(Denver, Colorado) August 7, 2017 – Rare coin and precious metals expert Michael Fuljenz, President of Universal Coin & Bullion of Beaumont, Texas (www.UniversalCoin.com), received an important national award at the recent American Numismatic Association 2017 Denver World’s Fair of Money® for his decades of anti-counterfeiting efforts.  

The Industry Council for Tangible Assets (www.ICTAonline.org) presented him with the Al Kreuzer Memorial Award medal for “outstanding contributions in the efforts to combat counterfeit coins and currency.”

Fuljenz is a long-time member of the ICTA Board of Directors and a member of their recently-formed Anti-Counterfeiting Task Force.  Since the 1980’s he has taught many counterfeit detection and rare coin authentication seminars for collectors, dealers and law enforcement officers.

“I am proud and honored to receive this award, and look forward to additional work with ICTA and other organizations to combat counterfeits and educate the public about the needs to buy and sell rare coins and precious metal bullion coins only with reputable, knowledgeable dealers, such as members of the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG),” said Fuljenz.

Fuljenz is a member of the PNG’s Accredited Precious Metals Dealer program that requires all members to adhere to a strict code of ethics in the buying and selling of gold, silver and other bullion products. He now has won major awards from the four top organizations in the rare coin hobby and profession: the American Numismatic Association (ANA), Numismatic Literary Guild (NLG), Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG) and the Industry Council for Tangible Assets.

2017 NLG Ribbit Award winner David Hall with 2016 winner Mike Fuljenz, are distributed on behalf of Mike Fuljenz and Universal Coin & Bullion.

A strong consumer advocate, he received the prestigious PNG Sol Kaplan Award in 2016 in part for assisting an 84-year man recover the $84,000 he had paid to two unscrupulous dealers who sold him counterfeit American Eagle gold coins. Earlier, Fuljenz assisted a group of New Orleans physicians recover $750,000 after they unsuspectingly purchased counterfeit coins from a local attorney.

Summing up the rare coin marketplace during the ANA show in Denver, August 1 – 5, he commented:

“Really nice coins and important coins were in short supply, and highly desired by leading dealers and collectors at the show. These types of coins often brought impressive prices at auctions this week.   The United States Mint had long lines of customers wanting to buy their new products. The U.S. Treasury Department exhibits by the United States Mint and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing are always popular and educational.”

In addition to receiving an award at the World’s Fair of Money, Fuljenz presented two of them. As 2016 recipient of “The Ribbit,” an important honor presented annually by the NLG for outstanding service to the hobby, he presented the 2017 award to David Hall, co-founder of Professional Coin Grading Service.  “David is one of the top professional leaders of the hobby who certainly deserves recognition for all he has done to promote numismatic education,” explained Fuljenz.

As sponsor of the ANA’s top honor, the Farran Zerbe Memorial Award, Fuljenz co-presented it with ANA President Jeff Garrett to Brian Fanton of Iowa. “Brian surprised me at the ceremony by telling me he recalled how much he enjoyed taking one of my ANA coin grading seminars back in the 1980’s,” said Fuljenz.

Known as America’s Gold Expert®, Universal Coin & Bullion President Michael Fuljenz has won more than 60 prestigious national and regional awards and honors for his consumer education and protection work in rare coins and precious metals.

(Anaheim, California) – Top awards for consumer protection crime-fighting efforts and outstanding numismatic writing were presented to Michael Fuljenz, President of Universal Coin & Bullion (www.UniversalCoin.com) in Beaumont, Texas, at the 2016 American Numismatic Association World’s Fair of Money.  

He received four prestigious honors from two influential organizations, the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG) and the (NLG) Numismatic Literary Guild, during awards ceremonies conducted in Anaheim, California, August 8 through 12.

The PNG presented Fuljenz the Sol Kaplan Award for efforts in combatting crimes against the numismatic community and the NLG honored him with three awards for writing, broadcasting and his strong support of the hobby. The PNG is a nonprofit organization composed of many of the country’s top rare coin and currency experts, and the NLG is a nonprofit organization composed of prominent editors and writers in the numismatic community.

Fuljenz along with co-winners of the PNG’s Kaplan award, former Police Chief Doug Davis and investigative journalist Jerry Jordan, jointly worked for nine months to provide valuable assistance to law enforcement agencies in four states that helped detectives coordinate their investigations into a series of numismatic-related crimes.

