2013 Bison Canada $100 for $100 Silver Coin

Recently, the Royal Canadian Mint launched a new program similar to their “$20 for $20" coin program. That highly successful program sold coins with a face value of C$20 at a price of C$20. Those coins contained about a quarter ounce of silver. This new program is the “$100 for $100" silver coin program, and each coin will contain 31.6 g of silver which is 1.016 troy ounces.

2013-100-dollar buffalo-silver-coin

The first coin in the series is the 2013 Bison $100 Silver Coin. It's reverse side features three bison stampeding through the countryside. This release is honoring wildlife in motion and depicts these magnificent animals as they would be in the wild. Claudio D'Angelo designed the reverse image and Susanna Blunt designed the obverse side which contains a portrait view of Queen Elizabeth II.

These silver coins are struck in .9999 fine silver and have a diameter of 40 mm. The Royal Canadian Mint has placed a 50,000 unit maximum amount on these beautiful silver coins. Available to United States and Canadian residents through the Mint, these coins are destined to sell out in a short amount of time.

The $20 for $20 Royal Canadian Mint coins saw all eight coins sell out. Those coins contained 7.96 g of .9999 fine silver which is equivalent to 0.256 troy ounces. The $20 coins had a diameter of 27 mm which made them close to the size of a United States quarter which is 24.6 mm. The $100 coins will contain a matte proof finish which is different than the specimen finish used on the $20 for $20 Canada silver coins.

The Mint began with a three unit per household limit but change that to one per household which could indicate a great amount of popularity for this silver coin.

2013 American Eagle Gold Proof Coins

Yesterday, on April 18, 2013, the United States Mint started sales for the 2013 American Gold Eagle Proof Coins. Since 1986, the Mint has been offering these beautiful gold coins to the public. The Gold Eagle Proof coins are available in four different sizes; 1 ounce, 1/2 ounce, 1/4 ounce, and 1/10 ounce. The Mint also offers all four coins in one complete boxed set.

american-gold-eagle-proof-coin-2013

The obverse side of the coin is a depiction of Liberty. In her left hand, she is holding an olive branch and a lit torch in her right. The word,"Liberty" is placed at the top of the image and the date of 2013 is placed to the right of the center. The reverse side of this gold coin has an image of an eagle that is landing in a nest. Two other Eagles are sitting in the nest and the words,"United States of America" is placed at the top of the image. The bottom of the image contains the amount of .999 fine gold in each respective coin and also states the coins face value.

Spot gold is currently trading in the high $1300 range after falling from the $1600 range in just the past few weeks. Current prices on the coin are initially being set at the following amounts:

2013 American Gold Eagle Proof Coins
1 oz. $1,810.00
1/2 oz. $920.00
1/4 oz. $472.50
1/10 oz. $200.00
4 Coin Set $3,352.50

Many collectors will probably wait until the following week to invest in this gold coin. The Mint follows a pricing grid that would probably reflect a required change in lowering these coin prices by the middle of next week. They already have high premiums compared to the current price of Spot gold, so that may also be a hindrance for many purchasers who believe the premiums may be too high.

Last year, all four denominations of Gold Proof Eagle coins saw new mingage lows. This is not reflected on a price escalation of premium on the secondary market for American Gold Eagle Proof coins. The 1 ounce uncirculated Gold Eagle coin does see a premium when it reaches a low mintage number. It will be interesting to see if the Eagle Proof coins see a similar result in the future.


2013 Canadian Wolf $20 for $20 Coin

canada-silver-wolf-20-coinThe Royal Canadian Mint has started sales for the 2013 $20 for $20 Wolf Silver Coin. This coin contains .9999 pure silver and has a legal tender face value of $20.

Coins in the $20 or $20 series have sold out quickly after being introduced by the Mint. This coin has a mintage of 250,000 units and should sell out too. The design of the coin has a traveling Wolf that is crossing a barren landscape. The face value of 20 Dollars is shown next to the image as is the year of issue,"2013" and country of origin, "Canada."

The obverse side of this $20 for $20 Silver Wolf coin has a portrait image of Queen Elizabeth II.

This Canadian silver coin weighs in at 7.96 g and has 0.256 try ounces of silver in it. At today's spot silver price of around $29, this coin carries about seven dollars worth of silver. The diameter of the coin is 27 mm and the coin has a serrated edge.

This is the eighth coin in the $20 for $20 Canadian silver coin series and follows the Canadian Hockey coin which is just about sold out as of this writing.

It will be interesting to see if these coins hold premiums in the future. Canada is one of the only countries to offer face value coins at the same dollar level.

2013 Canadian Hockey $20 for $20 Fine Silver Coin

2013-canadian-silver-hockey-coinThe Royal Canadian Mint recently released its latest coin in the popular $20 for $20 Fine Silver Coin series. This coin is the 2013 Canadian silver Hockey Coin. Hockey fans are going to love this silver coin and I know plenty of Canadians and Americans that love their hockey.

The featured image on the coin is a hockey player in action after whipping the puck. 20 Dollars is printed at the top of the image. Yes my coin collecting friends -- this silver coin has a face value of $20 in Canadian cash and at today's spot silver price of $32, it also contains eight dollars in .9999 silver.

This is a limited edition coin with a mintage of 250,000 units and is being sold to Canadian and United States residents. Previous coins in the $20 for $20 Fine Silver Coin have sold out so this one is likely to be a hot one too. I imagine this will be a great gift for kids or a ravaging hockey fan. Seriously, how can you go wrong with a silver Canadian hockey coin?

