Gold is a naturally produced metal with fixed properties that cannot be duplicated by synthetic means. It is a “precious metal” for multiple reasons, but the main ones are its scarcity, unmatched beauty and its proven use in industry. In other words, we desire it and use it, but only have so much of it. Rare coins add distinction by using this beautiful precious metal in exquisite designs that were once traded as actual money for use by everyday people.

Silver, by contrast to gold, offers excellent value. The same conditions apply, but silver has a much greater abundance and availability. However, as it is used more and more in industry, we are beginning to see the supply dwindle. This is good news for collectors and investors as they will see silver become a rising star.