Their persistent work successfully led to the arrests earlier this year of three suspected con artists who allegedly targeted elderly victims and their coin collections in California, Colorado, New York and Texas. Fuljenz assisted one of the victims get back the $84,000 he spent on purchasing counterfeit gold American Eagles from two of the suspects.

Davis, the City Manager and former Police Chief of Pantego, Texas, is Founder and President of the Numismatic Crime Information Center (www.NumismaticCrimes.org).  Jordan is Editor of SETinvesigates.com, an online investigative news organization in Southeast Texas.

Michael Fuljenz, America’s Gold Expert®, Makes
Seven “Fearless Forecast” Predictions For 2016

 

Michael Fuljenz, President of Universal Coin & Bullion

Michael Fuljenz, President of Universal Coin & Bullion

Award-winning precious metals and rare coins writer and dealer Michael Fuljenz predicts continued strong public demand for physical gold in 2016 and believes the uncertainty of presidential election politics will help push gold prices higher in the coming year.

(Beaumont, Texas) – Presidential election year politics will disrupt markets, leading to a strong year for physical gold and rare coins in 2016, and a drop in the Dow Jones stock market average, predicts Michael Fuljenz, an award-winning precious metals and numismatic writer and President of Universal Coin & Bullion in Beaumont, Texas (www.UniversalCoin.com).

“Nothing is guaranteed and almost anything can happen, of course, but I predict that new supplies of gold will decline from last year’s levels due to the cost of mining versus the price gold.  However, the public’s demand for physical gold, such as American Eagle and Canadian Maple Leaf gold coins, will rise even higher from 2015’s impressive levels,” Fuljenz stated.

He predicts gold could rise to $1,200 or as high as $1,300 in 2016 depending on the strength of the U.S. dollar compared to other global currencies and the continued strong purchasing of gold by central banks.

Fuljenz emphasizes the long term strength of gold, noting that at the end of 2015, gold was about 270 percent higher than it was in 2000 while the Dow Jones average was only about 50 percent higher.  Compared to 2005, gold was about 140 percent higher and the Dow average was up by about 75 percent.

In his latest weekly, free Metals Market Report, he makes seven “Fearless Forecast” predictions.

  • New gold supplies will likely decline from 2015 to 2016.  This past year was likely the “peak year” of global mining production.  Lower supplies and/or rising demand will lead to higher prices in 2016.
  • The tensions in the Middle East, particularly in Syria and Iraq (vs. ISIS) will escalate. This will push gold prices higher in “spurts” at first, and then more consistently as seemingly isolated terrorist acts take place around the world.
  •  Physical demand for gold will rise from 2015’s record levels, pushing gold higher.  The United States Mint, the Royal Canadian Mint and other global suppliers of gold bullion and gold coins will once again run short from time to time, rationing coins to dealers or delaying delivery, perhaps pushing premiums up.
  • The dollar will peak by mid-2016 and then decline toward the end of the year, in terms of other major currencies , such as the euro, the pound and the yen, pushing gold up in terms of the dollar.  The Fed will likely not raise rates more than once in 2016, due to the deteriorating U.S. economy and the threat of deflation.
  • Rare coins will likely outpace gold bullion in 2016.
  • Politics will disrupt markets, leading to a strong year for gold and rare coins, and a drop in the Dow Jones average. 
  • Wall Street will turn favorable toward gold.

Mike Fuljenz Admonishes Critics Of “In God We Trust” Motto

Mike Fuljenz Admonishes
Critics Of “In God We Trust” Motto

 

Statement by Michael Fuljenz, President of Universal Coin & Bullion (www.UniversalCoin.com) in Beaumont, Texas.

Michael Fuljenz, President of Universal Coin & Bullion

Michael Fuljenz, President of Universal Coin & Bullion

Some critics of In God We Trust may be ignorant of the phrase’s legal history or are deliberately ignoring the rulings of courts and resolutions of Congress.  Regarding the recent controversy about the motto’s placement on police vehicles in some communities, it’s important to remember the patriotic motto has withstood a long line of legal challenges to appear on our money and on government-owned property.

