Make a reminder note and visit the next Greater Atlanta Coin Show on Sunday, August 8, 2021 in the Joe Mack Wilson ballroom to join the fun and excitement on the bourse.
The July 2021 Greater Atlanta Coin Show enjoyed a bourse filled with dealers and their numismatic displays while many guests visited to buy, sell, trade or browse among the many treasures in the showcases.
The weather provided a nice day for the show. At least the sunshine was nice when there wasn't a brief thunderstorm in the area.
We appreciate all of the visitors to the show. Some were recognizable, but there were quite a few new faces in the crowd. All of you are welcome, and we are glad you came.
We thank our security for helping the dealers each month and keeping an eye out for potential issues.
We also thank the hotel and its staff for providing a venue for the show, its dealers and its guests.
Of course, we appreciate all of our dealers that join us each month. Some come from nearby while others travel a few hours to provide displays and offer their coins, currency and other collectibles.
This month, our July show occurred just after the summer FUN (Florida United Numismatists) show. Several of our dealers traveled back from the FUN show's Orlando location to join the Greater Atlanta Coin Show. A big thank you goes to the road warriors for coming back.
Take a look at this FUN token from their shows this year. Begun in 1955, this year represents the FUN's 66th anniversary.
For grins, their token played with a recognizable phrase and noted "Get Your Kicks at FUN 66." They even used the road sign outline around their "66."
Congratulations to them on their 66th year and on their interesting token for this milestone.
The July show saw many new investors in gold and silver. Many were curious as to the best purchases to make in the bullion market and which forms were better overall.
Of course the answer to those questions depends on many things from how much the person wants to invest, their interests, their secure storage availability, their patience, and the list can go longer.
But, one tried and true investment example is the US Mint's American Eagle Silver coins.
American Eagle Silver Bullion
American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins
Affordability. Credibility. Beauty.
With more than 500 million troy ounces sold since 1986, American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins are the world’s leading choice of investment grade silver bullion coins. American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins are an easy and affordable way to add silver to your portfolio.
Each coin’s weight and fineness of one troy ounce of .999 fine silver is guaranteed by the United States Government. Investors can buy them with confidence, knowing the coins contain their stated amount of silver. In addition, long-term savers can include American Eagles in their Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs).
The new type 2 American Eagle Silver one ounce coin was available on the bourse.
This new coin is a modification of the original American Eagle Silver coin as described in the US Mint's silver bullion web page:
The obverse design is based on Adolph A. Weinman’s 1916 “Walking Liberty” half dollar, widely considered one of the most beautiful American coins ever minted. Thanks to modern design technology, the updated obverse is a closer reflection of Weinman’s original vision and includes the addition of his traditional artists mark.
The new reverse design features an eagle as it approaches a landing, carrying an oak branch, as it to add to a nest. The reverse designer was Artistic Infusion Program Designer, Emily Damstra.
Obverse Inscriptions: LIBERTY; IN GOD WE TRUST; YEAR; Artist’s Initials
Reverse Inscriptions: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; E PLURIBUS UNUM; 1 OZ. FINE SILVER; ONE DOLLAR
Obverse Designer - Adolph A. Weinman
Reverse Sculptor - Michael Gaudioso, Medallic Artist
In the meantime, collect these bullion silver coins one at a time, in roll quantities or even in a monster box.
The American Eagle Silver coins remain beautiful and timeless.
Notice in the last image a new addition to the one ounce coins this year.
The US Mint has altered the reeded edge design to include an anti-counterfeit element.
In recent years counterfeit bullion eagles have become more of a problem. The US Mint is working to deter the efforts of those nefarious counterfeiters. We wish them success.
