Historic U.S. $20 Gold Pieces
A solid hedge and  potential profit-maker under a variety of economic scenarios

Here at USAGOLD, we see 19th and 20th century-minted U.S. $20 gold pieces as a “diversification within a diversification” – something to augment the overall gold portfolio and provide an investor the opportunity for premium gains above and beyond what an ordinary investment in gold bullion coins might provide.

Gold as the portfolio choice for all seasons

Deflation • Disinflation • Stagflation • Hyperinflation

“That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history.” – Aldous Huxley

Though Huxley’s observation is readily applied to humanity collectively, it does not apply so easily to individual investors. As justification, we offer the ongoing (and long-term) success of the USAGOLD website as well as the soaring statistics on the growth of private gold ownership over the past decade both in the United States and abroad, inspired directly by the lessons learned over the past decade of financial market upheaval. The following short essays are dedicated to the safe-haven gold investor who, like noted financial author Nicholas Taleb, believes that it is just as important to prepare for what we cannot foresee as what we can.

Preparing for a potential gold confiscation

by George R. Cooper, J.D.

We view confiscation as a possibility, rather than a probability, and see historic gold coins as an important hedge for those interested in addressing those concerns within their gold holdings. It should be emphasized that there is a whole genre of pre-1933 gold coins that can be acquired at moderate premiums over contemporary bullion coins and still fall within the category of items excluded from the U.S. government seizure of gold in 1933 and the subsequent ownership ban of gold bullion that extended to 1975.
