The article appears in today's online edition of on the first page of MSN Money, at the following link: The article appears in the Reader's Choice section, by clicking on "What's rising faster than stocks? Coins."

The article, which covers the grading system for rare coins, the risks involved in rare coin investing and the comparative disadvantages of investing in gold bullion, notes that the CU3000 Rare Coin Index has handily outperformed the stock market since the peak of the dot-com bubble five years ago. "The index, which measures the value of the 3,000 most actively traded coins, has increased about 20% over the past five years, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has dropped more than 5% and the Standard & Poor's 500 index has declined at least 20% during the same period."

Mr. DiGenova is cited in the article as saying he doesn't believe anyone should make a true investment in coins with less than $10,000, because "coins that are worth the investment can cost several thousand dollars apiece."
