What are Precious Metals?

precious metals investing

Gold, silver, platinum, and palladium are considered to be precious metals because they are rare. Their rarity makes them expensive and difficult to mine and valuable to industries and investors alike. Industries often use silver, platinum, and palladium as key components within appliances, electronics, and car parts. Precious metals – particularly gold and silver – have been chosen by the free market for thousands of years to serve as money. And investors hold physical gold, silver, platinum, and palladium as an alternative asset and to protect against inflation and financial turmoil. Owning precious metals can also be a way to diversify an investment portfolio because it is a non-correlated asset to most other assets.

Gold and Silver Bullion Coins

Precious Metals to Invest In

There are several types of precious metals you can invest in. Each one has its own unique advantages to help you acquire and build wealth for the future. Consider investing in one or more of these coveted precious metals, which have all held value for centuries:

  • Silver Bullion
  • Gold Bullion
  • Platinum Bullion
  • Palladium Bullion
  • Copper Bullion

There are many reasons to invest in gold and/or silver bullion and bars. Today money is backed by the "promises" made by the Federal Reserve and federal government rather than gold. This changed back in the 1930s, which threatens the value of money and ultimately decreases the value of a dollar over time. Buying gold and silver is a way to hedge against the inevitability of inflation.

People have used gold and silver for trading for thousands of years. While gold and silver are not used as a form of money, they are a tangible type of wealth. Gold and silver are recognized internationally. Additionally, the buying power of gold and silver has remained stable while the dollar's value has fallen dramatically. Wherever you travel outside the States, gold and silver have value. This means you really can take it with you!

The value of gold and silver is tangible because there is a limited amount of these precious metals available in the world. Money can be printed and only has the value assigned to it by the government. Gold and silver is a tangible, relatively stable asset that can be securely stored in a safe or vault rather than kept in a bank.

Investors of all types can purchase gold and silver to build their wealth. Small coins and bars are available to people with limited funds. Gold and silver bullion are also excellent gifts for milestone moments in life, such as graduations, weddings and anniversaries. Buy precious metals for all the upcoming events in your life!

Precious Metal to Avoid

Morgan Silver Dollar

There are also precious metals you want to avoid buying as they are a weak investment. At the top of this list are high-cost numismatic coins. These coins contain various metal content and are meant for collectors, not investors. Some numismatic coins will have value, while others are basically worthless as their value will plummet over time, such as certain commemorative coins.

Bullion is what investors want to buy. It comes in definitive weight categories, such as ounces, including 1 ounce, half-ounce, and grams, such as silver and gold bars. Bullion is purchased for investment purposes. It can also help buyer guard their assets from inflation. Bullion comes from the mint each year, while numismatic coins might have been produced decades ago.

Internet ads and late-night television commercials continue to push the perceived value of numismatic coins. Some are attractive to look at and others are like having a slice of history in your hand. But numismatic coins are never a solid investment in your future.

The bitcoin is another controversial investment option. While some people have achieved success by purchasing this cutting edge form of digital currency, others have fallen prey to scammers. Do your research before making any investment to avoid a shady dealer's scam or spam email requests.
