Pre-1933 U.S. Gold Coins
Make a sound investment in both gold and history
When you want your portfolio to reflect America and its heritage, Pre-1933 U.S. Gold coins may be a sound investment choice because of their relative scarcity when compared to modern issue bullion coins.
Why? Their supply is finite. For two reasons: first, these coins have limited mintages. Secondly, in 1933, the U.S. government attempted to commandeer gold coins in a mandatory redemption program instituted by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Many were melted down into gold bars for use in international commerce. In the wake of the Great Depression, many banks were failing and consumers in the U.S. lost their confidence in the banking system.
Roosevelt, in an effort to revitalize the American economy, instituted a plan where citizens were asked to redeem their gold for Federal Reserve Notes. This action instantly created a compelling reason for U.S. citizens to protect their assets in a private, tangible store of wealth.
But the recall didn’t get all of them, and today, scarcity works to the coins’ benefit – and to yours.
When you purchase Pre-1933 U.S. Gold coins, you gain both the value of the gold and the premium price that can occur when there’s demand in the marketplace. You also capture an era in America’s history that can never be replicated again, and acquire an heirloom that will be cherished for generations.
