Foreign Coins
To Order Call
June issue . 2009,

When the May Long Beach Coin Expo rolls around you know that summer is officially here!  The good ole' summertime is typically a slow time for the coin market.  We are expecting a boost this year, due to rising gold prices.  Last week during the coin show gold rose over $40, creating a demand for better date Saints, proof gold, and any generic gold.  Interest in the rare coin market is closely associated with the price of gold, good news for dealers!   
We noticed that serious buyers were on the bourse starting on Thursday and a  record attendance was announced.  Clients were particular about their purchases, but clearly were there to buy...not just look.  Perhaps the recession scare that has ruled most pocketbooks since last fall is starting to abate.  We are meeting collectors and clients every day that feel that this is an excellent time to buy, and we couldn't agree more. 
We have a reputation for having some of the best coins on the market.  That means not only in terms of rarity but eye-appeal also.  Wow did we bring home some winners; just for our discriminating clients!  We were able to acquire some blazing proof type (you know the look...makes you put on your sunglasses!).  You will be amazed when you see some of the prettiest Morgan Dollars to grace our site, part of a set assembled by a very astute collector. Call us if you don't see the dates you need, we may be able to acquire them for you.  It wasn't easy, but we found a few very nice Saints in affordable dates, and some lovely toned type, thrilling gems, seldom seen this nice. The coins will be on our website later this week, so please check back often.
In the meantime, don't forget our want-list service, we attend all the major shows and we carefully choose coins for our clients.  We are very particular; necessary when you are providing "cream of the crop" material. We look at thousands of coins every coin show to come home with 25 to 50 pieces that we know will make our clients happy.  
Next week, starting June 11th we will be attending the Whitman Baltimore Coin Expo, doors open to the public at 2pm Thursday and the show runs through Sunday. Please stop in and say hello to Dave, Dean and Bonnie. We will be at Booth# 857.  For the latest info check out: 
Whitman coin shows are not to be missed, we were just advised that the May show that typically resides in Atlanta, will move to Nashville next year.  Great news for all our clients in that area, we look forward to seeing you there! 

(Upcoming Shows Link) If there are any last minute “wants” please let us know. Also if there are any coins in the Stacks auction let us know and we will view and bid for you on only 5% commission. Keep an eye for the “market insight” after the show for an in depth write up on how the market is doing and where it’s going.  


Our very best to you, Dave Albanese
