Hallmark Coins Goes Global, Attracting Interest in Investments from Japan, Brazil and Canada

Share Article

What do Japan, Brazil and Canada have in common? Besides the fact that two of those countries have hosted a winter Olympics and the other is about to host the summer Olympics, it’s not the quest for gold amongst sports folk that links them, but rather the renewed surge in interest in the precious metal as a commodity and also as an investment opportunity.

Our clients may come from a variety of markets with varying degrees of knowledge in the art of investing in and trading in collectible coins, but they all share a common goal of procuring a one of a kind coin to make their portfolios unique

As more people look to gold and more so rare gold coins as a stable investment, Hallmark Coins has seen a spike in visits to its website from serious collectors in all three countries.

Compared to the same time last year, visits to their website from Japan increased by 166%, Brazil by 183% and Canada by 148%. Spurred by a resurgence in the gold industry in Brazil and a five year record high of gold sales by Japan’s biggest bullion retailer in the first few months of this year, Hallmark Coins have also reported an increase in business from these countries that have not been traditionally viewed as major players when it comes to numismatic trading.

With the yen taking a battering against major currencies and investors looking to protect themselves and their investments against inflation and the resultant depreciation in value of assets, Japanese investors have sought the relative sanctity of gold bullion. On the other side of the world with gold prices high, a mature gold infrastructure, a stable first-world government and relatively favourable mining-friendly laws, interest in gold in Brazil is on the up and up.

So it’s not surprising then that on a fresh wave of optimism surrounding the precious metal of late and fears of a double dip recession creeping across world stocks, shares and equities markets that many are diversifying their practice of gold trading and investment to include that of rare gold coins and gold sovereigns.

Elliot Basker, Online Business Manager, Hallmark Coins, says, “Over much of the five years that we have been in business we have traditionally seen a majority of numismatists coming from United States and European markets. This we believe is due to the fact that the age and uniqueness of coins such as the American Buffalo Gold Coin and the British Gold Sovereign has seen those regions dominate the demand and supply of much sought after individual coins and coin collections.

Today our business is completely global, with buyers and sellers from as far afield as Australia, America, South Africa and now to a larger degree Brazil, Canada and Japan looking to either enter the market for the first time, or extend their portfolios to include precious coins that can be found on our user friendly website.”

As relative veterans of the industry with a wealth of knowledge coming from experts who both pioneered the company and others that are now employed by it, Hallmark Coins are in the enviable position of being perceived as leaders and trend setters.

It would appear that this reputation is spreading to new markets as through word of mouth amongst numismatists, more are realising that it pays to seek the advice of a company that has built a reputation on being both impartial and unwavering in their commitment to securing the right coin at the right price.
