About the author
Gleason is president of Money Metals Exchange, a national precious metals investment company and news service with over 300,000 readers and 100,000 paid customers. He launched the company while president of a national newsletter publishing company dedicated to helping subscribers protect their freedoms, assets, and privacy.
He founded Money Metals Exchange in 2010 in direct response to the abusive methods of national advertisers of “rare,” collectible, and numismatic coins who mark up their coins to 50%, 100%, or even higher above their actual melt value. Money Metals believes the average investor should never purchase precious metals that are not priced at or near their actual melt value. The rare coin market is only suitable for highly experienced collectors with money to blow.
Gleason currently leads marketing, publishing, and real estate companies as well. Previously, Gleason served as Vice President of the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation in Springfield, Virginia. Gleason is a graduate of the University of Florida with a BA degree in Political Science.
Gleason has frequently appeared on national television shows and networks such as Fox News Channel's O'Reilly Factor and Special Report with Brit Hume, CNBC's Closing Bell, Christian Broadcasting Network, CNN, and C-SPAN's Washington Journal. He has frequently been interviewed on national radio shows such as the Lars Larson Show, Michael Reagan Show, G. Gordon Liddy Show, and Ken Hamblin Show. Gleason's commentaries have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Detroit News, Washington Times, and National Review, among thousands of other national, state, and local newspapers, wire services, and Internet sites.
