Quality numismatic coins are the best buy right now

Casey Research editor touts the virtues of rare gold collectibles

Doug Casey is a legend among contrarian investors, and his Casey Research financial news site is a must-read source of information for anyone interested in precious metals, mining, inflation, currencies, and other key financial topics.

Therefore, it’s no surprise that in a recent feature titled “What Casey Research Staff Are Buying This Summer,” most staffers mentioned physical gold and silver bullion as well as mining stocks. That’s what regular readers expect to hear.

However, perhaps senior editor Doug Hornig offered up the most interesting buy recommendation: rare coins.

“I think quality numismatic coins are the best buy right now, which I’ve focused on, because they’re down 50% or more from their highs, which is a lot more than gold itself. If collectibles rebound as they always have, I’ll do very well. But if not, I still have the value of the underlying asset, gold, which provides a powerful amount of downside protection, and that’s not to be sneezed at.

“I don’t buy gold as a speculation; just as an heirloom (hopefully, provided I don’t need it myself) for my kids. So I couldn’t care less about the gyrations of the gold price. Anyone who wants to play those ups and downs is welcome to, and it could be very profitable to do it. It’s just not for me. I’m strictly buy and hold.”

Hornig’s take is a reminder of the importance of diversification. Don’t put all your money into stocks and bonds, but make room for some gold and silver bullion. And don’t put 100% of your money into precious metals, either. However, physical bullion is a bedrock component of any prudently diversified portfolio. But don’t stop there with bullion. Diversify your metals holdings with some rare coins, which can help investors ride out the fluctuations of the stocks and bullion markets while also offering up the potential for huge appreciation from their collectible and historical value.
