Investing in Gold and Silver – Are You a Collector or Investor?

Tip of the Week banner AGCB

Determine if You’re a Coin Collector or Investor Before Your First Purchase

We meet with dozens of folks a week that have a variety of different types of coins, bullion and numismatic coins that they’re interested in selling. In many cases, we see a hodge podge of different types of items without a clearly defined goal for the collection.Gold and silver coins atlanta gold and coin buyers

We recommend that you first determine if you would like to purchase coins and bullion as an investment or for collectible purposes before delving in. This will allow you to better determine if an item you’re considering fits within your desired portfolio.

There’s nothing wrong with either and in fact, some people choose to do a bit of both, which is perfectly fine. However, much like a stock portfolio, you should have your core holdings that make up a majority of your portfolio. You can then supplement it with coins or bullion that you’re drawn to that won’t have a significant impact, but that can provide a bit of diversification, or nothing else – bring you pleasure when you look at them! 

If you let the coin dealer that you’ve chosen to work with what your intent is, they will be able to better cater products or provide suggestions that align with your goals. On the other hand, if you reach out to a coin dealer, they don’t ask what your goal is, and begin recommending a number of high premium items, you know that they have their best interests in mind – not yours. In that case, continue reaching out to coin dealers until you find one that you feel will be your ally and can best guide you on your investing or collecting path.
