Today’s Best Buy: MS65 Saints
By Brian Zweig
We are able to offer MS65 Saints today at below market value… the same price every other dealer is offering MS64 Saints.
ASI has been an active trader in Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles for decades and a major supplier of graded coins for many years. Over the years, we’ve offered some outstanding deals on $20 Saints – including some great opportunities for scarce, mint-marked, and low-premium issues. Today, we have a limited cache of just 36 in a higher grade and it’s a great way to own physical gold with real historic value.
So, what is all the fuss about? Produced from 1907-1933, the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle coins are held to be the most beautiful coins in U.S. History. Their extraordinary quality and visual appeal have long made them a popular item among numismatists.
For Double Eagles, the production boom of 1908 was followed up by years of feeble mintages. All three active mints, including Philadelphia, cut back their $20 releases substantially and kept mintages low through the teens.
Amazingly, such a huge surplus of coins remained that all United States gold coin production halted. Not a single gold piece of any denomination was struck in 1917, 1918 or 1919. Finally, after the oversupply had dissipated, the federal government resumed making gold coins in the early to mid-1920’s.
When President Franklin Delano Roosevelt ended the gold standard in the United States in 1933 to alleviate financial woes after the Great Depression, a larger number of the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles were melted down, making the surviving coins a very desirable item for numismatists and collectors.
Even though the Saint-Gaudens’ outstanding obverse design was resurrected for use on US bullion coinage in 1986, the allure of the original mintages has never faded. Despite being such a well-known coin, several dates within the $20 Saint-Gaudens series remain highly underrated. It is common knowledge among numismatists that there are six extremely common dates: 1908 No Motto, 1924, 1925, 1926, 1927 and 1928. These issues are always available, even in mid to high grades.
As always with the monthly spotlight coin, we have obtained a few coins we can offer you at a price we feel will put your portfolio in the position to succeed in the future. The low mintages, survival rates, and high grade make these coins an outstanding play. We wouldn’t be surprised if these $20 Saints disappear quickly in a market where investors and collectors are hungry again to own gold in any form.
For the investor crowd, this is an opportunity to snatch up historic gold coins with great potential for growth. The value of the Saint-Gaudens $20 Coin is derived from the coin’s gold content as well as collector demand, meaning its value can be significantly affected by changes in the price of gold.
We know from historical trends that the recent surge in demand for gold will result in higher spot prices and premiums for gold in all forms, so you can expect that the value of numismatic coins in your portfolio will also rise with the tides. At the peak of the last gold bull market, $20 Saint-Gaudens coins sold at about almost three times the value of gold!
If your portfolio doesn’t contain $20 Saints, now is the time to add them. We have just 36 graded MS65 Saint-Gaudens $20 coins available at various common dates. We were lucky to obtain these from a private stash, and we are able to pass on the savings to you.
Just $2,099 each including FREE shipping!
