Coin dealers say they had great bourse sales

Both candidates for president of the American Numismatic Association had tables on the bourse floor of the Florida United Numismatists Convention Jan. 10-13 in Orlando.

Both joined the vast majority of dealers who said they had good commercial results.

“It has exceeded our expectation,” said Tiburon, Calif., dealer Don Kagin.

His results helped break a slack few months in the numismatic business generally.

“The market has been in the doldrums for months,” he said.

In Orlando, it was very different. Collectors were buying.

“We have been nonstop busy, coins, currency, exonumia. They want to buy coins again. They are here, and they want to buy,” Kagin said.

Col. Steven Ellsworth (ret.) of Nashville, Tenn., said, “It was pretty good. Yesterday was real good. Today (Saturday) was steady.”

His specialty is early copper coinage.

“The really nice pieces sell really well. The lower-grade common stuff nobody wants. Everything is moving to slabs,” he explained.

Ancients dealer James Beach of Owosso, Mich., said, “I say this show started really well. It was very busy opening day.”

He added, “We are continuing to see great traffic. I had a great show.”

Beach noted the conflict between the FUN show dates and the New York International Numismatic Convention going on simultaneously.

“I had better collector sales here versus New York,” he said.

Patchogue, N.Y., dealer Harry Miller of Miller’s Mint said, “I’ve been swamped the whole show,” hardly looking up from a box of coins brought to his table by another attendee who was seated across from him.

Error dealer Fred Weinberg of Encino, Calif., described the show as “one of the most well-attended FUN shows I’ve seen in years.

“Friday business was unexpected. Hearing from other dealers, everything was very, very active,” he said.

One dealer was so fired up about business at FUN that he came up behind me and slapped me on the shoulder to get my attention while I was speaking to another.

“’Good show. Put it down’ [in my notebook] Salisbury, Md., dealer Gus Tiso enthusiastically exclaimed while I was talking to Bob Campbell of All About Coins in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Campbell, whose table always has something from off the beaten path, was displaying the second-largest gold nugget ever found in the state of Arizona.

He valued the 28.22 ounce monster at $ 140,000.

It had been found in the mid-1970s at the top of a pile of tailings at an old mine by a Wisconsin geologist.

As for his sales results, Campbell said, “We did real good.”

Gary Adkins, who is current ANA president, said, “I think it was a fabulous show, very busy. The crowds were great.”

He explained that he remained on the bourse until 5:30 p.m. on Friday night and there were still lots of people there.

“If you come to do business, I think you’ll have a great show,” he said of the event overall.

Dealer opinion was not unanimous.

Jack and Sondra Beymer of Santa Rosa, Calif., were in the negative camp.

Jack said the show was “sleepier than usual.”

Sondra emphasized the point by saying “surprisingly sleepy.”

Part of the reason, Jack explained, was that potential buyers were asking for things he did not bring along to the show.

What did they want?

“Lower grades, circulated Buffaloes and Indian cents. The kind of thing I didn’t bring,” he replied.

“They are putting sets together for their grandchildren,” he said.

This, though, is good news in its way.

Even though this potential demand didn’t help him at the FUN show, it is good to hear that collectors are still building for the future by building sets for their grandchildren.

5 Top Weekly TSX Stocks: NextSource Up on Permit Approval

The S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) opened 87.97 points higher on Friday (January 18) at 15,299.19, driven by consistent gains in the energy sector, keeping the TSX on track for its fourth consecutive week of gains.

Oil prices were up 1.1 percent following an OPEC report indicating a significant drop in production last month, quelling worries of an ongoing global glut.

The positive gains in the energy sector were bolstered by steady momentum in the healthcare and financial sectors. Canada’s largest index sat at 15,296.94 at midday.

Last week’s top TSX stocks include one mine development company, an energy producer, two diversified developers and one gold company. The five TSX-listed mining stocks that saw the biggest gains are as follows:

Here’s a look at those companies and the factors that moved their share prices last week.

NextSource Materials

Mine development company NextSource Materials is currently working to develop its solely owned Molo graphite project in Madagascar. The Canadian company is also looking to advance the Green Giant vanadium project, located within the same property claim.

