Buying, owning, and selling precious metals and numismatic coins carries risk and has legal and tax implications. The price and future value of precious metals and collectibles are based on many factors and are subject to market, economic, and political conditions. Past performance is no guarantee of future value and you can lose money.

The retail price of precious metal bullion is based on the current market “spot price” for that particular metal type, plus a market “premium.” Premiums range from 2.5% to 15%, depending on market conditions and the quantity and type of metal purchased. Offers for Bullion buyback are based on the current market “buyback” price, which means that to break even on the resale of bullion, the buyback price must increase by at least the original premium paid.

Further, buyers and sellers of physical precious metal can lose money if current buyback price is less than their original retail purchase price (i.e., original spot price plus premium), together with any applicable storage or transaction fees. For example, a buyer of precious metal will likely lose money if they quickly buy and sell bullion before the buyback price exceeds the original purchase price plus any applicable taxes and fees. The value of physical precious metals fluctuates and may rise or fall over time.
