Gold and Silver INSANITY! How to invest WISELY in 2014-2015. The hidden inflation due to the Fed and Government destroying the value of the dollar may very well lead to hyper inflation. Currently the Best Way to Buy GOLD is to have it in your possession physically, IMO. This includes Silver as well. The market may raise another 10% before a correction, and this is what seduces people. The big money is waiting for the large majority on the sidelines to jump in and that is when they crash will happen. But does this mean you should buy Gold and Silver without THINKING? What PERCENTAGE of your portfolio should it make up? Gold and Silver Bugs may be accumulating a massive percentage but DIVERSIFICATION is still the most important thing you can do to preserve your Wealth. History does not bode well for people that put ALL of their eggs in one basket. Learn about Diversification and how to allocate for your personal portfolio. Learn about the Markets and how to invest correctly for YOU, and then continue to be adaptable to market fluctuations LONG TERM. DIVERSIFY!

Although I have purchased many silver and gold coins through ebay, there are faster, safer and easier ways to do it without getting ripped off ..
I would recommend sticking to American Eagle Bullion & numismatic coins along with some Canadian Maple Leafs or any Canadian Gold or Silver.
Make sure to check out the U.S. Mint at http://usmint.gov - this is a great place to purchase coins if you don't feel like bidding on them.
Also check out the Royal Canadian Mint at http://mint.ca
Remember when purchasing certified coins to Always VERIFY the serial numbers, for PCGS coins http://www.pcgs.com/cert/
NGC Coin certification verification tool for desktop - http://ngccoin.com/certlookup or if you are on an iPhone or smartphone go to the mobile site at http://m.ngccoin.com/certlookup/default

This video discusses the different types of gold and silver you can buy and how to purchase gold bullion. Gold bullion has actually been the number one performing asset class for the last decade. It has had an average yield of better than 15% here in the United States. Gold has typically provided the investor with an opportunity to hedge against the devaluation of paper currency and it is also a quality investment in uncertain financial times. What we are looking at right now is some severe political and geopolitical risk based on our financial system and gold bullion may be one of the best ways for an individual to hedge against these problems that sit out on the horizon.

I consider myself as a investor/stacker, and I have the same strategy... I buy cheap generic silver to sell if the price rises. I also buy some numismatic pieces to sell if the price of those rise... Diversity is the key. If you have all junk silver, and silver nose-dives it will hurt. Rare or certain numismatic pieces tend to increase in price whether silver goes down or not. If I can keep up with the rate of inflation I'll be happy, but lately silver is looking like more of a long term strategy.

Steven Cochran, better known as the "Coin Explorer," is back with another video that helps explain how to buy gold bars, how to choose between the different types gold bars, and what to pay attention to when making a purchasing decision. There are many buyers who are interested in adding physical gold to their holdings or their investment portfolio, but are unsure of the ins-and-outs of how to go about purchasing gold bars without making costly mistakes. Gainesville Coins' enthusiastic expert, the Coin Explorer, offers assistance with how to identify the most trusted brand names in the gold refining industry, how to distinguish different forms of gold bars from one another, and what the key characteristics of gold bars are. Gold bars are highly pure ingots containing at least .995 fine gold, or 99.5% pure gold. However, most gold bars from respected refiners are made of .999 fine gold, meaning that just 1 part per 1,000 in the alloy is a metal other than pure gold. For centuries, gold bars have been the most common and convenient form of gold bullion. One of the leading names in the gold bullion industry is PAMP Suisse, a Swiss refinery that is renown for both the quality of its gold bullion products as well as its aesthetically pleasing designs. The signature artistic design featured on PAMP Suisse products is Lady Fortuna, the Roman goddess of luck and fortune. She appears on PAMP Suisse minted bars with a blindfold over her eyes and a spiral cornucopia pattern. These minted bars make for convenient storage with their uniform rectangular design and raised edges, making for easy and efficient stacking. PAMP also produces poured gold bars, which have a rougher appearance and rounded edges. The newest innovation from PAMP Suisse is the Multigram gold bar, which gives you the flexibility of having gold in smaller one-gram increments. The Coin Explorer also highlights gold bars from the Sunshine Mint Company, the United States' largest domestic producer of gold. Sunshine Mint gold bars have the advantage of being .9999 fine, or an incredible 99.99% pure. Check out this informative video on how to choose the right gold bar for you!

With websites charging for shipping and premiums still up a little... Why not consider adding "junk silver" to your stack if you're trying to buy silver on a budget. If you're of the mindset that "silver is silver"... then load up google maps and search for coin stores in your area. Next time you take a drive out of your town, hit up a coin shop and check out what they have. You might get lucky!
