Precious Metal Market

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

21st Century technology has jaded multitudes of investors into thinking that the precious metal market is a high-risk, unorthodox, extremist venture, when in fact it is a historically proven, beneficial safe haven market throughout even the worst of economic conditions. It is also true that during stretches of economic prosperity, the precious metal market is rather dormant, and also why gold prices historically tend to rise when our economy is failing. Many of today’s investors are paying a high price of entering the precious metal market, as the gold spot price has repeatedly outdone itself with new all-time record highs. Our economy is presently in such bad condition however, that most people believe that the spot price has far greater heights to reach before economic order is eventually restored.

Long-term wealth preservation is the primary concern for the vast majority of today’s household investors, and Double Eagle coins are among the most coveted long-term precious metal investments. Double Eagle coins are rare, 22-karat, $20 Lady Liberty, and $20 Saint Gaudens gold coins, which contain nearly a full troy-ounce of pure gold (.9675 ounces). Their rare coin status distinguishes them as irretrievable through government confiscation, and their numismatic value has appreciated dramatically throughout past economic recessions. Many of today’s investors are diversifying their Double Eagle holdings with bullion coins like 22-karat American Eagles, so less expensive bullion coins can be liquidated for short-term spot price gains while more valuable Double Eagle coins appreciate. Investors can receive institutional discounts on their American Eagle bullion, and Double Eagle rare coin by contacting one of our friendly specialists, who offer these discounts to household investors like you.

Purchasing Precious Metals

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

Purchasing precious metals like gold bullion and rare coin has always been a beneficial strategy for long-term financial stability and safety, as well as for earning potential short-term gains. Bullion items like one-ounce and ten-ounce bars and coins generally carry prices that are slightly higher than the current gold spot price, which is the cost of one troy-ounce of pure gold. Bullion’s relative affordability (compared to rare coin) is due to its’ absence of numismatic value, and bullion buyers are purchasing precious metals items like 22-karat American Eagle bullion coins, as well as reputable brand-name bullion bars from companies like Engelhard, or PAMP Suisse. All of these items are ideal for potential short-term gains, or for long-term rare coin diversifications.

Precious Metal Purchase

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

Precious metal investing can seem to be initially overwhelming, but household investors soon discover that making a precious metal purchase is a methodical process that begins with a thorough evaluation of each investor’s finances. The process culminates with a well-devised precious metal purchase that is customized to the individual needs and expectations of each investor. There are plenty of new faces in the gold investment picture now, especially since the spot price of gold has continued to set new record highs throughout the past four weeks. These “Johnny and Janie-come-lately” investors must decide if they wish to emphasize their focus on bullion or rare coin, as bullion is ideal for short-term profit gains, while rare coins are proven to secure wealth over the long term.

Today’s growing economic turbulence has convinced a great many of today’s investors to forego the short-term profit game for long-term financial security, and to make a precious metal purchase in rare coins like Double Eagles. Double Eagles are $20 Lady Liberty and $20 Saint Gaudens, 22-karat rare coins. They were minted from 1850 and 1907, and from 1907 to 1933, respectively, and each type of Double Eagle coin contains nearly a full troy ounce of pure gold. Their impressive precious metal content is secondary to their numismatic value, which has historically appreciated dramatically during long-term inflationary periods like the one we are presently encountering. Bullion investments like 22-karat American Eagle modern coins make ideal short-term diversifications, as they are far less expensive and therefore less complicated to liquidate if need be. Investors can avoid paying outrageous retail prices for their American Eagle bullion and Double Eagle rare coin by contacting one of our friendly specialists, who offer institutional discounts to household investors like you.

Precious Metal Spot Price

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

The four major investment grade precious metals are silver, palladium, gold, and platinum (in ascending order of worth), and each has its’ own precious metal spot price, which represents the cost in dollars of one troy ounce of that metal. A troy ounce represents one-twelfth of a pound, rather than the one-sixteenth of a pound that we Americans still use. It originates from the Ancient Roman monetary system, and remains the basis of global precious metals trade to this day.

