Ocean County Club holding annual hot dog night July 17th

The Ocean County Club is having its annual "hot dog" night July 17th. We begin at 6 p.m. - hot dogs for everyone plus soda, coffee and whatever any member brings out as a donation. Fortunately, we use a local firehouse in Point Pleasant Beach for our meetings and the facilities are great for what we do. We will still have a junior meeting at 6:45 and the regular meeting at 7:30. This is just another fun type activity for clubs to use to improve their moral, attendance and membership.

Do your American Gold Eagle Bullion Coins Have Numismatic Value?

The American gold eagle is one of the most popular gold bullion coins available in the market today. Through 2013, over 20 million ounces of American gold eagles have been minted, putting these coins on par with South African gold krugerrands and Canadian gold maple leaf coins as the highest minted modern gold bullion coins. As we typically see in the coin market, collectors have identified American gold eagles that were produced in lower quantities, which has caused the value of these coins to rise above and beyond the gold bullion value; resulting in bullion coins selling at numismatic values. In today's article, Atlanta Gold & Coin Buyers is going to take a look at the better date American gold eagle coins (by denomination) and identify for you coins that will bring you more than just your typical gold eagle premiums.

The Baseball and Kennedy Hot Coins

My dad, Robert Matitia, bought for me the new Silver Proof baseball coin from the U.S. Mint, and they just came in the mail last week. It sure is a hot item and looks great! When we bought it from the mint it costs about $51, and now you can sell it for at least $150 since it sold out right away. It tripled in price! But I am going to save mine, and not sell it.
