Are There Gold Coins To Avoid?

More and more household investors are asking, “Are there gold coins that I should avoid purchasing?” This question is without question a formidable one, and as a general rule, no serious investor should purchase any gold coin without first conducting adequate research on the coin itself. Gold coin comes in both bullion, and rare coin form, and any gold coin with a mysterious origin, or a remarkably low, or high price, should always warrant a bit of closer scrutiny. Anything that seems too good to be true, probably is exactly that, and rarely is this caveat truer than in precious metals investing. Unscrupulous gold coin dealers lurk at every turn, so investors must arm themselves with as much research as possible on rare, and bullion gold coins that could best meet his or her individual, financial needs and expectations.

One of the most commonly marketed gold coins that investors should avoid purchasing, are certified modern bullion coins. These coins are the evil spawn of a cheesy marketing trick, aimed at lumping bullion coins in with certified rare gold coins, so unsuspecting buyers will unwittingly pay an exorbitantly marked-up premium for a certified coin with absolutely no numismatic value whatsoever. Fast-talking dealers are also very adept at interchanging the names of various bullion coins with those of rare gold coins, to confuse and mislead wide-eyed, first time investors, so buyers are hereby forewarned to beware of silver-tongued dealers, who flaunt impossibly affordable gold coin prices.

Investors who have concluded their research, are encouraged to contact one of our friendly specialists, who offer institutional discounts on bullion, and rare gold coin to household investors like you.
