October 28, 2009

October 28, 2009 – Many of our nation’s cautious investors want to buy gold and silver, because the reckless monetary policy of our lawmakers has devalued our currency substantially during the last three years. Our government has printed over 40% more money since 2006, and American consumers are really starting to see the negative consequences of currency overprinting. Lost spending power, less international leverage, and the possible threat of a second bullion confiscation are all troubling factors that have influenced many savvy investors to shift funds into the certified coin market.

While short-term investors usually prefer to utilize gold and silver bullion, security-conscious investors who want to hold longer than 14 months typically do better with certified coins. Investment-grade, certified coins are the most popular long-term gold investments in the United States. The Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) inspect and certify Mint State condition coins, and these coins are then encased in a sonically sealed container with a serial number. The legendary $20 Saint Gaudens coin was minted from 1907-1933 by the US Mint, and is one of the most popular investment-grade coins available to US investors. Silver investors have gravitated to the Morgan Dollar and the Peace Dollar, which are also pre-1933 American coins. Certified coin prices could increase because of their underlying precious metal content, and their numismatic value classifies them as a government non-confiscatable investment. If our policymakers continue to flood the market with devalued dollars, gold and silver prices will most likely continue to rise. Certified coins could continue to outpace bullion investments, as they have done by a two-to-one ratio during the last year. Investors who seek privacy, security, and long-term growth should conduct their due diligence on the certified coin market.
