“Gold Vaults to New High,” the front-page headline article in today’s issue of The Wall Street Journal quotes Patrick A. Heller, owner of Liberty Coin Service and Premier Coins & Collectibles in Lansing, Michigan, and Coin Update contributor.
When asked about how record high gold prices had affected his business, Heller was quoted that Liberty Coin Service last Friday enjoyed one of its five highest daily sales activities of the past 30 years. He also stated that some gold coin supplies are drying up and premiums are rising.
His observations have been provided in more detail within his recent precious metals commentaries for CoinUpdate.com. His past commentaries for the site can be found here.
