January 10, 2010 – Individuals invest in gold to preserve, protect, and grow wealth. As with all investments, keeping the cost of doing business as low as possible is important. It is possible to buy gold from a number of sources. The best and fairest pricing is most often found at well established, reputable gold exchanges. Those dealing in large quantities of gold have always enjoyed the discounts available to market insiders. Now, with the renewed interest by smaller investors in gold coins and bullion, companies such as the Certified Gold Exchange have established, in-house certified metals divisions offering the same excellent pricing previously only available to those dealing in large quantities of gold.
Gold exchanges will do business by telephone, Internet, or even in person. Reputable exchanges deal in certified gold bullion and rare gold coins, thereby setting a benchmark for later pricing and removing the question of just how rare and well preserved a coin will be considered to be on resale.
In dealing with a gold exchange instead of an individual dealer, the buyer or seller has access to the larger market and substantially better liquidity of their gold investments. It is especially important to have a clear idea of how many of a specific rare coin are available on the market and how well they are selling. This is information that a professional gold exchange will have and which an individual dealer will typically need to obtain from the gold exchange. As with all investments, a clear idea of supply and demand is paramount and a company like the Certified Gold Exchange can provide that information and more.
