The official Certified Gold exchange has issued a warning to clients concerning counterfeit gold coins after a recent article about a Nevada man’s estate auction that turned up dozens of fake $20 gold coins. Certified Gold Exchange vice-president of marketing Stewart Lawson says that while none of the man’s coins came from the Certified Gold Exchange, the company thought it was a good idea to remind clients of the risks that come with gold investing.
“We have never shipped a single counterfeit product, but a lot of companies don’t have access to the resources or technology that we do at the Certified Gold Exchange,” Lawson said. “Even if a company that ships coins in good faith may be unwittingly selling fake gold coins.”
Lawson recommends that investors only purchase bullion coins from authorized mint distributors. “In the case of certified gold coins, PCGS and NGC are the two trusted coin certifiers,” Lawson said. “However, since China produces some really impressive fakes it is a good idea to do business with a company that has been around a long time and that has a stellar [Better Business Bureau] rating with no complaints of any sort, especially not related to product authenticity.” Lawson says the note was only sent to clients but individuals interested in learning how to avoid fake coinage may receive a copy by using the contact form on the company’s web site.
