American Gold and Silver Eagles are getting a New Face!

What do you think?

Lots of ideas and designs come out of the US Mint, what do you think of this proposed change to the REVERSE only of the gold and silver eagles ? I don’t like change in bullion unless its really attractive because bullion is designed to be standardized and stable and reliable. Its has been 34 years without change in the pattern, is it worth it? I for one am excited, if done very well technically these could be amazing and worth the upset. Canada does all sorts of wild things with its Maple Leaf and I think it hurts it long term, but a new pattern could be a positive thing in deterring fakes and exciting collectors. BUT only if done well on a mass scale. Read more here.

Market Report 2-6-2019

Gold and silver prices have been strong due to the uncertainty surrounding the recent government shut down. Good economic reports and the recent but temporary re-opening of the government has caused a slight correction. Currently buying and selling is even with slightly more buying than selling taking place over the counter.

Market report: More Buying Than Selling in Bullion Markets.

In recent weeks J. Austin & Co has seen an uptick in gold and silver purchases. There is a slight squeeze in the market right now as demand is outweighing supply. Bitcoin buying and selling remains unchanged at this time. The Diamond market is starting to cool due to the increased popularity of lab-created stones. Those holding larger diamonds may wish to exit the market at this time.

We have also seen a remarkable increase in larger estate transactions to the extent we have had to continually reduce our store hours in order to process the goods during these times of heavy market volatility. Such will be the case next week. The Grants Pass shop will be closed Sept 12th through the 14th to open again on Tuesday the September 18th. The Ashland shop will maintain normal hours during this time.
