Where to Buy Gold & Silver
Owning precious metals provides you with the most direct way to protect your wealth from paper money devaluation with no counterparty risk. Gold is the only financial asset we know of that is not simultaneously somebody else’s liability. That makes it rather unique. We think everyone who can should have at least some exposure in their portfolio to gold and silver.
There are many ways to invest in gold and silver, but for the individual who is just starting out, we highly recommend beginning by purchasing at least a few ounces of physical bullion.
We have a lot more to say in our guide to Buying Gold and Silver. We consider it a must-read, especially if you’re ultimately planning to invest a substantial portion of your wealth in precious metals.
Peak Prosperity's Endorsed Solution for Buying Precious Metals
We have recently joined forces with several other prominent economic research firms to offer the Hard Assets Alliance (HAA). The HAA makes the same advantages enjoyed by the major financial institutions available to the individual bullion investor.
We think think this new solution offers the best combination of benefits (price, service, storage options, security, etc) for the widest audience of retail customers looking to buy, store or sell precious metals.
