All investments involve risk - bullion coins and bullion bars are no exception. The value of bullion coins and bars (e.g., Gold American Eagle Coins, Kilo Gold Bars, Silver American Eagle Coins and 100 oz. silver bars) are affected by many economic factors, including the current market price of bullion, the perceived scarcity of the coins/bars and other factors. Some of these factors include the quality and current demand and general market sentiment. LBCAC,LLC. encourages the customer to fully understand that both bullion coins and bars can go down as well as up in value, investing in them may not be suitable for everyone. Since all investments, including bullion coins and bars, can decline in value, the customer should review and understand all the risks involved before purchasing; and have adequate cash reserves and disposable income before considering bullion coins and bars as an investment.
