And you do not get that premium back fully when you sell them.
Silver usually has a higher commission on BOTH ends because the coinbroker has to ship the stuff.
There is no Sales tax on bullion when you buy over $1,000
When you sell under $10,000 in bullion you do not have to report it to the IRS. (Nor does the store.)
It is important to take actually physical delivery because when systems/ societies crash,
you would be a fool to believe the "bank" will be open and / or honor your contract.

Do you want more reasons? Americans are defaulting on their mortgages, becoming homeless.
