The Industry Council for Tangible Assets (ICTA), has long been regarded for their position in the marketplace as the “watchdog” for rare items. The sale of gold bullion among coin dealers, melters, and refineries calls for careful scrutiny of what takes place on a daily basis.

The perspective was viewed as making it difficult for customers to buy gold bullion or silver when desired. Many states have attempted to impose a high tax on gold, causing many to shy away from stockpiling gold and silver in the case of an emergency.
Diehl has now passed the bill that he and his committee have come up with, and they are now saying that this was “the most ambitious legislative effort that the ICTA had ever undertaken at the state level.” He was able to get the statute reformed, and Diehl has used his vast experience in Washington to bring positive change to the bullion marketplace.
Diehl has a lot to bring to the table for any council he becomes a part of. As the Director of the U.S. Mint, and as a legislator in Washington, Diehl is the right man for the job for the ICTA.
