Ebay is deleting Coin section on Ebay
These are 11 reviews I'm going to loose on Dec-2-2009, if you have any coin reviews you need to click&paste them and throw them into a guide. Ebay changes without asking what the ebayer wants, they would already know the answer I guess. Either two things will happen coin area is gone or renamed or changed. I will relist these into reviews again once I find out whats going on.
BiCentennial 1976 Eisenhower US Coin
To my knowledge only three mint marks belong to this coin. 1976P (Philadelphia) 115,000,000+ coins minted & 1976D (Denver) 103,000,000+ coins minted, 1976S (San Francisco) unknown on number of coins minted, I do know these 1976S coins were struck in silver/ copper clad. 1976 dollar coin was minted to celebrate the bicentennial, reverse has Liberty Bell with Moon symbol (designed by Dennis Williams)which ultimately got added to half dollar and quarters for years 1975 & 1976. Remember all coins were struck in either copper/ nickel or silver/ copper composition.
75.0% copper, 25.0% nickle, reeded edge, 38.1 diameter, 22.68g, 1 US dollar value.
This same coin had a clip design and necklace design while the two tone bicentennial goes for $50 easily due to Eisenhower head on this dollar coin was struck in gold with harp surface coat to last the test of time. Also remember any 1976D silver copper coins were struck in error and are rare to find very hot item to find (these coins were suppose to be struck in copper nickel clad). Classification on these bicentennials have 1776-1976 dates are separated with a dot.
Good luck on your coin hunting, try to find that 1976D error coin. I hear they go for $300+. This year coin is usually sold out anyways, I remember four years ago they were easily attainable, but not so good today.
1904 Morgan Silver US Dollar
Morgan Silver Dollar was minted from 1878 to 1904 then again in 1921. If you can find 1895 Proof coin with the mint mark removed (as coins got restriked the years either got changed or removed on some coin years) this coin is worth $12,000 (EF-40) to $20,000 (Proof-63).
1904 coins as follows minted; 1904 no mark 2,700,000+ coins minted ($12 VF-20 to $1,600 Proof-63). 1904-O mark 3,700,000+ coins minted ($9 VF-20 to $28 MS-63). 1904-S mark 2,300,000+ coins minted ($35 VF-20 to $1,600+ MS-63).
Designed by George T. Morgan, 90% Silver, 10% copper, reeded edge, 2.4 thickness. Why the Morgan actually stopped minting in 1904, silver bullion reserve was reduced to rubble after massive amounts on coin was minted. During this time the US picked silver as the national trade dollar coin. History in 1918 'Pittman Act' was a ruin of coins being that over 250 million coins were called back and milted down to replace the silver bullion reserve. 1921 resumed back to the Morgan which replaced the Peace Dollar. It wasn't till 1950 when Carson City Mint found hordes of Morgan's dollars simply stashed away which caused GSA uncirculated Morgans' to appear, collectors worldwide swooped them up.
To actually have a complete collection of Morgan's from 1878 to 1921 is rare, some collectors barely have the complete set, only 5 sets are in existence today. Imagine the cost or value to one set. That's 117 versions of the Morgan coin including 1904 coins (3 versions). Good luck on your Morgan hunting!
2002 West Point Silver US Dollar
2002 WPCSD (West Point Commemorative Silver Dollar) are rare to find only 1,000,000 coins were ever minted celebrating 200th anniversary of West Point in New York. This military academy is the oldest in our nation as far back as the Revolutionary War during George Washington days. If you can find this coin you're going to spend $20 or more. 500,000 uncirculated silver coins minted and 500,000 Proof coins minted (MS-70), that's it, no re-issue was preserved. Imagine this coin of it's time authorized in 1994 by Congress.
These coins were struck at the site were silver bullion was stored 'The Fort Knox of Silver' was a nick for a long time before 1980 when 20,000,000,000 worth of gold began storage (that's right 20 billion).
