The Gold/Silver Ratio Explained Anthony Anderson
Despite the massive amounts of information available these days to just about any precious metals investor with an internet connection, the same time-old questions seem to persist: Is it the right (or wrong) time to buy gold or silver? Should I buy both, and if so, should I buy more gold or more silver? Should I sell my gold to buy more silver, or should I dump my silver to buy more gold? At the heart of these questions are two major unknowns: when to buy and how much to buy. Look closer, and these lead you to yet another set of questions: are either of the metals undervalued or overvalued relative to one another?...

Gold and Silver Investors’ 8 Commandments for Avoiding Rip Offs Stefan Gleason
For every promising investment opportunity you come across, there are multiple opportunities for bad-faith brokers and hucksters to try to rip you off. It could be undisclosed commissions and fees in an annuity, unwanted accounts opened up by a banker seeking additional fees, trades sabotaged by market manipulators, or any number of other schemes. Rip-off artists, unfortunately, operate within the precious metals space as well. Most recently, a scammer posing as a government agent in order to gain people’s trust was convicted of selling counterfeit gold bars and phony Morgan silver dollars. He took one investor for $11,000, according to reports. You can avoid this type of scam as well as other common cheats when buying or selling precious by heeding the following guidelines...

Should I Buy “Collectible” Silver? The 3 Criteria to Look For Jeff Clark
There are several answers to that question—they can be a great way to diversify, they’re unique in the marketplace, and they might reflect values that you share. But the biggest answer of all is this: because you might make a bigger profit. That’s a bold statement, because like most things in life, there are no guarantees. But once you’ve got a meaningful stash of silver Eagles or Maples Leafs, a nagging question will start to tickle the back of your brain: do I just keep buying the same thing? At that point you realize that maybe you do want to diversify your physical holdings, or maybe you do find our rounds attractive, or maybe you would like a silver product with a message that is more meaningful than just an image of a dead leader or a bird...

Gold and Silver Taxes in the U.S. GoldSilver Staff
There is a lot of conflicting and inaccurate tax information on the internet about taxes on gold and silver. And if you listen to the wrong sources, you can get hurt. For example, we’ve found a few websites that claim the sale of American Silver Eagles is exempt from capital gains tax, based on an obscure law. While the law may read that way, that doesn’t mean it translates into practice with the IRS. In this case, it’s patently false. Here’s what you need to know about taxes when you sell gold and silver…

Because coin premiums can vary significantly among coins and in different market conditions, they are an important aspect for buyers of bullion coins to understand today. Investors are well advised to inquire about and compare coin premiums before making their purchase of bullion coins. Read More

Understanding The Silver Price Gainsville Coins
The spot price of silver is the constantly changing price at which silver is traded on the global markets. Unlike futures prices, spot prices indicate the value of silver for immediate delivery. Spot prices are used by financial institutions, silver retailers, and investors to calculate the price at which varying silver products are bought and sold. Whether they be physical products (such as bars, coins, or bullion) or financial instruments (such as ETF shares), the spot price of silver is the basis for which those products are sold and traded.

Buyer Beware! Theodore Butler
Most men treasure personal reputation as their most valuable possession. I know I do. With reputation comes responsibility, especially if you put your words in print for a wide audience. The last thing I want to do is to write something that would cause damage to the reader, particularly in financial matters. You don't get a positive reputation by tearing other people down, or by making unsubstantiated claims, or by stealing someone else's thoughts. You earn it by introducing and explaining ideas that help people. Read More

A Brief Guide to Buying Silver Jason Hommel
The silver story is simple: Since the 1870's, the trend has been to stop using silver as money (as a medium of exchange). This has reduced demand. Then, around 1945, electronics started booming, and since silver is the greatest conductor of electricity, a lot of silver has been used up. Today, the world has nearly run out of silver, just as paper money is beginning to fail around the world as gold begins to explode upwards in price. As investment demand returns to gold and silver for savings (as a store of value), like it will for no other commodities, physical silver prices will explode past them all, because monetary demand will return.

How to Buy Silver, & Avoid Getting Scammed Jason Hommel
People continually ask me about all kinds of physical silver investments. I have avoided writing this article for years because people are always telling me to not say anything bad about anyone, or your competition. But I don't need to name names, and liars are not my competitors. So, here's how to avoid getting ripped off. Never buy silver from TV ads. Ads are expensive. TV ads sell silver for up to $50 or $100/oz., up to ten times more than the silver price. They sell as "rare, limited, collectibles" things that are mass produced, and newly minted. In coin shops, you can buy the same products that were sold on TV ten years ago, right at the cost of the silver itself. Read More
