My obsession with gold bullion is now infiltrating my dreams. Last night I dreamt of stacks of gold coins, 1 oz gold bars and even stacks of metallic items that made me want to buy silver. While during daylight hours I ponder, think and scheme about ways to how to invest in gold my night visions are bursting at the seams with visions of gold and wealth. This got me wondering if my subconscious had some insight into my goal to amass precious metals and perhaps into my future in relation to gold and silver prices.
Okay, calm down, stop laughing at me. Even a gal who does not fear the rise of the living dead can still relish the imagination and the world of the unknown. Rumor has it that the art of dream interpretations date back to 5000 to 4000 BC; Wikipedia cites a cultural history linked to precious metals dating back to the Bronze Age circa the 4th millennium BC. The auspicious timing of the events have me thinking that dreaming of buying gold and silver was a popular pastime in those days of yore and now I am interested in seeing if my dreams are foreshadowing something awesome!
Dreaming of Gold and Silver
This day just became much easier to face as if my dreams of silver bullion and gold coins is a good omen. According to the finest dream interpretation sites the WWW has to offer, my life will be smooth sailing. The color of the gold bullion I had is symbolic of many traits including my personal sense of determination as well as some type of improvement in my surroundings, plus since I saw gold coins I have received the added perk of the symbolism for success and wealth. Silver is also golden in dreams as that hue stands for fair play, immaculacy and for providing a bit of protective juju, whew.
Fortunately for me I dreamt of the metals in a solid state, my night vision revealed stacks of Gold Eagles, Silver Eagles and solid forms of the metal ranging from 1 oz gold to silver proof coins in a variety of shapes, sizes and mints, all of which are excellent omens. If my dreams were filled with gold dust, I may not be so chipper as that interpretation of the precious metal may be symbolic of regret and having made and horrible gaffe.
Gold and Silver Buying Reality
Sadly, the reality of my surroundings nowhere equal the splendor of wealth I experienced in my dreams. However, my dream state has helped reaffirm my personal commitment to buying gold and silver as a way to enhance my waking hours. Although I can rely on a positive dream to support my decision to buy gold and silver I have to use real life skills, planning and dedication to make it happen.
That means I now have to keep my eye on silver and gold prices, market updates (Merit Gold is a decent gold dealer I have found that sells gold and silver, has a positive association with the Better Business Bureau and accurate market update news) and make personal spending sacrifices in order to fund my long term silver investment and gold investment strategies. Step by step, I am fully committed to turning my dreams of gold bullion into my waking reality.

The climate of economic uncertainty has led a lot of investors away from the stock market; and increasingly, large numbers of people are choosing to buy gold. Unfortunately, this has led to some unscrupulous companies entering the marketplace. That’s why it’s important to buy gold from a company you can trust like Merit Financial. Merit Financial is one of the most highly respected gold companies in the US.
For over two decades, Merit Financial has been known for its highly ethical business practices and is one of the safest places from which to buy gold. The company’s founder keeps the customer satisfaction level extremely high by treating his clients the way he would want to be treated. His rule for good business is quite simple; it’s the golden rule. It’s the way he conducts his business and the way he lives his life – ethically and responsibly. He is the man many call the “Abraham of Gold” since he believed it was a good idea to buy gold before anyone else did.
Merit Financial’s integrity extends beyond its internal business practices; the company reaches out to the community in a number of generous ways. Merit Financial helps veterans and is a corporate sponsor for the Wounded Warrior Project. The WWP is a program that assists those who have served our country and been severely injured in the process. The company is also involved in supporting the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life and other charitable organizations.
Over the years, the founder has forged more than a successful career; he has formed lifelong bonds with legions of loyal customers. Clients respect his deep personal knowledge and the savvy expertise of those he hires. Merit Financial employs the best minds in the business, like its Executive Vice President, who is a Harvard graduate. He provides the market with some of the most insightful and thoughtful opinion pieces in the industry. His views are routinely posted online and are considered a “must-read” by seasoned investors. Knowing how to buy gold as a safe investment makes access to the respected staff at Merit Financial an indispensable financial asset.
When new customers approach the account executives at Merit Financial, they immediately ascertain the needs and concerns of each individual because they understand that everyone is different. With years of experience in the field, they know that there’s no one-size-fits-all guide to investing. For this reason, their recommendations are never the cookie-cutter type, but rather strategic, highly personalized financial plans for investing in precious metals.
Although investing in gold appeals to all investors, it is especially attractive to those looking for a safe place to put their retirement savings. The incredible volatility of the stock market and global economic uncertainty are always factors that increase the desirability of gold. The reasons for this should be fairly obvious. Gold does not fluctuate wildly and in fact, when other investments become more uncertain, it inevitably increases the value of gold. Those saving for retirement want as little risk as possible; which makes gold a great choice.
When I was a kid, I would roll my eyes whenever one of my elders would make a comment about yesteryear. According the the tales passed down from one generation to another, my great-grandfather was a giant (although it says 5’11” on his passport, I had a cousin suggest he was 7’3”) and that my...
When I was a kid, I would roll my eyes whenever one of my elders would make a comment about yesteryear. According the the tales passed down from one generation to another, my great-grandfather was a giant (although it says 5’11” on his passport, I had a cousin suggest he was 7’3”) and that my father had to ride a sheboygan to get to school in winter (he was a city dweller, no way). While I may indeed suffer from an occasional bout of revisionist history, the one thing I know for a fact is that pre 1965 silver coins made by the US mint may be more valuable than face value.
When television was new device and rock-n-roll was being born, American silver coins (including dollars, half-dollars, quarters and dimes) contained up to 90 percent silver. However, as America evolved, behind the scene practices nudged silver prices upward. At one point, the price of silver per ounce caused the face value of dollar silver coins and other legal tender to be less than the actual silver content in the coins.
Partly because of the 1964 shortage of silver coins in circulation, the Coinage Act of 1965 was passed. That law required that all coins made of 90 percent silver had to have 1964 as the official mint date on the coin face. Any coin featuring a date later than that year is a coin struck of a sandwich of silver over other alloys (including copper).
If you are lucky enough to end up with any pre 1965 silver coins as spare change, pulling it out of circulation could lead to a profit over time. Maybe you simply want to get a jump start on your collection. Merit Gold sells bags of 90 percent silver coins by weight.
Buying gold can be an exhilarating experience, especially after receiving delivery from Merit Gold or whatever other coin dealer you may work with.

