Helping to insure your investments with gold and silver.


A Rare Investment

Most financial planners encourage their clients to invest in the stock market.  While we don’t discount this as part or your overall investment strategy, we believe that precious metals are an important way to diversify your portfolio and recommend having at least 10% of your portfolio in precious metals as an “insurance policy” against volatility in the currency markets and a bearish stock market.

Before the reader starts exploring this sight consider these facts from the 1930s:

A $20 bill could buy $20 dollars with of goods or services or be exchanged for a $20 gold piece.

Here are some prices from the 1930s:

Men’s suit – $19.75  one $20 dollar bill or one gold piece
New Chevy standard car – $465 23.25 $20 dollar bills or 23.25 $20 gold pieces
Six room house in Mansfield, Ohio could be purchased for $4000 – 200 $20 dollar bills or 200 gold pieces

Fast forward to 2016: 

$20 bill cannot purchase man’s suit but a $20 one ounce gold piece can
$465 in $20 dollar bills cannot purchase a new Chevy car (or any car for that matter) but 23.25 one ounce gold pieces can purchase a mid priced car
House in Mansfield, Ohio cannot be purchased for $4,000 in $20 dollar bills but 200 one ounce gold pieces will easily purchase a six room home

This is the power of precious metals.

You may also want to consider purchasing IRA approved precious metals with which to fund an IRA. This is fairly similar to using currency to fund your IRA in that you don’t hold or administer the money you put into your IRA. Establishing a precious metal IRA is done by deciding what to purchase. Money is then paid directly to or transferred from an existing IRA/401k by directing the bank or plan administrator to pay the desired investment to the chosen storage facility. The chosen depository then pays our wholesaler for the precious metals you have chosen and the metals are shipped to the depository under your name and account number.

From the most ancient of times, gold and silver have been valued as a substance with intrinsic value. Why gold as opposed to other materials? Gold does not corrode and has a perpetual existence. Silver has similar properties. In Egypt, King Tutankhamun’s tomb contain gold treasures, which included his funerary mask. His coffin was solid gold and weighed almost 250 pounds. In the Bible, gold is similarly precious. In ancient times, gold is valued in cultures from Asia Minor to South America. Gold has been refined and cast into objects and jewelry as far back as 5000 BC. Gold coins began being minted in 800 BC in Asia Minor. Mycenaean, Greek and Roman civilizations used gold coin as currency.
