Birth of an Empire: Coins of the Twelve Caesars
IPM Exclusive: The Finest Examples of True Historical Relics
Never before have we been able to offer our clients the ability to own 2000+ year old ancient artifacts. With the announcement from NGC of a program to finally authenticate and grade ancient coins, IPM is exclusively positioned to offer our clients the unique ablity to invest in certified, authentic historical relics. Much like when NGC and PCGS began grading US coins in the mid-1980's, the same situation is at hand with these ancient coins. Savvy investors recognize that getting into markets at the beginning is often wise, and when coupled with the possibility to own something that has spanned millenia, is unprecedented. There have been many ancients in the US market in the past, but up until recently, there was no way to certify their authenticity or condition. IPM has managed to gather the best of the best of these artifacts, typically better than museum quality, for our clients. These are certified authentic, and graded by NGC.
There are 3 different types of sets, spanning gold, silver, bronze, and electrum (a naturally occurring mix of gold and silver). Prices range from "very affordable", all the way into 6 figures. Some of the examples are unbelievable - represented during the time of Nero and the burning of Rome, Tiberius during the time of Jesus Christ, Emperor Titus while the Colosseum was being built, and the list goes on. The history spanning these sets represents the dawn of money, where coins were often minted in the battlefield to pay soldiers. As time wore on, many coins that did survive were defaced as the emperors came and went, or were destroyed, or lost. The sets that we have put together represent not only ultra-rare artifacts, but the very best examples of those that survived this long. Because we have assembled such a diverse group of these examples, anyone can afford to begin their collection.
If your goal is to own something that can be passed down for generations, sets such as these offer you the ability to get into something truly special. Please give us a call at 800-781-2090, or email email@example.com, for your free guide to these and other fine ancient coins.
International Precious Metals Launches Ancient Coin Program
Silsbee, TX July 17, 2015
SILSBEE, TX - International Precious Metals has announced the unveiling of its new, ground-breaking Ancient Coin Program, introduced to provide its clients with an opportunity to obtain the very best high grade gold, silver and bronze ancient coins. In coordination with Ancient Roman coin experts and key organizations, International Precious Metals has assembled 12-coin sets, authenticated by the world renowned grading service company NGC (Numismatic Guarantee Corporation). These sets feature each of the Caesars mentioned in "De vita Ceasarum” (Latin; literal translation: About the Life of the Caesars), commonly known as The Twelve Caesars. “De vita Ceasarum" is a set of the twelve biographies of Julius Caesar and the first 11 emperors of the Roman Empire written by Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus, covering history from 49 BC to 96 AD. The Twelve Caesars is considered very significant in antiquity and remains a primary source of Roman history.
"We vowed to take a leadership position on key areas of the ancient coin market," President and Chief Executive Officer Barry Jepson said. "After years of hard work, we have moved forward with a new program that will aim to develop a strategy of ancient coin collecting that focuses on proper portfolio diversification for our exclusive clientele." He added, "We are excited about the opportunity to present these museum quality works of art to our clients. These rare ancient coins go way beyond numismatics. They are artifacts and historical relics of our pasts and it is truly remarkable that we are able to offer them at such high grades from NGC’s Ancient Coin Division. Many of our specimens are over 2000 years old and are true antiquities. We are very proud to serve an area of the coin market where we believe there is an intense and growing demand from investors and collectors."
International Precious Metals continues to evolve as one of the world’s leading Precious Metals organizations. Last year, IPM secured and graded all four of the 2014 American Eagle Gold denominations "From Mint Sealed Box #1." It marked the first time in the 28-year history of the American Eagle Gold Program that any company acquired all four American Eagle Gold denominations "From Mint Sealed Box #1" at the same time. The celebrated four-coin gold set was released in June of 2014.
