Certified Indian Head Gold Coins Posted by James Randolph on January 14, 2010
Certified Indian Head gold coins have gotten mixed reviews from collectors and investors in recent years, and there are a wide array of guesses on what will happen to certified Indian head prices in 2010. While some of the very rare, obscure years and varieties of the Indian head coin have struggled to again value despite the increasing gold spot price in each of the last eight years, investment-grade pieces like the MS64 $10 Indian Head and the MS63 $5 Indian Head have drastically outperformed the growth seen in basic gold bullion investments.
Only investors who want government non-confiscatable gold and who plan to hold their gold longer than 14 months should consider certified gold coins like the Indians, the Lady Liberty coins, and the Saint Gaudens coins. If you plan to hold short-term and a second government seizure of the bullion market does not concern you, gold bullion could be a better choice. Over the last eight years, certified Indian Head gold coins like the ones mentioned above have outperformed gold bullion investments on a per-ounce basis nearly three-to-one for investors who held the coins 14 months or more.
Specialty coins could continue to see declines or remain dormant in 2010, according to leading rare coin experts. The investment-range Indian Head coins continue to show strong potential upside, as they have throughout the current recession. Economists believe that gold will continue to move opposite the United States dollar, so if you foresee inflation or the possible collapse of our economy then you may want to think long and hard about a physical gold investment like certified Indian Head gold coins or American Eagle gold bullion coins.
