his reasoning exactly, but he thought they were a good move. It may have been the diminishing proof AGE mintages. I know he liked the 1/10 ounce proof specifically. Maybe he knew something we didn’t. He also claimed that the Mint needed to raise the premiums further on all proof gold going forward. I remember the choir being upset with that one.

John Q. Coinage

Despite Cag , all…ALL proof AGEs have value, no extra premiums for any value, buyers pay based on a 1 Oz. Price. Rick no way I could afford a full set of spouses, mine would kill me, anyway I got the 1st 3, the Liberty subset, And a sheet load of Jackie’s, no Eleanor, she was the queen but has spot absorbed any collector premium? Babs Bush for fun…..but gold was cheaper then, as was premium. Now looking for the next “thing”

Darek

I wish I bought several of these packages to fit all my unc and proofs coins, but I just ignored them when they were available. I remember that in 2007 Mint was offering free case for all spouses coins for each collector who subscribe and buy all of them. The coins were sold out before they went on sale, but Mint changed the game and subscription was cancelled. I have every unc and every proof with some extra ones. I do not wish Carter, Clinton and younger Bush bad luck, but I am waiting for next releases before I will… Read more »

REB

What?!?!? They had a case for the spouse coins? I’d love to get one of those. I only buy the proofs but I’d love to have the set together. I have the Atlanta Olympics proof coins cherry box. It’s possibly the nicest display “packaging” I’ve seen from the Mint in my 40+ years of collecting.

Smart and patient. There’s only so many full sets of the Spouse Unc and Proofs coins, and it isn’t many.
These coins were pooh-poohed and pushed to the side for the most part. Guilty of that myself..
But as I do recall, you were mildly pooh-poohed about a current product–The jury is still out on that one…

REB

“In 2008 and beyond they fell out of favor for various reasons, one of which, was unattractive designs, including the first Lady’s themselves honestly(sorry gals)”

Funny stuff. Actually, Helen Taft is much better looking on the coin than in pictures. Enduring the fattest president may have had something to do with the photos. Thanks for the mintage information.

REB

Thanks for the mintage figures. That’s exactly what I was looking for.

Major D

I just returned from a trip down the rabbit hole of past Coin News articles. Lots to look at there. I totally got detoured over what I was trying to find. Instead, I learned (from Sept 28, 2007) that the Mint used to routinely end one year’s set of coins when the next year’s set would come out. Makes sense, I wonder why that was abandoned? Next (from Nov 5, 2007) that the ban on melting went into effect in April 2007. I just thought it must have been that way since WW II. Funny, people wanted to end the… Read more »

Rick, order your Ventris medal now before price increase

Rick

John Q.. Many replies back at you, so I’ll keep them brief. Ventris! LOL✓ She already has her knee on my back, holding me down paddling me.. I keep saying ‘thank you mam! May I have another?’ What about an LLC S Corp?..Its company name ‘Rick’s Coins’ No? I could check with my most favorite SOS ever, and set it up online! I just found a Morgan I really like @ DLRC–How do they have no buyer fee? Something new?..E1 did say he likes them–I’m willing to shop there! No Hammer House commitments here!.. Slab a roll of Krugerrands John?… Read more »

Rick

E1,

I’m thinking I could get this collectable encapsulated while I’m at it!?!
After all, it is a scarcity. Only a few insiders have access to one–I have 2!
It’s not a matter of what you know, it’s who you know!
One may find one in the wild however. If you live/work near a certain secured Headquarters in Newport Beach, CA. Your luck may increase substantially!
ƪ(˘⌣˘)ʃ
Hmm, I’ll be back @LAX this summer for some work, I may hit #1 and go down there! It looks very nice..

Looks like a MS70 FC (Mint State example with full cartridge) to me.
Personally, I’d prefer a PF70UCFS or the RPR (Reverse Proof Retractable)

Rick

Tony@GA

At Rick – I passed on that coin in the day…. Reason… no wife to post her portrait!

