KABOOM GOLD HAS ERUPTED!
Gold was re awakened in the most startling way Friday. The Brexit vote pushed world markets into a near panic. Of course everything over reacts. Gold shot up as much as $60.00 in day. If you remember last week/weeks we saw curious movement from the big Wall Street players into gold. They sensed something would happen.
How does all this affect generics and rare coins?
People from all walks of life have always turned to gold as a “safe haven”during turmoil. No one knows how long the market will roll wildly this time. BUT (the big BUT) there is so much going on in the world and with the stock market always first to turn down, gold overnight is now on more peoples radars. We do know that the big market makers of generics already raised most bids 5%. They had too , many of them had little to no supply for the overnight demand they are now experiencing.
Rare coins as a group WILL eventually see a boost. They are NOT directly affected by bullion, BUT some people see buying BETTER gold as another avenue of safety. Plus, buying solid rare gold coins, you get a far bigger bump up in prices as demand increases vs just a % or two for bullion.
For the past few months we have been highly recommending Type sets in Gold (and all the metals-but gold was #1 ). Or you can go back to last weeks Market Report where we posted a few ideas of projects you can do in gold. The MOST IMPORTANT things to know-BUY PCGS CAC pieces especially with BETTER old. If you don’t care about quality and want generics , then you should buy as close to the generic bids as possible (you’ll have to ask your dealers what the bids are). Keep in mind, supply of ALL better and generic PCGS CAC gold is extremely thin (when we sell what we have posted-we’re cleaned out). We do expect the spreads to rise by Monday. You can always buy NON CAC gold-but beware, you stand a very high chance of getting an öff”coin. Unless you can buy with a small % of the bids, you don’t want those coins.
Of course you can always buy bullion out right-but be prepared for higher margins and slow delivery as supplies are dwindled there too.
Do note: ALL rare metals of coins will enjoy this upcoming “hard asset” demand. Just gold is in the public eye and is more easily understood. We really believe your going to see a huge shift by a lot of people into hard assets shortly. This Brexit thing was a wake up call.
Can’t say we have any ultra rarities or a big offering this week. We do have real SUPERB GEM great looking coins. We decided to unleash our generic gold now. So we’re pricing them at small mark ups-over what we paid-which was before gold jumped $60.00 an ounce. Highlights this week include:
