2005 W Submitted Photo

Do you have a photo of a coin and want to display it? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to also find out the price and history for you.

I recent asked if people wanted to display there Gold Buffaloes because sadly I couldn't get one. I have been buying Morgan dollars to fill in my coin addiction.

One nice visitor, Eric Ewanco, to this little blog showed off two pics of a ounce gold American dollar. Here it is.2005 Gold coin2005 gold coinNotice that the same coin can take two different pictures. I often try to take a picture from above the coin and get a reflection of myself or the camera on the coin. These are great pictures I reduced for this blog just click on the picture for the original large pictures.

The best way I've heard of taking proof pictures involve using a stand and two light sources and an angled resting place. Very complicated.

Here's the stats for this coin....
Type: 50 dollars-1 Oz Fine Gold
Year: 2005W
Mintage: 35,246
Metal: 91.67% gold, 3% silver, 5.33% copper
Value: $2,250.00 in Proof ($450.00 increase as of 2012 values)

I own gold coins in the 1/10 ounce variety but the are small and no comparison to these beautiful examples.

Thanks alot Man can I have your email so I can send you a picture of it Boy you helped me out alot,,The jewerly store offered me $350.00 for it so I new it must be at least worth that

$350 hmmmm are you sure this is a 1 ounce coin. I understand jewelers take about ten percent off the gold value so gold is at $644 you should be offered at least $580 from jewelers or gold traders.

If it says Canada and doesn't have denomination then it is a medal of some type worth only it's weight in gold.

I don't think it is Canadian. Does it say BRITT REGINA then it probably a half sovereign worth about $200.00.

I have an 1886 Morgan P where the reverse side is flipped 180 degrees. The eagles head would be where the year is stamped on the front. Is this rare?

1886 Morgan P where the reverse side is flipped 180 degrees.

It would be about $1,000.00 in high grade. It should be verified in hand.
