Legendary country and gospel music singer and songwriter Larry Gatlin talks about owning gold in a video on the redesigned website of precious metals and rare coins dealership 1st National Reserve ( of Beaumont, Texas.

In the brief, entertaining video, Texas native and 1st National Reserve customer Gatlin explains he should have followed the recommendations of financial advisors to purchase gold when it was about $300 an ounce in 1979 after the success of his #1 hit song, "All The Gold In California."

Instead, he explained in September, "I bought horses and cows and cars and guitars and a lot of other stuff. I mean, a lot of other stuff. Now, gold is over $1,900 an ounce while the horses are dead, the cows are dead, the cars won’t run and the guitars are, well, just guitars. The bad news: I didn’t buy gold. The good news: now I own gold and I’m going to buy more from the experts at 1st National Reserve," he states.

In addition to the video, the new website provides up-to-date listings about the company’s current precious metals and numismatic offerings for online shopping as well as useful information about the enjoyment of coin collecting.

"We’re committed to increasing transparency and clarity in our offerings while remaining at the forefront of the evolving collectible coin marketplace. We feel confident that our new website will be a powerful tool to showcase our distinctive gold and silver bullion and rare coin offerings, and help interested parties make informed decisions when choosing to buy numismatic and precious metals products," explains Ryan Verde, 1st National Reserve’s Manager.

"Our site’s information on coin buying, coin grading and other numismatic subjects is substantial. We pride ourselves on providing a large amount of informative, award-winning content relative to the coin and bullion market to help prospective collectors learn more about the hobby of coin collecting," adds Verde.

Any coin company whose name contains words that lend themselves to a misinterpretation that the company is a government agency, words such as “national reserve”, makes for suspicions.

I have lived in Texas most of my 58 years & 4 different times in my life & I have never heard of this company & I buy a lot of rare coins & bullion from nationally-known companies that don’t need to pay a celebrity a high fee to sell their overpriced coins & precious metals! Notice that this press release does not list among this companies’ memberships the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG) the highest level of numismatic businesses.… Read more »
