STARTING A CERTIFIED RARE COIN PORTFOLIO

What does a model portfolio consisting of certified rare coins graded by either PCGS or NGC look like? There are many variations and the above selection represents what we hope will be an interesting beginning. If you are looking for something more specific either call us toll free (1-800-225-7531) and ask for a check of our complete inventory or email richard@golddealer.com. I will add your interest area to my Want List – there is never any obligation and I’m happy to help or answer questions.

In the meantime consider three reasons as to why placing hard asset money into this area makes sense:
Certified Rare Coins
First, certified coins offer folks an alternative to storing wealth which also protects against 3rd party intrusion.

Second, certified rare coins offer financial privacy, investment potential and can be historically fascinating.

Third, we believe many certified rare coins are undervalued.

The bullion portion of your hard asset portfolio is simply a choice of bullion coins or bars. But what about the choice of certified rare coins when it comes to investment balance? We offer a few rules to get you started.

WHICH ARE THE BEST EARLY RARE COINS?

Which certified rare coins should you consider for long-term investment? In fact no person knows for sure, but there are parameters, which will lead you in the right direction. Look for coins which interest you – the more interest the more enjoyment – an added benefit. Early type, colonial coins, patterns, or better date silver dollars are a good start.

THE RARITY VERSUS DEMAND SECRET

Rarity by itself is not the best way to approach this unique area. Rarity is good, but if there is no demand for a coin its rarity will be of little value. Link rarity with demand. Many certified coins are rare, but their popularity is what pushes their price dynamic.

WHICH GRADE IS BEST?

It is important that your certified coins are graded by PCGS (The Professional Coin Grading Service) or NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation). This enhances liquidity and evaluation. Rare coins are graded using the Sheldon Scale from 1 to 70. The higher the number the better the condition and usually the more elusive the coin. As rarity and popularity increase so does price so look of a balance between rarity and affordability.

INTERESTING STORIES ARE IMPORTANT

Certified rare coins with an interesting story are better choices. Stories and the history behind them are important because they bring these treasures to life. The more compelling the story the better the opportunity to build your valuable holdings.

CONSIDER MARKET CYCLES

The price history of certified coins will tell you where in the cycle you are and provide clues which lead to good decisions. People who have a strategy are better equipped because they develop a long-term plan taking advantage of “up” and “down” markets. They do their homework and choose attractive early rare coins. Past performance does not guarantee future results but it’s a good place to begin.

THE KEY IS LOOKING FOR VALUE

Like stocks some rare coins today can be purchased for less than their old highs which might indicate that a value buy is appropriate. On the other hand there are coins which are trading on their highs, not that we would dismiss these possibilities, but we want to identify both sides of the spectrum so you can balance your holdings.

Follow the “50 year rule” – because it keeps you focused. Never invest in a rare coin which is not at least fifty years old because without an established record the outcome becomes unpredictable. Choose “coins of significance” and stay away from modern issues and certified bullion coins – there are better choices.

Building a powerful collection creates a journey through history and is fun to boot – but requires patience. If you have a bunch of “old stuff” consider consolidating into “better” material with a theme. And read a few rare coin books along the way. There is an old adage in this trade which says “buy the book before the coin” – the more you know the better your results will become.
