2019 Christmas Gift Ideas For The Coin Collector

 

We're just days away from the biggest event of the year! Gift Giving! In actuality, it's Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa... This year's gift-giving holiday offers so many choices for everyone. Then again, for a coin collector, one thing's for sure. It's those precious gold and silver coins.

Back in 1964, Burl Ives sang the lyrics to the song, "Silver and Gold". It's a song that captured everyone's love for these precious metals. He wanted his listeners to know that these precious metals are highly valued and owning these precious metals would give us joy and pleasure. It goes without saying that the Burl Ives song still holds true today.

For example, when "Silver and Gold" was released in December 13, 1964, the price of gold was somewhere in the neighborhood of $35.10 per ounce while silver was priced about $1.29. Today, gold is valued around $1,466 while silver is around $16.76. Do the math and you'll find that your gold and silver metals are worth a lot more today if you owned them since 1964.

Now, now... I don't want you to be buying every gold or silver shining metal that's out there to give your loved one today in hopes that your investment will yield a handsome reward in the near and far future. You CAN but that might leave you feeling crushed in the long run. For one, economic cycles, supply and demand among others affect the price of these precious metals. But, if you're curious to know how best to get started on these precious metals, here's a Forbes article that tells you how.
