Buy U.S. Historic Gold Coins
Here's Where Buying Pre-1933 Gold Actually Makes Sense
Independent Living Bullion has long warned precious metals investors to steer clear of collectible coins and the enormous premiums their peddlers charge. The fact is that many historic gold coins are not "collectible" – at least not in the sense that justifies paying prices way over their melt value.
But when "jewelery grade" historic coins are selling at prices close to their actual gold content, as is sometimes the case, it's certainly a good time to buy them.
These 90% gold coins are historic, constitutional money that once circulated in America. One might consider these coins as the gold equivalent to "junk" silver (aka pre-1965 90% coins that are basically worth their melt value). The premiums on these coins are often the same, or lower, than comparable modern-day American Gold Eagle bullion coins.
