1. Diversification

Investment professionals recommend ten to fifteen percent (and sometimes higher) of an investment portfolio be devoted to tangible assets in order to maintain diversification‚ reduce overall risk and create a hedge against inflation. Rare coin investing‚ and owning hard assets‚ should be one of the foundational elements of any portfolio.  See “Lombra” report.


There are no records of sudden price drops, however the small adjustments in the market are tiny compared to the stock market.  That is why we suggest buying the best possible coins.


The government isn’t striking any more of these coins… Supply and demand drives markets and there are more and more people, collectors and now investors entering the market.  With the influx of new investors and the limited supply of coins, it only makes sense to add Rarity to your portfolio.

4.  History

Owning Rare Coins is owning a piece of history and a piece of art.

5.  Liquidity

Rare U.S. coins have become the most liquid of collectibles due to independent grading by the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).  We recommend holding rarity for 2-5 years, that is why when building your portfolio, we even diversify it.  We like to balance the portfolio with a combination of rarity and Pre-33 Gold.  Pre-33 Gold is liquid within 10 minutes.


At any time, the government can confiscate modern gold again like they did in 1933.  However, it’s the law that they CAN NOT confiscate coins prior to 1933.

7.  Privacy

NO REPORTING of the purchase or sale of a coin.  A true private investment.

8.  Portability

Coins are liquid worldwide… Meaning a small amount of high quality coins can add up to a fortune and you can tuck it into your pocket and travel.

9.  Profitability

It is well documented that rare U.S. coins have generated strong long-term increases of value. Rare coins only get rarer and‚ consequently‚ more valuable.  Please take a look at the “Notable Collectors” tab to see how a $100,000 investment yielded a sale of more that $20,000,000 (John Jay Pitman) and an investment of $500,000 yielded a sale of over $45,000,000 (Eliasberg) decades later.

10.  Grading

Always buy coins graded from PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service) or NGC (Numismatic Guarantee Corporation).  We also recommend CAC certified coins and we are an authorized representative of CAC.  However there are great rarities not certified by CAC and it’s something to consider as well.
