Last Friday, I used the word “stability” (with a question mark at the end) to describe the market. This week I can remove that question mark – the market IS stable, so much so that it finished almost identically to where it ended last week. Not sure I’ve ever seen this before, but it gives me some confidence (something my Yankees need a little more of!).
Nice trick slipping a baseball comment in there, but enough about baseball – let’s get to our weekend specials.
Who’s looking for some back date Silver Eagles? Interesting change in the market lately. I see that premiums have (mercifully) come down on sealed 2010-2016 boxes, while boxes from before 2010 have all but disappeared from the dealer-to-dealer market. The highest retail prices we’re seeing are on 2011-2013 Eagles so let’s feature those at the new lower premiums – and stillbeat our biggest competitor by $500 per U.S. Mint-sealed box.
Speaking of beating our competition by a buck an ounce on one oz. silver coins, we have around 800 one oz silver Engelhard Prospectors that are ready to ship in lots of 100.
Save $100 per lot!
We also have the new America the Beautiful 5 oz silver coins in stock – featuring the San Antonio Missions of Texas. As usual, we expect these to sell out right away, so if you’re considering a box of these, please don’t hesitate. Those back date coins have turned into rather expensive collectibles.
And, as always, we offer a tremendous selection of cherry-picked certified coins that we’re offering at a fraction of price guide.
Certified coin specials:
This week’s hand picked numismatic gems include a beautiful 1852 Gold Dollar in MS65, a lovely 1811 Bust Half Dollar, a phenomenal 1910 Barber Proof Quarter and a rare 200 year old Capped Bust Quarter (actually 201 years old).
We just got offered a sealed box of 2014 Noah’s Ark 1/4 oz silver coins from Armenia. These coins have been minted in limited runs since 2012 and they always sell out. We literally can’t find another sealed box available anywhere in the USA. Please see below for details. Thanks
Palladium $1,761 (up another $54 since last week and up 10% in six months)
Thanks for reading. We appreciate you. Have a great weekend!
CERTIFIED COIN SPECIALS
I had a lot of fun going through this week’s coins. I’ll tell you, it wasn’t easy narrowing it down to four. In fact, in addition to what is listed below, we have a stunning 1888-O Morgan in NGC MS66 (their top grade for this date) and a great looking 1896 Proof Barber Dime in NGC PF66 that just missed the cut for the newsletter. If those spark your curiosity, feel free to email for images and prices. Thanks.
Here are the four that made the cut 🙂
1852 GOLD DOLLAR – PCGS certified MS65
That’s a good looking early-date gold dollar!
PGCS population is only 68
Price guide has this little beauty listed at $2,850
Your price is only $1,995 – nice price break!
Exact coin pictured. First come, first served
1811 BUST HALF DOLLAR (small 8) – PCGS certified MS62
Really nice details on this incredible 200+ year old coin!
For those who (like me) can’t afford the $95,000 MS67 version, PCGS price guide on this sweet MS62 (population 26) is $4,000
Your price? Only $2,695
Exact coin pictured – first come, first served
1910 PROOF BARBER QUARTER – NGC certified PF67 ULTRA CAMEO
with CAC verification
One of the best looking old silver proofs you’re going to see. In fact, for comparison, I’m going to show you a higher grade proof quarter that absolutely pales in comparison to this stunner
Your price is only $9,750. That’s $4,500 below price guide!
Exact coin pictured – first come, first served
Here’s a PF68 that, for my money, isn’t in the same league as our featured PF67. Truly a HUGE difference in eye appeal.
On these rare old coins, eye appeal is obviously HUGE. The pictures above speak for themselves. Our featured PF67 is a much more attractive coin than the higher graded PF68.
Note: If you prefer the 1908, we’ll sell it for $2,500 below price guide.
2019 ATB 5 oz SILVER – SAN ANTONIO MISSIONS (TEXAS)
This is coin #49 of the America the Beautiful set. The first 48 issues have all sold out. The lowest mintage coins (Hawaii and Alaska) are selling at insane collectible prices (4 – 5 times the intrinsic silver value) and rising.
We have only six boxes not spoken for.
Boxes are US Mint-sealed and contain 100 x 5 oz coins (500 oz total)
ATB collectors: we just came across a lot of 6 of the early date coins:
Sold as six-coin lot for only $978. That’s $100 lower than A***X.
Ironically, the coins are in sealed caps with A***X labels on the outer bags. Funny how so many folks buy from the big guys only to find that when they want to sell them back, Vault Wholesale offers higher buy prices so they sell them to us!
ONLY ONE lot of six coins available.
First come, first served.
2011-2013 SILVER EAGLES – US Mint-sealed Monster Boxes
(500 oz per box)
2011-2013 are currently the priciest back date boxes commonly traded.

link to competitor available on request
Please call or email for pricing on other dates. Thanks.
ENGELHARD PROSPECTORS – ONE OZ SILVER ROUNDS (100 coin lots)
Engelhard has been out of business for decades, yet their bars and rounds are still as in demand as ever.
Our leading competitor is getting spot +3.39/oz today for 100 coin lots and spot +2.99/oz for lots of 500 (link available on request). How about we offer them for a buck an ounce lower?
100 coins: only spot +$2.39/oz ($2,000 total for 100 rounds)
500 coins: only spot +$1.99/oz ($9,800 total for 500 rounds)
Please note – Engelhards are “secondary market” (aka USED, but not abused)
As always, we have a tremendous supply of 90% silver (pre-1965 US “junk silver”) at market leading prices. Right now, we can do even better than our published prices on Roosevelt Dimes, Franklin Halves and Walking Liberty Halves. Please check our website prices
We’ve been offered a rare sealed box of 2014 Armenian NOAH’s ARK 1/4 oz silver coins. These coins have been minted for the Central Bank of Armenia since 2012 by the German firm of Geiger Edelmetalle. They come in a sealed wooden box (nice dark, solid wood featuring the mint’s silver logo; box is 6.5′ x 6.5′ x 3″).
The box contains 500 of these striking 1/4 oz coins – a total of 125 oz of .999 fine silver.
2014 ARMENIA NOAH’S ARK 1/4 oz SILVER COINS
Mint-sealed collector’s box of 500 coins (125 total oz)
We can’t find anyone with a 2014 box in stock. Nobody! But a couple of our leading competitors still display their price (with a SOLD OUT notation) and each one has the same price: $6.50 per coin (= $3,250 if they had a sealed box of 500).
AP*** has the new 2019 coin listed at $5.81 each ($2,905 for a box).
Let’s beat that price by $2 an ounce, save you $250 AND you get the sold out 2014 issue.
Only $5.31per coin ($2,655 for the sealed box of 500 coins)
Only ONE box available – first come, first served.
