What to Consider Before You Buy Gold in Ankeny


We aim to educate customers to help make the best investment choices.

You are making one of the two most conservative investments when you buy gold. However, knowing which physical gold form to buy is crucial to avoid losing 30% to 50%.

There are many factors to consider before you buy gold in Ankeny to ensure a wise investment that will ultimately achieve your highest potential return:

  • Which type of physical gold
  • Buying as close to spot price as possible
  • Knowing the dealer’s premium percentage
  • Choosing a reputable dealer

It doesn’t matter whether you choose to buy gold coins or gold bars as long as you buy gold bullion products rather than numismatics or collectibles.

Call to speak with a knowledgeable account executive, or visit us online to find valuable information about investing in gold or other precious metals.

Invest in Gold Coins or Gold Bars – What’s the Difference?


We maintain a sizable inventory and selection of gold coins produced by worldwide mints and a variety of gold bars in weights and sizes to accommodate the budget of any Ankeny investor.

One of the reasons we recommend putting your money into well-known gold bullion coins is their broad market. Gold coins offer easy liquidity, portfolio flexibility, and legal tender value when you decide to sell.

High-capital investors in Ankeny buy gold bars because of their lower premium over spot price. One of the most lucrative ways to invest in gold is buying gold bars at a lower price per gram. They are also a prime choice for high-volume gold diversification.

These are a few of our well-known gold coins and gold bars on the market today:

  • U.S. Mint Gold Eagles
  • South African Krugerrands
  • Royal Canadian Mint Gold Maple Leafs
  • 1-Oz. & 10-Oz. PAMP & Perth Mint bars
  • 100-gram 99.99 gold bars
  • 1-Oz., 10-Oz. & 100-gram gold bars for IRAs

Check our website for the price of gold coins at the time you are considering buying physical gold. If you have questions, call to speak with a knowledgeable account executive.
