Certified Rare Coins Posted by James Randolph on December 08, 2009
December 8, 2009 – Certified rare coins have become heavily utilized portfolio additions throughout our current recession, and most investors who purchase these coins do so as a long-term wealth preservation play. Different types of gold are useful depending on your specific investment goals, and you can get an abundant supply of free information on gold investing here.
A certified rare coin is a pre-1933 US-minted coin minted that has been deemed to be in “Uncirculated Mint State” condition. The professional Coin Grading Service (www.PCGS.com) and the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (www.NGCCoin.com) employ expert numismatists who examine and grade each coin that comes in. Coins that are worthy of certification are given a unique serial number and bar code, and the coins are individually sealed in a clear, air-tight, tamper-proof holder.
Although many investors have shied away from making a gold investment in the past, financial analysts recommend a 20-30% hedge in physical gold. By protecting your remaining assets with gold, you could offset losses in your portfolio if our traditional investments continue to underperform. Gold bullion is widely used by investors as a short-term (1-14 months) hedge against inflation, but you should look to certified rare coins if you would like to store your wealth in gold longer than 14 months.
If you have concerns about our leaders’ ability to rescue our economy before the dollar collapses, you are not alone. Millions of investors have empowered themselves and gained financial independence by purchasing physical gold and storing that gold privately.
