actually, i'm opposed to purchasing 'gold you can hold'. I have, from time to time,
purchased gold online as an investment. it's all on paper although i suppose i could go to the bank and demand it in my hand (Cumhurriyet coins?). I never
tried and never considered it.
the problem with buying gold and keeping it 'in the bank' is that everytime you
want to cash it in, the bank takes a commission fee...same with buying it.

I definitely will go to my local branch and ask them what my options are for
investing the money somewhere but yet keeping it 'liquid' for emergencies.

thanks for all the suggestions ... food for thought.



When you have a safety deposit box it is entirely up to you what you put in it and the bank does not require any info regarding contents. It is private.
When you wish to sell your gold , take it to the jeweler you trust and know- sell it back to them- they don't take much. Each coin is dated and the older ones are less valuable than the later ones. When buying the coins most people choose the cheaper option as it will increase in value anyhoo.

I wonder if I've misled you. I think what I'm talking about are gold certificates.
Although I'm not even sure that's what they are. I purchase them online
same as liquid funds. It's all 'on paper' and the value changes daily.

I don't like keeping 'valuables' that can be easily misplaced or stolen.
I rarely have cash on me for a number of reasons, mostly because I
tend to spend it when I have it!!

At any rate, I may be entering into a new venture in the coming months
and there won't be any money left to invest!!

And so it goes!!

Have a good day. Weather here is simply gorgeous this time of year,
especially since the heat wave has ended.

ciao.
