Why Invest with RCW?

With over 75 years of experience and well over $2 billion in rare U.S. coin transactions, the Contursi family is a recognized leader in acquiring, managing and selling rare U.S. coins. They have been the custodian of 2 of the 3 most expensive United States rare coins and currently maintain the largest active inventory of rare U.S. coins in the world.
Prior to 2008, the Contursi family primarily worked as a wholesaler and supplier to the trade while also working with select private individuals on investment opportunities. After 2008 RCW saw an opportunity to provide value to investors and advisors seeking proven wealth preservation and capital appreciation vehicles. RCW Financial was created to work with investors seeking expertise, insight, and strategy with this uniquely non-correlated alternative asset class.

Ongoing Engagement

Perhaps one of the greatest benefits is the strategic relationship we develop together. It is important to understand that these assets are extremely rare and are not regularly available on the market. Historically, when we sold coins to the trade we would no longer have access to them or have any knowledge of their location. By working with clients outside of our marketplace, we are able to privately place these rarities at a good value and retain knowledge of their whereabouts. This creates future opportunity for the client and RCW. As we become aware of buyers that are actively seeking rarities our clients own, we are able to bring offers to our clients. Although a client’s strategy may be a long-term hold, these events give the clients an option to take advantage of selling opportunities that are in the marketplace as they arise.
