Lots of ads for selling gold coins- have you seen them? What is best for you? It is a great deal for the sellers of the coins. They make a lot of money off you. But how do you make any money? You hope the price of gold goes way up; what if it does not?I'm sure you have gone into the grocery store and bought your food with gold- haven't you? What did the cashier do with your gold coins? Yes I am being sarcastic.If you want to make money with gold or silver, I suggest you buy stock in gold and silver mining companies. You can buy them through your broker (discount broker!). It is easy to buy these companies online. You can buy big companies, medium or small companies. This is a great way to make a gold play on the market. Like any company stock, they go up and down with the market. You make a profit when they go up and take a loss if they go down. The same way all stocks react on a daily basis.
