What You Should Know Before Buying Gold in Walnut Creek


“Should I buy gold as an investment?” is a common question among investors.

It is wise for all investors to maintain a view of the economic climate. When traditional assets fail to maintain their purchasing power and cannot keep pace with inflation, many investors buy gold bullion as an investment.

During stable times, investors buy gold coins and gold bars to add stability to their retirement account, to hedge against inflation, and diversify their portfolios.

We provide a secure way for investors to buy gold bars and coins online using our easy transaction process with delivery right to the front door. These are a few recommendations for Walnut Creek investors who have decided to buy gold:

  • Determine the type of physical gold to buy
  • Check the BBB for dealer complaints
  • Always take immediate physical delivery
  • Inquire about the premium percentage

Investing in Gold Coins or Gold Bars – Which is Better?


Choosing whether to buy gold coins or gold bars is most often determined by the highest objectives of the investor.

If your objective is to hold gold as a short-term investment or portfolio flexibility, you will likely invest in gold coins. Highly capitalized buyers in Walnut Creek prefer gold bars over gold coins because of their lower premiums over the spot price and long-term investment, quick and high-volume diversification, and easy storage.

Some investors buy quantities of each because both are in high demand and rank among the safest purchases.

We offer a wide range of standard bullion gold coins and gold bullion bars from worldwide government mints available to Walnut Creek investors. These are a few examples:
