I got an ad in my email today from APMEX about how low the Gold spot price was and that silver was also down, bla bla bla. Typical marketing email but it got me thinking about something. I have more interest in coins from a Numismatic standpoint, however there's nothing wrong with having something with dual purpose. So as the prices of precious metals ebb and flow, does the numismatic value follow the same trends? Let's forget about key dates, and other "special" coins for a moment. What about ASE's, Maple Leaf's, things like that. I wouldn't expect the value to change for small changes in spot but what about over a year or two when the price may have moved a dollar or more per Troy oz of silver. (I'm aware that doesn't happen consistently, just an example) Thoughts? Just sort of curious and had a hard time searching for what I wanted to ask.
