In light of a sluggish 2nd quarter economic report, Great Southern Coins recommends hedging investments with American Eagle Gold Coins and American Silver Eagles. Minted and guaranteed by the U.S. Government, fine gold and silver bullion coins help stabilize portfolios through diversification in precious metal holdings.
Great Southern Coins of Boerne, Texas, (GSC) announced recently that in light of continued U.S. and global market instability, investing in the American Eagle Gold Coin and American Silver Eagles is a forward-thinking and wise strategy in protecting and securing personal wealth. Executives at the company further acknowledge that by investing in precious metals, individuals can potentially offset ‘paper’ losses through diversification, thereby hedging against both consumer inflation and stock depreciation as the economy continues to sputter.
Further, ‘physical stores’ of wealth through bullion grade coin investment creates a more reliable portfolio strategy, with precious metals fluctuating less on the commodities market while maintaining and preserving a life-long pattern of appreciation. GSC additionally posits that the American Gold and Silver Eagle coins are likely the most popular coin transactions executed in America, which easily translates into ready buy/sell markets for investors seeking protection and profit in either the short or long term.
The American Eagle Gold Coin’s initial worth includes the face value as currency, struck in $5, $10, $25 and $50 denominations by the U.S. Mint. Yet, it is their actual intrinsic value as a precious metal that carries the greatest investment heft since bullion grade coins are valued by the spot price of each metal’s troy weight on any given day.
The American Eagle Gold coin is minted in 4 troy weight sizes: 1/10 Oz, ¼ Oz, ½ Oz and 1 Oz. American Silver Eagles are minted in a 1 Oz size and $1 denomination only. Both gold and silver 1 Oz coins are produced by exact weight equaling 1 Oz pure precious metal. Consequently, the greatest hedge value of American Gold and Silver Eagles out-performs other investment products. As such, buying and holding precious metals as opposed to paper-backed funds offers greater investment protection. In short, as one GSC executive describes the strategy, “if you don’t hold it, you don’t own it.”
Finally, in addition to troy weight value, a wider collector market for both the American and Silver Eagle coins is secured by their beauty. Many individuals invest for the ‘love of the coin’ thereby increasing potential buyers. Both coins share similar designs as created by August Saint-Gaudens showing lady liberty on the obverse side and the bald eagle on the reverse side.
