?Our new division will focus on new markets and customers who are private collectors or people looking for alternative investment opportunities,? said Steven L. Contursi, president of Rare Coin Wholesalers. ?Chris Cipoletti is the ideal person to oversee Rare Coin Consultants of America. He?s knowledgeable about the numismatic marketplace; he?s a strategic, visionary thinker, entrepreneur and motivator.?
According to the statement, the new division will have a strong presence at financial services and investment trade shows.
?We?ll be working with financial planners and investment advisers as well as individuals,?

These are people who are looking for a strong investment vehicle that is fascinating to own while it produces returns,? said Cipoletti.
