I told you recently that I’ve been buying more American Gold Eagles, and a lot of you asked for specifics.
I’m happy to elaborate.
There are a number of ways to own gold. The best way is to own physical gold, and I like coins, which can be purchased from a number of reputable dealers.
The dealers I like personally are Kitco (www.kitco.com), Blanchard (www.blanchardgold.com), and JM Bullion (www.jmbullion.com). These firms offer a wide variety of newly minted coins, historical coins, and rare coins, as well as coins from different countries, such as American Gold Eagles, which are my favorite, South African Krugerrands, and Canadian Maple Leafs. You can choose from different weights, ranging from 1 oz. down to 1/10th oz. (and Kitco even offers 1/20th oz.).
They have great service, too. Buying gold is as easy as buying a book on Amazon.com. You can have your gold in hand in a few days. JM Bullion offers free shipping, while Kitco has a flat rate. Kitco is the only one that will ship gold internationally, so be aware of that.
