Supply is tight and demand is high for certified Morgans. This can only mean one thing... higher prices!

Rarcoa, Inc has jump-started the wholesale market for certified Morgan dollars with a large order for generic (common-date) Morgan dollars dated pre-1921 [link to CDN pricing] in grades MS63-67. The orders are for coins certified by PCGS or NGC and significantly raise levels in the grades they are seeking. In MS67, for example, the Willowbrook, IL firm is offering $625, sight-unseen, for coins that were previously bid at $485, a 29% increase. MS65's have jumped 25% since July 1 from $100 to $125, but the intangible factor is liquidity. One dealer reported that, "at $100 I couldn't give them away, while at $125 I can't keep them in stock." Based on our observations here at CDN, it would appear we may see many other coins jump in value now that there is increased attention on our hobby. As an example of this, Jack H. Beymer Rare Coins, of Santa Rosa, CA, has been raising his buy prices for circulated type coins across the board to build type sets for customers.
