All Things Real Estate: Second Hour - December 23, 2018
In the second hour of the show—and continuing the “gift-giving” theme from the first hour of the program—join Rey for a very special interview with Philip Diehl, currently the President of Austin, Texas-based U.S. Money Reserve, which sells gold, silver and platinum coins to investors and collectors. In 1994, Philip served as the 35th Director of the United States Mint, in the launch of the 1994 World Cup Commemorative Coin program. At that time, Rey served as Commemorative Coin Program Director for the U.S. Organizing Committee when it staged the 1994 FIFA World Cup, soccer’s world championship hosted for the first time in the United States. In the spirit of holiday “gift-giving” in the future, Rey and Philip will discuss how they are once again partnering to offer a game plan for offering U.S. Mint-struck legal tender commemorative coins for consumers around the world, when the 2026 FIFA World Cup returns to the United States. This 48-team world soccer championship tournament will be staged in 16 different cities in the United States, as well as in Canada and Mexico. When Philip served as Director of the United States Mint, he was also overseeing the creation of the 50 States Quarters program; the nation’s first platinum coin, the Platinum Eagle; and, the Sacajawea dollar coin. He also served as chief of staff of the U.S. Treasury Department and director of the Senate Finance Committee.
