These prices fluctuate with the supply and demand on the market, and to a certain extent, the increase and
decrease of silver and gold prices.
The values are driven by the interest in the collector market and also by the condition of the coins and their
characteristics of particular interest to the numismatists.
Any posted market values are only true for a short amount of time.
Of course, the coin values in each transaction are driven by what a buyer is willing to pay and what a seller is
willing to price and negotiate for the classic commemorative coins.