Coin designed by James Ferell, 'W' mintmark, 90% silver 10% alloy. I own only one coin, I want to purchase one more for a pair. I love this coin, you get to buy history and coin collection at the same time. Get you a coin if you see one cheaper than $20.
1987 American Silver Eagle US Dollar Coin
Silver coin markets are drying up as we speak due to high demand silver price. Coins that once flourished are becoming rare. This 1987 American Silver Eagle .999 silver coin is currently unavailable as to PL 99-61 law and silver bullion blanks are not being allocated. Coin owners in a flurry market have taken coins like this one to coin dealers or jewel shops for meltdown price. Buying this coin today has jumped from $21 to $24 and rise slightly by weekly rates.
Proof coin or even MS-60's down to G-4 coins in any condition are widely rare enough. Amazing if you could get your hands on MS-70. This coin has even marked upward to $50 easily. Not bad for a coin with only $1 legal tender.
1987 American Silver Eagle, why the rush, why the glory? This coin was designed by two artists, front side of coin by Adolph A. Weinman and the back by John Mercanti. Actual coin material 99.3% silver, .07 copper at 31.1 grams weight with 2.98 thickness. Only twenty three years were minted 1986 and 2008, only three mint marks are current 'P' Philadelphia, 'S' San Francisco and 'W' West Point. These coins are not circulated thus the price of each coin. You either purchased proof pieces or proof box sets.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR
1995W year are rare to find due to minted 30,000+ availability, some coins have reached thousands of dollars for one proof coin. 1987 coins sell for around $21 to $25 only. Only 11,000,000+ Proof MS-70 exist, meanwhile lesser coins uncirculated 175,000,000+ minted. I currently have three 1987 coins and plan to keep those coins, they will rise to $100 in ten years when rarity increases. As long as silver rises in price (cash-in) silver coins will sky-rocket.
2007 Sacagawea US Dollar Coin
Sacagawea dollar was first minted in 2000 (over 700,000,000 (P) minted over 500,000,000 (D) minted the 1st year). 2001 would take a nose dive on minting (over 60,000,000 (P) & 70,000,000 (D)) & 2002 to 2008 only minted (30,000,000 (P) & 34,000,000 (D), I don't know if 2009 was minted this year. Coin was designed by Thomas D. Rogers, coin has copper base with manganese brass clad. This coin was minted to replace Susan B's, smooth edge finish, although its clad finish tends to rub off after time. I have no idea when (S) minted, there is no figures. San Frisco minted this coin as well, I believe these (S) coins were never in circulation only in proof sets. Never seen one yet, I keep searching for one.
88.5% copper, 6% zinc, 3.5% mamganese, 2% nickle. 0.26 troy ounce weight, 2mm thickness, design date 2000.
The last mintage on Susan B's forced this coin to mint. 1981 was the last time Susan B's minted, the coin coalition recognized the depletion and forced $1 Coin Act in 1997 (do we drop the $1 coin or keep it). Its estimated over 1 billion Sacagawea $1 coins are in circulation and another 1/4 million (250,000,000) uncirculated in reserve. Uncirculated rolls, proof sets and mint sets available although the last circulation on these coin sets haven't released since 2001.
ACCESSORIES ON SACAGAWEA
2000 Sacagawea Denver (D) roll uncirculated (20 coins) $60
2000 Sacagawea (P)(D)(S) set uncirculated $35
2000 Sacagawea (P)(D) set uncirculated $6
Some rolls come 20, 25 uncirculated in clear or paper rolls. For now this is the US $1, no idea what the $1 coin will come up next.
1794 Flowing Hair US Dollar Coin
If you have a coin like this one, find a dealer, this coin was minted once with only 1,700+ coins. Very rare and hard to find. Starting price for this coin $1,700+ up to MS-60 value $170,000+ to the right buyer. Only two years were minted 1794 & 1795, 94's can bring over $100,000 compared to 95's a top price of $25,000. You can see the difference hugely. 94's had a huge eagle while 95's had a smaller eagle.
