Your Precious Metals "Checking Account"

It is smart to diversify your precious metals into two categories. The first category is your "checking account," which is bullion that hasn't been certified to have any unique numismatic value. This part of your portfolio can be accessed more quickly than your savings account items by selling it for a value linked to the current spot price. The value of this portion of your portfolio will rise and fall with the current market price of the metal, and offers you diversification from your Dollar-based investments.

Your precious metals "checking account" works like an insurance policy. Should the stock market or the Dollar face a crash, the value of your precious metals will increase to help compensate you for your losses in your Dollar-based investments. Because gold and silver have been accepted as having value for thousands of years, this is an "insurance policy" that you can cash out of at any time.

Your Precious Metals "Savings Account"

Your precious metals "savings account" consists of investment-grade rare coins that have been certified to have numismatic value above and beyond their metal melt value. Because they have value as rare coins, they are not affected by changes in the spot price of gold and silver to the extent that bullion (your precious metals "checking account") is. This offers you further diversification both from the ups and downs of the traditional markets and from the ups and downs of the precious metals markets.

While investment-grade coins are more stable than bullion, they can take longer to liquidate. As a result, they should be considered part of a long-term buy-and-hold strategy.

The Liberty Shield Cent is one of the most popular designs of pattern coinage ever made. Introduced as an experimental alloy by way of a House of Representatives measure dated June 9, 1896, they were presented to the Chairman of the Committee of Coinage, Weights and Measures to test the practical use of such an alloy to strike coins.

It was deemed that nickel, as was used to make this example, was “difficult to work and hard on dies.” Thus, the coin never made it as a serious contender for circulation. Of course, the Indian Head Cent was still in production at the time as well.

Today, serious enthusiasts flock to these behind-the-scenes coins as the lost works of the U.S. Mint. Many of them were simply buried in corners of the Mint for decades until they were found.

It is reported that only 10 were Minted in Nickel, and this is the Finest Known example of any that remain. In an old rattler holder and CAC approved it is a refreshing sight to see, and an extraordinary conversation piece for that special collector looking for something unique at the right price-point.
