Help with the Value on these????

I acquired these from my uncle and was wondering if the value that I get when I type them in PCGS is the real value OR do they go for less usually?




Thank you for all your help all!!

    The two up top, if they are real, are worth their gold value.

    For the two below, search eBay to see what they are actually selling for. Or more specifically, what they have actually sold for recently. You must use the exact date, mint mark (P in this case) and the exact grade for a fair comparison.

    I agree with @Weiss..... If you are planning to sell, try the BST (Buy, Sell, Trade) forum here. Cheers, RickO

  • My Uncle really wasn't a huge collector (My grandpa was the guy who was really into it and got me into it) So my biggest question was just hoping to see if you guys and gals that have many years of experience could help veryify the holders look good and they are around the grade on the holder.

    The coins in the holders look legitimate. You don't often see fake gold coins in fake holders. You can also verify the coins via PCGS's certification number lookup, here. It's actually one of the reasons you certify coins in the first place:

    As for the grade on the holder: That's another reason you use reputable certification services like PCGS. Many if not most buyers and sellers trust the grades they've assigned. Even if you don't agree with the grades, for whatever reason, the majority of buyers will accept their grade as accurate and will pay accordingly.

    What Weiss said is accurate. They are decent coins. Keepers.

    I should note there are many other past and current Third Party Graders (TPGs) out there. Many of them try to emulate PCGS or NGC with a similar slab, similar label, etc.

    Only coins graded by PCGS, NGC, and to a lesser extent ANACS and ICG are considered accurate to the current coin market. Unless you know the market and coins well, it's best to stick to just PCGS or NGC. Fortunately, your two coins are graded by PCGS.

    It has been my experience that PCGS price guide suffers from inflation.

    I'd say that's an understatement. Reminds me a bit of the current APMEX "advertised" sell price for ASE's. :sunglasses: RGDS!
