US Gold and Silver Advisors, talk about some of the advantages to purchasing gold and silver coins - of which are not just a commodity but a money source.
APMEX is NOT a good place to buy from right now...APMEX absolutely has the highest premiums of anywhere i can find other than ebay... They are selling Silver Eagles for 6.80 over spot!!!! Better yet is the fact you won't have your silver in hand until close to the end of the month. Go to your local coin shops folks, if you can't then do some searching because there are WAY better deals than APMEX.Premiums at APMEX is probably one of the highest..
