When I made my first PHYSICAL bullion purchase in 2008 – on eBay – I had no idea my life was about to change.  Five years later, my lifelong connection with financial markets has been totally – and permanently – severed; and as Marketing Director of one of the nation’s largest bullion dealers, have devoted my life to PROTECTING others from oncoming, inevitable HYPERINFLATION.

Back then, I knew NOTHING of the bullion business – in the slightest.  Fortunately, I was not harmed by my ignorance; although several times, my naivety created materially stressful situations.  However, I now understand all aspects of how gold and silver coins are manufactured, distributed, and sold; and consequently, aim to educate you as much on how to buy bullion, as why it should be done.

My initial 2008 purchases coincided with the industry’s first, MAJOR bullion shortages; but at the time, I didn’t realize the gravity of the situation.  It was then I learned my first valuable lesson in bullion buying; which frankly, should be THE MOST IMPORTANT factor one considers.  That is, you must KNOW if the seller has inventory on hand before buying; and equally important, TRUST that if they don’t, they will get you the product as promised.  Many PM sellers – particularly online – either lie or are purposefully vague about their inventory status; and if they are not PROVEN to be trustworthy, don’t be surprised if the money you send them remains in limbo for a significant period of time.  The chain of promises – from Mint to customer – is not small; and thus, you MUST be confident that the “link” in the chain you deal with is ROCK SOLID.

Once I realized “all sellers are not created equal,” I stopped buying online; and instead, sought those I could TRUST personally.  Not that buying online is necessarily “bad”; as Miles Franklin is BY FAR the largest PM bullion seller on eBay, and will unveil an online trading platform in the future.  However, when it comes to PROTECTING your life’s savings, NOTHING compares to the PERSONAL SERVICE received from a real person – at a reputable firm.  And remember, bullion sales are completely unregulated; thus, if someone “screws you over”; you have little – if any – recourse.  Miles Franklin has not lost a package, check, or wire in 23 years of business; or received a single registered complaint.  Thus, its A+ Better Business Bureau rating – and industry-wide reputation for trustworthiness.

Since 2008’s Global Meltdown I – when we first experienced significant product shortages; Miles Franklin’s President, Andy Schectman, has been touring the continent telling people of how dire the industry supply situation is…

depleted supply

…as succinctly described last week by Jason Hommel; who, by the way, gave me my first silver round – in 2006…

Silver Shortage of April, 2013 – Jason Hommel

Andy has been DEAD ON in his commentary; as with GLOBAL silver inventory hovering near RECORD LOW levels (nearly all of which is sitting in investor vaults, NEVER to see the light of day)…


…bullion sales at RECORD HIGH levels – for both gold


…and silver


…and NARROWING intervals between premium spikes


…particularly in “the ultimate fear product” (I vociferously reiterate, you “MUST OWN JUNK SILVER”)”; I cannot overemphasize the necessity of considering “REPUTATIONS AND RELATIONSHIPS” as you consider PROTECTING assets with REAL MONEY…
