Investing in gold to preserve your wealth and diversify your portfolio has never been easier and made more sense. Take control of your financial future now. Buy gold as an addition to your investment portfolio.
Rare gold coins, gold bullion and silver is a solid and wise investment for any investor as gold prices continue to climb. Every year, around 2,500 tons of gold is mined from the Earth. But the global demand for gold far outweighs the supply, driving up your investment even more. You could own gold in the form of ETF’s, commodity options or mining shares. You can also own gold bars or modern minted and widely available bullion.
Possession of rare, certified gold coins is unique since the rarity helps preserve the value your investment. And after all, isn’t that the point?
There are basically two reasons people buy gold. The easiest and most obvious answer is to collect rare and valuable coins for fun and profit. This is called “numismatics” – the study or collection of currency, including coins, tokens, paper money, and related objects. “Numismatists” are more interested in the rarity and beauty (as well as value) of the currency they collect but also view it as an investment.

Gold In Your 401k and IRA
One thing many people aren’t aware of is that the IRS allows individuals to hold precious metals within their IRA and 401k retirement portfolios. We can help set this up for you with no taxes or penalties.
After 2008, imagine how your retirement plan might have looked if you had a percentage of it invested in gold. Diversifying your portfolio by investing in gold decreases your potential risk. It could even dilute your potential rewards. But if you are interested in at least preserving your wealth, you need to have a position in gold which is still yet expected to go much higher.
Physical metal, over time, has always offered a hedge against stock market volatility. If you purchase gold or silver within your existing IRA you will not take possession of the metal. It is stored at a depository in your name. Once you reach the age of 59½ you may then take delivery without penalty. Go here for more information on retirement planning with gold ownership.
Gold Investing To Protect Your Wealth
But the other reason to buy gold is wealth preservation. Whether to provide a safe haven for your assets in tumultuous economic times, or simply to have sensible choice to diversify your portfolio.
Historically, rare coins perform best when considered a long term investment. And long term investors often want to buy gold because of the safety of the investment and simply to have a more diverse portfolio.
Think about it – unlike many equity investments, when you buy gold, you can do so with peace of mind, knowing that the value of gold has never been ZERO.
In fact, the value of gold has tripled against the dollar since 2001. For the past eight years, gold has outperformed the NASDAQ, Dow and the S&P 500. Associate Dean, Research and Graduate Studies at Pennsylvania State University in State College, PA. found that “the two top-performing investments over the past 25 years were stocks, at 14.6% per year, and high-quality, rare U.S. gold coins, at 14.3% per year.”
So investors aren’t as concerned as much with the beauty of the particular types of gold they buy as they are with the safety, value and growth potential of gold investing. In other words, you don’t have to be an expert collector to invest in gold.
When you invest in gold, you are not just putting your faith in the value of gold itself. Part of your portfolio should be in investment grade, collectible gold coins that are in good condition and relatively scarce. That adds tremendously to the value of your gold investment; almost like having a built-in insurance policy.
These coins are certified by either the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) or the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). This means you can have greater confidence in your investment. These coins are easily liquidated when you are ready to close your position at any of the thousands of gold dealers across the country. And of course, we will buy back what we sell to you, as well.
After determining your investment goals, time frame and amount you want to invest, we can set up a customized portfolio for you. You do not have to be an expert in numismatics or investing. And you can always sell your gold back to us at any time.
We use only PCGS, and NGC certified, ‘sight-seen’ graded coins and we have access to all gold and silver, both bullion and numismatic. Bullion gold is a good place to a gold investing portfolio. But adding rare, “numismatic” coins to the mix should be part of your portfolio as well.
Gold and silver numismatic coins have a “collectible” status which means you can buy and sell them without having to report it on a 1099-B, required by the IRS. This is also a valued aspect of owning rare coins, providing the investor with another increasingly rare and valuable asset in today’s society – privacy.
With gold, you have personal and private control over your investment. While “private wealth” seems a thing of the past, gold gives you that privacy.
In other words, neither an IRS 1099 nor a social security number are required to own investment grade rare gold coins. No other tangible asset offers 100% privacy and portability except gems or diamonds which are not nearly as liquid as US rare gold coins.
We will help determine what percentage of your portfolio should be in gold based on your age, tolerance, years before or after retirement, etc.
