Mike Fuljenz is not just the head of a thriving gold business with clients throughout the United States – though he certainly is that.

Whether a novice or veteran collector of gold coins actually makes a purchase or not, their experience is informed by Fuljenz’s extensive knowledge – and his willingness to share it.
