At First Fidelity Reserve, we’ve made it our mission to help people like you develop precious metal investment portfolios that are tailored to fit your exact needs when it comes to protection, privacy, security, and growth — in any economy. We do this by answering your questions and working directly with Mike Fuljenz, America’s Gold Expert®, to provide you with the best options available. In Mike’s own words, “We believe a company doesn’t deserve your business, they should earn it. Maybe that’s why more and more customers nationwide are turning to us for answers.”
You Can Experience the Gold Expert Advantage
Anybody can claim that they work with an expert, but we actually do. Mike Fuljenz has over 40 years of experience, written numerous industry-standard books, and received more than 60 national and regional awards including the Numismatic Literary Guild’s highest honor, “The Clemy Award” in 2013. Don’t worry, we’re not going to detail all of his many achievements here because you can already check out Mike Fuljenz’ resume on our site. We will, however, detail some of the key benefits of working with us and our gold expert.
First Fidelity customers can experience what we call the Gold Expert Advantage. Our customers typically get first choice of hand-selected, quality coins that become available on the market. This is possible because Mike and his team are able to get first or early pick of the best new coin deals in the industry and use that to the advantage of our customers. What does that mean for you? It means that you get your choice of the best possible options rather than the leftovers some dealers have to settle for.
When you buy gold from First Fidelity Reserve, you can rest assured of the quality and authenticity of your purchase because we partner with a true gold and rare coin expert. It’s Mike’s passion to make sure that each and every customer gets the very best information possible so that they can make the best decisions regarding their gold investments. Just look at it this way: Mike literally wrote the book that other dealers read — in fact, he’s written quite a few.
So, before you buy from any other dealer, we ask that you consider the competitive rare gold coin prices offered by First Fidelity Reserve and America’s Gold Expert, Mike Fuljenz.
How You Can Buy Gold From First Fidelity Reserve
Many experts have suggested that 5%-25% of your total portfolio should consist of physical gold. At First Fidelity, we try to make that not only possible, but relatively simple to do.
Buy Common Gold
If you’re looking for common gold coins, rounds, or bars, we couldn’t make it any easier. You can visit the First Fidelity Reserve Online Store any time of the day or night to find great prices on our growing inventory. In our online store you’ll find some great gold options, including:
- American Gold Eagles – Current year and common date
- Australian Gold Kangaroo Coins – Current year
- Canadian Gold Maple Leafs – Current year and common date
- Chinese Gold Pandas – Current year
- Gold Bars – Bar weights range from 1 gram to 1 oz.
Buy Rare Common Date Gold Coins
While it’s a great idea to invest in common-date coins, it’s often well worth paying extra for rarer coins. That’s especially true of high-grade, better-date gold coins. Rare coins have numismatic value — i.e. value to coin collectors — on top of the intrinsic value of their precious metal content. The expertise of Mike Fuljenz is indispensable when considering the purchase of rare gold coins because seemingly small differences in grade and relative rarity can multiply the value of a single coin.
Fidelity sells a variety of coins that qualify as mint state, common date rare gold coins including:
- $2.50 Indian Quarter Eagle – minted from 1908-1929
- $5 Indian Half Eagle – minted from 1908-1929
- $10 Indian – minted from 1907-1933
- $3 Indian Princess – minted from 1854-1889
- $20 Type III Liberty – minted from 1877-1907
- $20 Saint-Gaudens – minted from 1907-1933
If you’re in the market to purchase mint state, common date rare gold coins, it’s vitally important to work with a reputable dealer. To make the most of your investment, we generally buy these coins on a sight-seen, when needed basis. Of course, the pricing and availability of these coins can change quickly, so you can lock in your quoted price by making sure that payment is received by First Fidelity within 48 hours of your order verification. Some of these coins can be purchased online, but others require a phone call to one of our specialists in order to make sure that you get the right investment for you.
Make Rare Gold Investments
The last type of gold we want to discuss here are Rare Gold Investments (RGI). Rare mint state gold coins typically necessitate a relatively high investment, but can yield an extremely high return. From 1970-2015, the price of other types of gold investments went up between 2,063% and 3,251%. A return of that magnitude is impressive, but RGI returns for that same time period were at 9,871% — nearly triple the next highest rate of return.
That’s why Mike Fuljenz and First Fidelity recommend specific rare coins be invested in for our Gold Expert Advantage Portfolios, but these coins aren’t something you should make a simple online purchase for. Instead, we will work directly with you to create a tailor-fit portfolio. Some of the rare coins we invest in are:
- Type II Liberty Double Eagles
- Type III Liberty Double Eagles
- Indian Head Gold Coins
- Select Gold Commemoratives
- $25 Gold American Eagles
Investing in gold bullion — whether it’s coins, rounds, or bars — is a great idea. And when you buy gold from First Fidelity Reserve, we can help you make the most of your investment by helping you find the RGI that is right for you. Let’s get started today!
