Kris has been in the precious metals business for over 35 years! Today, he answers some questions on why he started, advice for first timers and the coin he loves the most.
1. Kris, tell us why you got started in the precious metals business?
I always grew up loving gold and silver coins, so I decided to make a business out of it. I always thought they were beautiful and I loved the historical nature of them and how they helped shape the world we live in today.
2. What advice would you have for a first time investor or seller in gold or silver?
Be cautious of the people you are dealing with, spread your money out over time and stay on top of the markets. I would also diversify between gold and silver and stay away from collectible coins in the beginning. Just stick with investment type bullion.
3. What is your favorite coin that you have ever owned?
1899 Ten Dollar Gold Piece. It's the prettiest coin ever made.
