Celebrating Coin Week by Getting Back to the Basics With U.S. Money Reserve

Each year, Coin Week gives collectors the chance to reflect on the basics and benefits of owning precious metals. Overseen by the American Numismatic Association, each year’s celebration has a theme to help guide discussion and make the consideration of precious metals coins for portfolio diversification more enlightening and engaging. For 2022’s National Coin Week, slated for April 17–23, 2022, the theme was “Dynamic Designs, Artistic Masterpieces,” a topic that resonates well with U.S. Money Reserve clients who enjoy the timeless designs of government-issued precious metals coins.

Coins offered by U.S. Money Reserve include bullion coins and high-quality certified gold, silver, platinum, and palladium 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, U.S. Money Reserve has 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 designs that celebrate our nation’s history, numerous options are available to choose from, any of which may make an excellent addition to a premier coin collection or financial or retirement portfolio. 

Of course, the appeal of precious metals goes far beyond aesthetics. When it comes to choosing precious metals for your portfolio, you’ll find that gold has a well-documented history of retaining and even growing its purchasing power over the long term. In this way, gold can provide a unique means of passing on generational wealth. Historically, gold also tends to remain strong even as the U.S. dollar or other fiat currencies experience volatility, making gold coins and bullion a great way to help diversify a portfolio away from solely paper-based assets. Another reason consumers diversify with gold is that it has not typically been tied to the sways of stocks, bonds, and similar assets that often make up the bulk of a financial portfolio, allowing gold to function as a hedge against market uncertainty. 

For these reasons, among others, gold demand has reached “its highest quarterly level since Q2 2019,” according to the World Gold Council. National Coin Week is just one of the many ways to celebrate the ongoing rich heritage of owning precious metals. National Coin Week was established in 1974 by President Richard Nixon and renewed the proclamation 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 importance that coins have. Said President Reagan, “Today, millions of Americans collect coins for both pleasure and profit.”

Gold and other precious metals coins are included in diversified portfolios for a variety of additional reasons. Gold is widely considered a safe-haven asset, having helped protect portfolios during previous periods of political 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 that can help hedge against other assets. Gold coinage is also a private form of wealth that can be accumulated and stored as desired, without a digital trail and in the utmost privacy.
