Gold Investing Made Simple

Hello and welcome to Gold Investing Simplified for 2017. If you are just starting out on your gold investments or simply want to find out more about buying/selling gold coins, you will find helpful information on this site and in my Popular Gold Coins video.

Investing in gold can get confusing but it doesn't have to be that way. My mission is to provide you with information that can help you with your gold investment decisions. Just keep in mind that only you can decide if investing in gold is right for you. I take no responsibility for whatever gold purchases you decide to make. 

You won't find a sales pitch for buying gold from me here since I no longer sell precious metals. I want you to benefit from my experience in selling gold and silver coins for one of the oldest, most reputable precious metal dealers in the USA.

Considering the powerful sources at work dedicated to keeping the gold price low (and therefore unattractive to the investing public), this is a small victory. Many gold experts say gold prices have much further to go from the current spot gold price seen at right.

In 2011 gold flirted with $1900 before dropping back in consolidation. During 2016, the high for an ounce of gold was $1365.40 while the low was $1061 (on 1/1/2016). There are no sure things in life but having a small portion of your total assets in gold continues to be a recommendation of a number of financial analysts.
