					Investing in gold or silver can be both exciting and profitable. But this
form of investing is not for everyone. While it sounds simple, the wrong
decisions can be financially devastating. For this reason, you should
learn how and where to buy gold or silver and how to make secure
transactions.

Let's begin with the basics. Gold   and silver are international
commodities that trade on a daily   basis. Their prices are largely
determined by the value of the US   dollar and world events. This is
nothing new. Since ancient times,   gold has been the basis of the world
economy.

When the New World was explored by Spain, special mints were made to
create Spanish gold and silver coins. During the 1800's gold traded at
$20 an ounce. That price rose to $35 per ounce in the early 1930s. When
former US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt stopped people from owning
gold coins, many of them were melted. In the mid-1970s, it became legal
again to acquire gold and its price then rapidly adjusted to about $200
per ounce. In 1980, it reached $800 an ounce and later crossed over the
$1,000 mark.

Gold collectors today have the option to purchase gold coins, gold bars
as well as silver coins or silver bars. The ideal way to buy gold is in
person with cash. For your protection, buy only from reputable dealers.
You'll find many reliable gold and silver dealers throughout the world so
that should not be a problem. Sometimes all it takes is to open up the
phone book or visit a local pawnshop. Do a little research or ask for
referrals. Family, friends or business colleagues are other sources of
information These are just some of the easy ways to buy gold or silver.
