    Hi,

    I'm wondering if there is a guide for current prices of coins such as lunars, kooks etc..?

    I've tried finding current prices from retailers and forums, but if they don't currently have the years I'm looking for it's hard to determine price.

    Any help would be great,

    Thanks.

    Thanks, that's about what I was thinking as well. It's just a bit harder to price a coin that doesn't come up as often.

    Coins are base on Spot price & Markets determine by such prices.
    Each coins are differents with the year and mintages, some coins will command more even with the same mintages.
    If it doesn't sell today, doesn't means The Premium / Values are gone.

    For example , everyone want good price for their coins.
    1. Party A Seller want to sell urgently so he will sell at any price.
    2. Party B Buyer want to buy for his collections , so he will buy at any price.
    3. Some doesn't do their homeworks , and sell at any prices.

    Hope this will broaden up many that doesn't know.

    Dealers will only pay at spot for all precious metals.

    I absolutely agree. I'm trying to determine some sell prices at the moment. I'm holding some rarer year coins, but finding it hard to find a current price range. I've been absent from this scene for a few years and I believe prices would have varied some what. Basing on spot isn't as effective for rare year coins, so I'm trying to find more recent sales.

    Some dealer prices I've seen are high for what I remember.

    From what I understand, it was more the 1 oz coins like lunars that had a production based on demand, hence the "rare" values. But the same year 2 oz and above were unlimited runs?

    Interesting thread. I've been absent for a few years, so the current spot seems relatively high at the moment in respect to when I bought in. I'm not in a rush to sell, so I can definitely hold off. Would be good to be able to determine a current inventory value though.

    As an example, I have some 1 oz lunar rabbits and 2009 kooks. From memory, they were desirable and lower mint years. I also have 2oz 2009 kooks, but I don't think the 2oz are considered as rare, therefore price wouldn't be just double the 1oz coin value?

    Some Lunars are dead , not moving at all. ie Rabbits ( as more rabbits have Milk spot / Tarnished.)
    Years to come , Good Rabbits will hold it's premium as many are damaged by Milk spot / Tarnished.
    2008 & 2009 kooks will hold it's premium.

    also depending on the conditions of the coins. Milk spot / Tarnished.

    The lesser problems coins are The Koala & Kooks as I know.

    Ok, interesting and a valid point. They seem like good examples but I'd have to check them more closely before selling. Thanks for the information.

    The rabbits I have don't seem to be tarnished or have any milk spots. They have literally been in capsules in a box in storage for years. Can't say the same for my Britannias, which were never in capsules. Although I never really thought they were very well minted to begin with.
