It is true that silver and gold possess long-lasting qualities most other forms of investments don’t. What is more important is to get the best prices when it comes to investing in them, especially coins. It is only natural that any savvy consumer considers the timing of their buying decisions. It is a question almost every investor asks: when is the best time to invest in coins?
Invest in Coins at the End of the Year
Many gold coin and silver coin dealers launch an end of the year sale. During these sales, they may discount some good coins by five percent, 10 percent, or even 15 percent. It goes without saying that such dealers do not offer fresh stock at these discounted levels. However, you can still find perfectly good coins listed in these sales. As an investor, it is important that you decide whether your money is better spent at the beginning of the new year or at the end of a calendar year.
Gold and Silver in General
January is a great time for gold coin investments. Why? It historically is the best month of the trading year as many investors choose to realize losses from the previous months (e.g. November or December) and realize stock gains to defer their tax liability. Additionally, the start of the year allows them to start new investment programs. In the case of silver coins, March is typically flat for the metal. You should consider investing in silver coins in June, August, or September.
