Buying Silver

As an investment strategy, buying silver, trading silver and selling silver has supported economies public and private, funded business and arts programs and facilitated first world emergence from nations. It has also backed responsible banking, currency formats and free markets, as well as many other aspects of civilization building for thousands of years. It has been a staple to world development and growth that has existed since the dawn of recorded history. The act of buying silver as a small investor or coin collector can be very easy when guided by an informed strategy and sound investment policies. There are countless ways a newcomer can go about buying silver. Buying silver can come in the form of buying silver coins, investing in physical bullion by buying silver bars or rounds that come in a pure format, buying 90% junk silver bullion coins, buying silver jewelry, buying silver flatware and silverware, buying silver stock from Wall Street or simply by buying silver nuggets that have pulled straight from the earth just to name a few.

It’s important to remember that the safest course of action when buying silver, or buying any precious metal, is to make sure you’re buying silver from a respected and knowledgeable source and in a secure environment. Buying silver for the first time investor or collector can pose my questions. Am I buying silver in the right way? Am I buying silver for the right reasons? Is buying silver a sound investment strategy? Can buying silver make me rich? These are just a few of the many questions industry experts must answer on a daily basis. First, the newcomer to buying silver must answer the most basic question. Can I afford buying silver without adjusting my economy so drastically that I would be forced to sell silver in the short term? If the answer to this question is yes, then buying silver could be the right approach in shoring up a long term investment strategy.

Because that’s what buying silver is all about, the long term. Unless you’re playing with millions of dollars in capital, it’s nearly impossible to become rich from precious metal investments in the short term.

My Aunt recently passed and she lived in the outskirts of Las Vegas. While my sister and I went through her estate we found a number of items that neither of us considered keeping, but our aunt was clear in her will that she wanted us to use her things to make a profit and in turn use that money to help our futures. We shopped around, especially not being from the area, and got a lot of negative experiences just on the phone. People were rude, uninformative, and really just gave us a feeling they wanted to rip us off. It made us think of those dirty pawn shops you “hear about”. Finally I called Nevada Coin and Jewelry and the whole day shifted! We described a few pieces of jewelry and they helped us figure out initially a general value based on the metal. Of course, they did explain the importance of actually coming in and examining the pieces individually. That level of service over the phone got us through the door. When we went to the spot we were greeted with the same level courtesy, but the professionalism when going over each item and it’s value was through the roof! They took the time to explain why each item was worth what amount and even gave us a little bit of history on the styles. At the end of the day, my sister and I walked away with a sizable amount of money to put towards my son’s college fund and my sister’s vet school. Thanks, Nevada Coin and Jewelry!

I am a brazilian and had the chance to deal with Nevada Coin. I was there to sell some gold coins and they paid me the best price I could fetch in Las Vegas. They are professional, courteous and trustworthy. Before visiting their premises I got a tentative appraisal by phone which I found reasonable. In the shop the attendant offered to approach the manager to get me a (gasp) BETTER price. Do yourself a favor and don’t bother talking to their rude and unprofessional competitors. They will treat you like a moron and quote prices accordingly. For Nevada Coin, five Stars all the way.


I recently got divorced so I wanted to get rid of some of the jewelry my ex-husband got me. I found Nevada Coin and jewelry searching the web. When I called the guy that answered the phone was friendly and willing to quote me a price per gram. I went to their store on Flamingo, Avery whom I spoke to on the phone tested my items using some kind of x-ray machine. I could see that some of my jewelry was not the karat I thought (some lower some higher). He paid what he quoted on the phone no bait and switch. It took less than 15 minutes got my cash and got rid of some bad memories. I would recommend this company if you are looking to sell jewelry.

We were really pleased with the help that AJ gave us concering our gold coins and watches. I don’t think we could have received a better deal anywhere. All of the personnel at Nevada Coin & Jewelry were very professional. We will recommend them to our friends.

My friend and I came here to sell some coins and jewelry. We first saw Scott about some coins. He was very friendly and knew his stuff. Afterwards, he brought us over to Sheila who looked at our jewelry. She was also very nice and professional. We will definitely come back here again. GREAT PLACE!!!!
