The Republic Precious Metals Exchange staff has been serving the bullion and numismatic communities since 1997 and offers inventory from under $100 to unique rare coins priced over $1,000,000. Whether you are interested in learning about a Precious Metals IRA, looking for competitive price on gold, silver, or platinum bullion, or searching for that elusive rare coin to add to your collection, you will find RPMEX trading representatives to be knowledgeable and helpful. Our traders' emphasis is on education versus selling, which allows our clientele to make confident choices regarding adding precious metals to their portfolios.
Our acquisition representatives attend all major United States coin shows as well as import foreign gold from around the world. If you're looking for specific rare coins visit our weekly updated Rare Coin Inventory List and or submit your want list via email @ firstname.lastname@example.org. Regardless if you're acquiring bullion as a hedge, securing long term buy and hold positions with rare coins, or transferring your IRA assets to precious metals, RPMEX traders are standing by with knowledge and expertise that you can rely on.
Republic Precious Metals Exchange only represents certified coins graded by one of the two major grading companies: "NGC" Numismatic Guarantee Corporation or "PCGS" Professional Coin Grading Services. Both guarantee unbiased and objective appraisals of a rare coin's condition. Their grades are recognized by numismatists the world over, and assure you of an independent opinion of your purchase.
Physical possession of bullion is the classic hedge against the troubled U.S. dollar. Our relationships with world mints and first-tier metal suppliers allows RPMEX to provide close spreads and timely delivery of hundreds of bullion products including bars, ingots, coins, or grains. We manage a two-way market allowing for timely liquidity when needed, keeping your satisfaction as our primary goal.
Economic times are difficult. The economic recession continues. U.S. debt has now topped $16 trillion, and the U.S. government spends three times what it collects in tax revenues, counting off-budget expenses. The U.S. is having trouble finding buyers for its debt: in 2011 the Fed had to buy 61% of U.S. treasuries. The Fed is now planning another round of money creation that will be used to cover U.S. debt, and this time the quantitative easing will be open-ended. When a country begins to cover its debt by creating money it is the beginning of the end for that country's currency. Portfolio diversification is important now more than ever, and precious metals have been a time-tested way to store wealth for thousands of years.
With the Federal Reserve creating unlimited dollars to finance spending by Congress, the dollar is losing value. It makes sense to diversify your portfolio not only into bullion, but also into investment-grade coins which have prices that move independently from the bullion markets.
At RPMEX we have gained a reputation for teaching customers details about the coin market. Why might the U.S. Mint produce fewer of one coin than another? Which products are likely to have fewer coins graded as PR70? Which metal types tend to produce greater price increases in investment-grade coins? What are the differences between First Strike coins and other investment-grade coins? With the right knowledge, a coin collector can acquire select coins as they are released into the market and watch them grow in value over the following years.
The traders for other coin dealers know how to take an order over the phone, but few traders have the decades of coin knowledge and experience that you will find with RPMEX. By becoming a Preferred Customer with RPMEX you can gain the access to the education that has kept our clients coming back year after year. Call us now to find out more: 1-800-257-3253.
What is the value of your coins? Do you have coins you want to sell? Do you have an estate you want appraised? Do you just want to see what your coins might be worth?
RPMEX offers free appraisal services. Send us a list of your coins and we will contact you regarding their value. We will give you an evaluation of their fair market value and a bid price of what we would be willing to give you for your coins.
The precious metals market has been strong for thousands of years. Bullion is a liquid asset that can easily be converted back into dollars. The market for investment-grade rare coins has also been strong through history. RPMEX will give you a competitive bid for your precious metals and investment-grade coins. In today's environment of rapidly devaluing paper currencies, the demand for these products is especially high. You can purchase bullion and investment-grade coins with the knowledge that buyers will always be available when you are ready to convert your precious metals back into dollars.
The Federal Reserve has announced QE3, which means that it is creating dollars to buy U.S. debt and mortgage debt. This time the money creation has no end date. Since Congress won't stop spending, and since the U.S. can't find enough lenders to cover even half of its deficit, dollars will continue to be created and the dollar will continue to be devalued. Since 2005 gold prices have climbed from $500 to over $1700 an ounce. This is a gain of over 300%. Yet, if you look at past gold prices adjusted for inflation, gold has previously hit levels equal to $2,300 in today's dollars. One financial expert at CNBC predicts that QE3 will cause gold to reach $2,400.
Under these conditions it makes sense to diversify a portion of your portfolio into precious metals. Precious metals have become a popular alternative for assets held in IRA, 401(k), 403(b), and Pension Plans. Transferring funds into a precious metals IRA is a government approved, tax-free and penalty-free transfer. Call our offices today to make the transfer and insure your portfolio.
Investing in gold should not be done for the purpose of seeing returns so much as to protect your overall portfolio. While "traditional" investments can be left to make their traditional gains, investing 15-30% of your IRA in precious metals serves to help insure your portfolio against a drop in the value of the dollar.
As the joke goes, when the economist was asked how he was doing he responded, "compared to what?" When considering how our investments are performing it is important to look at the entire picture. The number of dollars in your account may be rising, but their overall purchasing power may be decreasing. Are your investments keeping up with the rising costs of commodity prices such as oil, food, and education costs?
