Physical Trading versus Paper Trading
In many markets the speculative trade on a metal may vastly outweighs the actual
physical trading. This is especially true when you factor in the trading of metal
back equities and mining companies. For most investors is simpler and easier to buy electronic
shares representing a metal or correlated to its price than to buy and receive or
store physical metals.
Precious Metal Coins as an Investment
While buying storing large quantities of metal can be cost (and space) prohibitive,
many long term investors choose to maintain quantities of high value bullion and coins
produced by popular and trusted mints. Some of the more popular coins are the American Eagle,
Canadian Maple Leaf, South African Krugerrand and Australian Kangaroo.
