Former U.S. Mint Director Talks About Owning Gold

Gold coins have become one of the most popular ways to invest in gold bullion. Several countries including South Africa, Canada, China and the U.S. all produce their own form of gold bullion in coin form.

A graded, or certified, gold, silver or platinum coin is one that has undergone careful scrutiny by an independent coin grading service such as NGC or PCGS in order to determine the coin’s overall condition.

Coins are graded on a scale (Sheldon Scale) from 1 to 70, with a grade of 70 reserved for coins determined to be flawless. 

Grading can be important to the future value of a gold, silver or platinum coin, because grade determines the population of a given type of coin, and therefore, its potential rarity. Grading also serves to physically protect a coin because, once a grade has been issued, a grading service sonically seals the coin inside an impact-resistant case.

 Diversifying in gold can help enable financial stability for years to come.

 There are different reasons as to why small investors may choose gold, Such reasons could include, for example, reaping retirement benefits, but whatever the stance on investing; the reward is potentially great.
