Post-1986 Certified Gold, Silver Coins Could See Drop in Demand, Analysts Say

Both gold and silver posted impressive gains on the first day of trading after the Labor Day weekend, with gold finishing up $13 at $1416 per ounce and silver rising $0.75 per ounce to finish with a spot price of $24.28. Gold made a 1 percent gain today and its value has increased by 7.5 percent in the last month but is still down 16 percent from one year ago. Silver is down 22 percent in the last 365 days but jumped by more than 20 percent in August and made even more progress with a 3 percent gain today.
