Vintage Gold Near Bullion Premiums

Coin collecting can be a very profitable venture when done the right way, and numismatics make a great alternative asset for those looking to diversify their portfolio.

Investors like pre-1933 gold coins for their track record of outperforming generic gold bullion in times of uncertainty. This was especially true in choppy markets like 2009 and 2013.

What is the difference between bullion and a numismatic coin?

Unlike bullion, numismatic coins are not an investment in the typical sense. Although used as a store of wealth, their value is not always associated with the metal content spot price. In fact, numismatic coins are generally worth more than their bullion counterparts.

There are many ways to collect coins. The simplest way is to save coins found in circulation, and this is how many of the greatest collectors got their start.

However, coinage with gold or silver content is extremely unlikely to be found in circulation, and collectors interested in coins composed of precious metals are unlikely to find anything of significant value in circulation. Owning numismatic coins with precious metal content is a savvy way to turn coin collecting from a hobby to an investment strategy. 

Between standard bullion and numismatics, we also have what is referred to as Junk Gold or Junk Silver.

Junk Silver refers to pre-1965 dimes, quarters and half-dollars which still have a 90% silver content, which makes their worth higher than their face value. As an asset, they’re easily divisible, have widespread recognition, and boast great value for both investment and survival purposes. Today, a $100 face value bag of pre-1965 coins will net about 71.5 ounces of pure silver when melted.

Junk Gold are circulated pre-1933 gold coins which are similar in age and type to numismatic coins, but they do not have as much potential for additional value above their melt price due to their common nature and visible wear and tear from circulation.

They’re a great way to own gold with a fascinating history attached at a lower cost.

Today, we're able to offer a $50 Face Value set that comes with a $20 Liberty Head Double Eagle, $20 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle, and a $10 Liberty Eagle in LP (Low Premium) grade. Each set is available at a very favorable premium!
