Edmund C. Moy has followed the trail blazed by the late former U.S. Mint director Jay Johnson and has endorsed a commercial numismatic firms.
Moy, who left office effective January of this year, became the media spokesperson for Morgan Gold, an Irvine, Calif., firm founded by Steve Deeds.
Morgan Gold said Nov. 8 that Moy will provide his personal endorsement of the firm in radio, television and online advertising campaigns.
The former Mint director will also promote precious metals and their use in Individual Retirement Accounts in interviews with the news media.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Ed Moy to Morgan Gold as our company’s official spokesperson. ... We look forward to working alongside Edmund as he takes the mantle of endorsing Morgan Gold as his personal choice for the purchase of gold as part of an IRA or 401(k) plan,” said Deeds.
One of Moy’s signature achievements at the U.S. Mint involved the creation of the 2009 Saint-Gaudens gold $20, which was struck to the ultra-high-relief specifications that doomed it as a circulating coin issue in 1907. Collectors bought 115,178 of the pieces.
“Since the early 1960s ... Steve Deeds traveled the world buying and selling gold for his investor clients. Steve’s commitment to precious metals has never wavered and he is recognized industrywide for his pioneering vision and for his having delivered billions of dollars in gold throughout his stellar career. Morgan Gold has earned a top rating by the Better Business Bureau, which is why I am proud to work with Steve and Morgan Gold as spokesperson, and to offer my personal endorsement of the company.” Moy said.
