Why You Should Buy Gold and Silver
For thousands of years, gold, silver and other precious metals have held their value. They have out-performed all other long-term investments. With the U.S. government debt approaching $20 trillion, the gold and silver price has been in an uptrend. Remember, gold has always been the best safe haven against inflation, government debt and unstable currencies.
In the 1940s you could have purchased a high-quality men’s suit with a $20 bill or a $20 gold coin. Today, you still can buy a nice suit for a $20 gold coin, but a $20 bill would not even pay for the alterations. Inflating the value of our currency is built into the fabric of our society. Today it’s easy to buy or sell gold and silver coins at a minimal transaction cost.
Many financial planners recommend 20-25% of your net worth be comprised of gold and silver coins that provide instant liquidity in a time of need. That means real gold and silver in your hand, not fiat paper money. Gold is a world currency, easily convertible into hundreds of currencies around the globe. Central banks of many of the largest countries store gold for their citizens’ protection.
At Mint State Gold, we strongly recommend gold and silver ownership and provide all the information you need on how to get started.
