One could argue that US. $20 St. Gaudens Gold Coins are one of the best portfolio choices for asset preservation/safety-net oriented owners. Owners seeking portfolio protection will appreciate the fact the these coins, while trending directly with the spot price of gold over time, also participate in the periods of premium expansion seen during ‘flight to safety episodes’ - the most recent of which occurred during 2008/09 financial crisis (see graphs below). Such 'double-barrel' profit potential is only accentuated by the $20 St. Gaudens' historic (pre-1933) designation and the associated insulation against the possibility of future government intervention.
Explaining further, $20 gold pieces are a unique combination of one of the safest and most liquid forms of gold ownership, but also potentially one of the most lucrative - specifically in situations that safe-haven investors describe as the scenarios in which they are most likely to rely on their gold positions. For example, individuals who purchased BU $20 St. Gaudens in May of 2008 would have enjoyed a doubling of their investment by December 2009, during which the gold price itself had only appreciated $250/oz.
Uncirculated $20 St. Gaudens, like all graded $20 gold pieces, saw cycle lows in terms of their premiums to underlying gold value in 2019. Due to broad increases in physical gold demand over the past year, premiums on the Uncirculated $20 St. Gaudens have once again turned upward, but remain attractive by historical standards.
