Gold IRA

Gold coins as investments have been extremely popular for centuries. They are among the most popular and sought-after investments and collections for precious metal enthusiasts, particularly bullion coins like the 1 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin.

They’re easily recognizable and valued as a result of their popularity, which makes them easy to trade. They also generally sell at a very high premium, especially when compared with other highly volatile investment opportunities such as stocks.

Ideal for long-term investments particularly, coins are more than worthwhile if you’re looking to add to your investment portfolio with an age-old, classic, profitable precious metal entity. They’re low-risk and invaluable in the long run and can provide you with an extremely strong foundation to work from when it comes to your investment portfolio, as well as a worthy addition to your current collection.

Certain states place sales taxes on physical precious metals, including gold.

Fortunately, due to our location, Wall Street Metals does not have to collect sales tax, although consumers may be liable to pay local use tax.

If one is just trying to acquire as much gold as possible, both gold bars and standard gold bullion coins are a viable option. If one is simply looking to purchase gold for the lowest price possible, gold bars will often be the most cost-efficient way to buy gold bullion. Bars carry lower premiums than coins because they have no face value, are not backed by government mints, are rarely considered collectables, and most gold bars are easier to make than gold coins.

For example, today a 1 oz American Gold Eagle coin may be bought from a dealer for $1355. That same dealer is also offering a 1 oz OPM gold bar for $1323. That’s about a $30 difference per ounce of gold bullion! Gold bars can also be purchased in fractional sizes such as 1 gram, 2 gram, 5 gram, 20 gram, 50 gram and more. The fractional sizes, however, will typically carry larger premiums than a standard 1 ounce or 1-kilo bar due to higher manufacturing costs associated with producing smaller bullion items.
