When is the best time to buy precious metals?

When is the best time to buy precious metals is a tricky question to answer definitively, but in short, it's never a bad time to buy precious metals. Hedging or protecting your hard earned dollars against inflation is always wise. However, like any investment it is ideal to purchase metals during a market lull when prices are low.

Are precious metals a long or short term investment?

Many of our clients want to know whether precious metals are a long or a short term investment.  In our opinion precious metals should be considered to be a long term investment. More accurately, they should be considered to be a type of insurance that will help protect your capitol against economic turmoil and/or inflation.  As inflation increases the cost of mining precious metals also increases, which is reflected in the price value.

Whats the difference between Semi-Numismatic and Numismatic coins?

We've outlined the difference in more detail between Semi-Numismatic and Numismatic coins in our Coin College/Portfolio Product Selection section of our blog.

A: Semi-Numismatic: Coin that are produced in a limited mintage and that factors both the spot price of the metals and the collectibility of the coin into the price of the premium.

B: Numismatic: A type of coin that typically has a higher value then the face value on the coin, due to historical information about the coin.

What is the advantage of Semi-Numismatics and Numismatics over Bullion?

The advantage over Semi-Numismatic and Numismatic coins over bullion is that they are not solely dependent on market price.  Numismatic and semi-numismatic coins have a secondary collectible value in addition to their metal content value.

Why are graded coins worth more than raw/ungraded coins?

Graded coins are worth more than raw coins because there are far fewer of them in existence. This goes along with the fact that in most cases the more rare something is, the more valuable it is.
