Precious metals are better looked at as a vehicle for safeguarding wealth rather than as an investment. There is ample evidence that the gold and silver markets are manipulated, and these markets have become mere extensions of the fiat-dominated, central bank-controlled world fiat economy.

    A paper currency crisis would expose the disconnect between paper metals contracts and physical gold & silver, and could cause a massive spike in the gold price. However, such an apocalyptic event should not be viewed as an investment opportunity; rather it should be seen as a hypothetical situation which would warrant owning some physical precious metals at today's low prices in case it is needed in the event of a catastrophe. It is possible we may not witness such an event in our lifetimes. It could also happen tomorrow.

    Precious metals are unique in that they can't be frozen in a bank account or confiscated; they can't be printed into oblivion; and most important, they are finite in quantity. While a central bank has the power to destroy a paper currency in 24 hours, no-one on Earth has the power to reduce the intrinsic value of physical precious metals.

    The situation in Puerto Rico after hurricane Maria should demonstrate the importance of holding hard physical assets such as gold and silver. The electric grid was wiped out. Most of the island is still without electricity, internet and water. Without electricity there is no ATM machine, no Bitcoin. In a nutshell, the catastrophe that Puerto Ricans are suffering today is a microcosm of what an economic collapse could look like if it ever happened worldwide. When the island went dark during the storm, only physical objects were (and still are) the only truly valuable assets. Gold, silver, even cigarettes become a currency in this situation. When 99% of the things we take for granted as having value on a daily basis (debit cards, credit cards, smartphones, IRAs, stock investments, etc...) disappear in a matter of seconds you realize what sorts of objects have true value.

    This is why you should not approach precious metals as an investment. It's better to consider gold and silver as catastrophe insurance. Investing in paper gold and silver futures is akin to playing the stock market. Precious metals are a long-term game to safeguard your wealth, and if central banks do not get their debts under control, you could see your wealth grow exponentionally in the event of a fiat crisis.

    The coin in question is a Ludovico coin from 15th-century Milan. An authentic gold specimen is probably worth thousands of dollars depending on condition.

    However, the specimen in the images looks to be a copy made for jewelry. Authentic renaissance pieces are nearly impossible to find in such good condition. The minting also looks too precise for it to have originated in 15th-century Italy.

    If you want to be sure you could take it to an ancient coin specialist.

  • The silver content alone is worth about $13 at current spot prices. In decent condition you may get $20-$30 for it.

  • Christie, first you would need to see if the penny sticks to a magnet. If so, depending on whether it is a 1943 or 1944, you can continue verifying its authenticity. Please see this forum post for more information: https://coinvalues.com/forum/1944-wheat-penny#reply-6

  • Brittney, these are quite common and probably will not fetch more than ten to twenty cents, barring the unlikely case that your specimen is of the steel variety. Please have a look at our 1944 Wheat Penny info page for more info.

    Your best bet for selling is a local coin shop as the logistics of listing it on eBay are not worth it given the low value of the coin.