Now, after all the AWQ’s and modern designs I’d pick that coin over many, many of the others.

Wish I would’ve bought it! As the ole adage goes… Hindsight is 20/20!

Rick

My favorite Liberty obv & rev., 2nd is Jefferson obv & rev. Van Buren is a close 2nd for the obv by itself..
A couple of those Classic Liberties could be an option for 2026? Probably not…

E 1

Rick,

Have them slab it for you when you’re there.

They probably could. There would be a fee I am sure.

Ask for David H.

E 1

and Rick,

Next time, ask them for the Gold Pen.

Cheers

Rick

I’m still in their probationary period unfortunately.·´¯(>▂<)´¯·.
You however being on their Double-Platinum, Lifetime Exemption Membership Tier, with 50 complimentary Vouchers quarterly, are in a better position to score me a Golden Pen from Dave himself!…
( $ _ $ )
As I’ve offered before, to work it off–I’m a great lawn care trustee that can keep it green–on your side! C’mon Man…

E 1

Rick,

Well, it’s green now and all good. In 2022, COVID, the Cali drought, too many funerals, shingles, and a bunch of other crazy stuff…..But, its green now. When I am healthy, my yard is healthy – get it?. So hey, if you are in the Valley, my best meet and greet place is Scotts in DT. Let me know. I might buy you lunch. But, I won’t sell you any of my coins,

Cheers

Rick

Copy that ✔️

Rick

What about that Proof Barber? Sounded like a keeper though…

E 1

Rick, I won’t sell any of my coins. Everything goes to my family, Step-Up-Basis. I am not a business man, I am a family man, and a true collector of most things beautiful and rare. This is my model. That is the message I want to pass on to them. The other message is “Stealth is Wealth.”

Cheers

Rick

Lucky family..Great wisdom…
I’m organizing/condensing/certifying most of my coins for my family as we speak. No more bulkiness for them to discover & decipher…Everything you have seen here, and unseen goes to them as well. Not for sale..They’re in for a couple of surprises, as you have seen more than they have, in fact, they have seen very little. The only thing I’m selling off is some appreciated $ Ag Bullion, and some over bought stuff from years back. It’s offsetting(a bit)of my current fixations..

E 1

Rick, I would like to sell off some modern junk. But, from my ancient old man experience, that junk could someday go from toxic waste to Big $$$ – new discoveries down the road is something to be keen about. So, I hold everything for 20 years minimum – regardless. If something comes up MONEY while searching through all that junk down the road, well – CERTIFIED!  It is best to leave the left over worthless junk in a stray box somewheres. However, what you hold for them, should be high and tight. Also, once a RARE coin hits the… Read more »

Rick

Great stuff! John Q. can identify with you there I’d guess…
From what I gather, he has a $$ HOARD $$ of goodies on his hands, in his boxes! Gifting his better half quite nicely.
We all want that I would say…

Major D

Inheritance is the best use of a collection, unless the rules change: taxes only on the amount earned from sales after deducting the valuation at the time of inheritance.

Rick

Estate planning is next.
Thanks Major D

“Step-Up-Basis.”

East Coast Guru

I see the mint has improved its packaging for gold proofs this year. Nice clam case vs the enhanced cereal box type packaging last couple of years. Right now, if available for sale, the mint would be charging $5,980 for the four coin set, $3,200 for the 1oz and $375 for the 1/10. Curious as to what the inflated price will be on May 2.

Major D

Right now, APMEX is selling the 2022 and 2023 4-coin set for $5,995 each.

Rick

At some point hopefully we’ll hear what cagcrisp has to say about it(cryptically speaking of course)…
Most however, already know what he’ll be hoping for…
Recently he revealed a glimmer of hope for the Mint in his mind. Claiming that they’re finally catching on to what he’s been pounding on the table–for years…

CaliSkier

The Alabama $1(Saturn Rocket) D 100-coin bags are down to 94 available. This is based on the ole’, put 99 in your bag and if there is less than 99, when you check your bag, you’ll see the total “item(s) in stock”.

