Columbus artist Ric Stewart combines his love of art and motorcycles, most notably through sculpture. We visit his workshop at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center where he demonstrates for us the “lost-wax” method of bronze casting.
Gold Prices Spike; Temporary Gain For Coin Dealer
An ounce of gold hit the $600 mark at the end of last week. And Monday it finished at $597.60 on the New York Commodities Exchange. Tom Squires is the coin department manager at Allen’s in Westerville. Squires said the spike in gold prices is effecting his current inventory in a positive way.
“In a sense it’s given a slightly inflated value to what we have that we didn’t sell yet. But it’s a very short lived bonus,” Squires said.
Squires said that’s because the price of gold could drop – or he says it could level out at around $600 an ounce. Currently in London an ounce of gold started out at $602.25. That’s up more than nine dollars from late Monday.
