About First Fidelity Reserve

It was back in January of 1988, that a little coin company was born in Beaumont, Texas. That year, the American public was extremely excited by the fact that the US Mint was once again minting gold and silver. With not much more than pure determination, encouragement from family and friends, and a little money from investors, First Fidelity Reserve began its journey on its long road to success.

First Fidelity Reserve quickly began to carve a niche in what had always been considered a largely speculative bullion arena. While all its competitors were selling any and every coin on the market, First Fidelity Reserve realized that by incorporating a more laser focused approach to precious metals, it could offer its clients the comfort of a long term strategy without having to worry about every up and down the raw metals market might endure.

With this, they began to specialize and serve as the Market Maker in rare and certified United States coins, such as Type II and Type III Liberty Double Eagles, the historic $3 Indian Princess and the renowned Indian Head designs of the early 1900's, as well as key date numismatic treasures in the Gold and Silver American Eagle family of coins, among others.

Over the course of the next two plus decades, First Fidelity Reserve has served tens of thousands of rare coin collectors and investors all across America. By concentrating on distinct areas of rare coins, they have been able to continually provide their clients with a tightly focused approach, while providing support to the markets for the coins they recommend.

Between our Numismatic professionals, consultants and buying teams we use our more than 50 years of cumulative experience to help insure our clients get the absolute best service we can.

Since then, we have doubled our sales, service and numismatic staff to improve and enhance the service we provide to our roster of clients.
