About 1st American Reserve

Why Customers Nationwide Choose
1st American Reserve

Our customers typically get first choice from hand-selected, quality coins available on the market because of The Dr. Mike Fuljenz Gold Expert Advantage. With over 40 years of experience in the marketplace and an outstanding personal reputation, Mike and his team get first or early pick of the best of new coin deals in select recommended areas for their customers, which means many other dealers later get the leftovers for their customers.

Quality is assured because coins are selected by a true gold and rare coin expert who has graded and taught seminars for a national grading service. This means every coin you buy is the quality and grade promised.

1st American Reserve carries extensive inventory in their recommended areas so they can consistently deliver some of the best coin quality and value to their customers. Many other dealers don't or can't afford to carry hand-selected inventory, and have to hurriedly order other dealer's leftover inventory when customer orders and payments are received.

As a true Market Expert, Mike is a contributor to leading guide books so you can be assured you are getting competitive value for hand-selected quality coins and service in the select areas that he specializes in. Dr. Mike Fuljenz helps author the guides most other dealers read.

Compared to other dealers, 1st American Reserve typically pays very high buy prices to their customers for coins they routinely sell and need.Because he has so many customers nationwide for select gold coins and his inventory moves quickly, the prices Dr. Mike Fuljenz offers to buy coins often substantially exceed offers from other dealers nationwide. As America's Gold Expert, Mike also typically pays much higher prices for gold coins in select areas he specializes in compared to what customers often net from auctions, which typically include substantial buyer and seller fees.

Dr. Mike Fuljenz is recognized by his peers for his expertise and leadership regionally and nationally.He has won extensive awards from organizations like the Numismatic Literary Guild and Press Club of Southeast Texas. Mike's passion is to make sure that customers are getting the very best information available, to make the best gold decisions possible.
