Pre-1933 US Gold Coins


Collecting Rare Coins

Inside This Report

Many investors today are looking to diversify their portfolios with precious metals and hard assets. For more than 2,500 years, gold and silver have been recognized as lasting mediums of exchange. Over time, every paper currency ever printed has become worthless. When there is a stock market crash, a currency crisis, or rising inflation creating financial risks, investors turn to precious metals for long-term safety and protection.

Clearly, hard assets have endured the test of time. They've proven to be the only permanent and lasting form of wealth. One way to diversify your portfolio is through the acquisition of United States rare coins minted before 1933.


United States Rare Coins Offer Proven Advantages:

  • Not Subject to Confiscation - Most modern issue bullion coins like Krugerrands and Canadian Maple Leafs can be confiscated under US laws still on the books. Pre-1933 US gold coins are exempt from confiscation as “collector coins.”
  • Rare Coins are Private, Non-Reportable - Sales of US rare coins are non-reportable. However, the sale of modern bullion coins over 25 ounces requires dealers to file a 1099-B with the IRS reporting your profits.
  • Less Speculative - Pre-1933 gold coins of Better Dates and Rare Dates are less volatile on a day to day basis than gold bullion coins. While the price of gold and silver change hourly 24/7 on world markets, the price of Pre-1933 gold coins are not subject to downward price pressure of gold short sellers and seldom have hour by hour fluctuations.
  • Rare Coins Outperform Bullion - Long-term, key areas of the US rare coin market have outperformed bullion alone. Many non-gold/silver coins have no price relationship to precious metals at all.
  • Pre-1933 Rare Coins give you leverage in a hot gold market - Bull markets in precious metals have shown to dramatically drive up demand and prices for older US rare gold coins providing coin collectors with a "double-profit" opportunity.

Growing Demand for Rare Coins

We feel there are many advantages to owning historic, Pre-1933 Gold Coins over ordinary, modern gold bullion coins like American Gold Eagle Coins.

High Demand & Low Supplies

Most raw modern gold coins are worth exactly their weight in gold, plus a small premium for minting, shipping, and handling. The value of a gold bar, an American Gold Eagle Coin, a Canadian Gold Maple Leaf, or a Krugerrand goes up and down exactly with the melt value of its raw gold content alone. These modern bullion coins are not rare coins with an established collector base proven to maintain premiums.

On the other hand, US gold coins minted before 1933 have a fixed and limited supply with an underlying and rapidly growing base of collectors. They have traded in a free market of collectors. For instance, the 1907 High Relief Saints commanded high premiums over their gold content since the first day they were minted.

While demand is growing among new rare coin collectors worldwide, the supply of classic old rare coins to fill that demand is fixed and even diminishing as many coins are put away into permanent collections, museums, or hoarded away in private vaults for generations.

In Summary

We believe that a carefully chosen collection of US rare coins along with gold and silver bullion offers you privacy from government intrusion, safety in a crisis, and a proven way to add leverage to your gold portfolio. Best of all, many high quality US rare coins in the current bull market are trading well below previous market highs. In our opinion, US rare coins offer lower downside risks today and higher upside potential than just acquiring precious metals alone.
