  • (1888PressRelease) September 24, 2013 - Rockville, Maryland - Asset Strategies International (ASI), a DC area precious metals and foreign currency dealer in business since 1982, announced a strategic alliance with professional numismatist and rare coin scholar Douglas Winter. Mr. Winter is widely recognized as one of the world's leading expert on early American coinage.

    "We've dealt in numismatics for the past 30 years," said ASI President and co-Founder Michael Checkan. "Now, after two years of intensive study of the rare coin market, we see strong reasons to offer a Rare Coin Program of well-chosen numismatics through ASI's Rare Tangible Assets.

    "Many of our bullion precious metals clients are also rare coin buyers. We've seen, time after time, abuse by coin marketers who offer our clients the wrong coins at the wrong price. So we intend to change that."

    Mr. Winter has written twelve books on rare coins including the standard reference works on gold coins from the Branch Mints and similar publications on $20 Liberty gold coins, among others. He is a member of the Board of Experts of PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service); a member of PNG (Professional Numismatists Guild); and a minority owner of CAC (Certified Acceptance Corporation).

    "I have worked quietly with ASI for the past two years. It's a unique company with perhaps the finest reputation in the field of precious metals and foreign currencies. I'm looking forward to building fine portfolios of classic rare coins for their clients," said Mr. Winter.

    "Our approach is not based on 'selling coins.' Instead, we're providing a rare coin program strategy that positions our valued clients for success in the future. We are now well-represented at all major coin shows and auctions by Doug Winter, who gives our clients access to the finest rare coins personally selected by one of the leading experts in the field," Mr. Checkan concluded.

    Other key members of the ASI Rare Coin Program team include Jon Swyers, who has worked "hands on" for the past seven years in retail coin sales with a specialty in numismatics; and Steve Emerick, who trained in numismatics under ASI's co-Founder and resident coin expert, the late Glen O. Kirsch, and now oversees the operations of the Rare Coin Portfolio program.
