From ancient times to the modern era, investing in Gold Bullion and Silver Bullion has been a popular practice for those looking to diversify their portfolio in hopes of preserving future wealth. There are many options when investing in gold, with some of the most popular beingGold American Eagles,Gold Buffalos andGold First Spouse Coins – as well as othergold bullion from around the world. For those interested in silver, SilverTowne Trademark Silver Bars are very popular with collectors and investors of .999 fine silver. In addition to silver bars (or ingots), you’ll also find a wide selection of silver medallions (or rounds) at SilverTowne.
Another easy way to invest in silver and gold is by purchasing modern coins.Gold American Eagles and Gold Buffalos from the United States Mint are some of the best options, along with gold bullion coins offered by other mints from around the world, includingGold Maple Leafs,Gold Pesos,Gold Krugerrands, and Gold Kangaroos, to name just a few. For silver investments, you can’t go wrong with the Silver American Eagle from the US Mint, one of the most popular bullion coins in the world. There are also numerous modern silver bullion coins available from foreign countries, such asCanada,Mexico,Australia,New Zealand, China and more.
Bullion and Modern Coins are by far the most popular method of investing in silver and gold for those wishing to physically own precious metals, but many people also choose to diversify their collection with other coins. Many collectors consider their numismatic type coins as more of a hobby, whereas some pursue the coins that they believe will make good long-term investments. While these coins can include those with specific dates, mint-marks and other specifications that make them rare, precious metals investors tend to stick with coins composed of 90% silver, including Morgan Dollars,Peace Dollars, Silver Proof Sets and Commemorative Silver Dollars from the US Mint.
