Unlike investments such as diamonds or gold and silver bullion, where new production continually adds to the worlds supply, the number of U.S. rare coins is fixed. In fact, due to growing numbers of investors and loss or mishandling, the supply of rare coins actually diminishes each year.

U.S. rare coins are legal tender. There are no reporting requirements for rare coin purchase or sales, unlike stocks, bonds or bullion.

Banks may collapse, stocks crash, even governments fail, but U.S. gold and silver coins will always be valuable. You keep them in your possession as safe, secure, private protection for your future. You have total control of your investment.

Collectables such as stamps, art, gemstones, or antiques are difficult to assess and even harder to sell. An active dealer trading market ensures that U.S. rare coins are the most liquid of any collectable.

Since 1950 U.S. gold and silver coins have appreciated at an average annual rate of 21.2% per year. This is the market average. A strategically selected portfolio of U.S. rare coins can significantly outperform the market average.

In 1980, the most recent time we experienced double digit inflation, the gold market rose sharply. Rare coins responded with an increase of over 300%. By 1982 gold futures had dropped over 200%. However, rare coins remained at the higher levels owing to the fact that U.S. rare coins are a non speculative investment. You own the actual coin, not a future on the coin.

In a supply and demand market such as rare coins there are always going to be good times and bad times. Every market that goes up will eventually at some point go down. The past history of the rare coin market shows that every market peak is higher than the previous one and every market low is above the previous low. "When" to buy is as important as "what" you are buying. Most people are impressed by recent upward movement and buy because they are convinced the market will go up forever and then are disappointed when it doesn't. The winners in the U.S. rare coin market buy during market lows, closely monitor their holdings and sell after the previous high has been surpassed. If you don't have the time to watch the market you will need someone to do it for you.
