About Us


Who are we?

One of America’s Leading Dealers with Credentials Like No Other

For over 30 years, Tangible Investments has been the premier gallery for collectors seeking the very best in rare coins, precious metals, fine art and jewelry. As a market-leading numismatic dealer and auctioneer, we purchase and sell highly desirable items for very competitive prices.
   
At its heart, Tangible Investments is the business of coin connoisseur Silvano DiGenova, an accomplished grading consultant and antiques marketer. Mr. DiGenova’s reputation within the industry has been built in part on some of the most historically important purchases and distributions in US numismatics, yielding over $2 Billion in transactions. This makes Tangible Investments not only one of America’s most successful rare coin traders, but the top buyer in the country. Mr. DiGenova’s unparalleled credentials--which include designing the grading standards for the rare coin industry--and financial resources have made Tangible Investments a major trendsetter in the market.

Tangible Investments is a member of the prestigious Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG) and the American Numismatic Association (ANA). We are also an authorized dealer for the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), which was co-founded by Mr. DiGenova in the mid-1980s and remains the leading coin authentication and grading service in the world. Among other notable affiliations and achievements, Tangible Investments proudly boasts an A-rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB).

Credentials

Founded by one of the most distinguished numismatists and all-around experts in the US rare coin market, Tangible Investments has been involved in over $2 Billion worth of transactions, many for historically important rarities.

Tangible Investments opened in 1984 when Silvano DiGenova, a rare coin prodigy who single-handedly created the coin grading set used by the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), decided to start his own business. Led by Mr. DiGenova, whose distinguished career has cemented his identity as a rare coin market maker, the buying power of Tangible Investments has resulted in the following landmark purchases

  • Co-purchaser, consultant and minority partner of the Trompetor Proof Gold Collection for $15.2 million. This represents the largest RARE COIN private treaty sale in history at the time.
  • Purchaser of the 1907 Ultra High Relief $20 Gold PR-67 for $1.2 million the highest priced ever realized at public auction for a U.S. gold coin at the time.
  • Buyer of the Jasper Roberson Collection ... over $1 Million!
  • Buyer of the Clifford-Kagin San Francisco Mint Collection ... over $2 Million -- and then later resold for $3.1 Million!
  • Buyer of the Connoisseur Collection ... over $2.5 Million!
  • Buyer of the 1879 $4 Coiled Hair Stella PR65 & PR66 ... over $1.3 Million!
  • Buyer of the 1851 Augustus Humbert $50 Choice Proof ... over $600,000!
  • Buyer of the 1855 Kellogg $50 Choice Proof ... over $400,000!

Mr. DiGenova has long been recognized as an authority on the rare coin market, grading, authenticity, and appraisals.  As such, he has been featured in Fortune Magazine’s “People to Watch,” quoted on the front page of The Wall Street Journal, interviewed in hundreds of US newspapers, and has appeared several times as a commentator on CNN, FNN, CNBC, the Discovery Channel, the History Channel, and more.  But perhaps most importantly, DiGenova’s reputation for honesty and integrity have made Tangible Investments the go-to gallery for professional experts and clients—those seeking to serve collectors and the collectors themselves.

With unparalleled acquisitions and a top-notch staff of numismatists and collectibles experts, Tangible Investments is uniquely qualified to offer the very best in rare coins, precious metals, fine art, and jewelry.  Whichever is your passion, we look forward to working with you to build a personal collection that is as enjoyable as it is financially rewarding.
