A Little Known Way to Buy Precious Metals

American Silver Eagles

October 25, 2014 | by Steve McCurdy

For small investors, the marketplace for buying and selling physical gold and silver has long been dominated by “Cash for Gold” merchants and small local or regional coin dealers. There are great variations in the quality and reliability of these merchants, and for the most part they don’t offer any guaranteed buybacks or storage options. You simply pay your money, take possession of your metals, and hope they will still be around if and when you want to sell.



Because of the ease of trading (particularly selling), many investors prefer to buy paper gold and silver from ETFs like GLD. The problem with this is that you never actually see any gold and silver, and if you ever want to take physical possession there is no assurance that your ETF will deliver.

Hard Assets Alliance (hereinafter “HAA”) has been formed to solve all these problems by providing its customers with a long list of unique benefits and services, among which are the following:

• HAA provides the ability to buy, sell, store and take delivery of your metals with the click of a mouse using its simple and intuitive online interface,

• HAA assures its customers of the lowest available pricing by bidding all orders out to a group of 15 leading wholesale dealers from around the world,

HAA partners with three of the world’s leading non-bank commercial storage vaults for storage, insurance, and transportation services for customers. The vault partners are three of the world’s best - Brinks, ViaMat, and Malca Amit, and transportation and storage are insured by Lloyds of London. All fully-allocated customer accounts are verified by the KPGM CPA firm, and these holdings and valuations are reported daily,

• At the time your order is placed you either choose either to store your metals in a Gold Bullioncommercial vault of your choice or you can take physical delivery. Your vault location choices are New York, Salt Lake City, Zurich, London, or Singapore. If you opt for physical delivery, or if you decide you want your stored metals delivered, they will arrive at your address of record within two business days,

HAA sells gold, silver, platinum, and palladium in both coins and bars, ranging in size from 1/10 of an ounce to 1,000 ounces,

• HAA does not engage in any risky derivative, hedging, or paper trading activities, and all trades are executed immediately in cash, and

• The best feature of all for small investors is that HAA requires no minimum purchase!

As much as we love William Devane, we don’t believe his favorite dealer can match these features.

We recently price checked HAA against two of the largest and lowest-priced traditional gold and silver wholesalers – American Precious Metals Exchange (APMEX) and KITCO. We compared prices for 1 ounce American Silver Eagles and 1 ounce American Gold Eagles. On October 19, 2014, the prices (for a quantity of 1) were as follows:

1 Ounce American Silver Eagles
HAA - $ 20.18
Kitco - $ 20.82
APMEX - $ 21.29
1 Ounce American Gold Eagles
HAA - $ 1,294.56
Kitco - $ 1,295.20
APMEX - $ 1,301.49

GBI’s Advisory Board includes a who’s-who of well-known names, including Arthur Levitt, former Chairman of the Securities Exchange Commission, General Wesley Clark, four star general and former Supreme Allied Commander, and John Hathaway, Senior Managing Director of the Tocqueville Funds.
