I just noticed that I missed the price drop on 4/5 and the price hike on 4/12, after reading this article:

Anyway, the price of a proof gold eagle remains the same as it was 2 weeks ago, at $1,610...

Anyway, the price of a proof gold eagle remains the same as it was 2 weeks ago, at $1,610...

EDIT: I am guessing that LBMA gold average was between $1248 - $1249 on April 5.

The only thing that I buy from the mint are America The Beautiful Silver Quarters Proof sets. Everything else I buy on eBay, APMEX, or other reaonably priced bullion dealers. The mint needs to change their pricing policy. I will buy a Palladium Eagle when they come out. I love the ZMercury dime, and the Eagle on the back is absolutely beautiful

Gold has dropped below $1250 per ounce, but not nearly long enough for the Mint to lower their prices. A proof gold eagle still costs $1610 at the Mint.

One week of prices in this range, however, would likely lead to a drop in Mint gold coin prices next Wednesday, if gold remains in this range.

As of now, a proof gold eagle costs $1,560.00 at the Mint, which means that last Wednesday, a price drop happened at the Mint.

With today's prices now returning to the $1250 to $1300 range, there is a chance that the Mint will raise their prices once more next Wednesday, if gold prices hold in this range.

Trying to catch up here, as it looks like I fell behind a week...

Those wishing to buy a gold coin this month at a lower price might have missed their chance...

Finally, a price drop happened at the Mint.

A proof gold eagle now costs $1,560.00, reflecting the recent price move to the $1200 to $1250 bracket.

If the upward move in gold is here to stay, then the next few days will be a good buying opportunity for gold coins at the Mint, before prices go up.

Actually, my coin of choice is not the 1-oz gold proof, but the 1-oz gold unc (product 17EH). Hand-picked by several experts in this forum...

07/25/17 1252 1254.4

07/24/17 1255.85 1255.55

07/21/17 1247.25 1248.55

07/20/17 1236.55 1238.7

This averages to 1248.60, which is below the 1250 mark needed for a price hike at the Mint.

This means that unless gold has a strong day tonight and tomorrow, the Mint gold prices will likely stay in the 1200 to 1250 range for the following week.

Of course, one more week of prices in the $1250 to $1300 range will trigger a price rise next Wed.

I was considering buying 17EH, in order to fulfill the spend threshold for my credit card bonus, but I have found other means to reach that threshold.

Because I have almost exceeded my gold/silver budget for the year, I am now leaning towards 17CB, a lower cost expenditure.

Even though gold slipped up above $1250 this afternoon, it did not do so in time, and it was in the $1200 to $1250 range for almost all of the previous week. If gold holds its current price, buyers of gold coins at the Mint can enjoy this discount until next Wednesday.

A gold proof eagle now costs $1,610 at the Mint, marking an upward move into the $1250 to $1300 price range for gold coins sold at the Mint.

Coincidentally, spot gold also moved over $1300 today. If it holds this level through next Wednesday, we may see another price increase.

A proof gold eagle now costs $1,677.50 at the Mint, or $17.50 above the price 2 weeks ago.

Obviously, this price increase is not due to any change in the price of gold, but a readjustment of prices at the Mint.
