Gold Coin Investment Tips and Tricks

With the stage set for global currency war, with demand in Asia holding steady as the highest in the world, and with money printing schemes like quantitative easing only kicking the inflation can a little bit further down the road, gold is going to prove to be the safest investment you can make this year. Gold has historically been an effective hedge against currency devaluation, inflation, and general economic uncertainty, all of which we can expect to see in the years to come.

The gold price has been moving in cycles over the last eight years, consistently reaching peaks, each higher than the last, every 21 to 22 months. That cycle is about to peak again sometime between May and July, and the current low prices for gold make now the best time to start investing in the yellow metal. The best investment trick is to buy when prices are low, and as this cycle is expected to repeat itself two or three more times, current prices will soon be seen as relatively very low.

Investing in gold coins will be one of the best things you can do for your finances this year, as gold is money, even when money isn’t money anymore. Gold coins are very liquid and easier for small investors to sell off than large bars. They are better in emergency situations, in case you need to sell a little bit, as you can sell a few coins rather than having to liquidate an entire gold bar.

Certified Rare or Bullion Coins?

In order to make the best gold coin investments for your personal portfolio, you must ask yourself what you want to get out of gold investing. If you merely want the gold for the gold’s sake, then modern bullion coins are probably the way to go.

Gold bullion coins are minted in large amounts by government mints all over the world. Their value is almost wholly derived from the weight and purity of the gold used to mint them, so they carry very low premiums.

If you want more out of your gold investment, however, it will be worth your while to look at investing in rare gold coins. Many investors enjoy this option because of the numismatic factor of it. It can be fun to collect old, rare coins. They tell a story and offer investors a valuable piece of a country’s history.

But there is a more practical function to them, as well. Because of their numismatic value, rare coins are protected even from the price of gold itself. If gold does lose value (an unlikely, but still possible scenario) rare coins will retain their numismatic value. Rare coins are an investment that is a hedge against itself.

There are trusted coin grading companies that allay and authenticate rare coins, ensuring this as an extremely safe gold investment option. They are also private, i.e., not registered by the government, and not likely to be confiscated in case of an economic emergency, as happened in 1933, when FDR signed Executive Order 6102, criminalizing the private possession of more than five ounces of gold.
