Hey has anyone noticed that this first "W" issue ASE coin is in high demand and the price just keeps creeping upward? Anyone?
There's only gonna be 3 of these "W" silver dollars years so I wonder if the only one that will climb in price is the 2006? Low mintage for this year, something less that 250 thousand, is that count correct? The 2007-W is down flat and I haven't checked on the 2008-W price. Anyone have a 2006-W?
This is an interesting subject that I've often thought about writing about so thanks for the opportunity. Eric Jordan, author of Modern Commemorative Coins, makes the case in his book that "W" mintmarked silver eagles are "badly unvalued". He states that "The "W" silver eagles are the keys to a 200 million and growing total population and have lower mintages than the surviving common date CC (Carson City) dollars and don't cost anything like the $200 each yet". So how do you guys feels about this line of thinking? Can coins in these quantities really be viewed as "keys"?
When the ASE series comes to an end, I think these W ASEs will command a premium over and above the premium for the generic ASE bullion coins. TC
I agree, and think that'll be a given. The "W" mm'd BU coins have a numismatic value in the series while the Bullion coins are just that, Bullion. I know that many will disagree with me, when these bullion pieces are graded by the top TPG's and people are paying big bucks for 70's over 69's. But, they're still just bullion coins, just like any other nations bullion coins. Maple leafs, kruggerands, pandas, etc.
