Coin Show This Weekend
The precious metals market is still hot, but not as hot as a few months ago.
Right now, the experts are talking about getting better profits out of silver than gold. Also, the price of gold is so damn high! Buying silver doesn't cost nearly as much.
There are lots of coin collectors at these shows, and there are more coin collectors than precious metals investors. But I don't see many kids collecting coins now.
It's a pity that there's not much jewelry at coin shows ever since gold went through the roof. I like to buy jewelry for Mrs. AOW, but the material she likes - unusual pieces with nice stones such as sapphires and diamonds just isn't there. I guess that a lot of people scrapped their jewelry for precious metal value.