It first appeared on circulating United States coins in 1864 (www.InGodWeTrustOnMoney.com).  It has been on all our coins since 1938, became the only official national motto in 1956 with the signing of legislation by President Dwight Eisenhower, and has appeared on all our paper money since 1966.

Recent court cases include a 2013 ruling when a Federal Court judge in New York dismissed a lawsuit seeking removal of In God We Trust from coins and paper money.  The judge noted that “the U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly assumed the motto’s secular purpose and effect.”

In 2011, the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved a resolution reaffirming it as the national motto and encouraging its display in all public schools and government buildings.

While the motto first appeared on U.S. coins at the time of the Civil War, it actually was inspired by events a half century earlier during the War of 1812.

In 1861, Treasury Secretary Salmon Chase received a letter from a Pennsylvania minister who requested “the recognition of the Almighty God in some form on our coins.”   Chase instructed Mint Director James Pollock to prepare a motto.  Pollock recalled a lyric in the now-seldom sung fourth stanza of The Star Spangled Banner: “And this be our motto – In God is our trust.”  Pollock had the words, ‘GOD OUR TRUST,’ placed on a few experimental patterns being tested in 1861 for proposed new designs for half-dollar and $10 denomination coins.

After consultations and debate within the Treasury Department, the words, IN GOD WE TRUST, first appeared in circulation on a new coin denomination, copper two-cent pieces, starting in 1864.

Useful Information On Type Three Double Eagles In New Reference Book By Mike Fuljenz

Book Includes Proof “In God We Trust”
Motto Inspiration Pre-Dates U.S. Civil War

Type Three Double Eagles cover

Type Three Double Eagles 1877 – 1907 (Second Edition) By: Mike Fuljenz

An important new reference book about a popular United States gold coins series, Type Three Double Eagles 1877 – 1907 (Second Edition), provides beginning and advanced collectors a date-by-date analysis of every coin in the series, historical vignettes and more than 100 full-color photographs.  The book was written by Michael Fuljenz, President of Universal Coin & Bullion Ltd. in Beaumont, Texas, who has won more than 50 awards from the Numismatic Literary Guild (NLG) for his consumer protection and education newsletters and earlier books and articles.

Fuljenz predicts that last year’s wide-spread publicity about the discovery of the Saddle Ridge Hoard “should increase collector and investor interest in this (Type Three Liberty Head Double Eagles) series for a long time.”  The vast majority of the 1,427 gold coins unearthed in the Northern California buried treasure hoard were Type Three Double Eagles.

The new book contains a chart of the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) grades assigned to the hoard coins, and also contains comparisons of PCGS and Numismatic Guaranty Corporation population reports on all Type Three $20 denomination gold coins.

One revealing chapter of the book is described by the author as “the definitive article on the national motto, In God We Trust.” It provides proof the inspiration for the motto actually goes back to the War of 1812, pre-dating the 1860s U.S. Civil War era that many believe was the backdrop for the motto.

Fuljenz provides useful collecting, investing, buying and selling tips as well as historical information and price history about this coin series.  He includes information about counterfeits and consumer protection, such as the 2014 Collectible Coin Protection Act.  Fuljenz assisted the Industry Council For Tangible Assets (ICTA) with lobbying in Washington, DC to get that law approved.

One of the 17 interesting chapters is devoted to “Peter,” an eagle that lived at the Philadelphia Mint in the mid 1800s and inspired coin designs as well as bedtime stories.

Type Three Double Eagles were struck at five mints: Carson City, Denver, New Orleans, Philadelphia and San Francisco.  Unlike Type One Double Eagles, Type Three have the motto, In God We Trust, and unlike Type Two coins the Type Three have the denomination spelled out as TWENTY DOLLARS rather than TWENTY D.

Other noteworthy features of the book include how President Theodore Roosevelt worked with acclaimed sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens on the early 20th century “pet crime” of replacing the design of the Liberty Head Double Eagle and other U.S. coins; Type Three Double Eagles in the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institution; celebrity coin collectors; and law enforcement tips on how to protect your coins and other valuables from theft.

Known as America’s Gold Expert®, Fuljenz has won dozens of prestigious national and regional awards and honors from the NLG, the Press Club of Southeast Texas and other organizations for his consumer education and protection work in rare coins and precious metals.