Early in the week, NextSource announced that it had received conditional approval for the environmental permit needed to move ahead at Molo.

Company shares were up 16.67 percent, to C$ 0.105.

First Quantum Minerals

First Quantum is a diversified miner primarily focused on copper production. The company which began exploring in 1996, operates seven mines around the world. In addition to copper, First Quantum also produces gold and nickel.

On Tuesday (January 15), First Quantum released its Q4 2018 and full-year results. Copper production was up 6 percent for the year, and sales increased 3 percent as well.

Company shares grew 15.82 percent last week, to C$ 12.96.

Husky Energy

Alberta-based Husky Energy is one of the province’s largest energy producers. The company has a number of onshore projects and resources in Western Canada and the US, as well as a variety of offshore projects in the Asia Pacific and Atlantic regions.

Husky announced on Thursday (January 17), the offer it made to acquire MEG Energy (TSX:MEG) had officially expired without an extension being granted. Shares of Husky climbed 12.38 percent, trading at C$ 16.79.

Gran Colombia Gold

Mid-tier gold miner Gran Colombia is currently focused on developing its Segovia and Marmato operations located in Colombia. According to the company it is the largest underground gold and silver producer in the country.

Gran Colombia also released its Q4 2018 results mid-week, highlighting a 25 percent year-over-year production increase.

Gran Colombia stock was up 11.08 percent last week, to C$ 3.51.

Northern Dynasty Minerals

Northern Dynasty is a diversified developer currently advancing the Alaska-based Pebble copper, gold, molybdenum and silver resource through its solely owned Pebble Limited Partnership.

On Tuesday (January 15), Northern Dynasty reported the filing of a preliminary short form base shelf prospectus with the securities commissions in each of the provinces of Canada, excluding Quebec.

Shares of Northern Dynasty were up 10.47 percent, to C$ 0.95.

Coin dealers say they had great bourse sales

Both candidates for president of the American Numismatic Association had tables on the bourse floor of the Florida United Numismatists Convention Jan. 10-13 in Orlando.

Both joined the vast majority of dealers who said they had good commercial results.

“It has exceeded our expectation,” said Tiburon, Calif., dealer Don Kagin.

His results helped break a slack few months in the numismatic business generally.

“The market has been in the doldrums for months,” he said.

In Orlando, it was very different. Collectors were buying.

“We have been nonstop busy, coins, currency, exonumia. They want to buy coins again. They are here, and they want to buy,” Kagin said.

Col. Steven Ellsworth (ret.) of Nashville, Tenn., said, “It was pretty good. Yesterday was real good. Today (Saturday) was steady.”

His specialty is early copper coinage.

“The really nice pieces sell really well. The lower-grade common stuff nobody wants. Everything is moving to slabs,” he explained.

Ancients dealer James Beach of Owosso, Mich., said, “I say this show started really well. It was very busy opening day.”

He added, “We are continuing to see great traffic. I had a great show.”

Beach noted the conflict between the FUN show dates and the New York International Numismatic Convention going on simultaneously.

“I had better collector sales here versus New York,” he said.

Patchogue, N.Y., dealer Harry Miller of Miller’s Mint said, “I’ve been swamped the whole show,” hardly looking up from a box of coins brought to his table by another attendee who was seated across from him.

Error dealer Fred Weinberg of Encino, Calif., described the show as “one of the most well-attended FUN shows I’ve seen in years.

“Friday business was unexpected. Hearing from other dealers, everything was very, very active,” he said.

One dealer was so fired up about business at FUN that he came up behind me and slapped me on the shoulder to get my attention while I was speaking to another.

“’Good show. Put it down’ [in my notebook] Salisbury, Md., dealer Gus Tiso enthusiastically exclaimed while I was talking to Bob Campbell of All About Coins in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Campbell, whose table always has something from off the beaten path, was displaying the second-largest gold nugget ever found in the state of Arizona.

He valued the 28.22 ounce monster at $ 140,000.

