Still, Glemser cautions people who visit him for a precious metal investment consultation that they shouldn’t buy gold or silver with the expectation that they’ll make money.

Should I Buy Gold Bullion Bars or Gold Bullion Coins in Bucks County?

gold bullion coins in bucks countyIf you’ve been thinking about investing some of your hard-earned money into gold, as so many people seem to be doing these days, you may be wondering what form of gold bullion you should purchase. That is, should you buy bars or coins?

Ultimately, the decision is up to you, although there are a number of facts and details that may inform your decision, and that will likely make it an informed decision.

But first things first: It’s crucial to understand that while most people think only of gold bars when they hear the word ‘bullion,’ gold bullion coins certainly exist as well. Bullion, just to be clear, is simply a refined and stamped weight of precious metal.
