Finding the perfect gift for a friend, family member or spouse is a challenge. Instead of giving a Christmas sweater, box of chocolates or smartphone that will be outdated before it comes out of the box, why not consider something with long-term value that will show you really care? A Precious Metal gift is thoughtful, interesting and can be a great investment. If you are struggling to find that truly special gift this year, consider one of these ways to share investment-quality Precious Metals with your loved ones.
Gold or Silver Bullion – If you are looking to buy Silver or Gold as an investment, consider gifting it as well. Giving a Gold or Silver bar or round is an impressive gift and one that will not be soon forgotten. If you are buying Silver online, you’ll find a number of options at APMEX for bullion minted around the world.
3-D Coins – On the opposite end of the spectrum from the more “basic” option of a bullion bar or round are the truly high-tech 3-D coins — a great gift for anyone who thinks they are “too cool for coins.” Minted in a number of countries worldwide, 3-D coins are available in designs honoring occasions, events and even animals. The excitement of 3-D is a great way to introduce the collectible pleasure of Precious Metals to the next generation.
Gift Sets – There are a number of items designed especially for gifting. These often include a number of coins in a themed set, packaged for display and collection. One popular example is The Avengers Set, which is a great way to share the love of coins and Silver with a superhero fan. There are many other gift sets available, including ones with Gold.
Proof Sets – Coin collectors love proof sets. These collectible-quality coins are labeled and protected, making them an ideal gift for both coin collectors and Precious Metal investors. While you can still pick up the traditional yearly proof set, there are other options available today that are anything but traditional. Consider any one of the back-dated U.S. Proof sets. They’re a great gift for those interested in collectible coins.
Classic Coins – This is what many people first think of when they think about how to buy Gold or Silver. These can be anything from bullion items like a 2014 Silver Eagle to a numismatic item like an older year Peace Dollar. Classic coins are always a great gift idea, and they’re available in both low-price stocking stuffer options as well as pricier choices that could become family heirlooms.
