Interest in the precious metal market has increased exponentially over the last handful of years, as ever-growing numbers of investors are converting their so-called “traditional investments” in stocks and bonds, into precious metals investments in rare coin and bullion. These wise investors know that economic trends tend to move in cycles, and feel that the precious metal market is the best way to protect their remaining investment and retirement dollars amidst global economic turbulence and uncertainty. Retirement funds are a very sore subject among investors, particularly among baby boomers, who have worked longer than anyone towards their hard-earned retirement. Traditional IRA’s have literally lost trillions since 2001, and a great many pro-active investors are now turning to the precious metal market to convert their remaining retirement dollars into IRA’s, with U.S. government-approved bullion holdings in the following:
22 Karat American Eagle coins (also available in silver)
24 Karat American Buffalos, which are also available in 1-ounce, ½-ounce, ¼-ounce, and 1/10-ounce denominations. Other 24 Karat coins include:
Karat Canadian Maple Leafs, Australian Kangaroos, Koalas, and Lunar coins, as well as Chinese Pandas.
24 Karat bullion bars, with reputable names like Johnson Matthey, PAMP Suisse, and Credit Suisse.
Any one, or combination of these items can also be used as short-term potential profit investments, as bullion prices tend to stay near the current spot price of gold, and typical holding periods for potential short-term gains range between one and fourteen months.
