After a hiatus on Proof Silver Eagles in 2009, the US Mint just released the 2010 Proof Silver Eagles in late November. Several dealers brought the beautiful eagles to the show.
Other items on the bourse included early cents in the teens and 20s in PCGS slabs, bullion silver ingots and bars, a 32-piece Olympic set and slabbed gold to name a few. Both dealers and guests kept busy with collectible numismatics along with bullion gold and silver.
Other news of the day included the announced date for the next show in January on Sunday, the 16th. But, the location has not been finalized yet. We've been very happy with the Holiday Inn Select for the last three years, but circumstances prevent us from returning for a fourth year.
We will have the new location finalized and posted on the web site (Locations & Directions) along with the twelve show dates soon, but no later than the first week in January.
The coin show's telephone number supplies a recorded message for the next show. The phone message will be updated as soon as the location details are final.
In the meantime, happy holidays to you and yours. We'll see you in the new year.
Brrrrr! Snow in December in Atlanta? Normally, snow storms occur in January, February or March - not December! A little snow and a little cold didn't hurt the show.
As for the weather, the morning temperatures started in the low to mid 40s, and by noon, the temperature was down to 32. The snow started in the morning and kept falling on and off all day.
As for guests, the morning started slow then increased throughout the morning. By midday, the bourse was packed, and the dealers were busy. Some people shopped for holiday gifts while others bought and sold silver and gold.
Some people looked for the 2010 Proof Sets and Silver Proof Sets. Those sets continue to be scarce and very few could be found at the show. It's too early to determine, but that could be an indicator of more valuable collectible sets as time goes by.
