Everything You Love About Junk Silver in a Golden Package
By Brian Zweig
A recent opportunity for gold investors is shaping up to be unlike anything we’ve seen in over 35 years of business—and it could be one of the best opportunities you get to own divisible gold.
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. Now, for the first time we can recall, you can get many of the same qualities of junk silver with gold—but at premiums lower than most gold bullion coins! And much like junk silver, these vintage U.S. junk gold coins can be exchanged quickly and easily in small denominations.
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 (like Eagles, Maples, or bars), there are a finite number of vintage American gold coins in existence. Enormous quantities of these coins were melted in the mid-20th century, and relatively few pieces have survived today. The remaining supply is fixed and cannot expand.
On the demand side, 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.
Owing to these factors, vintage U.S. gold coins have traded for significant premiums over the years. 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, pre-1933 coin premiums tend to climb quickly—and dramatically.
Over the past year, however, vintage U.S. gold premiums have fallen to the lowest level we’ve ever witnessed. Why? It’s been a perfect storm of three factors. First, the spot price of gold (until recently) has been range-bound with little volatility. Second, investors have been distracted by other asset classes like stocks and real estate. Third, a few large liquidations pushed pre-1933 U.S. gold premiums down to abnormally low levels.
While many (if not most) vintage gold coins are a superb value right now, one coin stands out as the best buy. Today, you can buy junk gold $10 Liberty Eagles (0.4837 fine gold) in Extremely Fine (XF) condition for lower premiums than ½-ounce gold Eagles—or any fractional gold coin for that matter!
Despite their ultra-low premiums, these $10 Liberties are truly a cut above in terms of condition. In order for a coin to grade XF, it must be free of any problems with minimal wear. In years past, only cleaned, scratched, and heavily worn pre-1933 U.S. gold coins were available at single-digit premiums. Now, you can pick up these coins in collector grades at just a miniscule premium over melt.
Don’t Let Low Premiums Slip Through Your Fingers
Because of the nature of this offer, we can only guarantee this heavily discounted rate while our inventory remains. We have a limited quantity of these $10 Liberties, and we cannot replace them at these low prices. It’s also important to note volatility has returned to the gold market lately, which bodes well for premiums. Premiums have started to jump on products like gold Eagles and 90% silver coins—pre-1933 U.S. gold just might be the next category to spike. Calm markets created these historically low prices, but a few volatile weeks could easily double or triple premiums.
Not only are you getting an incredible discount on divisible gold, but this is also a unique opportunity for you to invest in historic, divisible U.S. gold coins at bullion pricing. Now is the time to take advantage of the opportunity to invest in $10 Liberties at unprecedented premiums. Rarely, if ever, can you acquire these historic coins at such razor-thin margins over spot. This is a first for us in over 35 years of business—and it might be decades again before this situation repeats itself.