E 1

Exempt from of all of Cag’s Monolithic Collums about treasuries, I was able to pull out this one golden nugget that I will use forever as a guiding maxim in numismatics….

“There are only a miniscule few number of rare coins that are worth owning.”

Unfortunately, the Cag Quatrains went down with the USS MNB.

Cheers

E 1

I would also like to know your views on Crypto…..Cag?

Rick

You might be surprised one day. A lifeline was thrown. It is now up to cagcrisp to grab it, and hold on tight…

Rick

Cali, anyone? You too TonyGA?
I hadn’t noticed a message on a recent visit to the Mint. Tonight I did.. I checked the number of available Alabama D-bags in my bag/cart. When I emptied my bag I noticed the following message…

“Please allow additional handling times of up to 5 days for products ordered between March 18 and April 17, 2024,while we transition our warehouse from Memphis, TN to Dallas, TX.”

John Q. Coinage

Rick, I’m planning on buying and boxing 68 bags o AL 1$. I don’t think Cag made the move still going to TBill Blog…. I do like and see the step up basis as an end game to an xtent,
Au & Ag out the gates ok today….

Rick

I didn’t know you were hedging on the Magnesium play! I’m guessing it is up with the other malleable metals too!(⊙_◎)

Rick

I think my brain is low on Magnesium obviously lol

CaliSkier

Rick, I hadn’t noticed the Mints message, re: Fullfillment Center relocating, as I usually just have a loaded bag with goods and just see the drop down view bag vs going to the actual checkout. Once I hit checkout, BAM, there was the message you posted.

CaliSkier

Dang, Rick, on that 40+ coin MS70 FS Au set for $55K. That would be an awesome set of GOLD coins to own IMO. These will eventually breakout, from their spot price, numismatically speaking at some point IMO. Just might not be until E1’s family, that’s being bequeathed, are our ages now or possibly longer? Meaning, when his kids are in their 60-80’s? Darek, that is awesome about your FS ownership! Either way, awesome, however when you say you own “every one”, are you talking about the entire series or just the Liberty subset? I have the PF Liberty subset(OGP)… Read more »

Major D, glad to hear that you finally got a valid/active tracking number for those 2017/2018 RCM “Coin Lore” sets from GateWest! Congratulations and I hope that you’re happy with the purchase after you receive and inspect them!

Major D

CaliSkier, I just received today, and Wowsers those are some spectacular coins! I bought 2 and wish I had bought more. Only $5 for postage and I see it cost them $22.50 to mail, so they were upside down on it. Total was $344.90 including postage for twelve gem 1-oz silver reverse proofs, which breaks down to $28.74/oz and spot is at $28.82 right now. That was some deal- thanks again!

CaliSkier

John Q, was that you that jumped on the 10 Bags of D
Alabama $1’s, first thing out of the gate this morning, at the daily “Fire Sale”? Somebody p/u 10 bags as they’d only managed to sell 4 bags since yesterday, until this morning, then 10 bags gone, w/in a few minutes. Don’t forget kids, those $1’s are 88.5% Copper 6% Zn, 2% Ni and just 3.5% Manganese(Mn)

Rick

Thanks Cali(Mn), my memory is lacking at times!

John Q. Coinage

Yup the Mrs. Uses $1 for….mah jong….wow

John Q. Coinage

Nah, too many left. Metals sure started slow the. Wham o…..

Rick

Cali, Like Darek said, they discontinued those 4-coin boxes almost out of the gate. Now they are fairly scarce, but pop up once in a while on eBay. Funny thing is though, the boxes were designed only for the 2007 coins that came in a smaller capsule. In 2008 and beyond they changed things up, now those coins come in a larger capsule and don’t fit in the 4-coin boxes. As a subset seller back then, I found bargains on the boxes & coins(2 Unc & 3 PF empty boxes remain).. With steady, gloved hands(just in case)you can transfer the… Read more »
