The Benefits of Owning Rare Coins
Holding Original American Coins gives one the advantage of realizing greater growth potential due to the additional driving factors of non-replica coins, over a longer period of time. Because Original American Coins are unique, limited in numbers, and act as an excellent tool for barter and trade, these assets show excellent returns over the course of a long-term investment plan.
How to Value a Coin
Rarity • Popularity • Condition • Uncirculated coins
Most importantly, Original American Coins have intrinsic value due to their precious metal content, which forms a solid base in any investment portfolio, making them the ultimate physical, tangible Precious Metal.
Grading a coin is a way of determining its physical condition. Coins that have been properly stored since the day they were minted are called “uncirculated” or “mint state.” Because each individual coin is unique, even uncirculated coins can have different grades. These grades are dependent upon how carefully each coin was made, handled, and stored.
Certified Graded Coins Offer:
- Global recognition leading to increased liquidity
- More profit potential upon liquidation
- Instant credibility – PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service) or NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation) encapsulated graded coins can be bought or sold without having to inspect them for authenticity and condition prior to purchase

The Confiscation Act of 1933 resulted in previously common gold coins becoming very rare. As such, the surviving pre-1933 U.S. gold coins are fixed at an extremely limited supply and are now considered the Original American Coins. As we have explored, pre-1933 Gold Coins are an excellent long-term hedge against inflation because their value is derived from multiple driving factors such as limited supply and monetary use, for example. The demand for rare coins has long been driven by Collectors and investors’ markets alike, however, with individual savers HOARDING original pre-1933 Gold Coins now more than ever, the supply is becoming increasingly limited.
Alliance Gold Group recommends Silver coins minted before 1964 for most coin portfolios.
