Once prospective precious metals investors have evaluated their finances and determined their short-term and long-term needs and expectations, they will benefit enormously from the service, selection, and savings that are available through a reputable, large-volume precious metal exchange. These types of exchanges handle the gold transactions for financial institutions like insurance companies and banks, and their enormous transactions allow for large-volume, “wholesale-type” precious metal discounts. Today’s household investors can receive the same type of discounts by investing through a reputable precious metal exchange, as opposed to falling prey to the outrageous retail prices that are being charged by local gold dealers near you.
By conducting business with a large volume precious metal exchange, investors can compile real savings on bullion items like 24-karat bars with reputable brand names like Engelhard, and/or Johnson Matthey. Other bullion items include 22-karat coins like American Eagles, and South African Krugerrands, or 24-karat coins like Canadian Maple Leafs, or American Buffalos. Bullion is traditionally used as a short-term profit vehicle, or as a diversification for more costly rare coins like Double Eagles.
Double Eagle coins are rare, $20 Lady Liberty, and $20 Saint Gaudens, 22-karat gold coins, which are historically proven long-term, safe haven assets. Double Eagles possess nearly a full troy ounce of pure gold (.9675 ounces), but they are sought the world over for their numismatic value, which generally tends to appreciate over time. Investors are encouraged to complete their research, and then to contact one of our friendly specialists, who offer institutional discounts to household investors like you.
