Before you Buy Gold, Consider Rare Mint State Gold Coins: The #1 Performer.
(1970-2011 Rare Coin Index Results May Help You Buy Gold Wisely)
Tracking the last 41 years, a highly respected Mint State Rare Gold Coin Index identifies that rare mint state gold coins outperformed a generic gold coin index, a 3000 Coin Index as a whole, gold bullion and a return of 5% a year. Based on a number of factors, including the results found in the respected 3000 Coin Index, we recommend rare mint state gold coins.
While individual rare coin performance may vary, in my opinion, the results indicate that better condition grades, rarity and a market maker strategy are all important factors in rare coin performance over the long-term. Other experts I respect concur. Furthermore, the coin indices we reviewed do not swap coins in and out like major stock indices do.
When one studies the performance of collections and sets of coins put together over generations by famous collectors like Eliasberg, Pittman and Bareford, the research is further validated. Set building provided diversification and set premiums for some sets during bull market conditions. Articles on these famous collectors and their strategies are available free from your account representative. Please call for a free copy.
