After a hiatus on Proof Silver Eagles in 2009, the US Mint just
released the 2010 Proof Silver Eagles in late November. Several
dealers brought the beautiful eagles to the show.
Other items on the bourse included early cents in the teens and 20s in
PCGS slabs, bullion silver ingots and bars, a 32-piece Olympic set
and slabbed gold to name a few. Both dealers and guests kept busy
with collectible numismatics along with bullion gold and silver.
Other news of the day included the announced date for the next show
in January on Sunday, the 16th. But, the location has not been
finalized yet. We've been very happy with the Holiday Inn Select for
the last three years, but circumstances prevent us from returning for a
dates soon, but no later than the first week in January.
The coin show's telephone number supplies a recorded message for the next show. The phone message will be
updated as soon as the location details are final.
In the meantime, happy holidays to you and yours. We'll see you in the new year.
Brrrrr! Snow in December in Atlanta? Normally, snow storms occur in January, February or
March - not December! A little snow and a little cold didn't hurt the show.
As for the weather, the morning temperatures started in the low to mid 40s, and by noon,
the temperature was down to 32. The snow started in the morning and kept falling on and
off all day.
As for guests, the morning started slow then increased throughout the morning. By midday,
the bourse was packed, and the dealers were busy. Some people shopped for holiday
gifts while others bought and sold silver and gold.
Some people looked for the 2010 Proof Sets and Silver Proof Sets. Those sets continue
to be scarce and very few could be found at the show. It's too early to determine, but that
could be an indicator of more valuable collectible sets as time goes by.
