Let’s face it. It doesn’t matter what you put on the wish list. You seldom get what you really want for Christmas. It’s a long-standing holiday tradition that I can personally attest to. This year, I got socks. And workout shorts. To go with the new t-shirts that came as part of the package. (Apparently, my family is trying to tell me something). Try as I might, I am yet to receive the coins I crave for Christmas. Frankly, I think my relatives are intimated about the idea of buying something they know little to nothing about. I can’t blame them. But never fear. Even though the wrapping paper has been tossed out and the ornaments have come off the tree, there is still time to get yourself the coin-related gift you’ve been yearning for all year. Check out a few of these deals if you still need ideas:
Silver bells? No, Silver Eagles – Still looking to pick up a little bit of silver to celebrate the season? Take a look at this steal on the 2013 U.S. Silver Eagle. Packaged in an attractive velvet-lined box, this gem is currently going for nearly 20 percent off the normal asking price. Even if you’re not a precious metals aficionado, the 2013 edition of the American classic would be a great fit for any collection.
Catch up on ‘Parks’ Collection – It’s been running for a few years now, but there’s still plenty of time to catch up on the National Parks Quarters series. In fact, you can secure every piece that’s been issued to this point in one shot with the National Parks Quarter Club Membership. Even better: Members will also receive each new coin as it is released via mail. With attractive tri-fold displays chock-full of information on each National Park site, you can’t go wrong by signing up for this club.
Gold is the new seasonal color – What man wouldn’t love a little bit of gold to celebrate the New Year? Pick from a handful of recent mintages, from the one-ounce Buffalo coins to the time-honored American Eagle editions. Just like their silver counterparts, these coins come adorned in an easy-to-display linen jewelry box that will give you a chance to show off the Christmas present you gave to yourself – and give your family some insight about what to think about for the next holiday season!
