Let me say that Gold and Silver is a great way to start saving for the future.  (It's shouldn't be your only investment, but it should be one of them.)  The price is always moving up or down, but you will never lose the money you invested.

Gold and Silver is a way to get started and a great way to get your kids and grand kids thinking about and developing a habit of saving.  Plus it doesn't cost a lot of money to get started.

Bullion and Coins:  

Bullion for our purpose here means - metal rounds and bars.  With their flat, disc-like shape, rounds are often confused with coins; however, unlike coins, rounds do not have a circulating face value. Their value is based solely on precious metal content.  Bars are precious metals pieces which have been pressed into a rectangular shape. Because these forms are easy to stack on top of each other, they are the easiest to organize and store. Bars are popular choice among investors because, like rounds, they can offer the best price to buy in at.

Coins are the most recognized of the gold and silver forms because of their use as currency. Their stunning designs make them ideal for customers who want to display their investments. And due to mintage restricting by the government, coins are often produced in limited quantities, making them quite valuable as both collectibles and investment pieces. Their rarity is also the reason they carry higher premium rates than other precious metals bullion.  The main advantage of coins is that they can increase in value even while the price of the Gold and Silver remains the same.

A Word of Caution.  Never, never invest in anything listed as "Clad".  Clad simply means metal - any metal.  I have seen many people purchase auction items listed as 24 karat Gold Clad bars = A metal bar covered in Gold = Totally worthless as an investment.  I have seen them pay 20 to 60 times what the metal is actually worth.  When they go to exchange this junk for money it will be a really sad day for them.

​We do offer quite a few collectible items that are 24k Plated.  These are great for displays and gifts.  Now and then we have come across some highly collectible copper items - as they are made in a limited quantity and are no longer in production.  Some of the items have produced over a 100% return.  But again we are talking about a low cost item, $2.00 to $5.00 jumping up to $20 to $30.  And as you may know Copper has jumped in price from time to time - It's a very cheap investment metal.  And yes, If our item is no longer in production we will list that in the add.

And yes, Investors and collectors have already begun hoarding solid copper pennies. It will likely become more difficult to find pre-1982 pennies in the years to come, especially if the price of copper moves higher. Pennies are worth more than their face value today and if prices of the metals rise, an investment in the coins could pay off handsomely in the future.

Storing thousands and thousands of pennies takes lots of space. One thousand dollars worth of pennies equals 100,000 pennies, and $10,000 is 1 million pennies. If you could possibly get your hands on that many pennies, you may run into a storage issue as that many pennies weighs an awful lot.

On a smaller scale, nothing's wrong with sorting through spare change every week and putting the pennies in a container to save for the day when they could be worth a lot more.
Picture it as a long term savings account. If you are going to need the money right away - I would suggest opening a regular savings account. Real investing is long term - unless an event/situation of course drives up the market price sky high, then you can consider cashing it in.
