U.S. gold and rare coin expert Doug Winter joins CoinWeek Editor Charles Morgan to discuss the current state of the rare coin market, which is in the middle of an upswing since the dip of 2014-2016.

Doug and Charles also talk about how coin shows have fallen behind the times, as well as offer a few suggestions to bring back collector enthusiasm for coin shows. The two discuss the “collection-to-auction-house” pipeline and how dealers do better by building customer relationships and placing coins into good homes (so they can have a chance later to buy them back). Doug and Charles converse about the changing tastes of collectors over the years and how it’s good for the market for coins to be cycled through a few times before settling into their “final grade”.

Finally, Charles and Doug talk about great coins, the great collectors, and what it’s like to bid against them.
