    A price change at the Mint has not happened this week, but a downward price change will most likely happen next Wednesday.

    The Mint has indeed lowered the prices for gold coins today, with prices corresponding to the 1250 to 1300 price bracket.

    As you might know, however, we are near the lower end of the bracket, at 1255, so if another drop happens, it is possible that prices at the Mint may be lowered even more.

    Needless to say, during the last 2 to 3 weeks gold suffered a big price hit--perhaps one of the worst of the year.

    Well, we are not at 1300 yet, but pretty close.

    Tomorrow is Wednesday, so there is almost no chance for a price increase at the Mint tomorrow, but if gold rises above 1300 in the next few days, a price increase is likely to happen one week from tomorrow.

    So the Centennial Walker will probably get an increase before it is released.

    What purchases would you recommend this week?

    I am still going with the "100th Anniversary of the National Park Service 2016 $5 Gold Uncirculated Coin" (item 16CB). The current mintage of this coin is 3246 (a very low number for this series), and sales did not climb significantly from the price drop (unlike year 2012, when weekly sales climbed into the hundreds, at this time of the year). I believe this coin is a good buy, even for those not collecting the series. I plan to buy 3 more of them this weekend, bringing my count of the coin to 6.

    As for the Centennial Walker, I will probably still buy those, but only for the purpose of selling them to a dealer immediately afterwards.

    Consider waiting till after the election. The price is locked in until wednesday. If we see a big run up in price of gold you can still pull the trigger before the mint changes price. If the price of gold dips then you have a bit of wiggle room to watch further in case there is more downside before the year is out. Just a thought...

    That's a good idea, and if I had been more cautious in my first purchase, I could have saved $12 per coin. As I recall, that purchase was made on 9/26, when spot gold was at $1337.50, or $12.50 above the middle price of the Mint price bracket at that time. It turns out that the price cushion of $12.50 was not enough to protect the price of that purchase from the price fall that happened in the following weeks.

    Today, spot gold is at $1304, which gives us a price cushion of $29 above $1275, the middle price of the current Mint price bracket. So I feel a lot better about today's Mint prices than I did on the day of my first purchase.

    For me, it is a choice between having the purchase done during the weekend, when I will have more free time available, or Tuesday night, when the uncertainty of spot gold will be lower due to knowing at least some of the election results.

    I'll think about it...

    Looks like gold is taking some headwind from the election news, and there may be more coming after the election.

    We can keep in mind, however, that ordering from the Mint should be motivated by collector value more than bullion value, and the price watching is more defensive than offensive in purpose.

    There is still a good chance that today's price drop will not lower spot gold enough to move to a lower Mint price bracket.

    Depending on the average price of spot gold in the past week, there is a possibility for a price increase at the Mint today.

    However, as spot gold spent some time below 1300, the price increase is not very likely to happen this week.

    In order for this to happen, spot gold would need to reclaim the 1300 marker, which it did last night, but dropped below it again today.

    This week's gold price was quite a head fake, dropping from 1325 to 1225 in less than a week!

    Now we are looking at the possibility of the Mint moving to a lower price bracket soon...

    Against all odds, prices at the Mint have moved down to the 1200 to 1250 price bracket today.

    Just means, push down the "money", cuz markets are close to "adjustment".
    Shiny must not show stability, just collateral infection.

    Two months ago, I did not think I would be saying this, but we may actually be looking forward to a price drop to the 1150
    At this point, I am not even hoping for another price drop at the Mint, as it would imply that spot gold reaches a dangerously low level, endangering the future trend of gold prices.

    Let's hope for a rebound soon...

    I used to feel this way, but have developed some mental callouses from getting kicked around by the PM market for five straight years. This is a long term play for me. Let the trend of break. I'll buy the crap out of PMs. If someone wants to put it on sale that's alright with me.

    I am holding my historically repetitive theory position.
    Everything will be devalued, by inflation.
    Metals will keep pace with inflation, aside from spike or two.
    Legality of metal usage will be challenged, there was this before wasn't there...?
    Going in poor with metal and coming out the other side poor without, but healthy.
    Want richness from holdings, jump the USS Titanic, it is going down.
    Of course, I am ready for awakening of masses and peaceful revolution towards self sustainment, not endless self indulgence.
    Whoops, pardon last line, I had just taken a hit off of my bathsalt, meth, oxy, pipeneedlebonginhaler thingy.
    History will prevail, sadly enough.
    Just drive around country side, or suburbia. The decay is becoming horrific.

    The chopped portion of my first statement was an artifact of the forum saving unfinished replies for later.

    Luckily, the incomplete statement still made sense.

    Unluckily, however, the price drop to the 1150 to 1200 bracket at the Mint is one step closer to reality. It probably won't happen today, but very likely one week from today.

    Unless spot gold rises past 1200 tomorrow, we are most likely to see a price drop at the Mint to the 1150 to 1200 bracket tomorrow afternoon.

    The Mint is offering free Budget Shipping through 12/11 on orders of $100 or more, which may outweigh considerations of further price drops from the Mint.

    Got the Centennial Standing Liberty gold coin and the Reagan set because it had the special silver eagle.
    Nice packaging on the gold & free shipping.

    The Reagan set looks like a juicy deal...and the silver eagle is the 30th anniversary version.

    Appealing, but I think gold will drop more. Then again, I thought Hillary was going to win.

    Couldn't wait for the price to drop more, Christmas coming up. I am usually late but not this time.

    I really like the Reagan set. Well packaged.

    In the last week, gold was starting to look good enough for a move up into the next bracket by Wednesday, but looking at this morning's prices, we are now more likely to stay in the current bracket.

    With today's price rebound for gold, we may see a price adjustment upward tomorrow by the Mint.
