The price of gold has risen a lot since it hit recent lows in December 2015. Therefore, it’s no surprise Eric Dye wanted to interview precious metals expert Philip N. Diehl, president of U.S. Money Reserve, on his podcast on the Entrepreneurial Podcast Network Enterprise Radio show, according to an article published on CBS19.
Diehl is a former director of the U.S. Mint. During his time as its head, he worked to make the agency more entrepreneurial. It launched the 50 States Quarter program.

After leaving the Mint, in 2001, Diehl launched U.S. Money Reserve, and has grown it into one of the largest distributors of precious metals bullion, coins and bars issued by the United States government as legal tender. He also kept up the focus on providing exceptional customer service. U.S. Money Reserve also customers a strong money-back guarantee. Hundreds of thousands of customers have used Money Reserve to diversify their investment portfolios with precious metals.
One advantage of buying Mint-issued gold, platinum and silver is the government guarantees their the authenticity of their contents, weight and purity.
As another example of providing customer service, U.S. Money Reserve has launched a service of holding self-directed IRAs that concentrate on buying precious metals. A self-directed Precious Metals IRA is legal so long as the actual metal is held by an authorized trustee.
U.S. Money Reserve is the only gold company led by a former director of the U.S. Mint.
According to Diehl, four factors have affected the price of gold in recent years. The financial crisis of 2008 made many people flee to the protection of gold. Exchange traded funds or ETFs have become a popular way for people to invest in gold without owning the actual physical metal. However, they are so liquid that they create more price volatility.
