For new investors, figuring out where to buy precious metals can be confusing.  In order to help those of you who want to get started, here are the places I have purchased metals from and how I invest in precious metals…

Stored (Secured) Coins and Bars

Precious Metals ETFs

  • AAAU -> This is backed by allocated gold
  • GLD
  • SLV

Physical Coins and Bars

Note: I do not recommend that people buy precious metals from pawn shops due to security concerns and the risk of buying counterfeit metals.

I cover the pros and cons of investing in precious metals in my e-book Investing In Precious Metals.
