American Gold Eagle Coins First Strike?

Postby MetalsZone » 06 August 2016

Are these coins overrated? and just clever marketing.

What is First Strike anyway, some info would be nice.

Buying American Eagles is a waste of time, especially slabbed first strikes PCGS. Looks like those coin grading companies really trying to fool us. They slab regular American eagles as first strikes and charge you double the amount of money you would normally pay for a regular American Eagle Gold bullion coin. Tell me what is the difference between a slabbed version and a regular strike MS? Nothing, as far as I can see.

The detail on the first strike are more enhanced, I prefer over reverse proof. MS 70 coins do appreciate in value with first strike labelling, but on the other hand, they do not appreciate in value when the market is flooded with them. First Stirke is a gimmick in my view.

PCGS, in my opinion, is the base value of knowledge in coin collecting. I only collect their graded coins.
