American Silver Eagle 25th Anniversary Set

American Silver Eagle 25th Anniversary Set was released on October 27 and promptly sold out in 4 1/2 hours.

American Silver Eagle 25th Anniversary Set values are scorching hot. So much so that some collectors who originally purchased one solely for their collection are now considering letting it go. With the profits, some say, a few bills can be paid with money still left over for other coins. On the flip side, many collectors have commented that they will never let theirs go.

The United States Mint sold the American Silver Eagle 25th Anniversary Set for $299.95. After they sold out, prices quickly doubled. The fervor, in part, led to a temporarily hiatus as eBay halted set auctions until sellers had physical possession of the sets. Now that they are shipping, several hundred auction listings are again on eBay.

Krugerrand Gold Coins – The Granddaddy Of Modern Gold Bullion Coins

The fabulous Krugerrand gold coin has become the most well-known contemporary gold bullion coin. Launched in 1967 from the South African Mint Company, it was intended to circulate as a legal tender currency. The Krugerrand grew to be sought-after that in 1980, 13 years after it had been released, it accounted for 90 % of the gold bullion market!

The coin is 22 karat gold and is composed of 91.67% gold and 8.33% copper. This gold alloy combination makes the gold Krugerrand more durable than other gold bullion coins. The durability factor was an important consideration when designing the coin as it was intended to be circulated and had to be resistant to scratches and dents.

The most popular version of the coin, the 1 ounce size, weighs approximately 1.09 troy ozs, is 2.84 mm thick, and measures 32.77 mm in diameter. In 1980, three smaller varieties also became available, each containing one half ounce, one quarter ounce, and one tenth ounce of gold, respectively.