Buying gold can be an exhilarating experience, especially after receiving delivery from Merit Gold or whatever other coin dealer you may work with. There is nothing like holding that freshly minted 1 oz gold or to make anyone feel like a million bucks. Just imagine the thrill one prospector felt when he discovered a 12 pound gold nugget in Ballarat, Australia.
This lucky fella is my new hero and will make me look at the next beachcomber replete with metal detector in a different light. Using the precious metal finder, this anonymous prospector unearthed the find. At the moment I am writing this, according the BusinessSpectator the price of gold was $1681 per 1 oz gold, making his find worth over $322,000 in weight alone. However experts have estimated that because a gold find of this size is so rare, it can add another $200,000 onto the pricetag.
There is no arguing that amount of gold can provide a life changing experience for nearly anyone, but the odds of making such a find are slim. That is why it is wiser to stick to your day job and save up the cash to buy gold. Since buying more than an 1 oz gold at a time may be cost prohibitive, it is good to know that there are smaller gold investments for the taking in the form of 1/10 gold American Eagles that have been selling for under $200 each on Merit Gold.
Any-hoo-ha, this is not the first time a healthy sized gold nugget was found in Ballarat, Australia. There is a long history of the precious metal in the area, dating back to a gold rush in the mid 1800s. There are stories of ranging from tales of 8 pound gold nuggets to a tale of a 639 pound whopper!

We’ve been talking a lot, my husband and myself, about our plans for the future and for our retirement; we’re both concerned about the US economy and where it’s going, as well as the financial crisis in Europe. My husband thinks that we should be buying some precious metals – specifically US silver coins – and after doing some research on my own, I’m thinking it’s a good idea.
US silver coins are available as bullion – that means they’re 99.9% pure silver – and there are also collectors versions of US silver coins available, too. Some of these are of historic value and worth quite a lot, beyond the amount of actual silver that they contain, and other US silver coins are valued for their “melt worth” which is how much silver is in them when they are melted down.
I’m really leaning toward the Silver Eagle Bullion Coins to start off our US silver coins investment project. It’s lovely, it’s pure silver (well, as pure as they come) and because they are produced by the United States Mint, they are guaranteed for weight and purity. And they are the only coins that are allowed to be included in a silver individual retirement account (IRA), too, so we’d have a head-start on that, if we decide down the road to open one of those.
I’m also really drawn to the U.S. Mint’s America the Beautiful US silver coins; these are five ounce silver bullion coins and they celebrate or commemorate U.S. national parks and national recreation areas. What’s so impressive about these US silver coins is that they’re larger than the Silver American Eagle and contain more silver, too. I think that my favorite of these designs, so far, is the one for Yellowstone National Park, though the Yosemite coin is lovely, too. Either way, they’re for both investing and collecting.
If we were going to be buying US silver coins to start a collection, though, there are an awful lot of choices to decide between. According to Silver Coins Today (http://www.silvercoinstoday.com), there are a lot of modern US silver coins available to start our collection, including commemorative coins, silver sets, uncirculated silver coins, and then there are the historic coins that are about 90% silver rather than being bullion-grade.
All of this talk about buying US silver coins – and the research I’ve done – has settled it, for me. I’m going to tell my husband that yes, we should buy US silver coins, now.

All kinds of people buy silver dollars. Sometimes investors got the collecting bug when they were children after receiving silver dollars as gifts on special occasions. Others discovered the fun of collecting and investing in silver dollars later in life. To supply the demands of silver dollar collectors, the US Mint continues to produce new collectible coins with a very wide range of appeal.
To honor the 75th anniversary of the March of Dimes the US Mint began producing and selling commemorative silver dollars in recognition of the organization in 2015. There was an actual piece of legislation that instructed the Mint to make a half a million silver dollars. http://www.silvercoinstoday.com/silver-coins-today-news-blog/
History buffs might be interested in knowing how it all got started. In the beginning it was actually called the National Foundation for infantile paralysis which was designed to combat the polio epidemic. This was the organization that began and was headed by Franklin D Roosevelt when he was President in January 1938. Back in the day, it was a common tradition for American children to donate dimes to the organization for charity and this is how it got its nickname the March of Dimes. Obviously, the nickname became very well-known – so much so that in the late 70’s, the organization decided to adopt the nickname and lose the original.
From its inception the organization was the leading nonprofit foundation that was dedicated to the health of young mothers and their newborn children. Roosevelt’s strong support of the organization is one of the reasons that FDR’s portrait has been on the dime for over sixty years.
There was a special bill put through the house which would further the production of the commemorative coins in 2011. A Republican Congressman from Illinois introduced the bill and it was matched with widespread agreement. In a rare act of bipartisan support, the bill passed handily so that the March of Dimes would be commemorated with a 75th anniversary coin.
All of the profits from the commemorative coins are going to fund research that will support the causes of the March of Dimes which are the prevention of birth defects, premature births and infant deaths.
