In comparing to the last coin show, gold is down $27.30 or 2.2% from the Friday before the July show to the Friday before the August show.
Gold's price dramatically changed throughout the coin show years.
Gold's 2017 peak value occurred in September. Early in 2018 gold began an upward trend, which has seesawed up and down for most of the year.
Let's look at the New York closing values for gold on the last trading day before the August 2018 coin show:
The New York market closed at $1211.20 on the Friday before the August show, while the London market closed at $1214.40.
Take a look at this chart of the gold prices for August 2017 through August 2018.
Each of these values reflect the prices on the Friday just prior to the monthly coin shows (London Market values).
Back when the Greater Atlanta Coin Show started in 1988, gold's price was $441.70 per troy ounce. Through the years, gold bullion prices climbed and fell, falling in 1993 to a low point of $326.10 per ounce. Climbing again, gold's values trended upward for a handful of years but fell to a new low in 1999 of $252.80.
In 2011, gold's prices reached new record highs.
The charts have been updated to include through the Friday of the most recent show.
This chart shows the gold prices from the London PM Fix numbers on the Friday just prior to each coin show through all the coin show years, 1988-to-date.
The numbers for the gold prices in the charts above were pulled from Kitco's historical gold data using London Fix values. Click on historical gold information to review Kitco's much more detailed data and charts.
