Hold off on gold price explosion; $2,000 won't come this year, here's why
Kitco News

"Gold’s long-term price target is still $2,000, but that price level will not be seen this year, owing to several technical and fundamental hurdles that need to be breached first, this according to Lejun James Shao, a columnist for Seeking Alpha. In a recent Seeking Alpha article, Shao said that gold needs to continue to rally into $1,800 an ounce before it completes its breakout move."

United States Circulating Coin Values
This table does not reflect U.S. Mint production costs, but the pure base metal value that composes the coin. Calculations are based on coin weight, metal composition, and base metal prices. The "Metal % of Face Value" column represents the percentage of metal that comprises the denomination's purchasing power. A coin that is over 100% in this category has more base metal value than purchasing power.

Table based on December 20, 2019 close base metal prices:
Copper $2.7827/lb up 0.0023 Zinc $1.0533/lb down 0.0078 Nickel $6.5060/lb up 0.0001

* The U.S. Mint issued both compositions in 1982; they can be differentiated by weight (3.11 g copper, 2.5 g zinc). The 1943 steel cent is not included in the table above. Also, a tin alloy is used in one cent pieces from 1864 until 1962, but that value isn't significant enough to calculate.

United States Circulated Silver Coin Values - Updated Every Minute
These coins were in standard circulation until silver was removed from all coinage in 1965 and 1970 (40% silver half-dollars). I recognize that the silver Eisenhower dollar was issued as a collectible only, but I'm still categorizing it with this group. This table illustrates how far the metal value has progressed compared to the denomination's purchasing power after the debasement.

** The U.S. Mint issued two compositions of the nickel in 1942. The copper-nickel composition used today and the 35% silver composition listed here.
*** The 40% silver version of the Eisenhower dollar was issued as a collectible only, they are generally not found in circulation. The best way to distinguish the two versions is by weight. The copper-nickel version weighs 22.68 grams, the silver Ike dollar weighs 24.59 grams.
