Philip Diehl has had an interesting career. He is one of the very few people in American history whose resume notes “Director of the U.S. Mint” as previous work experience. In the present day, Diehl is acting as president of U.S. Money Reserve, one of the top providers of gold coins in the world. With such an interesting career history, Diehl makes a great talk show guest. Recently, he was asked to talk about gold coins on the EPN podcast network.
The popularity of investing in gold grew dramatically over the past ten years. Not all gold assets are the same. Yes, they do have to maintain a certain level of purity to be legitimate investment items. Gold coins are different from bullion and bars. Coins produced by the U.S. Mint are legal tender. A coin’s value is backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, and this makes them appealing to investors.
According to prnewswire, Diehl points out his tenure at the U.S. Mint opened his eyes to the great value of precious metal coins. Under Diehl’s tenure, the U.S. Mint opened a host of distribution channels all throughout the world. Previously, the U.S. Mint dealt mostly with distribution channels exclusively in the United States. Meeting the strong demand for gold coins throughout the globe left Diehl with a better understanding of what buyers are interested in. He also knows how to logistically sell and move gold throughout numerous markets. Bringing such experience to U.S. Money Reserve definitely helps the company growth in the precious metals sales market.
U.S. Money Reserve is based in Austin, TX and has facilitated hundreds of thousands of gold, silver, and platinum coin sales. The research department puts a great deal of effort into acquiring only high quality coins for resale. Sales representatives work carefully with customers to make sure those customer by the coins best suited for their needs.
In the podcast, Diehl mentions he makes good customer service a guiding principle employees and executives should follow. In doing so, the company can meet its mission and help investors build up their portfolios.
