Vintage U.S. Gold at Bullion Prices
In 2019, gold is moving on up.
That’s why we believe today is a good time to get off the fence and take action. Last year, gold faced considerable headwinds from a strong U.S. dollar, the nearly decade-long equities bull market, considerable outflows from gold ETF’s, and a Federal Reserve determined to steadily raise interest rates.
Yet, despite these significant pressures, gold surged 4.4% in December, 7.4% in the 4th Quarter, and managed to end the year basically flat. Gold prices have been steadily trendinupwards and we believe that 2019 will be bullish for gold.
Every day ASI receives feedback from clients interested in not only owning gold for wealth insurance, but for profit motivation as well. Fortunately, there is a solution we believe can achieve both of those goals with a numismatic flair. Today’s premiums and the current low spot prices represent a superb entry point for classic U.S. gold.
Take Advantage of Low Premiums
The combination of low premiums and low spot prices is extremely unusual. These conditions offer two ways to profit from pre-1933 gold: a rise in spot prices and/or premium increases. In fact, if history is any indication, a sharp rise in gold spot price could trigger significant premium expansion. This phenomenon has repeated itself many times in the past.
For decades, vintage U.S. gold coins commanded a significant premium over modern minted products. There are two fundamental reasons why: limited supply and dual demand.
Unlike newly-issued bullion items, there is only a finite number of vintage American gold coins in existence. Enormous quantities of these coins were melted in the mid-20th century, when Franklin Delano Roosevelt passed Executive Order 6102 in 1933. This edict prohibited both the minting and hoarding of American gold coins.
The limitation on gold ownership ended in the 1970’s and the relatively few pieces that survived quickly found new life as collectibles and investments. The demand for classic (a.k.a. pre-1933) U.S. gold coins became robust, but the supply is limited.
Vintage U.S. gold coins attract two kinds of buyers: investors and numismatists. Collectors are drawn to the coins for their beautiful designs and historical importance. Investors like pre-1933 coins for their track record of outperforming generic gold bullion in times of uncertainty. In the last 15 years, most denominations and designs have sold for 20% to 40% over melt value. This was especially true in choppy markets like 2009 and 2013.
When the spot price of gold becomes volatile, classic coin premiums tend to climb quickly—and dramatically—but for now, savvy buyers can now pick up pre-1933 gold for the absolute lowest premiums.
In order to accommodate client demands for the best opportunities in bullion and numismatics, we’ve decided to offer a selective allocation of “junk gold” coins. Over the years, we’ve had countless requests for a gold product with the same kind of divisibility our clients have come to know and value with junk silver. These so-called “junk gold” coins are pre-1933 US gold coins with historical significance and easy divisibility.
We are able to offer the $50 Junk Gold Set with a razor-thin premium of just 5% over melt value* for a limited time.
When gold prices surge in the later half of the year, as all the major financial trends are pointing to, these low premiums will no longer be possible. If you’re serious about owning gold—and getting it while it’s cheap—you absolutely must act now!
We have a limited supply of gold at these prices. Once it’s gone, these low premiums are gone as well. To reserve your low-premium junk gold today, please call us at 800-831-0007 or email us.
*Prices subject to change based on market fluctuation and product availability. Prices reflected are for cash, check, or bank wire. Free shipping, handling, and insurance are available for any junk gold purchases of $350.00 Face Value or more. Offer expires Friday, January 18, 2019, or while supplies last.
