1869-S Liberty Double Eagle NGC MS62

Rare “69-S”, but not DDO Cent

The 1869-S twenty dollar is plentiful in Extremely Fine and About Uncirculated grades. However, Mint State examples are scarce through MS62 and rare any finer, most being in the MS60 to MS61 range, the finest condition collectors are likely to encounter of this issue. The NGC population is 17 with 8 higher, three of the latter being MS62+ examples.

Gold’s ‘Freight Train’ Rally Continues With Sights Set on Record

(Bloomberg) — Investors continue to pile into gold as prices advanced for a fifth day, moving ever closer to the all-time high reached in 2011. A weaker dollar, negative real rates, worries over the economic cost of the pandemic and flaring political tensions have both gold and silver heading for their biggest annual gain in a decade. Silver, which rallied 20% over the previous four days before

US Dollar, Gold, Silver Price Analysis: Cross Asset Correlation

LIQUIDITY IN ABUNDANCE WITH CROSS-ASSET CORRELATIONS ELEVATED

As liquidity stemming from monetary and fiscal policy remains rife, cross-asset correlations are elevated, most notably this has been evidenced by the continued strong relationship between equity and FX markets. As market volatility drifts lower, high beta currencies have taken its cue from the pick-up in equities, which has largely come to the detriment of the US Dollar. As we highlighted yesterday, the negative relationship between the US Dollar and stocks is its strongest in several years. Put simply, the longer equity markets edge higher, the longer the downtrend in the greenback.

Case For Holding Gold – The Lombard Odier View

Tom Burroughes, Group Editor , London, 22 July 2020

The Swiss private bank sets out the reason for holding the yellow precious metal in portfolios. The commentary is another turn in the debate about the role gold should play in wealth management.

The case for gold often arises when risks appear to be higher than normal, or when fears erupt that the value of government “fiat” money is going to erode. Massive central bank quantitative easing – aka money printing – and the impact of the global pandemic create plenty of risks in the investor’s mind, even if it turns out that central bank new money gets mopped up before problems arise. This is a classic “safe haven” asset. Debate remains: the very time that a person might want to access their gold might be a time when governments try to seize it – as happened during the 1930s in the US.

1838-C Quarter Eagle NGC AU58

Gone with the Wind – Charlotte (Mint)

The 1838-C quarter eagle is an extremely popular coin among early gold enthusiasts. It is a first-year-of-issue and one of just two Charlotte quarter eagles that use the Classic Head, obverse mintmark design. All known examples exhibit a re-punched mintmark, that was initially entered too low. Writing in his Charlotte Mint gold coins reference (2008), Doug Winter says the 1838-C quarter eagle “Usually seen in VF and EF grades, it becomes very scarce in properly graded AU55 to AU58 and rare in Uncirculated.” NGC has recognized only a dozen uncirculated pieces.

Gold Is Dangerously Under-owned by Americans, Especially Now Gold Is Dangerously Under-owned by Americans, Especially Now

Far from being mired in the summer doldrums, precious metals markets appear to be on their way to making this summer one for investors to celebrate.  $20+ silver and new record highs for gold are both well within reach.

Even as the big tech stocks that make up the Nasdaq are posting rip-roaring gains, the best performing sector of 2020 has actually been the gold miners.  The HUI gold mining stock index is up 30% year to date – and up over 90% since bottoming in March.

Investors who bought just about any stock market sector near the climax of the panic selling have since been able to make big gains.  But valuations are now becoming stretched while the earnings picture for most companies remains shaky.

Perhaps equities will be able to ride the rising tide of liquidity provided by the Federal Reserve to still higher heights.  But Michael Howell, the CEO of Crossborder Capital, urged CNBC International viewers to consider diversifying into gold.

1914-S Indian Eagle PCGS MS65

Gem; Just Two Graded Higher

Here is a most impressive survivor from among this moderately low-mintage San Francisco issue – the 14th lowest mintage of the series. While its ranking makes sense when discussing circulated coins, when strictly uncirculated examples are considered, the issue is among the scarcest all ten-dollar Indians. Additionally, it’s seldom available with both problem-free surfaces and in high grade.  This one features lovely color and a highly pleasing overall appearance.

Similar to other S-mint Indian tens, the 1914-S is a significant condition rarity. This issue saw a mintage of 208,000 pieces and is relatively easy to obtain in circulated grades. Most Mint State examples grade MS60 to MS63, and are obtainable with patience and searching. Near-Gems are scarce and MS65 and finer pieces are rare. The PCGS population is only 12 with 2 graded higher (one of which is an MS65+). That helps to explain why we have not auctioned a PCGS MS65 since way back in 2007! This one features lovely color and a highly pleasing overall appearance.

1841-D Half Eagle NGC MS63

Highly Lustrous, Flashy

According to Doug Winter, from an original mintage of 29,392 pieces, the 1841-D Liberty half eagle is estimated to have a surviving population of approximately 150-175 specimens in all grades combined. These numbers are quite small in an absolute sense. However, in circulated grades, at least, this issue is actually one of the more available ones in the series, as the supply of many other dates is even smaller. A scratch in the right obverse field might be all that’s keeping this coin from a higher grade (and considerably higher value). In hand, it’s even more appealing looking than seen in our images. The NGC pop report shows just 3 at this grade, with 3 higher.

1851 Humbert $50 Variety Pair NGC MS61

Who Wants to Get “Slugged”?

To begin with, the importance of the 1851 $50 gold coins can scarcely be overemphasized. Ask any advanced collector of Territorial gold to name the most significant and memorable coinage design from the early California Gold Rush period, and the Humbert-U.S. Assay Office octagonal $50’s will likely be the first named. For many years, the 1851-52 Humbert-Assay Office fifties remained the only large octagonal gold coins struck under the auspices of the United States (in this case – provisional) Mint.  Although later, California private coiners struck round $50 coins. The importance of these coins is such that even well-circulated examples are bid up to high levels by enthusiasts eager to lay hands on these colorful mementos of the Wild West, the Gold Rush, and the famous “Forty-Niners” who rushed to seek their fortunes in the fields of gold in 1848-49.
