PCGS Certified Gold Coin Price Updates Posted by Brian Ford on August 07, 2013
The Professional Coin Grading Service (www.PCGS.com) has updated its price guide and the changes are what most analysts would expect after watching the gold spot price fall for five straight sessions. Some coins held their value better than others while other fell as much as or slightly more than gold has fallen in the last week.
St. Gaudens $20 gold coins are some of the most popular gold coins for investors, as they sometimes gain value faster than gold bullion and since they are classified as collectibles they retain a level of privacy that may not be accessible with gold bullion investments. The MS62 Saint Gaudens Double Eagle is now listed at $1750, down from $1755. The MS63 variety of the Saint is now priced at $1840 according to PCGS, down from $1845. The MS64 St. Gaudens piece, in common dates, is down $10 to $2010, and the MS65 Saint is unchanged.
The MS62 Liberty head $20 piece is down $5 to $1790, while the MS63 is down $10 to $2040. The MS64 Lady Liberty $20 piece, in a deviation from its lower-grade counterparts, is up $15 to $2400 in common dates. The majority of $10 gold pieces are down $5 in common dates, while $5 and $2.50 gold coins were largely unchanged. The prices mentioned above are compiled by PCGS employees surveying gold coin dealers around the nation, and Certified Gold Exchange clients are always offered discounts from the PCGS Price Guide because we are a large-volume discount dealer, handling only sight-seen certified gold coins.
