Universal Coin & BullionUniversal Coin & Bullion of Beaumont, Texas was recently recognized as an official rare coin and bullion dealer of the National Rifle Association.

The NRA is best known for its support to defend and maintain the Second Amendment rights of the United States Constitution’s Bill of Rights.

“Being recognized by this 2.8 million member organization which is the foremost guardian of the traditional American right to `keep and bear arms’ is a major honor.” Stated Mike Fuljenz, the president of Universal Coin & Bullion.

Last year, the NRA Board of Directors Meeting in ST. Louis Missouri recognized Universal Coin & Bullion for leadership and distinguished philanthropy with the Voice of Freedom Fund to help permanently endow NRA’s Public Education and Communication Programs.

Mike Fuljenz remarked, “Our recognition by the NRA has been an honor and the result of dedicated work by quality people in both organizations.”

The NRA Board is composed of individuals that represent diverse aspects of firearms ownership, political activism, and the shooting sports. Many of these members have a high level of national visibility.

They have included national entertainment, sports and media celebrities lending their visibility to the NRA cause such as Tom Selleck, Charlton Heston, Ted Nugent, actress Susan Howard, sports greats Karl Malone and David Butz, Oliver North, and director John Milius. There are current and former elected political leaders such as Rep. Bob Barr, Rep. Bill Brewster, Rep. Barbara Cubin, and Rep. Harold Volkmer.

There are national shooting champions such as Edie Reynolds, shooting icons such as the late Jeff Cooper and Soldier of Fortune publisher Bob Brown, and political activists like Marion Hammer and Roy Innis of CORE.

“To be recognized by a Board of Directors of such diversity and with such devotion to maintaining our Bill of Rights’ freedoms is very humbling yet exhilarating honor.” Mike Fuljenz said.

Mike Fuljenz has been the President of Universal Coin & Bullion for 13 years.

National Rifle Association has no place in coin collecting.! They should start thier own hobby of gun collecting! This site is reserved for coin and stamp collecting not gun collecting. To National Rifle Association please go to gun collecting website!

I feel got taken on a 1912 Indian gold coin grade MS63 by UNIVERSAL COIN,
I talked with the one of the managers and he said he would get back with me which he never has. The best price I can find any where is less than 1/2 the price I paid for it. I realize that it is BUYER BEWARE, and I was stupid first time gold buyer,because of the NRA. I hate is see the NRA have their name associated with UNIVERSAL COIN.

By buying gold, the NRA is insuring it’s future. The United states Federal deficit is in the trillions. Our Currency is not backed by gold. How soon do you think it will take until our enemies to see our weakness? It’s already happening. Why did we encourage NATO to participate in Libya? M. Khadafi was trying to compete with the Euro and Dollar. How? With Gold! Imagine what would happen in central Europe, The America’s and worldwide? The dollar would no longer dominate the global economy.

All of my firearms, all of my gold and silver coins (which are inseperate lock boxes) all reside together in my 500+ lb safe. Never heard them complain about the company they keep.
I’ve been doing business with Universal Coin for several years and have no complaints.
And I’ve been an NRA member for at least fifty+ years..
