What is a Proof coin?

Proof coins, gold, silver and platinum, are struck in a unique and time consuming manner in very limited quantities. Each coin is hand fed into the mintage presses, just a handful coins at a time by a proof specialist. The initial blanks, then coins are never touched by human hands to prevent any flaws or smudges. Rather than being stamped just once, each Proof coin is stamped multiple times creating the high-gloss, mirror-like finish that is the hallmark of Proof coins. Each coin is encapsulated in plastic and sold in a velvet box with a certificate of authenticity from the U.S Mint. All Proof Gold coins are minted .9999 pure and Silver coins, .999 Fine, pure.

What is “legacy value”?

Legacy value refers to an ancient tradition, passed down from generation to generation, particularly from old world Europe, where children and grandchildren received valuable coins as gifts. The thought was that the coins would become more valuable over time and the recipient would always remember the grantor with fond memories. Today is no exception. Perhaps more than ever, our children deserve the safety and stability that legacy gifts of Gold, Silver and Platinum can provide.

What is a Proof coin certificate?

The U.S. Mint packages each Proof coin with a Certificate of Authenticity from the U.S Mint. The COA provides the buyer with the assurance that each coin is genuine. Unlike bullion coins, the actual coins are sealed in a plastic case and are not readily available for chemical testing. The coins are presented in a velvet hinged case for viewing. The certificate enclosed with each coin provides each buyer with authenticity assurance backed by the full faith of the U.S. Government.

How do Proof coins perform?

Priced nominally higher than bullion, Proof coins offer other advantages; both intrinsically and with greater growth & profit potential. Proof coins have typically out-performed bullion coins in terms of price valuation. Due to their scarcity and popularity for IRA and other retirement accounts, Proof coins tend to be the coin of choice for the discriminating buyer/investor.