A respected community leader in his hometown of Beaumont, Texas, Mike also has served with distinction as a consultant to the Federal Trade Commission, United States Mint and Royal Canadian Mint, is on the ICTA Board of Directors and is a member of the Professional Numismatists Guild.

Published by Subterfuge Publishing, the suggested price for Type Three Double Eagles 1877 – 1907 is $39.95 including shipping.  Copies can be ordered online at www.UniversalCoin.com.

Gold’s Long-Term Outlook Remains Positive, Says Michael Fuljenz

December 30, 2014 in Bullion, Coin Dealers, Gold, Gold Bullion, Gold Coins, Investing, News, Precious Metals, Press Releases

For immediate release
December 30, 2014

Paul Stein, (409) 860-9077, for Universal Coin & Bullion

Summary:
Even with a relatively flat year in gold prices in 2014, the outlook for higher, long-term gold prices is still quite positive, according to veteran gold dealer and award-winning newsletter writer, Michael Fuljenz, President of Universal Coin & Bullion.

Gold’s Long-Term Outlook Remains Positive, Says Michael Fuljenz

Michael Fuljenz, President of Universal Coin & Bullion.

Michael Fuljenz, President of Universal Coin & Bullion.(Beaumont, Texas) — “There are five solid reasons why the long-term outlook for gold remains positive and why it may climb to $1,500 an ounce or more in 2015,” stated Michael Fuljenz, President of Universal Coin & Bullion (www.UniversalCoin.com) of Beaumont, Texas, who has been tracking and writing award-winning articles about the precious metals markets for decades.

“Public demand for gold coins was strong during the past year. Despite often negative and sometimes misleading comments on Wall Street about gold, there’s a continuing public demand for gold as a time-proven, long-term investment,” Fuljenz said.

He says there are five fundamentals that should push gold prices higher in 2015.

Central banks around the world continue to stockpile gold. Gold had a great year outside the U.S. Central bank buying accelerated in the second half of 2014, even as gold prices declined in terms of the U.S. dollar. I expect this trend of rising central bank gold buying to continue in 2015.

Lower prices prompted mines to close down. The average cost to mine an ounce of gold is $1168, so many mining operations were closed down when gold fell below $1200. Also, gold recycling fell to a seven-year low in 2014.

Exchange-traded fund (ETF) demand leverages gold’s rise. Throughout most of 2013 and 2014, the Wall Street crowd stayed out of gold, but the Wall Street herd usually invests in what’s hot, selling anything that falls. If gold should turn hot, the Wall Street crowd could again quickly jump on the gold bandwagon. Some hedge funds have slowly turning bullish on gold since this past August.

Demand for gold in Asia is almost certain to go up. India recently relaxed import restrictions and demand for gold continues in China as a currency hedge. Those two countries account for 30 percent of the world’s population, but more than 50 percent of global demand for gold.

The U.S. dollar should either fall or flatten out. That will give U.S. investors an advantage in the gold market.
“It’s a mistake to think that gold tracks inflation each year or month or even decade. Gold does not track inflation that closely. Gold is subject to the buying and selling of market traders, like any investment, but over time gold has proven itself to be an inflation hedge, a deflation hedge and a currency hedge,” Fuljenz said.

“The key for most investors is not to guess about gold’s price or currency trends, but to keep accumulating gold and silver-based investments at these bargain prices.”

He points out that since August 1971, when President Richard Nixon signed legislation allowing U.S. citizens to again invest in and hold physical gold assets, the Consumer Price Index of inflation has gone up about 480 percent while the price of gold has increased more than 3,300 percent.

“So, gold has beaten inflation by almost seven-fold since then. If you track it back to 1913, the year the CPI was started — and the same year the Federal Reserve was born — the CPI is up 23-fold while gold is up 58-fold. Gold has grown 2½ times the rate of inflation the past century.”

Mike Fuljenz has won dozens of prestigious national and regional news media and trade group awards and honors for his consumer education and protection work in rare coins and precious metals. Known as America’s Gold Expert®, he is a respected community leader in his hometown of Beaumont, Texas. Mike also has served with distinction as a consultant to the Federal Trade Commission, United States Mint and Royal Canadian Mint, and is on the Boards of Directors of the influential Industry Council For Tangible Assets and the Numismatic Literary Guild.
