What to Consider Before You Buy Gold in West Des Moines


When you buy gold, you are investing in a tangible asset with no counterparty risk and one of few assets that can provide privacy and confidentiality. No one has to know you own it!

Investors buy gold coins for a variety of reasons. Many long-term investors buy gold to diversify their investment portfolios and wealth, while others own gold for growth against financial uncertainties and the effects of inflation.

These are a few things forWest Des Moines buyers to consider before investing in gold:

  • Check for dealer complaints at the BBB
  • Buy as close to spot price as possible
  • Analyze the medium to long-term trends
  • Be aware of telemarketer high-pressure sales tactics
  • Buy from a reputable dealer like CMI

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


Many high-capital investors in West Des Moines buy gold bars because they command a smaller premium over spot price than gold coins.

Buying at a lower price per gram makes gold bars one of the most lucrative ways to invest in gold. Investors who plan to hold gold for long-term investment and high-volume gold diversification prefer gold bars.

However, gold coins are also a great way to invest in physical gold. They offer greater portfolio flexibility, easy liquidity when you decide to sell, and carry legal tender values. Buying gold coins is considered a conservative and secure financial investment.

We offer both forms of gold to West Des Moines investors. These are a few of our well-known gold coins and gold bars on the market today:

  • American Gold Eagle coins
  • South African Krugerrands
  • Royal Canadian Mint Gold Maple Leaf coins
  • 1-Oz. & 10-Oz. PAMP & Perth Mint bars
  • 100-Gram 99.99 purity gold bars
  • 1-Oz., 10-Oz., and 100-gram gold bars for IRAs
