Dirty Jobs’s Mike Rowe Shares Journey to Gold Ownership

AUSTIN, Texas, June 5, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Television personality Mike Rowe, best known as the creator and host of Discovery Channel's Dirty Jobs, is exploring the world of gold and how gold ownership works for everyday Americans. In partnership with U.S. Money Reserve, one of the nation's leading precious metals distributors, Rowe sets out to find the answers to questions about gold's role in personal wealth.

“Like a lot of other Americans, I've spent the last few decades working my tail off. And now I'm beginning to realize the value of protecting that money and to better understand how I can do that with physical gold,” says Rowe. “I had questions. I went looking for answers, and I found them at U.S. Money Reserve.”

Joining Mike on his journey is Philip N. Diehl, U.S. Money Reserve's President and 35th Director of the U.S. Mint, and Edmund C. Moy, U.S. Money Reserve's Senior IRA Strategist and 38th Director of the United States Mint.

“Education is something we believe in very strongly at U.S. Money Reserve,” says Diehl. “The better consumers can understand the real benefits of owning physical gold, the more educated decisions they can make regarding their portfolios. Having Mike go through that process and really get an inside view of how gold coins are made and stored will help a lot of people better understand our industry.”

“It's exciting to go on this gold journey with Mike and have a camera crew along to capture it all,” Moy says. “We've gotten access to some really exclusive places, including mints and IRA vaults, and spent a lot of time talking about how everything comes together. I think that anyone who wants to be educated about gold and silver will find this video series really helpful.”

Over the past several months, Rowe has visited one of America's most secure gold and silver vaults, visited Liechtenstein to observe master coin designers at work, and traveled to Germany for a hands-on education in how pure gold is turned into museum-quality coins. 

The latest episodes of “Work Hard. Save Smart.” and behind-the-scenes footage of Mike's journey to gold ownership can be viewed exclusively at www.workhardsavesmart.com.

“I've spent most of my career working with regular people, and I think that there's this idea that gold might be for people who have already hit it out of the park or are very wealthy,” Rowe says. “But for the average family, I've learned gold is real and relevant. I want to share this journey with everyone who wants to learn more, just as I did.”