As you know uncirculated coins, coin marks, coin struck condition all change collectors buying demand. AG-3 (low end) condition to PF-65 highest condition. Generally PF-60 is demand, but PF-63 and PF-65 are always hard to find. PF(proof), as you know this coin had less than 90% silver .8924 silver & .1076 copper. 39mm diameter, one dollar is edged on coin.
Just so you know I looked online and saw both 1794 & 1795 coin era auction for $200,000 due to rare coin availability. I don't own this coin just saw another at a coin shop today local. Very interesting to see this coin again. Robert Scot designed this coin. Both coins were MS-65 condition. Never got to see PF-60 yet in last ten years searching around Tampa and Orlando Florida.
1873 Trade Silver US Dollar
1873 Trade Dollar was originally traded as $5, throughout a one year low on silver bullion forced this $5 up and down during the late 1870's. Other coins of this nature had chop marks which declined but also lowered the value of this coin. In the end the treasury department would ask for them back as most were lost or damaged. This legal tender was redeemed by the Treasury for a long six month period. So if you find one in VG-8 condition expect $150 or more. Proof-63 coin can reach $2,800 easily.
I got a chance to touch one and see it's features, my brother got lucky and found one at a flea market and paid only $75, his coin is F-12 worth $200. This coin was struck in 420 silver grain, usually US coins had 412 silver grain. 1873 * 1873CC * 1873S, are the only markings this coin comes in that I have seen in coin shops.
I rated 5***** based on rare coin, only 300,000 coins had "In God We Trust" on reverse side of this specific coin. 1873S is rarely found period. This coin was a limited mintage from the Treasury on this year.
1934 PEACE DOLLAR
Denver Coins Minted (((D Mint 1,569,000 +)))
Philadelphia Coins Minted (((P Mint 950,000 +)))
San Francisco Coins Minted (((S Mint 1,000,000 +)))
Medalist Anthony de Francisci designed the Peace Dollar originated in 1921 to 1935. These coins were minted from Silver, I believe in 1964 the Denver mint tried to revive the Peace Dollar (((1964-D))) but only minted 300,000 + coins before abandoning the coin once more, all those coins were believed to have been melted never circulated. Most of these coins were melted during the early years and most likely this last year due to high Silver prices. So this coin can range from $15 to $45 easily. This coin was actually a treaty coin between the US and Germany to end WWI. If you ever look at this coin front side V is used in Trust (interesting).
26.73g *** 90% Silver *** 10% Copper *** Reeded Edge *** 0.77344 Silver *** 1921-1928 & 1934-1935 *** 38.1mm
VALUE OF COIN AT COIN DEALERS
When you count each metal value today on metal market, I checked this morning July 28, 2009= $0.01 for the copper content + $10.80 for the silver content= $10.81 each, better go cash them in. I have a friend who has over 300 silver Peace Dollars from an inheritance. 300 X $10= $3000.00 +. Not bad during a terrible economy. I own three 1921, 1922, 1934, I guess that's $30.
US Mint Presidential $1 Coin Campaign
The Presidential Dollar coins, I own the first coin which came out in 2007 to start this amazing collection, George Washington $1 released on February 15, 2007. You need to hurry due to a certain allotment of each coin. $1 Coin Act was signed in 2005 inscribing portraits of past presidents. The U.S. Mint depicts the bust of the president (name, term office and number order) and the other flip side of the coin has Statue of Liberty. "E Pluribus Unum" and In God We Trust" was inscribed on the edge of the coin so that each image on each side of coin could become enlarged greater (bigger size than normal). Coin's year and mint mark are also inscribed on the edge of the coin.
I also own Andrew Jackson released on August 14, 2008 and I own this reviews Martin Van Buren's coin released on Nov. 13, 2008. These two coins I got from my bank branch, I even got these in a roll pack which brings a value already to $65 to $80. Coins are sold separately but when you can get a roll coin wrapper the value is higher. Look for these coins in 2009; William Henry Harrison (9th President), John Tyler (10th President), James K. Polk (11th President) and Zachary Taylor (12th President). Future coins will release during these months for collectors= February, May, August, and November.
