    Gold has gone from an average annual price of $271 per ounce in 2001 to more than $1,700 today. Those of our clients who stayed out of the gold market in 2000 and 2001, at our direction, saved themselves from losses. Those who got back into the market in 2002, as we recommended, have substantially increased their wealth. We were right then; we’re just as confident that we’re right today when we say we can make even more money for our clients who invest in rare coins.

    The historical relationship between gold and numismatics takes much of the guesswork out of investing in rare coins. Rare coins follow gold but eventually surpass gold. Bull markets in rare coins always occur during or after periods of rising gold prices. When a bull market in rare coins gets cranked up, it goes up much further and much faster than does the price of gold. The annual average returns on rare coins have historically been more than 250% greater than returns on gold bullion, reliable independent reports show.

    Uncertainty in the U.S. stock market is bullish for tangible assets, having brought about a flight to quality as investors move part of their savings into more stable assets that provide portfolios with much-needed protection and excellent investment returns.

    The U.S. economic outlook has deteriorated significantly, and there is much talk of another full-blown financial crisis. Today’s economic conditions present an ideal opportunity to realize windfall profits from rare coins. Our goal, our objective as a company, is to make money for our clients. Today, the key to profits is the fact that rare coins follow gold but eventually go up much further than gold. But timing is everything.
