Most of today’s economic experts are finally in agreement that actual economic recovery is realistically about ten years or so in the making, so pragmatic investors from coast to coast are purchasing rare coins like 22-karat Double Eagle coins, and bullion items like one-ounce American Eagle modern bullion coins.
Double Eagle coins are rare, $20 Lady Liberty, and $20 Saint Gaudens, 22-karat gold coins, which contain nearly a full troy ounce of pure gold (.9675 ounces).

These coins are widely sought as long-term safe haven assets, while bullion investments in bars or coins are commonly used as short-term diversifications.