For those that care, the weight of this coin is 7.96 g and has a diameter of 27 mm. It's edges serrated and it's one darn fine looking coin.

Here's a video of it below:

2012-P Hawaii Five Ounce Silver Coin Prices Escalate on the Secondary Market

hawaii-5-Silver-ounce-coinA change of events has occurred in the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin series. Surprisingly, the 2012-P Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin has sold out. Secondary market prices have escalated up to as much as $500 per coin. This exciting news puts new thunder into the series that was slowly slipping in interest.

The silver bullion version is also sold out at leading dealers such as Providentmetals.com. Prices for this silver bullion version are also selling at a premium on eBay. Routinely, these coins of been available through the year of issue and the following year. This policy is obviously changed though, and that's good for collectors that want to see price escalation in the coins they buy. Although, we really do buy them for their beauty and numismatic value -- I guess. Seeing a price escalation is exciting!

Initially, the 2012-P Hawaii Volcano 5 Ounce Silver Bullion Coins were priced at $204.95 per coin. In October of 2012, the price was raised to $229.95 when silver prices escalated. The mint had stated that this America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin had a mintage of 25,000 units. Obviously, they are striking them in accordance to how many planchets are available and how much silver they have.

Recently, silver has seen a shortage and it has been hard to come by by major producers of coins such as the United States Mint. Possibly, this is a good sign for silver stackers as shortages often indicate a high demand for the precious metal and a price of escalation in the future.

Here are recent sales figures for the 2012-P versions of the 5 ounce coins sold by the mint in the America the Beautiful series.

2012-P El Yunque National Forest 15,695
2012-P Chaco Culture National Historical Park 13,160
2012-P Acadia National Park 13,854
2012-P Hawaii Volcanoes 14,767
2012-P Denali National Park & Preserve 11,519

 

Numismatic collectors of coins know that low mintage numbers play a significant role in the value of a coin series. This sellout may indicate that the mint has only struck around 15,000 coins for the 2012 5 ounce silver coins. We will soon find out.

Stay tuned for the release of the next America the Beautiful Silver bullion coin in the series which is the White Mountain National Forest 5 ounce Silver Bullion Coin.

2013 Pronghorn Antelope Silver Bullion Coin

The latest coin image in the Canadian Wildlife Silver Bullion Coin series has just been released, and it's a beauty. Kudos to the Royal Mint for their designs in this series. The latest coin is the 2012 Canadian Pronghorn Antelope Silver Bullion Coin, which is number five of the six coin series.

2013 Pronghorn Antelope Silver Bullion Coin

Emily S. Damstra, the coin designer and Canadian artist depicted a beautiful rendering of the Pronghorn Antelope on this stunning coin. The 2013 Pronghorn Antelope Silver Coin is one ounce of .9999 fine silver.

The reverse side of the coin contains the image by Ms. Damstra. It also includes the inscriptions, “Canada” at the top, and “Fine Silver 1 oz Argent Pur” at the bottom. The obverse of the coin has an image of Queen Elizabeth II, as do all the other coins in the wildlife series.

The maximum mintage on this coin is 1 million. All coins in this series will have this mintage amount. Silver Coins in the Canadian Wildlife series have been extremely popular due to their striking designs, and pricing at just a few bucks over spot silver. Increasing premiums on the coins is expected, as the first two coins are now sold on the secondary coin market at higher levels than their initial selling price. The 2013 Pronghorn Antelope Silver Bullion Coin makes an excellent numismatic investment at silver bullion prices.

2012 San Francisco American Silver Eagle Two Coin Set Product Page Revealed

2012 San Francisco Silver Eagle Set

Last year, the United States Mint sent out a survey to some of their previous customers. The survey asked questions regarding interest in the possibility of special Silver Eagle sets. Many coin collectors speculated that the Mint would offer such a special set in the year 2012. This week, a product page holder confirmed that they definitely will be selling that speculated set.

This first special set is a 2012 San Francisco American Silver Eagle Two Coin Proof Set. The set will include a 2012-S Proof Silver Eagle and a 2012-S Reverse Proof Silver Eagle. As of this writing, that will make both coins unique to the set. In the past, the Mint has sold special sets that include other coins that can be bought individually outside of the set.  In the past, Silver Eagle Proof coins were minted at the San Francisco Mint (1986-1992).  Those coins carry the "S" mint mark.  There has never been a Reverse Proof Silver Eagle with the "S" mint mark.  This will make it the 3rd Reverse Proof minted since the series began.

This set of San Francisco Silver Eagles will be sold from June 7, 2012 to July 5, 2012. There will be no household limits, and there will be no maximum mintage. As of this writing, the price of this product has not been finalized. Speculations have been anywhere from $120-$165. The 2011 25th anniversary set was priced at $300 and contained five coins.

How many coins could possibly sell?  Get this...

“In an effort to publicly share the rate of sales of what we expect to be a very popular product, there will be a sales odometer placed on the U.S. Mint’s website ordering page to track daily sales of the set,” said Tom Jurkowsky, Mint public affairs director.

The coins will start shipping in late July according to the Mint.

Some Silver Eagle collectors were disappointed in the decision of the United States Mint to only sell 100,000 of the 25th anniversary sets. They also initiated a household ordering limit of five, which allowed the coins to sell out in a single day. Premiums on the set quickly jumped to double and triple the set price on secondary market auction sites such as eBay.

This offering allows the market to set its own mintage. If a household wants 10 of the special San Francisco Silver Eagle sets, they should be able to get them. Speculation is all over the board on with the final number will be of sets sold. It will be interesting to watch on the secondary market.

Will you be buying one of these sets?  Will you buy more than one?
