Without reference to other economic data, a precious metal chart is merely a visual aid that displays the timetable of the gold spot price’s inclines and declines. This information in and of itself may be useful to a fortuneteller, or a forensics expert, but to serious precious metal investors, economic indicators like dollar values, unemployment rates, and inflationary increases are also essential to effectively interpret a precious metal chart.
Historically, during long-term periods of economic recuperation, gold prices tend to rise while dollar values diminish. Years of overprinting by our nations’ Treasury Department have contributed abundantly to our constricting economy, so it makes sense that gold prices are climbing, since gold is what backs the perceived value of all printed, or “fiat” currency in the first place. A rare coin precious metal chart will also show that the numismatic value of rare coins especially appreciates during these turbulent economic periods, and savvy long-term investors capitalize on this trend.
These independent-minded investors ideally purchase rare Double Eagle coins, which are 22-karat, $20 Lady Liberty, and $20 Saint Gaudens gold coins, minted from 1850 to 1907, and from 1907 to 1933, respectively. During the long-term inflationary cycle of the 1970’s, some Double Eagle rare coins appreciated by nearly 1000%, while traditional investments in stocks and bonds endured nearly a decade of desolation. Household investors can avoid paying outrageous retail prices for their Double Eagle rare coins by contacting one of our friendly specialists, who offer institutional discounts on rare coin, and bullion.
