The coin shows around the Illinois area are still going very strong and the dealers who have been able to obtain silver and gold inventory are doing a land office business.The coin dealers have raised the premiums on their coins and are still doing the same amount of business as before the drop of the metals market.
This year,2016,has shown a rise n the metals market so far and with the election and unrest with the China economy so far in January it looks like a rise in prices should be eminent.
The presidential coin series is closing and the America The Beautiful quarter program is still issuing some great artwork .
I have always been a big advocate of buying these series and have not changed my position,
It appears the presidential series will still be the only coins that will ever be minted for some obscure and unpopular presidents.These coins will remain a great teaching tool for many years of some past presidents.
