Why Buy Gold Coins & Gold Bullion?

Buying gold today is not just for "investment" reasons alone.  The #1 goal of Gold owners should be to secure wealth from the folly of the U.S. Government and the Federal Reserve.

Buying gold is a trade out of risk. Usually it's a trade out of U.S. Dollars sitting in cash, bank CDs, bonds, or U.S. stocks trading near record highs.

We also believe you should buy gold today as a defensive trade despite the outstanding gain potential for gold. Thousands of our clients have been elated when the value of their Austin Gold doubled, tripled, quadrupled, then quintupled in value.

Best Reasons to Buy Gold Today

• Buy gold as an alternative investment to holding risky paper dollars.

• Buy gold to protect family wealth from future inflation.

• Buy gold as an alternative to holding bonds or bank savings paying less than inflation.

• Buy gold for freedom and independence from government intrusion into our lives.

• Buy gold as insurance against terrorist attacks on our economy. 

Buy precious metals on dips- like we’re in today.  They’re rare in a bull market.

Long-term Benefits of Buying Gold This Century

Buying Gold in the 21st Century has paid off handsomely as Gold outperformed Stocks, Bonds, and traditional holdings. If you prefer to think of gold only as an investment, since January 1, 2000, gold has averaged annual gains of about 25%.

We feel almost everyone should own gold as a defensive strategy to avoid the disastrous consequences of frequent stock market “corrections” and crashes. In the worst of times for stocks, gold protects your life savings from falling to zero.

Gold will never become worthless. The history of the U.S. Stock Market abounds with stocks that soared, crashed, and became worthless.

During the Dot Com stock market bust of 2000, the entire NASDAQ Stock Market lost 80% of its value. Every $100,000 invested in stocks became worth only $20,000.  Millions of people lost everything as dot com companies became worthless. Keep that in mind as investors today rush to buy FaceBook, Pandora, Yelp, LinkedIn etc.

Terrorists Threaten All Stocks
Lest we forget, after the 9/11/2001 Terrorist Attack, U.S. Stockholders lost $1.4 Trillion Dollars in valuation in just 7 days. Stocks can go down in a hurry while gold protects in a crisis.

Buy Gold for Privacy & Protection

For a fact, buying Gold circumvents and counteracts many risks including the Federal Reserve’s massive money printing machine that is destroying the U.S. Dollar. Today, we recommend our readers have a core holding of 5% to 10% (at minimum) to protect from the real probability of a dollar crisis created by Washington’s expansive borrowing and spending policies paid for by the Federal Reserve creating trillions of dollars of paper money. 

We believe that in the coming years rising inflation or hyperinflation is bound to destroy a substantial portion of the buying power of the U.S. Dollar– whether or not we have a dollar crisis.

Outright Bank Theft in Cyprus

After the Cyprus bailout, the risks increased dramatically for anyone holding savings in banks. Politicians and IMF bankers thought up better ways to steal the public's wealth. To save the banks in Cyprus, the International Monetary Fund recommended a tax of 9.9 percent on Cypriot bank deposits that exceed 100,000 euros, as well as a tax of 6.75 percent on smaller deposits– they called it a one-time tax. Sounds more like robbery to us.

Let's also discuss the various ways to buy gold that may or may not achieve your safety goals.

Gold Stock Warning

Please do not buy gold stocks unless you fully understand the following–  

Gold stocks are highly volatile and highly speculative investments by nature. 

The success of a gold miner's stock is dependent upon the corporation’s management decisions, environmentalists not slowing or halting the opening of new mines, workers not striking, and ever-changing government policies in far off places where gold can still be found. Then, there's the low quality of today's raw Gold ore and whether a mining company can operate the mines profitably at current and future gold prices.

That's a lot of risk.

Beware of Gov't Seizure of Gold ETFs

Wall Street has also invented another demon as they moved from selling "mutual funds" to hyping ETFs.  We recommend that you do not buy Gold Exchange Traded Funds if you have the safety and privacy goals detailed above. Gold ETFs will do you no good when you need your gold the most, in a crisis. You need your gold at hand in any emergency.

Worse yet, you could lose all your ETF Gold leaving you with a paper IOU like they did in 1933.

We also have the risk the government may attempt to seize certain types of gold, as they did under President FDR. By comparison, if the government attempted to seize the gold of American citizens, it would be nearly impossible to determine who owns gold, then chase down millions of Americans and then attempt to take away their gold coins by force. But it could happen. If you are concerned about gold confiscation, please call 1-800-928-6468 for a list of gold coins exempt from confiscation or reporting when you buy or sell under current laws.

In summary, we believe Gold Coins in your physical possession are always the safest, wisest way to own Gold,.
