Tuesday 10 August 2010

As part of the 2010 Sydney Coin, Banknote and Stamp Show, hosted by the Australasian Numismatic Dealers Association (ANDA), The Perth Mint will host four key-note speeches from some of the country’s most prominent bullion and numismatic experts.

Following the success of their appearances at the Melbourne ANDA Show in July, these experts are back to captivate Sydney audiences with an introduction to a range of alternative investment options.

Perth Mint Senior Analyst, Bron Suchecki, will outline the different options available for bullion investment including coins and bars, certificate programs, storage options and the Australian Stock Exchange.

Economic and monetary historian and CEO of Bullionmark, Mark van der Sluys, will give a not to be missed two-part presentation covering the subjects of ‘Gold as Money’ and ‘The Role of Gold in an Investment Portfolio’.

Andrew Crellin, Managing Director of Sterling and Currency and renowned industry author, will provide an introduction to his new book titled ‘Trading Coins for Wealth’, written to give an insight into how successful collectors approach their craft.

Last but not least, Managing Director of The Rare Coin Company, Rob Jackman, will also give investors the benefit of his 26 years experience in the industry with a seminar on the intricacies of investing in rare coins and banknotes for private portfolios.

Mr Suchecki will draw on his 16 years experience in the precious metal markets to dispense away with some of the pretension regarding gold investment and present the cold, hard, albeit glittering facts.

“There has been talk of a new ‘gold rush’ for quite some time now, so I want to provide new investors with some insights on how to invest that will cut through a lot of the misinformation surrounding gold at the moment,” Mr Suchecki says.

“Topics will include where to buy gold, the argument of coins versus bars, storage options, certificate programs, gold ETF’s on the Australian Stock Exchange, and privacy and security considerations.”
