Gentlemen Wear Gold

In the 1800s, a $20 Gold coin (which has 0.9675 ounce of pure Gold) would buy a nice gentleman’s suit. In 2013, with the price of Gold at $1,300 per ounce, you could also get a very nice gentleman’s suit, plus a pair of shoes, a shirt and a tie to match.Print

The Price of a Gallon

In 1930, two dimes bought a gallon of gas. The Silver content in a couple of dimes made in 1930 would still be worth close to a gallon of gas today.* The difference is that gas, priced in dollars, in 1930 was about $0.20 per gallon compared to $3.50+ per gallon in 2013.Gas_Infographic

You Can Still Get 2013 Graded Silver American Eagles While Supplies Last!

2013 Certified (Silver American Eagles)

The Silver American Eagle is one of the most popular Silver bullion coins in North America, and 2013 Certified Silver American Eagles are highly valued by collectors. Certified Eagles are in demand for many reasons:

  • Graded Coins: These coins are graded perfect 70 or near perfect 69 on the Sheldon Grading Scale of 1 (barely discernible) to 70 (absolute perfection). First Strikes and Early Releases are available.
  • Certified And Authenticated: 2013 Certified Silver American Eagles come in sealed plastic casings from PCGS and NGC, two of the industry’s leading grading services. This protects the coins and guarantees their condition.
  • Classic 1916 Design: Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty design is widely considered one of the most beautiful American coin designs. It is featured on the obverse (or front) of the Silver Eagle.
