    Bullion vs. Investment

    The Bullion category encompasses both modern made items and/or historic coins no longer produced – mainly made from gold and silver but they can also be minted in other metals as well.  Gold bullion coins that are dated prior to 1933, are considered to be semi-numismatic and are in high demand by savvy investors because these coins are of high quality, limited supply, and have additional privacy benefits. Due to their increasing scarcity and quality these Bullion coins carry a slight premium. It’s usually a nominal amount between 5 to 15% above the value of the metal in the coin. Most modern made bullion coins have a premium ranging between 3-15% depending on supply and cost of manufacturing. Most savvy investors looking to buy Bullion coins will buy semi-numismatic gold bullion coins because they are a desirable investment for their portfolio. The also carry the added bonus of not requiring a 1099 reporting form when you decided to sell them! For those wanting to see ideal returns on these coins, we recommend holding bullion coins from anywhere between 3 months to several years. However, it can vary depending on the coin.

  3. Bullion vs. Bullion Plus

    Bullion vs. Bullion Plus

    Although Bullion and Bullion Plus share a similar name, they are different categories for coin investors and collectors.  Bullion covers both coins and bars of precious metals.  Their value is based on how much of the precious metal (gold, silver, platinum, or palladium) contained within each product.  With the cost of the precious metal, production, shipping, and the market demand, gives bullion items a small premium above the market price of the metal. What that means is simply this - the value of the coin is usually slightly more than the amount of precious metal it contains and is very easy to track.  Since Bullion is closely tied to the spot market prices for precious metals, it is ideal for the investor looking to hold onto their assets for under six months, and want to speculate purely on the value of the precious metal climbing in these shaky financial times.

  4. What is Bullion?

    What is Bullion?

    Bullion, made of precious metals such as Gold, Silver, Platinum and Palladium, is a category of investment that covers coins, bars, and rounds. Their value is primarily dependent upon the quantity of the metal in the coin and are produced in large qualities. This means that they carry a very small premium above their cost, when compared to other categories we offer. As with all precious metal investments, the more of one item there is on the market, the lower the price. Typically, Bullion bars are the most well known in this category and are sold in sizes ranging from 1 gram to 400 ounces. However, when talking about Bullion coins, the most actively traded ones today are the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf, American Eagle, and American Buffalo. These three Bullion coins are so popular they typically have the best bid/ask prices over other items such as bars. Since the Bullion coin prices are so closely tied to the fluctuations in the price of metals, these are ideal for a short investment with the potential for a good return.
