for Readers of our Blog you will be reminded we suggested buying these coins when Gold was trading around $920 ... now with Gold pulling back from its recent highs - it is highly recommended to look again at these investments. The US economy is spending more money and making more promises than it can possibly keep - at present everything is about Greece which will be a small story compared to what may happen with the US economy. So for the long term it may prove to be a very good idea to move into this area.
Also keep in mind most of these coins are limited editions - so they carry a value above the spot market. However if you prefer Gold and Silver Bullion that's no problem the Perth Mint produces those so you can buy from them and even store it with them if you like.
