brianPrice Alert: U.S. Gold Master Sets at 15-Year Lows!

By Brian Zweig

Why are we so excited about this month’s Spotlight offer? U.S. gold type sets have been a collector favorite for decades – but now they’re one of the very best values too! These mini-collections are currently selling for the lowest levels we’ve seen in over a decade. In fact, some are now available for less than half of their peak values! In this alert, we’d like to share why U.S. gold type sets are both a pleasure to own – and a truly savvy buy at today’s levels.

One of the Most Popular Ways to Own U.S. Gold

Assembling a type set is one of the most popular ways to collect American gold coins. That is, the goal is to own one piece from each denomination and design (as opposed to multiple dates within the same series). This strategy lends itself particular well to U.S. gold coins, as there is a plethora of key dates. Almost every U.S. gold series contains one (or multiple) ultra-rarities that can cost five or six figures, making collecting by date prohibitively expensive. By comparison, type sets can be assembled (even in high grades) affordably.

There are three basic U.S. gold type sets:

4-Piece Basic Liberty

  • $2.50 Liberty Quarter Eagle (1840-1907)
  • $5 Liberty Half Eagle (1839-1908)
  • $10 Liberty Eagle (1840-1907)
  • $20 Liberty Double Eagle (1850-1907)

4-Piece Basic Indian/Saint

  • $2.50 Indian Quarter Eagle (1908-1929)
  • $5 Indian Half Eagle (1908-1929)
  • $10 Indian Eagle (1907-1933)
  • $20 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle (1907-1933)

11-Piece U.S. Gold Set

  • All four coins in the Liberty set
  • All four coins in the Indian/Saint set
  • Type 1 Gold Dollar (1849-1854)
  • Type 3 Gold Dollar (1856-1889)
  • $3 Gold Princess (1854-1889)

From time to time, major numismatic retailers have promoted basic and complete U.S. gold type sets in higher grades. Almost without fail, these large-scale promotions end with the same result: a shortage of coins in the marketplace. As rare vintage coins with a finite supply, even a mild uptick in demand can absorb available coins in the marketplace. When stocks run low and there are orders to fill, prices gravitate upwards.

This phenomenon has occurred many times over the decades, but three “supply shocks” truly stand out in our mind: spring 2006, late 2009, and mid-year 2011. In all cases, gold rallied and a fresh wave of investors started buying vintage U.S. gold coins. As is often the case, many of these new buyers started building type sets—and prices climbed substantially. In each of these rallies, pre-1933 U.S. gold coin prices soared in a very short amount of time.

Currently, we’re in a rather quiet vintage U.S. gold market. With gold trading in a narrow channel, many pre-1933 U.S. gold coins have corrected to very reasonable levels. Just as bullion premiums have settled close to historic lows, many vintage coins have drifted into “bargain” territory. We’ve been carefully tracking this sector all along – and now we feel it’s time to pounce.

 

Spotlight US Gold Type Set

 

Your Cost Today: Less Than Half of Peak Values!

Not only are MS63 gold sets trading at historic lows, but they’re available at less than half of their peak values! This is not a typo—you can save 50-70% compared to what these coins were commanding in recent years.

In addition, the sets we’re offering today are being offered for less than current NGC’s Price Guide values. All three gold type sets (Liberty, Indian and the complete set) are currently available for 10-15% below NGC’s stated valuations. Your acquisition cost isn’t just attractive compared to historic values; it’s quite low relative to today’s trading range.

Current NGC Price GuideIt’s also worth noting that this set has a significant “spread” to MS64. Today, an 11-piece MS63 gold type set averages around $11,500, but this same set in MS64 jumps all the way to $18,111! As our late Co-Founder, Glen O. Kirsch always said, “buy the highest grade you can afford before the next major price jump.” Given this massive jump in price, MS63 gold type sets represent an outstanding value. Not only are the MS63 coins more reasonably priced (and therefore more accessible to numismatists), but they have ample “room to run.”

Right now, these MS63 type sets have impressive price appeal. In addition, they also have excellent numismatic appeal. Each group is an instant U.S. gold collection—and in high grade no less. These vintage U.S. gold coins are usually seen in circulated grades, like Very Fine and Extremely Fine. In numerical terms, they often grade between 20-40. If a classic American gold coin survives in Uncirculated, it’s usually because it was stashed in a large canvas bag and vaulted in storage for decades. These coins are technically Mint State (i.e., show no signs of wear) but are usually heavily abraded and graded MS61-MS62.

Numismatic coins cannot be awarded the MS63 grade level without displaying such strong aesthetic and technical quality. Today’s MS63 gold pieces exhibit ample luster, clean surfaces and have excellent eye appeal. At arm’s length, these specimens have the look of Gem Uncirculated pieces—but do not carry the hefty price tag. This is the best way to own superbly-preserved U.S. gold without the higher cost of an MS64.
