For the portion of your precious metals stash that you intend to keep locked away for long-term wealth preservation, I have always supported low-premium bullion bars and 1-ounce rounds. They are the most practical and cost-effective ways of investing in physical gold and silver. And do not EVER levergae or buy precious metals in the paper market. Always buy physical and store it safely.
But what about the bullion that you want to actually be able to use in emergencies, for barter and trade, or for gift giving?
In these and other situations, smaller-sized units of metal may be more practical. And they are becoming quite popular, including as gifts this holiday season. Learn mare at DitchTheDollar.com
