Bullion vs. Bullion Plus

10/28/10 2:12 PM

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.

The Bullion Plus category encompasses high quality and/or historic coins no longer produced – mainly made from gold and silver but they can also be minted in other metals as well.  Bullion Plus are in high demand by savvy investors because these coins are of high quality, limited supply or both. Because of their increasing scarcity and quality these Bullion Plus coins carry a slight premium. It’s usually a minor amount between 5 to 15% above the value of the metal in the coin.  Most savvy investors buy Bullion plus because they are a desirable investment for their portfolio and have the added bonus of being beautiful! For those to see ideal returns on these coins, we recommend Bullion Plus items for smart investors looking to hold onto their assets for a minimum of 6 months.
