Gold price is not out of line with fair value, lots of upside potential - Charlie Morris
Kitco

"The gold market is seeing some significant selling pressure as it breaks below critical psychological support at $1,900 an ounce; however, one fund manager said that prices are still holding a healthy premium above fair value. In an interview with Kitco News, on the sidelines of the Denver Gold Forum, Charlie Morris, chief investment officer at ByteTree Asset Management, said that he currently sees gold's fair value around $1,600 an ounce. He explained that when gold prices were hovering around $1,900 an ounce, the market was trading with about a 15% premium. He added that valuations are in line with the fundamental factors driving the precious metal. There is still plenty of upside potential, he said."

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 January 26, 2021 close base metal prices:

* 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.
