Beginners Guide To Precious Metals


As with any venture, knowledge is of the utmost importance.  As we say in this industry, “Buy the book, then buy the coin” – meaning, understand what you’re buying, what it’s worth and how you will eventually get it sold.

The author is a former bank executive of 30 years.  After leaving the world of digital money and fiat currency, he opened a precious metals store in 2010 where he learned the inside tricks and traps of precious metals – real money.

On an almost daily basis, he has “newbie” precious metals buyers come to his store, uncertain about the differences between the various types of precious metals.  What to buy, how much to buy, whether or not to buy, and all of the nuances of markets and money.

The “Chief Instructor” persona kicks into gear, and they get a condensed version of the detailed knowledge you’re about to absorb by reading this e-book.

    Excellent! Who knew why different 1 ounce coins have different prices? Very thorough, so much info. I’ve got to read it a couple of times to let it all sink in. Time to go practice in the real world!

    Without debt in America we wouldn’t have currnecy. The way our money is created is out of thin air and recreated over and over based on a flawed reserve system. I love precious metals.Gold is a great way to hedge against inflation, not necessarily as an investment with real growth potential. Just look at the drop it has taken over the past month. Gold always holds its value against inflation. An ounce of gold today buys a good men’s suit just as it did in 1920, 1940, 1950, 1960, 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000 and 2010. Just check the price history of gold. Real estate used to be similar, holding it’s value against inflation. But the trends in lending, speculation and government interference have caused real estate to lose value against inflation. Self directed IRA’s are great and really do enable the individual investor to chart his or her own course. Wouldn’t be surprised if the Fed’s stop this form of IRA. Wouldn’t want the masses to make their own decisions now would we?

    From an investment theory standpoint, precious metals also provide low or negative correlation to other asset classes like stocks and bonds. This means that even a small percentage of precious metals in a portfolio will reduce both volatility and risk.
