US Gold Coins

Vintage US gold coins have the advantage of being available in limited supply. Since they are no longer minted, the supply is relatively fixed. There have been several occasions in the past when there has been a run on US double eagles. Remember Y2K and the boom years of 1989 and 1990. The premium for generic gold is currently the lowest seen in years. The negative factors that have caused this (weak economy and oversupply) will not last forever. If a Wall Street firm or some other entity created a trading fund for generic gold coins, the market would literally change over night.
