Do You Own Any Gold Commemorative Arts Medals?
I'm curious if any forumites collect the gold Commemorative Arts Medals from the 1980-1984 years? These seem to be relatively unloved bullion. It seems that many may have been melted over the years. The early versions do not state their metallic composition (e.g. one ounce gold). It seems that John Steinbeck and Helen Hayes are the low mintage issues.
Do you own any?
For those on the buy / sell side, when these come into coin shops, are they often in original mint packaging and in nice condition...or have they been treated like bullion over the years?
He who knows he has enough is rich.
