There are ups and downs (literally), a number of metals to choose from, and can be one of the best investments ever made when it comes to a person’s portfolio. As the business’ landscape changes from day to day as far as what people are collecting and why, the vast amount of dealers out there in the bullion game stretch across these United States. So what separates them? Variety, and we believe that we have that particular spice needed for your life.

Morgan: United States Chief Engraver SeriesThe United States coin library is extensive, isn’t it? From half cents to half dollars to dollars and more. From the design processes all the way down to the metal compositions, American coinage is complex and ever-changing. But let us ask you this question and we want you to be quick about it: when you think US coinage, what is the FIRST coin you think about? Some might answer the American Silver Eagle. Others might answer with Lincoln Cent. If we had to put betting money on it when it came to our customers as well as our employees, a large portion would say the Morgan Silver Dollar.

Every minute of every day, someone is diagnosed with a form of cancer. We all know someone who has gone through or is currently going through the uphill battle, but we all also know someone who has lost that battle. Cancer does not discriminate and we all know that oh so well. One of the most leading causes of death in women is breast cancer.

There is no other way to put it really. In a consumer society, we identify too much with materialistic things that lose their value the moment we buy them and only continue to do so over time to the point that we donate them or just end up throwing them in the trash. We are all guilty of it. It is time we become more sensible in our approach to consumer products which in turn, translates into the way we gift to others. In this changed approach, we land on silver and its benefits both present and future. What is so special about silver?

This is the dictionary’s definition of such condition of state. But to those who have been diagnosed with, lived with, lived through, and lived beyond such a thing like cancer, that definition is incredibly vague. Being a survivor of cancer, no matter what kind, means strength, courage, love, appreciation, celebration, and gratitude. According to the National Cancer Institute, as of January 2019, it has been estimated that 16.9 million individuals within the United States are cancer survivors.

Their designer, John R. Sinnock. Known as one of the greatest coin engravers to have ever served the United States Mint, he was a prime example of how far United States coinage had come since its very beginnings. Born in Raton, New Mexico in July of 1888, Sinnock was interested in a number of different arts and had a flair for sculpture at an early age.

This proclamation is a plea to Americans near and far to make it a priority to pay attention to their bodies and to pay attention to all the risk factors that can increase a person’s likelihood of developing cancer and what to do to reduce them. April is National Cancer Control Month and its importance has been made clear and evident ever since its approved resolution by Congress during President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s term. President Roosevelt signed the National Cancer Institute Act on August 5th, 1937, in attempts to kickstart the future conquest of cancer.

They are a field of their own in a way. Some collectors make it a point to collect ONLY commemorative coins. Some remain vintage in their finds while others stay the course in moderns. Regardless of preference, commemoratives have a huge impact on coin collecting and one of the most regarded United States Chief Engravers has been one of the leaders in making it so: Elizabeth Jones. Born in Montclair, New Jersey, on May 31, 1935, Jones took an interest in arts.

What is a commissioning ceremony you might ask? This happens when a soldier receives his second lieutenant shoulder boards as well as takes the oath of office. But in addition to both those things, an exchange of a silver dollar takes place as the importance of this in the ceremony is still highly received. The ceremony itself occurs at the apex of a soldier’s years of study and training that has taken place.

If you like to buy an occasional coin or bullion item for yourself, but are just as likely, or even more inclined, to buy the items for family and friends, then you may be a “Gifter”. Coins and precious metals like silver and gold make great gifts that are not only beautiful, but may also increase in value over time. Sharing your knowledge about the value of owning silver or gold or any other precious metal is a gift in itself to others, but furthermore, giving the physical gift of a bullion piece can mean a lot too. Not only are you giving a gift that can increase in value with time, but you are also passing on that knowledge and hopefully interest onto the next person!...

If you enjoy assembling bullion or coins based on dates, designs or other themes, or you just like to own certain pieces because of the history behind them, then you may be a collector. There are many options in both precious metal bullion and numismatic coins to form a collection around. Generally speaking these bullion pieces or coins will call for higher premiums simply due to a collector value, design intricacy or even historical significance or rareness. This would include but not be limited to Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars, Mint & Proof Sets, certified and non-certified bullion or coins, Government Minted bullion...

Owning physical precious metals is a great way to prepare for many crises’. Another survivalist mindset factor is wanting to buy the ‘cheapest’ silver and gold possible,in other words survivalists are not buying silver and gold for its numismatic value, its collector value or even necessarily its beauty or design; they are buying as close to the current spot price lowest premium) as possible and when they think it is the best time to buy according to market conditions and any blogs, groups and/or forums they have been reading...

If your main focus is building and preserving wealth for your future, then you may be an investor. Diversifying your other holdings (like a 401(k), mutual funds, savings accounts, etc.) with precious metals is a great way to make sure you do not have all of your eggs in one basket! There are even IRAs that accept certain precious metals as an asset while keeping the tax benefits associated with an IRA account type; if that is something that piques your interest, SilverTowne facilitates accounts of this type (see more information here).
