CoinStats is the best investment tool for rare coin investors

Exclusively for clients of Mint State Gold (a div of Stuppler & Co)

CoinStats is an investment tool that enables numismatic investors and collectors to maximize their return when selecting rare coins. Through in-depth statistical analysis of popular rare coin series, CoinStats identifies the best Value Coins in certified rare coins. We are proud to offer this unique and outstanding investment tool exclusively to our clients.

Why is CoinStats so helpful to rare coin investors?

Since 1960, our President and Founder, Barry Stuppler, has been helping develop numismatic investment strategies for thousands of highly successful rare coin investors and collectors. About 15 years ago, based on speaking with a number of rare coin investors who were also active in the stock market, Barry realized that there were many similarities between identifying undervalued stocks and undervalued rare coins. He realized that the similarities between stocks and rare coins could be helpful in forming numismatic investment strategies if he could just harvest and properly formulate the needed information. That’s when CoinStats was born.

Market Cap

Barry started out with the “market capitalization” (market cap) of each coin in the five most popular series of rare U.S. Gold and Silver coins.

For stocks: market cap = number of shares outstanding X price per share.

For Rare Coins: market cap = population X price.
Population is determined by the number of coins graded by NGC, plus the number of coins graded by PCGS; Price is based on the PCGS current list price.

Value Coins

Value Coins are undervalued coins. The first step in identifying undervalued coins is comparing the market cap of coins based on the formula above. CoinStats then goes on to compare the decrease in population of the next higher grade, to the increase in price of that grade. The largest percentage of decrease in population for the next higher grade, combined with the highest percentage increase in price, identifies the Value Coins.

CoinStats Investment Results

As collectors and investors are priced out of the market for the next higher grade, their attention turns to these Value Coins, and the Value Coins prices take off. CoinStats has consistently helped investors outperform even the overall market in investment-quality coins for the past 15 years.

CoinStats is provided FREE of charge to all current clients!

A PQ (Premium Quality) sticker is awarded to rare coins that pass a strict grading standard created by Barry Stuppler, a well-known and highly respected dealer with over 50 years of experience in the numismatic industry. The founder of the PQ Approved sticker, Mr. Barry Stuppler, is a former President of the American Numismatic Association, the country’s largest coin association, where he focused on consumer protection. Barry is also one of the original supporters of the first major grading service, The Professional Coin and Grading Service (PCGS). Barry has a long history of helping collectors and investors to build several of the highest quality and most expensive collections of investment quality rare coins in the world!

Based on Barry’s experience and expertise he has developed a stringent set of grading standards for PCGS/NGC capsulated coins that when met, those exceptional coins are awarded the esteemed GOLD PQ STICKER. The stringent standards for being awarded a GOLD PQ STICKER are based on the strong desirability of these coins to both beginning and experienced collectors/investors in rare coins. Buyers have shown they want well-struck rare coins that have brilliant surfaces and no planchet problems or die defects. This criteria is not considered by other services that offer stickers, and makes finding a coin with a GOLD PQ STICKER a true beauty to have.

When a coin is given the honor of a PQ sticker it ensures that a collector/investor is buying only the highest quality coin, which historically has proven to offer the best appreciation and liquidity compared to similar non-PQ graded coins.

For details, population reports, and coin submission information, please visit the PQ Approved website at www.PQApproved.com.

What is CAC?
CAC (Certified Acceptance Corporation) is a prestigious certification awarded to coins that meet a set of grading standards set by John Albanese with regards to the coins originality. Mr. Albanese is the founder of CAC, a leading member of the numismatic community, and an authority on coin grading.

Why buy a CAC coin?
For quality-conscious collectors, dealers, and investors, a green CAC sticker on an encapsulated coin has significant meaning and CAC coins often command a premium over their contemporary counterparts.
