A Proven Strategy for Diversifying Within Gold

Realize the Highest Long-Term Return on Investment

Investment advisors universally recommend portfolio diversification for effective wealth management and long-term financial performance. Precious metals and rare coins are excellent portfolio diversifiers, because they perform independently from the stock market. That is why we strongly recommend an asset allocation of up to 20% of your overall financial portfolio to precious metals and rare coins.

Gold in particular is among the most negatively correlated assets to stocks — when stocks go down, gold prices go up. Gold also serves as a hedge against currency devaluation. While the typical investor begins with a conservative short-term gold bullion investment, most eventually step up to more aggressive gold holdings with higher long-term profit potential.

The Ideal Gold Asset Balance

Through decades of market research and hands-on experience helping clients invest wisely in gold, we’ve identified an asset allocation strategy within gold that offers the best performance over a period of five or more years.

After you set aside approximately 20% of your portfolio for tangible assets, we strongly recommend that you begin working toward this ideal asset balance with your gold holdings. 

 

30–40% - Hold: 1–3 years

Allocate 30%–40% of your tangible asset funds to gold bullion coins or investment grade gold.

This conservative investment offers the highest short-term returns. One-ounce gold bullion coins minted by the U.S. Mint move dollar-for-dollar with the spot gold price. Investment grade gold, also known as “bullion with muscle,” offers the same benefits as bullion but with higher profit potential.

15–20% Mint State Gold | Hold: 2–5 years

Allocate 15%–20% of your tangible asset funds to Mint state gold coins.

This moderately aggressive investment offers fast growth potential and high returns over the medium term. U.S. Gold coins minted between 1890 and 1933 bridge the gap between bullion/investment grade coins and rare coins.

30-40% - Hold: At least 5 years

Allocate 30%–40% of your tangible asset funds to rare coins.

This aggressive investment has historically produced the highest long-term investor returns. Very limited supply means demand can catapult prices at any time.
