I really like E Cohen Mint's gold, silver, and
bullion products and recommend you take a look at them. The reason I like them so much is
their offering is truly unique. When dealing with the big popular gold dealers such as
Blanchard and Company,
Northwest Territorial Mint, you find the same
traditional bullion coins. There's nothing at all wrong with these fine dealers or the popular
coins they sell. In fact,
the cornerstone of all gold bullion portfolios is a solid base of
Gold Eagles, and
Maple Leafs. The great thing about
E Cohen Mint is that they offer products to help diversify your gold bullion portfolio once you
have the basics covered.

E Cohen Mint Offers Gold In Small Sizes
E Cohen Mint is a niche mint in New York that offers exotic bullion products. One of their
exotic products that I really love is their small gold coins in sizes of 1/20 ounce, one gram,
5 grains, and 1 grain. Before I go into the benefits of these smaller coins, let's first take
a closer look at the numbers:
1 gram = 0.032 troy ounces
5 grains = 0.01 troy ounces
1 grain = 0.002 troy ounces
As you can see, these are some very small coins! It's not easy to find coins this small anywhere
else. If you look around Ebay, you can find a few other one gram gold coins for sale. When you get
to the five grains and one grain size, however, E Cohen Mint is really the pioneer and mint of choice.
Why You Want To Own Small Gold Coins
Owning small gold coins makes a lot of sense for two reasons. First, gold is at historically high
levels of around $900 per ounce. The price of one troy ounce of gold is so high that it's out of
reach for many individuals. As inflation gets worse, gold will continue to climb. Moreover, gold will
become more mainstream and everyone will want to jump onboard. With an inability to afford larger
coins, there will be a tremendous demand for small coins (and also a shortage). By purchasing small
gold coins from E Cohen Mint, you are preparing yourself for this shortage so you can later capitalize
on it and not get left behind.
The second reason to purchase small gold coins is for bartering purposes. In the unfortunate event
of a dollar collapse, we will be forced to barter with precious metals. With a purchasing power of
$900 dollars in current dollar terms, one ounce coins are just too valuable for everyday purchases.
The one gram, five grain, and one grain coins, however, are absolutely perfect. Gold is my
favorite precious metal because of its portability. You can store a huge amount of wealth in a
very small area. The small E Cohen Mint coins are very small but pack a lot of wealth into
their small area.
Other E Cohen Mint Products
I also suggest taking a look at E Cohen Mint's silver and
copper bullion products. I'm super excited
about copper these days. It's definitely not gold or silver and takes up a ton of space but is an
up and coming investment metal. Prices of copper have been rising quickly with no signs of turning
back. Cohen gets it when it comes to copper and offers bars in a variety of sizes. Copper bars make
great gifts too!
More About E Cohen Minting
I am fascinated with this mint and following are some of the details I have compiled. E Cohen
was started in 2004 as a small private mint in New York. They have a very interesting process
they leverage to mint gold and silver coins. They sell their coins directly from
their website. E Cohen Minting produces all products using only the finest materials available to
standards of perfection. You may contact E Cohen directly at the following contact info:

Most recently, I have had the privilege of
interviewing E Cohen Mint. I
recommend you check out the interview. In my
interview with E Cohen Minting
we cover countless topics including the outlook for the metals market, copper bullion, the coin
minting process, future new products, and so much more!
My Personal Experience and Purchase
I recently purchased a few coins from Cohen. I could not resist! Specifically, I ordered their
2008 1 gram 24 karat gold coin. Based on the images on their website, this coin looks absolutely
beautiful. For the reasons described above, it is also perfect for me. I'm a smaller investor,
saving very hard for some large upcoming life purchases (1st house down payment), and
cannot afford to splurge on the larger one ounce coins at current levels. The one gram size is
perfect for my investing budget. I also treated myself to two 5 grain gold coins and five 1
grain gold coins.
My order took one month to ship and arrive.
This wait is very consistent with my experience with other online gold bullion purchases. The coins
arrived in a small envelope that was lined with bubble wrap. Within the envelope, the coins were
placed inside a folded up piece of paper. The 1 grain and 5 grain gold coins are enclosed in classic
coin cardboard and plastic staple holders. The holders do a great job of protecting and enclosing
these small gold coins. The 1 gram coin comes in a very small plastic bag. The plastic bag is great
for keeping the coin protected from small dents and scratches since it is a 24 karat gold coin.
Due to all this careful packaging, my coins arrived perfectly. I continue to leave them in
their provided packaging to protect my investment.
I am pleased with my purchase because the coins look even better than in the pictures.
Also, the coins provide an easy way for me to diversify into smaller fractional gold bullion coins.
I recommend E Cohen Mint for both new and seasoned gold bullion (and also copper bullion)
investors. I plan on making more purchases myself. I also recently purchased
nickel bullion bars from E Cohen Mint.
