Kitco News -- Should You Stay Long Gold? Don’t Mind The Rallying Stock Market — Analysts

"Can gold prices see more gains next week? Analysts are optimistic about gold, which is looking strong despite the rallying stock market. At the time of writing, February Comex gold futures were trading at $1,556.80, down 0.21% on the week, while the U.S. stock market continued to hit new highs, with S&P 500, the Dow, and the Nasdaq all rallying. "It is very curious to me that gold is rocking and rolling despite the fact that we have a massive risk-on move for the last few days," TD Securities head of global strategy Bart Melek told Kitco News on Friday."

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

Description Face Value Metal Value Metal % of Face Value
Lincoln Copper Cent1909-1982 Cent (95% copper) *
Jefferson Nickel1946-2014 Nickel
Lincoln Zinc Cent1982-2014 Cent (97.5% zinc) *
Roosevelt Dime1965-2014 Dime
Washington Quarter1965-2014 Quarter
Kennedy Half Dollar1971-2014 Half Dollar
Ike Dollar1971-1978 Eisenhower Dollar
Susan B. Anthony Dollar1979-1981, 1999 SBA Dollar
Sacajawea Dollar2000-2014 Sacagawea Dollar
Presidential Dollar2007-2014 Presidential Dollar

* 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.

Table based on January 24, 2020 7:11 AM PST silver prices:
Silver $17.98/oz up 0.18

** 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.