Gold has the precious metal spot price that is most influential to our global economy, as it backs the value of all printed currency in existence. Naturally, when the value of printed, or “fiat” currency comes into question (ironically enough, due to massive overprinting), gold’s precious metal spot price historically rises. Conversely, when the economy is thriving, spot prices decline, and thus the cycle of borrowing, lending, and investing begins anew. There doesn’t appear to be any redemption for dollar values coming any time soon, so practical investors are converting their wealth into physical gold investments like bullion bars and coins, and rare coins like $20 Lady Liberty, and $20 Saint Gaudens, 22-karat gold coins.

Since these rare $20 coins possess numismatic value, their prices are much higher than bullion coin prices that hover just above gold’s current precious metal spot price. Bullion coins like modern, 22-karat American Eagles are popular diversifications for long-term rare coins like the aforementioned $20 rare coins, which are also known as Double Eagles. Investors can avoid paying exploitive retail prices for their American Eagle bullion and rare Double Eagle coins by contacting one of our friendly specialists, who offer institutional discounts to household investors like you.

Cost Of Precious Metals

Monday, November 16th, 2009

The cost of precious metals is a reliable economic indicator for investment trends. Precious metals prices historically tend to rise throughout long-term cycles of economic turbulence, particularly when dollar values no longer pack their normal punch. These very factors are presently assaulting every American’s financial front line, and levelheaded investors are taking advantage of the rising cost of precious metals investments like rare gold coins, because they are proven safe haven assets. The cost of precious metals investments like rare coins such as $20 Lady Liberty, and $20 Saint Gaudens, 22-karat gold coins, are far greater than bullion coin investments, because bullion possesses no numismatic value like rare coins do.

Investors who are concerned about protecting their wealth while our economy undergoes a much needed overhaul are using Liberty’s and Saint Gaudens coins as long-term investments, because their numismatic value generally tends to appreciate during economic trends like the ones we are currently experiencing. It’s looking more and more like these trends will continue for some time to come, and the cost of precious metals will continue to reflect these trends until economic balance is restored. The aforementioned coins, which are also known as “Double Eagles” are historically proven to appreciate exponentially, so investors are buying these coins for long-term holding periods, and diversifying with bullion coins like 22-karat American Eagles, for short-term liquidations. Investors can avoid paying eye-popping retail prices for their American Eagle bullion, and Double Eagle rare coin by contacting one of our friendly specialists, who offer institutional discounts to household investors like you.

Precious Metal Cost

Friday, November 13th, 2009

In the realm of serious long-term and short-term precious metal investing, precious metal cost refers to the price of rare coins and bullion bars and coins, whose values fluctuate along with the current gold spot price, which is the cost of one troy ounce of pure gold. The gold spot price has been the belle of the world market ball for nearly four weeks running, with multiple record-setting displays that have required remarkably short profit-taking recovery periods. Gold’s high was a modest $1111. at around noon EST on Friday, but economists and investors are gaining confidence in the gold market, while dollar values grimly cling to a superficial existence.

There are billions of overprinted U.S. dollars in circulation, and their value is growing more speculative by the minute. More and more parallels are being drawn between today’s economic dilemmas, and the Great Depression, and although nobody wants to see a full-blown panic, Independent minded investors are adapting a Spartan mindset to their financial principles, and making long-term investments in rare coins, and diversifying with bullion to maximize their investment potential.

Precious metal cost between bullion and rare coin is significant, with bullion prices hovering just above the current spot price, and rare coins commanding much higher premiums. Rare coins like $20 Lady Liberty, and $20 Saint Gaudens possess numismatic value, which generally tends to appreciate over time. These rare, 22-karat coins are premier long-term investments, and bullion coins like 22-karat American Eagles make superb diversifications. Investors are encouraged to complete their research, and then to contact one of our friendly specialists, who offer institutional discounts on bullion, and rare coin.