It had been found in the mid-1970s at the top of a pile of tailings at an old mine by a Wisconsin geologist.

As for his sales results, Campbell said, “We did real good.”

Gary Adkins, who is current ANA president, said, “I think it was a fabulous show, very busy. The crowds were great.”

He explained that he remained on the bourse until 5:30 p.m. on Friday night and there were still lots of people there.

“If you come to do business, I think you’ll have a great show,” he said of the event overall.

Dealer opinion was not unanimous.

Jack and Sondra Beymer of Santa Rosa, Calif., were in the negative camp.

Jack said the show was “sleepier than usual.”

Sondra emphasized the point by saying “surprisingly sleepy.”

Part of the reason, Jack explained, was that potential buyers were asking for things he did not bring along to the show.

What did they want?

“Lower grades, circulated Buffaloes and Indian cents. The kind of thing I didn’t bring,” he replied.

“They are putting sets together for their grandchildren,” he said.

This, though, is good news in its way.

Even though this potential demand didn’t help him at the FUN show, it is good to hear that collectors are still building for the future by building sets for their grandchildren.

Error dealer Fred Weinberg of Encino, Calif., described the show as “one of the most well-attended FUN shows I’ve seen in years.

“Friday business was unexpected. Hearing from other dealers, everything was very, very active,” he said.

One dealer was so fired up about business at FUN that he came up behind me and slapped me on the shoulder to get my attention while I was speaking to another.

“’Good show. Put it down’ [in my notebook] Salisbury, Md., dealer Gus Tiso enthusiastically exclaimed while I was talking to Bob Campbell of All About Coins in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Campbell, whose table always has something from off the beaten path, was displaying the second-largest gold nugget ever found in the state of Arizona.

He valued the 28.22 ounce monster at $ 140,000.

It had been found in the mid-1970s at the top of a pile of tailings at an old mine by a Wisconsin geologist.

As for his sales results, Campbell said, “We did real good.”

Gary Adkins, who is current ANA president, said, “I think it was a fabulous show, very busy. The crowds were great.”

He explained that he remained on the bourse until 5:30 p.m. on Friday night and there were still lots of people there.

“If you come to do business, I think you’ll have a great show,” he said of the event overall.

Dealer opinion was not unanimous.

Jack and Sondra Beymer of Santa Rosa, Calif., were in the negative camp.

Jack said the show was “sleepier than usual.”

Sondra emphasized the point by saying “surprisingly sleepy.”

Part of the reason, Jack explained, was that potential buyers were asking for things he did not bring along to the show.

What did they want?

“Lower grades, circulated Buffaloes and Indian cents. The kind of thing I didn’t bring,” he replied.

“They are putting sets together for their grandchildren,” he said.

This, though, is good news in its way.

Even though this potential demand didn’t help him at the FUN show, it is good to hear that collectors are still building for the future by building sets for their grandchildren.

Coin dealers say they had great bourse sales

Both candidates for president of the American Numismatic Association had tables on the bourse floor of the Florida United Numismatists Convention Jan. 10-13 in Orlando.

Both joined the vast majority of dealers who said they had good commercial results.

“It has exceeded our expectation,” said Tiburon, Calif., dealer Don Kagin.

His results helped break a slack few months in the numismatic business generally.

“The market has been in the doldrums for months,” he said.

In Orlando, it was very different. Collectors were buying.

“We have been nonstop busy, coins, currency, exonumia. They want to buy coins again. They are here, and they want to buy,” Kagin said.

Col. Steven Ellsworth (ret.) of Nashville, Tenn., said, “It was pretty good. Yesterday was real good. Today (Saturday) was steady.”

His specialty is early copper coinage.

“The really nice pieces sell really well. The lower-grade common stuff nobody wants. Everything is moving to slabs,” he explained.

Ancients dealer James Beach of Owosso, Mich., said, “I say this show started really well. It was very busy opening day.”

He added, “We are continuing to see great traffic. I had a great show.”

Beach noted the conflict between the FUN show dates and the New York International Numismatic Convention going on simultaneously.

“I had better collector sales here versus New York,” he said.
