Certified Gold Coins

Certified Gold Coins are those which have been certified and guaranteed for authenticity and grade by a third-party service such as PCGS and NGC.

Rare Coin Certification Services

Today there are eight major coin grading services and a growing number of upstarts enter the field every year. For the safety of your investment only the most prominent services should be considered.
In order of market acceptance the top four grading services are PCGS, NGC, ANACS, and ICG. Of those, only PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service) and NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation) are widely recommended. Both have received 'superior'ratings from the Professional Numismatists Guild and the Industry Council for Tangible Assets. Knowing which certified gold coins make the best investment, the next question is "Why invest in certified rare gold coins?"

The Benefits Of PCGS & NGC Certified Gold Coin Investment

Certified Rare Gold Coins are as good an investment as you can make in today's uncertain economic climate. Here's why:

a) Safety

In times like these hard money is the safest place to store your wealth. The dollar is soft money and its value has been steadily declining since the government began stripping away its backing of gold and silver over a hundred years ago. In contrast, gold has maintained its purchasing power over centuries.

b) Stability

The supply of rare certified gold coins is strictly limited while demand is steadily growing, making them much less dependent on the volatile spot price of gold than bullion bars and coins.

c) Performance

The numismatic value of certified gold coins - the so-called 'rarity premium' -provides a second avenue for solid returns as scarcity grows with demand. In fact, as you can see in this chart, certain certified gold coins have outperformed bullion by a considerable margin throughout the first decade of this century.

d) Security

The door has been left open for a gold bullion confiscation like that in 1933 should the government ever deem it necessary. By precedent certified rare coins can be expected to be exempt from any such action.

The need to protect your wealth from the inflationary effects of the nation's out of control debt has never been more urgent. There can be no safer haven than gold and no better asset than certified gold coins.
