The lingering concern over the national debt ceiling as well as soft economic numbers helped support the price of gold coins last week.
The United States announced last week that the national gross domestic product only increased 1.3% in the second quarter of the year, compared to analyst expectations of 1.8%. Meanwhile, the numbers for the first quarter of 2011 were revised downward to less than ½ of a percent.
The continuing debate over the national debt ceiling also pushed down the dollar and supported the price of gold coin prices. Congress faces an August 2 deadline to raise the debt ceiling or face downgrades on the nation’s sovereign debt.
