Each year, Coin Week gives collectors the chance to reflect on the benefits and basics of owning precious metals. Overseen by the American Numismatic Association, each year has a theme that makes thinking deeply on this retirement portfolio option more enlightening and engaging. For National Coin Week, which is slated for April 17-23, 2022, the theme is Dynamic Designs, Artistic Masterpieces, a topic that resonates well with U.S. Money Reserve, which is known for its timelessly designed collectable coins.
Coins from U.S. Money Reserve include “bullion coins and high-quality, certified gold, silver, and platinum coins produced by the U.S. Mint and fully backed by the United States government for weight, content, and purity.” And when it comes to designs, there is no shortage of options to choose from. From burnished gold American eagle coins to proof gold American buffalo coins as well as a variety of commemorative designs that celebrate our nation’s history, there are countless options to choose from and add to any premier coin collection.
What’s more, the value of precious metals also goes far beyond aesthetics. When it comes to choosing precious metals for your coin collection or retirement planning, gold has a history of holding its value like no other material. In this way, gold is a unique means to pass on generational wealth due to its sentimental and lasting value. Historically, it also tends to remain strong even as the dollar or other currencies experience tumult. Gold coins and bullion can be a great way to diversify a portfolio, rather than placing all of one’s wealth in the same assets. Gold, for example, is not typically tied to the sways of the stock market, bonds, and similar financial portfolio opportunities.
For these reasons, and many more, gold has reached “its highest quarterly level since Q2 2019,” according to the World Gold Council. Coin collecting and National Coin Week are just one of the many ways to celebrate the ongoing rich heritage of owning precious metals. The week was established in 1974 by President Richard Nixon and renewed in 1983 by President Ronald Reagan. Both Presidents called on the week as a way to celebrate the nation’s history as well as the artistic and monetary value that coins have. Said President Reagan, “Today, millions of Americans collect coins for both pleasure and profit.”
Of course, gold and other precious metal coins can be collected for a variety of reasons. Gold is widely considered a safe haven asset, remaining reliable and retaining its value historically during periods of unrest and economic turmoil. According to U.S. Money Reserve, “During volatile times like these, gold tends to surge – even outperform – riskier asset classes.” For this reason, among others, gold remains a portfolio diversifier to help hedge against other assets. Gold coinage is also a very private form of wealth that can be accumulated and stored as desired, without a digital trail and with the utmost of privacy.
