If there’s one thing that’s true about gold and silver prices, it’s that they’re always changing. As we write this, silver is up and gold is down, yet by the time this post is published on our blog about buying and selling gold, the reverse may be true. That said, what factors influence gold and silver prices? Let’s take a closer look.

It may be tough to admit, but the holiday season can be a stressful time of year.
There are office parties to plan for, and family gatherings at home to cook and clean for.
If your kids have school events to attend during the season, you’ll probably find yourself needing to pick up at least a few extra presents or party supplies.
And if you’re traveling out of town to spend Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or New Year’s with family, you’ve either got plane tickets to buy or gas tanks to fill up.

If you’ve lived in the Bucks County or Montgomery County areas for any length of time, you’re probably familiar with the Best of Bucks readers’ choice contest that’s organized annually by the Bucks County Courier Times. Our local Doylestown newspaper, The Intelligencer, runs its own readers’ choice contest each year as well — it’s known as the Best of Bucks-Mont.
Every autumn, both papers list the community’s favorite businesses, products and services, and this year, Doylestown Gold Exchange & Jewelers came out on top in not one but two different categories. To say that we’re both humbled and incredibly grateful would be a huge understatement.
In The Intelligencer’s Best of Bucks-Mont poll, we were honored as “One of the Best Jewelry Stores” in the two-county region. Which isn’t bad for a shop that’s been in business for less than three years! Some of you may remember we actually won the very same honor in last year’s contest.
But much to our surprise, both papers awarded us the top prize in a brand-new category, Best Gold & Precious Metal Buyers.

As we see an ever changing world, the one thing all people see today is that the dollar in their pocket buys less and less each day. Doesn’t matter if you make $30,000 a year or $200,000, we all try to live within a budget from what we earn, and each one of us are feeling the pressure or our ever devaluing dollar.
One of the easiest and most relevant examples used to demonstrate preservation of purchasing power is thePre 1965 US silver quarter. All quarters (dimes and half dollars too) minted before 1965 are composed of 90% silver. Back when they were circulated, that quarter was worth 25 cents due to its content and not what was stamped on it. Today’s coins are the opposite. They are worth their face value based on the proclaimed value. In reality, their melt value is a fraction of what they are assumed to be worth and exchanged for. Here’s the comparison:

Gold and silver being used as currency can be traced back hundreds or even thousands of years. There is a reason that these two metals were viewed as having a value above all others in almost every time in our history and around the world. Our currency was originally backed by gold and silver, so that for every dollar or coin made, there was physical gold and silver to back it up. If you look at an old $1 silver certificate, you will see that is says “Payable in silver coin to Bearer on demand.” This means when our currency was backed by these precious metals, you could walk into a bank and get a dollar’s worth of silver for that $1 note!
