Safety and Opportunity, stay tuned!
At Express Gold Refining, we are always proud ourselves of the level of insight over the years we have shared with our customers whether they are a business to business buyers/sellers or consumers.
However, when it comes to investing, the number one question has always been which one is the best bullion that passes the test of time.
If you are wondering of which product to invest in, it is fair for us to assume that you are a first-time bullion investor. If not, hopefully you will discover a bit more insight to make the decision to work with us and very memorable experience.
The first step to be considered is your budget.
Your amount of disposable cash on hand will affect not only the product to pick from but also your level of time tolerance. What we mean by your time tolerance level is how long you feel you can hold on to it? We have so many clients that will buy a gold bar and pass it to the next generation. Therefore, it is fair to say that their time tolerance is at the highest level.
Time sensitivity is not just a simple thing as you could be interested in a more frequent buy and sell approach; as we know, buy low and sell high. You might even consider reaping up your old jewellery to sell to take advantage of the high price of gold.
Second, should you buy Gold or Silver?
Gold is the most popular investment for most precious metals investors. It is much more liquidate as well as many factors that influence its price such as the jewellery demand, and its value is a lot less volatile than Silver.
On the other hand, Silver is very speculative and very attractive due to its lower price compared to gold.
So, in short, gold is better than Silver if you are looking for more stability, but if your cost to entry is more important to you, Silver becomes the better investment; however, way more volatile, which can be great for gaining in a short period.
Third step, should you Buy coins or bars?
Bullion coins are popular and easy to trade and generally sell a bit higher than bars. It comes down to a personal preference. Further in this article, we list our very best pick, which is a mix of both solutions.
The fourth step minted vs cast.
Like all precious metals products, the coins and bars carry a premium above the spot price. The premium you pay is affected by several issues, such as the product’s production process, the precious metals offered in the market, the type of bar, and many others. You will realize that most of the time, casted bullion is more affordable when compared to the minted ones; however, the casted ones are popular when looking for a personal and exclusive touch added to the bar.
Here are some products to consider when starting investing in precious metals:
