Coins

  • Coins are highly liquid world-wide
  • You’re the boss – you choose – invest what you like
  • Positive performance for coins in the past does not dictate future performance, profits could be far better
  • Different country’s coins appeal varies with time and demand – diversify
  • Coins are in a tamper-proof holder with authenticity verified by a third party grading firm – the company’s name appears on the holder (PCGS or NGC)
  • Grading is a subjective art, not a science and differences of opinion might exist, however, we require agreements between in-house and one of 2 premier 3rd party grading services (PCGS & NGS) reflecting as accurately as possible the actual market value
  • 3rd party grading services have been in effect for about 20 years and some current graded coins are certain to increase in the future – the population number of these coins along with original mintage numbers help investors understand their rarity
  • Although supply and demand have much to do with pricing, many other factors are involved – attempts are made to reflect the actual market but pricing can lag behind from time to time with the ever daunting task of information gathering
  • Investors who already own precious metals are the best clients to consider purchasing rare European gold coins, because they are not for everyone – much time is required to build one of these portfolios because of the need for a tailor-made strategy and with only a few coins available at a time it is important to work with one of our qualified investment advisors
