Historical Pre-1933 Gold Coins

A diversification within a diversification

 

Historical pre-1933 gold coins offer a rich vein of opportunity for those who wish to combine the virtues of traditional gold ownership with the possibility of future premium growth as collector's items. The selections offered at USAGOLD's Collectible Gold Coins Online can still be acquired at minimal premiums over their gold value, but offer solid potential for future numismatic appreciation because of their quality and generally recognized scarcity.

- Our European and South American departments offer particularly appealing items along these lines with most items selling for premiums moderately above what you would pay for the more common items of the same era.

- Our United States department offers bulk items that trend with the gold market, but do not directly track it -- a traditionally popular area of the market among American investors. It also lists independently graded U.S. $20 gold pieces usually acquired by gold investors who wish to add a more speculative and opportunistic element to their portfolios.

- Last, our Buyers Groups feature special one-off acquisitions that we can offer at discounted prices. These offers are very popular among our regular clientele and usually sell out within days, sometimes hours, of the initial announcement. We encourage you to act quickly if you have an interest in an offer.

In addition to the benefits just outlined, the items offered at our store all fall within the definition of 'rare and unusual' -- the legal definition that made them exempt from confiscation in the preriod from 1933 (when the federal government banned gold ownership) and 1975 (when that ban was lifted). Though there is no guarantee that such an exemption would apply in any future confiscation, the established precedent argues in its favor.

The online store and credit card purchases are offered as a matter of convenience for our clientele. The same items can be purchased off-line by calling our order desk or by speaking directly with your representative at the firm. Volume discounts are available.

Extension # 100

If your interest extends to bulk purchases of the more common pre-1933 historic gold coins, we also offer a wide assortment of items – available offline by phone order – that trade even closer to the coin’s metal content and directly track the gold price.  These items carry the same advantages already mentioned for the privacy-minded. Many investors like to diversify their bulk contemporary bullion coin holdings with these items because of the extra layer of protection. We generally recommend that asset preservation investors devote at least half of their gold holdings to these bulk historical items.