2008 s Martin Van Buren Coin
Philadelphia Mint popped out 51,500,000 coins
Denver mint popped out 50,950,000 coins.
100 million coins in existent. Martin Van Buren was President an American Citizen and governor of New York, a Senator, also Secretary of State and before his office as president Vice President. Van Buren served from 1837 to 1841. This coin was not struck in its original bold as we see it now; I believe the coin had a second impression before this last image was selected.
Looking for your coins
4 coins are struck each year=
2007= George Washington *** John Adams *** Thomas Jefferson *** James Madison
2008= James Monroe *** John Quincy Adams *** Andrew Jackson *** Martin Van Buren
2009= William Henry Harrison *** John Tyler *** James K. Polk *** Zachary Taylor
1997 American Silver Eagle US Dollar Coin
1997 AMERICAN SILVER EAGLE PRICES
Uncirculated 1997 ($21.20), Proof 1997P (129.00), Certified MS-69 Uncirculated 1997 ($41.50), Certified Proof-69 1997 (139.50), Uncirculated 20 coin roll 1997 ($565.75).
American Silver Eagle minted from 1986 to 2008, a complete Proof set would sell for (23 coins) $1,469.00. 1997 coins were designed by Adolph A. Weinman (Obverse), John Mercanti (Reverse). 99.9% Ag (Silver). Only 4,275,000+ coins minted uncirculated 1997 & 425,000+ coins minted Proof 1997 were minted of this year. Proof coins were very low and that's why the price jumps. 1995W mint mark coin is extremely rare to find and cost is around $1,600 to $3,000+.
Due to current prices on silver bullion around $14.00 the highest ever over the last 30 years, this coin is actually used in Retirement Account Investments. Try purchasing box sets or single piece sets, keep them as the price should rise over the next two years and top is my forecast on silver. Its true silver was high last month compared to this month (10% drop), I estimate silver to reach $30 or more in the coming year.
I own two 1997 ASE, always remember before purchasing coins (gold or silver), bullion coins involve risk when bullion markets become volatile which could rise or drop exceedingly. Knowing your reserve or convenience of buying should be your own potential recommendation.
2008 John Quincy Adams US Dollar
May 15th was the first release on the 2008 John Quincy Adams US Dollar. Second release coin in 2008, 6th coin of the Presidential Dollar Coins, designed by Don Everhart. Over 100,000,000 coins minted by two mints (P)- Philadelphia 55,000,000+ coins minted, and (D) Denver 55,000,000 coins minted. I heard (S) San Francisco was minted but I have not seen one yet, maybe those are in reserve uncirculated Proof-63's.
88.5% Copper / 6% Zinc / 3.5% Manganese & 2& Nickel. 26.5mm diameter, 2.0mm thickness, 8.1 grams.
OTHER PRESIDENTIAL DOLLARS FOR 2008 INCLUDED WITH JOHN QUINCY ADAMS
Andrew Jackson, James Monroe and Martin Van Buren.
Coin has edged lettering "In God We trust", & "E Pluribus Unum." Start collecting these coins for a set. My brother went to coin dealer and had a case made for his, in total 38 coins will release with the last one in 2016 Gerald R. Ford. I hope I gave some information for you on this coin for now. I own 2007 George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, 2008 James more and I'm looking for others currently. My brother already has the coins for 2009, I forget what they are (I think John Tyler or William Henry Harrison). Presidential Dollars are holding steady at $1.09 but go to your local bank branch and ask for them, sometimes the bank is out and sometimes they get a new supply. 2007's are going for $3 to $4 already, so collection is important during the issue year.
I looked online; 25 coin rolls are minted with a paper roll making them authentic going for $35 (uncirculated) or you can purchase a 250 coin bag for $300+ (circulated). Place to look United States Mint online, just type this inside browser or Google it.
