Collectors always love to own what other people can't have.
That's why quality, rarity, and price are the most important factors to consider before you buy any Rare Coin.
Other factors are also important like eye appeal, artistic merit, historical significance, and precise state
Most CoinsDestroyed During the U.S. Government Recall
Today, all U.S. Mint Gold Coins struck from 1795 through 1933 are highly collectible, many are quite rare. When first minted,
they were circulated to the public as the "money of the day," the overwhelming majority were worn out and melted down within a
few years. The majority ofsurviving U.S. Gold Coins were melted down when the U.S. Government recalled Gold from its citizens in 1933 during
the Great Depression.
Millions of Coins Melted in the 1980's
Literally millions of the surviving U.S. Mint Gold Coins were melted down in the 1980's when Gold soared to $850 an ounce.
That's why U.S. Gold Coins minted before 1933, trade at significant premiums today. Likewise, the circulating Silver
coinage completely disappeared in the 1980's when Silver soared to the unprecedented high of $50/oz. The entire coin collecting
hobby was changed forever during that decade. After the meltdowns, Rare Coins enjoyed a historic revival and have proven
to be extremely profitable from the period of 1970 through the present. Today, the rarest and best preserved coins command top
prices from Rare Coin collectors and investors.
Most Modern Coins Are Not Rare
Many novice collectors mistakenly think of modern American Eagles as "Rare" Coins.
Yet, American Eagles in some sizes are minted by the millions each year and most are carefully
preserved. They typically trade at small premiums over their Gold content and are extremely unlikely to be collectibles for
over 25 years. However, there are important exceptions where small mintages of under 50,000 have shown significant gains.
High Demand, Fixed Supply for Truly Rare Coins
Today, the base of U.S. Rare Coin collectors is large and growing, creating high demand on the strictly fixed, limited
supply of U.S. Mint Coins. During years when demand for Gold is high or the Rare Coin Market is hot, demand outpaces the fixed
and limited supply of Pre-1933 coins. That's why Rare Coin prices can be so highly volatile to the upside with 300% to 500%
increases common in recent bull markets.
Headed for a Bull Market
The Rare Coin Market has been hot in the last few years and moving into what we believe is another bull market cycle. At any
point in time, certain coins may be performing very well while other areas may be quiet. That's why it's important to talk to
Rare Coin Specialists to find out the current status. Some collectors will prefer to focus on the hottest areas of the
market while investors may be "value seekers" looking for the best quality coins that are the most undervalued at the moment.
