Premium Coin Gallery

Premium gold coins may very well represent one of the best investment opportunities in precious metals today. Select gold coins are currently priced well below their historical averages and significantly lower than their all-time highs.

Certain collections of rare and historic gold coins have outperformed virtually every financial asset ... from the stock market, to bonds, to real estate for the past 40 years.

Many gold premium coins have intrinsic value that keeps rising even if the generic value of gold stays the same. They tend to move opposite the value of paper investments thereby providing an excellent hedge against inflation. The passage of time only makes them more precious, more desirable, and ultimately more valuable.

The St. Gaudens $20 Double Eagle is a large, magnificent coin considered by many to be the most beautiful American gold coin. Commissioned by President Teddy Roosevelt, it was among the last coin designs of legendary sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The obverse depicts Liberty in flowing robes holding a torch and olive branch and surrounded by tiny stars. On the reverse, a graceful eagle soars through the sun.

Our Liberty Gold Coin Series was minted from 1838 to 1908 and are some of the most identifiable American historical coins available for collection. These coins circulated during the bright days of the California Gold Rush and the dark moments of the American Civil War. While the $2.50, $5 and $10 denominations were designed by Christian Gobrecht, the third Chief Engraver of the US Mint, the $20 coin was designed by his successor James Longacre. Longacre's "Double Eagle" is the largest gold coin that America ever made for general circulation.

Our Indian Gold Coin Series offers $10, $5 and $2.50 denomination coins with issue dates from 1813 through 1929. Introduced as an alternative to the popular Liberty Head coin, the Indian Series coins are considered to be prized American collectibles. They feature an Indian warrior in full headdress on one side and an eagle on the reverse. These are "incused coins" where features are sunken beneath the coin's surface instead of being raised in a relief pattern. The exquisite $10 coin was designed by acclaimed sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens with latter denominations created by his apprentice Bela Lyon Pratt.

The appeal of Gold Coins is as much nostalgic as it is financially rewarding, and the right portfolio of rare historical coins can deliver long-term appreciation.

Investing in premium coins has distinct benefits that are not available in other investment channels including long term growth, diversification, tangible value and liquidity.
