Yes, I have gold on the brain but
the fact is I love all precious metals varieties. Silver, check.
Platinum, double check. While all precious metals are as old as the
earth, my love is of this century. Not only do I think baubles made
of precious metals are beautiful, I also love adding precious
metals varieties to my overall investment strategy so I can plan on
kicking backed stop working at some point during my life.
I am not unique, I too know that cash is king and always try to have some assets such as paper currency and silver coins on hand in case of a financial emergency. What I love about collecting precious metals varieties most? Their value is based on weight (IE 1 oz gold is the unit for quoting gold prices) and that means I can hold copious amounts of wealth in the palm of my hand. Something about that makes me feel so empowered both in the now and in regards to my future.
Precious metals varieties are so darn pretty. As an average American gal I have seen countless movies and shows where women are decked to the nines in pounds of jewelry crafted from precious metals varieties. Whether the precious metal variety was used as a symbol of love or simply as a status symbol I will always equate owning precious metal varieties to glamour and hope.
My last reason for why I love precious metals varieties is probably the most logical, value and increasing market share. Historically gold prices, silver prices, platinum prices, and the prices of all precious metals varieties have increased over time. My belief is that regardless of the precious metals varieties in question, the value of the investments will only increase in the future. I am sure my love for the precious metals varieties will grow as well.
