Platinum, Gold or Silver Bullion Coins
Swiss America offers an array of U.S. and foreign gold, silver and platinum bullion coins. Popular U.S. coins include gold and silver American Eagles and the new gold American Buffalo coins. Swiss America coin investments also sell coins from many, many other countries, such as Argentina, Austria, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Cayman Islands, Chile, China, France, Great Britain, Isle of Man, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, and Switzerland. Pure bullion gold coins are minted by the millions annually and are usually available in one-ounce, half-ounce, quarter-ounce, and tenth-ounce weights.
Bullion coins offer a solid, precious metal hedge from financial uncertainty
and instant liquidity worldwide. But bullion prices can be volatile due to ETFs or short-term speculation and do not offer the privacy of ownership that numismatic gold provides.

Generic Numismatic Coins
Numismatic is defined as "the study and/or collecting of rare coins, medals, and related objects." Generic Numismatics refer to the most popular common-date investment- grade coins, such as the $20 Liberty, $20 Saint Gaudens gold coins and famous Morgan Silver Dollars.
Investment-grade coins (graded Mint-State 62 and above) are traded daily worldwide based on their scarcity, independently certified condition and market demand, thus meeting all of the qualifications for both investors and collectors. Numismatic coins are 100% private and considered one of the few "non-reportable" assets remaining.

Rare Gold Coins
Rare U.S. numismatic coins are true American treasures, highly sought after worldwide because very few coins from the 18th, 19th, and early 20th century have survived in such pristine condition (Uncirculated or Proof mirror-finish).
U.S. rare coins have historically outperformed bullion coins because of their very limited supply and ever growing demand.
