Do you own any gold bullion? Neither do I, but I want to. My brother-in-law told me about buying gold a long time ago. One of is very first jobs was working for a coin dealer. He learned all about collectibles and investments from his boss, who owned the shop. After he had worked there for about a year, the boss sent him out on road shows to buy and sell the rare coins. He did very well and learned a lot, and I remember him sharing a lot of what he learned with the rest of the family.
You can buy bullion online now and use it as part of your retirement plans or your investment portfolio. All of us have to get a handle on retirement plans at some point. He was smart to start his plans when he was young. I’ll admit that I’m not that smart, but I have been thinking about it and I’m about ready to make the commitment to do it.
The first thing I’m going to do is buy gold bullion and build up what I own until I reach 20% of my annual income. Then I will diversify my portfolio with other investments. But I’m starting with gold so it will appreciate and be worth more as I go. One thing that I learned from my brother-in-law was that gold always gains in value. Its not fool proof – nothing is – but it’s probably the safest investment a person can make in today’s world.
