Generic U.S. Gold Coins

What are U.S. generic gold coins ? Generic U.S. gold coins are the most common gold coins that can be found in large quantities. U.S. double eagles and ten dollar liberty eagles are the most common coins found in this category. The gold double eagles are dated from the late 1870s to 1928 and the ten dollar eagles are dated from 1880s to 1907. When the U.S. went off the gold standard in 1933 the U.S. melted huge quantities of these coins and they are now held in Fort Knox as ingots. However the U.S. shipped large quantities of these gold coins to Europe as payments for international trade. Long held by European banks and financial institutions as a store of value these coins have been making their way back to the states since the 1950s. The premium over the melt value has decreased over the years as supply has exceeded demand and now trade at or about the melt value. A 100 year old U.S. gold coin at melt value makes for a good bargain for the collector or investor. Nothing has the feel of a real gold coin. It feels good in your hand! Old money feels good in your hand always has always will.

Come by All American Coin if you have any interest in gold coins or even if you just want to see how it feels in your hand please stop by.

A DOG STORY…

Bailey, a female Jack Russell puppy found her forever home with us thirteen years as a companion for our 10 year old son Mason. Mason has now graduated from college and has moved away and has a dog of his own now in Atlanta. So Bailey stayed with us and sleeps 20 hours a day and a recent ear infection has left her deaf. She’s had a good life, and for ten years she and the neighbors dog Duke shared yards enclosed by an invisible fence. Duke passed away a few years ago and the neighbors were good enough to let Bailey still share their yard. However the other day my wife calls me at work and says she can’t find Bailey anywhere and has been looking for an hour. I encourage her to keep looking but when I return home from work five hours later still no sighting of Bailey , so I join the search along with some other neighbors. At this point it’s getting stressful as we are thinking the worst. Getting tired of beating the bushes, I put on my thinking cap and start thinking where she could possibly be? I think she must be trapped somewhere or she would have made it home by herself. Then I think she must be trapped in our neighbors garage . Our neighbors hadn’t been at home thought out this ordeal so I call them at work and get the pass code for their garage door. Hope in hand , I open the garage door thinking Bailey will be there to greet me. However no Bailey in sight. Then remembering she’s deaf I search the garage. Much to my delight, I find her sleeping in a box along the back of the garage. She’s groggy and sweaty from being in the hot garage for seven hours but she’s happy to see me as always maybe more so this time. The people of south west Florida love their dogs and I am happy to have a happy ending to my dog story for them. So stop by All American Coin some time and I’ll listen to your dog story.

Gold at a 6 Year High | All American Coin Shop Fort Myers. Florida
Coin Collecting & Selling

Gold at a six year high!

Why? Five reasons.

1. Expectations of lower interest rates pushing bond prices down to reduce the cost of holding gold.

2. Weaker U.S. dollar as the dollar hits three month lows making gold more affordable in other currencies

3. Rising tensions between the U.S. and Iran

4. U.S. and China trade war will lead to higher prices and increasing inflation.

5. Uncertainty in financial markets will lead to volatility and investors are turning to gold as a safe haven.

Analysts are calling for gold to continue upward to the 1500-1700 range. Physical gold however is still widely available and at very favorable premiums. Be sure to stop by All American Coin to add some to your portfolio.

Atrium to be Demolished

The past home of the Atrium Post Office and All American Coin located at the corner of Winkler road and College parkway in south Fort Myers is about to be torn down. Say goodbye to the 111,000 square foot building which sits on 6.4 acres on one of Fort Myers best commercial locations. It was built as the Rafters Mall in 1979 and housed many offices, businesses, restaurants and even a night club over the years. At the end the Atrium couldn’t survive it’s age, outdated design, lack of maintenance, hurricane Irma, and an amateurish attempted renovation by an inexperienced buyer who had to be evicted. All total it was too much for the old lady to handle and she is to be torn down this summer.

Fort Myers based Fine Mark National Bank and Trust is the new owner of the property and plan to build a three story building with two out parcels to house their new headquarters. However if you are looking for All American Coin or the post office, we haven’t gone far just a block west of the old location at 8841 College Parkway. Stop by sometime and see our new digs.
