Co-founder of Renaissance Health Publishing and Co-founder of Wall Street Rebel, the founder of the Gold & Energy Advisor and wunderkind, a self-made millionaire before he turned 21, turning a hobby of coin collecting he began at the age of seven into a multi-million dollar business while still a teenager. Remarkably, James launched his first rare coin business, Gem Coins, in Connecticut in 1976 in Danbury’s North Street shopping complex while he was still a junior in high school.
As the bull market in silver and gold from 1976 though 1980 gained momentum, James was able to generate over a million dollars in profits from less than $25,000 he obtained from his childhood collection. Graduating from Western Connecticut State University in 1980, completing a BA in Economics, he went to work over the following 11 years for some of the most prestigious precious metals and numismatic firms in the world.
James has been frequently quoted as an expert in The New York Times, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, Money magazine, The Chicago Tribune, Time Magazine, AP News, Bloomberg, Barron’s and literally dozens of mainstream online and traditional financial news publications. James has also appeared on the BBC, BBN, FOX’s Cavuto and Company, and Street.com as a precious metals, oil and energy expert.
