Final Shark Release: Tiger Shark Coin

709x300-Shark-mcg3-editedThe Perth Mint has released the final coin in its APMEXclusive® three-coin Shark Series and this latest edition got an upgrade! The 2016 1/2 oz Silver Tiger Shark coin is cast in .9999 fine Silver, making it the highest purity of the Shark Series.

shark 1Tiger shark pups are known for their vertical stripes that fade as they get older, but nothing about the Tiger Shark coin will fade. Featuring an illustration of the fearsome tiger shark swimming above warm-water reefs, the coin is a brilliant homage to an oceanic predator whose preference for coastal waters leads to risky encounters with humans and land animals.

The tiger shark’s dark coloring and light under-belly give it unique camouflage when seen from both above and below, allowing it to lurk on unsuspecting prey. This fourth-largest shark is one of the most ferocious sharks around the world!

But as a coin, there is nothing to fear except missing out. The 1/2 oz .9999 fine Silver is an easy addition to any portfolio, and capturing one or more of these limited mintage coins earns investor stripes and bragging rights.

Scottsdale Mint Debuts First Coin in New Biblical Coin Series

The first installment of the Scottsdale Mint’s second Silver Biblical Coin Series, Daniel in the Lion’s Den, is now available at APMEX.Daniel in the lions den

The coin’s reverse is inspired by Daniel chapter 6, as depicted in Gustave Doré’s 1860s wood engraving, “Daniel in the Den of Lions.” The coin shows the miracle of Daniel, who survived a night in the lion’s den after he was arrested for praying. According to Scripture, an angel held the lion’s mouths closed and kept Daniel safe until morning. The fearsome scene is cast in 2 oz of .999 fine Silver, antiqued, brushed and distressed.

With a limited mintage of 1,499 each, the series is a unique collection with high numismatic value. Each coin comes with a certificate of authenticity featuring its minting specifications and a unique serial number that matches the laser-etched number on the coin. The Scottsdale Mint issues the coin by the authority of the island of Niue, where it is legal tender.

Coin with a Cause
A portion of proceeds from purchases of this series will support a faith-based human rights organization, the International Justice Mission (IJM).

New release from the Royal Canadian Mint


We’re expecting a big hit with the latest release of the Royal Canadian Mint’s 2016 3/4 oz Howling Wolves coin.

The .9999 fine Silver coin is hauntingly beautiful, depicting two thick-coated grey wolves raising their own song from the hillside, under a bright moon and clear sky.

Wolves are known to welcome their pack and warn their enemies with a chorus of howls that carry for miles across their territory. The bone-chilling sound of modulated pitches echo and scatter across trees, ridges, and cliffs to surprising and bolstering effect.

The coin is the mint’s second tribute to the Great White North’s legendary hunter. Unique security features (including precise radial lines and micro-engraved lasered maple leaf) ensure that the coin is as sophisticated as it is radiant.

As an APMEXclusive®, the coin is minted on an incremental basis. A specific mintage cannot be determined, but as a comparison, the mint’s Wildlife Series and Bird of Prey Series each have a mintage of 1 million coins.

1.27.12 Weekly Recap

Gold crossed over the $1700 mark today on news of more stimulus measures by the Federal Reserve.  This news pushed the dollar down; Gold played its usual inverse position by jumping up several days in a row.

Precious metals started the week with a climb that was based on European news.  Negotiations between Greece and private debt holders are still under way. Sources close to the situation report a deal is close and private bondholders stand to take a loss of between 65 to 70 percent.

The Federal Reserve officially announced that the interest rates will not be raised until at least 2014.  The Fed believes that the unemployment rate still needs to be controlled. It anticipates that inflation will remain consistent with firm prices. The Federal Reserve’s actions indicate that they are concerned about a struggling economy, and unfortunately, this depresses the value of the dollar which had been rising compared to the euro. Federal Reserve observers are split on whether there will be another round of quantitative easing. According to the CNBC survey in January, about half of the respondents believe there will be a QE3, while 44 percent say no. These same respondents are optimistic on the economy, as long as the European crisis does not turn for the worse and create a significant global event.

The International Monetary Fund cut its global forecast of 2012 growth from 4% to 3.3%, and already is dropping its projected growth forecast for 2013 from 4.5% to 3.9%. Those forecasts are still not set; they are dependent on the efforts of the 17-country euro zone coming together to fight financial turmoil. The IMF has also called on the European Central Bank and other countries to support the euro zone with additional funding. In an update, the IMF said, “The near-term outlook has noticeably deteriorated … The global recovery is threatened by intensifying strains in the euro area and frailties elsewhere.”

The unusual Silver bullion coin, the Silver Kookaburra, was released in 1990 by the Perth Mint of Australia. These beautiful coins celebrate the interesting bird native to Australia. Due to the variety of designs and privy marks available on the Silver Kookaburra coins, these are very popular among collectors who buy Silver coins.

Each 1 oz. Australian Silver Kookaburra contains .999-fine Silver and includes proof-like frosting in the central design. The obverse features a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and lists the face value of the coin. The reverse displays the kookaburra. Every year, the coin has a slightly different design, which makes the Silver Kookaburra coins attractive to collectors. From 1990 through 2010, only 300,000 coins were minted each year; the 2011 and 2012 versions have mintages of just 500,000.

The Perth Mint originally began in 1899 as a branch of Britain’s Royal Mint in order to help supply the Gold sovereigns and half sovereigns, which were used as everyday circulating coins throughout the British Empire. In 1970, control of the mint passed from Britain to the Western Australian Government.
