Riding the gold roller coaster

Posted by: John Feigenbaum on November 8, 2014

Are you riding the gold roller coaster? You're certainly not alone. As rare coin dealers, we are heavily invested in the yellow metal, and find ourselves doing plenty of head-scratching lately. At the moment, gold couldn't be any more OUT of favor. None of the investment geniuses on tv like gold at the moment and prices are flirting with 3-year lows. 

I guess that's why I LOVE gold at the moment! 

With spot prices in the 1100's, gold prices feel safer than they have in years. Gold got as low as $1130 this week before shooting back up to $1175 yesterday. More and more, $1200 seems like the natural buoyancy, so I'm a happy investor whenever it dips below that mark.

Of course, we also love the combination of pre-1933 gold coins which are naturally less volitile than inviesting in strict bullion items. The premiums for nice mint state $20 gold pieces in MS60-MS65 are super low right now so you might consider riding this roller coaster.
