Buying gold coins is the smartest investment decision one can make this year. Yes, we’ve resolved the vertiginous ‘fiscal cliff’ dilemma, but now, once again, the debt ceiling looms over our heads like the trembling roof of a cave on the verge of collapse. Furthermore, with Washington becoming increasingly divided down bipartisan lines with each passing day, it seems as though the only thing of which we can be certain in 2013 is that the economy’s future is indisputably uncertain.
There is no safer investment right now than physical gold. And one of the safest ways to invest in physical gold is to buy certified coins. Certified rare coins give investors the peace of mind of an investment that has been guaranteed for authenticity and grade by a respected, professional coin grading company.
What Makes Certified Coins So Safe?
Investing in rare coins backs the already financially smart and safe decision to invest in gold bullion with an added layer of security. Rare coins, as opposed to modern bullion coins, have on top of the gold’s value as hard money a numismatic value that protects them from even the gold market itself. If the gold spot price drops, certified coins remain stable due to their numismatic value.
What’s more, the rare coins on the market today are the only ones that will ever exist. By definition, new rare coins cannot be minted. Therefore, rare certified coins only increase in value with each passing year.
Our Picks For 2013
Over the past decade, there have been rare certified coins that have consistently outperformed gold bullion, and there is no reason that the trend should reverse this year. Let’s take a look at some of the best certified coins to buy in 2013:
With a gold content of 90% (10% copper), this beautifully detailed classic rare coin is an aesthetic and financially smart investment.
Predecessor to the Saint-Gaudens, the $20 Liberty is a striking piece of American history. Minted from 1850 to 1907, this stunning gold coin is definitely a welcome addition to any respectable collection.
The $10 Liberty Gold Eagle’s unusual number of rarities, as well as its two types classification (motto and no motto), make it a must-have for rarity type sets.
Part of sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens’s charge to redesign U.S. gold coins, the $10 Indian is another shining example of the beauty available from the U.S. Mint’s distinguished history.
The Indian Gold Half Eagle marks the end of an era of quality gold coin minting. Most were confiscated and melted down under President Roosevelt’s executive order of 1933, making this a very rare coin indeed.
