Buying Silver & Gold Bullion Online

Both silver and gold are and have been coveted stores of value far longer than any other competing money or currency.

Governments and central banks diversify their savings and prepare for an uncertain future by buying gold bars and officially owning close to 1/5t of the world’s purported above ground gold supply (combined jewelry, scrap, and bullion).

Silver and gold have the longest historic track record as dependable money without default. By their inherent natures these two monetary metals continue to be sought after and coveted by human beings all over the world.
