Former U.S. Mint Director Jay Johnson has become a spokesperson for precious metals company Goldline International, Inc., the firm announced June 29.
“As a former Director of the United States Mint, I believe strongly in the importance of owning gold as part of a diversified portfolio,” said Johnson. “That’s why I’m proud to endorse Goldline, which has been helping people acquire gold and other precious metals for nearly 50 years.”
During his term as the 36th director of the U.S. Mint, Johnson managed the multi-billion dollar manufacturing business for the U.S. government. Under his supervision, the Mint produced a record 26 billion coins in the fiscal year 2000-2001, along with a record “‘profit” of $2.6 billion, according to Goldline.
Johnson is also a former U.S. congressman from Wisconsin and a longtime award-winning news broadcaster. He is also a recipient of the American Numismatic Association’s Presidential Award.
“Jay Johnson has a distinguished career in public service and we are proud that he has chosen to represent Goldline as his choice for gold and other precious metals,” said Mark Albarian, Goldline president and CEO. “During these unsettled economic times, we believe it’s especially important for people to learn more about diversifying their portfolios with gold coins.”
