Notable Coins and Programs Revamp the Industry  

This time around, the market for uncommon to scarce coins is in the driver's seat. This time around, the King Farouk (Egypt) specimen of the famous 1933 $20 double eagle is the piece that is likely to garner the most attention during an auction that will take place in June at Sotheby's.   

The continuous rise in the quantity of extremely rare coins that are being put up for sale is a clear indication of how robust the coin market as a whole has become.   

The costs of coins that have been double certified, which means that they have been certified by Certified Acceptance Corporation (CAC) in addition to a third-party certification agency, are significantly more than the prices of comparable coins that do not have this additional certification.  

As concerns about the coronavirus continue to subside, coin exhibitions are once again opening their doors, which is a sign that the market sector that is more accessible but collectible is continuing to gain momentum.   

However, Peace dollars continue to be a somewhat surprise laggard in terms of demand. Morgan silver dollars continue to get an increase in interest. The majority of other denominations continue to show signs of showing small gains in interest.  

Additionally, there is a rise in demand for new collector products from the United States Mint. Following their introduction on March 11, all five of the available options for the proof 2021-W Reverse of 1986 gold American Eagle coins were purchased within minutes of their availability.    

In the same way as the spot price of bullion continues to be followed by the secondary market for silver-composition proof and mint sets released in the past, many other coins that have intrinsic worth also follow this trend.   

Although there is still a significant amount of demand in this region, the spot prices of both gold and silver have continued their gradual declining trend. Instead of being related to a fall in demand for the metals themselves, a significant portion of this price decline can be attributed to the poor performance of the United States dollar on the global market compared to other currencies.
