Happy New Year to all the U.S. mint’s collectors ! To start the new year off right for themselves the worlds largest coin dealer has announced a price increase for some of their most popular products. Starting off with the proof silver eagle offered at the new and improved price of $64.50 an increase of 15%. With past years of proof silver eagles trading wholesale at $35.00 no one was lining up at the FUN show to buy this product . All Mint products for 2020 will average a price increase of about 15%. Older mint and proof sets are at an all time low prices, now would make a good time to purchase them as they make a great gift and a lot of them can be purchased at ten dollars or less. All American Coin has a large inventory of these sets and we will be happy to help you with your collection.
The 2020 FUN show was held in Orlando Jan. 9-12 and was a huge success with increased public attendance and over 1500 dealers attending. The average expenses for a dealer with a table is around $2000 for the five day show. Most dealers skip Sunday and use it for a travel day to cut costs. So Sunday was a washout with less than 1/3 of the dealers remaining. With expenses so high, dealers tend to bring their most valuable coins and leave the lower cost coins at home. It has been said that if you can’t find a certain rare coin at the show or the Heritage coin auction you probably won’t ever find it. The coin market for expensive coins remains weak and with generic gold coins selling just above melt some of the larger coin dealers did not have the show they hoped for. All American Coin had a successful show as we tried to provide lower cost collector coins and silver bullion that the other dealers couldn’t supply because of travel restrictions and high expenses. Other than the weak coin market the show was well run and a very secure place to do business. The only complaint heard was from the dealers describing the inadequate coffee and danish breakfast as a “bloodsport” . Surely this could be improved upon.
Fort Myers coin show held Saturday Jan 18 was a huge success thanks mostly to the hard work of coin club president Jay Chamberlain and the Fort Myers coin club volunteers. It is a lot more work than you think and most take it for granted. There is set up Friday night at 9:30 and tear down after the show just to go with all the other duties of putting on a show all at no cost to the customers. Unlike a gun show where customers are charged admission and parking fees to attend an over crowded show. It was well attended by collectors , investors and dealers. Several out of town dealers showed up and were successful in finding new coins to purchase . One local customer was able to sell his newly purchased 2019 reverse proof silver eagle for a thousand dollar profit and left the show a happy man. All American Coin had a successful show as many collectors were happy with the large inventory we displayed. All dealers enjoyed a free lunch provided by a local dealer and most all vowed to return for the next show. The coin market itself still seems weak but most collectors were thrilled with the opportunity to add to their collections at bargain prices for collectables and low cost bullion coins. The next and last Fort Myers coin show of the season is Saturday March 14, make your plans to attend and I hope to see you there.
The new 2020 silver eagles will be available at the Fort Myers coin show on January 18. All American Coin will have an ample supply available for purchase at the show. This will be the first coin show that they will be available as even at the FUN show in Orlando I don’t think they will be offered to purchase. So make you plans to attend and I hope to see you there.
The 65th annual Florida United Numismatist coin show starts Thursday January 9 at 10:00 am runs till Sunday January 12 at 3:00 pm. The January coin show is the largest coin show of the year with over 1500 dealers and more than 10,000 collectors attending the four day show. Admission to the show is free however there is a ten dollar parking fee which includes a free shuttle around to the front of the building. Take the shuttle you don’t want to walk that far , and it runs every 20 minutes or so. Once inside you will need to register at the public booths to get your “HELLO ” badge to gain entry to the show. All American Coin has attended this show for over 25 years and will be at this one as well at table 708. Be sure to stop by and say hello! One word of advice is not to attend on Sunday as more than half the dealers will have already left as they use that day as a travel day to return home and the choice coins will have been picked over by then, Hope to see you there!
Don’t miss your chance to attend the Fort Myers coin show on Saturday Nov 23. It’s all good for you , free parking and no admission charge ! All American Coin will be showing it’s large selection of collector coins as well as a good selection of all other coins. The show opens to the public at 10:00 am and closes around 3:00 pm. The first of three shows for the season is always the best one and well attended. You can buy sell or trade with any of 30 dealers doing the show. One good thing to know is that most dealers at the show don’t take credit cards so bring cash , no worries though as an armed guard is always present at the show for security. Hope to see you there.
Old people have old coins , it’s why I moved to Fort Myers in the first place. I was just 22 when I moved to Fort Myers and it has worked out well for me as there are plenty of old people and old coins to trade in. I’m sure it must seem odd to the young generation ( the millennials ) that Grandma would carry a coin purse around , but in the old days you could actually buy something with coins in your daily transactions. Not so much anymore. All the millennials carry and use credit cards. But All American Coin can help you with that if you have old coins and don’t want to lug them about we buy coins at our bricks and mortar shop at 8841 College pkwy , Fort Myers FL. Fill free to stop by we are open 9-3 Monday thru Friday.
